It is everything and more

I started a diary and since April 9th I have written 13 pages and 5,000 words on all the wonderful experiences we've already had so far. (I couldn't have written that much in a year in the US).

I suppose now that I've admitted that you'll be expecting me to post in Back Home forthwith

I can't expect what I myself have failed miserably to do

I had a feeling you'd take to Brit life like a duck to water and I'm so glad I was right (notice how that was all about me!)

If you publish those diaries I'll buy a copy! Please leave out the gratuitous sex and violence

Oh thank god. I will have to read all 13 pages in order to condense it for BE and I haven't the time

It has surpassed all expectations and I am wildly happy - there, now it's all about MEEEE (even though YOU were right!)

I have nothing so titillating to tell, I'm afraid. Sorry to disapoint

Best friend in the UK posted some photos of a night out with some friends. For the first time ever I felt desperately homesick and miserable and I have no idea why but it pissed me off a lot.

Courtesy of my maternal grandmother who was born on the Wirral, I have quite a few distant cousins living in NW England. I've been speaking with some of them on FB for years, and yesterday one of them and her husband came to visit.She was nice. He turned the visit into 4 hours of unmitigated hell. You'll all recognize the type.

He wasn't at all interested in us, it was all about him.

Every time anyone tried to contribute to his monologue, they'd be totally ignored and he just kept on talking.

His wife tried to cut him off a few times by asking us about our travels, with predictable results. Everywhere we'd been, he'd been too but more times. Everywhere we'd been that he hadn't, he'd say (with a look of distaste on his mug) that he'd never had a desire to travel to there.

I was telling my cousin about a great experience we had travelling on the Reunification Express train in Vietnam, sharing a sleeper cabin with 4 Vietnamese lads. There went that look of distaste again - 'oh, I wouldn't do that. It's first class for us, all the way'.

He couldn't be doing with a courtyard like ours, he likes his big garden. I was so bloody tempted to ask if it had room for a pony.

My cousin wanted a look around our house. She loved the bathroom, we knocked down a wall and ripped out cupboards to make a huge space that includes a large walk in shower. She was saying to him how lovely it is, and he snapped 'yes yes yes, it's a bathroom'

By the time they left my jaw was aching from keeping a fixed smile on my face and I had a thumping headache. As he drove off, he yelled out the window 'we must do this again soon!' As we Aussies say, pig's arse! What a wanker
Ha! Spouce..sympathise! . Just endured a very long evening with one such 'bore' His method was simple to shout anyone down who dared to interrupt his monologue. He was wedged (the now ,usual overweight Brit) between me and another woman,obviously to his disgust. I actually managed to shut him up at one point after he was banging on about the golf club he played at being superior to the one I played at. 'He wouldn't join that one because he was a 'long hitter'(Gag)and he would lose too many balls in it's extensive 'rough'

I said 'Oh dear! yes it does tend to punish anyone who can't be accurate!!! Ta da.. His face was a picture .. puce (drank too much as well) and flabbergasted.

I put down a 2 part epoxy metallic floor system in the garage at the new house exactly as directed. I did all the prep, made sure that the floor was dry, went at 7 am so not too hot yet. Bloody thing is full of bubbles. Bubbles that when they pop leave big craters in the epoxy. $500 worth of stuff and hours of prep/application for bubbles!

Can you complain to the manufacturers or at least the shop where you bought it? We put some 'special' garage/car port floor paint' down in the car port, chunks have lifted and if you walk normally when it's raining you tend to skid from one end to the other.
