    i am glad to see a shiny new thread, i noticed the other one was locked and was worried it had gone forever more. Thanks soolin

    yeah careful i had a good time, going to be there again the next couple of weeks, decided not to try driving in todays snow so hoping it does turn to sleet overnight as bbc says it will and i can drive safely down the m1 tomorrow. i dont trust melting snow which leads to black ice and idiot motorway drivers so didnt go today after all. after i get there it can snow all it wants until i want to come home again.

    and i do want to say that i have found everyone in here to be very welcoming and friendly, and have never felt like i shouldnt or couldnt be here even though i dont have fibro, so thank you all of you for making me feel comfortable being here.

    I was just about to answer your post cwta My hair is now a lovely reddish brown but in the past it has been lots of different colours including a lovely blue in my punk days that was a long long time ago though. My normal colour is light brown with a sprinkle of silver :rolleyes: at the salon dd works in their not aloud to call it grey Her backs still bad, but she's hoping to start work again on Friday, but she's seeing the chiro again tomorrow and her boss has said he doesnt want her back until she's 100%, I hope shes ok to go back, she's sooooo bored and is starting to get annoying.

    I hope you get some lovely pics tomorrow, but be careful out there, its cold and slippery, Im not budging until it warms up

    Hello everyone oops cant rememebr anything to reply to now as its all in the other thread all i will say is im sure we have been very friendly and welcoming to everyone apart from people that seem to deliberately try and cause an unsettled feeling!

    i decided to take the car out this morning as the main roads appeared clear which wasnt a good idea by end of school:rolleyes: i had to stay all day as lots of staff had to leave early as they dont live locally and were afraid they wouldnt get home! By the time i left at half 3 it was covered everywhere and i almost had an accident on the drive it slopes downwards and even though i had stopped and put the handbrake on the car continued on its way and i only managed to stop it about an inch from the garage door!!! my neighbour helped me to clear the snow behind the wheels and we got some grit salt from a local bin and i managed to pull it back a couple of feet, tomorrow im walking we wont know intil the morning though if we are to close school :rolleyes: but i will have to be there anyway if we close in case children arrive and need to be sent back home! we have about 6 inches of snow now and its still snowing ds1 is out with friends on the local golf course with sledges but ds2 decided it was too cold lol, hes nesh like his mum

    i hope everyone who hasnt been as well as they could be recently is feeling better soon and that the grey clouds blow away very soon xxxx

    Shiny new thread...

    My feet are cold and wet. Grr! Had to go out in the snow. But it's okay, the stuff I had to post cost a lot less than I expected and my doctor has given me new meds to try. Pregabalin (Lyrica) and dihydrocodeine, this time, so we'll see how that goes. Not asking for medication advice, but any of you want to let me know side-effects to look out for with these two?

    Hi folks

    Just a quickie for now as I'm still catching up from the old thread (when I saw it had been locked I freaked a bit -it only took me about 4 pages to see it), and then I saw that folks had been asking after me and were getting a bit worried about me.

    Sorry, didn't mean to worrit anyone. Started off with internet problems, and I had to wait for a while for Techno Sprog to sort it - it actually involved a spot of re-cabling in the end. The advantage of having a T/S in the house is that he's more than capable of doing these things. The disadvantage of having a T/S in the house is that he's frequently not here or too busy to do these things.

    I had intended coming back last week, but I'm afraid a bit of R/L caught up with me which delayed my return.

    Right - back to finish the old thread (good grief! you lot have done a lot of talking in the last couple of weeks!) Oh well, at least it's knocked me out of the top 5 for posting on the fibro thread.

    Nesh? Bleedin Nesh??!! Raeh, what on earth is that?
    Is it like me being a soft Southerner - born in County Durham, but exhiled here in the SW?

    The car thing musta been scary. I had a driving lesson in the snow once and we parked on a hill ut continued to slide backwards down it. Taught me to angle the wheels into the kerb whenever I park and that's something that has stayed with me.
    Only a very light sprinkling of snow has stayed here and it isn't actively added to it for a few hours. I wish I had 6 inches It's been a while

    Hey, welcome back S/E - we really missed you .

    Raeh - I too am perplexed by 'nesh' - we have 'clesh' which is another word for 'good' as in "It's clesh here isn't it?"

    I watched the news at 6.30 pm and couldn't believe the footage of the Capital at a standstill . We have a lot to learn from the Scanidnavian nations who still manage to keep going and even land planes in worse than this. Mind you if it keeps up like this I'll be cancelling my GP appointment tomorrow .

    I managed to get into the kitchen today and made a sultana slab and a rather large coconut rice pudding which may well be a cure for depression .

    'Nesh' is another word for 'feeble' -- s'what my grandmother always used to call me if I kept my coat on indoors in winter!

    I almost choked on my cuppa

    Billy has been out in the garden making a snowman and throwing snowballs at kipper who was madly leaping about eating the snow and is now fast asleep and snoring as he tired himself out [the dog not bill!!] it was lovely to see as we never seem to get a good snow fall.

    unity dh is in canada skiing and is due back thursday and they were warned today that the airports in london were closed, they have had twice as much snow fall every day over there and yet their planes would be able to take off to bring them back, they just wouldnt be able to land when they got here hopefully it will have improved before hes due to fly back

    right im slipping , i havent done any competitions today, im also very tired after working all day, i wouldnt be able to do that very often

    keep warm and well everyone xx

    After the end of the last thread, I figured we could do with a little light relief, raeh.
    We have "teasy" here. "I'm feeling some teasy"
    Some = a lot, considerably
    Teasy = irritated

    Just the one slice of the sultana slab please, Unity. Love that you're feeling a little brighter.

    I had a fabbie dinner - lamb chop, dolphin-nose (dauphinoise) potatoes, gravy and mint sauce. The lamb was absolutely gorge.
    Must remember, I do not need any choccie.
