    Sad news

    Such sad news. Sending my condolences to her family x
  2. I still lurk in the shadows! But rarely post Nice to see you! Xx
  3. Going to try the breathing technique! Stress keeps me awake. And stressing about stress. And stressing about the fact that I didn't think I feel particularly stressed so I'm not sure what I'm stressed about. And then stressing about the fact that my alarm is set for 5.12am and if I don't go back to sleep then I'll be so tired at work and all the stuff I'm stressing about will be more stressful.... And if I do happen to have a good night and am fast asleep.....then my kids wake me up at 5am!
  4. We received a lovely card to Ben and Jess, Billy and Nina. (Shame my name is Lorna )
  5. My dad has it. He has been told they won't operate until it gets much worse (if he can't fully open his hand)
  6. Haha, this made me chuckle! I can imagine all the frantic running around! Finding your kitten under your OH's fig....it took my mind a moment to work that one out Hope you have a more peaceful night tonight x
  7. I've never met another omleteer! Nice to hear some of the old names again
  8. There are a fair few on Facebook (although I forget who had/has which omlet name!)...I'm more of a lurker around here these days
  9. Hi, you can try speaking to someone at the National Careers Service (google them), they offer free advice via webchat and I believe you may be entitled to one free face to face session...worth checking out. I don't have a profession, I am a civil servant and often wonder how in earth I ended up doing what I'm doing and think I should be doing something else! Wishing you luck xxxxx
  10. Some people are just sent to try us I think! Not just eBay although it does seem to attract them I listed something on a local FB selling site - a brand new toilet seat (with integrated / hinged junior seat) and it sold within minutes. Agreed with the lady (who I didn't know) that I would bring to the school playground. She said she'd see me there, she had my mobile number, she knew I was helping at a cake stall that afternoon and therefore that is where she would find me. Lugged aforementioned seat to school along with cakes and a small child.......and then lugged it home again. Got a text an hour later saying her husband couldn't find me at the school, had I been there? Erm, husband? Erm, how about letting me know I should be looking out for him? Erm, how about giving me a ring? Could she collect in half an hour. Yes, of course, I replied. An hour later her husband collected.
  11. I love Marmite cashews! I also love Kallo Yeast Extract rice cakes! Yum!
  12. I love love love Cadbury's chocolate! I managed to buy a box of 24 bars of Dairy Milk Bubbly for £4 and am slowly munching my way through them! I'm not keen on Lindor. But I'll manage to force some down if that's all there is I do agree that what you grow up eating tends to remain a favourite.

  14. Wow! Go you! Brilliant update and you should properly pleased and proud of the "new you" Look forward to hearing about your scout about for potential new home/land

    Gosh so sorry to hear this x
  16. I doubt she's tried very hard to make friends, from her quotes it sounds like she's the sort of person that would go around work talking about how gorgeous she is and how much her outfit cost. More likely that would cause people to not like her than the fact she is attractive looking. I wouldn't want to invite her for lunch or drinks
  17. Happy Monday everyone! Fast day for me today. So far so good. Drinking loads and can't stop going to the loo as a result!
  18. She could have a browse on https://nationalcareersservice.direct.gov.uk/Pages/Home.aspx for ideas. They offer web chat and phone chats with advisers too x Edited to add: It's interesting to read what people think of the careers advice available in schools. My work relates to the FE sector, specifically relating to the careers service and information, advice and guidance.
