    Re: International Army October 2020

    Late good morning and waves

    We've still got the contents of the airing cupboard that we decided to tidy about three Sundays ago all over the back bedroom. I found towels I'd forgotten I'd bought. Its a work in progress.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Re: International Army October 2020

    Good morning everyone. We should all be millionaires but somehow the money gets spent on something else. Same as the lockdown, no where to go etc but personally I have painted the house from top to bottom, replaced pillows, duvets etc so the money is still being spent. Enjoying the results a lot more than hangovers though.

    Started off raining but cleared up and managed to get out for a nice walk along the river. Back to the garage for the afternoon. The WiFi works out there so listened to my audio book yesterday, Me by Elton John, very interesting.

    Thanks @JackieClaire for reaching out. Yep I'm fine.
    First day of lockdown:
    Mr S went for a pre-op assessment - he has a hip op. on November 14. Runs in his family - they've all had something replaced
    So I had to bring Rosie for a walk - I walked out & left keys inside. @$%^&^% ... but off we went anyway.
    She did a poo on the outward journey and picking it up with a poo bag I stuck my finger in it. Ewwwwww. - and no home to go to.
    On the way back she got stung by a wasp.

    When we eventually got in - my laptop charger wouldn't work & smoke came from the connection.
    Great craic.
    So I had to await a new charger from Amazonland.
    Then I had to work 3 days of the bank holiday & I am FECKED .....

    Then my mother, for the first time in 3 years, today is freaking out that she is in s Nursing Home. She just seems to be more alert & taking everything in.

    Shall I go on ?....................

    'Shit' week @satz123, but its good to see you

    Im glad none of you know where the money is going either. A chunk went off to amazonland I think.

    Watched an excellent mini series called The queen's gambit. Child prodigy chess player, drugs & alcohol addiction, I will say no more...

    Rushing off to the leaba. X

    Morning to the North.
    I thought I'd had a crap day but at least I don't have dog poo on my hands so I'll shut up.

    We have got our busiest time of year on at the moment at work. The entitled genius' are moaning their heads off, everything is late, everyone is miserable, everyone is having a crack at everyone else. It's hard to cut this all out when you are working from home. There's no separation. Still happier working from home though.

    Has your Mum had any alteration to her medication Satzy? It's good that she is more alert just without the anxiety. It would be a hell of a fright to suddenly realise you've been living in a nursing home.

    JC, I started some Marie Kondo some time ago as well. Only got half way through then just left it in a high traffic area to be tripped over and spew forth it's contents. It's in a box which once housed marine winches, whatever they are. Everyone who walks in thinks that we are boating enthusiasts until they trip over one of my old bras. I don't think it's legit Kondo method, nor does it spark joy but I do enjoy folk looking at it askance on their way to the living room.
    If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

    Re: International Army October 2020

    Good morning everyone. Sorry about your #*#** week Satz, it never rains but it pours. Hopefully this week will be better. Ever tried writing comedy Bridget? You have a wonderful way with words, you always give me a chuckle. Sleep tight.

    Yea it’s nice to buy local but sometimes you just can’t get what you want. There is all the uncertainty about Brexit too, crazy bloody year, be glad to see the back of it. I have a lot of fiddly things I need to do but can’t motivate myself to do them. Think I’ll do the same as I did for cleaning the patio. I took one thing a day and dealt with it and now it’s all done. Will try that and see how I go.
