Me? I'm great, thanks. Currently trying to avoid being hit by motorcycles in Sai Gon (they ride on the pavements here and there's no test to pass) but otherwise all is good.

I hope things keep improving for you too, Skitz - it sounds as if there is finally some light at the end of your tunnel!

Translates as: took the time to reach out to people, made myself vulnerable and admitted I needed support. Achieved the first step in getting better.

I finished my first solo patio job! God I was so stressed and nervous. I mean what if it went wrong? That's a solid structure on someone elses property and its over a grand of their money. Huge relief that It turned out good.

^I didn't know it was a toy or came under a different name.

I've become a big fan of logic puzzles and Slitherlink was one that took me a little while to get my head around.

Ah I'm thinking of Dots and Boxes. I guess the Dots and Boxes toy I had was called Fences.

Slitherlink has been known as (Fences, Takegaki, Loop the Loop, Loopy, Ouroboros, Suriza and Dotty Dilemma), according to Wiki.

Following a rather bad start to the day, I went on a day trip to Dover. Explored a nature reserve, walked along a river and the seafront, went to a Roman Museum, and went to a pub on my own where the walls were covered in messages from cross-channel swimmers.
The best part was, I had quite a few random conversations with people which was really lovely.
The best part was sitting on the seafront - a little boy with his family came up to me - "would you like an ice cream, we have a spare one and we don't want it. You don't have to pay" He then said "I hope you enjoy it". He must have been only 5 Really brightened my day.

^^Kids can be brilliant in that way.

Sometimes I think adults need to learn to be more like kids again.

I agree with you there. And I often wish I could restart life and be a child again.

RE OP

2 walks, 1 bike ride and a workout (3rd point takes the willpower the other's are easy). Good escape from loneliness (temporarily), helping my posture. Managed to do 3 workout sessions this week despite the tiredness and buckling to drinking.

I volunteered, yes volunteered, to get up and go out infront of an audience and participate in a bird show. . I think I may have had sunstroke....

Still I got this beauty (Indian Eagle Owl) called Banda on my hand and she flew back and forth to me from someone else's hand for a good 5/10 mins.


Not a great photo but this is her earlier sunbathing:

Bloody hell.. for a moment, I thought that was a picture of a snake eating an owl!

Nice one, Mo! That sounds scary!

yeah it's not a great pic.

Thanks biscuits . It strangely wasn't, I somehow blocked off the fact there was an audience and didn't look at them at all. As for the owl I wasn't scared at all, I was dead keen!
It was quite a privilege


So the cure for my SA apparently is - must carry an eagle owl at all times

^ Well done Mo. Perhaps OWL therapy is better than CBT!
I would like to take an eagle owl around Tesco with me.
