Bank Holiday Weekend

Well... on a lighter note, I hope everyone enjoys the bank holiday weekend.

It looks as though we are to be blessed with great weather instead of the normal bank holiday down pour.

I think a BBQ may be in order.

Best get the BECKS BLUE in!!!

Hope you all have a good weekend and those symptoms give us all a break!

Jo42 liked your reply Haha Ive done some research after getting the 'bubbles'!! :)

BECKS BLUE ehh? would that be a new type of charcoal??

If it does happen to be a beverage (I have no idea actually) I hope that it doesn't have any bubbles in it! Actually, sorry guys but I don't have any bubbles personally so I can't comment on what you are all going through but I echo Matt's wishes, pack a suitcase for those symptoms and try to enjoy the Bank Holiday xx

Hi Millie

hope that you are enjoying the weekend, weather not fantastic here but oh well, at least I wasn't going abroad and having to spend hours at the airport, got some nice walks in with the dog anyway, good job as she bullies me mercilessly if I don't take her out.

Popping to see my mum tomorrow, she wasn't too good the other day as she thought that she was the king and that I was her brother, so I guess that makes me royalty!

Whatever you've got planned, hope it's a good one for you.

Hi Lottie! Hope you are well. I have loved the weather but that all stopped last night 😏. Mind you I can't sit n the sun too much as it makes me tired and I get tired as it is .

Oh the thought of airport ques 😣.its not so bad going it's the coming back I can't stand

Thats nice to go for lovely walks with your dog . I have three cats so they do their own thing but I am sure they rule the roost lol.

Sorry to hear about your mum bless her . I know what you mean there as to regards with my dad .

I have not been anywhere, just with my neighbour next door keeps popping in and out as we are both doing a bit of DIY . Nice to hear from you 😊.. enjoy what's left of the bank holiday. Take care..linda xxx

Hi Millie

hope that you're having a good week, weather has been a little hit and miss here but generally ok

I have being doing the usual stuff, visiting mum, walking the dog, I actually took her into the home with me and the other ladies in there loved her, she was very good and sat on my mum's knee for a while being fed chicken bits.

Nothing too exciting I'm afraid. Am in a bit of a quandary really to be a little more serious. Have been offered a local job at a supermarket. My health is ok at the moment but should I take it, what if I have a relapse and the jaundice comes back ? I know in my head that I can't live my life in fear of that but it is forever present. Anyway, what's the viable alternative I have applied for ESA and been called for a medical assessment but I understand that these can be absolutely horrendous and that I ironically, won't be ill enough to qualify. (Not that I am complaining), All I do know for certain is that I need to do something my saving are dwindling at an alarming rate just keeping the house going.

Anyway, hope that you are doing ok and that cats are behaving themselves.

Lottie xx

It's gonna be a lovely one, I was never really a beer drinker, I was never much of a drinker at all to be fair but I did enjoy a nice single malt every now and then. Can't see them ever producing a non-al version that my taste buds wouldn't reject immediately and never talk to me again so I think I'll stick with the fruit juice. Lol

Hope you and everyone else has a great weekend.

Stay safe

Nope you've lost me on those ones. I went to a great sweet shop in New York. Dylan's candy store for anyone interested, if you love sweets and you're in the city it's a must visit. They had a load of retro sweets on the basement floor, yes that's right it's a sweet shop spread over floors! Just thinking of it I want to go back. They still had the little bags of gold rush for anyone that remembers them?

gold rush, not from Dakota are you ?

British to me bones me. Well I'm part Haribo too

Reply

could be like one of those sci fi films where haribos have rustled their way out of a bag at night and slithered into your ear canals and taken you over, I had my suspicions from the first

Sorry to say serves you right for leaving bag unattended ...

By way, you will find haribos listed on any NHS site under infection control - lol

Reply

I will seek guidance bout organising an intervention, oops, don't think I'm supposed to let you know that

Reply

As long as it's catered with Haribo

Reply

new York, catered - ooh I love a posh boy !! shame about the haribo addiction

Reply

do you have major shares in haribo or is it just a not so private obsession ??

Reply

I wouldn't say it's an obsession. More of an appreciation. Lol

save it for the judge x
