  1. Wonderful. Des res . Wont ,look like that for long. They are like teens trash stuff
  2. That's a mighty fine hen house Andy.
  3. Gosh dont remember writing that. My sons were 10 and 15 then now strapping men. Not seen a frog in mine yet but had one live between grow bags one summer.
  4. Given up on pumpkins. Have one butternut squash coming and a 7 inch cucumber in greenhouse. Snails aplenty. Blooming things. Hate them. Had blackfly on broad beans. Strawberries good. Potatoes look healthy but not sure if anything underneath. The plum tree is a pear tree with 3 pears on cos muggins here got her trees confused. All trees in pots. Retirement has caused addled brain🤣
  5. I feel so old 59 going on 10. Big kid at heart. Love a good loud song in car to warble a long too with windows down. Well done Andy. Sorry about the bullying , I was bullied at school. Hated school. Being happy and successful is the greatest revenge.
  6. Yes hes a multi millionaire so can afford to survive. Real farmers cant.
  7. I never watched top gear couldn't stand the programmes so was with some trepidation I watched this. It's hilarious and cringeworthy all at once. And I now quite like the man. It made us laugh and cringe in equal measure.
  8. Thanks all. Will keep you posted on what I am doing. Plan to dry and weed our garden, decorate sons bedroom . Also hopefully having extension done. Then look for vaccinator work.
  9. Finally at the age of 59 and a half and after 41 years in NHS I am retiring. Excited but a little anxious. Going to take some time off, prob sign up for some charity work and probably see if can sign up as a vaccinator one day a week.
  10. " here lies a crazy cat and chicken lady , gone to clean the big litterbox in the sky and feed the gals" Prob wont be allowed cos they are so stuffy these days .
  11. Winter duvet is still on and I'm menopausal so shouldn't need it. Wearing winter clothes and boots.
  12. I have done a dressing on an actor out of The Bill. We have the mum of a female singer as a patient and the wife of a long gone comedian.
  13. I had a lady come for smear a year ago. Before I did smear she stopped me and said "I have a piercing down there just in case it alarmed you🙄" for once in my life I was speechless as what do you say. As a woman of the world I've seen a fair few. I have 2 ear piercings on ear lobes and that's my lot as found incredibly painful. Contemplating a nipple , belly button or lower wouldn't cross my mind. I am a wuss.
  14. Good to hear you are a little better. Two colleagues had their vaccine (Pfizer) same as me and both very sore arms and feverish and tired - both second jabs. One had covid in Jan and is still run down. I dont know if ethincity plays a part as we know Asian and black people get covid worse and both my colleagues are Asian lasses. Frankly I was better with second than first. I did feel tired so went to bed at 10. But have been stressed due to work and other things. all good wishes and virtual hugs albeit a gentle one as we all have sore arms. xx
  15. Ditto that SD hope you are better this morning. Arm sore but manageable. I agree MH people are stupid. I never as a nurse was so pro vaccine, during MMR debate I felt if parents wanted to risk not having their kids vaccinated that was up to them. Did advise them that if they had daughters should consider that if in the future she wanted her own children she should consider being vaccinated against Rubella. However now I've lived thro a pandemic I am horrified at the rubbish written and sprouted by people and frankly will tell them. Thankfully those I care about feel the same way and have had their jabs. Stay safe all xx
  16. Sorry you had such a severe reaction. Your body is producing antibodies. Keep drinking plenty and rest up. You are right full blown disease is dreadful. My arm is now tender. Taken paracetamol and might got to bed.
  17. Had my second jab today. Yes some people react more than others. I dont know anyone who's been hospitalised after vaccine. They might have been brewing covid- happened to several at work and a couple of days after vax were ill- with covid. Bear in mind a worse reaction means body is working hard to protect you in the future. Also bear in mind covid can cause blood clots - vaccine cant. Lot of cr-p being written . I didn't mind which I got. No you dont have a choice and frankly I dont think you should be choosy unless you have a medical issue . But I know some people will disagree. As I posted before some people are dam right difficult. So so stupid as it will take us longer to get back to some sort of normality.
  18. Lateral flows are abnout 75% reliable and picked up on our 8 cases at work. If you test positive for this you need a PCR which is the swab of throat and nose and long wait. Temperatures are not reliable as you are measuring skin temp and not body temp. if the care home residents have had 2 jabs and visitors wear PPE that should help, however I do worry that the ones with dementia might find mask wearing relatives alarming in some cases. Have to say UK has done a great job with the vaccine, but people are now thinking they can go out and mix. Why are people so stupid? sorry problems with forum - the laughing emojis were an error.
  19. I marshalled at a clinic on Saturday second time I had done it. OH was on the door - but boy have things changed - stroppy people saying they dont want this vaccine , why wasnt I told it was Pfizer/ Astra zenca blah blah blah. For goodness sake be thankful you are getting it. Also the stroppy herberts who hung around eyeballing me all afternoon cos they wanted a vaccine if any left over. The stroppy woman who wouldnt show me the appointment on her phone - shame on you all. But I have a word of thanks to the lovely Asian man who having heard me telling OH we needed some arrows to point the way - handed me a roll of tape from the £ shop - thank you - you made me realise there are some nice people in this world. We marshall for a charity that OH works for - supports old people - and they asked us if our volunteers could help out. First time I loved it but not so keen now. Seems some woman on social media posted there was vaccines left over at the end of the clinic. Where is Jeremy Clarkson when you need him? No one would cross him. He marshalled for his local clinic, can imagine anyone annoying him 🤣
  20. Free sweets! I am going to the wrong vaccination hub🤣
  21. My cousin a nurse had hers today. They were offered tea,coffee and a biscit afterwards. I was not happy. Didnt get offered anything. 🤣
  22. Apologies in advance if already posted this but in December our HCA at work (GP surgery) came to work when she should have been isolating as son had symptons of COVID. I have no idea if she was disciplined although I wasnt the only one firing off emails to manager. Her sister (receptionist) came into work last week with symptons. She tested positive with lateral flow test at weekend. Since then 3 more staff have symptons. I wrote an email to the manager voicing my concerns. She said she wanted to know if any of us had so much as a snuffle . So yesterday feeling like I have a cold - eyes felt watery and have a headache I emailed her. So today off sick. My lateral flow test was negative but sent off a proper test today. The symptons arent like covid ones but the secretary who tested positive has same sort of symptons as me so bit worried. The sister has now she said tested negative on proper test and is saying it was a cold. Last week she could hardly breathe and was coughing. I am so angry I could blow up. They are Romanian and dont believe its an issue - but it is for many. I have had my vaccine but my OH has only just had his. I dont feel its been managed well at all. I am nearly 60 with asthma. Thankfully my elderly aunt is 100 miles away so cant infect her if I have. Self combusting as I type.
  23. Probably caused by Trump!!🙄
