• To some extent I do but mine are light anyway so I don’t have to do too much. They tend to grow thickly which I don’t like but I am not one for too thin either.

  • I don’t see a problem if you are discreet Kitty. I know it is early and much quieter when I do my supermarket shopping but I use the same till operators most weeks and have formed a bit of a friendship with them. Don’t forget that these people see an endless stream of people and it can become routine. It is nice to brighten his day with some form…[Read more]

  • I have some ‘Hotter’ shoes too Kitty. I prefer to wear well made shoes like those or ‘Padders’ or ‘Pavers’ or similar. I often wear leggings. I wear a short skirt or dress over them though for modesty.

  • My loft is nearly empty now. Is a traditional loft for here and just used for storage but required a stepladder ccess. Most things are now moved into the house now that the kids have left and there is more space. It waas too much of a risk climbing about as the loftspace is of more modern construction with beams all over the place.  It has…[Read more]

  • People keep recommending it to me but for one reason or another I have never seen it. I will try!

  • I am doing quite a bit of sorting at the moment too Kitty. The new gardening year is upon us am I am sorting out the greenhouse and planters for the things I have already planted seeds for. The seeds mean a change of organisation in the house as, in the day, clothes are dried on top of the storage heaters. In the evening I put my seed trays on top…[Read more]

  • I tend to be a little different and used to regard myself as a (accidental) trend setter lol. I like to look good too but tend to fail if I try to follow other ideas. I think about what I feel looks good for me but do have to be careful as I can overstate and often wear, for example, shorter skirts that some would say are too young for me. I love…[Read more]

  • You are both travelled more worldwide than me lol. I have only been to Majorca and Southern Ireland. I have been to lots more areas in the UK though as I have, I think, been to and mostly toured around every county in the UK except Cornwall, and most of North Wales and The Glasgow area and Stirling in Scotland. I am not one for cities much so I…[Read more]

  • I sometimes catch the train to Newark (here in the Uk though as it is not far and is a nice town with good riverside walks) , but New York would be a bigger problem as there is no station and I am not sure how the bus service is lol.  It is a tiny place that I have often passed through and used to visit a patient there:  h…[Read more]

  • I like to use public transport when on holiday as it usually means a long drive to get there which leaves me fed up of the car. It’s a good way of getting a feel of life locally and can be easier, particularly now roads are very crowded and differing local restrictions for cars are in force. Most places have tourist tickets which cover a set…[Read more]

  • It’s good that you are able to chat like that Kitty. Many places are a bit cut throat and one would take a big risk being too open. With my many years in the NHS I found things went from being able to be reasonably open about things to having to cover your back with almost any move, and the ‘Whistle Blowing policy’ was not worth the paper it was…[Read more]

    I think I am quite similar Cassandra and, I think have mentioned I walk to suppress depression. I used to look forward to bright sunny Januaries which we no longer have.  At least the days are getting longer now.

  • I have always found it difficult to tell who is really thinking what and who has said what in these situations. My approach would be to treat situations calmly and be more of an observer at your next meeting(s). See if you can get a feel for what is wrong without raising any kind of issue about it. Relationships are complex, especially so if more…[Read more]

  • I think they got upset one time we were buying a new car. The kids wandered off and were playing in one of their showroom models while we were discussing terms. They did not want to get too heavy handed in case we pulled out but they were not damaging anything and were safely out of the way so I was not going to get sidetracked. Because of this…[Read more]

  • I am glad your dog is Ok Cassandra.


  • 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]
