Long time no see!!!!

Yay, I am back!!!!!! Been wanting to get back for a while but kept putting it off - why I don't know....but possibly cos I spent too much time on facebook, LOL!!!

So much to say but not sure where to start!!! It seems like forever since I was last here so forgive me if I repeat anything that was said the last time I dropped in.......blame it on my age, LOL!!!

As I type I am sitting patiently waiting for the plumber to arrive!! We have not had heating for over a week now......well the central heating that is.......since the boiler decided to stop functioning fully!!! We have got hot water thankfully and a gas fire in the living room but that has been it - you don't realise how much you rely on the central heating to keep you warm until it malfunctions!!!! It has not helped that we have had a considerable amount of snow fall in the last 2 days so it is more than a bit cold!!!!
This time next Saturday I will be having surgery on my knee, albeit keyhole surgery but I am hoping it will be a success to improve the problem with my knee until I can have the major stuff done in a few years time!!! I am nervous but then I always am when it comes to surgery so I just can't wait until it is all over........hopefully home again on the same day!!!
I am about to leave the job I have been doing for the past 2+ years with the local Community Mental Health team; I am sad to be leaving but have no choice.......the funding has run out for the post and the job will cease to exist once I leave so I can't even apply for the job that has been mine for 27 months.
I think when I last wrote our Sascha was just a wee puppy of a few months, well she is now a bouncy 2yr old with so much energy!!!! She has the intelligence of her German Shepherd daddy and the energy and willfullness of her Border Collie mum - an intriquing combination and we definitely cannot outwit her, LOL!!! She is definitely a daddies dog though...does not give me the time of day at all when Rob is around!!!
Anyway, time to fly as it is Saturday and shopping day!!! I am so pleased to have got back into the blog......still not like J-land but nothing ever will be!!! Will catch you later!!! loads of love to all my friends (if you are still reading!!!).

Course we're still reading! Baited breath jobby now you're back as can't wait to read what you've been up to all this time. Pic of Sascha?

Sorry to hear your job's finished. Still, it'll free up plenty of blogging time. Do you know, I can honestly say I don't miss AOL in the slightest. I like it here. It was a bit like moving to a new town - you've left good friends behind but you're sure to make loads of new ones.

I have completely given up on Facebook but, as I got this new laptop last back end with a built-in webcam I have been doing a lot of Skype-ing.

Looking forward to your next instalment
love, Angie, xx

I'm so glad you're back and writing. What's wrong with your knee? I've been having serious problems with mine for a year. Trying to avoid knee replacement since I'm only 42. Enjoy your day.
