Ailuros can have anything she wants, she is looking so wonderful.

Family gone now and not much damage done. But out to a fancy lunch today, so the battle continues.

We struggle on, lol.

Kissa glad that the damage limitation set in.

Just received some pics from DD she is in Somerset and luckily she isn't affected but properties around where she works are up to their roof tops (1 storey buildings)

Which part of Somerset is that?

Kissa, nice to see you! Enjoy your lunch! I’m just off to meet some friends for coffee.

My husband said he’d heard the Parrett had flooded! I used to live near there. Hope she can stay safe and dry!

Our little town is suffering again tonight, our home is safe though.

It is all so awful, I hate watching the news. I know Slow has been struggling.

Thinking of you all being slowly submerged there in the UK!! Glad you seem to be OK for the moment, and I hope Sure is not having too many difficulties.

Ailuros, wow, you look fabulous!! Inspirational!! Yes, I got the video done in the end, thanks. Haven't heard yet - and can't post the vid as it's new music which has not yet been performed (having said that, if anyone is hellishly curious, PM me your email ;-) ).

Sorry, no time for proper personals as am stuck in a bit of a depressive paralysis and need to get out as I have another audition tomorrow and need to be positive as I am singing an aria I have never sung before!!! Have stuffed my poor belly with carbs for the sleeping-pill effect, and am heading for a warm bath, but the wind is howling around and that generally leads to antsy insomnia, but fingers crossed!!

Hope you sleep and get your mojo back, Juno.

Had a good DD, it was much needed. Even made it to the gym.

Juno, I hope you’re feeling brighter. We’ve got those unsettling gusts of wind here too.

I’m feeling a bit cold-y so after a little outing to the farmers’ market this morning, I’m just staying tucked up in the warm for the rest of the day. It was nice to see a bit of sunshine, but still felt chilly in the wind.

Hi all, sorry you are fighting a cold Ailuros.

Blustery day here too, though mostly sunny. Faced Brent Cross so deserve a quiet afternoon now.

Hi all,

doing a quick fly by.

Am struck down with a nasty case of accute gastritis and have been having stomach pains for the past week, so during my business trip to the UK as well. Am now sick at home again. I thought things were better yesterday but in the evening I felt ill again. So I'm taking some time out in bed to recover properly!

Hope everyone is well, will check in again when I'm better,

xxx C.

Oh dear Chloe, sorry to hear that. My DD1 has had something similar and is only now feeling better. Keep warm and safe.

Well tomorrow we leave for our Hurtigruten 'cruise' from Bergen to Kirkenes and then back to Trömso. We are planning to avoid alcohol expect on DHs birthday as it is outrageously expensive. I am really hoping not to see a big bounce in my weight (9st and 4ozs this morning.) Packing for freezing weather is odd when skiing is not involved.

Shy, I think I might have got away with the cold! Keeping my fingers crossed. Well done losing a stone. Always encouraging to see the big number change .

I finally finished my old bottle of cod liver oil, so I’ll start the fermented one that I bought after reading something Mimosa posted a while back. That should sort the germs out.

Shy fantastic

Ailuros glad that the cold not amounted to much...ramp up the vit C tablets now.

OMG well that's it...I am not posting my profile picture Shy cos dunno who you would say I look like...Oh yeah probably Angelina Joley NOT lol.

Had a burnt eye all weekend and it hurt mega bad. Stupid contact lens solution that I used...to boring to go into...already bored the pants off of Shy. Anyway it was like acid in my eye and I was in a really bad way with the pain and swollen eye. Go to A & E I hear you say...Yep tried that but a 4 hour wait for a doctor at 12.30 am.!! Try the Walk In same thing 3 hours wait..its a joke...totally a joke. We pay into the system and when we want to use it we can't Even BUPA don't have an accident and emergency situation. Half the people there seemed OK to me...texting, laughing, blah blah and I was rolling around in agony! Lovely triage nurse gave me loads of Saline to wash it out with throughout the night and the rest of weekend. Have to say its on the mend today still very piggy looking (Oh yes I must look like Miss Piggy lol) but I can see to drive and is on the mend with some antiseptic drops that I got as well.Made it to Spin so that was the most important thing to day..lol. And about to embark on the ironing...

Still disillusioned with JUDDD going into 5th week and only lost maybe 1/2 lbs..but will probably try Shy's way of low carb. Maybe the carbs on the UD's are preventing the loss. However, I do love the fact that I can eat some oats and fruit!



Hope that you are all doing OK..

Oh dear!! Mimosa and Lola - hope you both feel better soon!!

Kissa, have a WONDERFUL time, can't wait to see photos!

Ailuros - fermented cod liver oil? Really? Sounds a bit... Icelandic to me!

Shy, congratulations! Great work.

Thanks for the good wishes - ooh that was a nasty day! Luckily recovered enough the next day to do a good audition - but I suspect they will cast older and fatter (strange profession I am in, huh?). Today I girded my loins and did some scary bureaucracy stuff which had been accumulating and filling me with dread, so that's good. The sun's here too (we don't appear to have had a winter yet) and a friend needs my help this evening with some half-full bottles of wine ;-) Need to get back to low-carbing properly, though - was invited to a potluck brunch yesterday, and the natural result of a lot of mainly vegetarian/vegan people who can cook wonderfully was SOOOOO LC-unfriendly!! Delicious, mind, but need to get back on track...

Juno x

Ow Lola that is really nasty, I am sorry you had such a tough time to get seen

I once had a scratched cornea and had to wear a patch for 3 days. Now this might not worry some people but I was born with only colour and form vision in my left eye, no focal ability at all. And of course it was my good eye that was scratched.

I had my first as a baby, nap pie changing was fun!...

Wish I could help with those half drunk bottles Juno....

Glad we seem to have seen off the colds. I am not sure if I am up for fermented cod oil, tell us all about it Ailuros.

The eye sounds awful, Lola! I hope it’s improving now.

I finished off the last of my nice safe lemon flavoured cod liver oil today. I’ll have to face the fermented one tomorrow! It seemed like a good idea at one time…

Morning,

Awh Kissa that does sound awkward with your eye too. Lol with the patch cos I had to wear one on Sunday and was considering funking it up with some nail varnish if it had stayed lol. Luckily don't need any more.

Yes Brave with the cod liver oil Ailuros..good luck

Good to see you back again Juno and with a hectic social life as ever makes sticking to any kind of play difficult I know.

Eye getting better by the day still sore but not half as bad. Daren't wear any make up though and that will be a tough call tomorrow having to go to work with no make up on YIKES...I.ll wear a pair of my funky Primani glasses to divert the shock ha ha.

Had a really good low carb UD yesterday so watch this space..hopefully low carb as well as JUDDD will kick those scales downwards.

Just looked outside....more rain...the poor people flooded out.

OK Off to body pump have a good day whatever you are doing

Well kissa is away for sure!! Which reminds me I have booked for end of march, 10 days in Egypt CANNOT wait!!! Would dearly love to lose half a stone by then

Lola I have arranged to drive so I am not tempted by drink which will help and I know she's doing salmon en croute but I won't eat the pastry. Not sure what dessert is but I shall pick at whatever. Fingers crossed

I don’t think Kissa’s headed for the sun though! Where are you going in Egypt? Somewhere warm and sunny sounds lovely!

I’ve just booked a trip to, to France, but not till July.

At the moment, just wearing an outfit that doesn’t include a quilted gilet and a fleece sounds good! The latest on our heating is a letter from the council wanting more information before they will (for £90 an hour!!!) consider looking at our pre-application inquiry for changing the way the boiler vents. I think the weather might be warm before the heating system.
