    Well it's the weekend and the weather forecast isnt too good for our region.

    Hubby has taken the dog for his nail clipping and a run. I opted to stay home and clean up the mess said dog had made (not his fault, just been very wet so muddy footprints)

    I hope everyone is well, or as well as can be.

    I guess I should get my bloods done and have my check up before they tell me off.

    Have a good weekend everyone

    Morning all *waves*

    I am watching Cake Boss (and almost licking the tv screen!) before getting showered, doping myself up with painkillers and heading through to Glasgow for Still Game Live, haven’t had the miracle recovery I was hoping for, but I am feeling a heck of a lot better so I am determined I am NOT missing it! Have a great day everyone!

    Morning all

    Beautiful sunny day here in the Midlands.

    Just come from court. Trying to get a passport and because some of my documents are old and fragile the passport office wont accept them. So trying to find differenet ways of proving who I am even though my driving licence, bank account etc are all in my new name and have been since 2006. Hubby had to change his name legally this morning so hopefully get his application sent off this week. beaucracy gone mad. I have an old passport but they havent got any records as its an old British one, not an EU one. And I have to provide details of my parents, even though they are both dead because I have to apply for a 'first' passport and prove I'm British.

    Must be a wonderful job working for the Passport Office and charging £100 and saying no.

    Rant over

    Morning folks

    No-one around for a while, I hope that means you're all in good health and have plenty of things to keep you occupied.

    All OK in Wolfie's World. Daughter number 2 gets married on Wednesday. Has come around fast.

    Lots of blood tests next week. You would think department A would talk to department B to get results from each other, or arrange for one department to call for the blood test. I have 6 blood forms from various appointments I've had over the past few weeks. I have a feeling they may refuse to send all 6 off and that I will have to go back for some of them.

    Hopefully catch up with some of you over the coming weeks.

    I am!
    Currently dividing my mood between feeling sorry for myself because of 2 red, itchy, painful eyes and feeling rubbish and being utterly happy with my hba1c that has just come in. Interesting exercise to do 2 opposite moods at the same time :hilarious:

    I do this on the couch with my dogs and a celebratory beer, and will add a glass of whisky to kill whatever germs are in my eyes :)

    I'm floating around through the boards.

    Havent posted because no-one about.

    Horrid weather in the Midlands. I'm glad I live at the top of a hill, even though the drain outside our house is blocked.

    Havent seen the newly weds since they got home. Was hoping to pop in but other things happened. Have seen the grandchildren and they are getting excited for Santa. I happened to find 2 lovely hand knitted, traditional stockings for Santa in a charity shop so snapped those up for the girls. Showed them yesterday and the wee one thought she had to wear it like socks. Wouldnt mind but the stocking is nearly as big as her lol.

    Off out shopping today. Have some online goodies to collect. And meeting with a close friend tonight for a chat and a cuppa.

    So all well in Wolfie's world.

    I hope you're all OK and the weather isnt too bad in your neck of the woods

    Morning all

    Hope you are all well and getting ready for what is supposed to be the festive period.

    Do you abstain? Or do you partake in a little of what is supposed to be bad for you? I think I've had that many mince pies I'm fed up looking at them and we're not in December yet.

    Things here are OK. Weather has been a bit mad so havent ventured far from home. I'm going to attempt going into town later to get some pjs for the grandchildren from my inlaws.

    @Clivethedrive great news on your licence, keep toot tooting wherever your tours take you.
    @Molly56 hope you're well and making lots of Christmas related items
    @Cumberland hope you're well and Wispa is giving you much joy
