Good grief Melds - he's an ungrateful little sod sometimes isn't he! 

I'm going home - SLT have managed to piss me off even when they're on holiday - all tied in with appraisals and pay rises and I feel I've been given false info..........

Oh well, nought I can do.........but I am going on strike instead and going home early

Of course nobody will realise but it will make me feel better!

Morning All

Between work stuff, Tubs and Fling, the NL minister's speech and thoughts of Rossie and Evie I'm sat in the office in a right mess!

FWIW Chuggy I'm inclined to agree with the others with the caveat that you know Rossie and you are absolutely best placed to make the decision........

Tubbs - I don't know if it helps at all but when I was really struggling at the weekend (more later) I was pulling up thoughts of the fact I was doing this for all the hounds still waiting for forever homes, but also in memory of Tim (friend's hound who had cancer), Manny/Dougal (greyhound beaten to death) and Fling.........so he helped me tough it out..........

DL - as Larry says, so very frustrating but goodness only knows "the system" can be more than unfathomable and has a tendency to be very single-minded and slow moving.........

Right - best go do some work, although not overly minded to do so....

Afternoon All 

I'm back

A little sore in some odd and unexpected places and some nice road rash courtesy of the Pont d'Argenteuil (but nothing serious) but going to have an easy week!

Please excuse lack of comments on others but am at work (supposedly working) so can't read back too much!

Will read back and post full report this evening

Thanks to everyone who donated and all the good wishes.......

Morning All

No storms here - too far east - and the temp overnight didn't drop below 20C so I have got rather unhappy pooches at the moment

Kids have a half day today as it's the last day of the school year for them and the teachers........think I'll stay in my office!

I've been eating out at a cafe / restaurant on the Harbour Arm......... Sadly low tide doesn't always make for the freshest of harbours but who cares after wine and Baileys

Sweet dreams - need my bed - nitol

Happy Writing Sue

We rarely do school trips these days to be honest but when we did those who stayed behind had "special" days too (unless it was punishment style) so didn't seem to miss out too much - they certainly didn't do normal lessons or sit around doing nothing

Nowadays they do much more select reward trips with far fewer pupils so it's even less of an issue, it's just like any other school trip throughout the year

I'm bored!

I've got shed loads to do but can't any sense out of anybody as they're all demob happy so I'm doing the minimum required and will get on with the piles of stuff next week in peace and quiet

This morning I started the day paddling in the sea with the dogs.........well when I say the dogs....................the DG paddles happily, Sharkey (despite his name) will just about get his paws wet whilst the NV won't go near the wet stuff.........it might be dangerous and he doesn't like to take such huge risks 

To be honest by about 7am they were flagging as it's too hot to be a dog today, even beside (or in) the sea!

I heard that Spence................Chuggy stop encouraging her!! Daught isn't doing a family thing she's just staying home!!!!!!!!!  Although on a serious note the odd day or two certainly doesn't hurt........but too many of our parents take the p*ss!

Although we had a corker recently when we thought the family were on holiday (kids talk) but mum had phoned child in with some illness.......so we phoned home and got a house-sitter who cheerfully confirmed that they were indeed on holiday........   One letter and one fine later.........   Lying never pays!!

(((Tubbs))) - glad Meg is a little bit more settled with her pal.......doesn't help your grief over Fling but does at least mean you don't need to worry about her so much...

Oh DL - sounds like you have been turned upside down and inside out  Sounds like it's going cautiously well though too........as if there was ever any doubt with the tender ministrations of you and OH

Oh Kieran............you have no idea what you've committed yourself too now..........racing with Spence...........   .........she is known for the......errr........"quality" of her company on these occasions..............

All I can say is..........you are one brave man
