Very relieved it's not one of your chums, podds. As you say life is precious and unpredictable
Hope you're feeling better, MC
Well runned, Becks
Bird took me out for afternoon tea yesterday. When we arrived a noticed my run buddy and thought fancy seeing Laura. Then I spotted my other run buddies smiling away. How funny seeing them... it took a few seconds to realise they were waiting for me. I was lost for words. Balloons, pressies, Prosecco and lovely run buddies. I'm a ??ucky gal to have such lovely chums I have a Fox taken up residence along the side of my garage
Good morning Pippi, I love your description of Shetland & Orkney. I had no idea it had such history The pics are fab too. I love the peaky puffin
Good luck, Podds. Is it really the ironing this weekend? Those clever boys winning those rosettes. They are gawjuss. What a proud mummy you must be
((((MC and family))) difficult news for you all. I hope you can all enjoy life as it is without thinking too much about what may be ahead. Great that the kids were ll huggy after their GCSE results. Well done you.
*waves to Sue in Mickey Mouse land*
M...eldy, what a sweet ickle birdiepie
Sluggy, it sounds as though it may take a little time t settle SM's carers in. Happ birhday, sweetie pie Are you doing anything nice ?
How is Ned's running coming along, Mrs Farfar ?
Pippi, I did laugh at your friend who took her wellies and cossie etc for her surprise weekend and then went somewhere completely different
Thank you for my birthday wishes. As it was a big one bird spoilt me. We spent the weekend staying at West Usk lighthouse just outside Newport in welsh wales. Wind, rain, a Tardis, Dalek, hot tub and prosecco and eldeflower gin. Perfect
Thank you also for the views on further education. No 1 is looking at apprenticeships. He'd forgotten he had also applied to South Wales Uni who wrote offering him a place but I don' t think his heart was ever in it. He's a bit of a homebird. Not sure what's got into no 2 but this week he's mowed the lawn, painted in the house and washed the car - all without me asking
I dobelieve bird is treating me to afternoon tea tomorrow
Lol at Alfie and Sky. Are girl cats generally dominant or is Alfie a soft hearted fella?
Good to hear that Sm care package is in place. Good also to be there to ensure they understand what you need them to do. Well done on making it half way through the week without too much stress.
Well done on manning the phones, Daffy. I know your help is appreciated by thse trying to sort themselves out following the results.
Well done, Ned. That sounds like excellent progress. There can't be many dogs that return to their owner when something far more interesting is going on. And as you say, he is friendly enough but responsile of you to understand that despite his friendly nature, it can still freak some dogs out.
Take it easy, MC. Hopefully it is just a tweak. Best put you leg up and watch the limpets
Well done on the run, DL. I thought I saw something on the news about it. Its good to know disruption is the norm when trying to improve things. Lol at OH being invited to a foam pardee. Will you have to endure typical student behaviour from now on - staying in bed late, leaving things all over the floor and so on ?
Welcome home, Pippi. I'm looking forward to hearing about your adventures and hopefully seeing some lovely pics
Sue, that parking thing is highway robbery!
Podds, so sorry to hear about Kenny. How ridiculous to return him for those reasons. Those eejits don't deserve to have a luffly hound. I love black hounds And thank goodness the fine was sorted sensibly.
As Daffy mentioned, yesterday was A level results day. No1 didn't do especially well. No surprise to me as he hasn't put the work in. Spent yesterday trying to salvage something but not sure there's much point as he doesn't seem committed or be aware of what Uni actually involves. No 2 did well with his AS levels though. After a very frustrating day with No1, I spent the evening with mummsy...It was a frustrating evening too. It would be nice if she let me finish explaining things before talking over me and I end up explaining the same stuff over and over
Today I am mainly reporting to bird's gaff with run and swim gear for a mystery weekend. I reckon she has a run to the local baths and a swim planned.
Podds, we keep missing each other - either that or you're ignoring me I;ve been thinking of you the last couple of days. Sunday I was at the Greyhound walks show. Lots of lovely hounds needing homes. But what really reminded me of you was the greyhound indoor collars in Pirate design and colours. Also I ran along the prom early yesterday Kent was close enough to touch Glad the boys seem ok after the sad loss of Sharkey.
Sue, how luffly to be ready for a new hound and very responsible to be choosing based on your lifestyle and a rescue I can't offer any advice really as i've only had a hound who was of course divine Useless for anything energetic or guarding but a fab companion and so tolerant of kids. Loved hearing about the lurcher. He sounds wonderful
Well done on doing less, Becks
Oh MC, poor gibbil and poor son. Love the idea of freezing it for a proper funeral when you return. The cable car trip sounds amazing
Lol at SM, Sluggy. I understand what she meant. She remembered she had forgotten to take her meds although could you trust her answer.
Daffy, tell me more about the face pulling. Is it an Olympic event? I can do it as a multi discipline especially when I run. ceiling painting with sore arms sounds tough.
Did you actually get out and run, DL ? Or were you just getting into the Olympic spirit?
Westie, whose bed have you been sleeping in if not your own Welcome home
Any news form Chuggy ? Is she running her french B&B
(((FarFar)))) Look after yourself. Well done on the run club running
Sunday I went with bird, her two kids and grandkids to the houndie and lurcher show. So many Cush lookelikeys that it was an emotional day. I fell in love with 2 1/2 year old Jake. A big black boy who was very patient and calm and loved hugs and cuddles...sighs. Aside from my circumstances not permitting, I'm not ready for another dawg. Thursday it will be a year since we lost Cush. I am busy painting at home to try and improve my surroundings. Unfotunately the house seems more of a mess than before I started.
