Apologies for my absence but I've not been allowed to borrow my laptop back and had to throw a strop teen fashion to resolve the problem.
I'll do you packing for you, M..........eldy. I might deviate from the list a little though with a few spiders and bats up your nightie Sorry to hear the news on your friend Sue. Clearly out of the blue. I like Lady Sue's ethos of living life to the full. Something we should all live by~~~~~~~sue~~~~
Lol at leaving the GPO to the waister lounge Everyone should have a will. I had mine done during wills week and the lovely solicitor did it free and i have the fee directly to the local hospice.
((((sluggy and SM))) of bless. Not a situation that's good for anyone. it does seem odd that something as basic as continence wear should tale so firkin long to obtain. I hope your new place will have enough room for two puddy tats and waister visitors
Well runned MC. Hope your mojo returns soon.
DL, teens are barely understood creatures. Before you know it she'll be nice as pie - teens, they mess you up. Poor student OH its a tough life
Sue, I don't read that mag either. Do you have a link to it ?
Pippi, the wedding at the botanical gardens sounds fab but I thought you and Mr P were already married
When are the intrepid ironers off to wherever it is? How are them poor boys going to manage without their mummies.
I agree that the penalties for poor/dangerous driving are insulting. Sadly it there is little respect or value placed on cyclists lives - certainly if my experience cycling to work is anything to go by.
Westie - hello Loving the Camino reports
An ekiden - whoever asked. Long distance relay. Its japanese. named after the post stage coaches. It was fun and i managed to run reasonably well. Not much to report here. Busy week ahead. Amongst other things I am going on a bat walk on wednesday and they have bat detectors. hope M......eldy isn't in the vicinity or there could be false alarms And if I make it through to Friday its porn star martinis with the running girls and then bridget Jones baby
morning My apologies for my absence *;eaves note on the pitbull's desk*
You teachers who've had the summer off and are now tired will get no sympathy from me. If the holidays were shorter and perhaps more frequent it might be better all round as it would be easier to get back into the routine. Of course I do admire your commitment, dedication and patience during term time
(((sluggy and SM)))) bless. Very difficult to manage SM and the carers. I like the sound of Sue's suggestion - the food labelling - not the weevil thing. ((((BFF and mum)))
Podds, I thought of you when the school uniform thing hit the news. I sniggered to myself I love the idea of you being famous on FB as a pitbull one woman said she'd spent £200 on her two kids trainers... It says much about the parents. We have the same rules enforced for years at the minis failing school from a 'deprived' area. No major problem.
awww, congratulations on your wedding, pippi and on being a super prize winning photographer hope the achilles is on the mend
Go go go, MC. Enjoy the HM
Sue Florida is a fab place for family hols And loved the pics of the shiny new car
Go go go M....eldy. Dont fall in the canal
(((DL's back))) How is FC these days. Did OH go to the foam party?
Daffy, I too have many questions about your disappearing knickers and so many pictures of them 'being flung'
GO go go amandax
Usual stuff here with the odd curve ball thrown in. I always marvel at how people deliberately act in a way which they know is contrary to their legal responsibilities and bring situations entirely on themselves and then flap in the manner of a dying fish when it is brought to their attention and they are asked to correct the situation. Ma is ok. her bathroom is finished. Miniyums are behaving. No 1 is applying for jobs. I think it may be a lengthier process than I imagined. Ive been struggling with my running. Even easy stuff is hard. I am hoping its just the humid/warm weather otherwise a trip to the quacks is on the cards. Today I am running an ekiden. Teams of 5 run the marafun distance in a relay. Teams are put together by the organiser based on their times hopefully ensuring all teams are evenly matched. That means teams are cross club so I only met two of my team yesterday. They are all lovely and its v friendly so fun should be had by all
Very relieved it's not one of your chums, podds. As you say life is precious and unpredictable
Hope you're feeling better, MC
Well runned, Becks
Bird took me out for afternoon tea yesterday. When we arrived a noticed my run buddy and thought fancy seeing Laura. Then I spotted my other run buddies smiling away. How funny seeing them... it took a few seconds to realise they were waiting for me. I was lost for words. Balloons, pressies, Prosecco and lovely run buddies. I'm a ??ucky gal to have such lovely chums I have a Fox taken up residence along the side of my garage
Good morning Pippi, I love your description of Shetland & Orkney. I had no idea it had such history The pics are fab too. I love the peaky puffin
Good luck, Podds. Is it really the ironing this weekend? Those clever boys winning those rosettes. They are gawjuss. What a proud mummy you must be
((((MC and family))) difficult news for you all. I hope you can all enjoy life as it is without thinking too much about what may be ahead. Great that the kids were ll huggy after their GCSE results. Well done you.
*waves to Sue in Mickey Mouse land*
M...eldy, what a sweet ickle birdiepie
Sluggy, it sounds as though it may take a little time t settle SM's carers in. Happ birhday, sweetie pie Are you doing anything nice ?
How is Ned's running coming along, Mrs Farfar ?
Pippi, I did laugh at your friend who took her wellies and cossie etc for her surprise weekend and then went somewhere completely different
Thank you for my birthday wishes. As it was a big one bird spoilt me. We spent the weekend staying at West Usk lighthouse just outside Newport in welsh wales. Wind, rain, a Tardis, Dalek, hot tub and prosecco and eldeflower gin. Perfect
Thank you also for the views on further education. No 1 is looking at apprenticeships. He'd forgotten he had also applied to South Wales Uni who wrote offering him a place but I don' t think his heart was ever in it. He's a bit of a homebird. Not sure what's got into no 2 but this week he's mowed the lawn, painted in the house and washed the car - all without me asking
I dobelieve bird is treating me to afternoon tea tomorrow
