((((Daffers)))) hope you find relief in a tube of something soothing - it was a good thing that you did.

M.eldy - this weekend we had a dead mouse delivered at 4.30 am and the gift of puke in the kitchen - you'll understand then, that I shall be declining your kind feline offer

Yums - I did wonder whether you'd have to go back to the beginning with everything in your job - what joy!

Podds - hope this week proves less medically challenging. Bad/good news on the lad but at least they know what it is.

Having run twice I,  of course, came down with a raging cold this weekend. OH has had one and said it was barely noticeable. I spent two days with a waterfall coming out of my nose and eyes. I think it's an allergic reaction to the running!

Happy new week - hope it brings you something sunshiny and exciting

Wow - quite surprised really

Can Chuggy still play?

I'm off to another foreign country - Welsh Wales here I come

Happy day of wondering what happens next and realising that all things political will be focused on getting us out of one mess and into another for the next few years

Good to see Chuggy is back on the map and the weeds are once again being tamed.

I am in a leafy village B&B. Having had an awkward breakfast making polite conversation with a businessman about the EU referendum I remember why I avoid B&B's usually. I did another run yesterday. This had rather a lot of hills which were barely staggered up, let alone run. My body is now telling me that I may have overdone things!

Happy historic European decision day

Good news on the recuperating mother front Far Far. Hope it speeds her recovery.

What modes of transport did you experience today Daffers. You're not replacing Tim Peake are you?

Sounds like you had a pleasant day Sluggie.

I have bought OH a present whilst I've been away. A humane mouse trap. Better than flowers!

I have just been for a 'run'. As I didn't pack my Garmin I think I am safe in estimating that I covered at least 10 miles. Admittedly I didn't make it to the village which is 5 miles away before I turned around but that's only because they moved it.

Happy trying to be sunnier but not really being overly convincing Tuesday.

Evening all

Sounds exciting, wherever you are Daffs

Hope the bed sores clear and your Mum soon recovers Farty. Elderly parents are a worry.


Had a good time at the wedding over the weekend. It's not often these days you get the chance to dance the night away. They do however manage to drag these things out. Seems much time is given to getting the photos. I guess at the price it costs you want the permanent reminder!

First weekend away without FC so of course there was a little drama. All OK now.

Also reported that dead mouse was placed on the rug of sacrifice whilst we were away. This did not explain why OH was screaming at me last night and why I spent a fruitless hour trying to catch another one. It's all well and good having a cat but I wish she wouldn't bring them in to rehome. I am now away until Thursday, I wonder what will happen.......

Happy rainy new week. Hope it brings sunshine through the clouds.

No sign of ickle mouse or its remains. Can I assume it is taking up residence somewhere unseen, perhaps in the larder nestled up to the rice or bread? Should I alert friends who are coming to look after FC today? should I tell OH as we drive away for the weekend? or should I just let life and adventure unfold as the fates see fit..... I think you all know me well enough.

Happy nearly the weekend

ooh well impressed Dragon Lady

Have just watched an ickle mouse appear from behind the sofa and saunter into the kitchen. Didn't want to alert OH as it would result in screaming histrionics and me spending hours trying to catch the thing. Wandered calmly and covertly into kitchen, can see no sign. I am hoping that blur will do something to resolve the situation overnight.

Joy to the world

I was supposed to be going to Welsh Wales today. Got up early, showered, put on my best brogues and bowler hat, filled my travel mug and headed for the door then had a phone call to postpone the visit. I am all discombobulated.

Was SM all nice and bendy after her visit to the physio Sluggy?

Hope the dogs have recovered from realising they haven't been made homeless Farty

Do you get to control Ascot M.eldy? Can you put a bet on for me?

((((Daffers)))) Get yourself a bit of cake - that'll cheer you up.

We are off to a wedding round M.eldy's parts over the weekend. The mother of OH arrives here today in preparation of us supplying taxi services. I am currently girding my loins. We are leaving FC with 'babysitters' . A big weekend all round!

Happy surprise day at home Thursday

Glad to hear TM's life is on the turn around. Glad to hear the flea uprising in the shires has been cut off at the pass. 

Hope the eruptions in houndieland have subsided

I should be on my way to Bury - that's up North I believe - best be on my way

Happy wet Wednesday

It boiled down to, glad to have you back Farty hope your Mum is on the mend, take some time off to recover Podds , I might like to fall off a cliff on a wire if I'm feeling brave enough, brave vibes for Pippi and a school trip, hello Yums how's things and stuff like that.

My car has passed its MOT - yay
