    Dear Diary

    "Where is this heading?" Obviously, that's up to U. Sorry!
  2. In general, nothing. However, this issue was much more important than a GE because it was not reversible in five years. We deserved to be better informed if we were to make the decision. The politicians abdicated their responsibility and left us to it. They were an absolute disgrace. And, yes, it has left me angry. We elect our representatives to make the tough decisions on our behalf, not to pass them back to us.
  3. I agree. It was too complicated, so people reverted to a simplistic version of yay/nay. In many cases, this was what Farage and his cronies appealed to.

    Our new position in the EU

    I saw it was the film 'Annie Hall' and watched a few seconds to confirm that. You are now going to tell me that 'Highway to Hell' is on the soundtrack. I watched the film decades ago and can't remember it, tbh. If so, sorry!

    I should have guessed you'd pick that one out. 😀

    A Brexit in which we stay in but our incompetent politians have no say in its running would get my vote. Where do I sign up?

    The game really did cheer me up👍 Hope your tinnitus clears up soon. It's a nasty problem to deal with but they've made huge progress recently with alleviating the syptoms.

    Health update.

    Okay. Got out yesterday. What a catalogue of disaster! Carol turned up and while she was there, the surgeon asked if I wanted to go home there and then. "Yes, please." Of course, "there and then" became "in two hours" due to paperwork. The light was going to fail soon and Carol cannot drive in the dark. Anyway, we made our way to the main door and Carol went to get the car because the wheelchair is not allowed outside the hospital and the car was parked in the car park across the road. Ten minutes later, she's back. She'd left hazard lights on and the battery was flat. So, with the help of a young man we got our insurer's roadside assistance out. One and a half hours later, we were ready to hit the road. Twenty minutes later, it was clear that Carol couldn't continue, so I moved into the driver's seat. It was uncomfortable, especially depressing the clutch. I was in agony at the end, but we made it home. Hopefully, England will now lift my spirits and make the pain go away. Happy watching, everybody.

    Much better today. I've had two goes with the zimmer frame and not much pain. The surgeon says I can go home on Saturday. Here's one for you all to think about. Carol's been ill and the nursing system here means that you rely on family members. With no Carol, step forward two women who were looking after their own family members. Helping me into and out of bed and emptying the urine bottle. The kindness of strangers, eh?

    Thanks to all who sent 'Good luck' messages. I'm back on the ward and have spent the last 3 hours sleeping. I get the occasional urge (don't we all?) to pee and puke. I've peed twice but not puked yet. Let you know how I feel tomorrow.

    Phone call at 9am this morning. "Hello, I am your surgeon. Can you come to the hospital today?" So, here I am. Pre-op checks done. They slice me open tomorrow and fit me with a new hip. I'd almost given up on this chap. He said he would phone me in September and it's now nearly November. Still, I wasn't going to say "No", was I? I don't think I'll be fit for the 2nd test on Sunday, but if WB wants me for the 3rd, we'll see.😀
