Did I Walk Under A Ladder


Recommended Posts

We lost our dog for two nights back in February, she ran away from the dog minder we used to send her to to get her more socialised with people, kept getting reports of sightings but she’s so nervous she kept running away

We got her back after we had a call from someone who witnessed her being hit by a car

I went out fearing the worst, luckily after wandering around she came running to me seemingly unhurt!

Trip to the vet for X-rays blood tests etc we got her back minus 4 teeth but otherwise unhurt, vets bill £850, but I’d have paid 10 fold plus that to have her back

in May my car was broken into on my drive, the thieves helping themselves to the steering wheel media centre and half the dashboard 

So a 5 year old Merc I’d had nearly from new was written off

Whilst on the boards the dog hurst her leg so a trip to emergency vet and another £220

On Saturday morning a girl from my office was tested positive for Covid by Saturday afternoon I was feeling rough by Sunday I had it all!

So trip to testing station, get the test, results in this morning and I’m positive but feeling better than yesterday, hopefully the jabs worked

just got to deal with the boredom I’m not one to sit around and do nothing 

I thought 2020, was bad, this year is a nightmare 

Hopefully my tale can make you feel better about your year, apologies if yours has been worse

As the saying goes without bad luck I’d have no luck at all!  😉

When we are allowed to fly abroad again I’ll post my flights on here so you can cancel should be on the same plane!  🤣

Well, they say trouble comes in threes. You are clearly over the normal limit! Seriously though, hope the rest of 2021 is better for you.

Throughout my life in corporate management I’ve had many a b*locking for being both over and under budget!

Being outside the ‘norm’ is no stranger to a bit of a maverick like me!  🤣

It’s probably fair on the rest of the boating community that you and me shouldn’t be on the same piece of water at the same time!  😉

Thanks for your kind wishes, but your issues recently totally trump me!

I wish you too better luck in the future

My wipers fell off if that makes you feel better!

Ok so fixed later that day in time for a good trip to wells next day....

But found all the pubs and chippies were shut for that stupid game thingy:default_dry:

Calm run back to yarmouth next day as weather closing in followed by a week on the broads with friends topped off with a lovely run to southwold for 3 nights.

ok so you've had it worse.....

Just to add to the run of bad luck....

Got into southwold Sunday and tried to get beer in harbour inn, not taking more walkins....

Wandered up to red lion and swmbo overheard all the other pubs were shutting at 6.00 to rearrange tables, booked a table there and then for evening and had lovely meal and got well watered while watching hungry people get turned away.

Just going soooo wrong...

Hope I'm not on a run of bad luck...I got a bit carried away with a new mandolin this evening. Oh flip! Took ages to stem the flow!

On the upside, Graham did the barbecuing that I was planning to do.

Try a mesh glove.  They’re available on Amazon, which reminds me - I need to get one to wear when I used a mandoline, especially as I’m on blood thinning medication to combat atrial fibrillation.

Ooh, that’s a lot worse!

Ummm…I think we need to be careful, otherwise people will start to think there’s something afoot with NBN membership.

Only kidding. My shredded fingers are just due to my own stupidity. Nothing sinister. :default_eusa_naughty:

for goodness sake, can we ask that members take care of themselves and try not to get injured, at this rate  we will get a bad name.:default_biggrin:

says the person who owns 4 black cats that are constantly trying to get underfoot.

(Something to do with a finger pontoon, missed footing and a boat left in gear (pulling back out of the berth)...

Ouch! I’m sure that will come up as a nasty bruise.

I’ve just been in touch with someone to ask if they can stand in for me and play the organ in church Sunday morning. I don’t think my fingers will be up to it somehow. :default_dunce:

Sensible move Pauline. It was far too hot anyway. You’d have probably be the first forum member to go down with heatstroke. I only went down to the allotment (at the top of our street) to get some lettuce and almost passed out with the heat. 

Loved the photo of Phill on the ‘old members’ thread.

I secateured the tip of my index finger cutting back ivy last week. Cleaned and plastered it, then decided to use weedkiller spray. Ended up with a blood and weedkiller soaked plaster. Gave up before I really did some damage!
