    Re: International Army October 2020

    Good morning/afternoon Troopers!

    Was a bank holiday yesterday - wet and rainy most of the day and still cloudy today. A mere 16C - we're definitely into Fall. Love it when I get up in the morning and can smell smoke from the fireplaces. I don't have one yet but I can dream.

    Jackie - what the others said - get yer orbs looked after darling. Hopefully it is just a matter of normal ageing and not something more serious. In the meantime Lutein is supposed to e good for your eyes. My Mom has taken it for years now and I, myself started recently. Hope your niece has recovered.

    Satzy - having a dog is like having a toddler - the poo is gonna get you at some point! Best of luck to Mr. S on the hip replacement. Great news on the nursing home. No positives among the residents is brilliant. I agree about Christmas[ - it's just soooo commercial anymore. I was in a store on Tuesday and they have the Christmas decorations out. FFS, we haven't even had Hallowe'en yet, although I have no idea whatsoever why it is celebrated here in Greece. Never was until the last few years. Another marketing programme aimed at consumers. It's not like any of the kids would go trick or treating or anything...

    Bridge - what the others say - you have a fab sense of humour and have always made me laugh with the way you express yourself. That was one of the things that stood out on the Undies thread - the Aussie humour!

    KTAB - I saw your post on the Sunday Shout Out thread. Well done. It's so good to see you sounding so much more positive in spite of all the shite that's happening.

    Well, we are NOT doing well here in Greece as far as Covid goes. 1550 new cases yesterday and 1250 the day before with 22 new deaths in those two days. I'm starting to get freaked out. No way to protect myself from others around me. I don't even feel that wearing a mask all the time will help. And younger son who works with me is not helping. He went out for drinks with a friend on Tuesday night, then had two couples and their children over to his place for lunch yesterday. He is not practicing social distancing and is putting me in danger by his actions. I'm not pleased about it but not much I can do about it either. Can't force him to wear a mask all the time. Just both frustrating and scary.

    Well, the good part about the week, except for it being a holiday yesterday is that the thick smelly person has been given his notice and as of tomorrow at 5:30 pm will no longer be a part of our staff. So that should help me be less stressed out and more content in my work environment. Just have to find someone to replace him.

    Waves to Rusters, Mers, Molly and anyone I haven't mentioned and wishing you all a great day/evening!!

    @IamMary - I'd always agree to the 'use it or lose it'. But to excess is worse than not at all.
    I never had issues with my back - always going to gym or somewhere. Building strength in bones & muscles rather than anything else.
    Now self diagnosed Sciatica FFS... anyone know how to help that ? Physio ?
    I think it's from the chair in work.

    I'll be stealing MrS painkillers today just to walk.

    Well Stirls you CAN insist he wear a mask. He is endangering all that he meets - you & customers - with his attitude. His actions are worse than smelly guy
    If I were you I'd insist he doesn't come to work unless he adheres to guidelines. I presume you are his boss ?
    I think the Greeks are a bit like the Irish - blŗse about rules & regulations ? Breaking the law is the only thing that gets through to us.
    He would be fined here. We are in lockdown.
    Police have been given new power to fine on the spot. And rightly so.

    Re: International Army October 2020

    Good morning everyone. Sending healing vibes to those of you with health issues. Look after yourselves in this crazy time. Thatís a hard one Stirly but we are all facing issues like that. Daughter in Norway determined to come home for Christmas and other daughter saying she better not come and bring virus or my whole team at work goes down. Norway not bad but there is a risk traveling but then again other daughter dealing with the public all day every day so is at constant risk anyways. Our numbers are going down but once they open up we will be off again.

    Horrible horrible morning here. Got a short walk in so that is good for the head space. We are burning wood and love the smell in the evening. Should really be sitting in front of a fire now but am clearing out shoes!

    Re: International Army October 2020

    Morning and waves,
    Crap stuff:
    Gawd knows what's going to happen. Borris is in Brussel arguing about fish.
    Disgusting images of the day. Nigel Farrage at a Trump rally.

    Medical stuff:
    @IamMary....especially for you and anyone else
    iI suppose it is a two tier.
    NHS..........we pay through our wages.............big chunk for pensions and the NHS depending on your earnings.
    Private:I'm talking about the hospital near us. Used by those that have it as perk from work ( I did when I worked at the wine merchant) or the very rich or like us counting the £2 pound jar. At our local private hospital doesn't have an emergency room so if it goes belly up they ring for an NHS ambulance.

    Back Stuff:
    @satz123................I had sciatica when I was pregant with the S&H......he would position himself near on on the nerve.....it hurts. I used to have to get on my hands and knees and gently rock back and forwards.......a rather odd image. I've got some of Bess's pain medication and its exactly the same as co-codomol but a tad more expensive.

    Christmas stuff:
    Jenny and Ads were going to his mum's this year anyway.....his children are 9 and 6....and he should be seeing them on Christmas day for year first time in six years.
    The S&H is supposed to here as DIL's mother makes mashed potato out of the powdered stuff and microwave veg (actually now I've typed that I might give it a go) and our bubble (my friend from infant's school).

    Virus stuff:
    After Boris is finished talking about fish him and 'people' will dither about woneridng if we should have a 4th Tier but its OK they give us a few days to get ready.
    The vaccine is on its way ( apprently there's loads to go around)

    Masks:
    Shiow him Dr. Fauci, Stirly, he's one of the good guys who talk sense.

    Other things;
    I could have sworn I heard Bess in the kitchen last night.
    I must get dressed.
    @rustop59..........have you had your birthday? Shall we have a cake day tomorrow for you?
    It was 11:45am when I started this post but I kept wandering off to do stuff.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Hi Satz. I don't know much about physio etc. This might be helpful though. It feels good to me, but obviously do your research. Good luck.

    Good morning everyone. Yea that’s what she plans to do Mary, knows she needs to isolate before she sees anyone and has to do the same going back. I’m finishing work mid December and himself works from home. Just need to keep her out of the other ones way! Thanks for the cake offer JC, today is the day.

    Had a nice walk in the woods this morning. Himself gave me Neville Maguires new cookery book. I asked for it as could not justify buying myself another cookery book and he also threw in Mary McAleeses one. Have not read a real book in ages, do it all online so really looking forward to it. Have a good day everyone.

    Re: International Army October 2020

    Evening all
    Have had a great read back, loads of laughs
    Had a v busy week with the end of month dramas at work but am pleased to say my nemesis is taking 6 months off.. last couple of days next week.. so a wonderful win win
    @Guitarista thanks for the sciatica tip - my brother is really suffering from that at the moment so have sent it to him and hopefully it will help.
    @mollyka back driving in 4 weeks The surgery must be way different than when I had it in 2008. I wasn't allowed drive for 12 weeks!
    Isn't it awesome we can get spare parts .. what a time to be alive.. my mind boggles at the number of illnesses I had as a kid that would've killed me in another time without penicillin
    Loads happening here, raining again so more sorting this weekend. A bonfire for lots of old bills perhaps. My son is moving out.. only one more left to go and she's given me notice. Its a funny feeling, like one minute I'm almost afraid to be on my own, but then the other minute I'm excited at entering a new phase of life. My neighbours for the last 15 years have sold their house and left yesterday. I will miss them but now I can visit them on the coast! I have got a huge amount of painting, repairing and gardening to get done before summer makes it too hot. I want to rent my house out and that is going to be a mammoth task. No idea how long it will take.
    Wishing everyone a lovely day/evening and look forward to catching up a bit more over the weekend.
