Morning all

((((WIN - lurgified, operated on, broken ones, sad ones, those supporting the elderly, the overworked and undertrained, those suffering from hormonal turbulence, and the plain miserable))))))

Get you and your half price recliners Chuggy - you just need someone to feed you the peeled grapes now.

Sadly I shall not be coming to London for the WAISterfest - I am currently attempting to plan an exciting 50th celebration and failing!

Went to see Strictly Come Dancing last night. It's a great bit of fluff but a lot of fun. Jay's jive was amazing live. I coughed my way through it but as it's quite a loud affair no-one seemed to mind. And yes, another night in the spare room. I did point this out to OH that when I am ill I go there and when she is ill I go there!! I have a very hard life! 

Best get back to work - happy Wednesday one and all - hope the sun is shining where you are - makes a change!

Happy birthday everyone!

Sluggy has had her hair dry cleaned - that's a new one on me

((((JFF)))) difficult times

(((Yums and family)))

(((Daffer's nan))))

((((WIN)))) it seems like February is proving to be challenging

I slept in the spare room last night as my cough is developing nicely. It is of course because we are due to go out tonight. We are off to see Strictly. It's like a modern pantomime - I shall have to dig out my sequinned taffeta number.

Happy Tuesday one and all

((((Yums and family)))) Hope the funeral planning is going to plan

((((Sluggy)))) Are you plugged in and charging?

Pippi has been rambling and Podds has wind? - that's old age for you I suppose

I didn't drink much at all on Friday night - but I am a lightweight at the best of times - hence a headache on Saturday morning - accompanied by a very irritating sore throat/cough which has worsened over the weekend - Daffers - was that you!!!!?????

Off to London- best get a wiggle on

Happy sparkly new week full of germ spreading and Barry White impersonations

Thanks for the offer Podds. I may have a hangover tomorrow so I'll pass on the ass kicking.

Just logging off work - have happy weekend

Quiet in here these days.

Plan for the morning, get up, run, shower. 2 out of 3 isn't bad is it? 

I have been doing dry January but didn't start until the Monday after the new year. This means that I can drink this weekend - I'm quite excited! 

Happy finally February Friday

Hey Podds - the leadership thing was as expected. We did a bit of 'coaching for performance' which if you ask me is listening to your staff and helping them find solutions - seems we can wrap any old wisdom up in new packaging and waste a few hours learning to suck eggs. The sandwiches were disappointing too!

I have spent an hour designing an excel spreadsheet (not my thing) as a colleague reminded me I had promised to do. An hour later she emails me to say someone else has already done something similar and maybe I can incorporate it. Why did she wait an hour until I designed something that wouldn't easily transfer - aaaarrrrggggghhhh. I need caffeine

M.eldy - Oh no she isn't!

JFF - now is the time to ask for a pay rise!

Was supposed to get up an run this morning. Managed the first part. Working from home - how jolly. Is it nearly lunchtime yet???

((((Mr P)))) hope he's balanced

~~~~~Sluggie~~~~ hope the blood pressure is down - the vibes are turned up 

Meldy - does this make you a dame?

Went to the house of my mother last night as I was working away in the shires. There were moments where I had to grit my teeth - is it something about getting old that makes you less tolerant and forgiving?  

I have a whole day  'leadership' meeting today. As an old colleague used to call it 'Management, wanky, bollocks'. I wonder how many tines they might use the word 'vision' . I shall be thinking that I should have gone to Specsavers.

Happy Wednesday everyone - hope yours are rather jolly affairs

(((WIN))) did read back over the weekend. Seemed quiet. Hope the GPO got to eat.

I'm waiting for a train. Must be Monday.

Very busy weekend. Very excited birthday girl. Very knackered me. Had a proper party and everything.

Happy sparkly new week

Morning all

I know at a school where I worked they needed a fatality before they would change the speed limit - cheery stuff!

Loked after children also report loss of pets as one of the toughest parts about going into care - sometimes it is the only positive relationship a child might have.

Never believe everything you read in the papers - I hear they are saying they landed on the moon and we know that's not true. I want to stay in Europe if that helps.

Chaos here! 17 today and it's very exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Mostly because a second hand i-phone arrived in the post unexpectedly - a bargain at £60 and luckily enough birthday money has been received to be able to buy it. I am now the only person I know who doesn't have an i-phone. I don't even own my own mobile. 

FC off on her first driving lesson. We don't seem to be able to insure her on our car insurance as she hasn't been in the country long enough - not sure how we get around that one!

Happy Friday - I'm doing an old Daffy day and enjoying a Friday of luxury *sniggers evilly* I'm guessing you're at work Daffers
