Vote for Euan's Guide and the #RedCordCard campaign

The sight of a red alarm cord is familiar to anyone who’s ever been in a disabled toilet. Probably also familiar is the infuriating sight of said cord tied up “out of the way”. The lack of understanding from people about the purpose of the cord is a constant nuisance to those who might actually need it dangling down to the…See More

For the husband who has problems lifting his legs into bed, I use a loose pair of leg warmers around my ankles which form a soft (not compressing) 'strap'.  Mine are made from silk so very light and comfortable.  I have tried leg lifters but my feet fall out.  For as long as your husband has strength in his arms I hope this will be an inexpensive solution for him.  Sent with love.

Hi Colin

Thanks for the welcome
You can see that I quickly set up my profile. I added logos for the products and wanted to add photos but the system would not allow me to add any more photos from my own files and would only allow photos from a URL. I presume there is a limit on file sizes for individual profile or can I add more photos.
