The elements are against you Chuggs!

Today I are mostly being bonfire man. I've pollarded 14 willows and savaged a native hedge.

My kindle fire is arriving today that'll keep me quiet for a bit.

I don't think i'll have time for a road ride today so I guess it'll be the turbo.

Today I am mostly doing presentations and eating free lunches and swishing my newly dyed hair and wearing my new lipstick

Oh, and feeling like a 12 year old having just got a date for my grade 8 flute exam...

Looking good Daffs - see you didn't go for the same hair colour as Snaily though 

So when do we need the vibe machine for you? I never got past grade 5 so I am in awe of grade 8!!

Podds, I love the sound of Sharkey, what a thespian! (And don't we all know that male thing of bravely-suppressed whimpering that goes on until all sympathy has been extracted, at which point he manfully straightens up and with a gallant smile resumes marching, though with a visible limp? 

Oh - you have it down perfectly chuggs - that's exactly how it played out.....

I went for a rather more sedate 'berry red' colour

Exam is 13th March - at 15.44 precisely I too am in awe of grade 8 (I did 7 at school but that was 15 years ago and 8 feels like an awfully big step!) - need to take the next five weeks off work to learn my scales...

07/02/2013 at 15:29

Another sprog here would be a miracle

Berry red  I'm sure it looks grand.

Mine is light brown ( with silver lowlights)

I've never taken a music exam, good luck Daffs, grade 8 sounds awfully serious.

A quick cup of rooibosch then its turbo time

I misread Noggs pollarding as bollarding and now have a mental image of lots of willows surrounded by traffic cones :0)

I am definitely on the mend :0) Nipped to the health shop and now have Magnesium tablets and probiotics to help with digestion and MSM tablets which are supposed to help with healing :0)

On the downside I've got used to my new glasses and happened to glance down at the scales when Mr Tubs was checking my weight. I've lost another pound but am the weight of a small pachyderm :0( 2 stone 3 lbs to shift to get my BMI down and break the 12 stone barrier. Unless I balance on one leg whilst leaning on the wall in which case I weigh less than a Hobbit :0)

and this is me, posting on my new tablet,  it seems very wizzy and I,'ve only just fired it up.

07/02/2013 at 16:08

Get you flash Noggs!

Aww tubs - if you WAIS it will come down and TBH you want a very gradual reduction as otherwise you won't stick to it and that's when the weight piles on again.....

When Guttie used to go for his annual check he'd always keep a paw on the floor - I swear he knew he was going to get grief for his weight

Funny day - one little boy went home early to see his new baby.

I said "I didn't know your mum had had the baby"

"Yes," he said, "it's a little boy called Judge Dread!"

This is wishful thinking.

It's actually a little girl with a pretty girly name!

07/02/2013 at 18:56

lol Pippi !! 

Well done Tubbs, slowly, slowly does it......well that's what I'm telling myself!

eek Daffs, that's sound well scary!!

Proud mom alert!

I've been to daught's parents eve, several of the teachers nearly moved me to tears with their comments...and this isn't about being academic or not (she's a set 2 plodder not a set 1 A*) but their comments about her.  Her work ethic, her personality, her kindness, her say I'm proud is an understatement. I always wondered what would happen if I didn't like my children, you love them whatever, but what if you didn't like the person they were growing into!?  Thankfully I have no worries about that

Stoooopid RW won't let me post normally as the pesky Nike Ad is over the page (see website bugs)
I am here, I am alive
07/02/2013 at 19:46


Yes, I wondered why the ad had taken over the page!

Ooooh, get you Noggy, posting on your new gadget .

Love the hair Daffy and the lippy looks very glam.

Tubs, it is good that the 'cure' for your problem is also helping with weight loss. I really envy your walks up the glen,they sound idyllic.

Awwww Spence, how lovely that the teachers speak so highly of your daughter, no wonder you are proud. SB went through a rather horrible stage and I wondered what on earth we had done wrong - he is now a lovely young man, it just needed a bit of patience.

Take care of those fingers Snaily, hands can easily get infected.

Glad to hear that C1 is doing well, lets hope that the scope shows nothing untoward.

DL, I remember your Civil ceremony and can understand why you don't feel the need for another shindig. It would have been a great excuse for a party though! My next big birthday is in 5 years but I am not really a party person I'm afraid.

Cheesy, I don't tink I willjoin ou fo the SDW50 unless that is 50 metres! Thanks all the same.

I have just read a book called 'Cleo' about a little black cat (who lived to the ripe age of 24!). I cried myself into a migraine and had to cancel my Thursday man at zero notice. I'm feeling a bit more human now but cried off Eaters' Club to be on the safe side.


WAIST well xxx

oooo get nogs with his new tablet and his highlights!

Oh well done girl Spence. you right to be proud.

Tesco calling

07/02/2013 at 22:27

Awwww, Sluggie, that's the sort of book that one never knows whether to read or not.....sounds like you enjoyed it, though, really! 

Nice tablet, Nogs ) Now go back on the pooter and see if you belch when you next get in here. (And if you don't, then why do I????)

Daffs, you look bee-yew-tee-ful! And grade 8 is really really good---getting close to professional level, isn't it??

Glad to know you're here and alive, Your Meldiness  Wouldn't be the same in here with  you, that's for sure!

Oh Spence, you should be VERY proud! That's the nicest thing a parent could ever hear----and, incidentally, also the best recommendation for Miss Spence's success as time goes on! xxx

Gosh, Pippi, I hope her big brother's nickname for her doesn't stick! 

Tubs, brilliant that you're continuing to feel better. And does it mean that the new specs are also settling down? Re weight loss, Podds said it all (although I'm the first to admit that the foot-on-the-floor method has a lot to be said for it!) 

In the end I did manage to slip out for just a couple of miles in between the downpours. First took Rossie, but she really doesn't like going far from home in this weather, so I took her back and then carried on alone. She's getting to be an old lady now, too, and I don't want to push her at all.
