Pigeon Convocation

I wonder what they are up to...holding an anti Trump rally to which they had forgotten to bring their placards? Southern Rail picket line? Simulating Nottingham Forest's home attendance in 5 years time?

Today they wouldn't have been perched in their trees, there has been light, but stinging, rain all day today, which would have affected my Vitamin D levels even if I had been outside all day which I haven't.

We had a session with our work physio today who suggested we were all suffering from Vitamin D deficiency in that environment, many of us going days at a time without seeing any natural light with our shift patterns.

I thought as an outdoorsy type I might be alright, but alas this vitamin can't be stored over time, apparently.

The local Holland and Barrets might find us storming the aisles.

  1. At times like this when it's grey on grey for days and weeks my nearest and dearest simply pushes a spoon of vit d between my lips once a week. I'm like a baby. I just swallow whatever she gives me in the way of vitamins. This morning it was half a glass of vit. c. Then we went for a swim. I did my weekly 30 lengths then had a Chinese and a beer and went back to sleep.

  2. Ha, at my age I should probably be trying to do the same

  3. I sympathise with those on shifts. Now retired I try to get out and even if the weather means I just open the car window I do it. So far I have not had rickets.

  4. Yup, it's the latest craze/ focus, taking vit d supplements :o)

  5. Vitamin B used to be the big faddy one, which is toxic in overdose in some forms and can cause nerve damage.

  6. I walk everyday except when it is icy.
    The dog needs the exercise and so do I.
    I do not feel the same if I am indoors all day long.
    Vit D Hmmmm!! It is found in spreads now and cereals.

  7. Hospital prescribed Vit D for Col when he was in hospital for weeks and he's still on it now

  8. Funnily enough Si I was thinking of getting a D supplement when I next went near to the chemist. Shall definitely do so now.
