working at it slowly



  • What a pain JFF.

    I'm ceam knackered so will chill over a nice dinner with HL.  She's gone on a short job and I'll walk the dog (via the pub)

    My cunning plan is on hold, before I could float it past her, we agreed that we need a new central heating boiler.  It's a tragic irony that a new one of them is about the same price as two round  the world tickets.

    It's a conspiracy.

    Awww, what a shame, Noggy image. You will know it was the right decision when you are all toasty and warm in the winter though!

    long story ... moral is, don't tidy the attic ...

    And, no, I'm not reading back! 

    Right, off to right reports

    Eeek! 228 unread mail messages! image (on thunderbird - another 90 odd on Yahoo, but they are mostly junk/circulars etc)
  • SpenceSpence ✭✭✭

    Is the kettle on !?

    I'm bushed!

    We've had a fab trip, come home with the same amount of children we left with, which is always good!!image

    woo hoo Far Far 3rd fastest old biddie imageimageimageimage

    Well done Sue on being a brill teacher,can you come over and do a bit of home tution?

    I work with 3 lovely teachers (a pair job share) One is going off to have a new hip; she had the other one done a couple of years ago, and another has been off since half term as her boy (12) was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes image they are really struggling getting him stable image and you know what's ironic, he passed to go to a really good grammar school in Brum,. very academic boy and I remember thinking at the time, ahh secondary school is going to be tough for my lad he isn't academic (he's fab in lots of ways & I love him to bits, but you know what I mean) but now, well, health is by far the most important thing...

    Daught & friend have just run 5k, with me on the bike and DD running along side, I've never heard so much moaning in all my life!!! At least my moaning doesn't start till the 18 mile mark !! image

  • SpenceSpence ✭✭✭

    *waves* to Pippi, I was wondering where you were, thought you were locked in a stock cupboard somewhere!!

  • Pippi LSPippi LS ✭✭✭
    Well, I have been on hollibobs! - Lake district (60 miles walked! and sunny! - bumped into best freind's sister walking next to Derwentwater!), Lincoln to bring home a carload of Pippette's stuff, Chester for dinner, B&B and pampering (body polish, massage, facial) with 8 colleagues - we got told off for being too noisy at 20 to 10!!! and we weren't even noisy! image then Southwell Folk Festival this weekend. Freezing and rainy on Sunday - Tshirt, 2 fleeces, padded bodywarmer and waterproof just about kept the cold at bay, and if I'd taken thermal long johns they'd have been on too!!!!!!!!!
  • Evening all

    I am back at the crime face and only had 97 emails to deal with ...   image

    I think I read back in a previous life but retained little, I have to say that summer waited until I was back to make a reappearance !
  • Can you not have a holiday again then Meldy  image

    Pippi - that'll teach you to clean the attic image

    Home time and there is a huuuuuuuuuuge pile of ironing waiting for me  image

  • welcome home Pipps image

    hey guess what? I'm home! this is really early for me image

  • Blimey Farty pants .. and its still daylight and everythnig !!

    Spoken to Landlady today and she has another person interested in the downstairs flat (dont know wha happened with the young man and the greyhound) ... anyway, apparently this lady is a fitness instructor.
    How long before I can get her signed up to do a Tri then??    image
  • LOL Meldy - still prefer the idea of the young man and the houndie though!

    I have survived the day and have come home with minor hobbling only rather than "great big drama queen hobbling" of yesterday so fingers crossed can get through tomorrow too - have now missed 2 days' training having done 2 great days prior - shows that training is bad for you image

    Off to fish the ice pack out of the freezer - laters image

  • A strange day in Nogworld.

    Firstly, the hapless boy James was in his usual PITA mode.  I got home, walked the dog and bumped into Ex Para mate (one of the Mets finest now)  he was with his stepson who lost his lower leg in Afghanistan. Had a beer and put the world to rights. 

    Got home to find HL on the phone talking to FIL.  MIL has got colon cancer.  She is 84 and not been well forever.  Still a bit of a shocker though.  I would imagine medical options are limited.

  • Strange old day Noggs .....  Is Mrs Noggs ok?

  • SpenceSpence ✭✭✭
    ahh Noggs, love to(((( Mrs Noggs))))
  • Nearly home time for me .... nighties all   image
  • SlugstaSlugsta ✭✭✭

    Welcome back, Pippi, I thought for a moment that you were saying you had been in the attic all this time ...

    (((Noggy and HL))), this kind of news is always a facer, however old the person concerned.

    Praps your landlady told the young man with the hound about you, Meldy image.

  • Hi all

    I'd just like to add that today i have FINALLY managed to run my first 5k in a time of  39mins 55secs, am well pleased but bloody well knackered to !  Not bad going for saying i'd spent the last 9hrs on my feet, i can trully say i will sleep well tonight !  my knees ache though so am going to have some ibuprohen

    (((((Noggs family))))))))) sad news image

    Can your boiler wait til next year??

    Meldy - you want to be careful that new neighbour doesn't get *you* signed up for anything... image

    Welcome Nikki! Well done! Work at it slowly girl, don't try and do exactly the same every time you go out it's a recipe for disaster! And plenty of rest!

    Nice to see you Pippi image

    long day, tired now, just going to jump in the shower (I'll thank myself in the morning, really I will!). Work away day tomorrow image Absolutely NO work, a photography competition in the morning (which I invented image), quiz at lunchtime (which I compiled), and treasure hunt in the afternoon (er, yep, that was me too, plus someone else).

    That's what you get for having one good idea. I guess that's why everyone else kept their heads down!

    Sad news Nogs

     Can I ask  for vibes for tomorrow please - all the specialist  nurse posts at my trust are being reviewed - external  people from another trust. So having completed a 12 page questionnaire, and kept a 2 week  diary I now have to spend an hour being grilled and justifying my existence.

    Think down grading is definitely on the cards, hopefully not redundancies but who knows.

    I did not come into  nursing for this.

  • Morning All

    I am soooooooooo not a fan of early mornings............ image

    But if I'm up the so shall you lot be................... image

    <clumps round WAISTer kitchen putting coffee etc on noisily>

  • SpenceSpence ✭✭✭



    Am I missing something? How can people just be 'down graded?' If they have been doing the job and are qualified!? Makes no sense to me at all .

  • XBXB ✭✭✭


    Isn't it the job that gets down-graded not the person? It's all a mystery to me. Good luck for today Amanda.

    Work for me today.

  • DLDL ✭✭✭



    (((((anyone else)))))

    ~~~~~~~vibes for amandax~~~~~~~~~~~~

    off on work away day today image Anyone fancy joining us for a jolly??
  • morning

    just back from RPM class, it was hot and sticky, but I must say I enjoyed it

     I'd love to come Daffs, but no can do, I have a work day, job 2

  • SlugstaSlugsta ✭✭✭

    Morning all,

    Have a great day, Daffy, it sounds as if you have earned it.

    ~~~~~Amandax~~~~~ fingers crossed too!

    Yumms, we are cruising round the coast of Great Britain. Unfortunatey, I have just heard that our proposed meet up with OSN is a no-goer because the family have plans for Fathers Day. Perfectly understandable, but disappointing all the same. I also presume that, given recent events, we will not be able to meet up with Westie either image.

    Just the 'last minute' stuff to do here - change the sheets, empty the bins, leave a note for the neighbour, get showered and dressed ...

    Will be thinking of you all and will wave as we sail past.

    (((((WIN))))) and some ~~~~~

    WAIST well xxxxxxx

  • Bon Voyage Sluggie, wish I was there image
