Default TTFN

I have mentioned on a couple of other posts I am going to be away from Messy Board for a few weeks.

Keep your chin up everyone and don't forget the E-Petition while I am not here to fly the banner for it. I expect to open it up each day with hundreds more signatures. Well, a girl can dream ca't she

Just in case anyone has not seen one of my MANY posts re' the petition it goes like this:

Open THIS LINK

Read it

Sign it

Open up your e-mail and don't forget to check the junk/spam if you haven't got a reply soon after signing

Click on the verification link they have mailed to you

Tell all your friends and family to sign

Copy and paste the link in any HD forum or any forum you may be on for that matter (UK signatures only I'm afraid)

Paste the link of Twitter if you have an account and ask others to sign/RT

Paste the Link and ask you friend on FB to sign/share

I'm resurrecting this old Thread where I am going to be off the Board again for a little while at least.

I start full-time work again on Monday. It's a temping contract through a job agency but meant to be for 3 months at least.

I appreciate I am coming across as soft. Many of you guys are working 48/7/365 - when a full time carer for Steve I am sure I was forced to work a 48 hour day and not 24 and I still can't get my head around how I managed. I think the writers of Dr Who might need to work on the day of a carer and time travel. Actually... a disabled Dr Who in a Wheelchair and trying to get the Council to adapt his Tardis to make the door wide enough + a wet room built in could be quite a challenge beyond the Dr Have we ever seen a Dalek inside the Tardis? Can't remember seeing one and that's probably why. They can't get through the blee din door!

Thing is... I've gone soft and feel shattered just thinking about getting up and doing a full day. I know the local part-time job was hard enough. it's going to be a culture shock for the system just to be doing the peak hours travelling on the underground etc 5 days a week with hoards of people. At 4 foot 6 I was always the one trying to keep upright where I couldn't reach the grab rails so maybe that's what gave me an affinity with Steve once his balance was getting compromised bless him

Once I get my head around how much 'spare' time I have I hope to be more active again. I will still be pushing for e-petition signatures on Twitter and am not turning my back totally on the HD Community but it's going to be a case of time management.
