Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

At 8pm tonight I'll be closing the lid on my laptop, and closing the door to my home office for two weeks. No overseas holiday this year though, SWMBO and i will be having daytrips and visiting family in Leeds

Well, that's the plan... No doubt I'll be getting emailed & slacked from about 10am on Monday morning.

Get a colleague to book at meeting from 1900 or 1800 if they can get away with it that you have to attend but doesn't really happen. Just to stop some silly person trying to book a real one in.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Since June, I've been going to a charity near me called The Men's Shed, it has helped me, recently I put a thing about it on my towns moaning page on facebook


Well to day some one who saw this came along and joined.


He is originally from Germany, and I said I've always wanted to ask a German this question "Have you heard of Fawlty Towers and have you seen the episode called The Germans" he laughed and said "Don't mention the War, I did once but think I got away with it"


I laughed and said I was always told this was never seen in Germany, but this is not true.

Roasting a whole chicken for our dinner later. Plenty to go in the freezer for other times.

1.7kg £2.79 from Lidl on Saturday. Bargain.

Ditto heero, bought extra large fresh chicken 2.2kg £3.80 bargain from Tesco, reduced from £4.75 which I cooked same day. So far chicken and chips with gravy, today chicken curry and boiled rice, enough for tomorrow, and the rest in freezer, plus a little left over for a sandwich.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

My niece quit here job at Asda and got a job in a Nursery (10am to 2pm Mon to Fri) as it is closer to what her degree and career path is, but she is waiting on Asda to do a reference.

On Sunday she had planned to spend the week with her girlfriend house sitting her girlfriend's sister pet Bearded Dragon. But sitting in McDonald's with her and my sister, the new job contacted her and said can you please start Monday 8:30am to 5pm as they have loads self-isolating and short-staffed.

So she had to get a personal reference and that will do, so she agreed with them to do full hours Mon to Wed and the short day Thurs & Fri.

So as I type, she is probably having fun running around with 2 to 4-year-olds.


This will enable her to also start the Uni course.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Had an NHS Abdominal Aortic Aneurism screening today (all clear), and whilst I was at the Doctors’ Surgery, I got my Flu booster jab.

Glad to hear your screening showed that you were in the clear Hugh, I always keep my fingers crossed when I am screened for different heath checks each year. Seems to work.

John and I are hoping that we will get our flu jabs on Monday when we get our C19 booster shots. Think I'll try the fingers crossed method.

We have been told we have to stay on site for 15 minutes, the same as happened after our Pfizer injections.

I believe most boosters will be Pfizer

I did ask last time how many people had allergic reaction to the 2nd jab after not having on for the 1st. I can ask the same but with 3rd next time hahahaha

Well neither John nor I had any reaction to our first 2 Prizer jabs ...well only a tender arm which soon returned to normal. Hopefully which ever brand we get on Monday will be OK.

Re: The Happy Thought Thread Part 4

Happy that a brought my VM box back in the living room, My Freesat box was giving me bother every time the weather was bad, It would have cost me £100 to bring them out to fix it, I will feel more secure in the coming winter weather
