Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

My son makes those...and loves them. He also makes Tacos. He has made them for years and tries to chase me for a big garlicky hug afterward and breathe on me. Very cruel. He has to catch me first! The next morning ( when he stank of Garlic) I would beg him to go and have a shower and use lots of soa...

Re: HOUSEHOLD TIPS NOT FOUND IN WOMAN'S WEEKLY

Our security doors are always locked even though our solid doors are always open to catch a breeze.
Mind you, we have nothing worth stealing!

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Done something to my darn knee...goodness knows what. I'm fine on the flat but it hurts to put any weight on it when it is bent. I found myself saying "ouch" every time I had to go up and down stairs today. Hopefully it is a fleeting problem!

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I can assure you Stanley, that a Malignant Melanoma is far worse than bladder cancer! ( Pancreatic Cancer is far worse too!)
Good he is doing so well though...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Well we are still in bright sunshine and 36C at 6.45 pm. Ceiling fans on...feet on the coffee table...cool drinks ( watching Corrie)
No bedding needed tonight.
I've drunk that much water today my tummy is making sloshing noises when I walk!

It certainly pays not to clean your windows too far out from Christmas!, 39C here today and new(ish) neighbour has diggers and machinery in both front and back yards, doing landscaping. There has been much scraping and moving dirt about, and soil and rock delivery. Dust everywhere. We have the windo...

Re: LIGHTS IN THE SKY 2013

We have told the "kids" we are doing our own thing at Christmas too. We have 2 family birthdays on 29th ( both big ones) so will call back through town on that day and celebrate the birthdays. Not trying to upset anyone - it just gets too hard to please everyone on Christmas Day ( and we find oursel...

:laugh5: well we don't break any land speed records either (!) but they still banned the walks. Had to drive the car up to the front door of the hospital that time, as he wasn't allowed to walk the 100 metres to where I was parked, even though I was carrying all his stuff.

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Just something to keep in mind Stanley, in regard to Jack. Dave wasn't allowed to lift anything or go for our regular walk for a week after coming home from his bladder wall biopsy. I'm just letting you know this, as I know how you both love your walks. So you may have to make arrangements for Jack'...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

That makes sense, Stanley. So I take it they will hold off the Bcg until after your biopsy site has healed? ( I don't think they can give it at the time of biopsy?). Hopefully the pathology will be good and negate the need for the Bcg. Fingers crossed anyway. Dave had the biopsy and irrigation. Luck...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Things are much more relaxed in our van. I clean it before every trip. Everything has a place and we need to maintain a sense of some order. This means a five minute tidy up every morning, but otherwise we just relax. It is nice. I tend to gather a pile of books and bits and bobs on my bed..the news...

My problem is, that hubby designs homes and display homes. So he is used to wandering about in beautifully pristine spaces. ( and me with my slight OCD...well...you can guess the rest!) But I do enjoy other people's mess. I love going to my son's and seeing the couch with the shape of the dog's body...

My whole Cauliflower was gone in three nights due to visitors, so won't have any more until next shop. My Pumpkin and Carrots disappeared too. I still have Broccoli, Spinach, Zucchinis and loads of Salad items ( plus frozen baby peas) so we won't starve before next shop. Amazing the amount younger f...

I thought that if you drank too much, you saw pink elephants - not Easter Bunny or Father Christmas. But I'm not going to test the theory!

I certainly do! Hubby and I do a weekly shop together and don't go near the shops again. I do all the cooking and cleaning,washing (but he is still working). We do evening dishes together.

No actually Tiz...I was a late starter....never drank in my teens or early twenties. ( didn't even drink at my first wedding) Never drank a drop while pregnant or breastfeeding. Never bothered while having to get up to a screaming toddler at night. Didn't drink a red until I was in my 30s actually. ...

Re: LIGHTS IN THE SKY 2013

Wish I could sit and have a wee glass of Red with you, and we could greet him together as he pops down the chimney, Wendy. We will sit silently and just watch him do his stuff. We won't say a word to anyone in the morning ( wink). Our secret.
