    I think the Himalayan Balsam is more unsightly than the pigeon.

    I am in Hunstanton. I swear I just saw (vague description coming) the really friendly girl that used to work at asda but then worked for BandM. Sounded and looked like her.

    If it's who I think you mean, she used to holiday in Hunstanton.

    It always feels slightly sadistic putting the tent back up the day after we get back from holiday.

    Spent half an hour swearing at the computer as it wouldn't download Skype for business ready for my interview next week!

    I was ready to chuck the bloody thing out the window!

    Turns out the reason it wouldn't download is because it's already installed!

    Oops!

    We parted on good terms and he didn't seem to feel the need to break any of my limbs.

    Same here. We never saw any mozzies in Poole , or whilst in Worcester . Come back home and in seconds of getting out of the car received several bites .
    Hubby can walk through swarms of them and not get bitten. I've got repellent on and they still can't leave me alone.

    I discovered this evening that super unleaded petrol is a good mozzy repellent. I'd not recommend coating yourself in it too often though.

    Shouldn't have cheered so much when the dentist cancelled my appointment in June.

    After suffering pain the last few days, turning to excruciating pain today , decided to be brave and ring the dentist...

    Lady who answered was only an answering service, who then passes my details and symptoms on to the dentist receptionist the following day. Got to wait for them to decide to call me back sometime now :|

    In the mean time, as copious amounts of paracetamol and ibuprofen aren't doing much to ease the throbbing pain, looks like having to break the diet and knock a few 'apple flavoured' cans back to knock me out. :pint:
