what a relief Meldy, you now have £200 to spend on yourself
Love the top Sluggie, very you
(((Daffs))) not sure how old you are, but there could be a hormonal event going on here.
Podds I was listening to Radio 4 earlier, there was a programme about all those poor people who are trying to get to the UK presumably for a better/safer life than they have. One of the concerns was about the unaccompanied minors who are coming over. There was an interview with one of the foster mothers in Kent who has taken on two boys. She was saying how difficult it is to get them into school because the schools are 'saturated' her words. The saddest thing is that the government want to send the boys back as soon as they are 18, and yet they have potential to become doctors and lawyers. In this way, they would be giving something back to the country.
Do you get many of these youngsters? If so, what kind of message are they getting about the world. Especially thinking of some of the kids and parents that you describe. It all seems so up side down to me. Kids who want to do well, but aren't allowed to, and kids who's main ambition is to get on to the benefits system are nurtured.
Plastering - icing a cake, notalot of difference really I'm not sure about making a career of it though!
I've had a couple of those 'you've had an accident' calls lately. I'm afraid I get so impatient with them - the guys at the end of the line are trying to do a completely boring job for such little money. I guess they must be used to the irate 'customer' though. I only get out 'For Goodness Sake!" and the phone goes dead!
One lady I noticed on FB just starts jabbering at them in Welsh - I must try that, I only know a few words. The risk is, that the person on the other end would be a fluent Welsh speaker!
How sad for the family of Dougal Podds. I'm guessing that summer holidays get in the way of 'getting on with the job'. This country has only 10 months in any year to do any work - unless you're a teacher of course .
DL, I used to put my 'Out of Office' on early in the day of the last day. I could still answer urgent queries, but no one would expect a reply for any of the rest!
I'm doing a R4L with 8 year old Mia on Sunday - she has the potential to develop into a proper runner. She has good form and wins her sprint races at school. I do hope the weather is not as bad as currently forecast, hoping that the experience won't put her off!
We are having pink highlights in our hair, but only she is wearing the tutu - I'd look like one of those elephants in Fantasia .
happy holiday Sluggie - may you come back refreshed, restored and fighting fit
I love the idea of the Shabin DL. our family had one on the Gower, I don't know why, but my grandfather took it down and built a pigeon loft out of whatever wood was useable. I suspect it needed lots of repair. It's a shame really because those that were left fetched a pretty sum at one time.
I went swimming yesterday evening, the first dip in a pool in living memory. I have lots of work to do if I'm to swim without a recovery stop at each end! I managed 20 lengths - at least one length 20 times, my breathing was awful.
I hope all pets FC's and rellies are all playing nicely today
