True - every time I try to write with a throbbing jaw I tend to hit five or six keys at the same time. I suppose my chin could do with being pointier scratch

I hope you feel better soon, Delph afro

Quiet day here, I see. No posts since Del's at about 8am this morning. Must be holiday season, or summat scratch
Been too busy charging up and down the motorways to Scotland and back for my dad's moving house two weeks ago and then his funeral on Monday. Plus the writing muse has left me though family and friends said I created and delivered a fitting eulogy. I know throwing myself back into the last chapters of my fantasy will help - dad enjoyed me telling him about it. Then day before yesterday I cycled the 45 miles to manchester to help daughter with baby Oliver. I was the only bloke at the Rhyme and Time session in Davyhulme library with 15 women and 18 tots! My dad used to do that too so it was fitting. Plus I can see my dad in baby Oliver - nosing at any new scenery.

Thanks to the Whittaker judging though. A great distraction and all the entries are so well written and imaginative. A pleasure to read - shame to have to allocate marks.

I'll be back.

Nice to see you dropping in, Geoff. It must have been quite a week for you - hectic as well as harrowing. Very tiring. A good time to spend with family and friends, though. I think it helps when you're grieving, if there's anything that really can help with it.

Happy Father's Day to all the dads dance

I'm marking the day by sitting here and trying to write something, for once, while the kids are at scout camp and my wife's hopelessly lost on the way to pick them up, two hours late, ringing me in a panic every five minutes asking what to do with the satnav to make it tell her where the place is, and I'm also in charge of cooking the dinner. Meh... if there's no peace for the wicked I guess I must be downright ferkin evil scratch

Hope you enjoy your Father's Day, anyway, Ed!

Over here, the way I learned the phrase is, "There's no rest for the wicked and the righteous don't need any." So maybe you're in the latter camp...

Umm, no, but thanks for the thought afro

Just finished making some elderflower champagne (the first step, anyway). Went out and picked the flowers last night, but didn't have any white wine vinegar, so had to wait until today. It's busily steeping as we speak. Can't wait to try it. I love elderflower wine, too, but it's a bit more involved.

Funny, I was reading up on recipes for the stuff, and I read that Elderflowers contain a substance that fights off flu. Apparently it's the same chemical that's in Tamiflu. It bonds to the part of the flu virus that invades cells and spreads the infection, and in doing so negates it and stops it doing what it's meant to. So the next time you have the flu, or even if you think you might be at risk, I suggest you get yourself well and truly shitfaced on elderflower champagne, wine, or elderberry wine, and if anybody asks why you're led, sprawled, face down in a pool of your own juices, just tell them it's purely medicinal and Doctor Ed said it was fine afro

Typically, I've now come down with a cold. Managed to avoid getting one all through the coldest winter we've had for years and get one in the warm weather. WTF's that about? rolleyes

 scratch Somebody do me a favour, please - I'm the only person who has posted since I upgraded the forum, and I'm now wondering whether everybody is just going through a lurking phase, or whether there was a glitch after all and I'm the only person who's able to post. Somebody say something, or send me an email to tell me they can't on blunted at cafedoom dot com. Thanks.

I sweated buckets today, damn it's hot. Got caught in the rain, that was cool, and heard that 125 people phoned up for a plastering job. It's good to hear that the economy's on the mend. pissed
