good morning +

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

Sorry to hear things are a bit tough at the moment Pp ... that tour sounds like some grand ‘me’ time.

Be prepared for the recommended bra to fit ‘quite firmly’ around the rib cage to start with. It does ease but unless it’s a firm fit around, the bra will dig into your shoulders and cause back, neck and shoulder pain.

I’ve heard that tour is good
I really should go to the Borough more

Sorry to hear Mr P is not doing so well, but a craving for Euthymol does have its humour Horrible stuff imho but does make you wonder if perhaps he has an off taste in his mouth, which could be a sign of underlying infection

I've had a couple of bras fitted ... one at Rigby and Peller, who, like Bravissimo, just take a look then tell you how bad your current bra fits you. My expensive fitted bra made me look and feel like a maiden aunt with a bolster across my chest ... and never was as comfortable as they said it would be ... so £65 down the drain. The second was in Canada in 2018 ... went to a bra boutique.. again a personally fitted (and altered) bra at great expense ... looks and fits beautifully until I move around when I feel like I am in as straight jacket :( .... I've never worn that one for more than 5 minutes :rolleyes:

I use a small place in a York, but she trained at Rigby and Peller. No tape measure in sight, all done by eye. Mine are all Prima Donna, certainly not cheap but last well. Although she all ways tells me off for not hand washing them - a cardinal sin in her eyes.

Have been going there ten plus years, she keeps comprehensive records of what you bought, size, colour etc so I sometimes give her a call, pay over the phone and she posts it out to me. Handy if I haven’t got a reason to go into town.

They certainly feel firm around the rib cage when first put on but soon ‘bed in’. Wouldn’t go back to anything else now. Knickers are from M &S, I didn’t realise that you could buy them anywhere else :lol:

no longer buy knickers (or anything) from marks and sparks. haven't for a few decades.
i bought them from matalan, on the way home from the training day. to get them anywhere else i would have gone into town paid for a carpark, possibly got to a shop after closing time and got caught in the traffic queue for most of the way home - all of which would have made the grundies more expensive and my frustration level much higher.
the problem with bras is that if they fit snugly/firmly around the ribs when the lungs aren't fully inflated, like it is said you should, i can't breath in properly without feeling like my chest is being crushed. maybe i have big lungs!

ps. the knickers are probably made in the same factory as m&s's anyway!

Good morning
It has been very wet and windy here so far but is slowly drying and brightening, but still not looking pleasant out there

On a brighter note, I have the first jug of daffodils of the season :)

I never understand why it’s so hard to find bras with a reasonably wide band under the bust, if you are at all fleshy a thin band is bound to act like cheese wire

Have a good day everyone

Bras, M&S, knickers, France (a specific brand I like, that can be found in hypermarche and Monoprix. Nothing fancy or pretty!) or Amazon (again, a specific brand). It's taken me years to find ones I find comfy. Tights are still a problem, especially now Boots have stopped doing my favourite (if not very hard wearing) with cashmere ones.

I am feeling a bit soggy. It seems my shoes are not waterproof. Seasalt coat is though! Play was very good last night, but a late night for me, so tired.

Good morning all

Our M&S is where I get off the bus in the city ... very convenient.

A bit of paperwork has been done and our holiday at the end of May paid for 8-) Today's supper is another 'easy' one of W'rose Chicken kievs, baby potatoes and the last of our frozen runner beans so there's not a lot to do except suck cough sweets and read. Not a sign of brightness out there and it's very wet underfoot, so apart from having topped up the bird feeders there's nothing likely to be done outside.

There's a very handsome magpie sitting on the tv aerial opposite ... I suspect he's watching the bluetits prospecting nest sites.

Have a good day all

Interesting observation Sue. After Suffs mentioned her recent purchase I looked online at the styles offered and noticed that they all had very wide bands beneath the bust. My first thought was that the band would be prone to doubling up with wear rather than staying flat. I have never had a wide band there, nor a cheese wire effect - except possibly with the skimpiest designs which are not really meant for continual everyday wear. I have plenty of flesh ;).

bread is baking, some more will go in the tube when this is out.
possibly going over to a friend's later this afternoon.
a few bits to do today but nothing pressing.
knickers are comfy, coffee in hand, what more can i ask‽

Mornig. It's not raining! The sky was a bit peachy-pink, moments ago. Now gold with fast moving clouds. Rain forecast for around the time I go home. I'd quite like to not wear a raincoat some time...

I anticipate having to accommodate a lot more philosophy feedback today. This bit of the process is, I suppose, bound to go through a lot more stages than is usual for a book, given a) the book's nature and b) the company's owners having expressed excitement about it (before having read it.)

Not a lot else on other than a man coming to look at our sticking doors. I hope he will take the job on. I daren't use the back door and the French windows have a large gap due to not being able to shut (or lock!) them properly.

I hope everyone has a good day.

It’s not raining here either but apparently it’s on it’s way :(

Got to get on with tidying up, going for a hearing test then to visit my friend in a convalescent home in Wimbledon. I never go to Wimbledon, if it’s not raining I’ll have a look around

good morning, all.
dark - another half hour till sunrise but the birds are singing so not raining - and a bit breezy.
the forecast says it's going to rain for most of the day but with a patch of full sun at eleven - and that it's raining now.
off for another training day. the one on tuesday was for giving their medication to service users.
it's something i have never done and am unlikely to do -although i was asked to be with someone who needed it last week. i pointed out that i hadn't had the training so was assigned to someone else. i won't rightly be able to do that again - even though the chap has said he was going to kill me - but i bet he says that to all the girls.
i must get going a little earlier as i hit the rush hour queue and arrived with two minutes to spare the other day (not that they started on the dot - and i wasn't the last to arrive).
fifteen minutes until sunrise.
have a good day, everyone.

Good morning
We have a bit of sun, forecast says sunnier and drier but cooler In the SE today and it looks as if this is the case. We had enough wind overnight for the rain to hit the windows sideways
I’m off to Brighton, so I hope to see the sea in the sunshine

Good morning ... :wave: We had torrential rain in the night ... my water feature (only a stream that goes nowhere ;) ) is overflowing onto the garden on either side :o It's now dry and sunny, so hope it keeps like this for the rest of the day. Off to Zumba soon, then later today, out for a meal with a zumba pal, then Pinewood Cinema to see Knives Out :tu:

Good morning all
We have a lovely sunny morning here in Norfolk ... I wanted to go out and do stuff but when I start being active the cough starts again and I feel exhausted (sorry to keep going on about it ... you must be nearly as fed up with it as I am :oops: ).
OH is here today so I’m going to drive up to the garden centre and he’ll pop in and buy some bird food then he’ll do the same at Wrose, but for human food this time.
I have a complicated edging band to sort out for the jacket I’m knitting, so that’ll keep me occupied for the rest of the day.
Have a good day all :D

A little overcast here & chilly. like you Suffs I have been buying bird food this week, bought a 12.75Kg bag on QVC, my first shop with them so got £5 reduction, it came to £22.50, my biggest spend though is on Nyjer seed for the Gold Finches, trouble is so much goes to waste, the ground underneath is black with seed so I have just orderd two feeders with trays to try and contain it, so this month over £40 spent but think it is worth it.
I went out earlier took down the feeders to clean & refill I moved the feeder to a new position in the garden, within 2 minutes there were 6 Goldfinches on it, they must have been waiting for me to clear off

Overcast here, but at least not raining... yet.

Hicky, you are lucky. I see goldfinches once or twice a year if that, and never more than one at a time. Niger seeds don't seem to attract them. I guess the population is small in my neck of the woods. Although of course, I am also at work most of the time so not clear what comes and what doesn't.
You've both reminded me, I am nearly out of seed too.

I think the bluetits are nesting in our house wall again. I was also contemplating getting a nesting box with camera this year, but not sure where to put it. (Or which one to get.)

V busy so far at work this morming - indexing a book. Finishing early to take Basil to the vet's for a progress assessment and another blood test, poor lamb.

good morning, all.
we had hail and the temperature on the dashboard flashing an ice warning and three degrees on the way home yesterday afternoon. i think that's the coldest we've been so far this winter. i moved my clivia plants to a more sheltered place when i got home, just in case.
a prediction of full sun, today.
i will be in a darkened room watching pottery and glass films. why is it always sunny on this day, every january‽
my partner will be baking a loaf, out in the sun, and having a go at the potatoes that were on the jamie and jimmy show, last night.
our ip address landed on a banned board member's again last night, blocking me from signing in. sometimes, things performed in your own interest do not work.
at the training day, yesterday, on person centred support, we did a paired exercise that involved sitting opposite someone and copying a picture, pinned behind one partner and described by the other - without words. the first one where both people couldn't speak, the second where the drawer could ask questions but the describer couldn't answer with words. the thing i found interesting was that quite a number, including the person describing for me, couldn't transpose the image and so the resulting drawing was a mirror image of the one pinned to the wall (not that everyone got the pictures anyway!). ours were pretty damn close other than the transposition.
try it sometime - an interesting exercise.
have a glorious day, everyone

good morning, all.
brightening. the forecast is for day long, full sun.
my comment, yesterday, about film day always being sunny, was reiterated by at least three other people at the meeting.
there were some interesting films and lots of good things to eat. i am always amazed at the variety of food bought to meetings even when there are only a few attendees (there were probably around forty there yesterday, from as far away as exeter). the exception to the food variety was at the club's christmas 'do' (for learning disabled adults) when the spread consisted of a vast supply of sweet stuff, a few crisps and a few (meat) sausage rolls all - from packets. no help by carers to make anything, which seems a missed opportunity.
better move. we are off elsewhere.
sun is getting up, too.
have a glorious day, everyone.
