Here's somewhere to post your good news: got a promotion or a PB? Off on holiday? Handsome stranger on the train made your commute a bit more bearable? Share it with the Forum - I'll start:

I spent a fascinating day working with medieval human remains then went out for  a lovely dinner with lovely friends and had and an interesting conversaton about and the legal system which was far more stimulating than the one about "Neighbours" that I had to put up with on my last evening out. 

Oh and tomorrow's Saturday image



  • Great idea Screamy.

    I'm sitting here after a really stressful week drinking Aspall's cider with blackberry liqueur and nibbling Waitrose organic Swiss chocolate.  I got a free foot treatment in Lush earlier today and am currently sniffing one of their delicious massage bars. 

    Oh and I'm still excited about the purchase of my first flat which I moved into 2 months ago and the beautiful woods I can see from my lounge window. image

  • And I thought you two were NICE! Audi drivers are the work of the devil! image
  • I wake up everyday grateful to be with someone who I love very much & who loves me back the same amount. I'm also grateful that we have such a lovely roof over our heads & can put food on the table.

    It's the start of the weekend!

    And no matter how shit things are at work, I'm off to Paris in a week for a long awaited break.
    1. Someone has been mucking me around lately, so I told them where to get off.  Didn't want to, but it had to be said. 
    2. Running is back on the cards, short distances only, but I can see a slight improvement and HRs are now back to normal.  Never again, please.  Thank you.

    And if you could just arrange things so that I could get one of the jobs that I'm applying for . . .

    . . . then I could come back and post again.image
