    Nose picking

    When hands go who picks my nose? It's hard enough getting other things done but bogies?. πŸ˜‰πŸ€—πŸ˜€πŸ˜xx

    My hands are going also but that’s one problem I hadn’t given any thought to!

        Well

        Hubs hands don't work. i hold a hanky up to his nose and he blows.
        if that doesn't work
        A damp Q tip up the nose (gently) as Thomas directs me where it is.

        not the most glamorous job

        If you have suction machine I have heard that allegedly you can use that.

        A bit like the suction used at the dentist.

          I suction my nose regularly but some stuff just won't budge! I can just imagine trying to explain this to a carer. πŸ˜‰πŸ˜πŸ€—πŸ˜xx

            Never having been a nose picker myself, honestly!, if I feel bunged up, I use a saline spray and a cotton bud or kitchen roll to extract said blockage - well, when I say "I" do it, I mean a carer does it, of course 😏

            A nebuliser can be good for loosening it up too. xx
