Moving house is one of the most stressful events in our lives, Keith !

It would be a worry if you weren't a bit apprehensive 👍

Try and look on it as a bit of an adventure !

All the best with the move.

Cheers.

Get yourself an Instant Pot, mate. That, a single, counter top hot plate and a decent micro is all a man needs. Trust me on this 😎

But even though we were like couple  of our staffs going at each other, when we were both younger, he deff used enjoy my visits  to him in the week , when you feel bit sad or empty  keith  , always tell your self there plenty people like you , your not own your own mate   push it back  fight it  .

Mate. I genuinely feel for you. I’ve read all the posts since it happened and am saddened. When I lost my younger brother I was inconsolable for a very long time. Now getting onto the cooker request. WHY. Today’s slow cookers and microwaves are absolutely the dogs bollocks. A very very god friend, 78 years young, swears by the things. He will never need to use a cooker again, not only because of the microwave, but because I take him at least 3 meals a week and a dozen eggs. The other week I took him a lovely haunch of venison which he lightly explained that he had prepared it in the MV. I couldn’t believe it but he assures me it was beautiful. Long and short of my narrative is that clearly there are alternatives for you to explore. Hope the move goes according to plan. Jok.

    I know you mean well well mate, and i suppose it would suit some, but im not some, its only a matter of 18 months since i lost my best mate, so i will leave it at that, i feel like im deserting her leaving here  here, but at some point in life, you have to think about yourself,

Well; I have just eaten The Most fukking devastatingly Gorgeous lump of beef steak. Absolutely melt in the mouth material.

About two minutes, fifteen seconds per side. On a glass dish. In the microwave.

Think I'll have a home made curry, tomorrow. With all the home made trimmings. " Electric Oven " 🤣 FFS! But, you crack on.

Will you be able to keep a dog at your new place Keith?

  I was wondering who would be the first to ask me that, the answer is, no pets allowed , and that is a bitter pill for me to swallow, but swallow it i must, i could stop here and get myself a dog, or i can move home and be with company, and 4 miles away from my daughter
