  1. Where in the UK?

    Hi All I live in Northwich, Cheshire, about 20 miles from Manchester, Chester and Liverpool, so pretty central really for all the main north west cities. I go to the DSC at Withington, Manchester. I have been a RBK for 4 years in October, wow, time flies!! They are pretty helpful there, I am after a swim leg at the moment,, waiting to hear if I can have one. I really miss going into the sea when on holiday and we are going to the caribbean next April, I will be sick as a parrot if I can't go for at least a paddle, lol.
  2. The (new) alternative fairy tale

    Once upon a time in an old prosthetics memorial home for knackered arms and legs, I came across a leg that was so old and worn, but yet it wanted to be used by someone who wanted to dance the funky chicken dance at the grand ol' opery. An odd ambition, indeed! George the Elephant still yearned for the time before he lost his leg; he used to be able to jump and dance and run. He practiced walking over sleeping alligators and then he practiced jumping over sleeping tigers. One day a television camera crew were watching George practicing, and shot some film. He finally saw how his gait looked. He was once a prince, handsome, rich and powerful, till, one day, he left it all! He lost his peanut allergy, but missed his mom. He longed for her, crying "Mommy" at night. He needed to tell that he was gonna get a prosthetic leg — the one hopeful thing he did his exercises every day all day. Gosh, it's true what Batman and Robin said

  6. GHOP 7/I ~ Amazing film

    Breathtaking. What a fantastic planet we live on.
  7. Favorite Hobbies/Crafts

    I love making greetings cards, this started as a pastime whilst I was off work on long term sick, now I sell them to work colleagues, time to start on Christmas cards soon, I also love playing World of Warcraft on my laptop. My sons introduced me to online gaming and now I'm addicted. Anyone else a member of WOW? :P
  8. How soon can / did you go back to work?

    Hi, I was off work for 18 months altogether but went back to work 10 weeks after I got my limb. I work in admin so spend 50% of the time sitting down. I think everyone is an individual, so recovery is different for us all. Its the best thing to go back though, keeps you sane!! - I think
  9. What you look like?

    Hi, this is a picture of me and my youngest son Andy.
  10. hi all

    Well done Ali, that is some achievement, I found it difficult climbing four flights of stairs to my sons apartment in Switzerland a couple of weeks ago, mind you, you have got a few decades on me, lol.
  14. Hello again!

    Hi Everyone, Thought I'd pop in to say hello, I see there are still a few old friends still logging on and a lot of new ones too. Thanks to Marcia who sent birthday wishes today and for getting me to say hello. I hope you are all doing well and still giving out plenty of good advice. I will definitely be calling in from time to time and feel very guilty about ignoring you all for so long. Pam
  15. Muz, I'll show you mine if you show me yours :P
