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

Poor you at a & e, good the bead is now gone.
Why do kids shove things up their nose!

All quiet here, I'm off today as schools are off.
Bit of shopping.
Bit of refereeing of kids!

Waiting on results of vote now.
I'm sure it's going to be a no vote...

Have family who are passionate yes voters, discussions were getting a bit feverish!
It's all been talk though, not the way the daily mail have presented it! grin

Yes and no campaigners chatting today at polls.
No violence, couple of idiots who would cause a fight in an empty house exception

Great to see so many people engage in politics, but time for a wee bit calm now!

Great for going with the water!
I will join you in the lose a stone campaign in a fortnight
I'm off to Spain soon with friends, so won't be on the water!


Donnadoon Wed 17-Sep-14 23:30:14

Gawd I feel for ya!
It's all kickin off, been watching the news, I can imagine it must be vair stressful at the moment up there

Drinking water going well, feeling less stocky already this week smile

Been to A&e this eve with my 2 year old, she stuck a bead up her nose !
Huge kudos to the lovely wee ear nose and throat nurse who hooked it out within seconds whilst I held her tight
Me and DH had tried and failed for hours to do what she did in a jiffy ! Clever woman I nearly hugged her blush

The scarecrow festival was fab !
Not just any old scarecrows I tell thee
Peppa pig ones, despicable me minions, Star Wars, teddy bears, every character you can imagine, people go to so much trouble !
Must go every year from now on, the kids and us loved it !

FrantasticO Tue 16-Sep-14 21:23:52

Ey oop chuck!

Hope scarecrow festival was fun!

A bit frenzied here with the referendum, passions are running high and it's all a bit wearing.

Constant political chat at work, at clubs, at gym, if you go to the shops...and every bugger KNOWS they are right!


Roll on Friday so some kind of normality can return!
Fingers crossed it all calms down its so divisive.

Anyhoos give those lovely kids of yours a cuddle and catch up later xx

Donnadoon Sat 13-Sep-14 21:25:00

How dee partner !
Ooh it's a bit scary actually isn't it ?
It's all over the news about the referendum , like you say...too many un answered questions, and I read today that they have no kids...those driving the idea, that to me , does make me wonder about their motives etc.. Because I dunno... Us with kids already fear for their future Huh ?

I've been trying to drink more water this week, it kind of flushes me out
I've not done any DVDs this week but I have been busy I've done my dog walking, but not power walking because dd 2 has decided she doesn't want to go in the pushchair anymore, so it's been a snails pace walk instead
Poor dog has to wait until we are at the field to run for his ball
How's your dog now ?

I've decided I'd like to lose a stone before Christmas
It's all about the food for me, when I over eat it soon shows
So three square budgie eating meals for me from now on
Let's see how long I last
It's definately getting harder as I get older to keep slim ish

We are off to a scarecrow festival tomorrow
Hope you are having a nice weekend

FrantasticO Tue 09-Sep-14 07:45:47

I'm firmly in the no camp, want to stay in uk.

Gone a bit scots way hay up here at the moment and polls indicate it will be close.

Too many unanswered questions, I fear for my kids future, the economy and the divisions that this referendum is highlighting.

Roll on the 19 th when it's all over and we can get back to normal / or a new normal.

Seriously can't stop eating, Van Damme you say ?

FrantasticO Mon 08-Sep-14 18:37:18

Oh and re muscly legs, I'm sure it's there job to have muscles from Brussels, us mere mortals will hopefully just get a bit firmer rather than the full on van damme effect! grin

FrantasticO Mon 08-Sep-14 18:33:51

Stupid question maybe ... But will I end up muscly like the women on there ?
Their legs are really muscly , do you think so ?

FrantasticO Sun 31-Aug-14 18:52:05

Anyhoo, I get down days too, buuuuutt I've just bought myself some new boots, leggings and a nice tunic top from new look, so treat yourself Fran !
Thanks for the birthday wine and flowers

FrantasticO Thu 28-Aug-14 20:59:48

Shhh about being another year older...I am 40!
How the hell did that happen? grin

I'm as crabbit as a bear these days, so need a huge kick up the arse as even I'm fed up looking at my miserable face!

I have THAT bloody stone to lose again
It must really like me as it keeps coming back!

Shred is good, on twenty ish minutes and gets a sweat up, so calories burned! Fiver on amazon just now I think.

FrantasticO Wed 20-Aug-14 21:20:41

You're up early as always no wonder you need early nights.
Kids are getting back in the swing of it, they need sleep for school, swimming, dancing, gymnastics just goes on doesnt it!
I've finally shifted the bloody virus, felt awful.
Back to exercise and so need to I'm looking rather rotund!

Girls holiday for a landmark birthday. god I'm getting ancient and I don't care! grin

Will be good fun!
Never left kids before so feels a bit funny.

Celeb BB is good so far, what a bunch they are.

Anyways take care.

Donnadoon Wed 20-Aug-14 05:05:54

Omg I'm with you on BB
I'd like to know who votes for these 'winners'
Are you watching CBB?
I can't always stay awake past 10 pm, what with these early starts
Dumdumdum ! Away with the girls, Go you ! Is it a hen doo ? And yeah I read somewhere that women dress to impress other women and deep down we don't give two hoots what the fellas think, lol
I love the way your kids are revolting at early bedtimes too lol I'm not looking forward to the battle commencing in two weeks time here
Gonna try and catch some more Zzzzzs
Ta ra for now x

FrantasticO Sat 16-Aug-14 13:51:58

Hey buddy!

Lurgy is lifting here, so glad to be getting back to normal.
Did you watch the end of BB?
I wanted Christopher to win, just to annoy Mark!

Hope your not DIYing, it makes me feel lazy grin

Schools back here.
Kids have settled back in, but are revolting at early bedtimes. Tough!

Still working away and half laughing, half moaning at the thought of it!

Must hit the gym, I'm going away with my friends for a few days and there will be skin exposure. Dumdum dum!
Why am I more worried about being in a swimming costume among friends than I was with other half and kids and half of Spain grin


Hope all is well your end and that ou are getting plenty of runs from your driving son!

Laters x

Donnadoon Fri 15-Aug-14 18:36:20

The washing pile is back to normal which is always two loads a day
Sorry you still have lurgy flowers and cake sod the gym !
Not DIY ing just yet, hoovered the green machine out today it was full of sand and melted ice cream, yuk ! Been meaning to do it since the weekend blush I'm slacking !
Kids are getting bored of being off school already , they still have 19 days off to go. IIRC yours go back before mine ? I must say I enjoy not having the chore of making pack lunches and ironing uniforms and the homework nagging! But ....
Must get their school shoes give me strength on Monday though before they sell out of their favourite and or their sizes.
I'm glad I've only got two in school though, there was a reason I had age gaps, the expense is staggered thank The Lord
