I will confess that in order to show him whose boss I have been known to eat the stolen pizza slice dog spit and all!

Currently watching the bake off (on plus one). I'm not sure if I enjoy watching it or not.

OH is out with work mates tonight. They were meant to be eating at 19:30 and on the 22:00 train home. Their food has only just arrived. I get the feeling I'll be making another trip in to Sheffield to collect him - so who thinks I should pull on my snazziest of Pjams to really impress his mates? ;)

The dog knows that if I go to bed before OH gets home doggy can sleep on the bed and won't get kicked out of the bedroom. Unfortunately this means he's started to take himself to bed long before I have any intention of settling down in the hope of securing his place amongst the pillows. Dogs aren't daft!

See original post

 Quite a lot of our staff and most of our volunteers qualify for the service they offer!

Want a giggle? You may be aware of my working with the Royal Voluntary Service: a charity that enriches the lives of older people and their families.

Many of our services are age specific.

So when are you old enough to need your old age enriching? Well around here it's the day you celebrate your fiftieth birthday.

Plant P: I do insist on substanical undies to keep the awesomeness confined! Can't be doing with those cheese wire things...

Something has been poking around in the greenhouse and knocked all of my pots over: when it warms up a little I have a fun job of cleaning up.

I have nothing to add to this thread. 

As someone with communication difficulties I tend not to worry about whether I have pronounced the word right - rather have I used the right worm with the yoghurt pot yellow.

But I am going to post solely to pip this back up the forum 'latest' list for anyone who has missed the merriment earlier. :)

Keep up the mischief chums.

Morning all.

Punk: remember we're here for you whatever you're feeling right now. I won't pretend to know or even try to guess.

The weeks holiday is over: partner returns to work today leaving me my Monday off for chores as normal. The weekend didn't go as planned and to be truthful has left me more tired (mentally; his family is very draining) than when we started. I'm not the only one struggling: the dog hasn't moved since bedtime and seems incapable of even looking up and my partner wasn't much better!

Pat: one of my major chores today Is the washing basket. You know I'm sure even if we spent the week in just our pants that thing would still be full. I don't even know how we use so much stuff; hoping we both get the dry weather (I'll not have the minus temperatures though it's that's okay with you).
