Great to hear from a "real" local football fan.... I loved my trips to wrexham as an away palace fan. Those big corporate clubs fans will never know the feeling you have today..a once in a generation truly dezerved celebration. More power to u mate.

You and I have a long history mate...

And a lot in common.... For many years my team played yours in the same divisions...and if you ever came to an away game against the Us (col u)between 68 and 2006 we probably Were within a hundred meters or so of each other

I succumbed to a real hot cross bun yesterday. First gluten I've had for 13 months. Paying for it though today.

I guess I really will have to keep to a GF diet. Dang.

Wifes lying in bed with rumbling vesuvius guts, after take some cleansing medication, which is a tad scary..... due to her colonoscopy later today.... Kids are in bed as well. I dont think they are meant to be.

I'd best go and investigate and do some parenting for once..... Hmmm maybe I'll go grocery shopping instead.

Was offered a job today working for a lovely doctor at his private rooms paying a shed load of money. I have turned it down, though since I don't think it would be fair to start work in April then go for a month long holiday in August and take 16 weeks off next year for prac.

I'm consoling myself with a big serve of hot chips drowned in vinegar.

Did you tell him that was why you were turning it down? He might have been happy to put up with that just to get you

Aw Dorothy. Congrats on the job offer. Have you explained to him your situation? He may be ok with it. You never know if you don't ask.

Yes I did. He said he would give me the time off but I don't think it would be fair to take a job I know I won't stay in long term. I was really flattered by the offer, though. He's a lovely man and I would have been very happy working for him.

That's great and must be a relief for both of you! .... and what a nice husband you are making her a roast dinner even if she can't have it today!

It's a good ego boost to know that you are in demand! .... I would imagine *sighs*

Here life is plodding along still. I've been getting some extra hours/shifts at work so that's taken a bit of pressure off financially and while we are not going forward at least we're keeping the bills paid after a few extra expenses with the car and an unexpected vet bill.

A working day of shaking my head at the actions of others rounded off by a huge mistake by yours truly.

Meh, try again tomorrow.
