I am typing a vacuous question in the chat room of NB.
What are you doing at the moment?

Well at least someone's vacuuming in here, it's filthy.
Can you do the vacuuming a bit later Plucky? I'm trying to answer a vacuous question in the chat room and it's interfering with my concentration.
I'm trying to think of a vacuous response to the vacuous question, but I'm feeling pretty empty-headed at the moment.
Could you put fresh towels in the en-suites too please Plucky?
Oh ok. I will put the vacuuming off until tomorrow. It's got to be done sometime, though. I put out fresh towels, Jeni. I'm going to feed the cats and go to bed, I think. Plucky. xxx
Got the towels, thanks Plucky.
Just so that you know for tomorrow, I think one of the cats left something in the potted fern in the conservatory. Nice.
Okay, I've tucked Plucky in and he's fast asleep, bless him. But I handcuffed him to the bed anyway.
Did you put the spare pillows at the side of the bed Mal?
Remember what happened to his shoulder the last time?
So, there's another all-nighter kicking off at the Biscuit and Bog-brush in the old place if you fancy it?
Never known me to turn down an invite to share a stoned date. Oh, hang on, I feel a one-liner coming on...
Right. I've done downstairs and cleared up the cat's mess in the fern. I've finished the stairs and I've unloaded the dishwasher and put another load on. I ain't doing any more for now, though.
Mowed the lawn, watered the stuff in the greenhouse, watered the raised beds. Off to a guitar music concert at Kingston tonight, a memorial to my late brother in law.
Did some work on an anthology I'm supposed to be editing and printing. Tidied up the potting area of the garden as it was more of a dump. Moved an unoccupied bird box to a better location and put a new bat box up. Planted-out a fan palm (almost certain to die next winter, but ...). Now about to walk daughter's friend to meet up with her parents at local cafe. All in gorgeous spring sunshine.
Have spent the afternoon with friends in St Andrews while Mr B was running in the new engine on his race Kart at Crail Kart track.
Eating lots of home-made chocolate brownies, and trying not to think about the fact that the YM is on an adventure weekend in Dalguise (near Dunkeld) with his school, and that I won't see or hear from him until Monday afternoon.
But I'm fine, honest.
I bet the Young Master will love it, Jeni, but I understand your worrying. We were scared silly of Master Munky going on his first cubs camp but he came back having enjoyed every minute of it.
At the moment, I am typing into NB. I didn't do all the things, listed above, this morning. They were a response to you and Mr Gor's postings last night. Unfortunately, I can't do much housework at the mo, 'cos of my shoulder (!). I just sent Master Munky and his wife an anniversary bunch of flowers by Interflora and spoke to Miss Munky in South Africa. Best wishes, Plucky xxx
We were just concerned that you would hurt that other shoulder of yours Plucky.
How is the injury anyway?
The YM will be having the time of his life, and I really am ok. I know how much fun it'll be and I'm actually quite excited for him, knowing how he likes to build things to use.
They will be raft building, making shelters, climbing trees, trying archery, zip-lining etc.etc. So lots of mud, puddles and fresh air.
I'm just dreading the washing on Monday!
Glad to hear that the junior Munkys are all well.
Yes, he will love it!
It was good to have Mr Gor tuck me in last night and for you to suggest the pillow. Both helped a lot. The shoulder is improving. It ain't a linear process but it gets better every few days and I can (sort of) drive - although a bit one-handedly. The physio assures me this is fine as long as I can still do an emergency stop.
I have a trip to Thailand coming up in July, so a) I hope the political situation cools down and b) I hope my arm is ok by then.
Glad to hear there is improvement with the shoulder. I had a broken foot which was encased in plaster to the knee and was allowed to drive as long as I used my M-i-L's automatic. It was brilliant to see the look on peoples faces when I extricated my foot in it's bright pink plaster from the car and then grabbed my crutches out the boot.
I am sure that by July things will have improved, both politically and shoulderly.
