  1. Learning then hard work  makes changes, new habits will keep them going.

      Loving your status Roy, making positive changes can make the difference :57439eb60db27_thumbup:

  2. If we help someone else today it may take the focus away from us and our issues. 

  3. When the OCD bites, we do need to carry on as normal,  not give it belief.

      That is so true Roy :57439eb60db27_thumbup:

      Exactly Roy, no matter how difficult it may seem :yes:

  4. Getting autumnal. My SAD lightbox is up and running.

      That's great Roy, you can come and do mine then :lol:

  5. Maybe doctors might soon "prescribe" OCD-UK membership to help their patients.

      LOL! It is so true :yes:

  6. OCD bags front seat and hogs our life. CBT helps put it into the wings.

      Hang on in there Roy, I have every faith you will soon be back in the driver's seat :)

      Hope you can see OCD in your rear-view mirror.

      I am glad you feel better Roy :thumbup: That is really good news :57439eb60db27_thumbup:

      Yes better in some ways. But very tired physically and emotionally this evening. Will say more on my thread in the members' forum.

      Hang in there Roy, and try to relax as much as possible :flowers: You can do it!:57439eb60db27_thumbup:

  8.  In denial of global warming/climate change? Just review the last two weeks in UK. 

  9. It's so hot I just feel I have to to go to the pub for a cooling pint!

      I follow my urologist's advice and drink a lot of water and squash as it helps to keep the urinary system in good trim (I have kidney stones). 

      So I am just drinking rather more than normal. And boy does it slip down right now 💦

      Oh yes, it's always best to keep well hydrated in this weather :yes: 

      I've just started drinking remix vimto squash and it's delicious :)

      It's cooler but still clammy, but not having to drink so much. 

      It was just the right temperature down at "The Cobblers" football stadium 🏟 last night, and the location (it's recessed and surrounded by high grass borders) was magical, as the grass had just been cut and the smell was divine. 

      And, of course, I had to have a drop of sponsor Carlsberg's ale (they have a massive brewery in Northampton). 

  10.  Wimbledon, cricket World Cup final, British GP - gonna be a sporting couch potato!

      The Tennis and Cricket were both amazing events. I watched the cricket mainly as its rare to have access to it on terrestrial TV I flicked to the tennis in the closing stages. What a day for sport!

      Can't remember a better all-round day, bearing in mind a fabulous British grand prix too. 

      Plus I love the Tour de France. 

  11. The village air smells beautifully sweet tonight - it's good to be surrounded by trees! 

  12. A pal of mine objects to me wearing shorts around the village!

      Oh dear, maybe he isn't a confident enough person to wear shorts and show his legs so a little jealousy crept in maybe?

      I always tease the people I like the most :) so they are probably teasing you for the same reason :)

      I defiantly popped in again this afternoon, but he was in the other bar so no dialogue this time. 

      Meanwhile I have received no other complaints, and even if I had they are my legs aren't they? :biggrin:

  13. A days fishing under blue skies and factor 15 sunscreen. Total, mindful, bliss. 

  14. A cooling fan and Handel's water music playing - perfect end to a great day. 

  15. A gorgeous vintage biplane with RAF roundels flew over us today. Wonderful sight!

      I think this was part of armed forces day. There is a small still operational aerodrome nearby, that in the war was part of our air defence. 

  16. 30 degrees C here Saturday, but it's 40 plus in Europe. 

  17. A friend told me I have the gift to make people laugh. That made me smile. 

    1. lostinme

      lostinme

      Thats nice Roy, it goes to show what a nice person you are :)

  18. My new lawn has "taken" so I can start mowing it shorter, so less frequently. 

    1. taurean

      taurean

      And the good news is, it's only a third the extent of grass of the old lawn :smileys-gardening-147427: 

      So more time for us to sit outside, enjoying the garden 🍵 

  19. I have become an owl and no longer a lark since retiring. And I quite like it. 

  20.  Grey heron on the roof opposite. Lake nearby? No. Floods? Yes! 

  21. Plans for a fishing trip tomorrow on hold, due to the weather.

      It’s not been a bad day here Roy, hope it’s been decent for you and you have had a good day fishing with plenty of catches :)

      Hi lost, I deferred the fishing to, hopefully, Friday. Too windy. 

      Instead I went down for breakfast from my friends who run the village café. Then Julie and I did some gardening and had lunch. 

      Then did two more hours gardening, then went to see some friends in the pub. 

      And tonight I have been assembling a flat pack laundry box for Julie. 

      All in all good.
