Well I’m fine for one, I hope all our other members are well too.  I worked in ED as an ANP throughout the Pandemic and due to retire in October! August will be my last revalidation for sure.  I too must get back to photographing my badges only this time, like my last SoN addition, the Whittingham Hospital badge, I will now be using my iPhone rather than a camera.

Yes, and I speak for Pam too, we are very well and hoping to get back to our family in the UK at the end of June.

We had both Pfizer jabs - about four weeks ago now.

And, for Sue (!) we were at our Chania café three days back and hope to be back tomorrow....  Myke you are welcome to join. Sue will tell you how to get there.....

And what about the others???

hang on... you mean other people have seen the auction? Damn. There will be some interesting price reports later I expect. Interesting to see 680 or thereabouts up at one go (yes, I counted them...).

Still alive and moaning although a recent long overdue replacement to a hard drive means nothing works as it did before ,especially pictures.Still hunting for elusive badges and new to us items to add to the album pages.Got some of the auction lots on Friday but missed far more, which I thought went quite reasonably. Some interesting and new to me items including a nice Bristol Cossham Memorial Hospital for which I have the Matrons photo album from 1951-64. Slowly disposing of items but as they go out the front door more come in round the back!!
