      Evening everyone. How is the work going JC? Bet you will be glad to see it finished. Hope you ok Starty? Hi Mary, Bridget, Satz and everyone else. Busy day and trying to keep on top of the housework when I come home in the evening. Definitely prefer my 2 day working week.

      Quite here today.
      The bathroom is nearly finished. Just the flooring to finish and the man that can is going try and make a couple of shelves with the leftovers. His work has been amazing. Helps he's well over 6 feet tall and very Viking-like. Easy on the eye of a bored housewife.

      @satz123.........your tale about the SIL brought one of those internal shame shudders. I remember years ago being in Spain and waiting for the airport transfer from the hotel. I had two miniature bottles of vodka in my bag and kept nipping of to the toilet to chug one down to stop the shakes until 'accepted' drinking at the airport. What a way to live.......

      @starty....will be thinking about you tomorrow.
      It could be worse, I could be filing.

      Yep, I can relate the the SIL obsession and the lengths required to conceal the bursting urge to down a drink. Preferably in private. Then plot a plan to ensure an ample supply for the rest of the evening, while appearing perfectly normal, 'sure dont most people do this!' yea, right.
      SIL can have the big gaff and the perfect kids, wouldn't swap her world for anything.

      Morning,
      @satz123......should have said this the other day........Comóradh sásta..............look at me bilingual

      The Viking should be finished by lunchtime. Mind you, there's only so much you can go with wet wipes. I am so looking forward to a shower. My hair is like straw.

      Back later.

      Re: July Army Thread 2019

      God that was a quick bathroom renovation. Mine once took 5 weeks. With young children. In the middle of Winter. No vikings to look at.
      After a meeting with two of the imperious leaders this afternoon I have recalibrated my definition of stupidity. I can't even be arsed telling you all about it, it's so gormless. I do so wish that there'd been a secret camera though. I'd like Karl Pilkington to do the voiceover on the footage, please. "An Idiot in the Boardroom"

      One more day before I shut the door and swallow the key for the weekend.
      If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

      Evening all.

      Ha Bridget, love it. Think there should be a lot of key swallowing. Beautiful day here again, pain being inside all day but got out in the garden when I got home for a while. Need to get some food now, back in a bit.

      Oh bridgey do tell about your half wit boss.

      Went back to see about eye today. Not yet fully healed so still cannot drive but needed to get back to the workhouse as it is my last week. Mr S gave me a lift and one of the blokes dropped me back. Everyone is being so kind and I even had a mail from my boss saying how pleased he was that I was back and how much I was missed!!!! I was only gone for 4 days Anyhoo optician wants to refer me to hospital as they are worried I might have another issue with my cornea so that is a bummer. Hoping it is just the abrasion but just as well to get it checked out. A lovely neighbour popped round tonight with chair risers and a contraption to help me get my leg into bed as apparently that is a thing when the hip is done

      My bathroom also took an age but we also had tiling done I think. Couple of hairy arse builders who did not look viking like at all as I recall.

      Re: July Army Thread 2019

      Morning,
      @starty............I'd forgotten all about hoisting your legs into bed. The physio taught Mr JC to use his dressing gown cord.
      You know, I'm not sure I could wear contacts to start with.......the optician just about chases me around the room to do that puff of air thing.
      @byebyebridgetjones...........he just needed to take the bath out and put this shower in. And the new flooring and a bit of tiling. They were here at 7:30am and left about 4:30pm and apart from half an hour (if that) lunch break just never stopped.

      @IamMary...........Táim ag déanamh iarracht.........with the help of google translate

      @rustop59.........another one key swallowing here. Going to run round like a loon today and tomorrow so I can kick back all weekend. DVDs to be watched will include.......West Side Story, Wuthering Heights (original), Minions, Blithe Spirit. Might squeeze in a Die Hard.
      Good news the decorator is back to us next Thursday............he's not Viking like unfortunately but I don't have to go next door to use their facilities.

      Mr JC beyond excited about his wee trip to Spain........he's bought new sunscreen.
      It could be worse, I could be filing.
