  1. Really tired of the Neverending Cough of 2017 now!

    1. Scorcher

      Take huge doses of Vitamin D3, preferably with Vitamin K2. I take drops and they really help during winter- you are probably very deficient at this time of year if you don't supplement. Look up Nutri Vitamin D3 and K2 drops- they do the job!

      It's even worse when you are trying to get to sleep at night, as well as when you are trying to eat. :angry:

      Tell me about it. Night before last I barely coughed all night. Last night I was awake for hours! Got a dentist appointment this morning which should be fun as I start coughing when I lie down.

  2. What sort of subhuman steals thousands of pounds worth of NHS equipment?

      It is beyond belief that you'd steal from a service trying to help you which then punishes others.

  3. That face you pull when a relative goes on an incredibly racist and inaccurate rant. Yeah, that.

    1. Nick L

      Thankfully I don't have any relatives like that. My Dad's a Leaver and jokingly refers to me as "his communist son" but that's about...

  4. I have achieved never before discovered levels of procrastination today.

      Just buy everyone socks and be done with it.

  5. Don't you hate it when you feel uneasy but you don't know why?

      I blame the long hours of darkness

      Those moments of unfathomable anxiety, bordering on dread of you don't know what. I know them.

      Go for a walk/run/cycle, read a book - distract your mind and body...

  6. Does anyone else get those fake dodgy virus pages pop up when you click on topics on this website occasionally?

    1. lassie23

      lassie23

      not on net weather, but when i watch sports streams:ninja:

  7. I am craving a holiday so badly. Can someone confiscate my laptop and credit card please.

    1. lassie23

      Don't visit amazon's sale.

      All fast food outlets are last resort for me!

      Not often I have the stuff but I'd always eat the skin.

      best part of it IMO

    4. Nick L

      Nick L

      Exactly! If you're just going to throw the skin away you might as well just cook some plain chicken drumsticks at home.

  9. Driving during the school run just reminds me how many people are not fit to drive.

    1. Nick L

      Nick L

      I saw a motorcyclist run a red light, on a busy road, in the dark, with no lights on the other night. There are bad drivers out there but bikers make up most of them IMO!

    2. Grimers

      Grimers

      Totally agree.

  10. Having one of those weeks where I wonder if I'm missing something and I'm actually the insane one.

    1. Lauren

      Lauren

      Members of my family massively overreacting to things. Wondering if I've missed a memorable about what I'm supposed to be at fault for?!?

    2. alexisj9

      alexisj9

      I've felt like that a few times, normally get a letter a few days later about missing an appointment. Sucks to have a bad memory. 

    3. Spikecollie

      Spikecollie

      Families can be hotbeds of over-sensitivity. Step back, let it all calm down and then maybe have a conversation! After coming from a family background where this was very much the norm, and discussion wasn't, I find my husband's family a rock for me. Yes, we have our differences, but we can talk about anything...

  11. Timezones never cease to blow my mind.

    1. Lauren

      I'm still here. It's just weird communicating with people who are going to bed as you are waking up etc.

  12. I think my body is malfunctioning. Everything is going wrong!

    1. lassie23

      Probably say you have a virus, or if lucky, you might get a blood test out of it. You have been under a lot of stress lately.

  13. It would be a fairer world if the pain and emotional baggage one person causes another was given to one who hurt the other, if that pain was avoidable. 

    1. CreweCold

      CreweCold

      It sure would. Take it you have a general interest in people and their observed behaviour?

    2. Lauren

      Lauren

      I work in mental health, so I see the effects of it every day. You could say that!

    3. CreweCold

      Awesome, bet it's a hard but rewarding field to work in. Did Psychology up to A level but dropped it for uni and decided to carry on with Sociology instead (along with geog). The study of people is fascinating isn't it!

      Well yeah. I'm happy now. I have a new boyfriend. That's why i find it so baffling.

      Glad to here you are happy:good: Yup that is very odd.

    4. Dami

      Dami

      Hi Lauren, glad to see things are looking up for you now :) My guess is she's blocked you because she doesn't want any 'hate mail' especially if they don't know you have a new man :D I would Block them both so they can't see how great your life is now and keep your head up high, you survived girl!

      I'm sure you looked fine....It's the first thought that goes through your head, 'oh I look like crap' when you see an ex; it's just a natural response I suppose.

      Every other person I see is an ex of mine so if I thought like that I'd never leave the house. :pardon:

      I think I've somehow got hayfever and a bad cold at the same time. I sound like a pug trying to breathe, everything hurts and my face is leaking. It's such a sexy time.

  18. I hate to sound so stereotypically British, but how crazy is this weather recently?

    1. Spikecollie

      Spikecollie

      Isn't spring wonderful! Here in Limousin, France it's warmer this evening than mid-afternoon. I should have cycled now and wouldn't have needed full gloves. We haven't got the hail sleet and snow, and no storms, but the wind has been cold in the shade. The plants are a nightmare though, warm in the day then white frost at night - I can't keep up with covering and uncovering!

    2. Thundery wintry showers

      Thundery wintry showers

      I've been following the weather in Munich, Germany since January on the webcam https://www.webcam-4insiders.com/en/weather-M%C3%BCnchen-Webcam/13966-Webcam-M%C3%BCnchen-weather.php and can confirm that it has also snowed there for three consecutive days.  Munich is a few hundred metres above sea level though, and I think lower-lying parts of Germany mainly just had rain.

  19. Hello people. Have I missed anything good?

    1. William Grimsley

      William Grimsley

      To answer your question, not much except it snowed here yesterday!

    2. Lauren

      Lauren

      I'm very good thank you, William. Was hoping we would see snow by now, but sadly not. I hope you're well.

  20. Really annoys me when I'm driving during the school run and parents just let their kids run out in the road without making them stop and not reprimanding them. Teach your kids road sense!

    1. Nick L

      Nick L

      Oh but their little darlings can't be wrong!

    2. Dami

      Dami

      oi. My little one is told off quite loudly if she runs near a road, be it school run or not, and same if she doesn't show any manners either.

      It is stupidity for any parent to allow a child to just run into any road and not say anything. My word it scared the life out of me the one time she went to do it.

  21. So much stress. Don't know how I'm going to get through this.

      It's just I've lost my love, my home, my car, my financial stability all in one go. It's a lot to deaal with emotionally and financially, especially when it was unexpected.

    3. William Grimsley

      William Grimsley

      Great words, Spike! I've gone through the same as you and it is not nice at all!

    4. Spikecollie

      Spikecollie

      You haven't lost yourself and don't. Finances can be rebuilt, you can drive a very old car for a while, and you can get the money stabilised. What matters is you. Love yourself otherwise no one else can...

      Many hugs...living in France alone has had its good times, but I could have cried out for my beloved man who's waiting to come over, when I had my horrible experience with the storm on Monday, and all the residue has left me in floods tonight on the phone to my best friend. We'll get through it and I'll hug my soul mate before too long and you'll find your's...

  22. So after coping pretty well with all of this breakup, my body decides to make me cry in the sandwich shop. Thanks brain for the random bad day!

    1. William Grimsley

      William Grimsley

      It's called "Being too strong for too long.". It happened to me on New Years Day after trying too hard to cope. It's just natural and things will get better. :)

  23. Ugh. When is this going to get easier? :(

    1. Dami

      Dami

      I went through a very very messy break up a (now) good few years back and I know how you feel.  You probably don't feel like going out or doing much, but if money allows go out for a nightout or do something you like. Failing that, get your hair done or pamper yourself one evening - face packs, bath, glass of wine... You are worth it after all!

      It's all about feeling good about yourself and knowing that no matter how crap you feel inside you look nice on the outside. ( a bonus if you bump into 'you know who') 

      One more thing I would say is don't rush it. Concentate on yourself, try to have fun even do things you wanted to do before and for some reason couldn't. (for me this was going to exercise classes with friends)

      And remember it's ok to cry.
