    Last year I kept hearing an owl in my local woods when I walked the dog in the morning. Heard one for the first time this year.

    Looking forward to woodpeckers in the spring now.

    I envy him not one jot.
    He's just thinking about it the wrong way.

    Luckily theres no liars, wasters, dreamer, weirdos and gold diggers IRL

    If 'you' aren't any good at dating sites, they won't be any good for you.

    Sounds like your mate needs to educate himself. Plenty of 'help' on utube if you're prepared to put some time into it.

    I met Mrs Adamski online, had loads of sex with unsuitable freaks first though...tell him to man up, and learn when to just say “nope, you are a bit mental for me!”
    Date one is coffee at lunch time, lowest investment of time, and money, that way.

    I have had a rough day, but a couple of friends really went the extra mile for me...even offering to fly across to France to drive my car home, how cool is that!

    i have had some of my faith in human nature restored!

    What GP says really.

    I know I'm a few hours away from your place, but please know that I'd always be willing to drive over and help if you guys need someone xxx

    Alongside all the politics and business stress, I've spend the last two months getting more and more stressed that the symptoms I had from my head butting the tarmac haven't gone. (And obviously, stress makes all the symptoms worse!!)

    Was too scared to go to a doctor because they weren't 'that' bad and the doc might stop me driving (Driving is one thing I am comfortable with, weirdly!!)


    Anyway. Long chats with a girlfriend here over the last couple of days and it turns out that the same symptoms are part of peri-menopause!!! Ok, I'm not happy that my hormones are starting to fck me up, but it's way better than losing my marbles!!

    So today - despite the ongoing stressed, I'm feeling pretty good!! (Ok, I'd rather be younger or male, but hey, at least I'm probably not losing my marbles!!!)

    Walked from Fenchurch St. Station to work this morning. Its only about 2.5 miles but I did it in 25 minutes and thats in a rush hour with people everywhere. Wasn't that long ago I couldn't walk 500 yards and I'd do well to remember that when i'm feeling frustrated at the restrictions of the new knee joint!

    To tell the truth, I thought you'd lost them long ago.

    10 minute miles? That's seriously fast walking.

    6 miles per hour.

    A good walking pace is nearer 4mph iirc.

    14 minute miles is still pretty quick*. Well done.

    I seem to recall you were trying to lose weight. Is that also going well?



    * I.e. quicker than me.
