NHS

 

So this past weekend, we had need as a family to make use of the NHS and emergency services. Its something we kind of take for granted, and I know we can see the pressures they face. They were fantastic in helping, caring and fixing which is what we needed. Additionally, they offer for the patient to stay in, or go home… As responsible people, on balance we chose to go home as family we were able to cope and tide the person over whilst appropriate medication kicks in.

As we hit voting day, I ask you all to vote, not just based on a headline, but on a fact based approach having considered the issues and things that are important to you. I don’t mind how you vote, but vote, and make an informed decision….

Cheers

Last weekend was the annual trip to Stirling – Touch

 
so last weekend saw the usual trip to Stirling to go and play touch. Slightly different this year in that Eva decided to come along and see what it was about. I’d explained it might be a little dull, but hey , she decided to tough it out. First up (and above) Stirling University and its hotel is very good as a value option. There is also the chance to walk about with a nice loch on campus.
Sadly the weather during the weekend, was shall we say, some what variable!. Sun, Rain, Thunder, Lightening, Hail, Snow…. everything….  Organizers of the event also had to contend with a lightening strike to the posts which lead to match abandoned!
On balance good fun, if not a little tiring.
