Local girl did good, winning the golf, although I thought the caddy was supposed to carry the clubs, not the golfer.

Possibly try Spatone?  I think it's available on prescription if not you can buy it in boots. It's a liquid format that causes no stomach or digestives issues. Unfortunately the sachet of clear liquid does actually taste of iron so have some orange juice handy to wash it down with!

Our family arrive on Wednesday.  My husband is having a party on Saturday for his birthday.  Ive been trying to do things around the house, which is difficult, as I'm limited to what I can do.  My husband is doing most of it, which makes me feel guilty.  We'll be visiting Yorkshire while they're here. . My DIL was born in  Korea.  However, she was brought up in Vancouver.  my GD was born in Dubai, so, my son tries to show them various parts of the U.K while they're here.   Last year it was Scotland.

Unfortunately, both the ferrous iron meds for my anaemia  are playing havoc with my stomach.  I actually felt really  ill on ferrous sulphate, so, had to come off them.  I think I'll need to go to the surgery on Tuesday to see if there's anything else I can try.  Has anyone else tried these meds?  Did different iron meds suit you better than the ones mentioned? obviously, I want rid of the anaemia, but, I can't carry on with the iron meds I'm on now.  One good thing, due to the heat here, our family won't feel the cold, as they  usually do while in the UK   I hope everyone has a lovely bank holiday tomorrow. .  Sorry for my moan.

Just watching the European championships in Glasgow

The championships of what sport, Monic?

Sorry your poor dog is feeling literally 'under the weather', Fiz, it hits animals hard as well as us, it would seem.   Well done for having the freshen-up if it was such a great effort for you!  Hope you can build confidence in using the car more and more as time goes on  >x-fingers<

Haven't done anything out of the ordinary myself this weekend, just trying to stay as comfortable as I can in the heat ....  Oh wait, yesterday morning I sorted out my socks and pants drawer  >biggrin<  I couldn't believe the mountain of socks that accumulated on the floor!  Actually threw out some tired-looking pairs... You can see what an exciting life I lead  >lol<

Sounds absolutely delightful, OldTone - I am green with envy (but we don't appear to have a smiley for that!)  What I'd really like to do is have a swim in the sea - during this level of hot weather, the normally chilly waters of Britain do warm up enough to make it bearable and even desirable.  It's the thought of actually travelling to the coast that puts me off  >erm<

Fiz, your bedroom sounds like mine - and indeed sleep becomes a problem, especially if we have a muggy type of heat.  Roll on autumn, say I...

Sandbanks is a peninsular separating Poole Harbour from Poole Bay. There are seven miles of soft clean sand (Blue Flag for umpteen years) stretching to Bournemouth, Boscombe and beyond. The beach has a gentle slope so access is easy except its hard work walking across the dry sand. It is really soft. Bathing is safe with lifeguards as long one stays away from the tidal run near the entrance to the harbour.

There are a couple of car parks right next to the beach plus a half mile or more of metered street parking, so there is plenty of it. However at peak times it can still be difficult to find a space. On Thursday both car parks were full in the afternoon, but luckily I managed to find a street place just as someone pulled out.

One Friday we went down in the late afternoon as some people were starting to leave so found space in the main car park. Only 50yds from the beach.

Hello Kizzy Kazaer

We can stay + see the Maple leaf etc fall in their season plus we can make the most of our celebrity status to promote our inter-gration + harmony policy's they have tried to pass by laws to encourage people to contort to stereo moulds trying to hide our mis-shaped bodies like bodies missing one/two limbs, a twisted leg/arm a mother displaying a nipple pushed through a button hole trying to be descript while feeding baby as she sits on a park bench in the warmth of a summer sun.

I've actually managed to shower and wash my hair which has made me feel a little fresher. I'm not in a great place so have to bully myself into action and only occasionally manage it!

Tizzie was sick yesterday, quite possibly because of the heat. She's been downstairs lying on the lino rather than upstairs carpets for the last few days. Poor girl, I wouldn't want to be wearing a golden retriever coat right now.

Apart from wanting to blitz my upstairs and struggling to due to the heat I have no exciting plans at all this weekend. I've only used the car twice, I'm very nervous both of the car and of going out so I'm thinking it's for necessary trips only at the moment.

Feels hard going back to heatwaves after such sad news   :-(

I never thought I'd ever say this but the last 48 hours have been too hot for me. I've struggled to sleep. The coolest my bedroom gets is 25 at night and despite no covers at all and a bedside fan I've not been able to sleep. A few more days of this yet and I really want to blitz half my house, I could only manage a half hour yesterday. How do people manage to work in this?

I've heard sandbanks is lovely oldtone. Can you park close to the beach?
