I read KT as Katie, it's what we call my sister sometimes.

Mind you, if they paid me enough........

See original post

 Funnily enough KT was also my nickname at work (not at school perhaps surprisingly) which confused no end of people

When I said her dress was trending, I wasn't meaning it as approval of the dress.  Various comments such as dressing in the dark would apply more😂

Apparently Tess's dress is trending on Twitter.  People asking the same question as I did when she appeared last night "Why has Tess got her head through the arm hole?".  It seems that each week her dresses get more and more bizzare.  It's like the 'Kings New Clothes'.  She's told they're wonderful and she doesn't want to seem even more stupid by disagreeing.

Crikey! I thought "I" was crazy😵

If the owners of the cafe did ban anybody from entering who was carrying or wearing anything which originated from animals I would have some respect for them.  I very much doubt they do, so it seems to be more a case of getting publicity than actually occupying the moral high ground.

Mobile Phones.

Posted: 03/12/2016 at 13:40

I do have a 'smart phone' and agree that it is a computer rather than a phone and has far more functionality.  That said, for me there is absolutely no excuse for people having their eyes glued to one when they are out with other people.  My nephew's thankfully now ex-girlfriend was one of the worst I've come across.  She came round to us for Christmas dinner one year and as long as the conversation was based around her she chatted away quite happily.  Immediately the conversation moved to something else she was straight onto her phone.  By immediately I literally mean within less than a minute.  That is simply downright rude.

I also don't agree with having mobile phones switched on at work, unless it's necessary for the job.  The world functioned perfectly well before they were invented.  The normal response is along the lines of "What if the school needs to get hold of me".  The simple solution is to have a central number to contact, or the landline number for the desk the person works at.  That, at a stroke, would stop those who do spend half their life seemingly on the d**** things texting!

When one guy left our office the manager even joked in his leaving speech about having told the individual many times to stop using their phone at work, but having been ignored.  If you have managers, and staff, like that there really is no hope.

PS.  Regarding the current spat going on in this thread, there are people who will deliberately go out of their way to find fault with others and then act the innocent when picked up on it.  Before anybody comes back asking if I refer to them I'll pre-empt it by saying if you think the cap fits then wear it.

On the basis of previous performances I would be surprised if Judge Rinder isn't in the dance-off.  He's a decent dancer but not on the same level as the others.  I suspect the other will be either Ore or Claudia but so long as they perform to their best either one should survive one more week.

I would advise contacting you local council pest control people.  If they don't undertake the work themselves they should be able to point you in the direction of a reputable contractor.  You certainly don't want to live with it any longer then necessary.  Rats and mice apparently love electrical cables!

I spotted a fox sunning itself in my neighbours garden on Tuesday afternoon.  It looked a bit mangey when it moved away.  It was obviously determined to find a sunny spot because it must have climbed over at least 4 or 5 timber fences to get there.

Healthy Eating

I agree with Hortico's philosophy, I simply work on the basis of all things in moderation.  About the only thing I won't eat is duck eggs, and that's because I'm allergic to them.  If I want to stuff a cream cake in my face I will do, along with the occasional bacon butty (not generally both at the same time).  I can't remember the last time we had anything deep fried at home, but I do have chips when I'm out.
