All being well - in the near future - a gear lever should appear somewhere above the brake pedal.

Tuesday saw me at the QE hospital for the one year check up on my hip.

Everything was fine, there was no sign of excess bone growth . . . and they don't want to see me again for twelve months.


Wednesday and I get a letter from the D.W.P. saying they are no longer going to pay me any D.L.A.

As you can imagine, I have appealed against this decision.  For good measure the Job Centre also sent me a text message saying

"Remember your adviser appointment on 10/1/14 at West Bromwich"  This was the first I'd heard about this.

Seems I have an appointment at half past two this Friday.  Ah well.


Thursday and it's HAPPY HIP DAY - my hip's first birthday.


Friday was my "Work-focused interview" at the Job Centre.

"Give me my leg back as it was, and I'll be back at work tomorrow" 


Sunday and once again Andy M and myself head for the cafe . . .  this time it was open.

Liver & onions, with chips.    Excellent it was too.
