    Old Style Daily Friday 15th March 2019 15th Mar 19 at 2:14 AM
    This is an “over the garden fence” type thread where we chat about everything Old Style and maybe a little bit more. It’s a great, inspiring and motivating thread we start each day to discuss what Old Style things we’re going to do today or what we’ve achieved already. Everyone’s welcome, please do come in, put your feet up (although check the fence hasn’t just been painted first!) and join us for an Old Style natter. The more the merrier!

    As this is the Old Style Board, it would be appreciated if posts could include some Old Style content. Please be aware that many people may have small screens, or SLOW internet connections, so please don’t post large pictures, or clip art – links are preferred. When you make a post, if you feel like giving it a title, that will help others that don’t have the time to read everything skim through the thread quickly but if not it's not a problem. Please do not start a new daily thread before you go to bed at night because this often leaves things confusing with two daily threads live at the same time. The idea is that a member would start each new daily thread after they get up in the morning.

    taff- thanks, I'm feeling properly human for the first time in over a week. I've cleaned all three bathrooms, tidied the living room and made a start on the kitchen. Steve's been keeping it ticking over but there are crusty bits on lots of the handles - I don't know why he doesn't wash his hands before he grabs a handle!

    Hi chums ,not a nice day today wet and a bit windy as well.Started off badly with the dreadful news from NZ, I feel for those poor folk and their families .

    H/Harvey fingers crossed all will go to plan with the r/therapy for you. The machines at Maidstone Hospital kept breaking down when I had it in 2008 Three machines going for 12-15 hours a day it's hardly surprising .Then one day we had all to wait until the chap fixed it as apparently back then you had to have the daily r/therapy for 6 weeks without a break and if you missed one for what ever reason you had to start the course all over again so there were about 15 people ,like me waiting it out the nurses were really nice though and made sure we all had tea and sandwiches to keep us going .In the large waiting room there was a long table with a 2.500. piece jigsaw and everyone who was having treatment would do a bit while we waited and it was great to see it slowly building up over the weeks I have everything crossed for you and I'm sure all will go to plan.

    History was really good today we did boating accidents on the river Thames. The Princess Alice in 1878 and the Marchioness in 1989. Both caused by human error sadly.

    My youngest DGS Mikey did hs mock GCSE this morning in English (his school do the english ones for some pupils a year early, he isn't 15 until June ) and he said it was OK and he thought he did alright. His actuals are in May.

    I hope the weather brightens up a bit as the wind is really chilly today. I have some baking to do tomorrow and I may do my first shop of the month tonight as I have been eating from the freezer and mainly only need fresh fruit and veg and a few other odds and ends. Only three weeks until our spring break on the Isle of Wight so hopefully it will be a bit warmer then.

    Hope you all have a good weekend

    Cheers chums JackieO xx

  • No its completely wrong. Your contract is with the shop that you bought it off. The staff at o2 should be better?

  • PLS SHARE - WARNING DO NOT USE VIAGOGO. A group of MPs have today echo'd my own warning about the secondary tick?

  • RT @MartinSLewis: I've had a few messages from people concerned that they've bought tickets from Viagogo and they heard my cautionary warni?
