      Hardly any internet (bliss) from bonnie Scotland. Big waves and hugs.
      It could be worse, I could be filing.

      Wave @JackieClaire!

      Hospital last night and again this am. Son somehow managed to slice off the top of his finger and obviously break the bone, on one of those outdoor exercise machines. Can not fault our hospitals on his occasion - although I believe amputations skip the queue
      Plastic surgeon put it all back together again, after an interesting few hours of panic, blood and pain. Its his 'gesture' finger, so hes very proud of its current enormous wrapped up size

      I got the call about 8.30, well after Wine O'Clock. How glad am I that I could hop into the car without a thought of not being able to drive or worse (but possible), leaving my wine behind!

      Bridge - have you made a decision on the wedding yet??

      Jesus the trauma Mers you must have been up the wall
      Ah poor lad - but sounds like he's making the best of it - pity he couldn't miss school too

      And another reason to clock up why we don't drink any more & is the best decision we've ever made. And just how wonderful we are to have done it with just the support of our friends on here.
      I think we are just marvellous

      Re: August Army Thread 2019

      We are just marvellous actually.

      Big wave to JC up there in kilt country. Hope the winds aren't blowing all the lads frocks up too much.

      God Satz, this lot will declare an event every time the wind changes. Yesterday it was somebody's 50th birthday and of course they were off like a bride's nightie again. The birthday girl looked as pissed off AF about it and when the fun brigade shouted for a speech she said 'you can bugger off I don't feel like it'. She will be my new friend. Stupid joiners. Exhausting, they are.

      Good Lord Mary. The poor kid! Good story for him though. He can grow it over the years too. By the time he's 21 he'll convince everyone that the machine ripped his hand fair off.
      Not going to the wedding, Mary. Going to call her on Sunday. She'll be trolleyed though so I'll follow up with a text. Going to potter for a week and do whatever I want to. Possibly nail the doors shut and put planks of timber over the windows. Possible guard dog. Possible security bloke.

      Dog says it's time for bed so I better go or I'll be for it.
      If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

      Good call Bridge, bet your relieved now, making your mind up is the hardest part.
      Security is important for these solitary days, you should consider biometric access to the house, and of course, always wear sunglasses and a baseball cap, even when your in bed.

      I agree Satz, we are bloody marvelous.
      There is a big hump to climb over at the beginning, changing your mindset, managing the cravings... and it takes constant maintenance, but its so worth it.

      Young fella hoping for a good scar but hes missing out on a bit scout trip. Ah well. Of course everyone has a finger amputation story now. If my stats are correct, 80% of us have had a finger or toe partially amputated . Im not telling him, he wont feel special anymore

      Re: August Army Thread 2019

      No he should definitely feel special about the partial amputation, Mary. Not all of us get a plastic surgeon for ours. He should know that.

      Last night I had one of those periodical drinking dreams that we all have. I cracked under pressure from someone else and had one of those horrid milky drinks that you may as well put a straw in the bottle, like Bailey's etc. They don't even do the job and you put on about 10 kilos per bottle. Very upset with myself when I woke up. Those dreams can be so real! Definitely can not go to that wedding. Too risky at this stage and nothing is taking this one away from me!

      Hope JC is having a lovely time on the lake with Bess and Mr JC. And I hope Black Bess behaved herself whilst dining in.

      Re: August Army Thread 2019

      Is the wedding this weekend Bridge?
      Have you next week off?
      Sickly sweet baileys... Id drink it if I could manage to add a large whiskey into it
      Which of course would be at the latter end of the night. I can almost feel the pain in my eyes from those hangovers.

      Where has @rustop59 gone off to?? And @starty, have you gone back to work already?
      I am up at silly o'clock, hardly worth going to bed now...

      Night X

      Hello, hello, hello.
      Got back about three hours ago. Let's just say the journey was pretty hairy because of the constant rain.
      Here's where we were..........look at the loch-side cottages and we were three along from the main hotel.
      Portsonachan Hotel

      @IamMary...........what a nightmare. I'd have a meltdown if it happened to my little soldier........but he'll be able to embellish his 'war wound' over the years.

      @byebyebridgetjones.............Bess was fine she just stayed for a couple of cocktails and a few canapes then reeled off clubbing with her new pals Winnie (the bulldog), Buddy (puppy Labrador), Fruin (dachsund/terrier cross) and Cooper (retreiver) 'til the wee small hours.

      Just a quick one as I feel a bit sickly, think its the tension from the long drive and the thought of Baileys
      It could be worse, I could be filing.

      Me too (thats why they invented Alt +Tab). Work screen and pinterest screen
      I like your style.
      I have a big kitchen plan but its a long way off because I want to put windows in where there are walls now as well as get all new appliances and units. i am starting to run out of duct tape, but I refuse to upgrade anything until Ive the cash for a major job. If I ever get it done, I will have NOTHING to obsess over!

      Friday night, netflix and magnum, it doesnt get much better
