      Re: December Army Manoevres

      Evening all. Yea Bridget, any brownies going good advice there RC from JC. It’s no wonder so many feel bleh this time of year, short dark days and the pressure of all the social occasions. I pretty much do what suits me any more. Lunches out, about one a week. Going to a concert this Friday I’ll do one party night but am driving. Signed up yesterday for sunrise hike New Year’s Day. Have wanted to do it for a while but am usually chauffeuring NY Eve. Know they are not around this year so put my name down. Depends on the roads really. Are you still running Mary? Better say good night, I’m a celebrity is coming on.

      So himself comes home last night after a party, falling around, couldnt manage the key so the doorbell was rung at 2am!! I was like a demon and couldnt get back to sleep for at least an hour. Cross and cranky today but I took a lot of pleasure in the fact that he was very hungover.
      Id forgotten how much this silly season serves as a reminder of how far we have all come.. Why was it ever attractive!

      Re: December Army Manoevres

      Good morning Army!!

      The sun is starting to come out and I think it's going to be a beautiful day after all. Was rainy and coolish when I got up but now I can see them blue skies!!

      @RunningCourage - sorry to hear you are down. You know - a lot of things have been going on in your life lately - your Mom falling, that incident at the school with the foster child, your ED and of course the AL issue. Also, I assume there was a big build-up to your play and perhaps that let-down after it's all over. It seems that a lot of things happened in a very short period of time. And again, the holiday season is not always the best time for a lot of people. I personally look forward to when the hullabaloo is all over with. It's been way too commercial for many, many years now. As far as you getting back on track, I can only agree with what the others said and especially Mary's mention of running. From what I understand, running is a great psychological boost to those who do it regularly and perhaps that is one of the things missing in your life right now. Hope you can get things turned around.

      @byebyebridgetjones - so sorry to hear about your family member. IMVHO - your reaction was the most natural one for an alkie - blot it all out with AL, drown your worries, whatever else they say. The biggest problem is that AL is a temporary "solution", as you well know. Good for you for getting a hold on things and back to your AF life. Now as for the brownies - I just learned yesterday that there is a new chain of stores opening in Athens that have marywanna based products - flour, etc. The person who told me said that the percentage of pot in the products is limited to something like 5 or 10% so not enough to get you stoned. I was wondering how many folk will make their own brownies with that kind of flour and eat the whole damn pan!! Actually, I was gobsmacked that they are allowed to sell those kind of products in this country. It's not like I live in Holland or something.

      @JackieClaire - glad you're putting off the rest of the home renovations til the end of January. Okay - I get the plasterer - the decorator - what will he/she do? I have really enjoyed getting my apartment the way I want it over the past months. Just one thing at a time but really enjoying it. The new bed is up and ready for visitors. Waiting for you or @byebyebridgetjones or @satz1234 or anyone else who fancies a visit to Greece! @IamMary or @RunningCourage - you might want to consider the Athen Marathon next year - they run right through my small town!!

      Thanks for asking, Jackie. He went home on Tuesday, back at his fruit market yesterday and early this morning when we talked he was on his way to pick up produce for the store. Not that I think he should be but he is a very determined person. He still limps a lot, has no feeling in his left foot and above his right eyebrow but he's back in the saddle as best he can be! I have a bad cold still and finally decided to get something for it. Actually thought of going to the hosiope for chest x-rays to make sure I don't have pneumonia since I woke up with a very heavy chest today but decided it's just phlegm and stuff that need to get cleared out so got a syrup instead. No sugar, no AL so we okay there!

      Youngest grandson - Alvertos - turns 2 today. He's the biological son of my younger son (they have an older boy (8) from his wife's first marriage. We - Mr. Stirly and I are not invited to the party at their house because she doesn't want us in her home. (according to her, I am to blame for her milk drying up and not being able to nurse Alvertos longer than 6 weeks. So they will have a cake and Alvertos' parents, his brother and his other grandparents will be there. In October, his Mom spent between 800 and 1000 euro for birthday celebrations for the older boy - they went on for three days. But that's okay - younger son's new apartment is already for him to move into as soon as the divorce papers are signed so we're going to have a smash-up party there on Saturday!

      @satz123 - glad to hear that Rosie is getting her full share of spoiling. That's what little girl doggies should get. She really is adorable. Sincerely wish I could have one like her but I'm away from home too many hours a day. Would be a delight to have a doggie like her greet me when I get home from work!! And the walking is one thing I greatly miss since we lost our Freddie.

      Troopers - off to answer some e-mails and maybe get back later. Our new (6 months already) co-worker (employee) has not shown up today due to a slight cold. Poor fellow. Grrr. I should have stayed home both yesterday and today with my cold and he takes the day off for a sniffle.

      Wishing you all a great day! Make it the best you can!!!!

      Re: December Army Manoevres

      Morning,
      @stirly-girly.........how ridiculous about blaming you for drying up. I didn't feed either Jenny or the S&H through choice. Luckily over 30 years ago now but these days I'd have been villified. There were a few in a mother's group I joined that didn't go past six weeks. She was just looking for a whipping boy to blame.
      And listen two parties are far better than one.
      The money spent these days has gone far past the bouncy castle and pass the parcel. My cousin told me one of other the mother's at the private school her kids go to hired a ferris wheel for the garden for her 10 year old.......my cousin's married to a surgeon and is fairly well off and her eyeballs nearly popped out.
      Keep an eye on what you're coughing up (delightful subject).....a wee course of antibiotics might be needed.........but this time next week it'll prolly be over.

      Free fruit and veg, eh??? another bonus Glad he's feeling better though.

      Pa-in-law is not well. They had to swallow some pride and ask Mr JC to take them some bread and milk. Pa-in-law finally rang the doctor and got a home visit. They've up the meds and to their horror a home nurse is coming round to help him dress today. Its all very worrying.
      It could be worse, I could be filing.

      Re: December Army Manoevres

      Jackie dear, it is very worrying when our folks get older. We went through it with my MIL. She wanted to remain independent long after she was really able to care for herself. A thrombosis in her leg and the resulting operation were what it took for her to finally be put into special care. It was hard for all of us at first but we knew it was the safest place for her to be. Hope your Pa-in-Law is feeling better soon....

      Finally gave in and went to the pharmacy next door for some syrup that's supposed to "break things up". Hopefully I will have a lighter chest tomorrow. Younger son is out at the m moment but should be back in a while and I'm heading for home when he gets here. I've never taken a day off sick but I got to the point earlier that I couldn't talk because I was coughing so much. Not nice for the customers.

      Special friend can keep his fruit and veggies - I just want his body!!!

      @stirly-girly.......you go girl.

      Just had a peep on FB. Don't know if you remember about the man I knew from work that ended up living with the ducks in the park .........he showed me the ropes when I started volunteering and is very dear to me........he's celebrating two years sober today.He's gone from a down and out to a student, part-time barista, gives great hugs, volunteers. He's not a saint he can be a rright bugger at times but I'm so proud of him.
