Re: Don't Walk and Talk/Listen

Don't you know you can't get run over if you cross the road whilst talking on your mobile? - it's magic - you don't even need to bother to look if there's anything coming. I'm sure that must be...

Re: Car insurance...

I am 60, I have never had an accident that I caused (run into the back of once), and have a totally clean licence. Bought an old car for £450 - best quote I could get for insurance was over...

Re: Should I ?

Go for it - you're hardly geriatric! - if you're nervous, learn to drive an automatic, less to think about and less to deal with, although it does mean you can't drive a manual car. You couldn't...

Re: films that scared you

Psycho does it for me every time - perhaps because it is believable - it could happen.

Re: Life’s Little Annoyances!

I can't stand people who stand at bus stops for 10 minutes waiting for a bus, and then when the bus arrives and they get on, spend another 10 minutes rooting around for their Travelcard. Why can't...

Re: The lure of shopping

The only thing I can't resist is a bookshop. Put me anywhere near a bookshop and reason deserts me, as does all my available cash. I keep meaning to join the library in Camden, but never get round...

Re: mothers sent home 4 hours after giving birth

Catie was born at home, which was great - she arrived at 7 a.m. having kept us awake almost all night - so after everything had quietened down, I wandered downstairs and cooked myself a huge...

Re: Asda Car Park

Having a long car, it has cut down considerably on the spaces I can fit into, and I now have to use about half a gallon of petrol to reach a decent sized space. The layout is total crap. Perhaps...

Re: NHS - Is it really that bad?

We have always run the NHS on student nurse labour. You only need a couple of fully qualified nurses on the average ward, the rest can be students at 1st, 2nd or 3rd year. When trained, the...

Re: Should a drug addict be given a regular fix by the NHS?

Why should we concentrate on maintaining addictions? Surely it would be far more cost effective to insist that addicts undergo treatment - but of course that involves them stopping taking drugs. ...

Re: weirdness

There is a reason for it. Once you have come across something, it becomes a trigger factor for a time. Whereas previously you would not have paid attention to a mention of whatever it is, with the...

Re: Have You Started Yet ?

Bought the first Christmas pressie in the January sale. Organised, eh? - except that that is still the only one I'd bought up until the end of October! I always have good intentions of shopping...

Re: Electric blanket Season.

Electric blanket AND central heating. I hate being cold, but I do feel the cold more than most. And yes, I remember waking up in winter with frost on the inside of the window - never had a fire...

Re: Lovely And Northern

I thought everybody knew that it's always been Gobbinland above the library. I have heard an alternative explanation for the name, though, that it comes from "gobbin" as a way of talking or accent. ...

Re: old haunts

The Commercial used to be very smart - it was also residential. I've got a photograph aged about 10 bedizened in a very fluffy bridesmaid's dress, on the doorstep of the Commercial, and went to...

Re: Anyone for Tea ?

We always have tea in cups with saucers, have a few everyday ones, and a few posh ones. I do sometimes have coffee in a mug, particularly at the office, but mostly drink tea (no milk, no sugar, so...

Re: Weddings /'Over the brush'

Whether you have your own pension or not depends on whether you have opted into the system. If you're a married woman who hasn't worked since marriage, or opted for the "married woman's stamp", then...

Re: Pranks, dares & mischeiviousness

Re: Taxed.

It's true that the only things certain in life are death and taxes. The more you earn, the more you pay. Sadly, as Lettie says, there are and always will be those who will not pay because they...

Actually, it wasn't the Night Sister in the cupboard with Dr H, it was ME! - and of course, she had to find us.
