Boozy cake at an al anon meeting ?? Happy anniversary

Yay to Essex parkrunners - hope you're going in fancy dress too

Guessing you'll be busy with GCSE day today Podds - do you get one really big envelope to open the day before!?

CDWM was a success, though I believe voting may be somewhat harsh from the teenage contingent . I think she's trying to rig it so she can win. I may have to sulk. 

Went into her room to put clean washing on her bed. Having cleaned over the weekend it is already covered in layer of foundation powder. Looks like a crime scene that's being dusted for finger prints - really hoping it isn't.

She is due to leave on Sunday, but there are still no plans in place as to where she will be going. Welcome to the world of children's social services.

Happy GCSE results day - may the A*s be plentiful but of equal value to those given in the 1950's

Morning (?)

((((((Chuggy))))) Hope the toofs are betterer

(((((Snaily))))) If you keep doing the same you will get the same back - to get to different - something needs to change - not always easy. Hope the relies you want, move closer too.

Cheesy - you is madder than a mad thing. Sounds like a few others are planning some crazy execisey stuff too. Yums and Larry - what are you two up to then?

I like this listen to your body thing - mine has been saying 'don't bother running' for some time now - I haven't disagreed.

The weather will of course be getting colder - we go camping on Monday

Have been wondering about DG too

Last night was a success - FC2 was expecting me to wear the full make up etc. She didn't realise I would come as a 14year old boy -as you say - my usual clothes - in fact had to nip next door - don't think they had realised I was dressed for an occasion. Food was good and entertainment was the name game, lots of laughter. Tonight it's my turn - Dress code black or white (FC2 has limited wardrobe so my cowboy theme had to go) posh nosh and I'm always entertaining so no worries there then!?

Happy half way through the week - if we can just keep it together for a few more days there's a long weekend with my name on it

Sounds like a very active holiday you're having there Daffers.

Is it a Mazda Noggy? Seem to remember you buying it not so long ago?

Off to Nottingham today. Due to open a project for start of term - still need to get a building - not panicking - honest.

Happy Tuesday

Oooh that hotel looks lovely Noggy.

Snaily - Bingo!

Not going on the telly- can think of nothing worse. We are doing DIY Come Dine With Me. Tomorrow it's OH's turn - we are having lamb tagine, chocolate Brownie and the dress code for FC2 is dress to impress, for me it's dress like a teenager. There will be entertainment too. There will also be scoring, but hopefully no tears. It's all go in our household - there's even been glitter

True Grit sort of stuff there Cheesy. Can't imagine doing all those miles feeling the way you did.

Yay for Amelia. Glad you had a good time Noggmeister

((((~~~DG and nurse Podds)))))

You getting a new car Sluggie?

Read back last night so consequently can't remember much - Yums was getting a Porche, FP was having another quiet day, Daffers and Amandax are on holiday together and Tubs is collecting ponies.

We went to Twycross zoo on Saturday. Special £5 after 5pm offer to see an X Factor winner - Steve someone or other. We didn't see him - we saw lots of monkeys, some elephants and some amazing snow leopards. This week we will be mainly doing Come Dine With Me. Panicking now on what to cook even though  I know I'll never win.

Off to Londinium for a meeting - play nicely with this brand new baby week. Hope it grows up and makes you proud

Ding Dong Noggs - could you not sneakily put a little break dancing down the aisle in when no-one's looking?

Is there no one nearby who could lend you a camera Daffers?

Hope DG had a comfortable journey - hope the M25 wasn't endless Podds

Glad to hear the eye's OK Tubbs

Right I'd better shift my arris - off to Cardiff so shall miss today's production - splurge guns at the ready....

I can give a manly handshake, but I'd never contemplate cricket - I don't understand it - on many different levels. And I run like a girl. Well actually that's a lie - I run like a rock, as in, I don't at the moment.

I didn't get a part in Bugsy. I'm going to have to make my own splurge gun

Morning all

Thought I had woken to Groundhog Day there for a moment, but no, I see it's A level day so lots of news reports of young people leaping around or shots of clearing centres. Busy day for the school types in here - not me though!

((((((~~~~~DG~~~~~))))) impressive recovery. Sure your nursing wasn't at fault Podds - these things happen - look at Thandi the rhino and her skin grafts - some good, some not so successful. Will the DG get to meet Claire Balding too?

((((partners of snorers))))) Hope you had a peaceful night.

Today I shall be working from home - hoorah and falderee. It means I get to go to the theatre and drop off FC2. Maybe I should stay and audition....'We could be anything that we wanted to be...." I could pass for a 12 year old.....no?

Happy Thursday one and all - here's hoping the showers are brief and the results are better than expected

Yay too to Westie the wanderer returns

Lots of other ooohs ahhhs and awwws - sorry rubbish memory!

Great British Bake Off tonight - about exciting as my life gets! Happy Wednesday one and all - we're officially on our way to the weekend

(((((DG & Podds)))) hope the patient is doing better now he's back in top vetland.

(((((The Longstockings)))))) hope yesterday wasn't too awful

I read back Las night, so all other interesting, pertinent or noteworthy comments have slipped gracefully from my mind.

I am on a train to Londinium. You can tell it's the holidays, there are children on the early train. The commuters don't know what to do.

Happy Tuesday everyone, hope it brings a bit of sunshine and happiness your way
