Luckily as I was perusing the very nice hedge trimmers the showroom was air conditioned so I took my time. Fatal though as I now have a Stihl long reach battery job which has emptied my wallet somewhat but definitely belongs in the smile thread. Now if it would only cool down a bit I can go out and test it.


Oh we have, or close to and a 2 week fire on the nearby moors (it looks like mist until you remember) and one of the reservoirs is now pretty much empty.


Still just young enough to enjoy it

That's a lovely line Seeker. Maybe reflective rather than melancholic...

Yep, they are depressing places. I've just been referred for genetic testing. As I've mentioned on here, mum has dementia, but it's a rarer type called frontal temporal or Picks disease. Apparently it can be passed down via a combination of specific genes. If you have that combination you will definitely get the dementia. What's more it is usually early onset, from the age of 45. Mum didn't start to show symptoms until her late 60s buy I'm 47.

So I've decided to get tested. Some friends have said I'm brave or stupid. Opinions vary. But I'm no longer in a relationship, I have no children. I'd rather know if I'm going to need full time care. That way I can a) plan for the inevitable b) not worry too much about how my pension is performing and c) start doing my bucket list before the illness makes me swear at people in the street, overeat junk food, stop feeling any empathy for everyone else and start running around naked with no concept of preserving my dignity. All symptoms of this disease.

And before anyone says it, yes I know I already do a lot of those things, but this way I'd have a proper excuse!

Sounds sensible to me. I think you made the right choice.

Lph, fingers crossed for you. Its not appropriate for me to joke about that being a perfect Friday night. But seriously, good luck.

On a plus side if there is one about being operated on. She's first of the day so got wheeled off nearly an hour ago already. I couldn't stand the hospital so a quick jog down the road and I am sat in a park with a coffee and breakfast in the sunshine. I definitely got the better day so far.

Halfords. I check stock online, it's in stock. I reserve it along with other items. Go to pick them up and they don't have it in stock, so they've put the wrong item in the middle of the other items I ordered and taped them all up so you can't see the wrong item. And shops wonder why people are buying online more.

Off to Amazon I go

LPH...just make sure you stay on here long enough to take photos when you decide to run around naked!

Seriously though, think you've made the right decision. Good luck with the tests.
