    Well, that was the last day of the school run, the school has decided to shut the school because of the intense heat. I received a gift from pupil's mum, it was so lovely of her, I will be thinking of her during the holiday's.
    Weather report says it's going to be up to 36/37 c tomorrow, that is hot, hot, hot.

    Now come on fellow pumpers/teabags you have to either please stop moaning about the hot weather, or send some of it up to Haggisland. Its a tad cool here at around 21 degrees and a bit dull. Not even slightly jealous:angelic::angelic::angelic:

    I hate heat. Makes me feel terrible, and not is a diabetes way. I’ve always been like it! I go on holiday to places like Norway :D

    I'd be surprised if there was any duty, when both countries are EU?

    Jay, you could start doing a Big D variant on the Booze Cruise; particularly whilst we're still in the EU.

    Your apologies are accepted and appreciated, at least by me. Not for the video you posted, as I chose to not watch it because I expected I wouldn't find it funny, but for the earlier post you made:
    I'm fat, 'well endowed' (to my regret) and I can't stand clothes that try to sqeeze or strangle me.
    So should I choose to visit a gym and do the things you're supposed to do in a gym, everything would kind of bounce, blubber and jump in all directions for everyone to see.
    While I'm happy you're bg turned out not affected by such a sight, for us fat and bouncy people it's hard to do a public work out knowing that people look at you and find it funny, or worse. It's not the people laughing in your face that make it the hardest, as they're simply ******** so who cares. It's knowing people get home and tell their friends about 'this fat woman working out with her ***** hitting her ears' and having a laugh about it.
    To my thinking the woman you saw was pretty brave.

    Personally, I don't do the gym, but I love swimming. Walking around in a swimming pool with your body for everyone to see is not especially fun when not happy with your body and having been made fun about enough to be quite self conscious. I feel sorry for everyone who doesn't do the things they'd like to do because the stares and the heard thoughts, real or imaginary, have simply become too much to face.

    So yes, I very much appreciate your apology. For one, I realized that I'm not exactly innocent, as yes, I have a laugh about people too sometimes, and what I felt when reading your post reminded me to try to do better in the future.

    When I was in the Netherlands, it was 9-10 euros for a drugstore shampoo and in Germany it was 2 euros for the same shampoo. Even I was shocked :hilarious:
    Best of luck to you, I mean we could all take a trip to France? ;)

    @helensaramay . I apologise but I’ve tried to find your post where you saw a fat woman at the gym. The one that I feel @Antje77 is referring to.
    A lot of people would comment on Linford Christie being well endowed but you’d struggle to find anyone who could honestly call him fat.
    Let’s not assume too much and draw conclusions for self satisfaction.

    .... Probably because the of moderation to reserve the the sensibilities of the body conscious..?

    If you & I were showering after some sporty thing or another, I'm sure (out of decency.) you wouldn't comment that I could give the respected Mr Christie a run for his money...

    With the greatest respect.
    Move on.... ;)

    Sorry @Jaylee . Judging people purely on physical features and making comments that are detrimental, nasty, racist, uncalled for, sexist, are, I agree wrong.
    But we shouldn’t allow a physical feature to be introduced to a post when it didn’t exist originally.
    Why are we assuming that a well endowed woman is fat?
    Yes I could move on but let’s point it out now before someone makes the assumption that fat people are predisposed to being diabetic.

    I didn't refer to a fat woman in the gym, I referred shortly to a well endowed woman in the gym and proceeded to talk about myself, as I have no idea what the woman in the gym looked like, except big breasted with no bra.
    It was about body shaming.

    You obviously missed this part:
    And this part:
    As far as I know there is a difference between 'this' and 'such a'.

    I'm not sure what your problem is with my post but I'm done with this stupid bickering. I feel quite stupid about the urge to prove I didn't write what you said I did as it is so I'll leave it at this.

    @Antje77 . I am rather upset that you fail to see my concerns with what was posted.
    I am even more upset you see it as stupid bickering.
    Yes I will leave it here, happy with the answers and responses I’ve had which have given me more insight.
