    Re: October Army 2021

    Morning

    @brit.......another first. You're bound to be anxious and I know you're a shy one but let them know you're a lone traveler.
    After Uncle died my Aunt went to America for the first time without her husband of nearly 50 years (to see her son and his family) her daughter and I told the powers that be she was a lone traveler. She was treated like a queen. They gave her priority and assisted boarding.............she wasn't too happy that the bloke turned up with a wheelchair. So she put her hand luggage in it. We're crossing our fingers she can get over this Christmas.
    Apart from the last two Chrimbos she hasn't been over she's okay with it now.
    Oh and she much prefers Aer Lingus that BA. Aer Lingus bent over backward to make sure she was happy and safe. She loves Dublin Airport. Heathrow is vile.

    Well into first place is Father Ted for comedy especially the caravan episode but the lingerie one is easily second.

    [QUOTE=JackieClaire;1801403]Morning



    Good morning everyone.

    Thinking of you Brit, lots of good advice from the Molly one. Iím off at cock crow Wednesday morning. Canít wait to give my daughter a hug. I was going to stay with her but it probably would be too cramped. Found an Airbnb literally around the corner from her place.

    IKEA will make a fortune out of all of us. I have a list of stuff for this cottage. Nothing happening fast. Our solicitor on holidays until 18th.

    Hope the legs are ok Mary, waves to everyone else.

Go and have that adventure (I know going to Norway was probably completely routine pre. covid - but now - it IS a bit of an adventure) -- enjoy every minute in a lovely different place with your lovely daughter...
    I was getting cold feet about our move to Mayo (just a little bit - never going to not do it) - but I gave myself a good talking to --- we both want this adventure -- and we deserve it - more than 40 years caring and worrying about family and home and bills and jobs -- this is OUR time (and we're only 2.5 hours from Dublin) -- yup we're back to looking at boats and electric bikes and feck it -- not going to end my days worrying about things that probably will never happen... go and have a great time and bring us back a stick of rock
    oh WELL SAID Molls - all of it !
    Get away from all the shite.

    Just listening there - Dublin has go to the dogs. €350 a month for a nurse to share a double room - like share a double bed - with a stranger. So the person is subletting a double room....... ridiculous.

    Hello to Rusty,Molly, JC,Techie Bridget and all to come.
    Now Now Ms A what's to worry about. You've travelled alone before - to Dublin anyway
    I had that conversation with someone yesterday - we are all a bit wary when travelling after so long.

    Off you go & have a ball..........

    Did you pat him on the head and give him a doggy treat Now he's done it once he'll never be away from the place.

    What did we do before IKEA? Where did we go on a wet Sunday afternoon?

    Just popped in to say nighty night got to be up at dawn as they're delivering the washing machine between 8:08am and noon. Although I look like I've been dragged through bush most of the day but its at its worse in the morning.

    Ooh and FB is fecked along with whatsapp for some.

    Nighty night, lovelies.

    Good morning everyone.

    On the early shift as well. Only thing I missed was whatís app for sending SIL a message but just reverted to texting. Ways and means.

    Hope Brit arrived ok. Not going to get much sleep tonight as I have a 6am flight in morning. Will check in when I arrive. Am sure I will have internet.
