    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    @brit............had to google Coronary Angiogram. Hope it all goes well. Shame about your daughter.

    @mollyka..............hows about streaking up and down Grafton Street for a bit of excitement.

    Tired as can be but serves me right as I watched Terminator 2 'til yon time.

    Evening everyone

    Hope test goes well Brit. Take no notice of that one Molly, we don’t want to hear about you on the 9 o’clock news. Climbed Lugnaquilla and the weather was miserable. Had all the gear so was ok. Went for lunch in the Glenmalure inn, lovely spot and just chilled for the evening. Very tired now as did a pick up in city around 12.30 last night. Night all.

    Happy May fellow campers, a lovely time of year in nature. I didn’t climb any mountains today but it feels like I did figuratively speaking.
    Ethanol is a toxic chemical, why would I drink it?

    Me neither Tabbers. Didn't streak down Grafton Street neither

    Did go into work though - God it's difficult but my job is a doddle compared to the Care Assistants who have all the tough work to do.
    We are going to form a group of like minded people who - if the worst happens and we are confined to a chair day in and day out - we will help each other with alternatives

    The medical focus seems to be to keep older people alive at all costs. But it's not living being locked up for the past 2 years with no family visits for fear of Covid.
    Even now your day consists of sitting in a room with 25 others all day with the TV blaring. With breaks for meals & 'toileting'. Stuff of nightmares imo. It is a truly horrible existence not having your mind any more.
    Most of them are just extremely unhappy and want to go 'home'.

    Now on that cheery note
    Nighty night xxxx

    That would drive you to drink @satz123, very sad. I get that nursing home have to stay vigilant, but at what cost? I think a lot of the covid ways are convenient now for people (schools are slow to bring back PT meeting, school tours and a lot more). But people in nursing homes.. you paint a very sad picture.

    Bank holiday today, actually doing a booze run now, incase anyone sees me with bottles of wine and beer in my trolley in tesco! Confirmation next week, won't be a boozy day but have to have something! At least I can buy it without feeling uneasy, although i will still want to hide it under the toilet roll and explain to the girl on the till that we are having an actual party!! Old habits...

    I couldn't agree more re. the 'covid ways' --- I know you work from home Mary and I'm sure maybe your company is set up well for it... but I cannot count the number of times I've tried to do stuff connected with moving house and the WFH people I've been dealing with... oh latherin HEART -- utter chaos and confusion... nobody knows what in the past the person at the next desk would have known -- it's an absolute shambles and my heart SINKS when people laud the advantages of it.... yeah I'm sure it's grand for child-minding etc.... but really?? Someone in Laya who couldn't see the details of my policy -- someone in Sky who 'will get back to you' cos he couldn't get the information I needed.. and never gets back... how many dropped calls because of bad connections... it really isn't good enough... can you sense I'm frustrated????!!!!

    Re: May Army 2022

    Afternoon all -- just had to get that off my chest!!!

    Got loads of plants transplanted and ready for travel ... taken cuttings and just loads of gardening done.... dead tired now tho...

    As regards the old people in the nursing homes -- I just think that's so sad... it really is... but what is the alternative I wonder... they got dogs abuse back at the beginning when the old people weren't protected... and I expect they fear another variant that will be worse maybe... oh I dunno -- I think to rob the elderly of their last few years --- very sad
