well all is settling down here ~my father is well on the mend now, should be up and running (well not quite) for our holiday, DH paul paid for me to go private and have my scans done instead of waiting over 4 weeks for the NHS~waiting to hear from my doctor ~ all seems well (fingers crossed) ~as for paul well the case bought against him by another work colleague is still being investigated (i cannot talk about it at the moment) ~so again fingers crossed, hope the company see paul is innocent.
