    Morning matey.. Knees not so bad at the minute. Aching through the night. Bit sore but I've managed to drive Janet to work.. All good.
    Called in at my daughters to see her and the kittens. Stops me falling me asleep, need to be awake to ring nightmares, the useless bed company, they're really getting it in the neck this morning..
    Thinking of phoning watchdog... :x

    Hope all is good with the stress busting mate

    Well we took the art stuff to the unit and where sown around by a lovley lady called Karon head OT. Agreat unit with some great work going on, and fantastic facilites, Spoke to some of the Patients who gave a great account of the place. I allways think when i see these type of places there for but the grace of God. A whole group of people go through some form of trauma yet only one gets the Combat stress. Anyway it was a great place all run on charity to help our service people.
    From there we went to Telfpord i allways wanted to see the Iron bridge. a beautiful place where they really fleeced you or is called ripped you off. £6.95 for double egg and chips. No we headed home got something to eat later at a reasonable price. Not that i'm mean but that was stupid.

    Colin that looks an amazing place and the write up by the veterans is lovely, they really are looking after our brave men who deserve it after what they go through. It's great what you do to help Combat Stress Colin, your a hero for doing that I bow my head to you.
