Morning all. Well done Daisy.
GG, is that correct language for a lady to use. No point in putting lots of .... as we all know what you mean.
Will be thinking of you Andy and hope also that you are OK for Sunday.
I'm not going to mention how many years ago I took exams. I was at school where you got a second bite at the cherry, in that if you didn't pass your 11+ you had another go at 13, which I passed and went to a technical school. I was given the choice by my parents not to move but I wanted to go (bit of a snob) on the condition I could leave at 16. School leaving age was 15 in those days. This meant that I took no 'O' or ' 'A' levels as they were then. My last report said I would find it difficult to obtain a job. Huh, what did they know. Not once did any would be employer ask for any certificates, etc. How times have changed.
I feel sorry for the 'kids' these days being brainwashed into thinking it's the end of the world if they don't get the right grades. Talk about knock them down before they get started. No doubt some of you think I'm talking a load of twaddle - sorry about that.
Change of subject - some years ago thought I would put myself forward to help in local hospital's stroke unit. Whilst my sons were having physio, I used to sit with a stroke victim, reminded me so much of my Dad, and 'help' him do mosaic to get his hand working again. Used to get told off. One day, he started crying (know depression is a side effect of strokes) because his wife was going on holiday for 3 weeks and she wouldn't be visiting. Well, it affected me so much I had to be taken into a room to compose myself. Realised then that it wasn't the place for me as I wouldn't be able to detach myself from the patients. I do admire those that do so.
Got verbal diarrhoea this morning.
Hi NickyB and welcome.
