Keep calm...got involved in a bit of an altercation today with other parents on the sidelines of my son's football match. Never mind the boys are all 17 plus some how it still brings out the worst in the Mums watching!

Make more money, m'wah ha ha!

Or, more realistically...

Mow the lawn.

Steal Rachel's' idea and learn Quidditch.

Though I'm not sure how great an idea that is as I'm terrified of heights (w)

Any hints and tips on that one, Jjjj... ?! :?

U is the first letter of rather unproductive verbs, as in 'un' and 'under'... but I suppose there is uplift... I am now wondering about the etymology of understand.

Undertake some more challenging photography projects?

If anyone has a better one (U), please do...

No, that's a great one, Rachel, and I now want to look up "understand" in the dictionary ;)?

To 'stand under' something might allow one to inspect it more closely and gain a better understanding...?

There again, how many things can one stand beneath? (Trees and giraffes came to mind and then I got stuck. Besides, giraffes are only tall because of their necks, so even they don't count.) So, the etymology probably has nothing to do with that :?

And I haven't begun to explain why it begins with "un"...

:lol: re giraffes. Maybe standing under thing sis a project in itself. (Probably with a camera in hand.) Bridges, pylons, iron stairs/fire escapes, er ceilings?!

You can go under more things, of course, when you are short :) (And I seem to be getting shorter.)

Yes, I need that V too. No sign of it yet. Husband (who is younger than me) was 'done' again a couple of weeks ago. Mind you the doctors seem to have 'escalated' the severity of his asthma/breathing troubles :?
W... Get into the habit of waking up a bit earlier? (On the other hand, why bother? 8.30am is a good time for my body clock.) I am hoping I can go into the office later, to avoid Covid-y rush hour when I am forced to return, so hopefully no need to get into training for that.

Weed! I have loads of weeding to do! As a matter of urgency, really, under the fruit bushes so I can fertilize them. (The bushes, not the weeds...)

I hope you get your second dose soon, and that your husband's asthma/breathing troubles improve <:)>

I think it would be good if, post-lockdown, it became easier for employees to wake and work according to their body clock.

I did read elsewhere, I think, that you had enjoyed some writing the other day so, yes, keep finding time for it. I've been very lax about making time for it recently ;)?

If you happen to be amenable to the suggestion, Mark, perhaps I could brush up on my Yodeling and we could perhaps serenade the masses and take their minds off the pandemic (w)

I think, FF, that this would be just perfect and exactly what the world has been waiting for ;)?

And then we could seek out a friendly Zampoña specialist to help us continue to spread the calming vibes :D
