One second I was in my kitchen making a salad to go with the pizza we were about to enjoy, and the next I'm outside in my slippers whacking a screeching raccoon with a snow-shovel and trying to get the dog to leave it alone for two seconds so it could run up the tree to safety all while trying to avoid getting bit or scratched by either of them. After finally getting them separated I had to bathe the dog and tend to the fresh batch of cuts on her face while trying to get us both calmed down. I didn't have much appetite after that and there's some cold margherita pizza in the fridge if anybody wants some.


So, not this scene then?

Just had the pleasure of sorting out a leak to the waste of our kitchen sink. It is a double drainer with a dishwasher input, so it is very complicated ,and it took me an age to install it a couple of years ago. Getting it all apart and cleaning out the u bends was disgusting. I need a steam shower now. :(

just had an argument with the nursery for Madame. Who knew that nappy rash cream was a health and safety issue.

I remember when my kids were babies there was a big fuss about a connection between Betnovate and nut allergies. I am sure that has been sorted, but these rumours do persist.

The nursery can't use any cream that hasn't been dispensed by a chemist. The cream that I have was bought over the counter, not on prescription. To get it dispensed by a chemist, I have to get it under the minor ailments scheme. However the cream I use that was recommended by the health visitor is not covered by the scheme. So I had to get a different cream, so that it could have a sticker to show that it had been dispensed by a chemist.

This is apparently because of the Care Commission and concerns about cross contamination in Elderly Care homes, which was then extended to cover nurseries as well.

An US co worker is googling my hometown, what disappointment he's in for.

Looks fine to me! But then, I'm not a US co-worker.

We had a brief snow flurry here in the golden triangle a little earlier. Whilst watching the snow blow around, I was bemused to see the nest door neighbour walk down the path and start hanging her laundry up on the washing line.

In my experience you'll have a lot of frustrations and have your heart broken at least once before you get your house. Then you'll forget all about those missed ones.

I had the easiest house purchase back in the 80s. I was renting the house and the owner told me he wanted to sell the house and he was either going to sell it to me or someone else. So I bought it. I was happy, didn't want to move and the price was very reasonable. We shared the same agent! He offered, I accepted, we signed papers, it was over.

Well thanks to the amber weather warning I'm off work tomorrow and possibly Friday as well.
There's also a pub across the street from where I live so it all looks good for tomorrow.

I have FUCKING SHINGLES

SHINGLES!

what am I, flipping 80 years old?

And it hurts like Hell. And it's mad itchy. And I'm supposed to avoid contact with my kid.

Shingles! What a world.
