I then get an email on Thursday saying it'll be delivered between 11:01 and 12:01. I get an email Thursday night saying i the item was not suitable for delivery to the collection point and to click this link for delivery options. This is followed by an email saying its been delivered to the collection point, so I expect to go and get it on Saturday. Friday I get a "lonely parcel" email saying its still awaiting collection. I go to the collection point and they don't have it! So I click the delivery options link and have to reschedule it for delivery to the original address. Apparently it'll be there between 11:01 and 12:01 today. I'll not hold my breqath...

    I collected my parcel and opened it. Its not what I was expecting. Its a huge gaming PC case and motherboard from Chillblast, fractal Fusion R6 or summat. So i went back to the delivery point and they did indeed have my parcel. So at least I'm a gaming PC up on the deal!

    DPD is much better if you use their app. I dont usually hold with such things but its very handy. Partly because the driver will know you have the app so it limits the excuses they might try.

    To update this: a few days later the speed went up to 10mbps, there was a blip last week when it went to 20 for a few minutes, today it's sitting at a steady 24, which is about where it should be.

    So if you do go for BT Superfast broadband give it three weeks to sort itself out.

    Doctors - bastard teeth sucking doctors. When someone is a bit nervous and waiting for the answer to a question. Don't spend five minutes looking at xrays and basically sucking your teeth. The guy should have been a dodgy mechanic!! Oh, and the question I asked (can we scan to see if the ligaments are actually there) was dismissed out of hand as being 'the wrong question'. FFS

    No. Physio (maybe?? He's not sure!) and a different doctor to see. I've met some grumpy bastards, even some grumpy bastard doctors. But this one sucked his teeth for so long I thought he was about to tell me my arm was about to drop off!!!

    Trouble is, one like that needs to be told what a twat he is, behaving like that. And you don’t like to because you might need him or his mate tomorrow.

    HB, btw.

    Thank you


    And yes, he does. But he basically talked to my friend who came to translate and who knows and likes him. I'm as P'd off with my friend for not backing me up.

    I had two questions. 1 -Can I get a scan to see if the ligaments are in place and whole & 2 - will more physio help

    The Doctor dismissed me and then my friend did too.

    Soooo - I'm going to Monday's appointment on my own and will hope that the surgeon speaks English - and if not, knows how to use Google translate!! LOL

    He did speak English but preferred to talk French to my useless friend. But I'm hoping you are right and that the one in Grenoble will be a little more patient friendly!! LOL
