I recently heard a sweet elderly lady saying a prayer:-

 

“Dear Lord, the past couple of years have been very tough for me.

 

You have taken — my favourite actor— James Garner,

 

my favourite actress —Lauren Bacall,

 

my favourite comedian — Robin Williams,

 

my favourite singer—Joe Cocker, and finally,

 

my favourite author, Tom Clancy.

 

 

 

 

I just wanted you to know, Lord, that my favourite Politicians are;

 

Tony Blair, Jeremy Corbyn and that stupid bitch from Scotland.

 

 

Amen.”

Whilst bored I was surfing the net for information on bailiffs, all was going well till I watched this video. They say that the young people of today don't care about society... Until this >> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hKejPcknbko

Getting a call off of a disabled neighbour very late last night stating she was cold, then asking if I had a spare quilt for her to keep warm! Of course I have a spare shall I bring it down to you now? No was the reply! Why I asked? (I live 50m) from her. Its too cold she says. by this time I text her again an said its me knocking at your door with my spare quilt to keep you warm.

 

 

I look at her all shivering no heat on and things like that. I had even made her a flask of tea to last her the night, I then tucked her in patted her head and said goodnight sweet dreams. As I left I heard her say thank you Mike you're the best...

 

 

I have just got back from hers with my laptop and have applied for the grant from the winter warm payments that she did not know about. Her carers turned up and asked me for the links for the others they visit, duly given!

 

 

Suffice to say I popped out this morning to buy her a lovely bunch of flowers just to show she is not alone and others care about her....

Well done MM. My heating is paid with my rent - about £3.00 a week, which is really good. The building I live in is lovely and warm and a lot of the time I don't need the heating - I did yesterday though.

 

Good neighbours are hard to come by these days so keep an eye on your friend.

I have hardly had the heating on this year because not sure how expensive the new price plan is. Although over £100 in credit.. Again!! Time for a refund in about 4 months so I can buy myself a treat... :)

Showed a friend the ESA form you need to fill in. We've been texting each other fake intrusive questions regarding lifestyle and daily habits for a couple of hours....example question is "How many slices of toast do you have for breakfast and how much butter do you spread on it?" Answer "I have two slices and I use sunflower spread as the flower on the packet makes me happy!"

Went on u-switch and saved my friend who lives downstairs £20 a month on her electric bill. She was paying EDF £40 a month for a one bed flat (our heating is included in our rent so she had no heating) and is well happy. EDF wanted to put her bill up to £50 a month to cover 'winter heating'.

Not being in contact with your daughter for 15 years and then finding all of the texts you sent to her when we first met up 6 years ago. (found an old HD) with all of my docx backed up on. I used to save them to a word document for reading years later. Its now years later and I had wet eyes, beaming smile, and all gooey lol,, OMG it was lovely reading them again, nice thing the daughter doesn't know I have them...

How one person's random act of kindness can have such a major impact on others. Wonderful story.

How quick my (non-urgent) referral to a hearing therapist was. Saw ENT Tuesday and just received a phone call. Bit surprised they work on a Saturday! Only a 5 week wait. Was told by a different department it's anything up to 18 weeks for non-emergency stuff.

I always get it logged that I am available for a cancellation, I have had phone calls asking 'can you come in this afternoon', naturally that's a yes.

OH always ticks that box as well. It makes a lot of difference to obtaining treatment swiftly.
