Geoffs home now, but what about the budget?
Worse than the Thatcher days.
God help us.

I wonder if any of you could help me with a query about a £2.00 coin.
I have a friend,martin, that comes into asda, and he showed me this £2.oo coin he was given in his change in another shop.
The coin had a dove on it and there was no writing on the front of the coin, turning it over there was the queens head so we took it it was legal tender.
However, around the coin there were these words:
Peace and harmony.
The date on it was 1959.
Neither of us could think of anything that those words could relate too.
but it did look as if it was made for something special.
For instance the war had been over some years before so it could not have meant that.

Do any of you know what it could have been made for?

Geoff has had his operation and hes doing fine. He's in a little pain as can be expected but he is quite comfortable now.
Geoff was first on the list for tuesday and he went down to the theatre at 8.30 a.m. and he was back in the ward by 11.a.m.
I saw him yesterday afternoon and he was wide awake and talking.
The nurses are great, making sure he was comfortable and they gave him some pain killers, and we found out that they gave him some morphine while they were doing the op. Apparently this is a normal thing now. They always do this.
Geoff will be seeing the physio today and will be getting out of bed to do the excersies.
It's so quick, isn't it?

Anyway, what a relief thats all over, although theres a lot of hard work to do now, he has to learn how to walk again!

Will let you know how it goes.
Will try to start blogging again now, I hope!

Geoffs birthday tomorrow, he will be 75, and he's having a lovely present, one he's waited for for ages,
A new knee!!!!!!!!!!
The hospital appointment came through 2 weeks ago and we laughed when we realised what day it was.......... his birthday.
I can rest for a few days.
