    The new thoughts of the day thread 12th Apr 14 at 5:06 PM
    I thought i'd start a new fresh thread seeing as the old one was quite long & was started in January 2013. Hopefully this one will be a bit more lively.

    Anyway my thought for the day is why are teenage girls more selfish than teenage boys (imo)? I swear Meg has caused me so much hassle compared to either of my boys & seems to think the world revolves around her.

    I've been to Milton Keynes shopping today & omg it was so busy, i'm so glad I live in a small town as we don't get traffic jams.

    I hope everyone is well & having a lovely weekend.
    I'd rather regret the things I've done than regret the things I haven't done.

    One thought I had when out today was the you could not really have "The Planet of the Horses" like you have "The Planet of the Apes" due to them being unable to operate a musket

    I just met my friend who lost her husband at the end of last year. She is having a very bad day today.

    Normally she reminds me of me, hard faced (because, like me, she's had to be) but to see this normally strong and forceful woman reduced to tears because there's a huge husband sized hole in her life has just about finished me off today.

    And I know there's nothing I can do or say to help her. I feel so useless

    Such a shame. Maybe she feels she can be emotional round you because she knows you know what it feels like. Is this the dog walker who didn't mention it for a good while?

    Irritated by myself because my memory is so bad.

    I found an old camera the other day that I thought would be good for the grandchildren to play with. They've just gone out to a nearby beauty spot with my husband and daughter so I thought it would be the ideal time to give it to them, but I can't find it anywhere.

    Yes, it is. I can't even tell her that you get over it, coz you don't. You just learn to live with it
    I really hope Federer wins today as that will cheer her up

    She does say she can tell me things she can't say to her family so I hope I'm helping a little bit.

    Problem is it drags all my buried memories out into the cold light of day. And what with being over tired it's made me sad. I better sleep before I get maudlin
