Hi, to be honest I don't like meat too. I can eat a well done stake from time to time. But since I know we should eat some meat I usually eat chicken or turkey.

Oh, I wish your mother in law a good health. I hope she is still healthy enough to have regular walks, because it is very important for elderly people's health.
Also Spending holidays with your relatives can help you to «switch», so you'll feel rested after holidays

Hi, just came back from my GP (I had a 9:30 appointment, they took my bloods last week) and yeah — turned out my iron is too low and he said he doesn't know how I am even walking around, I should be in a state of a permanent faint by all accounts  — it is not funny really, but yeah, I have to take the iron tablets — I hate them, they make me feel sick. Thing is — by «meat» here they mean — red meat — like beef, lamb or game (partridge, etc.) — not chicken or turkey. Another good thing is green leafy vegetables like spinach, broccoli, asparagus, etc. — they contain a lot of iron. And also one has to take iron tablets with a big doze of Vitamin C — cause otherwise they don't get absorbed by your body properly. I love fish — I am a pescatarian (this is someone who eats fish and seafood, but no chicken, turkey, beef, etc.), fish is very good for your joints as it contains Omega 3 oils, but it doesn't do anything for iron deficiency.

Thank you so much. Our relatives are actually helping us with the kids during the day, when we are at work — for example today Jo (my husband's cousin Josephine) took both hers and ours to the Chessington Adventure Park. The house is quiet now — I would love to go to sleep, but have to go back to work soon unfortunately.

Hi, she looks beautiful and the dog looks so cute in the dress. She deserves all the glory on the telly after winning the Championship, sports celebrities are much better role models for any society than the likes of stupid and gross Cardashians and Baby Rexas of this world.

Grin (25771),

I have been to hell and back over these last couple of days. Yesterday when I was at work I got a text from Jo saying that she took Daniel (my littlest) to A & E (Accident and Emergency) of our local hospital, cause he had a metal ring stuck in his chest. Basically, him and Luke (her son) were playing with old Christmas Crackers which they found in the basement room and when he pulled a Cracker, a metal ring somehow flew into his mouth, as he was laughing at the time. And he started choking, Luke slapped him on the back and the ring went down his throat instead of flying out. So it got stuck in his chest. They were giving him lots of fizzy drinks at the hospital hoping that it would go down. Straight after work I rushed to the hospital and stayed there with him overnight. Hardly got any sleep as every four hours the nurses woke us up and took his temperature and blood pressure and sent us for X rays to see if the ring moved down his stomach. It didn't move an inch overnight. So in the morning — they put him under general anaesthetic and did endoscopy (like — pulled it out with an instrument). The ring was huge — about the size of a 2 pence coin. We are home now and it is all fine, but God it was stressful.

This year is crazy. It started crazily — first changes at work, then Vicky started getting all these roles and competitions, then Jo's Dad died up North, now this. There is just no end to the continuous events — good and bad. Sometimes things are just ticking over in a stable and slow way, and other times — it is one thing happening after another. My husband told me "Darling, it is called life". And told me lots of stories from his childhood — like — once when he was Daniel's age he fell out of the back of his mother's car on the motorway, cause the back door wasn't locked, but the car behind stopped just in time, although there was a car tyre print on his forehead and his mother totally freaked out but he was OK.

Daniel was so funny at the hospital. He talks in a very smart manner, like he is a lot older than he is. At first — I didn't know what happened fully, and I said «Daniel, you are 8 years old, not a baby — how did you end up with a metal ring in your throat». And he said «Mom, are you hell bent on embarrassing me? First try and find out what happened and then talk». When the doctor was explaining to me what was going to happen and I tried to relate it to him in simpler terms, he said «Mom, I am not dumb, I heard everything. And don't start freaking out, the chance of anything bad happening to me with this operation are the same as winning the lottery (meaning no chance).» When he was a little baby, everyone in the family called him Stew from American Dad (Family Guy) cartoon , cause he has always been ultra smart. Like, he would sit in his pram and take a dummy out of his mouth and say something very clever about dinosaurs or planets or something and then put the dummy back in, he was like — two years old and the stuff he came up with was just amazing — kind of scientific facts, etc. Now they call him "a walking encyclopaedia" at school. But he is safe and asleep now and it is all over — thank God.

Well done steak here means it is well cooked (not in terms of delicious, but cooked in such a way, that there is no blood, etc.) I like mine medium, my husband likes his rare (with blood), most gourmet people prefer theirs rare. In France most people eat their steaks rare, even pregnant women, despite all the advice they issue against doing it during pregnancy (cause of the risk of toxoplasmosis), etc.

Well, it is rather fortunate that it was dealt with so quickly and with no consequences. Thank God. All is well that ends well, as they say. He is running around now like there is no tomorrow (it is a saying) — I mean — he is feeling very well and forgot all about it.

Well done steak can be very dry. But yeah, tastes differ. I like steak sometimes — especially 21 days matured Aberdeen Angus filet steak (this is probably the best meat available in the world). This country is famous for its steaks and steak houses. I like mine with mushroom and redwine sauce and a bit of French mustard. My husband cooks it very well. Some men here are what we call «steak Nazis» — they don't let women cook their steaks, as they think that women overcook them.

I don't know what to think. The Telegraph and Tory papers slag him off and support his extradition to the US and Labour are defending him and are against it. There were articles all over the Telegraph and even in the City AM (a non political business paper), that the Ecuadorian Embassy workers approached the Brit police themselves ages ago, as they couldn't cope with him anymore — he was very depressed, not washing, he stunk, and he started spreading his faeces all over the Embassy walls out of «dirty protests». They just couldn't cope with that, as he probably has gone a bit mad and needed some psychological assistance from a professional psychiatrist. He has been sitting in the Embassy, which is a size of a flat — in his room since 2012 — anyone would have gone mad. I shot a video of a protest outside the back of Ecuadorian Embassy before last Christmas on the way back from shopping at Harrods — you can see how small the Embassy is. I will see if I can find the video.
