    Chocolate

    The Mrs has bought enough chocolate to fill her suitcase, I mean it really.

    I said, "what about your clothes", she says she will leave them.

    My wife did the same when she went in October. Took a case with chocolate and goodies. And a case with hers and our daughter's clothes.

    Then when I followed a couple weeks later I had to bring the extra clothes she didn't have room for!

    We've just come back from the Ph, will be going out again for Christmas. Guess what, ANOTHER load of chocs is ready to go - more than a suitcase full. Guess they don't sell chocolate out there ... This time she's looking for a box to use as luggage so we don't have to bring another empty case back with us :-)

    I was in a Walmart in Toronto on Monday. Cadbury's Roses were around $15 CAD for the same size tub that are currently in Tesco for a fiver



    Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again. But life goes on.
    The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the passion that she shows to the outside world.

    Fine mate, got back yesterday from Canada. Did Ontario, Quebec and went over the border to New York for a couple of days. Life's good, my kid's doing very well in his studies. Glad your wife graduated as a doc. I spoke to a Filipina last week who graduated as a doc in the PI now she is doing extra studies and exams to qualify in Canada, loads and I mean LOADS (Capitals for extra emphasis) of Pinoys there working in healthcare.

    You're doing well and always travelling

    The misses works in A&E in the Pediatrics department now and likes the job a lot more than being a GP.

    In all the years the misses had been working here she has come across many Filipino nurses but only ever 1 Filipino doctor who was trained in the Phils as a Pediatrician, but the GMC would only register her as a Staff grade and not as a consultant

    So you're back in town huh? That went quickly. I suppose now's the time to decide which activity holiday to undertake in the warm sunshine.

    Wish I was on benefits.
