Looking at my freshly ironed curtains. Yes, i finally bothered to iron them after their washing from the other week. Well, they look marginally better now. Was it worth it? No. If i had the money and was frivolous enough would i buy a new pair? Probably, yes. Will i forget this experience and do the same thing this time next year? Yes, absolutely!

Just watched the big truck/arsehole neighbour struggle to maneuver out for the best part of 5mins - the sort where they attempt, get so far, realise it's undoable, then start from stratch. Spotted a new (fairly big) scuff mark on the trucks front left bumper, which could mean she's brushing up against the corner of our building. *Sighs*. She's got burn money to drive that thing about so i expect that scuff won't be there long.

Dying. I should’ve gone earlier. Can you guess what I’m doing? 3pts for the winning guess, some belly button fluff for the runner up.

I've just finished superglueing the sole back onto a shoe ready for holiday tomorrow. I had to come up with a makeshift clamp to hold it, which I'm rather proud of...



Worked well.

Feeling a bit annoyed and confused. I did an econsult about my hay fever and asked for Prednisolone/steroid, which i had once been prescribed a low dose of for many years. It works 100% of the time. I layed it on thick but not so much as to be obvious, hit on the key notes - enough to suggest that i'm having a hard time. Anyway, they've decided to go against that (because of side effects) and give me a higher dose of the medication that i'm already taking, despite me saying that it's ineffective and i'm taking twice the dosage ...!

Also, there was no instruction about where the prescription is to be picked up from... ? Do i go to the doctors or the pharmacy?

What do they prescribe these days? Last time I tried their nasty pills it was fexofenadine hydrochloride(telfast) didn't help me at all. Even on the highest dose they gave me.

^^ oh thats a pain . If you've taken the steroid before with no bad effects surely its simpler to just give you that!

Do you have a nominated pharmacy? they usually send prescriptions to that (well mine does).

If you have the NHS app (sometimes surgeries have there own mine also uses Airmid UK) you can sometimes see if there holding the prescription, with me if it says nothing usually the pharmacy has it, as I have one nominated.

^^ I'm on 120mg Fexofenadine at the moment and i can't tell any difference. I've upped the dosage to two pills a day and it's had no noticeable impact. The highest dose is 180mg, which they said can be taken three times a day, so that'll be twice as much again. Will it make a difference .. ? Doubtful.

^ I had no noticeable side effects from the steroid though i can appreciate that there can be unseen damage and also long-term damage from use. I don't take the prescribed dose anyway, i usually begin taking once a day and then miss every third day sort of thing, as suits.

Yeah, i have a nominated pharmacy but it's been quite a long time since i've done anything like this, i'm not sure what the deal is.

^ you can always ask in the pharmacy - the worst case scenerio is that they will look you up on the system and see / tell you that the surgery hasn't sent it I guess.

^^ Yeah, no loss really. The pharmacy is close to the doctors.

^ No. I almost bought that recently but got Vicks Sinex instead, which made no difference. I'll have a look in the pharmacy for it.

I use beconase for my sinuses. You have to make sure you use it properly e.g. not sniffing it up your nose because then you swallow it instead. You put it up your nose and point it horizontally towards your ear.

The excellent Dr Rajan has some hayfever tips:

Bit extreme but I've been testing out one of these on our house today to try and help with hayfever.

https://www.blauberg.co.uk/en/positi...fresher-50-piv

Bit like an extractor fan but it blows instead of sucks. Positive input ventilation designed to force filtered air onto your home pushing out all the nasty pollens.

Right now I'm enjoying the fresh filtered air as our house was getting revolting from not being able to open windows.

^^ I really thought you said Baconnaise....
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baconnaise
and for a second I was genuinely intrigued as to how that might work. Kind of a modern folk remedy?
