I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

Hope that helped Solb
Well done for reaching calories @+1

Are you awake yet bear?

'lo peeps I'm up!


Wasn't that hard, but then I had to ring to book a doc's appointment to renew my sickness certificate.  I can do it when I have something to do it for!

Where's SOLB this morning anyway


*jumps up and down on SOLB's bed*

Bear, she usually responds to a mug of tea.
Well done for ggetting up. Moo is also off to the drs today. Mr by eck is working from home because the trains aren't working. How much stress can a girl take

*wafts mug of tea in SOLB's direction*


Sounds like a busy day for you by 'eck

Soz I went quiet last night - crashed and burned with a mahoosive headache.

Well done on the feedback, By Eck and good luck with the next lot of homework!
Glad you were able to phone the docs, Bear - it can't have been fun. But on the other hand the day gets better from here

Is there anything else you can do with music other than guitar, Bear? It was my hand surgery that halted my career as a flautist (not that I would ever have made it!) and my BA still needed me to do a recital to pass the first year of the course, so I had to sing instead. I would never have known that I could learn to sing had that not happened (and then I would never have met the ex, so double edged sword and all that  )

* whispers - I used to play the piano to grade 8+ standard*

Frodo, if you hadn't met your ex and had things go wrong you wouldn't know how wonderful Mr Frodo is

Oooo tea

Well done bear, step one done!

I played flute too (grade 8 but no +!) I had more passion than technical skill, haven't played for over 10 years though. Quite a musical bunch really, I know Sossidge has a musical background and still plays and sings.

Frodo must have been really astounding to suddenly realise you could sing. I can't sing to save my life. My singing is so awful I have to have the car stereo loud enough so that I can't hear my own voice otherwise I'll put myself off with my wailing! 

I had cereal for breakfast without too much angst so I'm hoping that means the food wobble is getting better.

(I don't get notifications for our thread anymore so I don't always know when you guys are around )

Back from the doc's - that went okay I guess although he did think it a bit funny that I didn't want it any longer than I'm employed by work, but I want to go and teach anatomy and stuff so don't want to be signed off for months on end.


Also nearly spent £20 I didn't need to - I want to use my speakers with my laptop as it's my main pooter now but couldn't find the bit where they plug in so I tried to buy some USB speakers.  Fortunately the guy in the shop talked me out of it and said the laptop must have a speaker socket and sure enough I've found it now

Well done on the cereal SOLB

I wonder if I could play flute, it's not too loud which is good as I live in a flat.  I like the flute sound. The main thing I can't do with my left wrist is do the sort of move you make when you hold it out to take change - it's always tilted a bit towards the middle.  It's just occurred to me I could learn to play left handed, although going back to scratch again would be blooming hard work!


Must post off my sickness certificate

Moo has an ear infection in his hearing ear. 2nd one in 3 weeks
22/11/2012 at 11:23

Oh heck poor Moo, ear infections are horrible

22/11/2012 at 11:26
Poor Moo (and poor you)

Bear, I have a spare flute (tis a v.basic student model, and not in the best condition - it used to belong to one of my pupils) but I'd be more than happy to loan it out to you for as long as you want
22/11/2012 at 11:35
Poor little sweetheart.
The glitter pictures are here!! I LOVE THEM. I'm off into town to buy some more fridge magnets so they can stay up, thank you so much for sending them I grinned.lots!
I'm waiting for the washing machine people to come, mine is broken but I am hoping it can be repaired. My poor sofa is on it's last legs too (well actually it's on three legs and a large book) I've been keeping an eye on fleabay but I haven't seen anything cheap and near enough that is not too nasty looking
22/11/2012 at 11:36

ooh thanks Frodo, that sounds great

22/11/2012 at 12:03
So glad the pictures arrived. Did the little surprise arrive too?
Moo was very happy at the drs. He saw the practice nurse and they know each other rather well.
Bear, what is your plan for today?
I plan on surviving. Antibiotics can make moo a little loopy
22/11/2012 at 12:35

It did, it'd tried to make it's way out of the envelope, suspect that's what took it so long. Doubt it'll be too hard to make up kcals today  

SOLBsis is coming over to study. I need to get on with loads of stuff but I feel so exhausted I've achieved next to nothing. Haven't even tidied up today and it's already 12.30. 

22/11/2012 at 12:37
so glad Solbsis has somewhere peaceful to st
22/11/2012 at 12:49

What is SOLBsis studying for SOLB?


Hmmmm - plan? I seem to have made more of a mess fishing out my old computer speakers so I need to clear that up first.  Next step I think is to take rubbish out to the bin.  If I can cross three things off my list every day then that's good going.

Bear, are you coming to the Mundane Christmas lunch? I could bring the flute with me...
