Hi Tez,

Isn't all of Scotland the wettest place, lol, it certainly seems like it at times.  I've dived the Clyde, some great diving there believe it or not and its not all shopping trolleys as you would imagine, lol.

I know what you mean, we've got some fantastic walks in the Borders and 4 dogs to walk but it can be hard sometimes getting out and about if the knees are playing up more than usual. 

Natalie.  ;D

I'm in the beautiful city of Vancouver, Canada. Moved here from the UK five years ago and have never regretted it for a second. :) I love Vancouver - it's amazing to be able to live in a big city and yet have the mountains, ocean and forest right there on our doorstep. Got my Canadian citizenship just over a year ago, so I'm definitely here for keeps. :)

Being stuck in bed post-accident and pre-op for a comminuted patella fracture, I have just spent hours reading this thread. Feel I must join in after all that!
I'm originally from Ireland, not far from Dublin, now living in Korea, not far from Seoul! Very interesting to read the intros of knee sufferers from such far flung places! A bizarre forum I never imagined existed, but so comforting at the moment and full of lovely supportive people.
