Chuggy, I was also going to suggest that the visitors give Monty his ball, must be worth trying if Podds endorses it!
Podds, I'm glad that at least some of the parents were prepared to do the right thing.
Oh dear Meldy, I shudder at the idea of the GPO in a strop!
Oooh, do we have to bow do you now Spence? Ot just carry on sticking out our tongues as usual?
Tubs, I do hope that things are improving now that you are a few days/weeks post op.
I have an appointment for a pre-op check on 19th March. That should mean that my trial is done by mid-June, all being well. I thought it would be after our hols in July so I'm pleasantly surprised - that doesn't happen often with the NHS these days!
Chuggy, I'm presuming that your tablet is auto-correcting 'Sluggie' to sludge? I'm not an expert with dawgs but I would think that Monty should only be greeted when he is calm and quiet (maybe sitting?) and ignored when he is behaving otherwise.
Podds, that teacher is a disgrace! I have no words bad enough to describe what I think of those boys

((( Tubs ))), I am in complete agreement with the Dragon. Basic courtesy costs nothing, however busy someone is. I hear so many stories of poor care these days, it is embarrassing to have been part of that profession . I can understand you not wanting to make a formal complaint - apart from anything else, you are in a very vulnerable position when you still need care from them. I would suggest a quiet word with 'PALS', every hospital should have one. Glad that |Mini Tubs had such a good time, it sounds as if he did well.
Chuggy, I do love your stories about Monty, he is a bright lad and he clearly wants to please. I bet he can't believe how lucky he is to have moved in with such kind peeps.
It's another lovely day here, although still rather chilly, I'm trying to persuade MS that a gentle stroll would be nice before we do a sluggie
WAIST well xxx

(((Daddy Spence))) (((Spence))) yes, I know what you mean, we have gone through the same thing with our mums in the past year or two.
(((Mr Daffs))) if he thinks barium is difficult to swallow, wait till he tries to flush it away later. I have grim memories of barium and shared facilities...,
Awww, what a pity that Pippette didn't get the job but it does sound as if she did extraordinarily well considering her lack of experience.
Chuggy, how lovely that C3 is going to cook, with a bit of encouragement it might become a regular fixture
Dragon, I'm glad that you are feeling better, I do hope that HWMBT doesn't fulfil his expectations!
DL, I think a pony will be the very least that is expected
My friend has a week of investigations in store, then we will have a better idea of exactly what is in store but ti does look highly likely that the Big C is involved.
Yesterday went well, it was lovely to get together with family we hadn't seen for 30 years. Of course, we all promised that we would try and meet up again under happier circumstances - but we said that last time! SM was dry eyed, said that her sister had always been 'difficult (pot;kettle;black). When prompted she agreed that there must have been some happy times - but she certainly can't remember them.
SM was a bit confused at times, but generally managed well. However, it we ever go away overnight with her again we are certainly not going to share a room. By this morning it was a toss up whether MS or I would kill her first!
I'm very , (partly due to having been woken by SM 4 times during the night) it will be an early night for me.
