    Mobile phone storage, got an extrenal 32GB SD card - useless since most apps cannot be moved there! Phone is 8GB, but 3.5GB used by system memory, only got 1.37GB, can't download a decent game due to the storage!!!! I hate these default apps than cannot be moved e.g. youtube.

    I think I got tonsilitus. Throat started to hurt earlier this afternoon and the back of my throat is covered with white patches.

    I don't want anymore illnesses

    This damn computer ....

    For some reason it is having a go slow today. Taking ages loading internet pages and putting in a lovely delay when I am typing so that what I have typed is about 2 words in front of where the screen is at.

    Wonder what is scanning on it!
    Sadly I can't check as i don't have the rights as work don't trust us

    I will fuel myself and hope it sorts itself out.

    Its a good job that I can type and not have to look at the screen to see what i am typing!

    I got hit by a speeding motability scooter in the indoor shopping precinct. They didn't even stop. Would that be classed as hit and run?

    Constructive criticism. How can I tell my heart attitude is right to give it?

    How do I know it will be accepted as it's meant? To heal not put a wedge between us.

    Is it really any of my business? I'm a friend but the issue has nothing to do with me.

    Maybe I'll just wait till I'm asked my opinion. It's probably safer.

    Ignorant, lazy people who won't put the effort in to learning how to do even the most basic tasks for themselves.

    It is NOT you silly. It is the bl..dy Christmas market thread. I don't do chutney and all that stuff. Just lots of wine.

    I never learn my lesson. Broken up with partner of 2 years (my decision) and as a result have lost friends to. History repeating itself!

    They weren't really friends, then Katiie.

    Situations like this sort the wheat from the chaff, often with surprises, but make you stronger as you realise who your true friends really are.

    Don't mourn the fly-by-nights - they're not worth it, really.
