Carrot greens, finely minced with scissors, baked in a quiche, the strong flavor becomes an advantage.

I was always told it was poisonous. Or was that the green in potatoes?

The green in potatoes is *technically* poisonous, but you'd have to eat a *lot* (kilograms) of just green peels for it to hurt you, if I remember correctly.

The main hazard with carrot greens is vitamin A toxicity, otherwise, they're like a stronger form of parsley.

One can overdo it, but it takes some doing.

Mum's bathlift was installed last week so we had a comparatively-easy bath day on Fridaysmiley - magic and the bath tub now fills up with hot water with no kettle-boiling or jugs smiley - magic

One carer (my age, roughly) who turned up on Thursday seemed interested when I was talking about my having to update my h2g2 entry on King Richard III with the week's events. She asked me why he'd been buried under a car park in the first place. I thought she was joking. She wasn't. I explained that he died over 500 years ago, and there were no cars then so they didn't need car parks, he'd been buried in a church now long gone and a car park built on top. She said she felt a bit daft and told Mum I'd do well on The Chase because I'm so clever. Mum said "I know! That's what I keep telling everybody!" (smiley - laugh)

I have the use of a magic carpet for two weeks. smiley - magic

Ian's daughter has gone on holiday, Ian's paid the insurance and my brother's given me some petrol money. smiley - boing

We have a family wedding on Saturday, my sister's middle son. At a posh hotel in Immingham (I didn't know there was such a thingsmiley - silly)
Me having the use of a car will save the family mega ££ in taxis getting Mum to the venue and home, and me a lot less stress. I've also done her shopping which my brother hasn't had time for.

Great news, I know how much a vehicle means in difficult circumstances and taxis are so expensive.

Enjoy the break you deserve it.

Today it was worth its weight in gold. Mum's cough is giving cause for concern, so I rang the District Nurse, who rang the triage nurse at the smiley - doctor surgery, who rang me back and prescribed anti-biotics over the phone. If someone can come to collect it, it'll be ready by 3pm. I was able to go collect, get the meds, return to Mum and give her the first dose, and write it all up for the carers. Then I popped into Tesco on the way home for 2 jugs of milk and a big bag of cat litter which I normally can't carry home! Truly a magic carpet.
