    Re: Army June 2021

    Happy hangover free Sunday morning folks. 6.30 am, the sun is shining inside and out and itís going to be a lovely day. DW commented yesterday to me on how much happier I am since I quit this time around, a different person in fact and it is so true. I suppose feeling free from the chains of almost constantly thinking about al, being either semi drunk or semi hungover does that to a person. The world is a brighter place to me now the fog has lifted and stayed that way, feeling feelings, facing the bad ones as well as the good without the crutch of what I thought was supporting me when in reality it was just a way to run away is liberating. Put quite simply nothing is ever going to take this real version of life away from me again. Enjoy your Sunday today, sober it is a gift, drinking you are throwing it away and what a sad thing that is.
    Ethanol is a toxic chemical, why would I drink it?

Has wifi, hence its popularity.

    Rustop, that sounds just fabulous! Im with Molls on the people 'at' me , but I love the rest!

    This weekend is apparently going to be roasting. Im not moaning yet.. but seriously Bridge, how do you stick it!!
    I was in Darwin for a couple of weeks once and I dont think Ive ever recovered.

    Wheres @JackieClaire?
    Yes where is JC?

    Mary I have never gotten used to the heat and humidity. It's not like Darwin here of course, but it still knocks me so I get where your're coming from. We get up to 40 degrees here but it's the humidity that does me.

    Lost my favourite uncle during the week. Very sad time. Getting ready to pack up and head North for the funeral next week, leaving Wednesday. Very sudden and no languishing in a horrid nursing home so there's a blessing. It will be good to see folks.

    Glad you are building up the arsenal there @fickle. Throw everything you can get at it girl!
    If your 8 year old self met you, would they be proud?

    Morning everyone. So so sorry to hear about your uncle Bridget but a wonderful way to go for the person.

    I would hate intense heat and humidity but have to say the higher temperatures are nice for sitting outside. Had my breakfast outside this morning and just intend to potter around the garden today. Hope everyone has a nice Sunday. Sounding great there Tabs.

    Afternoon...yup can't agree more about the heat...ideally I would like a constant 20-25 degrees in summer..no hotter and I do love the seasons so i'd leave the rest alone. Just back from big long walk with Adam and his partner...I'm still a bit cross with him ..he was not very supportive when Joe was sick but I think he's oblivious....just as well...had a lovely time and mega Ice creams after!

    Hope everyone okay..a few missing ?

    Crikey I'm a disgrace -- so sorry Bridge -- started typing my last post to offer my condolences on your uncle and then forgot -- jaysus old age is miserable!!! and you're away gallivanting Starty? how lovely -- only back from my wee trip and gagging for another one - will not be holding my breath -- I usually take a few weeks unpaid leave to pad out my holidays but didn't this year and now regretting it!

    Hey Techie and Fickle and all the other Army folks --

    Cos it's a lovely day I amn't doing a big hot dinner -- so it's salmon steaks in lemon butter with asparagus and Irish new potatoes (incomparable in the WORLD ;-) )-- can't think of anything else going on in my world

    Just back from Kerry. Don't talk to me.
    Long story short ......
    We were heading home yesterday from Kenmare so DD could get COVID vaccine @ 5pm.
    MrS driving over a very hairy mountain - The Black Valley.
    Pulled in to let pedestrians pass, hit a hidden rock & got a f*cking puncture on Moll's Gap - yes .... Moll's Gap ....
    No spare in new cars these days & DD's car is last year's.

    Arrived into Killarney in a tow truck - with Gerard .
    Got the new tyre from Denis & DD got her COVID vaccine with Tom in Killarney Vaccine Centre instead of Dublin
    I will NEVER diss Kerry folk again. THE nicest people you could meet.

    Booked into Hotel in Killarney ........... then headed out for something to eat.
    I'm afraid to say the once lovely town of Killarney is now a no-go zone. Thousands out in the streets drinking. All young 'wans' & drunk. No-where to eat. A proper hellhole this weekend.

    Hghlight : Rosie & an excited homecoming ....

    I know you won't believe me but exactly same happened to us...same place..just past Molls Gap..jusy last year!

    I believe Killarney is atrocious alright...riots most nights..a lot of UK visitors the fingers are pointed at ..I dunno..was never mad on Killarney anyway but amazed at the ease your daughter was able to change vaccine venue! HSE flexible???? Who'da thunk

    I DO believe you Molls. Was it just before a bridge ?
    While we were waiting for a tow truck - another car hit the same spot & the side yoke on the car fell off. The lady passenger just got out picked it up & put it in the boot - was hilarious to watch. Her driver partner never even got out

    Gerard the 'tow guy' told us the day before he had 11 call outs !!!!
    I think it has to be a conspiracy with them - I mean why no warning signs ? paint the rocks white ? or SOMETHING
