    Oh bless mohc!

    We only have the one son, who had some very 'errant' moments in his time and now is a higher tax payer with a lovely wife and to gorgeous daughters, but I still remember the day he left home for uni, couldn't drive, had to pull over and sob! We still call the 'spare' bedroom, is room. sending hugs, . mind you I generally love the days when my Dh is out, alough some day even now I feel lost and lonely

    When he first left home after uni to go to his first job up north I did got slightly bats - he had been at college and uni locally so he still lived at home so we were used to him being around - actually he was doing 3 days of uni, 2 working days and 2 days walking or climbing or kayaking etc plus 4 nights a week with ATC or college so he wasn't at home very much except to eat, shower and sleep. It was just the finality of the final youngest child leaving home.

    OH has been home on sick leave for a week, mostly he has been very helpful where he can - realising I am keeping busy so I don't have time to think. And keeping out of my way when I am in the midst of doing something that needs concentration.
    But getting the new phone has left me exasperated!

    Eldest child left home when she was 18 - long story. But she still has her bedroom despite the rarity of her visits. Eldest son also now sleeps there when he comes home as the boys room is not fit for human habitation

    I'm sorry I'm so stressed & was in a hurry I didn't word this well.



    Sorry, No that's not what I mean, I didn't explain it well. Their garden (very small yard) is all of 5 feet from us, I was concerned about my cats getting hit I don't want to cause trouble, I was worried about my pets



    Again sorry I've haven't worded this well. I have no objection to shooting as such. It's just such a small yard (approx 10' x 4') to be shooting in. He is firing against a wall & they ping off into our gardens
    I myself have done target shooting.
    I was just concerned about my pets getting hurt being so close.

    Sorry to have offended

    Have you seen the campaign/info Cats Protection are currently running to put pressure on the Government to update the law on air guns.

    They want to bring us in line with Scotland and Northern Ireland, bringing in air gun licensing

    It drives me bats that payments are not made on the 1st of a month if its a weekend or a bank holiday

    I would instead write a letter outlining the initial problem, including the long delay you had getting to your online account and also todays problems plus the length of time you were on the phone and the derisory amount you were offered as compensation.

    Sometimes a letter will escalate things.

    (I got 5 credit from Eon for the problems I had including been held in an endless phone queue)

    Thank you for your patience,.. 'i'm not patient now'!!..
    Yep
    the letter will be written

    oh pants

    We only went to Mr T this morning with a huge bag for the food bank collection.
    I got the Ribena and tyrells for GJ - also got my free lenor, very happy with this.

    I also looked for Venus as one version is on GJ but I cant figure out which one and I don't think our store sells it anyway

    OH decided it was about to rain so he raced about mowing the bottom paddock, then came in for a shower and he is now in his pyjamas (he calls them a lounge suit but its def pjs) at 3 in the afternoon, OMG - if that is what retirement is like ...
