Boss is back. Boss is narky.
DROOPY DRAWERS will be back today
I can't WAIT to hear about her CHRITHMATH
It just took me 140 calls to get in contact with my GP.
I hate that. What you're supposed to do if you're old, insane, unable to reach a phone at 7:55am or can't find your redial button I don't know
OH GREAT HERE'S DROOPY DRAWERS
Sounds like me today
Our biggest client normally sends about 40 jobs a day. Yesterday they sent 125, clearly clearing out their backlog from Christmas. This morning I get an angry phone call demanding to know why we haven’t processed 60 of them yet.
WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?
UGH! That's one of my pet hates. "Morning, we deserved a Christmas holiday but you obviously didn't so giddy up!" FUCK OFF.
Jesus. I can only admire yr persistence.
That’s pretty much it. Not to add the three companies who decided to drop tender documents on my desk over the Christmas break all with deadlines of next week.
And what’s wrong with Peacocks?
It's all that preening. Yeah, yeah, we know you have feathers, do you know what we've got? Guns and ovens.
They’re testy little buggers as well. They used to have some at the petting zoo in Bolton, and they always looked like they’d have your hand off given the chance.
Have you ever tried deep fried peacock?
Hey, hang on a minute, we don't deep fry EVERYTHING in Scotland.
Mind you, I had deep field Lynx Africa last night. Delicious.
I presumed we were talking about the shop...
I'm still wobbly from New Year's. this is a new low for me
I was way too ambitious with my gym sesh yesterday. I'm literally unable to move my legs.
come on baby let's do it
I don't really have much to add today. Work life work work life life work work work.
Good job I haven’t made it to Kumamoto yet, they just had a big earthquake
That’ll be fun from Saturday
where are you now?
if you have time, Mt Unzen across the strait from Kumamoto is quite nice. but as an active volcano that last erupted in 1991 it might not be the most suitable destination post-earthquake...
So many volcanoes, so little time!
We were, I was paying tribute to a classic tag but deliberately misunderstood ButterTart for weak comic effect. My head is in an odd space today.
So my Mum, who hasn't been herself for the last year but hasn't really been listening to my or my brother's attempts to help (have a cleaner, why not downsize the house etc. etc.) has just been diagnosed with Parkinson's. HAPPY NEW YEAR
Sorry to hear that. I think CBD is meant to be very good for any symptoms, I know it gets touted as a solution to everything but I recall one of the charities being very supportive of the government changing its mind about medical cannabis last year.
It may ALL be worth it to see my Mum off her tits
I'm doing that really stupid thing of looking up advice and then worrying far more than I ever would have.
75% of Parkinson's patients suffer with dementia?
There's a lot they can do these days but that's still a shock to hear, I'm sure.
Yeah, I know it's not END OF THE WORLD or anything, but just makes you think about the olds' mortality, I guess...
I've still got some capsules of a nootropic brain enhancer called noopept that apparently has been researched as a neuroprotector against degenerative brain conditions, if you really want to get her popping stuff ;)
I don't know about her, but I'll have a bash!
I'm sorry Shee. Obviously you have questions, but if you can, try to avoid googling stuff. I'd ask for advice from Parkinson's UK. They will be a lot more measured and realistic.
It was there I found that dementia stat
Sorry to be a MEL but WHAT THE HELL IS IT THAT YOU BUY FROM PRET on COLD DAYS and HAUL BACK TO THE OFFICE? It comes in a CARDBOARD BOX and stinks like TWIGLETS coated in MARMITE and ROASTED FOR THREE WEEKS
Anyway sorry to hear about OLD MA SHEE. But yes I don't think the prognosis is as grim as it was not so long ago. I'm sure my mother is going DOOLALLY too although IT'S NOT ALWAYS EASY TO TELL
I don't know what that is, but I WANT SOME
I KNOW RIGHT but you don't want to SMELL IT and NOT EAT IT
Oh GREAT DROOPY DRAWERS is BACK from LUNCH
Unlike Mr S's mother who has ALWAYS BEEN COMPLETELY HATSTAND
Sounds right up my street
