No secret Steph - just illness ; I can't stop being sick (and no, I ain't pregnant!); been to Drs twice, and they are trying me on antibiotics


Great that I've lost weight so easily  ; but probably not the best way to do it really!

No secret Steph - just illness ; I can't stop being sick (and no, I ain't pregnant!); been to Drs twice, and they are trying me on antibiotics


Great that I've lost weight so easily  ; but probably not the best way to do it really!  


Sorry to hear that Maxine.  Just hope that the Dr's will sort you out soon.

Well my husbands side of the family are going through a bad time with health issues.  His mum has just been dianoised with breast cancer and she is going in today to have her breast removed.  Also John's brother in law had a stroke last year and since then he's been have seizures on a more regular basis, the last one happened this weekend.  He's having to go into hospital for a cat scan to see if anything can be done.  So it's not a good time at the moment.  But our health service over here is very good so we don't expect any problems.

Holy sh1t Steph. That's alot to take in. It often seems to come all at once, and I don't think it makes it easier, in fact, I feel it makes it worse.

Can't offer much to you - and not gonna gush with BS; but hope that they both will be OK, and I'll keep my fingers crossed for a good long term prognosis for them both...

I got Hot Water by Level 42 played... they said it was "requests" but each OMD song I asked for they hadn't got, so I then went for 2 Level42s - and the DJ (Kev Lawrence) said "How about Hot Water, I've got that"


Some request!

But I like it - so didn't mind too much!!

Had a crazy experience today!

I was at a loose end in town, and happened to poke my nose into a church - no spiritual reason, just noseying. There was an orchestra and choir plus soloists inside rehearsing for a concert; they were playing Mozart's Requiem, so slipped in the back for ten mins to listen - didn't think they'd mind.

Anyway, a man came up and asked me if I'd mind helping with the teas for their interval! So I ended up brewing tea and coffee for a 60-strong orchestra and singers. Very interesting! It was their final rehearsal before their concert tonight, so I hope it went well! Bought a programme as a souvenir.

Yes, what a nice story.  We have quite a good community spirit here on the island, when there is an event on, everyone mucks in, albeit taking place in it or working on the side lines.

I did somthing last night that I have not done, in many many years... I was in bed for 11.45pm !!! OUCH....
But felt a lot better to-day.... Got an imense amount of pressure on me at the moment, but this should all go in a couple of days...
I am excited, I am scared, but I know that many things are going to be right, very soon... Funny, that I have had a good good vibe for this year, and it just can not be as crap as last year...

No, thank god!  I've seen that ship before in port and to tell you the truth it looks like it needs a refit even though it supposed to be new.  Must of been really scary for the passengers.  We have a multitude of different cruise lines coming to the island and it seems more are looking to visit as well.  All very good for the island revenue.

Actually we had the Freedom of the Seas (the biggest cruise liner in the world) pass our shores during the week and its huge.  To big for my liking though.

I got a number of CDs like that. Got one with bird song on it and used to play it at work. Finally after a week or so one of my co-workers came by and said: So this is where the bird noise is coming from  

Sometimes I put on one of those CDs when I go to bed. Drowns out the noise that are coming in from outside

Well, Maxine, of course I'd prefer sunny and warm, but in the face of adversity it always seems best to me to treat the whole thing as a bit of an adventure.   I remember many many years ago navigating my Dad up a wrong road and the road turned onto a grass track. In the true spirit of adventure, my Dad carried on until it was impossible to drive any further - just to see where it went! So much better than getting cross.

Isn't it sad though, that there are very few people who would do this - most would just get cross...  

My hubby's very much like that - so laid back sometimes, he's almost horizontal - and I like that!!!

My Dad was actually not laid back at all, Maxine. His nicknames were things like "Kamikazee" (no idea how to spell that, sorry!), "Demolition man" (thanks to his DIY skills...), and so on. He had his fingers in many pies and was always on the go, but usually with good humour!

I can change a plug and deal with fuse boards quite well.


Helps that my Dad's a sparky, and taught me at a very young age - well, OK, not very but I was nine or ten.....

Thanks Dad!

I'm not very confident with electrics. You may have noticed my new header "don't touch me or I may explode"....
Well, I was trying to cook for Neil a few weeks ago and my kettle blew up with a loud bang , shorted all the sockets in my kitchen, utility room and bedroom.

First reaction - fall about laughing.

Second reaction - get takeaway (Neil's idea, for which I was very grateful!).

Third reaction - next morning "oh S**t", when I realised my freezer was on that circuit...

Had to be brave and reset the trip switch - nothing else bad happened.

Sounds like fun Sandra! You must be full of volts or something!

Takeaway often works well in those kind of instances - but you should have got Neil to reset the trip!!!!

Lucky you!!!!

My darling husband says he "can't cook"; although I don't know how he knows that, cos he's never tried (well, not since I've been with him anyway!!! )

I don't mind really though - I enjoy cooking; and leave the DIY to him!!!

I used to cook a lot, but really got out of the habit since my child does not like food very much in general. I got weary of scraping uneaten meals into the bin...   She's happy with exciting meals like pasta and butter...  
we still do pancakes each weekend, though  
And when I cook for Neil, things start exploding...

Well I do know of a butchers that was in Old Traford a couple of years ago where you could get the bacon with the rind on, and chops with the rind on - lovely  
Not sure if they are still there though, had to move three times since then

My life is passing before my eyes.....

Once I get comfortable in front of the PC, I find it difficult to interrupt things to cook. So tend to eat what's in reach of the armchair. Should aim at 3 proper meals a week, but something gives.

I love to have a chinese takeaway on a Saturday evening.  We just have the one each week as our treat, rest of the time the half does the cooking

I wouldn't say I cook one every Sunday. but I do probably do at least one a month....

Even something as simple as roast chicken, new spuds, new carrots and garden peas goes down well with hubby.....

I do all the exotic cooking, curry, bolognaise etc,, mrs corky does the roasties and that, though with working late i don't cookas often as i used to.

little tip for you bolognaise eaters. When you prepare the mince, fry it in a little soy sauce and basil. You won't believe the difference. Trust corky. you know you should....


I do all my own ironing too.

(see previous post re: irons & mrs corky....)

For our tea we went to a well liked pub near Heswall that we hadn't been to for about a year. How does Brie, mushroom and Cranberry parcels with Herb Mash, Burger with relish and choccy mousse cake with double cream sound?

It was very nice, beleive me! and a quiet evening for a change.

Washed down with filter coffee and a pint of Boddies. Heaven.

For our tea we went to a well liked pub near Heswall that we hadn't been to for about a year. How does Brie, mushroom and Cranberry parcels with Herb Mash, Burger with relish and choccy mousse cake with double cream sound?

It was very nice, beleive me! and a quiet evening for a change.

Washed down with filter coffee and a pint of Boddies. Heaven.


Hmmmmmmmmm, , not really my cup of tea to be honest..... and I'd rather have 2 pints than a coffee!

I do all the exotic cooking, curry, bolognaise etc,, mrs corky does the roasties and that, though with working late i don't cookas often as i used to.

little tip for you bolognaise eaters. When you prepare the mince, fry it in a little soy sauce and basil. You won't believe the difference. Trust corky. you know you should....


I do all my own ironing too.

(see previous post re: irons & mrs corky....)


Sorry chaps - got way behind with this thread as my daughter is on half term holidays.
Corky, if you like basil you will adore lovage!  
Mmmmm  
It's fab in meaty sauces of all kinds, and soups.

Got some growing in my garden.

Not exactly... it was a VERY long time ago. I used to go and stay at my grandparents a lot, but they eventually moved to a flat in sheltered housing, with panic button/warden function room etc. Anyway, I was basically accused of robbing old ladies because I won too many times when I went to the Bingo with my Grandma. So I was told I couldn't play any more  
(Didn't pinch any balls, though - honest   )

It surprises me sometimes to read things like this, it kinda seems like the "dark ages". Having said that - I'm not saying it's a bad thing at all - perhaps something like that over here would start to curb the "problems" the UK has with gambling etc...

The seaside places would suffer though!!!!

Its one of those things that if you don't have them in the first place, then you don't know what you are missing.  The only time I play on those one arm bandits is when I'm on the cruise and then I only play on those which don't cost a fortune to play.  I play for fun and do easily get bored after a while, thats why I like blackjack its more fun.

like me you're brain probably still works in pre-decimal figures, but do you remember tanners, farthings, three-penny bits, half-pennies, shillings, 10-bob notes, half-crowns and crowns, pound notes, lbs and ozs, no-6, no-10's, 5 park drive (with matches), coffee in sachets, milk in bags, proper bacon, chandlers, cobblers, real vinegar, double-yoke eggs, golden wonder crisps, lucky bags that cost 3d, when calculators were first allowed in schools and the time when you said you'd give up smoking when ciggies got to a 1 for a packet of 20. i could go on.

I don't remember the pre-decimal money, when it started in 1971 I was only 3 (so yes, I was born in 1968 and am the grand old age of 38!!!)

However, I DO remember:- pound notes, lbs and ozs (and still use them!), milk in bottles, proper bacon, cobblers, real vinegar, double yoke eggs

AND

Feet and inches (still use them!), clackers (which were banned cos girly kids hurt their wrists using them), washing machines with mangles on the top of them, Policemen on the beat, 1p bags of chips, scraps with chips, times when knives were used for cutting up food, Rubiks cubes, The Tube, The Old grey Whistle Test, vinyl, black and white TV, 3 TV channels, Radio Caroline, Radio Luxemburg, Radio Atlantic 252, Mr Angry from Steve Wright in the afternoon (loved him!!!), "Our Tune" with Simon Bates (I was on that once!! ), Space Dust, The Clangers, Trumpton, Camberwick Green ....... and I too could go on...!!!

Anyone else wanna be all nostalgic with us???

When I was 6 years old I used to get 6d pocket money, which was a lovely shiny silver coin then.  
(When I was 7 I was sent to bed at 7pm, but I can't remember the pocket money!)

Our generation were the lucky ones that got to learn both decimal and imperial - sure it still makes a difference.

Our family home's still got the old pre-washing machine mangle! A bit rickety!

You can still get those thrown in!

Quoted from NeilT
Tell us Maxine.... I missed this...



Neil you wouldn't have, it was a looooooooooooooong time ago. It was in 1992. Basically, I wrote this letter, never intending to send it off, about my experiences with my family, friends etc when I broke my neck. I just spilled it onto paper to try to get it out of my head IYKWIM? It was also a kind of thank you to my parents for all the support they gave at that time (while I was being a complete to them (althought there were genuine reasons for it)). The song I chose was "You'll Never Walk Alone" cos my parents made me feel at that time, that even if everyone else walked away, they wouldn't/didn't - so thanks to them I never would walk alone....

Anyway I sent it off and thought there'd be no way they'd use it because in those days all it was was broken relationships and broken heart stories, but I got home from work one day, and my mum looked very puzzled and said "someone from Radio One rang, it's going to be used on Wednesday" - so I took a blank cassette to work and taped it; then I left it out when I went to bed for mum and dad to listen to....

Lots of people rang and said it had them in tears because it was so "raw" and "from the heart" - and  both my Mum and Dad were very touched by it, that I'd "taken the time to do that for them."

Sad I guess, but I still have the tape..and I'll never tape over it. It's humbling sometimes to look back on life, it can help balance things up.

Now perhaps you all understand why I have so much time for my parents.......  

Anyway, enough of that.....

It helped me at the time too sandra - although the letter was sent to Simon Bates, I didn't know him so I was kind of offloading to a stranger IYKWIM?

Can't listen to You'll Never Walk Alone without a lump in my throat, or, if in the "wrong" frame of mind... tears!

Pillock!! I know!!!!

Good to see a little smile along with the blushes, Maxine.  
Here's a big one back:
Hope you had a fab weekend.  
BTW I get lumps in my throat about all sorts of things, but like to feel I'm non the worse for it. I'm glad you have good memories of your mum and dad.

I don't drink as much coffee as I used to, and I think I'm better for it. I aim for 3 cups per day as a limit.

There's nothing like a superJava splurge on a Sunday morning, though - just once in a while.

I still enjoy the odd "real ale", having happy memories of the Norwich beer festival  
That kind of beer is best tasted not TOO cold...
Hate warm lager, though.

I'm still at work, watching it on a tiny TV and to be honest, it looks as though we wouldn't score if we played with 3 balls and Trinidad took all their players off.......

Never mind, theres always 2010.

Can someone help me out here? If England are though to the next round, does that mean they have reached the quarter finals, or is there another round to go?

cheers

I think the quarter finals are the last 8.  The semi finals are the last 4, so England have to wing it through the next stage to reach the quarters. I think. Maybe.


  I think, therefore I usually get it wrong.

We're through to the last 16, which is the knockout stage, then we get the Quarters.
A wins a win, even if it was unconvincing and to be honest though i have watched a few good games no-one stands out as a potential winner to me yet.

Roll on Tuesday!! (Waves St Georges flag at everyone. Or I would if i had one....)
