  1. Motion dizziness after being in a boat

    I have only had travel sickness a few times - on a boat going to Calais in the 1980's - it was winter so choppy. The other times were on coaches in Spain. I dont like travel sick pills they make me drowsy and unco-ordinated (more than the menopause does LOL) . Last time was on the coach to the airport. I descreetly voimited into a bag I found in my handbag and when the coach stopped I bolted off the coach like Mo Farrah. The holiday rep said " are you felling better now" I was mortified, the time before was on a coach and ES was 2 and being potty trained. I grabbed his potty and yes you've guessed threw up in it. A cross little voice said " you've been sick in my potty" The lady opposite smiled and hissed " are you feeling better?" Oh the embarassment. Going to Spain this year think I will see GP and try and get something before I go. You have my sympathy Clare but dont know what to suggest.
  2. Parenting in a different place

    Oh I feel your pain. Did self catering for years - now we do full or half board. We are all off to Spain - even ES who is 23 and paying for himself now hes got a job which pays big bucks. YS 17 is coming as wont leave him alone in house. Not sure what I would come back too. We used to take everything but the kitchen sink. Men are hopeless at finding stuff. Its obvious to me that pants and socks go in same drawer but I still get " muuuuuuuuuuuuuummmm have I got any pants" "no son you can go commando" ooh the sarcasm

    What the men or the sheep? Looks wonderful - so envious - what about goats - cheese and milk. Just have to watch your washing that they dont eat your laundry hanging in garden. LOl
  4. Tigger!

    The first day I got mine first ladies sadly long gone - they chomped their way thro the rhubarb leaves. I posted on Omlet and was horrified they were poisonous to hens as well as humans. I full expected them to be dead the next day. Sadly hens cant read.
  5. Paws for thought!

    I will put this to him.

    OH sustained a nasty insect bite on his forearm this week. It was a red dot Thurs morning and he always takes antihistamines for hayfever but by lunch time it was red hot and angry. He was dispatched to GP after me telling the receptionist I was a trained nurse blah blah blah and I wanted him seen today (naughty but needs must) . The GP ummed and aahed and said he was worried it was Lymes disease but then decided it wasnt but put OH on high dose antibiotics in case. He hasnt got the distinctive rash unlike my ES who some of you recall had a bullseye rash and fever in his teens on return from New Forrest school trip. Apparently here in NW London Lymes is rife(I have seen Munchjac deer round here). Anyway poor lad is feeling pretty grot poss due to tablets - and high dose antihistamines - only today has his arm stopped hurting. None of us have seen any ticks on us or cats but not taking any chances and ordered tick remover from Amazon to keep in first aid box. Today I heard a shriek "oh no theres another of the bleep bleep ticks on me" I rushed over to find OH clutching his arm and staring at a ................................. greenfly in terror. I pulled the devil off and squashed it. He;d been outside and had picked up a passenger. Had to laugh - told him get a grip.

    Today a colleague one our surgery receptionists had a wardrobe malfunction (I think that is what celebrities call them) . She was wearing a thin peach coloured jumper. It wasnt till she got to work and went in the loo that she realised her patterned racy bra showed thro. A cover up with a scarf saved her blushes, after we had all had a giggle. She rang her husband and asked why he hadnt told her that she was showing all she had (shes well upholstered) and he said he thought it was normal to show your underwear through your clothes!! Not sure what planet hes on. Suspect he'll get a telling off tonight. Men !!

    Frankly nothing surprises me today.i had to see a patient today with some fishwife who was shouting at the poor receptionist. All this in a Drs surgery. Poor receptionist later in tears. A while later another woman complete with brat was berating reception. I voiced my displeasure to the manager and told him it was like working in a lunatic asylum. I am this close to walking out and not alone.

    I feel your pain. My hairs bad every day. Or old lady hair. Most of the people I know in London have had mice in house/flat. Hens the reason we got cats. My country friends no sign of mouse's in houses
