Sorry that you won't be able to join the WAISTerfest Westie, we will just have to do another when you and I can join in
That is a quick turnover Meldy, glad you found time for lasagna in the interim.
We have certainly decided (reluctantly in my case) to stay in this house for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, if we sell this we could only afford a retirement properly - and they come with rather high monthly 'management fees'. So we will stay here until something changes. So a downstairs loo would be helpful. However, with Chris now being virtually retired we are aware that our savings will have to last a very long time (we hope!) so large expenditure needs to be carefully thought out. Maybe finding out how much it would cost is a good first step!
Arrrrgggghh! I have just pressed a random key and lost a long-ish post!
Mick, it's great to see you! How are things in your world? You might have noticed that this thread was 12 years old yesterday?You have been around for a god bit of that time
(((Yums and family))) I add my hopes that today can be one of quiet celebration rather than terrible grief.
(((Snaily))) I agree with my esteemed colleagues - take that time off! They would have to manage without you if you were ill, which is a real possibility if you carry on as you are
Podds, doncha just love that kind of equality? Especially as the teaching staff will actually be getting time off, unlike you
(((DL))) sorry that you are still feeling so rough, it does seem to be a feature of the bug that is around currently. I hope the NF works its magic on you.
Chuggy, I am enjoying hearing about your recliner. We currently have 1 x 2 seater and 1 x 3 seater settees and all 4 end seats recline manually. However, they are not a great fit for me and not terribly comfortable so we have just ordered 1 motor driven (for me) and 1 manual recliner chairs (for MS). Sadly no showroom deal for us but MS reckoned it is worth spending some of MIL's money so that I can spend a bit more time in the lounge rather than living in my bedroom. We are now considering spending a bit more to have a loo put into the garage and a door knocked through into the hall. It would be really helpful - but that money could buy us a very nice holiday!
The Friend has not been speaking to SM since about June of last year! However, the third of the triumvirate lives in the same flats as mum and she and mum are very close. That's the reason SM never wants to be out for long - cos she wants to get back to D "because I love her and she loves me" which is sometimes TMI!
TM has been to visit today so I got into my onesie and downstairs - at the rate I am going In I will soon be able to give a sloth a run for its money (with a bit of training, of course )
Speaking of spence, where is she? She has been worryingly quiet of late
Chuggy, it sounds as if C3 is being sensible and recognising his limitations. It's worth doing that now in order to make a full recovery and get back to his beloved fruitbowl.
MS brought SM over for an hour this morning. It was a bit difficult cos mum is never a chatterbox and, having done nothing for the best part of a week, I didn't have much conversational sparkle. She asked when I would be driving again and looked a bit crestfallen at my reply ( 6 -12 weeks).
MS has also cooked a load of pancakes, I am feeling a little full...
