    Thank you so much for all your good wishes to the Chairwoman, who was admitted last night. She was very touched by all the lovely comments left on Saturday’s thread. Shockingly, she has no internets, nor will she whilst she is in here - but she may in fact only be in for a couple of weeks so hopefully we will have her back very soon.

    I hope so, anyway. After years of begging me for biscuits, the dog now refuses to take them from me. Apparently I am not dipping them properly in the tea. I lack the Chairwoman’s biscuit technique.

    Anyway, let’s treat this as a big happy open thread. Bung all your non-political stuff in the comments below and I shall print them out and relay them to the Chairwoman. Hurrah!

      I knew that the Newton household would fall to pieces the day that Chairwoman left. The writing was on the wall. Dogs not getting their biscuits? This is the thin end of the wedge.

      i remember a “stint” in hospital, managed to get the nurses to go out and get pizza for me and the others bedrids…couldn’t stand the hospital food…also remember the nurses dancing round the ward at 1am…

      No intarnets. The poverty! Surely the NHS (?) should be getting WiFi happy by now. Something should be done.

      PS Good luck to Chairwoman.

      I missed the last thread like this.

      Good Luck Chairwoman - I shall pray everything works out for you.

      Ps: I can use that chair after you to cruise down the street kicking people in the knees. U bidding it out?

      Katy — please pass on my best wishes and love to your Mum. I think when she comes home she’ll have to go under the name of ‘Bionic Chairwoman’, so strong and fast she will be; as strong and fast as her character and wit!

      Have you taken in a laptop (better still a Wi-Fi enabled PDA) into hospital and scanned for local networks? I was in the Royal Free for an out-patient appointment 4 wks ago and clocked at least four networks, one of which was unsecure. It could be the same where your mum is. I’d be bloody suprised if it wasn’t. I can swear now and The Chairwoman won’t get me. Now I’m going to eat soap.

      Send my best wishes to Chairwoman, Katy. Hope the hospital food isn’t too bad :)

      What is the latest medical bulletin on your mother? Hope she is making good progress. Give her my best wishes.
