    Yesterday I put up with a day of Hollie puking for England. I accept that when you have babies and dogs you deal with this stuff. She’s been okay all day today until tonight. She’s poohed the most awful smell i’ve ever encountered and I can’t find it. It’s not in the lounge so i’ve shut the door between that room and the kitchen diner which has toned it down a smidge. I will have to wait until some decent light tomorrow to deal with it. I’m going to bed to get away from it. Goodnight everyone.
    I’ve dealt with it all, but had to get the electric floor scrubber out. There is still a faint miasma.

    New rant. I want to have a punt at an investment and my bank won’t let me. Now I know they are trying to protect me and they probably think i’m vulnerable because i’m an oap. But I don’t have dementia, I still work as an accountant and it’s my money. It’s not new. 11 years ago I paid a deposit for a cruise but the bank wouldn’t release the money for the balance. I had to go into the main branch and basically beg them to let me go on holiday.

    I’m having to be devious to spend my own hard earned cash. It’ll be no use to me when i’m dead.

          Icy cold rain. I don't mind rain per se, but if it's going to be such cold, cold rain, then I'd rather it was snow.

            Bought a new computer. So far, update downloads amount to 7 GB. We have a limit of 25 for the month. I hope it all stops soon. That said, I'd rather it hadn't stopped at "Preparing to install updates 13%" about half an hour ago. And not moved on since...
            Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

              Is there a penalty for disactivating an Ipad and therefore FaceTime?

                  After umteen attempts over the years I have decided to have a go at baking again. They advertised 'completely non stick silicon cake tin(?), ideal for the perfect cake'

                  Nope, they should change it to 'completely stuck silicon cake tin, ideal for the lumps to have with custard'.

                  Oh well I suppose the crumbs taste OK.

                    You are not doctors please stop telling me what I have and should do!!!

                    Just because Aussie Flu is in the paper, does not mean that everyone who gets ill has it.

                    Just because you are older does not mean you know more about illnesses (let alone more than a doctor).

                    I would love to add more but I shan't. Big fat grrrrrrrrrr!

                    And so not to worry anyone I have a chest infection, I saw the doctor yesterday and got antibiotics.

                      • I've got flu. I feel ghastly. I'm visiting my mum. She keeps asking do I want fish for lunch and will I make carrot soup for supper. I just want to switch the world off and go to bed. Hope it goes quickly, otherwise she's going to soon be as fed up as I am.

                        • Well, I've suspected it for a while and now proof has been found that some prople really do need a good, hard kick up the rear end...........................I'm referring to the story on the Beeb about the woman who left a self interested and abusive note to......................wait for it..................the paramedics who had stopped their emergency ambulance on her street. She wanted it moved.

                          Hang your head in shame you sad, sad woman.

                              • Some nasty little man from sub-continent phoning up at 07:50 telling he's from Talktalk and saying that he can sort out my poor connection. Asking me which lights flashing on router then asking me to run Windows laptop so he can show me what's wrong, he can't do it on iMac.
                                This is utter BS. What he is trying to get me to do is let him get remote control, it's easy to do on Windows but not on OS X (Apple). Gave him Anglo-Saxon lesson.
                                Would have rung off quicker but a Talktalk bod was due to visit. One give way was his calling a router a rowter.
