Foot operations are the Pitts ; so many other complications accrue because of them . Wishing you a swift recovery Sínead .

Thank you all so much. I never want to know what is being done to me 'cause I would run a mile. This time I have to have the foot elevated above the hip for 22 hours daily for the first 2 weeks. Thank God I don't have a house full of kids, how would you cope? As yet I don't know what the next step will be but I am learning how to use a knee scooter for use during my two hours of freedom.

I was going to say 'All strung out' and suggest it is put on the Church wall in town.... but I think 'All shook up' is probably more PC spinvv

I was thinking about it in a different kind of way . Broken cord as the beginning of life or broken cord as the end of life I.e miscarriage. I suppose everyone has a different take on it ....

Since I went to Strum's exhibition I have been following his college on F/B and they really are inspiring with the courses and the range of activities...all this in our own Boro.

I have attended some evening courses there. Always very good. The Senior College in Cumberland run a very good course on how to research your family.

The College is amazing Rocker. I was apprehensive at first but they end up like a family. Great teachers, a Councillor for anybody with mental health issues, or any issues, no bullying, no racism.
There was a 74 year old ex army officer who completed my course two years ago and he's now in IADT working on his degree. Never too old eh. Also I'd guess about 30% of all the students are Mature students, except me, I'm an immature mature student. :lol:

This took about 8 months on and off, some inconsistencies in it, but it's more about the amazing architecture of this block that always fascinated me. I must go to the town hall and check out its history now. Also I believe Altracel house next to it around the corner is one of only a few Art-Deco buildings on the southside? At a guess I'd say the block was built shortly after the Church?
