Don't like them wouldn't wear them

Obviously true to form they plough on regardless of how it affects others.
Total disregard of people who already face daily challenges in their lives! >:(

No damp in our home at all hifimad.
Even after being on radiators it didn't feel like paper.
No idea what type of paper banks use - recycled toilet paper maybe ?

Don't laugh I'm serious with this.

Have any of you come across paper that once wet won't dry?
The reason I'm asking is a few days ago some bank statements got wet across the top.
I spread them out on the carpet in a spare bedroom and left them for two or three days.
When I went to gather them up - they were still wet!

Soooo I put them over two radiators and eventually they dried.

I left them on my dressing table with intentions of filing them the following day - only to find -------- they were wet again?????

How strange!  :-?

I often wonder to myself is it my fault? or maybe I'm scared?

Now I'm retired should I remain in ignorance of technology or should I embrace it, I've more time on my hands now to learn.
We have owned a new freeview recorder now for at least 6 months, and I haven't used a third of what it's capable of, and what we have learned we have only just mastered {the remote is a nightmare}.
My wife bought a {cheap} touch screen phone about 2 years ago it's spent at least 20 months of that in the back of the drawer as she couldn't "understand" how it worked.

I'm a 'move with the times' person to a great extent.
I remember a good few years ago when we were expected to use a computer for work  :-?
Couldn't plug it in let alone switch it on, some left rather than get to grips with it.
I attended training courses and slowly got the hang of them.
I'll never be a whizz if anything goes  technically wrong I'm stumped but don't do badly for an old lass.

Or then again, if I keep my life fairly simple is there a need to "chase" technology.

Suppose North East Derbyshire will follow eventually.
Bins need shifting regularly we'll have a flipping rat infestation if they leave them any longer.
We already have to be really careful about washing anything out which has had raw meet in - the flies get in and those horrible grubs are heaving in numbers inside - and out of the bin.
We also sprinkle the dustbin powder in the bags to stop this!

I've had the occasional time when getting to the department needed has been challenging.
ENT can be one such department.
Whilst on the Royal hospital subject we went on Monday for an out patient and the Costa Coffee was closed?
Is it permanent ?

The phone now has to 'pick a window' I'm cheesed off with it.

Went into phone shop and asked yesterday but no joy there. Thing is hubbies phone is fine !!
In town yesterday we had a lunch in a cafe with 'free' WiFi - Hubby phone connected mine didn't??? It needed a password??

If you see a post around facebook saying woman flings mobile phone out of window and knocks someone out - that may be me  ;D

I enjoyed my dolls I had a twin pram for one Christmas Gift and had a Black doll and a White doll in it.
 Also reading books - Enid Blyton stories was a favourite, also Huffy Puffy story books, Pollyanna and Jo's Boys.
Used to melt old records down on the fire oven and make fruit bowls   :-?
