It has been conformed by 'experts' that my computer is fecked MS is wondering whether to get himself a tablet and let me have his lappie. I'm unsure what a tablet will actually do - can it use word, office, money etc or is it really only good for net surfing and apps?
Don't want to buy something because it is cheap(er) and then discover that it was a waste of money because it cannot do what we need it to!
(((Podds and Daffy))) we will lock you into a room together so that you can inflict your grumpiness on each other!
JFF, a 'Nigel' is a niggle.
Chugs, that is a great sum of money to be raised in such a rural area, so glad that Monty did you proud.
Hope you get your home back soon Snaily, I'm sure it will help you to feel more settled.
Great to hear that Mrs K has the bit between her teeth. MS and I were running at the same stage, even if we rarely actually ran together. It was nice to have a mutual interest, that's something we miss these days.
It has been mainly dry here this morning and mild in the sheltered areas. However, it is getting increasingly windy now and bits of tree are starting to fly around. Hope it is calmer by the time I go to choir this evening!
There is no real problem to showering with the antiseptic, although it does take a load of conditioner to stop my hair looking, and feeling, like straw. It is more of a problem having to not take the NSAIDs as that means increased pain. I'm not thinking too much about Thursday or beyond, half expect to have the appointment cancelled at the last minute.
(((Yums))) Daffy is right, the aim of Buddhism is not to make you feel grumpy! If you are being (or feeling) taken advantage of then only you can change this. There are lots of ways of doing this without causing offence - such as going straight on to the meeting from elsewhere so that you can't be taxi, or just telling them straight. Glad to hear that Mrs Dawg is going well.
(((Pods))) sounds as if it is more than time for a change! What is the job situation on Plannit Fannit?
(((JFF))) Sorry that you have a Nigel, can't offer any suggestions I'm afraid.
(((Snaily))) you know what they say 'when you are going through hell, don't stop'!
Glad that you are feeling OK today Spence.
Equipment hoist was working so I managed a.n aquagym this morning and it was my first day of antiseptic showering. Despite conditioner, it hasn't done much good for my hair. MS and I have done a sluggie today as bff is otherwise engaged (in Cambridge with son and hubbie).
Daffs, sorry to hear about HBP man. Although PD isn't the end of the world, it does take a lot of coming to terms with.
(((Snaily))) can you get yourself another phone number, or block the Mr's calls?
Podds, if the fizz is pleased then I would hang on to that. AS he says, surgeons always think that they can cure everything with one flash of the knife - taint always so.
My comp is fecked , am currently on MS's. It uploaded routine updates on Friday and that seems to have caused the problem. I would usually do a system restore but it won't let me, just shuts itself down...
I did an afternoon of this yesterday which was great fun. I would dearly have liked to do the whole weekend but sanity prevailed and I just did half a day. Maybe next year!
MS is at w*rk so I have had a very quiet day. Nearly time to switch the oven on and start thinking about dinner as SM is joining us. It sounds as if this fall-out with The Friend is rather longer lasting than usual, SM has re-joined the residents' committee of the housing association where she lives and is looking to do a bit more on her own - which can only be a good thing, even if it does mean a bit more input from me.
Mixed weather here, the sun is shining at the moment but it is starting to get a bit windy, as forecast.
