EC: I'm sorry to hear that, it's awful.

I've had a sinus headache today, and I need my nose cause I can't breathe through my mouth when I sleep any more.

There is something deeply wrong about colds and feeling congested in the summer, isn't there?
Feel better, SM!

Rain stopped and It was a glorious afternoon! Played 4 under my handicap of 18 at Truro golf club and enjoyed a pint with my friends. Not really a 'worst thing today' as it turns out then! St. Swithins day my ...........!


Whoops! Spoke too soon. St. Swithin's revenge today. Started raining around 08.00am and hasn't looked like stopping all day. There can't be many more cats and dogs up there, can there??

Carine and EC: how awful. Such things happen all too often unfortunately. I hope that the 21 year old who survived is recovering well, and that the killers of the other chap have been apprehended.
I don't often post on this thread, as I try to be upbeat about everything. (I don't always succeed of course :rolleyes :) Also, the posts on it are often about something really awful, or sad, and make my problems seem utterly trivial. However today has been particularly trying, so I thought - 'That's what it's for!'
Then I read Carine's and EC's posts from yesterday and thought once more: 'What on earth have I got to complain about?' So I'm not going to post a bad thing - even though it's now pouring rain, and I'm in my office without a coat to get back to the house. This is a non-post on 'The Worst Thing Today'.

Ask a foolish question... :D :D
But you live in Cornwall, where the air smells like fresh air instead of diesel, garbage and various other disgusting things.
Sorry, but in my dreams I live year round somewhere like Polruan (and move to the moors in summer to avoid the crowds).
Wanna swap? We've got heat & some sun today.

Come home Chatterbox!

You're right of course. Apart from our place in the south of France, Cornwall must be one of the best places to live on this earth. I cannot now imagine living in some megacity like NY or london. For the last few years of my working life, I worked in East Croydon, hating it and commuting from my flat there to Truro on the weekends, prepared to put up with the M25 for hours just to get home!

It's true there are crowds at Fowey, Newquay and St. Ives at the moment, but I know (and I'm sure you do too) many places that the 'emmets' don't know and I walk there every day, trying to imagine what my protagonists were doing on this date in their day!

Musn't grumble eh??

...and not many of the 'emmets' get on the ferry to Polruan from Fowey; and very few of them stay there. If I can get there in September, I will be a very, very happy camper. I don't drive, so I can't really stay in places like Golant or Pont, where it is really quiet.

I have always loved mega-cities, but now...

And my worst thing? My home has been invaded by flies. Really. And it's 80 degrees in here with the A/C on. I can't believe I'm saying this -- but would it rain, please, just to clear the air? *whine whine whine*

Chatterbox: we had a colony of flies congregating in our living room for awhile, we finally put up strips and got a fly swatter in the shape of a tennis racket that you can shock them with.
