Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Hello again! I'm back at work, though I'm still not feeling well. But my colleague has handed in her notice and is on sick leave for the rest of her remaining time. :( I'll tell you more as soon as I fell well enough to come back and post! I feel like I'm on the verge to a pneumonia and I try my bes...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

My flu is back. This one ist like an unwanted visitor who refuses to leave and makes himself comfortable - and when you think you finally got rid of it, it sneaks in again through the backdoor and hits you from behind. With a baseball bat.

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Honey and lemon did the work, although it takes its time. Still coughing, but the sneezing is much better, and the fever is definitely gone. Timmy got so used to my being at home (and going back to bed after feeding him at 6 a.m. :lol: ) that he's NOT going to like it when I get back to going to wor...

Re: Doctor Who

Me, too. We're Info Capaldi's re-runs now. I do hope they continue beyond that.

Re: Biological Finding I Just Learned...

Uh oh, some people will not like this :D :D On a more serious angle: British historian Mary W. Beard repeatedly got slammed because of her conclusion(based on facts like DNA analysis and the extend of the Roman Empire) that there might have been black people among Roman Britons. There's actually a l...

I'm so glad to hear this! The UTI should be over in a few days. Timmy gives her a high-5-paw!

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

So nice to see you around, Allegra! :hug: I'm sorry to hear about George - we had to have our Leah euthanized in late 2015, it was her time, too. She had been ill for a while and when she stopped eating, we knew it was time to let her go. In February 2016, Timmy moved in, we got him from my brother-...

Re: Doctor Who

Matt Smith regenerated into Peter Capaldi last week. I wasn't able to follow closely throughout the last weeks, but every time I watched, somehow Matt's hyper-acting disturbed me a little. I liked "The Day of the Doctor" however. Reminded me of why I miss Tennant.

Re: What are you currently reading?

I'm currently reading "I know a Secret" by Tess Gerritsen Before that, I read "Murder for Christmas" by Francis Duncan, an author I didn't know so far. The book was a christmas present, and I liked it. It's very Agatha-Christie-Style (the author and Mrs Christie are contemporary)...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

My colleagues are on sick leave one after another. :D I just hope I'll be spared the flu this year.

Not much to do currently, so I'm a little bored at work. :D

I treated myself with Sherlock, Season 4, and a new book, but I have yet to watch Sherlock.

Re: Pets...

I remember Jessie and Lea getting like that. Timmy's about 8 years now (we don't know his exact age, but the vet agreed with our estimation), and he's still full of energy, and playful. Right now, he doesn't like to go out that much, due to the weather, so he lets off steam indoors :lol: We've taken...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

I think we're on about the same latitude, Paddy. We've had some very blustery days here, with horizontal precipitation, ice sandwiches (a layer of snow, a layer of ice, a layer of snow), and wind chills below 0. The high today is -5 C by 5 PM, which is warmer than we've been for quite a while. That...

Re: The Ivy Bush - General Chat

Who would have thought real life might outshine House of Cards? Bad weather over here. America may face its coldest winter of all times (according to a certain President-impostor), but we're facing hurricanes over here right now. Bad blizzard yesterday, bad hurricane today (literally). The train and...
