  • Afternoon peeps, What is going on with this weather - it's chucking it down atm and the lane is flooded in parts! Been to see Mary Massage Lady this morning who had a good old poke around and was delighted that the swelling has reduced. My foot fel…
  • Afternoon peeps, WtnMel, so sorry to hear about your brother. Much love to you and your family. It's always hard for a parent to outlive a child so extra hugs for your mum. It's difficult when someone dies intestate so I hope you manage to sort thi…
