I cant believe all these photos of the snow when summer officially begins on Sunday. We are being told that this is what we will be getting every year now.

Seems global warming is here with a vengeance.

So we have had a freezing day even if we haven’t had this snow in Kent. We have a bitter wind. I took Louis out and the wind felt like it was needles hitting you.

I couldnt believe ray put his coat and wrapped up and wet out as I thought to the Garden. No he went down the road. My heart was in my mouth and I watched Ry come back so very slow so I went out and helped him in but he was on the steps.

I bought him in and he undressed and flopped on the settee. I hope he has learnt a big lesson  We just have to wait for the sun and a warmer day.

Another 2 weeks and he can drive again so he will be able to get about then.

I cant believe that I was researching and came across adverts for Asbestos products. I know its in India but that doesn’t matter  we need a world wide ban

Asbestos Products

Life is cheap isnt it -well I hate that fact.

Further, our exclusive range of product also includes SS Hose Clamp, MS Hose clamp, MIxed Steel Hose Clamp, Stainless Steel Hose Clamp, Mini Clamps, Keystone Boot Clamps, Embossed Band And Liner Clamps, Asbestos Textile, Asbestos Rope, Asbestos Yarn, Drill Chucks, Sabre Saws, Mitre Saw Blades, Diamond Blades-Marble Cutting, SDS Plus Chisels,  Pocket Screw Driver Bit Set, PTFE Thread Seal Tape etc.

I wonder if they export and it is getting into other countries. I cant see we will ever eradicate Mesothelioma there will always be someone hurt by Asbestos.

We are still receiving photos and reports of the ADAO Conference as people get home to tell us.

The British Lung Foundation have given help for us in this cold weather

Very cold weather, or very hot weather, can affect your lungs in different ways. There are some things you can do to help stay well.

Cold weather and your lungs

  1. Cold weather can also make a lung condition worse. These ideas will help you to stay healthy during the winter months.
  2. Make sure you keep warm by wearing layers of clothing when it’s cold – thermal underwear can be very useful, along with woollen tights and socks and make sure you have a blanket or shawl to hand
  3. Wear warm nightclothes during very cold weather
  4. Try and stay as active as possible to generate heat – get up, move around and try to do some exercise
  5. The recommended temperature in the living room is 21°C (70°F) and 18°C (64°F) in the bedroom
  6. Keep your home well ventilated – Air quality inside the home becomes more important in winter as most of us spend more time
  7. Check the weather before going out and elderly patients are advised to stay indoors as much as possible and keep warm
  8. If you have a bronchodilator, use it half an hour before going outside
  9. Make sure you carry your medication with you at all times as cold air can tighten the airways in lung disease patients making it harder to breathe
  10. Try to breathe through your nose instead of your mouth as this will help warm the air
  11. Protect your lungs by wearing a hood or scarf that covers your nose and mouth
  12. It is wise for patients with chronic lung conditions such as COPD or severe asthma to have the seasonal flu jab

We are working towards Easter now as it is at the end of the week and we have family coming down.

I dont buy Easter Eggs as they are so dear for the amount of chocolate in them. Now everyone is on diets and Ray cant eat Chocolate so I will have to buy fluffy chicks.
