Craig, Lee's ok on the shopping front, but avoids ironing, washing etc...I've had a ? funny turn Weds at work, A&E stroke unit, CT ok, waiting for MRI - so now I'm home because I've no major symptoms right now, and hopefully won't have, but this weekend he's going to master the washing machine and ironing his shirts.

Hope you're OK!

 

Ironing is easy but the tip is get him told of anything you must have washed as delicate and what can't go in the tumble dryer.  I learned that the hard way when I was shouted at because I put one of the wife's silk shirts in a 60 degree wash with my other white shirts then in a hot tumble drier, nicely ruined.  I now refuse to wash any of the wife's clothes as I've also colour dyed a few other delicates.

he'll be reet - I'm convinced them that say they can't - teenage kids, some men etc - just don't do it or do a bad job on purpose  ;)

 

He's told me to rest, so he's chosen his path.....

 

I'm doing as I'm told, rest, potter and keep going ..... I'm a zillion times better off than ,most, just got numbness and occasional quick pain behind my temple. They don't think it's a stroke, MRI is urgent, but I work there and know that could be a week - and like I say, I'm okish so better to not get anxious, and keep chin up.

Well... that was a disaster of a shopping trip.
 
Phase 1:  Waitrose.  I had to go there to get 5 things that can only be bought there.  Not one in stock, waste of a trip.  Rude old women blocking the aisle leading to the fridges, they were all hanging around where the reduced items shelves are waiting for new items to go there at 3pm.  I did ask nicely to be let past for one to reply "we're waiting, so can you".  She wasn't best pleased when I barged past her after asking nicely a second time and being ignored.
 
Phase 2:  Sainsburys.  Absolutely packed full of people seemingly panic buying, apparently there's a bank holiday coming when the shops aren't going to be shut.  Shamefully ignorant people including one woman blocking the checkout aisle with her trolley and refusing to move it so I could get down.  The woman in front was even more rude to the poor girl on the checkout, it was her second day on the job and she wasn't that fast but that was no excuse for the woman to call her incompetent and telling her to go find a less challenging job if she can't even operate a checkout till.  The poor girl was shaking when she was serving me as she was obviously upset with her treatment.
 
Phase 3:  Tesco.  I had to go there to get a prescription I'd put in last week.  Another old woman pushed in the queue ahead of me then got quite stroppy when I told her that the queue was behind me.  "I don't have time to wait in the queue, I've better things to do".  The pharmacy assistant handled it perfectly by ignoring her when she tried to get served in front of the rest of us.

Thank $deity that that's over and I can settle down for the weekend!

Bloody hell, must be some right miserable sods where you live.

I know they're meant to be representative only and don't really reflect the true amount paid back but a friend just showed me a screenshot of the new Kerry Katona advert for Cash Lady, a new payday loan company, where the APR was listed as 2670%.  No wonder a judge didn't jail this guy.

My son has now gone back to Leigh - we've had a lovely day - don't know whether it's because I've had a bit of a wake up call healthwise, but I felt compelled to share some tales of my misspent youth ha ha "don't worry about what you and your sister have ever done, I've got the t-shirt and doubled it"

Was the response a shocked ("mum, I'm shocked!") or relaxed ("mum, I expected nothing less!") face? ;)

Never tell your kids what you got up to at their age. Let them find out gradually via your friends' conversational indiscretions.

 

I don't want to know what my kids have got up to.

I shouted at the radio when the American (maybe Canadian) dj on smooth radio referred to 2007 as "twenty oh seven". Dick.

When you refer to the years between 1900 & 1910, do you say Nineteen Hundred and *** or do you say Nineteen 'O' something? Same thing.

I read about that too. Not all of them have them, I think I found a new pastime now the rugby league Stobart spotting has dried up.
