(((Meldy))) can't understand why you are tired. After all, you had a lazy weekend
(((Yums))) I agree with Larry that you are more likely in need of TLC than the harribert.
(((Larry))) how frustrating that you have picked up an infection just as you were doing so well. Don't try to hurry the recovery, that is more likely to set you back than do you good.
(((Podds and DG))) I suspect the time will pass more slowly for you than him.
Great race report, thanks MC! I always like the idea of open water swimming. The reality is a different thing..
Noggy, thanks for the translation. You are quite right to point out that many people in this area make their living from the grockles so they are not unwelcome. As Dragon said, it's good to get out and about in own area and enjoy the things that make other people visit. There are worse ways of spending time than sitting on the quay in the sunshine eating chips
Coco, I'm glad to hear that the arrangement have been made and hope that everything goes according to plan.
Welcome Monty, he sounds a darling!
DL, you will have provided an oasis of happiness in the Laddo's life, I'm sure that will stay with him whatever his future brings.
Took Cleo to the V E T this morning, just routine stuff like booster jabsand flea treatment. Unfortunately, she is playing host to a legion of the little biters Just short of £100 for that .
Then did a sluggie with MS, managed to find a quiet few minutes although every where is heaving! Temps up to 27C again and school holidays have started which is not a combination likely to result in peace and quiet anywhere.
GO GO GO Meldy and MC's team RARARA. I haven't looked into the Outlaw thread yet (have only just fired up comp) so have no idea how peeps are doing generally.
Happy Birthday FP and mini2. It doesn't seem possible that your baby is 15 already Yumms! What is the eldest thinking of doing after he has finished school?
No word from Larry? I do hope Holly is OK.
Podds, I'm so glad that you won't have to wait long for a specialist opinion. Vibe machine will be on full power for tomorrow.
(((Tubs))) I'm so glad that you and Megs are being well looked after. What are TB's please, and what is 'sweet itch'?
Sue, I don't know the ins and outs of the meds but I do know that he is on a suboptimal dose of something currently as it caused heart problems. It is so sad to see such a bright young man crippled by the condition. The psych team are trying to get him into supported housing (he has to be on ESA for this to be funded?) but it is not certain that he will be able to manage that.
Yes, I am getting quite familiar with the health/disability benefits unfortunately! I'm glad that my experience is helpful to others, it makes me feel that I am still making a contribution to society, even though I am no longer working.
Chuggy, I hadn't ever heard about the planting of the mai before, it sounds as if these things are very well attended, I guess it forms the main entertainment in such remote communities. Have you heard anything else from C1 yet?
Noggy, you certainly eat well, I think we should designate you 'WAISTer chef'! We have a ready-made paella for dinner
Still very warm here although there does seem to be a bit of a breeze today. Temps were around 27C when we were out at lunchtime.
