Tubbs, from pictures I have seen, some of those oss boxes are pretty luxurious. I don't blame you for wanting to live in one!
DL, as someone who does not cope well with sudden changes of plan, I really don't know how you are managing to put up with the shenanigans of Social Services! I'm afraid that it would have been a deal breaker for me, even if everything else was working properly. Thank dog there are people like you who are rather more flexible in your thinking than some of us.
(((Chuggy))) oh goody, a hectic weekend is just what one wants at this time of year. I do hope that the fair goes well and you manage to find a few moments to yourself. That foot does sound painful, have you thought of taking it to Jos?
Glad that you were bled uneventfully Coco.
(((Snaily))) just in case you are looking in.
MS and I both slept really badly last night and are feeling rather rough today. I'm going to be in my PJs very soon. Poor MS has just gone to work .
4 boys DL? Bwa ha haaa! Seriously, that is abiiiig undertaking, I hope you will be getting a lot of support along the way.
Oh Pippi, that link is priceless. Clever dawgie knows what is good for him, never mind this obedience stuff.
(((Podds))) clearly your line-manager is a glueless kit.
(((Coco))) that is going to be a difficult visit, both Mr SA and his aunt will be glad of your support.
Yums, that sounds very daunting but you can do it if anyone can.
LOL at Chuggy's childcare tips
Daffs, things are better than they used to be (I used to have a friend who was childfree by choice and anyone would think she was Cruella DeVille the way some people acted) but society still can't get it's collective head around women who are sensible enough to not have kids. Ignore the taxi driver, everyone knows they are all gnat brains. Oh, did I say that out loud?
Sounds as if you have some fun in the offing Meldy, it is well deserved.
As usual, TM and I put the world to rights this arvo. I have skipped eaters' club though. I'm tired and achy so have opted for bed instead of going out.
(((Yummy))) the constant restructuring must be soooo difficult! How is Mrs Dawg?
Jenni, you are right. I blame ar$ebook . The fewer people post here, the less there is to comment on and so it goes on On the other hand, these things can be cyclical so we will have to hope for an upturn.
Podds, I'm so glad that the DG is doing well, long may it continue!
Quiet day here, it's grey and damp again so inside is the best place to be.
Hurrah for C3! I know he has worked very hard for this, but he must also have a fair amount of natural talent and brains too (I wonder where he got those from? *)
(((Mr FarFar))) as you say Jenni, his 'friend'could have been more helpful/tolerant at this point. However, guys do tend to ave a row and then forget about it, rather than seething for months as we ladies are more prone to do.
Awww, DL, there is a plastic birdie that will never see life due to your cat At least it keeps you interested.
(((Tubs))) yes, you are probably wise to avoid the possibility of emergency flights over the Christmas period. It's the kind of thing that most of us would not even think of.
It's been a nice day here - sunny and still mild but there was a perceptible autumnal chill in the air. It would have been a lovely day for a run. MS and I did a sluggie and pottered around looking for an oval tablecloth, only to end up buying on-line.
WAIST well xxx
