2017 Catch-up

It's been a while since I last wrote a blog on here, so its catch-up time.

Well after a great half a year with a great guy, going to festivals and enjoying each others company, things went down hill. We split up over something daft, and those of you that know me well, will know I am not that good when it comes to break-ups (friends or other) and tend to fall apart.

Well that's what happened, and for the last few months have been on antidepressants, which have been messing up my sleep pattern, and my get up and go most days has almost gone.

Health wise, apart from going down in to depression, I am now on an inhaler for my breathing (cold, hot and windy weather makes it really bad)

I am reliant on my car even more now for getting out, can't do buses or walk that far without getting out of breath. My housing support worker decided earlier in the year to put in an appeal for my PIP, which is coming up now later this week.

I recently had my medical for ESA, still waiting to hear about that/

I am trying to keep going with life, trying to find things to fill my days with. So far I am a member of the Rose Hill Quarry Community Park Group and also the Seaview Green Space, and also go for a cuppa and chat every Thursday in a local Bonymaen church.

Have made some really great new friends, but do want to thank the following for being supportive over the last few months - Juliet, Su, Janet, Gemma, Bill, Bradley and also Angela.

Me and Angela have been through a bad patch, she is a strong woman, and its great to be back in communication with her again.

#Brexit 2 month's away

#BREXIT isn’t far off, but Mrs. May’s plan crashed out during a vote in Parliament.
At the moment lots of companies are planning on moving from the UK, and those that are staying are planning on scaling back.
UK regions such as Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland would have been entitled to a 22 per cent raise in support from the EU under the budget plans for the 2021-2027 period, up from the €10.6 billion or £9.3 billion that the UK receives in the current 2014-2020 budget package, according to the report, by a network association of European regions.
This funding loss will be most keenly felt in two regions: Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, and West Wales and the Welsh Valleys. These are classed as ‘less developed regions’, and currently receive most of the UK’s regional funding.
The UK must not crash out with a #NoDealBrexit , it would be far better for one of these to happen: 1: #Remain 2: #ThePeoplesVote 3: stay in the #CustomsUnion 4: enter a #NorwegianStyleBrexit
If we crash out with

UK and the EU

So the people on the UK have had the vote, to 'remain' in or 'leave' the EU... the vote was a close one to leave, which has caused no end of problems.

The pound has lost value, companies have decided to ditch the UK and its workers and shift to other countries, Scotland want to go it alone and Northern Ireland wants to reunite with Eire and leave the UK.

David Cameron is to stand down (....no real loss there then!), Jeremy Corbyn won't stand down from Labour even though he cabinet is jumping ship.

One thing that Labour said during it's 'leave' campaign was that the NHS was to get an extra £350m a week... which they now say 'sorry this won't happen' a out and out lie from them then - which when people saw this made people vote

Plaid Cymru leader, Leanne Wood said in Cardiff earlier today 'We have to hold the leave campaigners to the vow they made during the EU campaign, including an extra £350m for the NHS every week.
We need to make sure the …

Car Battery Problem

Went out to start the car the other day and discovered the battery was flat. Had the break down out, the jump started  the car with no problem (so that ruled out the starter motor and solenoid). I put a multi meter on it and it was putting close to 14.7v in (so not alternator)

I sat with car running to put charge in the  battery. I disconnected the negative lead, checked what the battery was holding 12.85v. The breakdown person said to perform a parasitic draw test, so I did that and found no problem.
Was told to leave negative lead disconnected, the battery should hold its charge with that lead disconnected. Went out the following morning and it had lost charge again, it had dropped down to 12.08v. Just managed to start the car, went for a longish drive. I then disconnected the positive as well, just in case. This morning it was at 12.42v
Took the battery to Euro Car Parts for them to put it on a drop test. Had replacement battery.
This is a useful guide:
12.65V - 100% good 12.45V -…
