Re: Newbie

Welcome to the forum! Can I advise, don't go too heavy on the gadgets at first - you'd be amazed at the amount of duplication there can be. But its great that you're taking action, and this site can be so inspirational :)

Re: newbie from S.Wales

Welcome to the forum, Dave. Six months already is a tremendous start! Good for you. Food, water and fuel is brilliant - how about first aid and otc medications?

Sending Jan love, light, & strength. Positive vibes!
Jansman, sending you all this, you and your wife both. I hope everything goes really smoothly. And sleeping in her own bed because reconstruction is now a day op :shock: might well mean that she feels a lot more relaxed and able to sleep.
