Neil from the NHS came to add some more telephone numbers to the Possam, speed it up and increase its volume. Maybe now I find it a less frustrating item of equipment.

20 October 2009 Not a very auspicious start to our journey when the limousine driver couldn’t find the house. However, having persuaded Emirates to pick us up at six o’clock rather than 7.15, in the event, this did not turn out to be a disaster. I cannot imagine how, or why Emirates would have suggested […]
