Difene is one of the best antiinflamatory pain relievers around. Comes in tablet, spray & gel forms. Only available on prescription. Can have very serious contraindicatons to those who have suffered, or suffer from asthma though. Consult your doctor.

No panic HM...just a touch of Old Age...hip playing me up...spent a restless night and wrote a post whilst feeling sorry for myself...and received lots of sympathy and good advice...nice bunch on here...nothing to worry about, there's plenty worse off than me...but thanks for asking all the same.

whiskey and green ginger wine

That was my old Dad's favourite tipple.  Every new year, without fail, he began Hogmanay with that.

I know many who swear by it.  I don't drink, but will occasionally have a green ginger wine - yum yum!

I've just remembered as well that my Dad's post office mates used to call him Whisky Mac because he drank that - our family name was MacLennan
