I remember when parents would deliberately infect their kids with chicken pox just to get it out of the way. :?

Thanks. Getting there.

Decided to re-arrange my bookcase and discard a few books - not the fiction - it's needing more room for fiction that started this. Do I really need 7 books on massage and aromatherapy? The problem is which to get rid of. I have books open all over the table... :evil: can't make my mind up.

Parting with stuff can be tricky. If you can't decide, maybe put them aside for awhile and come back to it.

I have. :lol: Which rather mucks up the idea of having a good tidy up. :roll:

I too had trouble deciding, but it had to go. So I got rid of all of it :shock: Actually have about a dozen paperbacks and half that in hardback (not counting books for work).

I feel a lot lighter though :)

I know what you mean! It's just shifting piles.

Sometimes that's the best choice. There's nothing I've ever regretted getting rid of.

The second illness was the result of being involved with a play group for preschoolers which was run by my (teacher training) college and several children had chicken pox. One or two of us students had the same symptoms. Examined by college matron and confirmed by a GP. The third time was when I was teaching and again there was an outbreak of chicken pox at school and i got it. Sorry to argue but I know what I had!


I believe you. My mother had it so bad that we were all born with "natural immunity" passed on from her - she used to try to get us to catch it (visiting sick kids, etc) but we were resistant. However, after about 20 years or so, my older sister caught a mild case from her daughter.

Maybe. Sure somewhere in these books it tells which oils are good for clearing the brain and making decisions. :lol:

Sheesh,
My PC crashed while launching a game on Monday. It look me until about an hour ago, to fix it. What a frustrating mess! I finally had to put the Win7 disc in and restore everything from the external back-up drive. I'm glad I bought it a few months back.

One of the little squares came off my keyboard ages ago, been pressing the space where it should be with the result that I now have no number_ (the one between 2 and 4). My own fault. :evil:
