Hello all … August has arrived … and with it a new place to chat with friends about the bits and bobs of life … sharing the triumphs and tribulations along with our ice creams … so bagsy one of the comfy seats, the kettle’s on … get chatting …

    We slept like logs … today we’re heading to S Lincs to spend a couple of days with OHs mum … so I’d better finish this coffee, get myself up and dressed, and organise the packing …

    Good morning @Dovefromabove, good morning all and good evening @Pat E
    Still no rain here... Always forecast never appears!! Working on Felixstowe this morning so coastal breeze at least.
    Builders in for the rest of the week so it's going to be hectic!
    Safe journey @Dovefromabove
    Have a good day folks

    Right, my half of the suitcase is packed, my knitting bag is by the front door, OH has watered the plants and given the hedgehogs enough for two nights (although they'll probably eat it all in one) and filled the birdbaths ... and I've paid the balance owing on our holiday in September ... now for a coffee ...

    Hi all

    Beautiful day here, sadly I am feeling a bit sorry for myself, myalgia and arthralgia are really bad at the moment. Oh well, the price of an interesting life I suppose.

    Morning @WonkyWomble, morning @Pat E, safe trip @Dovefromabove.

    Here we are in August already!  July seemed to whizz by, much faster than June even though it had an extra day!

    Had a very lazy weekend, recharging the batteries. Off to meet some friends this morning to talk about how we can get more people to the wonderful lunchtime concerts they organise once a week.  The summer programme has finished, the autumn one will start next month, so it's that we need to get going.

    Poor you @punkdoc ... hope it eases soon.  Do you find hot weather makes myalgia worse?

    Poor punkdoc. Hope you have some decent medication to resort to.
    We are having coffee in Sidmouth, having braved an early visit before the Folk Week crowds arrive for the day. Being serenaded by a small group on the sea front, three saxophones and a clarinet, playing beautifully. Will have a stroll round town to see the activities, then hopefully head back home before OH catches sight of any Morris Dancers, which he hates for some reason!

    Sorry @punkdoc - didn't see your post before posting mine.  I looked up both of those things and it sounds like what my husband complains of - some days are better than others.  He claims it dates from when Fish fell on him, after he was in Marillion for a while, after leaving Camel (neither band would have appealed to you!).  If we walk into town together we have to allow an extra 10 mins or so to allow for him to stop - either for his back or to catch his breath - he also has COPD.  He too led an interesting life.  Until I came along and put a stop to it all!

    Thanks all.
    Controlled to a degree by steroids, but I try not to take them too often, or in too high a dose.
    @didyw, I did have a spell of liking Camel, before I moved away from prog.
