You know who you are. I have heaps to do by close of business today and keep getting distracted with sexy physio sessions, onions I mean unions, Mrs Thatcher (I blame her for it really), national gatherings and goodness knows what else.

LEAVE ME ALONE. I will get wrong when the boss man my husband gets back to the office !

As long as you only 'think' it gilly don't worry. smile

Movedalot Thu 11-Apr-13 16:44:19

Perhaps it has gone where Galen's plot went the other day.

I think you've been on the vino gilly, have you? I'm about to start. wine

moomin Thu 11-Apr-13 18:00:25

Happily on the wine as OH cooking this evening and trip to hairdressers wasn't too hair-raising wink

Cheers to you gillybob and movedalot

gillybob Thu 11-Apr-13 18:02:10

I totally haven't Movedalot I just feel in that strange kind of silly mood today. I think I woke up this morning thinking today I am not going to take anything very seriously and guess what?

It worked and I haven't.

Will be having a glass in about an hour though. Never drink before 7 that's my motto ( unless its a special occasion, a holiday, a weekend or I am feeling particularly silly) come to think of it .....


gillybob Thu 11-Apr-13 18:04:00

I hate the hairdressers moomin all that looking in the mirror it's enough to give me nightmares. My hairdresser thinks I am a looney ( she's right I am ) cos I can't bare to face front and she has to keep straightening my head to get the cut straight. grin

Galen Thu 11-Apr-13 18:17:15

Whatever you're drinking I NEED three or four of them. Bad day today with people specialising in not answering the simple question asked of them!
If you find the plot please tell me! I suspect our plots are meeting and trying to make a conspiracy!

gracesmum Thu 11-Apr-13 18:22:22

Gilly there's this amazing gadget which helps to reinforce your good intentions. Look at the side of your computer/laptop and you will see a sort of wire thingy coming out of it. Trace this to its other end where it will have a triangulart thingy stuck into a plate with 3 holes in it in the wall. Carefully move the switch so that it is up and remove the triangular thingy and will find that your computer/laptop screen is blank (if a laptop, it may take another 30-45 minutes) but once it is you will be able to resist the siren call which is Gransnet. QED.
Alternatively do you remember a kids' TV programme which used to be called "Why Don't You?" (switch off your TV and go and do something more interesting instead.) You could try that with your pooter? grin

moomin Thu 11-Apr-13 18:58:09

Sorry Galen lost the plot years ago and it's never been seen since - I'm going with the conspiracy theory too

Yep gillybob I hate looking at my fizzog in the mirror and try to avert my gaze onto the other unfortunates sitting in front of their mirrors (who are probably looking at my mirror . . . . if you get me . . . )

gillybob Thu 11-Apr-13 19:00:19

I totally "get you" moomin I am exactly the same. I also tend to examine my fingers at great length too. [crazy as a box of frogs emoticon]

moomin Thu 11-Apr-13 19:04:21

No gillybob can't look at fingers for too long, knobbly and arthritic looking with old-lady skin (now doesn't that conjure up a nice image!)

gillybob Thu 11-Apr-13 19:05:35

Mine are flea bitten with the worst nails in the world moomin but it doesn't stop me from looking at them. smile

Hope you are all feeling better from yesterday's silliness and are all doing something useful with your time instead of reading this rubbish wink
