  1. I have prescription glasses for reading/computer work too, my arms just aren't long enough any more...

    I do possess a couple of prs of the cheapy ones at 1.25 strength, in cases, to live in the car/in my bag, as then I always have a pair around when needed!! Just a thought!!

  2. I was 33 when I had ES, and 36 with DD, so yep, done that!!

    It's like falling off a log.. But....

    It's great, as you have the patience of years to fall back on, and aren't so swayed by the latest missive form expert..

    Enjoy your babies, I did!!

    Have to say am not enjoying 18 yr old teen boy Quite as nuch at the moment!! But its all a No box, no instructions sort of thing, as I have never had to deal with a teenage boy before, and he hasn't either!!

  3. My next door neighbour has DD doing childrens nursing at Cardiff. The teaching hospital is close enough she can stay in her rooms for her placements out, so avoiding additional costs, and she's loving it. She has people in Plymouth doing same thing, and having to book B+b 's Jst a thought.. Well done Rosie, My ES is doing 2nd yr A levels x4 in math/science, and the workload is much higher than gcse

  4. Ouch. I've had it, and remember the pain too vividly. It does go away, eventually. I wore really decent supportive trainers, as I stand and trot about all day at work, the decent footwear does help. And put them up in the eve, if at all possible. i soaked mine every night in a bowl of lovely warm water too.. Don't know whether it made a difference, but it felt nice!

  5. Great thread!!

    In Order!

    My kids, my husband, my animals and fowl, My health.

    My stunningly lovely, and so much loved dog, after 18 years of waiting!

    Good friends.

    Living in the country, near the sea.

    Sunshine, and a bit of blue sky if possible.

    Dry fluffy socks after having wet feet!

    A good book, and time to read it!

  6. I watched it, but felt that as usual, the writer took the easy way out, where everything neatly ended up ok for all parties, except the poor Mrs Carl, who has not been let off so lightly, but expected to just accept everything, as usual.. Weak writing, and pathetic plotline. Glad I was doing something else at the same time,

  7. I've just finished a large cushion cover, in a chequer pattern, and it's come out pretty well!! I prefer crochet, but liked the pattern so out came the knitting needles!! Might get a pic later!!

    Also made some wrist/arm warmers for DD with a bit of leftover wool, in a pretty moss stitch('cos it's easy!!)

  8. Simon, and his attribute are still together, and well and Dandy.. Sensible and older now, as we all are, :lol: , perhaps he will see this thread sometime in the next few days... It'll be interesting to see if he braves a re take!!

  9. Welcome to the mad world of hen keeping!!

    You do know that the disease known medically as "Morehens" is showing it's symptoms in you already, as a cube will hold up to 10 birds...... :lol:

    Nice grass.. take lots of pics of that, to remind yourself in future times....

  10. I lived in South Africa in the 80's, as segregation broke down, it was an interesting time for me, as I was white, European, with no political views .

    I worry for Africa now he has gone, because whilst he was alive, the supposed power brokers have had to behave. There could be trouble ahead.

    S.A is a magnificent country;I hope it survives this loss.

  11. Thank you, I shall be encouraging him to read these posts. He's really bright, but fairly sloth like now, having been fiercely competitive in his teens with Nat Squad windsurf.!

    I worry about his level of motivation, vs the debt issue, Perhaps I need to let him find his own way, but he seems to need guidance from adults at this oh so difficult and much changing time in his life.. Glad I'm not a teenager now :?

  12. ES and DH have left fro the 2nd round, two days of uni visits, with the prospect of fee rises ringing in their ears as they drive off.

    I don't know what to recommend to ES, the prospect of degree course, and likely 50k debt, or try to get an apprenticeship, with lower earning prospects in his future.. :(
