  • @lakedistrict thats awful..

    Any indication of when they might get round to doing it?

     

    My OH was at the gp this morning his knee has gone again he was referred for photos and mri .We phoned the hospital and the xrays are tomorrow but the hospital said sorry they can’t fit him in for the mri tomorrow so he has to wait until next Tuesday ….they…[Read more]

  • Absolutely agree bills cone first .. but a good tip is to check each year if you are getting the best deal from phone, cable and energy suppliers. We also check our insurance each year to make sure we are not paying more than we should. Some companies offer a discount if you have more than one policy with them and offer discounts if you pay per…[Read more]

  • Thinking about the thread Money too tight too mention. I wondered if we might all share any money saving tips we have that can help each other through tough times or just that week before pay day when pennies are tight.

    One of my favourite apps at the moment is Too Good to Go which I know is up and running in the UK  too,  it basically allows y…[Read more]

  • At first thought I would say no but then… I thought about it and I suppose yes I have some treasured memories.

    Loads of little things from the children like when my son seriously asked my husband.. daddy when you were little and the dinosauruses were around did you live in a house or a cave?

    How each Christmas I would send the children to…[Read more]

    The eclipse last night was a penumbral lunar eclipse meaning the sun earth and moon were all perfectly aligned. The views from here were stunning.

    At one point I did question my sanity standing in the freezing cold taking photos of the moon. But then I was reminded of something a lady from New York said about hardly ever seeing the moon and never…[Read more]

    Oh dear, I have to say that I used to get terrible gifts all the time.. It wasnt an intentional thing but even though I would tell people that Im allergic to many if not most bath products and cosmetics I would get bath sets every year.

    I always accepted gifts in the spirit they were given and just put them in a store cupboard to be re-gifted via…[Read more]

    @SpinningJen  that looks much like our countryside.  I love seeing such wide views and open skies..

    I think you look great in your selfies the messy hair one looks very fun..

    There are very few photos of me at all but I liked this one I took while I was on a walk in November, it looked nice outside but it was soooo cold out that day hence the huge parka..

     

  • It depends on the context and the way its done..

    A good rule of thumb is never do anything you wouldnt do if your partner was in the room.

    So yes I flirt and so does my husband.. Our postlady says she likes delivering at our house in winter because he is always ready with a warm hug for her! When I hear her giggle I call out to him ‘stop…[Read more]

  • At the moment I am feeling quite proud. I opened my Christmas saving tin and I paid for all my gifts , cards postage etc out of it. As @mamie says its so much fun to spend guilt free from a saving account even more fun to have no debt in January…

  • This is what I love about summer markets, mostly the stall holders are local people and they have all day to chat about their goods some of which are home made. They are genuine people not someone who is just there to collect a wage packet.

    Then at Christmas time my daughter and I love the German markets and always laugh that we eat our way…[Read more]

  • I’m so sorry to hear you are having troubles with your family.

    Sometimes people need space and time to sort themselves out before they can behave nicely to others.

    Don’t give up.

    After I read a newspaper article from 1955 yesterday which talked about calling for a ban on fireworks due to unruley behaviour I am near to giving up hope of seeing change because it means that the teenagers from then are the grandparents of now..They have raised their children with fireworks and their children have raised another generation with…[Read more]

    A turn of events with the zoo fire today , a 60 year old woman and her two adult daughtershave turned themselves into police in Germany. They heard that the fire had most likely been caused by one of those awful Chinese wish lanterns which are banned in Germany but the ladies had bought some in from abroad and set them off.

     

    I bet this wasnt…[Read more]

  • I do but sadly since a bad reaction to medication I can no longer wear my rngs including my weddng band. Even though they are good quality gold as soon as I put them on my fingers swell.

    However I can still wear earrings and I have my ears pierced 3 times  I wear small twinkling studs in the top two holes and leave the main piercing for a fancy…[Read more]

    Another tragic turn in the whole sorry chain of events is that police have found who set fire to the flats where the father and son died via cctv and have charged a 12 and 13 year old boy with arson that has caused loss of life..

    The boys actually live in the same building.

    Imagine being just 13 and charge with at least 2 deaths.. the mother and…[Read more]

  • @terrihoney

    Thankyou for your post clarifying some of your ealier points. I have to agree with you that a lack of morality is to blame for much of what ails our society now. Although I believe in freedoms of speech religion and sexuality I also believe in respecting others rights and I have to say there is too much one sidedness in todays world.…[Read more]

    What an awful night. Not so much for us as we have been using cbd oil for our dog and that helped calm him although thinking there was a bit of a lull in the shelling around 10pm we tried to let the boys have a wee in the garden only for a bomb to go off next to our hedge and it scared George witless, at midnight to avoid most of the assult I hid…[Read more]

    New Year , is there anyone who hates it as much as I do? I could honestly cry right now.

    I hate this with a passion.
    Im so lucky to live in a country where people are relaxed and civil they say goodmorning or offer help to total strangers, some people still leave their back door unlocked (even here in the city), children can play outside without…[Read more]
