    No wonder Camelot said we were all Nuts.

    ivyleaf At least you will get your cataracts done. 5 or 6 years ago they were not allowing them to be done at all. I had resigned myself to never having mine done.

    I have been lucky they don't seem to have got any worse in the last 5 years.

    Room for as many as can find a space love, there's always tea or coffee and usually someone has a custard cream secreted away in a secret place to share with us. If you make virtual cake you'll be an instant hit!!! Mine's a carrot cake please, welcome in !!! xxx.

    nursemaggie that's awful that they stopped doing them at all! I know a lot of people had one done and then the hospital kept making excuses not to do the other one, but the govt have now warned the NHS Trusts concerned that it is unacceptable to do that.. if that happened to me I think I'd have a permanent headache as I'd have one eye with (hopefully) 20/20 vision and one at minus 10.

    I'm not going to work again, you lot have too much fun! Sorry to say the pigeon won't be arriving mar, I think I ran over it on the way home. The custard cream got squished under the tyre but that's nothing compared to the feathers and bits of pigeon stuck to the bumper. (This is a true story by the way, apart from the custard cream!).

    Sorry you're under a lot of stress FBO, not sure what's happened but take care of yourself.

    Hugs to FBO and anyone else in need.
    If Mar has eaten the Elephant and GQ's Nursie is busy, email me your address FBO and I'll come to yours all dressed in leather, wearing my thigh length boots and carrying my floggers and a bull whip.
    It's not a pretty sight and would make anyone turn tail and run (well after they had taken a video to send up to YBF)
    Possibly not as scary as an elephant but I'm the size of a baby one!
    Chin up, Titus out.

    Oh my - I turn my back for 5 minutes and you're all at it again. Mar's eaten the elephant with a side of custard creams. Monna's got a zorbing Dalmatian, Hester's getting tooled up ( rephrase - going equipped) The Lawyers in the freezer, Mrs L is eating cake and Camelot's squashed the pidgeon................I need a lie down in a darkened room for quite a while

    Right you lot! Time for bed! Back to your rooms with the nice, cushiony wallpaper, put on your pyjama jackets, (you know, the ones that fasten up at the back) and line up for your meds! We can't be having this nonsense, the full moon was days ago, so there's no excuse!

    BTW did you Fencers realise there is a poster on MSE who goes by the name of EatingTheElephant ....so be careful of drawing attention to any remaining Hefalumps (that Mar has so far left unscathed due to a lack of freezer space! )

    PS: I chanced upon said posters name whilst browsing the site, thought I was 'seeing' things!

    Morning! Lovely day here. We're visiting DD1 in a while as she's babysitting her son's chameleon while he's on holiday and wants to show it to us. I've promised not to wear anything multicoloured, it's only a baby so don't want to make it work too hard!

    Then we're going to their local church's Fun Day, on the local Green near their home, as she goes there every year to be dragged along by her dog which gets very excited about all the new smells i'm glad the church has a beautiful day for it this year - it was pouring with rain last year.

    You won't read this until later silvasava, so I hope it went well.

    We had to buy some sunscreen this morning as what we had was 2 years old so we thought best not to trust it and had got rid of it. DD and I enjoyed ambling round the stalls, but the police had brought one of their vehicles to display, and were letting all the kids sound the siren as often as they wanted. We felt so sorry for the stallholders near it, not to mention the people living across the road!

    I bought a couple of books (one is for DS), a cat fridge magnet and a beautiful greetings card with a black and white kitten on it - not sure if I shall send it to anyone as I'm not sure I can part with it , and two lobelia plants which I shall plant when it's not so hot - they can stay in the shade by the back of the house for now.

    I have no idea what we'll eat this evening - it's certainly too hot to cook, or to want to eat hot food. I think last time it was as hot as this we ended up just having yoghurt! Neither of us wanted anything else. I suppose fish and chips might be a nice change, but that would involve going by car, and poor OH had a terrible job to shoehorn it into its parking bay, so perhaps not.
