    MAE ALL...

    Took some time off the computer after the AGM. It went well and I'm glad it's over. Now just need to get the ex-boss out of the picture. He eventually showed up with the company laptop on Friday after I texted him and said I was leaving by 1:30pm. Wasn't going to sit around waiting for him all day, being as it was my last day of freedom. I am looking forward to having a boss back in the picture, maybe everyone else will go back to their own positions.

    Det...so sorry to hear you got the dreaded C. I'm glad you're young and healthy and on the mend. I bet not being able to taste your food is the biggest drawback for you.

    Lav...unbelievable! I can relate though as my ex was the same. I'm glad you don't take it personally because it's not, it's just the way it is.

    TG...sorry about the car troubles, it seems like it's just one thing after another. You'll get through it, you're a strong one.

    Mick...excellent work on the worktops. You made me chuckle when you said you can't restore voice posts. Hope your tooth isn't giving you too much grief and that it gets sorted soon.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Have a good day all....PPQP

    Re: Nov 21

    Good evening friends,

    Just sent my son & his family home, haha! It was hectic but fun as well.
    I had the almost 13 yr old rolling out & baking gingerbread man cookies, he had a ball & did a great job too.

    PQ, thanks for the start up. Glad your meeting went well & hope you are resting your brain at this point.
    I hope the new boss is way better than the last. You all need a break!
    I have reasoned it all out in my head & I know my DIL is not trying to hurt anyone. She’s just rushing around from one thing to the next & doesn’t stay focused. Annoying as hell but I won’t take it personally.
    She reminds me of the reason I decided very early on that I will never work with psych patients, they drive me friggin crazy haha!

    Mick, glad you are OK, missed you. Th eleak you describe sound just like one we had in our huose when I was growing up. My dad was always yelling about us standing too forward in the shower & causing it to leak in the kitchen. He was full of sh*t & I knew it even then, Lol. Hope you can get it fixed soon . Happy birthday to Julie’s dad

    Hello to Cyn, Det, Pauly, Sam & Pie.

    Have a nice night all!

    Re: Nov 21

    Good morning all and how are you this morning? Hope all is well. I probably just made the most carefully poached eggs on toast in the kitchen that I have ever done! But all is well. My friend is coming up tomorrow, it is over 18 months since we last met up so we are going out for a carvery dinner and a catch up, unfortunately the place we used to go to has now closed down, so I have found somewhere else. Then Wednesday I am at at the dentist I think it is just for a check-up up but no doubt we are going to discuss my aching tooth.
    Hiya ppqp, how are you today then? Hope you are good. So today the new boss starts is it? Hope he is better than the last one that borrowed the title and did nothing. Yes I did the message voice to type press the button and hey presto off into the ether it went. Hope you have a good day

    Hiya lav how are you then? Glad you had a good weekend and making gingerbread men. Julie's nephews son who is only 9 got a metal detector for his birthday so I spent most of the meal with w him in my ear wanting to go metal detecting,or treasure hunting as he says so so I have dug out a few old coins that he can practice and play with. I think you are right, and your daughter-in-law isn't going out to deliberately be a pain in the butt, but probably a case of not thinking, not caring for any outcomes. It's like someone throwing stone in a pond, the ripple effect and her action is the throwing stone into the pond and not considering the ripples and the effect it has on other folk. Consultancy over that'll be $20 thank you haha take care have a great day

    Hiya det hope you are feeling better mate

    Hiya teegee How are you today then?hope all is well with you

    MAE ALL...

    New guy seems to be ok so far. We've done some chatting off and on, basically getting him set up with keys and passwords etc. So far I agree with his thinking which is different that the ex-boss. He is supposed to meet up with the old boss sometime this week and go over some things and then him and I have a meeting next Wednesday. so will wait and see how it goes.

    Lav...sounds like you had a good day yesterday. Yup, it takes a certain type of person to work with psych patients it wouldn't be for me either. Your craft fair will be here before you know it.

    Mick...I think I'll have a poached egg for my supper tonight. Haven't had one for quite awhile. A carvery dinner, I like the way that sounds. It'll be nice to see your friend. Looks like you've got another one when it come to detecting. You'll have to take him out with sometime. Hope the dentist can figure out another solution for your tooth.

    Det...hope you're continuing to mend, hang in ther.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: Nov 21

    Greetings folks!

    Half decent day here, saw the sun trying to show through the clouds a few times. Had a little rain overnight so now we have wet leaves everywhere which drive my allergies crazy, haha!

    Mick, thanks for your observation on my DIL situation. Now listen to this: she announced they are coming over Christmas eve this year (why wait for an invitation?) I said Oh & didn’t commit myself. This morning I told my daughter about that & her response was ‘well I’m coming too so she’ll just have to deal with it’ Lol!!! So, I think perhaps there will be a war here on Christmas eve!!! Should be pretty freaking interesting, haha!!! Deep down I would like to see these two sit down & work out their differences so I don’t have to continue entertaining one family & the other family the next day. I’m exhausted.
    I hope you have a great time with your friend, sounds good. It would be nice if you could take the young guy out detecting & show him the right way to find stuff
    Good luck with the dentist - again!

    PQ, the new boss situation sounds promising, fingers crossed!
    You’re absolutely right - no psych patients for us, they drive me crazy haha!!! Hope your weather is holding up. Looks like a dry day in the mid 50’s for us on Thanksgiving, yay.

    Hello to Cyn & Det, Pauly & Sam.

    Have a nice night all.

    Mae all -

    Lav, sounds like there are a lot of possibilities for drama this holiday season! I love your attitude... can't try to control what you can't control... . The gingerbread cookies sound like it was a great hit, how fun and what great memories you are making...

    PPQ, oh I do hope that this new boss is more aligned with your thinking - that would be wonderful. Good luck with all!

    Mick, so glad the poached eggs stayed on the plate! Congrats on your beautiful counters, very impressive. I hope your dentist visit went well - I should see. Dentist soon, but trying to figure out if I should see someone in the east, then start again in the Midwest? Just hoping for the best for now... Did you have a good visit with your friend? How was the new carvery? Enquiring minds...

    Det, crossing fingers that you are still healing - take care, and rest! Pauly, hoping you and the fam are well...
    Hello to all others dropping by...

    Re: Nov 21

    And good afternoon everybody how are we today then? Hope all is well. Just got back from having lunch, I am absolutely full. The food was good, I had a large Carvery which basically meant loads of meat and as much vegetable as you want so I took them at their word! I won't be wanting any tea probably not tomorrow either haha. We had a good old catch up it is 2 years and 1 week since we last met up and yet seems nothing like that I was his deputy in the prison service, strange how these friendship develop the factors we were both pretty poorly at the same time helps him more so than me

    Hiya teegee and how are you today then? I haven't been to the dentist yet that pleasure is reserved for tomorrow and yes the poached eggs stayed in place yet again this morning for madams breakfast!

    Hiya lav I am sending you by mail a tin helmet for when the fighting starts. This could go one of either way! Hopefully sense will be seen and they will make up full stop it is very cold over here today, and again there was a big frost on the ground this morning. I watched Bonnie earlier on she actually refused food so I knew there was something wrong. Gave her medication, massaged her stomach left her in peace, and guess what she is eating again back to normal full stop thank goodness I know the signs of the two mad rabbits! Hope you have a good day

    Hiya ppqp and how are you today? Did you have poached egg last night question mark how have you got on with the new boss today day? Is it new Broom sweeps clean? It will be good for you to have an Ally as opposed to a bunch of backstabbers. Have you still got snow over there? Stay safe and warm

    Hiya pauly hope you are doing ok?

    Right folks will leave you in peace take care be safe ��

    Re: Nov 21

    Greetings friends,

    Quiet around here, husband & son are out for a fire company dinner in our old hometown. This event is always right before Thanksgiving & gives the people who have moved away to catch up on all the news. I made myself dinner in the Instant Pot & have plenty of leftovers, yum. I am trying to catch up on embroidery orders & making sure I have enough to take to the Dec 4 fair. No one here bugging me but the dog, haha!

    Cyn, it’s true, there could be a lot of drama on Christmas eve OR my DIL can grow the hell up & do the right thing. How long can you use your mental health as a reason/excuse anyway?
    I just want to see my two grown kids & the grandkids get a chance to catch up. Not really asking for that much
    If you don’t have any dental emergency going on maybe waiting until you’re settled in your new area might be easier. Finding new doctors when you move is always a thrill (not). Hope your week is going well.

    Mick, greta that you enjoyed your catch up visit & lunch. Sounds like you ate enough for two days, haha!
    You know, I’ve been thinking about it & I can easily say I am ready to throw any miserable people out of here, even my DIL if necessary. It’s going to be her choice whether she stays or not & she may just refuse to come over anyway. We shall see. Glad Bonnie is OK - just a temporary bellyache, that’s good.

    Hello to PQ, hope your day was good!

    Det, Pauly, Sam & Pie, hello to all.

    Have a nice night kids, have to get back to work.

    MAE ALL...

    Lav...so far the new boss is working out. He's still getting his feet wet and has started scheduling some individual meetings. The accountant is up first. It'll be interesting to see what procedures she tells him and then have the old boss tell his side of things. The old boss is scheduled to meet with him on Thursday. It was around 35F this morning and by 10am the snow arrived with the cold wind. Not much more than a few flurries and it won't be sticking around. Just fair warning it's coming. Christmas Eve will be what it will be but I'm hoping for the best. Just make sure you keep all the leftover perogies for yourself.

    TG...yes, I'm still positive about the new boss. I've like his response to a couple of questions I've asked and we're scheduled to meet next week. I'm glad it's after he meets with the old boss because then I can feel him out about what he thinks. You might want to wait about the dentist till you're settled, it's such a hassle starting new all the time.

    Mick...I'm glad you were onto Bonnie right away, getting it sorted right away probably helps. Sounds like you had a wonderful meetup and lunch with your friend. I would have taken advantage of the food too. Glad the new place worked for you. I did have a poached egg for supper last night, it hit the spot. It may just be new Broom sweeps clean. A couple of comments I've made about the old bosses ideas as far as events/catering he doesn't agree with. He's definitely more in line with my thinking.

    Det...thinking of you and hoping you're still improving.

    Shout out to the rest of the gang. Have a good night all....PPQP

    Re: Nov 21

    Hello everyone and how are we today? Hope all is well. it is absolutely freezing over here today, and as we speak I am outside the dentists. I have an appointment in 10 minutes it's a check up and hygienist visit which is sometimes more painful and the dentist himself. Bonnie is fine today day I think she has picked up his bad habits eating as much food as she can in as little time as possible but nevertheless it can cause serious if not fatal consequences. I enjoyed that lunch yesterday I will definitely be going back there. It was also good to catch up with my friend as well, definitely both of the same mind glad to be out of it all. Well it's time to go and sit in the chair for the nice man on so hope you have a nice day and take care
