Gosh Meldy that is indeed a crisis!!

Can't believe you've been booted out when you're the ill one DL! Completely the wrong way round. Mr Daffs has been on the sofa for 4 nights now

Just booked trains for our cheery meet up - how is it only just over 3 weeks away?! March?! After a bit of ferretting round I managed to go through MegaTrain and get them for ??30 return, woo hoo! Mind you, I'm going to be there at 8.30am so by the time the rest of you arrive I'll have spent the difference on tea and almond croissants anyway

Who else has booked? Just me and dragon at the minute?!

Ooh, is it our birthday today?! How very exciting! Does that mean we can have cake?? Mind you, I lost 3.5lbs this week (mostly by virtue of feeling so rotten I didn't want to eat) so I might resist

Not booked my train tickets either - apparently I can acquire a sneaky discount card from work so going to try that today and that should get me a bit extra off. Always a trade off - can usually get ??10-20 cheaper if I change at Doncaster on the way back so I often do that - only to find myself sat at Doncaster in the dark thinking 'I'd pay good money to not be here'... then next time I'm tempted by cheaper tickets again...

Welcome back sluggy! hope you're back to full speed again soon xx

(JFF's mum)))))))

My nan moves into a care home today. All for the best and it looks like a nice place but still a bit sad. She thinks it's just temporary while she gets stronger - but then she also thinks she does all her own shopping and cooking at the minute too... Hoping she'll settle once she has all her own stuff round her.

Glad you've got a date Yums. Never an easy time lass, look after yourself xx

((((sluggy)))) glad you're home too, hope it all kicks in soon. 

Sorry about your windy troubles Podds!  

Love your idea of a 'day off' Dragon Good on you with all your exciting adventures! 

((((Waister pals)))) 

Feeling slightly more like a human today Still coughing like I've been smoking 60 a day for years mind you (I haven't, I promise!) Got some kind of cough suppressant from the chemist as it's not, er, a *productive* cough, just a really bloody irritating one with no use - now my sense of taste is starting to come back I've realised just how vile it is!  Going to have to work at home tomorrow now I've not got my own office any more - I'll be thrown out before lunchtime with this cough otherwise!

I don't think you're meant to be saving up ALL of January's booze to drink in one night DL!

I have indeed been lying down (on the sofa) from 1pm until just now, literally without moving, just watching endless crap tv. Not felt this crap for a long time. Still can barely speak, every time I cough I feel like hot knives are stabbing my throat and my ribs are going to collapse. Right pathetic, but I actually don't care. Barely eaten anything all day, most unlike me!! Fortunately I'm pretty good at sleeping so I should at least have a restful night...

Oh that's just cruel meldy, poor GPO

Happy late birthday to FC! How wonderful So pleased you've been able to give her a home, there must be so many older children waiting for foster care or adoption. Glad you've all had a good day!

(((((Snaily))))) hope they sort you out lass, not sustainable! Xxx

((((Sluggy and SM)))))) Glad she's been off line dancing at least!

((((((Poorly, working too hard, overwhelmed and just plain grumpy waisters)))))

All good here New job still great, after a whole four weeks Including Fridays still feel like I have MUCH more time and SO nice to be able to work without being hampered by old boss (although sadly i am still working with her on one thing and she does vex me greatly in relation to that!) Colleagues are lovely, work is challenging but really interesting and the students are GREAT, really lovely, interested in the world and willing to chat. Of course some haven't even turned up at all yet so I don't know about them Mostly they're localish and from poorer backgrounds and quite a few seem still quite shocked that they've got tto university at all so it's a really nice community to be in

House is a tip Doing everything at once of course as we get bored easily and can just switch between activities as we're doing most of it ourselves. I'm currently painting stairs and landing (well, not right now, I'm still in bed...) which requires 6 coats of different types of paint so is taking forever, and Mr Cheery has been sorting the electrics in the spare bedroom (having installed about 47 sockers several years ago to turn it into a workshop, some at eye level, looked quite mad and hard to decorate round!)

Off on an 'advanced plastering' course today...

No running but I did join the gym and pay upfront for an annual pass. Tis is same building as my office so no excuses! mostly doing spin classes at the min. Nan still in hospital, will visit tomorrow. Apparently my 'auntie' (other grandma's elderly neighbour) is in the next ward so can pop in and see her too

That's what lights are for sluggy I'm painting the stairs, so there's no natural daylight anyway!  

Anyway, I went to sleep instead Will try again tonight... 

No trains for me. My task for the day is to try and learn everyone's names. All 80 odd of them...
