• I do hope not Kitty! Please don’t make assumptions and wait for tests. I know that even a few years ago I used to have a very sweet tooth and had lots of chocolate plus very sweet tea and coffee. These days I have changed but do notice that I am still unusual in having sugar in drinks. Most I know have stopped. It may well be that you don’t have…[Read more]

  • I think that the feminist thing may be like a red rag to a bull and attract attention. I do agree with Kitty in that such men are cowards. They are somtimes of similar attitude to rapists who like to show their power but are often very cowardly and don’t understand or even try to understand how to relate to people.

  • It sounds like a typical winter bug Kitty. You will feel better in a few days. I hope sooner rather than later. Take care x


  • I would suggest furniture that is robust and practical. You don’t want to be frustrated by cheap flatpack things that are always falling apart. One point to consider is whether you are working in isolation or whether you are inviting clients into your premises and so will have to showcase your office. In that case your office becomes part of the…[Read more]

    I know the feeling lol.

  • Wonderful! Savour every moment. I am happy for you. Everyone deserves those moments.

  • Good luck with the scan!

    Lovely photographs! How many bad ones do you get Mamie as well as these really good ones? I wonder as with my art references I take only about one in ten is of any use at all.

  • Funnily I had to really think about this. Sometimes I get really nostalgic, often even for things that I have never known, like when I play my 78’s from earlier times and imaging things from those times. I cannot possibly be remembering true events (at least not to me). Things happen at odd moment too, like when I was running beside a stray dog I…[Read more]

  • I do buy the ‘wonky’ veg at Morrsons as it is cheaper than the usual perfect examples. It is often worth looking on the discount shelves too although supermarkets have got wise and often don’t discount produce that is going out of date on the same day until late in that day.  After events such as Christmas it is worth looking for seasonal things…[Read more]

  • When I travelled a lot with work I burned lots of CD’s. I have compilations of lots of types of music, but don’t play them so much these days.

    Where I live is very much like that. There are other parts closeby which are more wooded but only in small patches. In the other areas withing walking distance it is more hilly but nothing to speak of. It’s mostly arable land these days but there are some flocks of sheep and a few horses. Cows are getting pretty rare now.

    I love to get out around…[Read more]

    “Dust catchers?” – It’s a common term here lol. I have had some pretty poor presents in the past. Nothing really too bad but there have been some things that I have never used. I know that it is complicated to choose presents for lots of people at the same time.  I think the only things I have received which were secondhand have been old art…[Read more]

    It looks lovely there Cassandra! It reminds me of yesterday. I visited someone on the fens east of Peterborough here in the UK. The road I travelled on had only just recently been opened and there were still flooded fields, complete with Swans, on either side. More like wetlands! The rain has taken it’s toll. Here is a fairly recent one of me…[Read more]

  • Perhaps it is fairly common but in my field of healthcare it was a bit of ‘dog eat dog’ in general rather than any obvious prejudice in relation to gender.

    You are very photogenic. I love the sweater!

    An interesting question Mamie as, being technically minded and, to some extent, familiar with his theories, Einstein was brilliant. I should say though that there are probably many such brilliant people around. It’s just that he followed his vision.To give a slanted take – It’s all relative. To the average person he was a genius but to someone of…[Read more]

  • I don’t know but one thing I do know is that they come back in again if they can. I remember some time years ago putting one outside. It had a missing leg so I recognised it easily. A couple of hours after I had put it outside I found it had come back in again. The only time I put them out now is when they cause a nuisance, which is almost…[Read more]

  • It must be a horrible position to be in as, like many, it is something I think about from time to time. I was on the jury at a rape trial. It was not easy as emotions ran high, but luckily my fellow jurors were good and we could discuss impartially.

    I was not keen on ‘Alien’ as it was so dark. If there is one thing I don’t like about some modern…[Read more]

  • I suggest a credit card too but be very careful. With mine the balance is paid off each month so it is really pretty much of a free service. It would be too easy for someone on a low income to be caught out though and slide into debt. At that point the vultures gather and life becomes a bottomless pit! Multiple accounts also work but it is harder…[Read more]
