And we ostomates are certainly lucky to have our government stoma 'appliance' scheme.

I can't wait! I've been cooped up for far too long and need to stretch my (travelling) legs. The price of beer is a worrying factor, but I should have some money saved.

I'll hopefully be using some of the holiday to do a bit of travelling around the rest of Oz so I can see the sights too.

Good luck with your colonoscopy missy_moo!

Jam, I lived in the UK for 18 months and when I first got back to Oz I nearly cried at the price of beer! You'll have an awesome time though!
