  1. She's lovely. We had German Shepherds at home for years & had to use choke chains with them (and even then they'd sometimes, still try and rip your arm off).
  2. Jeez, Ruge - sorry to hear that. Hope the little mite is recovering well & the family aren't too freaked.
  3. Apparently that chandelier cost a fortune...
  4. My mum didn't let us kids watch The Young Ones... she used to switch it off. Every. Single. Time.
  5. Is it too early to be drinking bourbon?
  6. That fecking Wowcher ad on TV. Sweet God, will ye stop? I try & hit the mute button, but obvs I'm not quick enough. Please cease & desist
  7. Why? I used to watch F Troop when I was a kid...
  8. We had our own mobile home for years (70s-80s) in Portrane (North Co. Dublin). Just a field, not too many amenities, but right beside the beach. We used to spend all the summer holidays there (3 months) & most of the bank holidays & we loved it And yes, @bickster I do remember a lot of bingo...
  9. I saw them in Atlantic City two years ago & it was a cracking gig (even if the beer was overpriced). Also, I love Def Leppard
  10. I wandered in just to have a look... eh, nope.
  11. I had a much stronger reaction to my first Pfizer jab. Absolutely on the floor for 3 days. 2nd jab? Nothing except mild pain at site.
  12. Where to start? I read your msg at a ridiculously early time this morning (insomnia) & it's been bothering me ever since. I wanted to say something but didn't want to come across as an arse... You're being unnecessarily hard on yourself. You've had an awful lot to deal with in a short space of time. You can see how recent events have affected your other half, have given her leeway & understand her reactions but you don't do the same for yourself? It's fine being stoic but at the moment it's not helpful. You need to talk to her about your stuff. It may shift a lot of weight off your shoulders. Covid has pushed a lot of us into a tailspin, even those who didn't have underlying problems. I've had depression 1/2 my life. My counsellor (by phone) has been a Godsend. I just need to vent mostly, I don't need someone to fix anything, I just need someone to listen. Also, I have used the Samaritans before - they're wonderful at listening, non-judgementally and confidentially and are patient. You said you lost your best friend to suicide. I am so sorry. This in itself is a lot to deal with. Talking therapy might help you? Search online for help from suicide/bereavement charities? And on that note, please don't. It sometimes just takes a little thing to dissuade you. The only time I thought seriously of chucking myself off a bridge (in Dublin) I realised I was wearing a brand new AV bench coat & didn't want to get it wrecked in the mud... I hope some/any of this has helped. Feel free to give me a shout through DM. Take care.
  13. I've got cold feet (even in the summer!)
  14. Of course! Diff socks for running, sleeping, work & casual (depends on the footwear)
  15. My last day of junior school, I gave my teacher 4-stroke for his bike 🏍
  16. You have two options: (1) give it to the nearest kid or (2) drop it onto the outfield
  17. Exactly. Was shocked when I heard it. Obviously I'm a bit naive.
  18. I (finally) watched Ian Wright's docu. on domestic violence (I'd been putting it off). Jesus. Way too familiar a conversation.
