Thanks, All.
Bit of a sleepless night as I could not get comfortable and then the cat wouldn't wait for his breakfast this morning so up at 05.45 ::) Back to bed to watch the news and doze a while. It's quite painful to actually stand and walk initially but then, apart from a constant tugging pain in a band round my lower back, it's actually not so bad. I do take Anadin 'Back & Muscle' pain tablets or 'the little green workers' as I call them and the Ibuprofen in them helps a lot. I hope, with care, it will ease itself out with some gentle exercise. Saturday will be the next challenge as I need to drive to the supermarket for sustenance for both the cat and myself. I'll have a test in the cul-de-sac tomorrow.
My brother-in-law is a vet and he knows about my back issues. Often he has said my cat is OK but I need putting down :worried:

Best wishes.
Do take it easy though.
If you really find driving too painful get the supermarket to deliver. We canít have the cat going hungry now can we.
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :

Made a mistake today. I ordered some clothes from M & S on line and went into the local store to pick them up. Normally a 5 min job. Not today. I joined a queue of about 8 people most of whom seemed to be returning their complete set of Christmas presents. About 30 mins later I got my goods.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

I also collected an order from M&S this afternoon (served straight away). In my local store they have a dedicated till that only does orders/collections. All returns have to go through the main tills

Our store also has a dedicated collection point, but it was shut and all collections were from the returns counters. Just as we were leaving, an assistant went along the now much longer queue and asked if anyone was just picking up orders. Typical.

Kangaroo kicked a big hole, about 500mmx100mm, in a lounge room window. :o
Blood in pools and bloody footprints so I hope it is still ok. :worried:

$300 to fix.

Oh dear! Yeah, they're not cheap to replace. Had a similar experience, but the culprit was a labrador.

I guess Skippy is now limpy!

We went down to the Ropetackle Arts Centre in Shoreham this evening to see one of our favourite Irish folk bands. Not a pleasant journey down, but you expect that in January. Went to the desk to pick up our tickets (ordered online, which we have done many times before) and they couldn't find them. Concern and puzzlement on our part. Fortunately, I found the email confirmation on my phone and showed it to the lady. She checked my account on her computer and asked who we had come to see. Lunasa, we said. Not tonight, said she, tonight it's Pee Wee Ellis Funk Ensemble! We were 5 days too early...  :doh: Retreat in confusion and embarrassment to a local hostelry for a swift half to make the journey worthwhile.

Still, at least the diary malfunction was in the right direction. If we'd been 5 days too late we'd have been gutted.

Cheers,

Chris

That is definitely an 'oops' moment! Still, look on the bright side, you got your swift half and you can look forward to going all over again.  :thumbsup:

Chris, that is classic and I suspect that some of the replies will belong in the happy thread! Anyway, enjoy the concert and let's hope the journey is not so bad second time around!

Bit of a sickner today I have been to the dentist. My crown kept coming loose, I must have paid to have it glued back numerous times. The dentist said he wanted to sort it properly so I finally agreed, its cost me small fortune, put it this way my wallet hurts more than my mouth.
