That's great news she's doing well. Having been on the receiving end I always say the hands on folks are wonderful, sadly let down by office wallahs IMHO.

Glad things turned out well and as has been said, it's the people on the front line who need to be congratulated.  :thumbsup:

SWMBO discharged yesterday, so all OK  :thumbsup:

usual goody bag of various meds etc, and due to see the GP as soon as we can get her an appointment.

all in all, a great outcome, thanks for your good wishes, duly passed on, and a big thank you to the front line staff, as always.

Offered a new job today and I start on Wednesday. Got an instant pay rise of £2k too when I said I had another offer elsewhere. Finally passed the £40k salary target  :D

Good for you @Trainfish and congratulations - does that mean more N gauge?  ???

Great stuff!

Congrats and don’t work too hard, else I won’t be able to finally visit one day and run some traction in proper colours around your layout  ;D

Erm yes, probably although I really should get some more track down first.

You're always welcome Adam but I'm not so sure about those "proper colours". Mind you, there's not much blue/grey which I don't have so maybe you can open my eyes and my wallet to model another different era too  :no:

It's a lot quicker to get to Bath and I get to travel on a train for 11 minutes. 14 to get back for some reason though.

Calm down Adam, I never said convert, you know I'll never be cured of the blue/grey era. You're always welcome. If you want to run something on a decent loop (about 12m round) you may need to be quick as the Kato track will need to be lifted once I start proper tracklaying. I reckon that going on past progress you only have about 2 years to get here  :doh:

Oops, I seem to have just bought another blue class 40 to add to the 3 which I already have  :goggleeyes:

I just had one of those annoying recorded calls about "the accident I had recently". Started with the usual silence at the other end when I answered. Then a recorded "Hi my name's Isabelle calling about the accident you had recently, is that right?" Now, I'm not 100% happy with life right now, probably about 80%, so I swore and told her, knowing she's a recording to ":censored: off". The recorded response was, "Ok, sorry about that, we'll take your name off our lists, hope you have a great day". I was expecting a "Sorry, I didn't understanjd that" response but it seems the auto response machine has been trained quite well  :thumbsup:

Good result, if they actually take you off their list. :thumbsup:

Never had such a call myself, but I guess I might answer with:

“Blimey! :o. That was quick. I’ve only just put my trousers in the washing machine!”

 :D
