Hi Everyone Well, the weather promises to be windy, rainy, sleety and possibly snowy. You can’t go out so you might as well stay in, turn on the gas fire, make a cup of tea, and read the November newsletter. You know it makes sense! Christmas Raffle We will be holding the Christmas Raffle at […]

October 2019

Hi Everyone It was in the papers this week that we’re in for a bad winter this year. I don’t know about a white Christmas but it’s going to be a cold one apparently so forewarned is forearmed, as they say. Be prepared and stay safe. Right, now, two things: 1 – Raffle Prizes We […]

September 2019

Hello All! As we slide gently into the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness I notice a distinct chilliness in the air. Summer’s lease hath all too short a date and temperatures shall soon be dropping. I don’t know about you but my old Osgood-Schlatter’s injury always starts to bother me around the end of […]

Welcome To The Video Edition!   Why the video edition? Well, because I have found a couple of YouTube videos which I think you might find interesting, and another one to make you smile. But more on that in a bit. It’s a bright, sunny Saturday afternoon as I type this. The sunlight bouncing off […]

April 2019

Hi there! The poet S. J. Goldner once wrote: I’d like to spend April, sitting on a hill, With a mushroom for a parasol and violets for a frill. Well, that’s Gabapentin for you. Nonetheless, April is with us, the year is getting better and, with a bit of luck, so are you. If you […]


Pulled in all directions?

For many, one of the worst symptoms of Fibromyalgia is ‘Brainfog’. An inability to think clearly which leaves us embarrassed, vulnerable and sometimes scared.
