    Hi all

    Thought I'd start my own thread, as some of you have done, to stop all those personal things sneaking in to other threads LOL (as if we care! :D).

    But many of you have been kind enough to put up with all my job and life grumbles, so will update you here.

    Not sure when I get the kitties - prob in next few weeks. I will certainly take pics. Ideas for boy and girl names very welcome.

    Job update - was called this morning to say I didn't get it, they picked someone with NHS experience, and I wasn't surprised. BUT it turns out it was good news anyway, because a friend who knows them says they are awful to work with, huge turnover of staff, so perhaps a lucky escape - and avoid an hour's commute.

    In the meantime I have been contacted about four other roles. So, I'm absolutely fine with it. More time to spend here yaye!:D

    Lovely crisp blue day here - I might even get out for a walk to Greenwich :eek:

    Hope everyone's well and happy!

    Susie xx

    Hi Susie,

    I used to love walking around Greenwich, some lovely pubs there, I particularly like the Admiral Hardy and the Cutty Sark myself. Greenwich Market was fun as well back then.

    It's lovely, isn't it? Only a mile from home (maybe I'll say I live in Lower Greenwich lol) and it's always lovely to be by the Thames on a day like today :)

    I was stationed in Woolwich, which isn't that nice, the good news was I was accommodated in the Nurse's Mess at the QE Military Hospital. That was fun. ;)

    LOL, I bet!

    Woolwich has had lots of regeneration, has it been a while since you visited, Jimbo? It won't change all the really grotty bits - but it has a fab shopping area, I go there a lot, and the entire waterfront area has been turned into "luxury" flats, with the rivercat ferry going there too.

    No I have never been back Susie, I was there in the late '80's. I do know the QE Hospital is gone, can't think why, it would have made a perfectly good civvie hospital. Royal Herbert Barracks across from the RA Academy I'm told has been converted into luxury apartments. That's about all I know.

    Sounds good about the changes though, you wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere near the river then. LOl.

    No spare room :( but there's always the couch, which is actually very comfy, as long and as wide as a single bed. You're all welcome any time :)

    LOL I know what you mean Flutter, there's a hospital and a police station just down the road, so there are always sirens going off - and the helicopters were out again late last night chasing some naughty person :eek:

    Flutter - us country bumpkins will have to hold hands in that big Birmingham place - I will probably get lost or run over otherwise!

    Susie - helloooooo in your spanking new thread - I used to have 2 cats called John and Harry, the names really suited them :D
