Hey new thread since our old stopping smoking and not gaining-too--much weight has been lost from chat! BOO!!!

I am not a good role model however as I HAVE piled on a stone, well 12 lbs now, since giving up the cigs.
This must be rectified!
Hence joining in the club section!

Donnadoon hope you find this thread.

Everyone else pile in, join and be happy or miserable bastard ex smokers

So so pleased for you!

Just back and reception not the best when we were away!

Over the moon about your dd, great fantastic news!

Break was good, lots of kids activities and nibbles and wine!
I'm getting the Christmas goose!

Now let's get crossing our fingers for your new house!

Think it was nice to update other thread.
Honestly, I'm sitting here grinning for you.
You must be so relieved.

Later lovely x

Donnadoon Mon 24-Nov-14 12:41:00

I updated that thread out of courtesy to those who responded

How's you?
How was your break?

DH reckons we will get a second chance offer on that house, he can feel it in his bones apparently hmm

Praise The Lord ! Dds eye is Ok !
The swollen optic nerve seems to be in fact a wonky optic nerve, different from the other eye, something that she was probably born with and no problem hopefully
They are going to review it in 2 months and then discharge her but keep the photographs on file in case she has any eye trouble in adult hood
Jeez I'm so relieved!
Thanks for being here Fran flowers
Do you think I should update that chat thread I started or not?
The few posters that were kind enough to respond to me may not even see my update and it would be weird to pm them all confused
What d'ya reckon ?

Hope you've had a lovely few days

Donnadoon Sat 22-Nov-14 23:31:21

Ooh are you in your glad rags ?
Hope you having a lovely time

No no gazumping allowed here
Thankyou for thinking of us

FrantasticO Sat 22-Nov-14 21:39:00

Hiya still away but wanted to say hiya!
Good luck a million times over for your appointment tomorrow.

The house will work out.
Do they have gazumping down your neck of the woods clueless

Thinking of you, my internet bestie xxxx

Donnadoon Sat 22-Nov-14 15:16:17

We've been outbid on the house, not prepared to raise
It will be if it's meant to be...
Dd has her important appointment tomorrow morning, how good is that on a Sunday? I think it's good cus DH don't need to take time off, not so good for the staff that have to work them though wink
I will let you know how she gets on
Eyes still good
I'm eating like a horse though, even had a fleeting thought I might be pregnant again. I'm not though, I'm tired and got enough on my plate at the mo. And repeat
Getting really excited for Xmas, watching the lights go on tomorrow eve
Might put the decorations up next weekend
Hope yous all ok

FrantasticO Wed 19-Nov-14 21:08:28

Ooh sent you a pm!

FrantasticO Wed 19-Nov-14 21:01:22

Hey mrs!
You can see again! Whoop whoop!
Didn't want to stalk you too much, making you read with sore eyes!
High five to your sister for making you get seen, so glad to hear you are on the mend!

New house DOUBLE whoop whoop!
So exciting!
Honestly wouldn't go to huge bother with your house as new owners want to do their own thing!

Have bitter memories of our old house having new decking and lovely ensuite ripped out within the week!

Exciting times!

Donnadoon Wed 19-Nov-14 14:57:54

I went eye casualty yesterday, my sister forced me
I turned up at toddler group all red eyes and squinting and she said " enough is enough " so I was taken down there like a naughty child lol
Anyhoo some antibiotic/steriody drops later and Tad-dah! Better already after 24 hours, gotta use them for a month though and be reviewed in 2 weeks
So I'm very happy at the mo, bid on a new house yesterday, we've outgrown this one and always knew we would so it's the next step ( bites nails)

Gotta get this one ready to sell (looks round at jobs)

Tell me more about this trip with the inlaws flowers and wine and more wine grin

FrantasticO Mon 17-Nov-14 21:14:34

How are you all?
How's your poor eyes?

Hope you are all well

FrantasticO Sat 15-Nov-14 12:10:42

Poor wee soul.
You must be so bloody fed up, eyes are so sensitive.
You're probably run down with all the stress you have been under.
Is there any local barnardos groups near you?
They are great for running kids groups that mums go along to as well and eat cake might mean you get to sit for a couple of hours?

Yeeha that you goT your dds appointment!
Took ages, more stress for you.

Maybe just keep repeating that you need stronger meds when your eyes get reviewed. You kinda need to be able to use them.

All fine here!
More fancy dress for children in need!
Refereeing squabbling kids and going to work!

Going away with the inlaws next week...

Will update!

Get better, be nice to yourself, hugs x

Donnadoon Sat 15-Nov-14 08:31:23

My eyes are itchy , stuck together in the mornings, watering all the time
I spoke to the eye department and they said to give it one more week and they'll give me something stronger to put in them
I'll see how I am Monday though
It's been 4 weeks now
I got myself in such a state over dds eye test result and then after visiting ds1 and then leaving him again was such a wrench , I cried so much it felt like my eyes were hanging out and have not been the same since

Dds appointment came through Hallelujah !

Me me me again, Sorry Fran , how the devil are you ?

FrantasticO Fri 14-Nov-14 17:17:02

Mmmmm I posted on here on Wednesday but it isn't here.

Anyways hope that you Are feeling better ad that the eyes are on the mend.

Fingers crossed for your wee girls appointment.

Wish I was closer, I'd come watch the kids a while and let you get some rest.

Take it easy


Donnadoon Tue 11-Nov-14 12:16:01

My eyes are not on the mend yetsad I have a bacterial and viral infection in them apparently
They did some swabs and said it's basically got to run its course, blimey it's been over 3 weeks since first symptoms
Still not had dds appointment through, I'll give it til Friday then play merry hell grin
I didn't have a take away on Saturday but DH cooked

FrantasticO Sun 09-Nov-14 11:53:41

Hi lovely!

Hope that your eyes are on the mend.

You deserve it with the time you've had of it recently.

I followed your good example and sat up until midnight wrapping Xmas gifts I know how to party

Hope you are feeling a bit better
Good things are a coming.
It's def your turn for some good luck.

Donnadoon Fri 07-Nov-14 21:10:10

Alls good thanks Fran
My eyes are okish, I've got some stuff to put in three times a day
The car is just metal and yeah the wall is just bricks ... Not important

I've been me me me lately
How are you ?

Will you get another muttley? Probably far too soon and raw still to contemplate at the mo huh ?
I will always have one I think, he makes me feel safe because he barks at the door when it gets knocked.

My boy is home and back to coming in at midnight grin oh to be young !
Back to sleeping with one ear open, til I hear him revving his old banger up the driveway coming home safe

Having a nice easy weekend here
Might get a curry tomorrow and enjoy strictly come dancing
Might take dd1 ice skating on Sunday afternoon while the sodding Grand Prix is on

FrantasticO Thu 06-Nov-14 17:08:23

Poor poor you!

How did you get on with your eyes?
Blardy hell you're not getting an easy ride of it at the moment.

The wall can be fixed, I know it's shit, but it's bricks.
You're boogie bus, I'm weeping with you.
It's sooooo fecking annoying when you prang the car.

I'm sooo not the best driver, been lucky and drive for miles to find the "right" parking space

You did make me laugh the way you described it though!
You have a talent, you're funny.

Hope you are home, that your poor gunged up eyes can see, that you got your lovely dds appointment and that your not down on yourself too much about the car.

Have cake.

Hugs x

Donnadoon Wed 05-Nov-14 23:33:53

I'm not de ranged honest, the wall was old and needed to be re pointed etc anyway, well it's going now, flippin thing!
I'm normally a good driver honestly
Hope you are all ok
Oh and I'm with you on the fireworks, we went to a display because ya feel ya should for the kids blah blah
But they are over rated , noisy, dangerous, expensive , I won't go on

Donnadoon Wed 05-Nov-14 23:28:18

My eyes are itchy and sore and I'm struggling to see
I went docs today and he told me to go straight to eye casualty
Arghhhhh that place again !
I'm going in the morning
And while I'm there I'm going to chase up dds appointment
I scraped my wheel arch on our front wall this morning
I've done it to every. Single. Car. I've. Owned
But arghhhh! Not the boogie bus !
Pissed off . Can't see well enough to drive !
Got my sister over, got DH off tomorrow
But I got a big mallet Fran and knocked half the pissing wall down!
Raaaaaaah ! I feel better for that!
Thanks Fran wine and sorry for swearing blush

FrantasticO Wed 05-Nov-14 21:58:02

FrantasticO Tue 04-Nov-14 20:32:23

Aww poor wee you, you're having a crap time of it.
Hope your eyes clear up soon, you'll need them to keep up with the kids!

You're likely a bit run down with all the stress you have been under.
Be kind to yourself Mrs, you're doing a fab job.

Any news on an appointment yet?
Fingers crossed you hear on.

Get you wrapping presents...
Bet there are mounds of them to be wrapped for your brood!

Take care xx

Donnadoon Mon 03-Nov-14 13:44:24

I've got conjunctivitis and I can't see very well, my eyes are itchy and watery and stuck together in the mornings. Just got some ointment from the chemist though
Just wrapped a few Xmas presents too....go me !

Donnadoon Mon 03-Nov-14 13:42:39

Sorry mate but the weather has been glorious down here, we had a couple of showers yesterday but apart from that it's warm and sunny
We had a great weekend, I thrown a bit of a wobbler last night because the Grand Prix was on and I'm sick of it !

FrantasticO Sun 02-Nov-14 11:15:11


Hope your weekend has continued to be a good one.

Weather is proper miserable here, going to get the kids well wrapped up then off to gymnastics.
