    Hi @Mother ,

    I honestly believe that the cold damp weather makes arthritis sufferers worse I’m a bit of a history geek and watched a programme the other day about Roman soldiers and it’s no wonder they left Britain a few wrote how cold, wet and dark it was and how they felt better returning to Rome sunny climate ooh I wish I could just win the lottery and move but in the meantime I’ve got my hot water bottle, my painkillers and tens machines euro tomorrow I’ve just got to win it 🤩🤩😊

    take care
