    I hadn't encountered that (the song version) until now. Just wow.

    Bugger! I've broken the wheel off the vacuum cleaner, I got 30 meters of flat Ethernet cable to move the CCTV recorder as the Kamp Kommandant didn't like where it was :dunno: The next room had a much better Wi-Fi reception for the four cameras. I had to drill a hole through to the other room behind the skirting boards and the damn thing broke off as I was cleaning up:frown: ........I think I'll be in the doghouse lol:wow::D

    Rule #1 never take photos / recordings of your crimes.


    Just set it back in the closet where it was, prop the wheel up and act like nothing happened. round
    Or, better yet, give the wheel to the cat. Cats and vacuums are natural enemies; she'll figure that the cat won this round when she see the wheel being batted around.

    So, last few days in the UK and we fly out Monday evening.

    Cornwall and the Cotswolds were amazing, very, very beautiful!

    The next few days we explore London and that is an exciting prospect indeed. (If Gael wakes up today, that is)

    We have a marathon ahead coming home and from Heathrow to our place could be as much as 38 hours. 21 of that are flying. We have a long layover at Singapore of 5 hours but fortunarely we still have enough Singapore dollars to get a feed. Changi is immense and has 60 food outlets I believe.

    The adventure is almost over but I say to akk Brits here, what a beautiful country you have and thanks for your hospitalty.

    (Too many bloody tourists and too much traffic though)

    I’ve done lots of flying but never so long as this (in one go)
    and I may well be certifiable at the end of it myself.

    I hope we
    get an upgrade for the Heathrow- Singapore leg as at least we wont be jammed in.

    Speaking of such things, nroidge over the Thames and surroundings was looney tunes this arvo. 10’s of thousand s there and when it came to crossing over the bridge facing a solid wall of Asian faces, I folded!

    It’s called “ Hyper Vigilance”part of PTSD. and I was at risk of lashing out with so many around me and ending up in a cell or a looney bin. Gael immediately got me on a bus when I told her. Dont come to London/ England at this time of year folks...it’s bullsh!t.

    There are just too many tourists everywhere....bloody tourists!

    I’m looking for a bottle of Scotch.

    The cats don't get blamed for such things in our house.
    I'm sorry that happened. Good for Gael for helping you outta there. I realize it's a bit late in the game, but have you thought about seeking some help for this? I know you love fairly remotely, but it might help to deal with these demons once and for all. I'm hopeful it'd give you some well deserved peace.

    :cheers:

    Mate I’ve been having treatment for 30 years and its too deeply seated to just go away. I’ve been in a state of nervous tension for close to 50 years now and just try to avoid situations like this.

    Gael is well used to it as over the years we’ve had to walk out of theatres, concerts and I cant even sit with my back to people in a restaurant, anywhere really. My flight or fight response is switched permanantly on!

    Gael really is my carer....officially and all, as I couldnt operate on my own.

    So for those of you that think the Vietnam war is over, I’ve got news for you!

    No worries Rob. You put up with me, so you're certainly a friend in my book.

    Think you’re pronpbably right Ian as we’ve run into 3 lots this morning, plus some Americans.... all nice!

    No shortage of others either and a visit to Jarrods felt more like Beirut to me. I was emboldened letting Gael in there as I knew our credit cards have been cancelled...,. grin~
