How are you


YG Report 9 Dec 2009 21:23

I'm ok, but very stressed at work at the moment. I am having to bite my tongue to stop me putting my retirement notice in!!

Hi YG and Maz. YG if your work is anything like mine at the moment your tongue must nearly be bitten through.

It's wonderful watching everyone enjoying themselves preparing for the end of the year with celebrations and festivities. I'm the wally watching all the invoices roll in, the ones generated by the aforesaid celebrations. The ones that need to be paid before the end of the year.

morning all
had a really good sleep busy day ahead again need to shop for some bits today ,have youth again today ,still hardly any signal on my phone but messages are getting there .

Oh DET It pleases me greatly that you solved your problem with regard to the crossing of the street. Being a thinking type person, never short of a suggestion, by sometimes short of half a wit, my next suggestion was to be the catapult.

I really don't know why you never thought of it in the first place. The homeward journey would have been a delight. A couple more beverages, whoooooooosh across the street, right into your own front yard, bounce, bounce, slide through the front door.

Psst! I'd type this in little letters if I could. Been lurking lately??? I think we should set up a scoring system. Hits, misses and fouls, and award points to the best, um the best, oh dear.................

I really like our little thread!!!

Morning DET , morning all. Hope you have all been behaving in my absence LOL. I was so tired last night after 2 nights of partying with Rainbows then last night Brownies that I could not be bothered to even switch the computer on LOL. Feeling a bit better today thank goodness only woke up once coughing last night so not so bad. I am supposed to be bomb proofing the house at the moment as I am having a certain little visitor later this morning LOL.


LaGooner Report 10 Dec 2009 09:25

Morning Aunty you appeared whilst I was typing.


AuntySherlock Report 10 Dec 2009 09:35

Morning LG. I'm just back from body torture class. Ouch!!

I meant to ask the other day. Did you ever hear from GR as to why your thread was deleted.

I never heard beyond their initial response to the email I sent.


LaGooner Report 10 Dec 2009 09:37

No not a thing Aunty but Hey ho nothing unusual there. LOL. My body hurts without going anywhere outside the house. I have strained my stomach and back coughing OUCH !!!!! Now have to hold on to them while I cough.


AuntySherlock Report 10 Dec 2009 09:42

Given the current intellectual debates abounding in the hallowed halls of far beyond Nut Lodge, I really have to wonder what it was that was considered offensive in our thread.

I would really like to ask GR that very question. However I am exceedingly troubled by the fact that in doing so I might be the cause of the demise of this thread.

One never knows where the fickle finger of fate will fall.


LaGooner Report 10 Dec 2009 09:50

Who knows why it disappered but may it rest in peace LOL. Now typing with frozen fingers as I have just emptied my small freezer to defrost. Just looked in big one and oh boy I think I will be having a cook up for the cats LOL


LaGooner Report 10 Dec 2009 09:56

No time for that I am being invaded by a very small noisy person soon LOL. Just trying to re assemble the Christmas window lights that said small child try to demolish LOL

Don't feel too bad about an inquisitive nature. Borrow Sweetpea from the CPs compound and he and the little tacker will entertain each other for hours, swapping technological stories of derring do, and when grandma said "don't".

Oh that reminds me, I have to sort out my freezer as well.

Ahem, the buns Shelly made went missing, wonder how they got here.

YG Report 10 Dec 2009 18:26

What buns!!! Missed 'em!! Not guilty!! Bet they weren't as good as DETs florentine cookies!!!! Aunty's still drooling thinking about them!

More work next year DET!! Exactly!! Going to be bringing it home for a while!! Oh what fun!!

LG, pleased to hear you are starting to feel a bit brighter. I think we'll manage to rear you for Christmas!!


AuntySherlock Report 10 Dec 2009 20:02

Yes I am drooling. I seems to be a constant drool. Everywhere I go I am surrounded by cakes and biscuits and lollies and chocolate.

Why do people eat so much at Christmas time. Fair puts a thinking woman's diet right off track. My aquaintances and associates think I'm some sort of nutter. (Oh boy, little do they know!!) They are all tucking into the yummies and I'm quieting drooling at a distance.

Oh I could do that as well, but in the six weeks I have been nutritionally good I have lost four and a bit kilos and some of my summer clothes now fit. The mob are going to Maccas for breakfast this morning. Now I ask you what chance do I have!!


LaGooner Report 10 Dec 2009 20:27
