Good Morning, Good Morning...

Hi there Sleepy Heads...

Tee hee, that's a joke on me, as it's usually my name, I struggle with mornings. Not because I don't like them - just that my head doesn't wake up for a couple of hours after I get up.

And that was the same when I was still a working lass, I was there physically, but my head was still in bed! It's just the way we're made I guess.

I've only just caught up with all yesterday's blogs and news, as I was out n about 'till late.

My, what a lot goes on in a short time, can't respond to everyone's blogs, but it's good to read them all.

Day 18 in this house and still don't want a ciggie. - the craving hasn't gone by a long shot, but I just genuinely don't seem to want to puff smoke... very weird!

For every one here struggling with other stuff in their lives... Hospitals and family illnesses, sadnesses etc. Please realise how much help you give to me and others here... Not sure I would have the patience and generousity to do that everyday. (I would likely still be full of the "poor me's"). So, thank you to the ones who still care to help the struggling Smokers who are trying to stop.

Well, well - wot's up er then? No snow today! Spring... Er, shout a bit louder you lucky folks in the balmy Mediterranean South.. and we might hear those longed for words up here... Spring, Summer - do they exist? - Wow, that's good to know! I've got so used to living in a grey sky day, it's a bit like having a Pan Lid on your head all the time.

Right Oh... That's my little rant for the day... I've woken up now!

On with the practicing non smoker for another day...

Stay safe and well everyone - and no Faggies... Okay?

Very foggy here cannot see the field on the other side of the road.

Know what you mean about illness Gillyflower. Went on a website run by macmillan for cancer patients but only was on this for a couple of days, everyone was so down and that is not want I needed as I felt sorry enough for myself thinking why me. I then found this site and have been on since beginning of March. I have gotten more from this site from day 1 as not only do people help with the problem (stopping smoking) but also are there to support in other areas as well. Cannot thank people enough don't know where I would have been without them, I was as low as I could possibly get and definitely would still have been smoking. Still enough of the misery.

Have you retired Gillyflower, sorry if you haven't and are a lot younger. I am 60 this year and need to make that decision. I love my job but hubby retired and I have 6 grandchildren aged 6 months to 5 years. If I stay at work until my retirement age of 65 they will all be at school or not wanting to see Nana as they will be out with their friends and I can never get this time back again. My dad died three years ago and I really miss him, we were very close, and know that it is impossible to go back and there are regrets there, don't want to do this with grandchildren.

Thank you for reading this and take care. Keep smiling suecx

Hi Simba, all I can say is retire enjoy those grandchildren :) we so long and so hard in this day and age we end up missing out on what really matters and as you've said we cannot get that time back. There will always be work,there wont always be time to enjoy the people we love. I and my boys have just lost a very special person in our lives their dad and my life partner,yes we were divorced but it only brought us closer,he used to say a bit of paper means nothing,it cant turn the heart on or off ,how right he was. It's been 2 weeks and feels like yesterday. it was very sudden and how I wish i'd had more time. Retire and enjoy those grandkids befor they are off to school .xx

Gillyflower,well done on 18 days ,I think the wanting and the cravings are two different things,and its great you don't want. You're doing brilliant with those cravings keep kicking them x

I am so sorry, my dad was very sudden and unexpected and this is what takes us so long to come to terms with. My hubby's parents were both ill for many years and you come to terms with what might happen in those circumstances. I am thinking and praying for you and your boys. Thank you for your advice. Even though you are going through such a lot yourself you can still keep giving advice, thank you again. Please take care lots of love sucx

Dear Thenunn. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts are with you during this very dificult time :-(

My Mum died 21 years ago when I was 27. She had not been ill and went in a blink of an eye. There is some comfort to know that she didn't suffer with a prolonged illness but the shock was deverstating. Sadly she died when things were very bad in my life but I hope she knows that I'm ok now.

For TheNunn

One day at a time... that's all we ever have really. I know some of what you're going through... 11 years ago I was in the same place.

Just look after you and your boys for now, and take each day REAL EASY... that's very, very important,

Gill, xx

What's brown and sticky? A stick.

Where do you find a dog with no legs? Right where you left him.

What do you call a cow with no legs? Ground beef.

What do you call a cow with 2 legs? Lean beef.

Have you heard about the three-star restaurant on the Champs-Élysées that makes omelets with only one egg? Apparently in Paris, one egg is un oeuf.

Extreme Weight Loss Program

A guy calls a company and orders their 5-day, 10 lb. weight loss program.

The next day, there's a knock on the door and there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic, babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign around her neck.

She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign reads, "If you can catch me, you can have me."

Without a second thought, he takes off after her. A few miles later puffing and puffing, he finally gives up. The same girl shows up for the next four days and the same thing happens. On the fifth day, he weighs himself and is delighted to find he has lost 10 lbs. as promised.

He calls the company and orders their 5-day/20 pound program.

The next day there's a knock at the door and there stands the most stunning, beautiful, sexy woman he has ever seen in his life. She is wearing nothing but Reebok running shoes and a sign around her neck that reads, "If you catch me you can have me".

Well, he's out the door after her like a shot. This girl is in excellent shape and he does his best, but no such luck. So for the next four days, the same routine happens with him gradually getting in better and better shape. Much to his delight on the fifth day when he weighs himself, he discovers that he has lost another 20 lbs. as promised.

He decides to go for broke and calls the company to order the 7-day/50 pound program. "Are you sure?" asks the representative on the phone. "This is our most rigorous program."

"Absolutely," he replies, "I haven't felt this good in years."

The next day there's a knock at the door; and when he opens it he finds a huge muscular guy standing there wearing nothing but running shoes and a sign around his neck that reads, "If I catch you, you're mine."

He lost 63 pounds that week.

A man's outside mowing his lawn, the young blonde next door neighbour comes check her post box then goes back inside, she does this again and again, each time getting angrier, the next time she checks she kicks the box in temper

the man is curious so asks her why she's doing this, she replies " my computer keeps telling me i have mail"

Hi all, the weather here is dull and drab today, it's not doing anything

Well done Gill on 18 days, your a star :)

sorry that i'm probably missing things out today, my concentration is right out the window today, it's taken me forever to type this, it's that bad :(

I hope your all having a good day :) xx

Hello John, hope you are well and that Vida and Amor are behaving for you. i hope that you can post one of your lovely music on the site please. suecx

Hi all you lovely people

John, reading back, and it sounds like your Vida and Amor are more trouble than these kitties stomping all over everything I do. I love them, though. Do you think we have a lot of animal/bird/ lovers on this site - I think so :)

I love all those jokes :). I need to print them out or write them down, got a terrible memory, and would love to be able to tell some.

And I hope that you all have a good evening - whoah, I mean night! No wonder I am so hungry - best get off and get some tea!

Hi John , No good just going to have to send my granddaughters to your house. 8yr old loves the music and dancing. and the 11yr old loves your love birds or any other pets come to that. :)

Precious companions. What sort of birds are they?

As a child we always had budgies, sometimes in the cage, when windows and doors had to be open, but flying free a lot. They were lovely. They made me laugh, they would come on my finger or shoulder and puff up their faces and chatter, nodding their heads up and down. Later wandering over my homework and games pecking at my pencil.

You brought back some happy memories from childhood. Too many cats around to ever have birds now!
