  1. Thank you. I will be selling some more watches, but if anyone would like to donate, my paypal account is bobpedder yahoo.co.uk replace the space with @
  2. That is very kind of you. Thank you. That takes the total to over £300. I will email you. I'm gobsmacked by the generosity shown on this wonderful forum. Thank you all.
  3. Go on - you know it's the right thing to do.
  4. But not as overpriced as vacuum cleaners.
  5. Some good ideas there, many thanks for those and the kind words.
  6. I'm in this situation as you know Roger, and I still don't know what to do with my watches. Do I let my kids have one each? But then the watches are all not of an equal value and that doesn't seem fair. Do I sell them on here and give the money to McMillan nurses and Keech hospice? But then there is not much else for the kids to have to remember me by. I don't know what to do and it's the last thing I need to sort out as I've organised everything else in preparation for my departure. I really would like some ideas / advice from members on this.
  7. I hate to say it but I'm losing interest in watches. I suppose it's because I don't see the point of buying any more watches (or anything not ephemeral) because of my illness and long term prospects. It's ironic really because I have more disposable income than ever right now!
  8. Pub lunches. I spend more on them than anything else at the moment. Usually after a nice walk. Had one yesterday and will have another one tomorrow.
  9. Just a day visitor Roger, for support and alternative therapies.I go on Fridays each week. All is good at the moment, thanks.
  10. I put my Tissot on today to show a fellow watch enthusiast at the hospice, only to discover the battery was dead, even though the crown was pulled out to stop the movement. I will have a go at changing it myself tomorrow, but sods law says I won't have the correct battery in my stash.
  11. Lance corporal Harry Pedder. Died of wounds in France 29th April 1918 aged 21. Battle of Lys
  12. UPS: A good week for me as I completed my first walk with the footpath society (5 miles) since my operation. I also spent a lot of time outdoors this week butterfly spotting and counting. No downs, luckily
  13. A fairly quiet week, but UP: Got a letter from one of my pension providers that says that owing to a mistake they have been underpaying me for the three years I have been retired! I will get an increase of over half as much again from now on, and my next monthly payment will have three years backpayment in it. UP: I'm selling stuff I no longer need on ebay, and have raised nearly £250 for Macmillan nurses. DOWN: Nothing I can think of.
  14. This is the oddest one I have - thanks to Roy for giving it to me.
