Good morning ,afternoon or evening depending where you’re clicking from.

As always a warm welcome to any new members who are dropping by.

So, I was trying to think of something different to write, looking for inspiration from somewhere, the lap-top is off line, because the phone which tethers it is in the kitchen re-charging. I flicked through the photos and found this. It was posted not too long ago by one of our members, Bonnielala. I found that it has a truly calming effect if you read it slowly. All too often when I read posts from members in difficulty, I get the impression that they are in such a hurry that they can no longer isolate the problems and tackle them one at a time. Quitting takes time and patience. It just can’t be hurried.

I wish you all a fantastic Friday.

Good morning tubbs, and anyone else clicking in.

What a very apt verse that is tubbs,for this community,and your right of course, so I went back to read it slowly, and the Midge Ure song to go with it!

Wishing you tubbs, and everyone else a beautiful smoke🚭free Friday.

Good morning Tubby and Wiggles 🐕‍🦺

Very good opening to the day, thank you.

Well I am off to the docs this morning (if they can squeeze me in)

I have a swollen shoulder (bursa) so I havent slept very well. :(

I think its just painkillers or cortizone injection I need, but better get checked out.

Otherwise not doing much its a very rainy grey day here in Yorkshire.

Catch up later. :) xxx

Good morning Twinnie L , Jillygirl and Don 😁

After a beautiful sunny and warm day yesterday I woke up to heavy rain this morning. Regardless though I have to go out and pick some chillies then decide what food to put them in.

Bonnielala’s thought provoking observations do indeed have a calming effect. For me it’s taking a deep breath and getting things in perspective. In the early days of quitting this helped as it calmed down the panics and it is still relevant now.

I hope you get to see your doctor Jilly. You don’t want to go into the weekend in pain.

Good morning Twinnie Sue. I've just got back from shopping for the furries😸😻. Special offers on what they like. Now I've still got 2 trips to get it out of the car. It's already 29° so I might well melt in the attempt.🙄🙄🙄😋XXX

Morning Tubbygal, I’m bagging stuff up for charity shop and going crazy with the amount of stuff I’ve accumulated. I can’t move for clutter.

Temperature is 23 deg but with this mornings rain it is really sticky so I’m getting irritable.

Better crack on because I’ve pulled stuff in front of my bedroom door and I will need to go to bed sometime tonight. 😝

Good morning droopy,I stopped being in a hurry when I ended up in a wheelchair.When you depend on other people to do things or even get to places,you just have to put your mind to rest.............

Have a good Friday.

Been to doctors. Arthritis in shoulder, but had to get an x ray as he wanted the bones checking. He gave me some muscle rub 3 to 4 times a day.

Now I have a new prob. We got taxi down to the hospital to go get the x ray done.

All sorted 👍 then I realised I had left my phone in the taxi. 😫 so now I am waiting at home for the taxi firm to phone me back.

I am off to get a cuppa before I scream ! :) xxx

Hello all,

Managed to stay warm today, hubby took a group up to the snow. He reckons it was the scariest drive he has done for a few years.

Bit of a sad day for me. One of my best friends from my teenage years has been diagnosed with small cell cancer and was initially given months to live which has since been reduced to weeks. I am off home to say my goodbye to her as her hubby contacted me and told me she wants to see me before she passes. Off home tomorrow for a few days.
