Stress is the inabilty to cope,BAH!

I have been trying to get onto A O L for ages,kept getting.... Script is blocking blah blah....After trying everything,I rang A O L ,who told me it was one of theirs ...to authorise it and it would let me back on .And two hours plus later here Iam .I should have stayed in bed today .My trip into Huntingdon ,was uneventful ,there had been a fog warning for our area,but it wasnt so bad certainly not enough to hold us up at all.Arrived in Huntingdon ,and this was were the day started to go down hill,I waited threequarters of an an hour for my connection,the driver explained hed been given two extra school runs,says he-"must get the kiddies to school",  mmm I arrived late and Ive got the Health and safety officer coming!!!SUGAR**Keep cool...... I managed to get the residents called up, and he arrived,with Sally a student in training.I explained Id retired and was doing holiday cover ,thinking he might be gentle with me ,Oh no! hed got a student to impress,hadnt he ?He took me through the lot,I think I disapointed him , by answering his questions correctly,Sally kept flashing me sympathetic looks.On his summing up he suggested some algi ,was power washed away from out side on a little bit of the patio area, and that the engine room ,key (engine room for lift ) should be labeled,the master key didnt open the door so I had to look for the correct one.

I had another lie down with my book , when I got home still got the afore mentioned cold,wrapped Maurices pressies for his birthday tomorrow and that brings me bang up to date ,Iam going to watch 49 up on ITV tonight .In1964 agroup of seven year olds were interviewed,then and every seven years since,they are now forty nine,and,sobering thought Ive seen them all!!    I havent answered any of your entries folks, but I will.......... tomorrow as the saying goes is another day .Enjoy whats left of the evening                Jan xx

P S  Jeannette has just pointed out... 49 up... is on tomorrow!!Its a good job shes looking out for me ,I told you it had been a bad day!!

Aol has been really playing up lately.  Glad you managed to get through all that with the Health and Safety man.  Hope you feel better soon.  Did not know 49up was on tonight, thought it was tomorrow, ooops better get the video sorted out. Wish hubby Happy Birthday from Mike and myself tomorrow.

Glad you finally managed to get connected, frustrating isn't it?!! Oh, I do love Health and Safety Officers!! I've had a few run ins with them! Took one round our hospital once, he asked how often we polished the theatre floor, I replied that if he knew his job he'd know that non-slip flooring doesn't get polished, it gets macine scrubbed!! Didn't gain much popularity there!! Wish Maurice a happy birthday from me. Jeannette.

I know how it is trying to get on AOL. I couldnt get on and kept getting a error. Well I got DSL and right from the start AOl came on clearly. Then I couldnt get on Yahoo. I was at my niece's home and playing on her PC then tried Yahoo and got on. When I got home I tried mine and got online with no problem.

I'll be watching 49 up tonight too :o)
Well done you for answering all the questions that the health and safety officer threw your way.  Of course, he HAD to come up with a couple of things that would need fixing, a couple of HUGE things, lol ;o)  Meanie officer man!
