Happy, my Garmin is working. Stressed out, drove my knackered car 100 miles leaking steering fluid, grateful for the RAC and Kwik fit who got me back on the road. Really pleased to be home.

Happy that Beans is settling in ok. She can be a sulky puss at times but then she can be charging about or playing with her toys and occasionally she’ll even sit on my lap.

Glad you've got a new best friend Spats, far more reliable than people. :D

Glad, went to the drop in center and had a good laugh at how useless we were at the quiz, followed by the gym, only walked on the treadmill but had quite a steep gradient.

Bored, miserable weather, finding it hard to motivate myself re the knitting and can't get into POF to read my messages. I much prefer the week days than the weekends, roll on Monday.

Glad, I got my car fixed, just need to get it through an MOT next.

Pissed off, snow, wind and more snow

Happy sad and angry - went on a whale watching trip on a small boat. The crew spotted and rescued a small loggerhead turtle in distress, and we took her back with us to a rescue centre in the port. She had swallowed plastic, and because of this was unable to dive. Stuck on the surface, she was slowly starving to death and getting sunburnt. She will probably be OK with treatment. It was amazing to see - I've never seen a turtle up close - but made me think of who much damage we humans wreak in the world.

Moira - it's another scorcher here! I'm off for a coastal walk and lunch in the sun somewhere.

Glad to hear you're having a great holiday Sally. ;)? I'll be thinking of you as I struggle to deliver leaflets in the snow and gales of bonny Scotland. :?

Grateful I've found Dr Michael Mosley's books, have read two in the last week, found a diet that, touch wood, is working when all else failed (except 40 fags a day).

Desperate, sick of the snow and wind, roll on spring.

Grateful for good friends, had a lovely lunch with the girls, and didn't open the bottle of wine I have in the kitchen.

Yay you!

Grateful to be home, and snug from the storm, after a long day travelling. Less happy with the change in light levels and temperature! Already planning next winter's sunshine holiday.

Thanks Ruby :)

Enjoy your yoga and meditation xx

Happy to have cancelled going to help out at an annual ball tonight and managed to swap with another volunteer. It would have been far too busy/noisy and i haven't got the stamina for that atm.

Grateful to be getting nearer to lighter nights and the spring.
Hi Shadow, just wondering how you are as you've been quiet for a while?

Hello Sally and Moira <:)>

Thank you for asking after me i am well thank you i hope you are both ok too ;)?

It didn't work out with that man, that is internet dating for you it takes time to get to know someone and he turned out to be a nob. :roll: ;)

All is not lost though because i am seeing someone who is treating me like a queen atm. He seems sweet and is behaving like a gentleman so far ;)? Wish me luck.

Ruby, we deserve the best and after a year or two of roller coaster dating i hope i accept nothing less now. You take care with it but enjoy it too <:)> <:)>

That sounds great Nicky. ;)? Glad you found a goodun, there's just so many arseholes out there and I seem to find them all (but I'm not bitter lol).

Grateful a friend drove me over half the country to pick up a chest of drawers, hopefully I'll start spring cleaning soon. (w)

I seem to have started spring cleaning already Ruby. Think i was forced into it when shadow cat started spraying under the stairs. A major clean up operation began and been reorganising everywhere lol.

Happy: Just happy to be sober and to have good people in my life.

Sad : Missing my daughter who is in Crete for 3 months.

Good luck with the spring cleaning Nicky, I've bought the furniture to put things in but not started the cleaning. (w) Sorry to hear you're missing your daughter, it must be hard for kids to grow up and leave the nest. Hopefully the time will fly by. <:)>

Embarrassed, drank far too much last night, been having a bit of a dip in my mood but feeling better today. ;)?
