Well Dove you got more of the "schka" than I did 


Clari......my dreams are probably more important to me than real life sometimes.....I can recall and recite , verbatim, what conversations goes on in them .....my wife , yep the one who studied psychology, is now enthralled by some of the stuff I can just roll out ......mine thankfully tend to be more of the flying variety ......but also frustration when I just cannot step onto a step ......I can lift my foot but just can't make it

 I think your wife would be concerned as to the company you keep if she knew of my dreams.

We're all friends here Dacha: even with your grumpy feet. The written word is hard to translate when you can't see my accent.


I spent all afternoon trying to remember what I needed from the shops. Now I'm home I've remembered 


Very tired after a restless night. I had a horrendous nightmare the night before and it's been on my mind ever since. Proper blood, guts, stiletto heels, and waking up almost vomiting type of nightmare.


You're all making me realise how much I miss the sea, water in general. I love my hills and woods and would happily be that hermit miles from the world around me but there is something special about the sea.


I must try and get a few days away before it gets too cold to paddle. I'm really not prepared for it being October!

Hi all....we had a great day here but stubbed my big toe again.......does anyone have the same problem as me....just hurting your big toe  ....my big toe ...yes the one I broke on Kos .....the one on the left foot just seems to scream out ....hurt me ......


Pat I love your fingers but these ugly toes are well ....just ugly..... my BH has put some iodine lines on them ....she tells me it will help......

 Does iodine glow in the dark to help you remember where your feet are perhaps?


Funny isn't it how when we bash something it seems a target. Have you ever noticed that the moment you slice your finger you get a to do list positively littered with needing to wash your hands repeatedly. Last week I got a blister on my finger and had to do the ward rounds. Alcohol gel both in and out of every ward? I was nearly crying by the end of it

 Sorry Clari ..have I upset you for any reason?


See original 

Of course you haven't. I was merely  curious about the properties of iodine stripes. I didn't think I came across as rise of hostile.

Oh DD I was just thinking of you this morning too. I am glad you're busy. But please remember to stay firm and tell people no occasionally. We don't want you burning out.

Morning all. Busy weekend with meetings, collecting other half from train station (jet lag has hit him worse this time but I think mostly because of the differences in temperature).


BUT he actually brought me gifts this time! (Last time he went, missed my birthday, and brought me back a hotel toothbrush). So I am now the proud owner of a silly purse and a scarf that "must be good as all the women were wearing them".


BL that sounds horrendous! But I can't believe it'll take them a week to send someone out to inspect it. Take plenty of photographs so you can show the assessor because clearly you're going to be trying to do something about the damage before they arrive so they'll not see it at it's worse.


I hope you get a specialist crew in soon to start drying things out. The last thing you want is the damp to creep across plaster.


Do keep safe.

Morning all! Having my last cuddles in bed with just the hound and I; will be collecting partner from the train station tonight. I think we're both making the most of it.


I've a committee meeting today for a club I support so must get up and get my rump in gear to travel across the country. Please be gentle with me M1! It's not going to be an easy meeting so there may be cider going in the fridge in preparation.


Keep safe everyone.

Fireworks season has started early this year  Fortunately far enough away for a dog that ate three days worth of food (a mix of me feeding him bits as i prepared the portions and him sneaking off with 1kg of beef cheek) and so is in a bit of a food induced deep sleep not to really register.
