Pleased to hear your settling in after your move up North,  I am positive someone will recognise you and want to renew friendships,

 

Ben is recognised wherever he goes. His past is infinite. We will never know the full story; it would cause the internet to crash.

Best wishes from me too Nonna, also sorry to hear about your neighbour Mary, such a shock for her family.  

 

I’ve had a busy few days as my husband has been in Ontario for 5 days, attending his eldest sister’s funeral. She was only 82 but had suffered with lots of health issues for a few years.  So apart from having to deal with my own chores I’ve been doing all the jobs my husband does.  At least I’ve got my ‘step count’ up these past few days by regularly walking Jack.  Anyroad-up, yesterday my feet hardly touched the ground.  I walked the dog a couple of miles, then shot over to my Wollaton dentist to have a spot of ‘deep root cleaning’ ....... yes it’s just as horrible as it sounds, and this was the second session in the past two weeks.  Mind you, the prior injections are the painful bit to be honest.  Was only home 10 minutes and got a call from QMC to go and collect a neighbour who’d had a shoulder operation in the morning.  This chap is a 79 year old highly intelligent intellectual bachelor with no family.  The other week he’d asked if he could stay with us overnight after his operation, whenever it was going to be.  No problem we said, but I didn’t realise I’d be dealing with him on my own!  He’s got to keep his right arm in a sling for 6 weeks which is going to be so difficult for him.  Anyway, I woke up at 7.30 this morning and discovered that he’d gone home, leaving no evidence at all that he’d stayed the night.  I phoned him to check he was ok and apparently he’d had a bad night with the pain and cleared off at 6am.  My husband arrived home at 9 and all he’s done since then is doze in front of the telly.  Hopefully normality can be resumed but I’ll have to keep an eye on the neighbour.

Had to just drop in in to say keep your collective chins up.  Certainly a lot of trials going on these days.  I'm thinking of all of you.

It has been nice to keep reading your posts.  It's been nice on here just lately.  I'm still lurking around the dog house.  Trying to get my bp meds sorted out.  Another docs apptmt Friday to do some more whining and growling.  Come to think of it maybe I should go and see Jake's vet.  He seems pretty good.

My probs are minor compared to some of yours.

Yes, I’ll second that Loppy. The site has reverted to being a more pleasant institution recently!

Hope that's not kiss-o-death, Phil.

We have just spent 10 days on Holy Island so peaceful and quiet, I can recommend a visit if you need to recharge your batteries. To all of you feeling unwell I hope your feeling better soon,  to the rest of you who are fit make sure you stay that way.

Not sure whether you’re right there FLY, this chap is so incredibly intelligent that most things he talks about go right over my head.  Last evening he was trying to educate me about a lady called Mrs Humphry Ward, a best-selling British novelist in the early 1900s.  The conversation came about when we were discussing the area I lived in before moving back to Nottingham 15 years ago.  This lady lived at Stocks in Aldbury, Hertfordshire, a village not far from our old home.   Many years later Victor Lownes of the Playboy empire lived in the house with a few of his playmates!  He was filling my tiny brain with so many facts, I think he said Mrs Humphrey Ward was a big player in the suffragette movement.  I’ve needed a quiet day today!

After all the upheaval of moving,,wifes decided to go away for a few days and recuperate,, which leaves me with a dilemma,, 

  Do i go in town on the pull or invite one of my new lady neighbours round to entertain?  Suggestions welcome,,

The first option, well, you don't know what you're getting, and the second option, well those that don't get an invite may get jealous and snitch.

Forget it Ben. Stick with your books and CD's !

Take the third option Ben and stick to Nottstalgia, trust me it's a lot safer.

Or the fourth option...but it's too late now.

 

Organise a 'Flash mob" Nottstalgia meet-up somewhere nearby. When does she get back ?
