DL, I'm very glad you are now getting treatment for that chest infection. Try to take things easy too, yes?
MC, it sounds as if you are feeling a bit better but you are still going to get fatigued very quickly, so don't overdo things (tell 'em I said so!).
Well bimbled Meldy!
Podds, I'm so glad that Kenny has found a home, I really hope this is his 'forever home'. Poor new dog, he sounds in quite a state
Our weekend didn't go quite to plan but it was still nice to be away. TBH, the big thing for me was to feel completely 'off duty' for a couple of days. The play last night was exceptional (Peter Pan gone wrong), I'm not usually a fan of slapstick but I was obviously in the right ,mood for it as I laughed solidly for the 2 hours! We also went across the Thames on the cable-car today, which was enjoyable. I hate heights but can tolerate that kind of thing as long as it doesn't swing around much (it didn't).
(((MC))) you are clearly proper poorly I agree with my esteemed colleague The Podds - rest, fluids and paracetamol are the order of the day. I do agree that the 10m is not going to happen, even if you are feeling a bit better by then!
WTF is a 'crowd sword' and do I need one?
Thanks Melds, we did think about the cat-flap in the wall. However, as we have thought about it we have come up with another potential problem. I just think that this one is almost right but not quite for us.
We are off to London tomorrow for the weekend so I won't be around until Sunday evening. Our plans included to meet up with SB and visit the cat cafe. AS it transpires, SB is going to Krakow and we have had to cancel the cat cafe due to time constraints Never mind, there will be other weekends.
Hope you all have a weekend full of what you enjoy.
Thanks for your invaluable advice Peter. I will be sure to try and remember to leave the flipflops behind if I ever run in future!
(((MC))) sorry you are feeling so rough, I hope you are not ill over half term.
Podds, I hope your mouth isn't too sore. Enjoy the jelly.
I used to love baking (stopped because I can't afford to eat the results but can't do it now anyway) and also Bake Off. I hate sewing and, like Podds, am totally inept at it - but also love watching the Sewing Bee program. I enjoyed watching the pottery program with a similar format too.
Meldy, we are planning to stay in Poole but there are several areas we would be most happy with. The first flat we have viewed, this afternoon, was lovely but we are not sure we could find anywhere suitable for a cat-flap. The other 2 places we saw today were not for us - but there is plenty more out there!
SM was on reasonable form today - at least she was clean and dry throughout!
DL, sorry to hear that you are still unwell. Please promise to see the GP next week if you are still ailing! Sorry to hear that FC is having problems but it's great that she wants to stay with you when she has passed her 18th birthday. That is a real testament to the love and stability you have given her at such a difficult time.
Podds, glad that the appraisal went well. As you say, the future prospects for your pupil sound very poor. Such a shame.
MC, sorry that you are poorly too., I do hope you are able to get to the lecture tomorrow.
Our buyer has been round for another look today and sounds even more excited. He is full of plans for the house and garden -he's a quantity surveyor so has realistic ideas of what can be done and lots of useful contacts. I know some people get upset to hear buyers talking about the changes they will make but I think it is great that someone else will enjoy being here.
We have a few viewings booked over the next week, still waiting for Estate Agents to get back to us about others. I really believe that the right place is out there waiting
Woo hoo Daffy! How lovely to be headhunted, even if you don't want to move again just now
Spence, that's a great half PB, well done!
Oh DL What a pity you didn't wait a few days more, then you wouldn't have got in
Jenni, I'm very glad that you managed to getaway for a break. I can understand why you would want to keep that kind of trip for the warmer months!
I had an appointment with my neurosurgeon today. My device has been re-reprogrammed and surgeon says I should persevere as I could still get some benefit. As my op was in Feb and it hasn't helped at all so far, I'm far from convinced but am perfectly happy to give this a real try now that it is implanted.
The weather here has been very iffy - a bit of sunshine, a lot of rain. Still reasonably mild during the day but chilly mornings and evenings.
