Had a phone call from a friend/old flatmate today to tell me one of our other friend/flatmate's mum died last night.

Fucks sake, it's just constant bad news at the moment. I am totally devastated for her and her family as it was unexpected too (not that it makes expected deaths any easier), I just feel sick.

I've not seen her or her family in a few years now, but they used to always be round at the flat when I was at Uni and I'd even stayed at their house a couple of times.

How is your gran doing?

Genuine query - how can a poached egg have fewer calories than a boiled one. Work colleague was adamant about this when going on about their diet, and Google seems to agree - difference of 12 calories on 100g of poached vs boiled.

She's having her ups and downs. She was recently moved from the 'normal' ward she was on into an isolation room because she developed an infection. And she's recently had to have blood transfusions. The poor woman has been through hell of a lot. Went up to see her this evening and I'm so proud of her, she's being so strong and doing well considering everything.

We had a laugh this evening because last time I'd been in to see her, I'd asked her about her wound and how many staples she had in and I'd told her she better not have beaten me with the size of her scar or I'd be unhappy. Apparently she asked the nurse who removed her staples yesterday how many she had and when the nurse told her she had 30, my Nana replied, 'Damn, she's beat me.' The nurse was understandably confused and my Nan explained.

It's nice to see my Nan's still got her sense of humour right now.

Thanks for asking.

Ha ha! My Nan had a similar sense of humour, even though she had a truly horrible and slow passing with Altzheimers... I remember an awful afternoon when she asked where her younger brother Eric hadn't been around recently... he died in 1972. After much upset, she wiped her tears away, took a deep breath and gave me such a sad, sweet little smile and said...

'Well, I was wondering where the little bastard was...'

My Nan has been gone for quite a few years now and I've got so many lovely memories of her, but I think this is my favourite...

Is this Biker Boyz film on BBC1 actually a real thing or am I having a particularly fucked up hallucination?
I'm loving it either way.

I'm glad your gran still has her sense of humour Sway, that's such an important thing. As my grandad spends more and more of his time not sure where he is or who my gran is, honestly the strangest thing is not seeing his quirky sense of humour so often. Your gran's obviously a strong lady

Today I'm freaking out a little bit. I finally got a job yesterday which is amazing, but it's in a year 3 class and I always imagined myself in year 1 or 2 for my first year of teaching. I'm shitting it a bit already because I have taught year 3 before, but back then it was early in my training and I was only a 'satisfactory' teacher. I think I'm having a bit of a freak out in case everything I've learned since then doesn't translate into that year group I know it's needless worrying and I'll be absolutely fine when it comes to it - it's just made a hell of a lot worse by the knowledge that I'll almost definitely have Ofsted within my first term. Eeek!

On the plus side, I get to choose the theme for my classroom Currently torn between a general 'film' theme, pirates, dinosaurs or Doctor Who

The key point is you got the job - everything else is just preparation.

Good to hear your gran's progress Sway - they do say that humour is the most important thing spirit-wise to get through these things. Hence the breathtaking levels of gallows humour you often get from cancer sufferers. Get stuck in a room full of them and you won't believe what you're hearing

Thanks all - again! I feel as though it's a neverending stream of bad news surrounding me at the moment. Is this just unfortunate that everything's happened at the same time, or is this just what happens once you hit a certain age - more chances of people around you (and their parents) developing health problems and/or passing on? Within the past 4 years I've known 5 of my friend's parents die from cancer/tumours/leukaemia and the most recent one being unexpected.

Ah yeah my Nan is a great woman, I really take my hat off to her, this has been such an ordeal for her and she's still joking and smiling. I was showing her my scar last night and I was saying I was proud of it, as it's a battle scar and I joked that we'd have to go on holiday once she's better to get us both in bikinis by the pool. She was laughing heartily at the thought.

A sense of humour certainly helps. We all have a laugh at my situation, with comments such as 'stop selling your internal organs on ebay' and 'if I squeeze you will you burst down the middle?' quite commonly directed at me. Although I made the rookie mistake after my first op when I received a load of presents of saying, "They can take my remaining ovary if it means I get more gifts...."

Valanya, congrats on your job! Especially since there was a lot of mucking you about in the lead up to it, so well done!

I think it's an age thing. In the last six years, I've had seven uncles and aunts die.

Same. When my nan died last year I felt a chill at her funeral when I noticed just how big the rest of the pew looked.

I had to run a Google search to see what you're talking about.

I mean, not only were those comments stunningly ill-judged they were also badly timed. I hope she loses Wimbledon this year, the utter twat.

I always hope she loses Wimbledon, because she's always been a twat.

Probably won't happen, though.

She'll win this year and it'll be all rather predictable and boring. But she is a fucking twit with an ego the size of a planet. And, rather shockingly for a woman, a massive misogynist.

Hmmm, to bin hoke or not to bin hoke that is the question? Next door is being gutted and there are two overflowing skips outside. I'd noticed that they appear to have hoyed at least two perfectly fine looking dining room chairs, that I could so easily re-upholster. So do I tramp it up big style or not?

I remember my ex brought a skip chair home one day, painted it up and it looked bitchin', so I'm tempted.

I finally caved and got a smartphone and I fucking hate it. It's so far taken me an hour to get to the basics. I'm going back to a normal phone, I don't care how shit it is.
