What b**stards - that's just SO rude. I think it might be time to take another look at the definition of 'friends' - that's a really shabby thing to do.

I believe ducks should be fed not eaten.

I did make it sound worse than it was...I suggested it and said that if it was the weekend of the 16th October then I couldn't make it and she got it mixed up, or at least that's what she claims! I was quite upset at the time, not only because I wanted to see the show but also because we were supposed to spend the night together and I ended up spending most of it alone (which isn't so bad, I like my own company).

I like duck but I gave up eating meat recently.

I think you're being too nice to them - what they did was shabby and thoughtless and you have every reason to feel let down.
I'd have asked the waiters to spit in their soup Very Happy

Good grief Rolling Eyes

It was a bit shabby ... but sometimes friends do let us down.

If it happens more than rarely I would start to question what the friendship is all about.

My duck was nice, though a wee bit underdone. Our cat wasn't all that keen on the leftovers either...

RD1 I received my renewal notice and have just saved £250 on my home insurance...by logging on to my current insurers website and taking out an identical policy. Two years to the very day after I wrote to their Head Office "Complaints dept" as I had managed to save £250 on my home insurance by logging on to their website....(I didn't check last year as I was otherwise preoccupied at renewal date...) I guess I will be penning another letter in the morning. GRR

RD2 I am working from home tomorrow morning Smile Happy Days.

RD3 I had feedback from my viewers at the weekend that they didnt like my house mainly as it didn't have a garage. Now, my house is 109 years old. It does not have a garage, it never has had a garage, it was built shortly after the car was invented, and to the best of my knowledge the particulars do not state we have a garage when we do not. And I waited in all pigging Saturday for them. GRRRR

You've just reminded me that I need to phone my insurance people because they're charging me for two sets of insurance when they were supposed to change me over to student insurance...not give me additional insurance.

You've also reminded me that I planned on writing a letter to the National Trust who are insisting that it takes three months to change my address on their system. I complained by email and was told that they can't win either way, it's either too little time or too much. How exactly can it be too little?

RD1. Having a pretty rubbish week as am not pregnant - again.

RD2. I have a hole in my shoe - going to buy some new shoes at lunchtime, so at least my foot won't get wet next time it rains.

RD3. Delivering a self-harm awareness workshop to a load of Christian Youthworkers this afternoon, and am not particularly prepared!

RD1 - I start my new job on Monday!
RD2 - I'm (weather permitting) doing a dry run on the bike to get there tomorrow (it's only three miles away)

RD3 - (warning - shameless plug approaching) I (now some time ago) got a third friend to join Dooyoo (sadly, only got miles for one of them - the referral link doesn't always seem to work) some time ago, and so am shamelessly plugging: http://members.dooyoo.co.uk/member/blueboxoffroad/

Thank you very much Smile
