      I remember getting quite a shock when I realised babies I'd delivered were old enough to be university graduates!  :Old:

      I am quite shocked to think I'm old enough to be a GREAT Grandma

      We are only as old as we feel.

      I  try to live sensibly, follow my therapy guidelines care and help others, and it keeps me feeling young too.

      So you should be feeling "early twenties " on that basis ? 

  3. I would like to declare that the OCD-UK office is hot, very hot, a hot sticky sweaty hot.

  5. I also accidentally dropped a puppy on its head today and made it cry....  ooops. All good, he was letting me stroke him a couple of minutes later.   In my defense he wriggled out of my arms as I was lowering him down. 

  6. For the second time in a month my year long wait for a break as been cancelled. Not a happy bunny (again). Although I understand of course, I'm still ******.

      Oh dear Ashley really sorry to read this. 

  7. Top Tip - A big sneeze is not recommended when you have a cracked rib. Geez that hurt. 

  8. Good morning painful rib, thank you for reminding me you're still there and making bending down a breathless exercise.

      Oh dear, have you got any pain-relieving gel, or are Ibuprofen tablets helping?

      I'm still here though?! :D :D 

  10. Just nipped to get lunch from supermarket, it's worse than Christmas! FFS. Boris did not say "Avoid crowded pubs and all crowd in the supermarket instead". Supermarkets will remain open, food will continue to be delivered to supermarkets. I appreciate you're anxious, but come on!

      Keep calm and carry on.  ?

      Thanks Starbuck, yeah I am ok really, just feels a bit tight on the top part of my chest from where I fell. Just bruised really I assume.

    3. Starbuck

      Starbuck

      Glad you're OK. Hopefully the pain from the bruising will settle soon. Maybe apply some heat or muscle rub if you have any. Take care :)

  12. Had two weeks of a virus and bored with it now. Two weeks of coughing violently when I lay down to the point I throw up. Not had full nights sleep in weeks.

      I am with Zoe on this. You should be leaving her in the office and operate from home. 

      But I bet you won't.

      How did it go ashley? Hope you had a great time!

    4. Ashley

      Ashley

      Thank you everyone for sponsoring.  I did it, it was challenging but 95 mile course (a hill was closed due to accident shortening to 95 from 100) but getting to and from start/finish line I did about 110 miles cycling on the day.    I did it in a time of 7hr 40 which is slow, but I had to stop 7 times to get water/pee so that added at least 5 minutes per stop and a few bottlenecks and accidents meant we were held at times so I lost at least 20-30 minutes there.  My target is to get under 7 hours next year.  Will post about an OCD issue later.

  16. I think I have washed my shirt in sweat today.... it's hot!

    1. Gemma7

      Gemma7

      Would recommend washing in soap and water in future :;

      A nod to that greatest of Britons Winston Churchill's famous speech perhaps? 

      "I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat".

      But don’t apply that too literally Ashley :biggrin: - however busy, there should always be another day! 

  17. Having ridden 60 miles on the bike yesterday. I have to say, sitting down is rather uncomfortable today.
