    Happy belated birthday @Clivethedrive , apologies but it seems people missed it apart from Antje

    Its pretty cold here, and miserable. Had an hour or two of sunshine yesterday but that soon went.

    Had the youngest granddaughter for a few hours yesterday, eldest was on a scouts trip. Had fun playing games with a 2 1/2 year olds amazing imagination.

    Countdown now on for Christmas. This week is mainly visiting relatives and cleaning so probably wont be around much.

    I'm sure I'll be back to wish you all a merry Christmas :singing:

    hi all

    Sorry I've been MIA - been mentally unwell.

    Back to normal now, I think so here's hoping some people come to 'play' on the boards. You all seem to be MIA too

    Hiya both @Molly56 and @Clivethedrive

    You enjoy your trip to Morocco. We eventually booked Malta for last week of March (to avoid tourists). Hubby never been on a plane before ha ha, and hasnt been abroad either unless you count the old hypermarkets in France on a school day trip (yes he's that old).

    Me I've done the trip to Florida twice, once with the girls and once without (only had the one then and she was too young). Would love to go back to Florida but hubby wouldnt cope with driving.

    Today is awful weather here in the Midlands. We have storm Brendan courtesy of the Atlantic. Might stay home today - not feeling the people vibe again

    Have a good day all

    waiting for hubby to get up - he's had a bad night.

    We're off to pick the youngest granddaughter up from mommy later on as eldest granddaughter has a chat at school about upcoming exams. So going to take the wee one on a shopping trip. It's her first day at nursery today so expecting miss cranky pants. Wish me luck

    Today I'm going to clean up and make some soup. Family recipe that has been with us for a few generations. I reckon its based on the old medieval soup called 'brown' ie throw anything and everything in.

    Enjoy your day

    Mr Clive

    I’ve taken some laxatives today to see if they can help

    Tummy has been rumbling but no result yet

    Hope you and Mrs Molly are ok

    @Cumberland one of the things I've learnt my friend is take a book or a magazine in with you to take ur mind off the thoughts of going the loo.

    Also if you can take a telephone book sized book, brick, etc and sit with ur feet on that as it eases the passage of the poop down the canal.

    Good luck my friend. I've had irritable bowel syndrome since 1989 so know exactly what it feels like.

    You can buy pills to help with the wind, charcoal often helps so think burnt toast.

    Also if you're on a high dosage of pain relief that may be causing the problem so ask ur gp about a laxative you can take daily to keep things moving

    Morning all

    Bit of a grey day here but pleasantly warm.

    Been pretty busy past 2 days and now I'm feeling it. Going to take it easy today.

    Have a good day all

    Think I’d need all volumes of encyclopaedia britannica to read as I sat there half a day almost

    How’re you doing Wolfie?
