Joyce: saw your "rant" on another thread: your friend sounds like a complete brain dead arse of a soggy biscuit dunking numpty, unfortunately they are amazingly common. People don't stop to think how brilliant helping someone else out, especially when
a) they ask
b) it is a really simple task
makes them feel. Its a proper little ego booster. Or at least I think so.
Seriously its like giving blood: a little prick, twenty minutes, a free tea and biscuit, and you get to spend the rest of the day feeling all warm and smug inside. I used to tell myself that my giving blood meant I didn't need to feel bad when once again I refused to let a BMW driver out of a junction.
What an angel your neighbour is though. Make sure they know that their fame has reached Yorkshire and our flat caps have been taken off to them (promptly put back on again though: grim up here!)
I'm still at work. I've sent messages to my mum, my aunt, I'm even contemplating doing an online order from Tescos to restock the cupboards. Don't really need that much but at least its something to do. Fortunately I am too tight to pay for delivery.
Right: time to run up and down the stairs a few times to warm up...
