    O/S Daily Wednesday 19 April 2017

    This is an !!!8220;over the garden fence!!!8221; type thread where we chat about everything Old Style and maybe a little bit more. It!!!8217;s a great, inspiring and motivating thread we start each day to discuss what Old Style things we!!!8217;re going to do today or what we!!!8217;ve achieved already. Everyone!!!8217;s welcome, please do come in, put your feet up (although check the fence hasn!!!8217;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!!!8217;t post large pictures, or clip art !!!8211; links are preferred. When you make a post, if you feel like giving it a title, that will help others that don!!!8217;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.

    Morning everyone

    Hugs to those that want/need one x

    Happy birthday to those with a birthday x

    DH up and gone to work stupid stupid early, DS1 now getting ready for work and DS2 still in his pit, will wake him shortly.

    Now light, blue sky but cold and slight frost. Will peg the washing out shortly.

    Dinner last night was LO beef cooked in gravy, pork steaks, mash, cauli in cheese sauce, peas, LO yorkshires, I had extra veg with mine, as trying to up the veg intake. Tonight will be an easy fish, chips/jacket pot, beans/veg, all easy after a busy day at work.

    Yesterday work was manic, with people off sick, and it really showed that whilst we can just about cope with the staffing at the levels management have set, as soon as someone is off sick or as we saw yesterday something unexpected happens, ie, a General Election is announced when no-one was expecting it! It has a major effect on us - this is really going to be even worse than we already thought as with General Elections more people want to vote, the amount of work created just yesterday from the announcement was noticable!

    Can't wait until the end of today - time off!

    Keep safe and well x

    nmlc x

    Dumpling - I would have asked my friend to take her dog outside if it was jumping up on me.

    Just my twopenn'orth, but personally I think the dog should be attending training classes; certainly should have learned basic "sit" and "stay" and be able to do them. It's not the dog's fault - if he's never been taught what's acceptable, he can't be expected to know - but bringing him to someone else's house and just letting him run riot is totally unacceptable imho.

    We have another Staffie booking for later in the year - she came for her meet'n'greet visit, and settled down quietly so very quickly that her owner asked me if I was a Dog Whisperer!
    If your dog thinks you're the best, don't seek a second opinion.
