Oh, very big and clever of them.
No Mr T, it's the people who bettered themselves to escape from Council estates who made Britain great :)

at least the council estates were there as a base from which to improve from.
You can check out any time you like but you can never leave!

But the people who live there now don't have the educational opportunities available to them as in the Grammar Schools of old, and there's no point in everybody taking a Hairdressing degree.

Little bits of progress in the returning sensation in my right hand fingers hitting little milestones - the latest of which is being able to hold a pick with a reasonably consistent grip through the duration of a song.  My thumb and forefinger's fingertips are still a bit numb, and the pick keeps slipping without adjusting for it, but for now I'll settle for that; a few weeks ago my right hand could barely turn a door key. :)

What have you done?

I suffered a "Transient Ischaemic Attack" - a kind of mini-stroke - on 6th December.  Temporarily lost the feeling on my right hand side (still manifest in my fingers), face drooped to one side, lost my power of speech for 12 hours ("expressive dysphasia" they call it)...and it wasn't even my round.  ;)

Have you, er, tried to, er, pleasure yourself with this hand?  All in the name of rehabilation of said arm, of course.   :)

Glad you're on the mend, chap.

Crikey.
My dad was on the verge of one but the doctor spotted the symptoms of it (something to do with his eye I think) and managed to manage him through it

Glad you are on the mend

Ah, that's what happened. Like everyone else, glad to hear you're on the mend Matt.

Thank you, one and all.  It'll be just few more weeks until the sensation is completely back in my right hand (yes, yes...) and I have an MRI scan imminent, which should be a formality, and that should complete the recovery. 

This is what moving house with a pregnant, diabetic partner does to folk...  ::)

Nah, it was the prospect of R50 in Belfast I think!  ;D
