Good Morning Sue,

Hope all is well with you, and the sun shining.

I had a phone call from Hong Kong today from the Duchess's sister. She is flying to Sydney tomorrow for a few days, then spending three week driving around NZ :-)

Hello :-D

Linda - you're not going to be yet? :-0

Tecwyn

Tecwyn Report 17 Apr 2014 22:34

Yes I may do that - goodnight

That sounds dangerous, ask the carer to put the chair out for you and cover it
Goodnight again

Tecwyn

Tecwyn Report 17 Apr 2014 22:33

Goodnight Linda - sleep well, :-)

Tecwyn

Wondrous yes :-D but will it work?

Tomorrow I may see if I can get the wheelchair into the garden - I did manage to get out there last week, but it was very difficult getting back again, particularly in one place, as there is nothing to hold onto while I hop up a step :-(

Time for bed I think, no nibbling your chocolate over night

LindainHerriotCountry

LindainHerriotCountry Report 17 Apr 2014 22:28

I am sure it will be a wondrous system which will work well

The ramps will probably appear just in-time for the winter

Tecwyn

Tecwyn Report 17 Apr 2014 22:26

Yes I have - I bought one on E-Bay, well my brother did it for me actually.

Someone turned up to see about the ramp today, and lowering the sink for me.

Also they worked out a way that I can get up the two steps that prevent me from getting to the bedrooms.
I didn't understand what he was talking about in the end, but doubtless all will be revealed in time - just hope I live long enough :-D

Have you got your garden wheelchair sorted out?

Tecwyn

Tecwyn Report 17 Apr 2014 22:19

They were apparently told to stay where they were - there was no order to abandon ship - many were trapped in crowded corridors - doesn't bear thinking about :-0

LindainHerriotCountry Report 17 Apr 2014 22:17

I have just been watching it on the news, I don't understand why more of them didn't try to get out

Tecwyn

Tecwyn Report 17 Apr 2014 22:15

I'd look like Zeberdee sp on a pogo stick :-

I can't believe how quickly that South Korean ship sank :-0 must have a huge hole in the hull, or was violently turned suddenly - that can roll a ship over - very sad.

It would be a one legged race with a difference :-D

Tecwyn

Tecwyn Report 17 Apr 2014 22:10

Now that would be worth seeing :-D

LindainHerriotCountry

LindainHerriotCountry Report 17 Apr 2014 22:07

Have you run away?

Tecwyn

Tecwyn Report 17 Apr 2014 21:34

I'd rather be famous for different reasons I think :-D

LindainHerriotCountry

LindainHerriotCountry Report 17 Apr 2014 21:31

You will be world famous, or at least a bit of you will?

Tecwyn

Tecwyn Report 17 Apr 2014 21:21

No my daughter didn't mind - it was good to spend time together doing something nice for a change.

I was pleased to be discharged. The surgeon has promised to let me know when the report on my case is in the BMJ - that should be interesting :-D
