Apropos the two spam posts up this morning I am moved to wonder what a Christian Kitchen might be. I understand a Jewish Kitchen, my grandmother kept one, but I've never heard of a Christian one :shock:

Maybe a combined kitchen-cum-chapel where you pray whilst you cook! Maybe I should nip over to Failsworth or Dukinfield and have a look :lol: .

Well, St Teresa did say God was to be found among the cooking pots...

Maybe something along the lines of Katherine Whithorn's acquaintance (Cooking in a Bedsitter - original edition) who said not to think of it as cooking in a bed-sit but sleeping in the kitchen?

And saying your prayers as you get into bed perhaps? Right next to the two-ring cooker :D

Hope this doesn't sound too weird, but I remember once many years ago, when I was mopping the kitchen floor whilst going through a particularly difficult time, a verse from a well-known Psalm came to my memory and it really helped.

Makes perfect and non-weird sense to me

A Christian Kitchen is probably a Clive Christian Kitchen.

Horrendously expensive, very beautiful, and looks too good to use.

The sort of kitchen that makes you order in all your food ready cooked, or you live on cereal, or cook on a gas ring in a back bedroom.

Conversation at the photo counter in the pharmacy:

Me - Oh hello, could I have some passport photos taken, please?

Man - Is it for yourself?


Do people often ask if they can have their passport photos taken for someone else :? ?

Which, let's face it, you can do without spending a ton of money! :lol:

A parent would take their child for photos, but since, I presume, you hadn't borrowed a small child for the trip, it does seem like a daft question!

Ooh, yes, those are gorgeous!

Maybe you can combine curating with antique theft?

I'm at the hospital waiting to see the consultant. Fingers crossed I will get some idea of exactly what is wrong with my shoulder and how it can be fixed

Yes, paws crossed for you, exile - shoulders can be so very painful. Let us know how you get on.

Slightly mixed results. The consultant is a very nice bloke but he isn't sure what the problem is (he thinks it might actually be my neck causing the issue). So he has referred me for a MRI which I should get in the next few weeks - which I suppose is the benefit of opting for NHS funded treatment in a private hospital.

Probably, yes. Hope they can sort out the cause and do something about it, anyway - necks seem to affect a surprising amount of movement. You might need to adjust your pillow arrangement, too - what suits best varies so much from person to person that only you can decide what feels comfortable.

I will pm you later today exile. If the truth be told the neck is at the root of many problems lower down and sadly this is too rarely recognised, even by those who should really know (with my Alexander Technique teacher hat on).

So well done that consultant....

I move my pillows around a lot as it is, normally they are in a kind of V shape arrangement. Might be worth having a play though, good idea.
