Yes, it does make you think. Back at the end of April, I was very ill with what was originally diagnosed as gout (we all had a little laugh here!) However, it wasn't and the delay caused the condition to reach life threatning stage.
Am pleased to report that I am on the mend now, back walking my dog's, and trying to weed the garden (keeps on raining!)
I too am fortunate to live in a nice home, next to the River Taff outside Cardiff. Many people should indeed spare a thought for those less fortunate than themselves.
