    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.

    I see Ringo has been given a Knighthood for banging his own drum.

    Starr will join his bandmate Sir Paul McCartney as a knight, 52 years after receiving an MBE.

    Sir Paul was knighted in 1997 but, according to the Sun on Sunday, Starr, 77, had given up hope of a further honour until a letter arrived from the Palace several weeks ago.

    The knighthood will be awarded for services to music and charity.

    I expect they practice focussing on things.

    Also, although non-verbal thoughts, they know when they are cold, hot, wet, hungry, don't they!


    I don't know how old I was, but I can remember a time when I couldn't think to myself, in terms of the voice in your head, etc., and couldn't understand how other people could.

    Then one day I found I could.

    Wish I could remember what age I was.

    I cannot believe that another friend has had to have their dog put to sleep. That's 3 in the last month. They say things come in 3's, I hope this is the last of it now

    RIP Shelley age 14
    RIP Alice age 9
    RIP Toby age 7

    Wow, this forum is fantastic, you are all so welcoming.

    Therefore my thought of the day is that despite being a newbie I feel like I have belonged here a long time. Thank y'all

    I'm beginning to think 2018 will be a bad year for my family.

    Just had one cousin die from cancer and now another cousin's husband is not expected to live through the night.

    As I said previously, life is shoite.

    Why is "Mrs. Brown's Boys" called "Mrs. Brown's Boys" when she has a daughter as well?

    I think itís because of Kathy's complaint that Agnes makes far more fuss of 'her boys' than she does of Kathy.

    Cliche of the Irish mam, also applies to Welsh mam.

    My thoughts are how grateful I am that I found this place when I was in a really bad place & that I met some lovely supportive people.

    My life is completely different now & I'm in a really good place but I do miss the chats & laughs we used to have.

    I'm commenting blind here, but my guess would be that not everyone knows the history between other folk or, in the case of MSE, everyone's posting history, so if someone's nice in one thread, they might not realise they've been nasty in other threads.
