funny you should mention that, Ive just requested to be dropped from Tramadol, to Co-codamols. with the quantity of pills ive been getting from him, I should open up the wilts branch of Amsterdam!

Shame you get immune to the buzz after a few days.

hope your back feels better, is it a long term thing?

Reasons to be cheerful - got my track laid and painted - and it still works!

Also, found some old Fleischmann HO track in the cupboard which I sold on eBay and raised enough to buy a Farish 2-6-4T !

I had painted and ballasted a very small section of my layout for learning purposes but since then  I've been putting off track painting and ballasting for quite a few months now, I didn't want to put my rolling stock into their boxes. So after a mammoth session of track painting today all track painting is now done - Mug of tea in hand job done!

The rest of the ballasting will be a while yet, I've still to build platforms and lay some track side trunking, but it does mean that after a good cleaning with track rubber and a run around with my CMX Track Cleaner  tomorrow, I can get some of my stock out again for some train play time  ;D ;D

Been to the hospital today and seen my new surgeon. Has put in motion plan to remove remains of cancerous thyroid asap, and had my pre-op checks done today as well, so should all be sorted in four weeks.

Opened this thread to post that I had received my first pay from my new job and was looking forward to spending it on modelling goodies...

then I read Kipper's post.

Puts everything into perspective!

Kipper, hope all goes well. I'm thinking about you as no doubt are all the members of this Forum.

Best wishes
Eddie

Thanks to everyone for your thoughts. Been a year of operations and treatment but, hopefully, this op and another bout of treatment will sort it (for a few years at least).

Firstly, Kipper: well done for staying so positive!

Secondly, Asus EEPc for £50 today, so looks like I may have a layout that can be geared towards the layout, without dragging the full size one around.
Cheers
