It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
I particularly like the virtual part of the graffiti.
I think that's brave performing in public like that, even more so considering you're not confident on the guitar. Good luck for tomorrow, I hope it goes well!
It sounds like the neighbour is a creep. Best just to nod and smile in his general direction.
Yes big D, let us know how it's gone?
How's the routine going SOLB? Had breakfast and gone outside? It's sunny here so that means it's sunny everywhere. I've only just had breakfast myself but will be out in an hour or so.
Tis an evening gig at church. Mrs BD is in charge.
So I hope to be able to report later on how it all goes.
I am going to be off line then, till next weekend.
A whole week to wait in suspense?!
Today isn't a write-off SOLB, there's still time to get some good routines in! Like eating, have you eaten today?
The meeting tomorrow won't be fun, but you could make it fun. Wear a mask, repeat things people say, refuse to sit down, listen intently to everything someone says then at the end say "I didn't understand a word of that", insist on calling people by their wrong names...these will all lead you to get sectioned I'm pretty sure, but it'll be fun!
I read someone's blog about how to be a "good patient" or being a bad one, it was really good. It made me remember me mischevious side!
Word /topic bingo is the BEST idea! That's great.
I'm going to use that in every meeting from now on. I won't keep my job but I'll have a damn good time!
I can confirm that SOLB is fabuolous and neighbour is creepy, he appeared when I visited SOLB and scared us both by just being there.
Hope the note does the trick.
Ben-o you are naughty but I like your sense of fun
Well, I feel I ought to visit as I did start to suggest mischevious strategies.
SOLB, why does your neighbour stand near your window? He does sound creepy (or crrepy as I wrote first time).
I'm glad you had a lovely day (I'm not surprised other people think you're fabulous). Family are great and little ones even more so. I have a niece and she is beautiful.
I have time to report now, before I do the unbolting of the kitchen sink so I can pack it (joking I hope)
I got to the church in plenty of time, but the guy on the projector wanted to be able to show how Paul, who was doing London actually did, (5h37m) so I spent a few mins helping him get set up. Which meant that by the time I was set up, I already had an audience to rehearse to. Which actually helped calm my nerves a bit.
When time to perform came I did OK, not great, but OK. some notes needed a bit more oomph than I gave them. Then it was time to put the guitar down and sing. The words were being projected, and congregation joined in which meant I could relax a bit.
A friend of ours who is in a local band had turned up, and he wants to work with me on this and put in a harmonica part. Could be good.
Mrs BD's sermon was awesome! (prodigal son) I was nearly in tears several times. We just keep on screwing up and all God wants is for us to come home. Sniff!
Take care everyone - I must go and pack, now where is that spanner?
Nearly forgot - Hi beebs - waves .
Sounds like it went really well Big D, that's good to hear. And great that you got such good support!
SOLB, your niece is only 4, you've got so much more time ahead of you to be the best aunty! I know you can't make up for the time, but being there in the present is the important thing. I don't see my niece that often (I wish I could see her more) and although I know I'm missing out on her life, there's still plenty of her life I can be involved in. I usually win the best uncle competition by being generally awesome.
By 'eck, an 8 and 2 year old must be a handful! I just don't think I have the patience.
*waves back at Big D*
A friend of mine was telling me in hushed tones how the mother of one of her children's friends had had to be sanctioned for her own safety, it was so hard not to laugh.
The tap at work says SOLO on it but I always read it as SOLB
Haha! Sanctioned is very different, though I suspect it would actually improve your mental health. It'd be cool if someone in a white coat came along and gave people a badge which said "I'm doing great!", instead detaining them.
SOLB has her own range of taps? Impressive.
: by eck that is so sweet,
I told you she was fab, Ben-o.
Recovery centres? That's ridiculous, but unsurprising.
By Eck, you're family sound lovely and your daughter is very wise herself!
I'm glad the meeting went well today SOLB and that you noticed the positives, I'm terrible for that.
