    I didn't know that. [emoji2369]

    I don't understand why you have to wait?

    In other news, I secured a local garage for storage, a mere £8 a week so that's nice. I started to move some things into it, in order to tidy the house and get the second bedroom functional. I found that several items are water damaged and others have mould. The carpet is soaking wet. I suspected a leak from the radiator, but tests showed it was fine. After the rain this afternoon, I found the floor even further saturated. On investigation, watervus running off the garden, which stupidly slopes towards the house, pooling against the wall (because installing a drainage channel would have been too sensible) and then running in through a literal hole in the wall, about a centimetre wide, between two bricks. The mould explains why the wife's lungs and allergies have been worse since we moved here. Several boxes of her crafting supplies were ruined, along with soft furnishings and other furniture, most of which is brand new. I have little hope of getting the world's worst letting agents to cover the damage... Because it never rains but it pours....

    Legal advice has been sought, we're awaiting the Barrister's (yes, it turns out that the wife actually knows a Barrister, that's handy) opinion on the information she's requested. Apparently the actual technician who did the first scan has since retired and passed away, and the gynecologist has also retired... In a more general sense, I've never understood the resistance of doctors to carry out tests to prove themselves right when they're insisting on something that you (or someone else) is arguing against. Especially when the test is so cheap and routine. Just *do* it, even if you think it's going to be negative, because then you have that result to show the people involved. It's happened multiple times in my experience... I can't fathom why the doctor didn't look at the scan results after they'd been done. Apparently they weren't printed out, but would have been easy to access on the computer. I also don't understand why the technician didn't tell us the result there and then, from what I've gathered it's fairly standard to let people view their pregnancy scan in real time. At 16 weeks we'd have been able to see limbs and movement... So why weren't we shown it? It's just crazy...

    Okay.... So, some of you may know that the wife and I have had a series of miscarriages, the majority of which at around 8 weeks but the last one was more advanced.... Turns out it was a lot more advanced than we realised. The wife has been contacted by someone who is part of an investigation into a private gynecology group, to which we were referred at the time by the NHS. We didn't have to pay, apparently the NHS does this from time to time, don't ask me why. Anyway, I was under the impression that the miscarriage occured at about 11-12 weeks. However, this new information indicates that the private group had an ultrasound scan of the pregnancy, dated at approximately 16 weeks, and which was assessed as showing a healthy, well developed fetus with strong heartbeat and no signs of any deficiencies, deformaties or anything else wrong. We were not made aware of the scan results, for some reason. However, no one bothered to *look* at the scan, and the gynecologist had been insisting for weeks that the wife couldn't possibly be pregnant due to having the implant, and was being delusional and all sorts. She refused, point blank, to order the blood test which detects a pregnancy, and which costs the NHS about £3.50. She even wrote to our regular GP to tell her not to 'pander' to my wife's 'paranoia' by doing the test. A couple of weeks later, Wifey is in hospital for an unrelated scan and the ultrasound technicians get all funny, then a doctor comes in and asks if she 'knew she had been pregnant'... They had seen the miscarried pregnancy on the scan. We were led to believe that the miscarriage was earlier than it was and had been 'missed' by the body which is why the uterus had continued to expand. The new information received recently indicates that it was not the case, the fetus had only died a few days earlier due to blood clots in the placenta which cut off the blood supply. These blood clots could have been prevented from forming by a single subcutaneous injection of clexane every day. If the previous ultrasound had been checked, we would 1) have known about the healthy pregnancy and 2) been given aforementioned injections to prevent clotting. I had previously believed that the miscarriage was an unavoidable result of the wife's ill-health and the medications she was on at the time, and that even if we'd known about it that it would still have failed. However, I have now been told that the baby was fine and would have continued to be fine if someone had done a cheap and easy blood test and/or bothered to look at the results of a scan they'd ordered... Since that time, the wife's health has severely declined to to unrelated matters and it is infinitely unlikely for any future pregnancy to successfully be carried to term, and the attempt would likely kill her too. Our child - the last chance we had to have one - was healthy and developing normally and was murdered by the negligence and sheer incompetence of the so-called experts who were unwilling to carry out their basic job functions correctly. Not only that, but they convinced me that the pregnancy didn't exist and rather than fighting for her to be listened to I was trying to 'soothe' her insistence on being pregnant... He (the scan analysis is 90% sure it was a boy) would be seven now. The investigation has found at least fifty similar cases.... There are no words to describe the anger I feel.... I want those responsible for this outrage to be identified, and then I want their head(s) on a plate.

    Funny how they can seem to legally do it to the husband though... Or has TV lied to me? [emoji848]

    Sorry for that, mate. Maybe pack her *suitcase* for her and dump it outside, if that's the way it's got to be...?

    You're probably better off - I don't trust easing the restrictions this much this soon....

    This is why I don't agree with the post office offering all these other services. Yes, I know it's pretty much all that keeps them afloat, but A) they shouldn't be a for-profit business but a government-funded service and they get in the way of the primary reason that the place is there. At the very least, they should have a separate window for non-post related stuff.

    Got the keys to our new house last week, just before this lockdown thing got serious. This is not a good time to be trying to move...

    Well, I can't afford 300, but I was on the 200 package. Since the wife isn't well, we can't go out much. We watch a lot of shows on streaming, and often she'll be watching something while I'm on the xbox in the other room, so it can bottleneck on slower connections. It's more that it's not available if I do want it than whether I need it or not.

    Just occurred to me to check on the broadband situation at the new address. Virginmedia doesn't cover it, so can't get the fastest broadband available. Not sure what the best option will be, but no one else offers speeds over 70mbps whereas Virgin offer upto 300. Just another thing to be unhappy about with this move.

    They'll rip out the flooring even if it's new and/or in good condition. No one I've spoken to can actually justify the practice of not replacing it. The council/housing associations could buy flooring in bulk and are paying workers anyway, so it would be significantly cheaper for them to install it than individual tenants. You hit the nail on the head with the money situation, it's literally about them saving a few quid. Social housing tenants tend to be poorer people - not always, but often - and they're forced to pay to install flooring and redecorate a house which doesn't belong to them. Private rented properties have flooring and so on provided by the landlord, and are rented to more affluent people who could better afford to fit their own. It's madness. I'm more concerned about being forced to move to a tiny mid-terrace bungalow, 50m from the road, with no allocated parking. That's obviously the ideal set up for mobility-impaired disabled people and the elderly... [emoji848] At least it's not the one with ten steps leading up to it. What's the point in building a bungalow for people who struggle with stairs then putting a flight of *fruitcage* stairs outside the front door?!

    Got offered a property. It's a bungalow, which probably has a level-access shower room already installed. Doesn't have its own parking space, much less a driveway, which is a bit of an issue, but nothing we can do about it. Apparently the current resident has been there for a long time and isn't leaving until the 16th of Feb, after which they'll have to assess the property; refit the kitchen & bathroom, and ensure it's clean & safe. They'll not, however, redecorate or refit flooring because renting a house with no flooring makes *so* much sense... [emoji19]
