Good morning from a wet Friday in England. We have ten days of stormy weather arriving today! Still, the rain keeps these islands green and lush. What are your plans for the weekend? Try my 10 point plan this weekend and let me know how you get on. 1) Chat with at least one person, in-person. 2) Make a kind gesture for at least one person. 3) Spend at least 15 minutes… Read More

     I have just been compiling my medication for the week ahead, into my medication dispensing boxes; known as dosset boxes.  Today, I am reflecting, with not undue concern, about the risk Brexit places upon the supply chain for my medication.      One aspect that is of major concern for me, on the subject of Brexit, is that of medications supply.  My Parkinson’s medication is now on the list of… Read More
