Gigondas Tue 15-Jan-13 07:34:28

brew Anyone? Pen - holding your hand as expect you are feeling a bit nervous.

topsyturner Tue 15-Jan-13 07:42:07

Found you !

Much hand holding Pen , hope all goes smoothly for you .
If you are still feeling horrible when you get there , ask for a Pre med .

I'm still in bed . Have decided its too cold to get up ...

jchocchip Tue 15-Jan-13 07:55:23

Just going to work. Icy here. All the best for today, pen
Good call topsy

PenisColada Tue 15-Jan-13 08:43:39

Thanks can't stop crying . Off for a dog walk in a minute that will take my mind off it.

I have not packed yet but assume I don't need much until tonight / tomorrow morning. Dh is going to bring my bag down later.

smee Tue 15-Jan-13 10:15:04

((((pen)))) deep breaths. You'll feel so relieved when you wake. xx

Slumps down on cushions frustrated. DS is ill with mild stomach bug so whole week's upside down now. How's everyone else doing? I have brew on the go for those who want some. smile

Accidentally posted on the last thread so will c and p

Rushing on quickly to wish Pen loads of luck and good vibes for the op today, tell them you are very nervous my love - they will give you something to calm you down. xx

Off to catch up on your posts - have been out scraping away six inches of snow so I can put food down for the birds!

<puts meal worms and suet on the trolley>

Hooray for HND - brilliant news smile Hope she is home and well on the road to recovery v. soon.

Well done invicta smile

Lots of snow here, but for the first time ever they seem to have been ready for it and roads are well gritted, so no real problems.

DD is playing the accompaniment for a professional opera singer at a do on Sat. - and getting v-well paid for it. She went over to his bloody enormous mansion house to rehearse last night, he is v . nice and has 3 mad dogs and she loves dogs - so hopefully she'll get more work if he does other gigs.

She's also playing church organ on Sunday - so I have to walk to the church with her later in the week so she can practice on the organ (she claims it is spooky in there on your own!)

I'm really pleased she's picking up quite a lot of work at the moment (various other choirs etc also on the go and some teaching)

Have just realised I have book club on thursday - so have to read Howard's End by then, - have so far managed about 50 pages and it is D.U.L.L - someone tell me it gets better please.

Hope little Smee is better soon, and you don't catch his bug Smee.

Love and warmth to all xx

well done to dd kk -she is obviously much in demand. I used to collect T from junior choir thing which was held in a school next to old church and used to walk through the graveyard in the dark -the organist used to practice in the dark church so it was always rather spooky hearing these sounds coming out !
Poor ds smee - hope he feels better soon.

<takes meal worms off trolley and puts hot buttered crumpets on, whilst looking sternly at Kurri> grin

Kurri, 'Howard's End' kind of seeps into you from memory. All I ever remember from studying it is 'only connect', because that was the key to crit. Good about DD and all that work. Most impressive. smile

Hope Pen's okay. Horrible not to be in first thing. Makes it far worse all that waiting.

smee Tue 15-Jan-13 11:16:32

DS is fine, MAS. I had to fetch him at lunchtime yesterday as he had tummy ache, but no other symptoms, so I don't think it's Noro. He has no temp and is still eating so he's having a fine old time. I would have sent him in if he hadn't been sent home yesterday. Am sure he'll be back tomorrow.

I've only ever seen Howard's End (nearly wrote Howard's way) on film, and then never all the way through, just chunks of it whenever it's repeated (which is/.was often)
Glad ds isn't too bad then grin

Found you all grin

Hope DS is enjoying his day off today smee. Good day for staying at home imo as it is very cold.

kurri well done to DD. It sounds like she is much in demand.

Thinking of you today pen hope you have a speedy recovery.

Just back from walking the dog and really need to do some cleaning but can't be bothered having a coffee first.

Gigondas Tue 15-Jan-13 13:00:10

I like the Howard's end film- one of my faves and best thing Helena Bonham carter in. Not sure my knowledge of film will help.

Smee hope ds feels better soon. Am wondering how long til big gig gets something.

All this talk of crumpets may have to buy some.

KurriKurri Tue 15-Jan-13 13:40:38

Howard's End is improving as i progress - I do like Forster normally - but it's a long time since I read any - maybe I need to get back into his 'voice'. Small piece of trivia - one of my school friends was in Howard's End - one of the smaller parts (she was also in East Enders for a while ages ago).

gracie - you are doing well to get your dog out - mine looks out the door and digs her feet into the doormat grin - I've just carried her into the garden for a wee, and then DD had to dry her with a towel when we came back in, - she's now sitting on the sofa wearing a woolly jumper (the dog not DD, - she's wearing an old dressing gown grin)

Its really started coming down heavily again here all my bird food has been covered over. - I might not be able to get to book club at this rate - although I'd like to as we are all going to the pub for A NY lunch.

There's been quite a few nasty viruses ging round in this region - we've escaped so far, but a few friends have had lurgies. Hope DS feels better soon Smee - hopefully no Noro if he hasn't been sick.

MAS - I keep calling it Howard;s Way too grin - I blame Gig grin

topsyturner Tue 15-Jan-13 14:06:02

Someone say crumpets ???
<emerges from blankie/sofa cocoon briefly , growls at meal worms>

Still no snow here <sad face>
HND had the last of her drains removed this morning . No news on when she's getting out yet .
May have to bake cake with file in grin

Gigondas Tue 15-Jan-13 14:06:15

"Discuss the character of ken. Is his love for jan Howard genuine?"

"Why does jack never get any help for his drinking problem?"

"What attracts women to millionaire Edward frere?"

Gigondas Tue 15-Jan-13 14:08:00

Poor hnd- I well remember the break for the border feeling.

Have just scoffed three crumpets.
And kurri that's great about dd.

smee Tue 15-Jan-13 14:54:19

grin at Howards Way exam. Are there pass notes, Gig?

DS has just trashed me at Monopoly. Definitely sending him to school tomorrow.

topsyturner Tue 15-Jan-13 15:06:41

Really really want crumpets now !

Gigondas Tue 15-Jan-13 15:12:43

It's the cold weather- I am sure it hard wires you to want them.

And yes- prof gig does pass notes- this week - the life and loves of abi urquhart

smee Tue 15-Jan-13 15:27:30

Crumpets are good for you. I know, have just had 2 and feel great. grin

I have a pack of crumpets here but I fear I've gone off them-
I must brush up on Howard's Way for the exam....

KurriKurri Tue 15-Jan-13 16:36:51

Gig - will there be questions on Abi's bizarre and alarming wardrobe contents? - I could ace them grin

Also -Jan's Boutique - who are the people who are willing to pay huge sums for hideous clothing and are happy to have it stuffed in an old carrier bag when they've paid?

I think I may have muffins in the freezer and a couple of bagels for the trolley (also some menthol cough sweets if anyone is desperately hungry - not me obviously, I would never scoff cough sweets when there's no food about)
