  1. Any suggestions for a good volunteer position? We don't have family in Sheffield, and I would enjoy the chance to get to spend time with some older people in the area. Perhaps there are charities you know of who befriend older people, either for chats or maybe to help around the house. Or in group settings. Or maybe if not exactly this, you will think of something similar. I'm looking for a volunteer position with a charity, not just informally with someone in the neighbourhood. I'm more comfortable knowing that there are safeguards in place. One challenge is that I am still working full-time, and sometimes have to travel at short notice for work, so it would have to allow me to volunteer in the evenings, with a bit of flexibility for the schedule. Ideally, I'd like to find something that I could continue doing (and maybe even expand my participation in) once I retire in a few years.
  2. Any suggestion for best driving route for early morning from Sheffield to Manchester airport (around 530am), given the road closures?
  3. Pattricia, great topic! Would love to hear why those lessons would have been important to you, if you don't mind sharing some stories. For me, it's "Be as kind to yourself as you are to others." By trying to ignore my own needs, I had a very bad time around 20 years old, and had to drop out of my first uni. It's like the old saying: "If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I?" And then the question is ... would I have listened!
  4. Waj, sorry of the news of your bereavement. Best of luck with the Open U thing. Sounds exciting!
  5. If you believe answers.com, this is called Clavicaphobia.
  6. Steve Mitchell was good when we needed an independent advisor. I only have his mobile and personal email and don't want to put it up on a public forum, but I can send you a message with the details.
  7. Thanks, istapp. We were thinking the same way when the issue first came up. We have a portable one (weighs as much as a Ford Escort :-). which works pretty well, but as you suggest it's noisy and takes up a lot of space, wanted to get a quote on a fully installed one, which might be able to serve a couple of rooms.
  8. No worries, I wasn't clear. Thanks anyway.
  9. Rudds1 - Does PJT car care do home air con, or only cars?
  10. Lol - I know, I know. A bit embarrassing. But there's a health issue involved.
  11. Anyone used a good air con company based in Sheffield (or nearby)? We could use recommendations.
  12. There are two across from each other in Nether Edge near the junction of Abbeydale Road and Sheldon Road, by the old cinema. As you go into town, the one on the left side of the road (Greek Village) is a more casual diner, but the food is still excellent, and it's very family friendly. A lot of workmen with what sound like Greek accents hang out for long meals, or to drink coffee. The one on the right (Meraki) has more of a restaurant atmosphere. It's tiny but welcoming and the food is also excellent. Just changed management, but we went after the change and it still seems very nice.
  13. There's an app that will put together workout routines for you. It has a free trial, but then there's a fee. https://aaptiv.com/ I've not used it, and have no idea how the costs are, but if you can't find anything else, it might be worth experimenting with the free trial. If you decide you want to sign up for the paid service, you can use a codeword from Dan Savage's podcast when you sign up: SAVAGE FYI, the podcast is a great listen, but it is a relationship advice program that veers toward the racy and unconventional. Shouldn't matter for the discount code though. P.S. Good luck with the fitness regime. Getting started is the hardest part. Let us know how it goes, a lot of us could use the inspiration.
  14. Does anyone know of a dentist in or near Sheffield that uses intraoral scanners? I need a crown, and find the goop they use to make impressions a bit difficult. Would like to find someone who could do the intraoral scanners instead.
