Hi all

Sorry I'm away so often ....am v busy, plus I do sometimes post elsewhere!

Would love to meet up. Looks like May is turning out to be the favoured month. I can do most days but not 9th to 18th as am going to see Pasha Kovalev from SCD in his show , then going away for a few days (events not related to each other, honest, guv!) Am also going to see Vincent and Flavia in Midnight Tango on 4th. You will gather I loved SCD this year!

Weekends are much the best for me as I pretty well work full time at the moment (retirement, what's that? ). I am happy with any meal ......perhaps brunch or lunch would be best?

Anyway hope we can sort something out, sure we will

Lindy xx


All the SCD sounds lovely..........


so we need to sort out a date in may.......and then work out where we are going to go....

its sounds good.


I m sitting in front of a lovely warm fire....relaxing...Half term has started.


When do you stop working full time Lindy? I thought you were meant to be retired?

The love of my life was too busy at work this week to even buy me a card......


I wasnt too bothered.....but just a bit sad .........and thought he should have made a bit more of an effort..... He is taking me out to dinner tonight to say sorry....


now should I accept this as a peace offering and forgive him? (cos he does usually remember these things)?????



in a few days time I will be laughing about it....

decisions decisions.......

When do you stop working full time Lindy? I thought you were meant to be retired?
Yep, I'm looking forward to some light-hearted dance!

I retired from salaried employment in December 2011, but since then have been offered, and accepted, so much work on a self-employed basis, that I am actually back to fulltime work....hope that makes sense!

Early in 2012 I did start to enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle, going to exhibitions etc - and out to lunch . However, over the last six months I've taken on a bit more than I meant to. My current projects run until July this year (mostly) so I aim to review the situation in the summer .

And I am keen to see you guys again.....will have to stop here as I don't have my reading specs with me Back later, Lindy xx

Its so hard to get a decent balance at times isnt it...

We did have a lovely meal last night. Very civilised.



Nyannie how are you feeling?


I like the dots, But its so hard to go back to normal punctuation on emails...especially !! Im ok with most other forms. But I went to school at a time when you were meant to use expressive punctuation, so my knowledge of some of the niceties of grammar is frustrating. I spent years trying to work out when to use and when not to use commas and semi colons. dots are much safer.......



I still need TV and books advice...

We are getting into The Followers on Sky atlantic with Kevin Bacon, which is very clever...but I need a few more light entertainment programmes. My girls still watch endless repeats of shows like Friends,, and its that kind of programme, Im trying to find a more up to date version of....

Morning all

Off to London shortly to meet friends for lunch and do some shopping.

Nice of John to tweet his support. I am sure it was much appreciated.

Work-life balance is difficult, I find I have almost no time to do housework - try to keep kitchen and bathrooms clean - the rest is intellectual clutter.

I made dinner and bought my o/h a rasper! Very romantic!

Well, hope everyone has a lovely day. I am getting so busy I don't know whether I'm coming or going - at least it keeps my mind off the constant pain I have from my feet.

Good morning all, hoping you are well.

I see John (I'm not sure it was John) tweeted to Ann, which is nice.

I say I'm not sure it's John as he's hyphenated his name - he's never done that before - and tweeted in a completely different style (all caps at beginning of words). However, it's lovely for Ann and I'm sure she's very pleased

edit: As somebody has pointed out to me, phones often auto-capitalise and hyphenate ... I wasn't doubting just questioning

The question is ... did YOU bother buying him a card or anything - Valentines work both ways it's not just for the women

Hello to you all on this lovely sunny day.

Had a busy week knee deep in material, as I've been making curtains for my son's campervan. Been on a deadline as his partner is camping in it for the next nine days as she was invited to take her animal business to a top children's attraction in W.Sussex for half term.

Rather her than me, I heard last night that she was nestled inside a sleeping bag wrapped in a 15tog double quilt with a single quilt over that and that it was COLD!!

Now have some catching up to do on here, back in a bit.......

Told my mate I had a hot date with an Italian Stallion - sounds a lot better than saying I'm sitting at home eating a Findus Lasagne for one.
