I have had a bit of a crap day. I need sympathy immediately.

But don't touch me. I don't do hugz.

Even [gin] <<flavoured with a smidgen of elderflower>> isn't cheering me up.

And I hate work and I'm never going back.

Sympathies Cervix, try Guinness if gin isn't doing it for you. Talc - I had a very similar experience once but with a mouse smile And, only yesterday, whilst using the loo, I realised that planting a plant that attracts bees right outside your downstairs loo window is not a necessarily a good or sensible thing. But I don't wish to talk about that particular experience just now blush.

Off to bed now. I'm done with today.

40? 40 is nothing. Spring chicken and all that.

I passed 40, amongst others, some time ago and I have bits falling off now. 40 would be just lovely, thank you. I never abducted wasps when I was a mere 40 you know.

I may have wine, I left it downstairs, I have a 16yo DD who may have had seconds.

She got a taste for Zinnfendel at 3 (naughty childless colleagues of DHs at a BBQ) she has not improved.

Bits falling off are you just decaying TAT

Ah yes Mrsjayy - and the process is accelerating. I have dry rot in the basement and deathwatch beetle.

Oh dear sad


ouryve Wed 13-Aug-14 23:01:45

And 40 is fine.

44 is proving a bit of a challenge, though. Dry rot and broken windows [squints at screen]

In another week, I will be FORTY SEVEN.


But if you share my birthday, we were born on the same day as Dorothy Parker.

This year I will be 49


And I have a headache from squinting at spreadshits all day. And not managing to conquer them.

40 is nothing.

I will be 46 this year.

Ds1 is 18 and in bed, all nonchalant-like, while I am still up and gnawing at my fingernails because tomorrow is RESULTS DAY. I want to go to bed and sleep, but I am an insomniac, so it's a bit pointless.

And anyway, it can't be right, having a son that old. I mean, I only left school a couple of years ago...

Stratter5 Thu 14-Aug-14 00:07:22

Ugh, results day is next week for us. DD is becoming more and more twitchy and grumpy as it nears sad

hoboken Thu 14-Aug-14 00:13:59

Cervix, 40 qualifies as a baby! I didn't have a bad day 'cos I lurked in bed for most of it.

Oldieandgoldie Thu 14-Aug-14 00:36:17

Huh! You think you've got problems.....
not only do I like that elderflower gin stuff blush, but next month I shall be 40 50 60 shock!!!!
(How on earth did that happen?)

(the age, not the gin wink)
