  • Oh poor you! Portugal sounds like a pretty good place to recover! Enjoy!

  • Do take care & have a lovely stay in Portugal. Eyes down for obstacles!

  • Have a good time in Portugal did your holiday insurance go up with having PMR?

  • No it stayed the same we have it as a add on to bank account and when we called them thy just noted it and sent me written confirmation to carry with me

  • Better take a bit more gin with it next time!!! And all's well that ends well - have fun in Portugal. Just not TOO much fun - you don't want matching bruises on the other side ;-)

  • Hope you recover quickly Olive. My most embarrassing fall was on the travelator at our local Tesco. Turned round to hear what OH was saying and caught my foot on the ledge at the bottom. Travelator still moving, and nothing for me to grab hold of to pull myself up. A kind lady older than me helped me as OH was behind me and further up the travelator. I always come down behind him now....lol
