Bah! I was moving some ex tree logs, that husband had not moved, because they were beginning to get on my nerves sitting there on the driveway and I went and tweaked my back a bit. Ouchies & only myself to blame really , unless I can fit the husband intot he picture somehow. Bend ze knees ole codger, bend ze knees.

My sympathies. Don't blame Mr Bevs, just allow him to see that you're hurt so he can express his regret and concern on his own and then let him spoil you and it should be good for a couple of days at least. In between bringing your meals and so on he can move the logs.

Feel better matey , but you really have to stop thinking you're the little train that could!

I do sympathize though. I was sure i could lift the bags of rocks off the truck, I've always been able to before but dammit not now! They are either heavier or I'm getting weaker (And older)

It feels like it. No, it's time to work on the yard that was destroyed by Harvey 2 years ago. I went for rock instead of mulch so it's hard work.

... Property is their biggest ker-chinger. Running & maintaining the UK rail infrastructure is a bloody-irritant that comes with their money-printing licence.
Oh look! Here's a couple of extra square-foot .. ker-bloody-ching!!!

Property at the expense both of these little businesses and of the character of London. Central London will all be just money. Same thing has happened to Manhattan, where I lived for a while. It's makes things very clean and shiny, and you can get an expensive cup of coffee anywhere, but it has been made bland.

I prefer to use self checkouts.

1st June today, so far this spring the weather has been awful. This morning was bright and sunny, but a little cool, so I wore a pair of white jeans and a 1/2 sleeve top. After about 1 hr it looks like the heavens are going to open. Off upstairs to change into jeans.
