Welcome home your Meldyship, I'm afraid I have lost count of how many .s you have earned. I think this one was hard earned in view of the deluge you had to cycle in.
HI and welcome Paul. Slower than you can imagine is the way to go if you want to be in the running game long-term.
MC, it must be nearly time for a holiday - after all, you are always just getting over one or looking forward to the next one Seriously though, I do think it is hard for everyone to knuckle down again after the long break, fatigue soon sets in!
My sympathies to those suffering from coryza (it sounds much more serious than a cold!). I think it is about the worst you can feel without actually being seriously ill!
DL, hope you enjoyed welsh Wales - and that they eventually let you back into England
MS and I went over to Mum's this morning, while she was out, and attacked her airing cupboard (no, that's not a euphemism). Have left everything tidy and labelled - I wonder how long that will last!
This evening I have been to a small group session with the guy who runs our choir. He says that my voice is OK but not strong enough, the cure is to sing at volume for 5 mins every day. MS is delighted
Huge congratulations Meldy! and well sherpa-d Podds. I'm told that drinking copious quantities of alcohol are essential to both
Well done MC
Well, we have 'bitten the bullet' and put this house on the market. I'm sure it is the right thing to do - I just wish we could go straight from where we are now to 'settled in new home' without all the hassle in between!
Sounds as if you arrived safely then Podds. Happy sherpa-ing. Well done for initiating that talk about your work load - it is well overdue!
Pippi, sorry that you weren't able to get out with the photo club Hope you soon feel on top of things and able to have a life too!
It looks as if summer has ended and people have landed down to earth with a large bump. Never mind, it's nearly Christmas
I haven't heard from bff, so I am guessing that no news is good news. TM is going away for a few days. SM seems to be pottering along without any alarums and excursions. What am I going to do with myself?
Afternoon/evening all - it's feeling rather more like evening, I'm afraid
Meldy, what terrible news about your friend I love the idea of the GPO being left to the WAISTer lounge
Podds, are you sherpa-ing or competing next weekend?
(((MC))) you really don't seem to have been fully fit for some time.
Jenni, that sounds a good way to spend a weekend! Glad that you are all enjoying the new camper.
Nice to see you Yums! You seem to be bizzy bizzy but it sounds as if you are fitting in some fun things.
If/when we move, the priority will be to make sure my kitties are OK - but there will always be room for my WAISTermates
I saw BFF today, as usual for Mondays. While we were out she got a call saying that the prognosis for her mum is very poor I also got a message from my TM saying that he is going away for a few days - he really doesn't cope well when his daughter is ill On the plus side, I haven't been called to sort out SM today!
We are not too badly infested with arachnids at the moment. There's just the one that has taken up residence in our smallest room
Hope you are able to have a restful weekend mc!
Podds, I do hope you were able to get home in time to prevent puddles!
Yes, SM seems blithely unconcerned about her incontinence or the effect it has on anyone else. The staff said they tried to approach SM discretely 'ooh, you seem to be wet . . .' 'Oh yes' says SM 'I've wet myself'.
I phoned the continence service again this morning in desperation and spoke to someone different. I said I was in need or urgent advice. Her best advice? Go to Boots and see what they have on the shelves!
Fortunately, things have been better today. I do wonder if the Day Centre might have 'pushed fluids' a little too enthusiastically!
Much cooler here today but still comfortable. There was a thunderstorm overnight but not nearby, it just seemed to roil around for a while.
Hope everyone finds some time to enjoy the weekend.
