I know you can't make an omelette without breaking eggs but I am in the middle of having 3 windows replaced so the 'Hole in the Wall' gang have been busy and it's bloody  :cold:
Needless to say they took all the old ones out rather than do one at a time. :help:

A raw egg thrown hard enough will break a window.

Don't know if Australia's old PM Tony Abbott did, but he should have. Anyway, Australia now has a new Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull.

I used to go to junior school with a kid called Malcolm Turnbull. On the way walking home, we would stop at this park in a council estate that had swings. We'd get the momentum up and spit at each other as we swung. I'd be a SPITfire and MB would be a MesserSPIT.

Thought you'd all love to hear that.

Just reminds me of Aussie politics, that's all.  :D :beers:

Less unhappy and more uneasy ...

For the first time in a loooong time, I have no OU to get on with ... or to research for the next curse ...  I can pick my life up from wherever it was I hid it way back when ...

Scary ...  :sweat:

As I have an angiogram booked next week and my annual MOT is due, I had to see the flebo plebot vampire last week. "Sharp scratch" said she. "Ouch" said I. Result, one blood stained shirt :veryangry:

Now I know why I don't like looking at this thread. Medical stories.... ah well, I dump iron rich blood monthly. It goes straight into the bin.

(B should look away now !)

They have the catheter gubbins small enough these days that if you are lucky they will be able to go via your wrist, but will prepare your groin at the same time as backup plan.
Make sure they have one of the monitors where you can see it. It is quite entertaining but they wont give you a DVD to take away :(

I've been waiting for a package of some quite expensive bits and bobs.  Parcel Force Tracked...  So, 7am, my phone goes off with a text message,  'got your package, will be delivered today'.  Up I get thinking it may come any minute, but no.  11:20, a knock on the door, the usual postman with my package.  I could have stayed in bed!   So I check the items, all good.  12:45, I decide to have a catchup gonk on the settee.  1:15, text message, 'your package was delivered today'... I'm going to have this here cup of tea, yea, this one, then try again to have an hours gonk...
And tomorrow, I have another tracked package due for delivery. 
" 'O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!' He chortled in his joy.".....
"When in trouble, when in doubt, run (trains) in circles..." etc.
There, doesn't that feel better? 
Lovely!

Very true but you forgot to mention the 2 3/4 hours laid absolutely flat on a hard board my osteoarthritis really loved that
