Shakespeare made up the name “Jessica” for his play Merchant of Venice.
Shakespeare probably based it on the biblical name ISCAH, which would have been spelled Jescha in his time.

I thought e-cigs might be banned too Elaine otherwise I might have bought one. The old thing I have nobody would even know I was using. It predates e-cigs by quite a few years. It's literally a plastic tube with a cartridge in it. I used it last time I went. It doesn't produce any vapour and has no batteries so I think I'll get away with it. I'm going to hide it well now though just in case. lol

Good to see you Joy Smile and hope you got a nice stroll on the beach in.

Hi Everyone,
Just woke up and found that my husband went to work. He did not tell me he was going until just a few hours ago. Just love him!

Anyway, I am heading back to bed to relax for a bit the kids are still asleep and thought I would take some time and catch up on my reading.

I'm just posting on a few boards before I go and get some chores done. My granddaughter is visiting today and will be staying overnight so I'm trying to get ahead. It's raining steadily. The ground needed it but I hope it brightens up a bit later.

Turned out my GD didn't stay overnight. She got a call from work asking if she could do an early flight so drove home last night to leave there at 5.30 this morning. Rather her than me. She'll be back in a couple of weeks for that overnight stay she reckons. lol At least we had time to have a takeaway and catch up on news.

I need to get stuck into some housework this week after skiving it during last week's heatwave. The cat has been shedding non-stop so my vac will have to work hard.

So the heatwave has finished then Wendy? Hopefully you guys still get more summery weather.

I've had a full on day and my body is aching so I guess I should get to bed and rest those sore bones lol.

Yes definitely gone Martha although it's not cold. Yesterday we had a fair bit of sun but it's very wet this morning.

More housework to do and then I need to write some birthday cards before I go up to my brother's. He's supposed to be getting his new mobility scooter today. I don't think he'll fancy going out in this to test it though.

@zucker7not the text on this board is a base of 13px so is the normal size.  If it's too small for you to see properly then you need to hold down your ctrl key and then keep clicking the plus key until the text is a good size for your eyes.

Sod's law Wendy that the day one picks up something new like that, that it's gonna rain.

It peed down all day here today.  But at least it's not cold.

For me the time is really dragging now waiting to move.  Every day feels like a bloody week.  The telephone and the wifi is being switched on at the flat in two days, so that will be another job sorted.

I can imagine Sandy! Fingers crossed they let you move in sooner then arranged!

My bum is hurting from sitting so long but I needed to keep going in emptying my old test board out on Yuku. Only thing left on there are test RD skins .... hahahaha they can keep those!

Next will be my personal board and then I need to sift through any posts on the skin boards.

I've given up bothering with it all Martha.

The posts I want to keep hopefully will be transfered over with the board anyway so I can transfer those I want to keep at my leasure afterwards.  To tell the truth I'm now sick and tired totally with Yuku and Tapatalk.  They have no morals, and no decency whatsoever.  And I'm sure somewhere down the line for those that stay with them it's all going to happen again, and again.  I'm just hoping that Tapatalk falls flat on it's face before it manages to buy up systems like Zetaboard, Proboards and Forumotion.

Rain all day again today according to the forecast. It's certainly started out that way.

I'm the opposite Sandy. Time seems to be flying too fast. Less than ten weeks until my trip and so much to sort out before I go. My brother who is the other main carer for mum is only going to be away at the same time as me. I could throttle him! Lots to sort out there to make sure cover is in place.

I think the cat has figured out something is going on too. Probably saw me get a suitcase out and chuck in the stuff I bought a couple of weeks ago. I've got nowhere to put any of it unless I get my finger out and clear some wardrobe and drawer space. When I have the time I haven't got the energy and vice versa. I'll probably end up putting it off and having to do it when I get back home. I am getting incredibly lazy.

I agree. I have moved over here and thinking of moving my personal/family to Proboards. I tried creating a second one here but it would not let me with the same email. I also think I created two others here and thinking I may need to go find them.

Beckea when you want to create a new board or username you have to use a new/other email address. Ones you've done that you can then go into the admin area and change the email address.

Sandy I hear you!! Yes when things don't work out with TT it will all be happening again.

I'm not doing much more on my boards either, other then deleting private chats as it seems that all forums at the moment as readable by anyone when they first get moved over. I saw a complaint about that on support but can't find the post now to show you ... sigh.

My old cat Sally used to know I was going away too when I got the suitcase out Wendy.  I think we well under estimate the intelligence of animals as human beings.  I am absolutely certain they are capable of logical thought.

Thats the one draw back of this system Becks.  I even had to create a completely new email address to create a second board.

I'm checking a couple of times a day to see if they have brought mine over so I can quickly go in and change the settings Martha.

Our Jess has gone off to Blackpool for a few days to meet her new boyfriend's Mother who he hasn't seen for 7 months.  Pity the weather isn't very nice for them.  I think it's about a 6 hour drive from here.

I'm going to have a little tidy up, stick a bit of washing in and then watch a couple more lectures on line.  I've caught up on all my recorded programmes now ready for when the Sky tv is switched off tomorrow.  I'm going to miss Sky for the next 4 weeks until I move and it's re-installed in my flat.

You'll be able to enjoy a good catch up session once it's up and running again.

Yes the weather is awful again up here today. I'd guess Blackpool is getting the same heavy showers we have here. Sounds like it's getting serious with Jess. Meeting the mother is usually interesting. My MIL and I couldn't stand each other when we met and that set the scene for the next 30 years. I thought she was a southern snob and she called me a northern heathen. That was day one. lol

Nothing interesting happening. I've washed the bedding but definitely won't be hanging it out. The wheely is out and I've done the few bits of ironing I do. The cat will "help" me put the fresh bedding on as usual. She loves that game. I try and shake the quilt in the cover while she pounces and pins it.

Good Morning All,
Just got up. Not feeling at all good so just going to head to my desk to do homework in my jammies and listen to some slow music for a bit or something.

Just need to get a few things done and then I can do other things.

Morning all. Not actually raining yet but it's damp and dreary. I think it's just biding its time until I go grocery shopping. Builders out the back are pouring concrete. I think they must be optimists.

Most of my regular programmes have finished for the season so I shouldn't miss too many.  A couple of them are on terrestrial but I wont have the ability to stop and start them so I'm going to have to make sure I remember when they are and watch as they are being broadcasted.

Dull and dreary here too.  I have a few bits to do today indoors but not a lot.

Jess is still in Blackpool, Aimee has gone off for the day to the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and Sarah is at work all day, so I have the whole place to myself today.

We're in for a cold and wet weekend and storm warnings and road weather alerts are in place. They expect heavy rain, hail and even thunderstorms in this mix and possible snow in the south!

One of Catherine's close friends is getting married today and the poor girl had to change her wedding venue as she had one for outdoors. Catherine is one of her bridesmaids and they spend all day yesterday setting up the new, indoors venue.

Hahaha Wendy I had a similar intro with my first mother in law! She was one nasty piece of a person brrrr. My 2nd mother in law was an absolute delight to be around and she became my Australian mum Smile

Heating is on and I need breakfast and another coffee and I shall have that while reading my book I think. Then a quick shower and organising a few things food wise, but that will be it for today as I'm going to hibernate with this weather!
Oh and making sure all gadgets/kindle are charged just in case I loose power.

Awwwww. Nice that you got a better one second time around Martha.

Wow! How did they manage to switch venues so quickly? I hope everything goes well for her after all that hassle. Sounds like it's time for you to batten down the hatches. I hope your power stays on.

Good timing on the programmes then Sandy. Set an alarm on your phone for when the remaining ones are broadcast. I'll have to work out soon which I'll need to catch up on after my holiday. Luckily a few are finishing in the next couple of weeks so I'm hoping I won't miss many. Enjoy having the place to yourself.

Dull and dreary again but not actually raining right now. I'm on a go slow this morning but nothing urgent to be getting on with so I might continue in that mode.

I ditto what Wendy says about the venue.  How on earth did they manage that so quickly.

I never knew my Mother in Law as she had passed when my Bill was only 17, but I am certain she was a lovely woman and I would have got on famously with her.  Loathed the Father in Law though.

I'm now down to all the fiddly bits where sorting my junk out is concerned.  I have been shoving all the yes/no/maybe bits to keep in a box to sort at the end.  I am now at the end.
