Morning all, new thread, croissants on trolley, and I'll put a brew on.

Gigondas Tue 20-Aug-13 15:41:43

That would get on my nerves pigeons. Local question - is Reuben's open yet post holiday?

I saw that kurri. Not only is there the spoon thing, the shouty voice and he has the worst teeth on tv and I don't usually notice these things.

Hnd - glad topsy having fun even if had to see smurf film. Bah about wound (my leg wound still not healed 3 months on) but I suppose some end on it would be good.

kk in the land of trophy wives you see a lot of glam women with Greg Wallace types. I once thought someone's husband was the gardener, what with him being 70 and dressed like a gardener with a fag hanging out of his mouth, compared to her head to foot blingy Chanel. I am sure it wasn't the mansion and money that attracted her to him....... gigs full story for next meet up.

Shootingatpigeons Tue 20-Aug-13 15:45:52

gigs it is, opened on Monday grin ciabatta for the trolley....

kitkat1967 Tue 20-Aug-13 16:28:54

Paul Hollywood used to be 'my older man' until I found out that he is only 1 year older than me - made me realise that both DH and I are wearing quite well really grin. (I honestly thought he was mid fifties!!).

kitkat1967 Tue 20-Aug-13 16:32:11

and re onc appt today - I honestly would have been OK about mx if that was decision back in May but all this time I have been told that if we shrink the tumour it will only be a lumpectomy - kind of gave me something to aim for.
In some ways though it will reduce my future irrational cancer thoughts and I know it will be OK. Just means a third surgery next summer to complete reconstruction but hey ho.

Will watch bake off tonight as recommended by fellow trashy tv watcher gigs !
Betsy enjoy your mini break smile
Hnd glad to hear topsy is ok, I enjoyed the smurfs movie !

Starving today reminds me of early pregnancy !

Gigondas Tue 20-Aug-13 17:58:03

Chemo reminds me a lot of early pregnancy- odd appetite , weird taste, nausea, tiredness, moods etc.

What was the programme with Jane Macdonald on malt? I am only gutted that I discovered sun sex and suspicious parents as series ended.

kitkat1967 Tue 20-Aug-13 18:05:51

Gig - I've seen a few of sun sex and suspicious parents - very wierd programme but good for late night viewing if you can't sleep. I'm pretty certain it's often repeated on some of the satellite channels.

malt Bake Off isn't trashy !!! it's the very jolliest entertainment - also fan of Celeb. MasterChef...John Torode stuffs a huge amount in his gob- Gregg holds his utensils like a shovel..
hnd grr that the other hole is opening and closing- bloody annoying.
kitkat they should have mentioned the DCIS in the first place- so sorry that you were upset sad
Had a very lovely day - lunch and then trawling the charity shops where I bought a concrete dog and a v nice linen tunic.
Glad to hear that topsy's having a good holiday,despite Smurfs.

malteserzz Tue 20-Aug-13 18:29:45

The Jane McDonald programme was star treatment itv at 1230 it's dreadful !
Sounds a lovely day Mas

Gigondas Tue 20-Aug-13 19:20:45

Will check it out malt but agree gbbo is like the classiest comfort food of tv.

Big gig wants to see smurfs but sadly I fear my back may never ever not be up to cinema seats yet. So have promised her home cinema with popcorn at weekend . Just need to see what is on sky and duck pigeons pursuing me with her wrath against Murdoch . they tend to have a good selection so am trying to get her into the classics. Is 5 too young for bedknobs and broom sticks.

am feeling happy as only needed one extra pain tab today. unfortunately tho the nerve pain in my left arm is worse and pretty sore and it doesn't touch that.

Kurri I do feel for you as it's a different and very draining kind of pain.

Right better try to wrestle big gig to bed so can get settled in for gbbo.

PictureThis Tue 20-Aug-13 20:36:08

Hello all, lovely new thread. Having a bit of a down day today for no reason other than feeling a bit frightened and fed up but cheering myself up with GBBO, followed by The Midwives.

malteserzz Tue 20-Aug-13 21:32:29

Really enjoyed gbbo fancy cake now! Had pointless argument with ds in the middle though, both ended up in tears but we've made up now. Dh only just got home so been a bit of a long day.
Not seen bedbobs and broomsticks for years!
Picture sorry you're down, cup of tea or wine may help ?
More classy tv viewing here, don't tell the bride grin

amberlight Tue 20-Aug-13 21:34:32

Marking my place....evening all....

PictureThis Tue 20-Aug-13 21:45:28

cup of tea and a piece of chocolatecake Malt

kitkat1967 Tue 20-Aug-13 23:00:29

grrr.... DH spent all evening taking apart and cleaning out washing machine. put it back together and same problem - had so thought it would work!!
New one ordered out of desperation as cannot be without a washing mahine blush - options limited by requirement for swift'ish delivery, still got to hang on until Friday though sad.

Malt - do you also watch Four Weddings - also high trash rating.

Shootingatpigeons Tue 20-Aug-13 23:34:19

Mummy and baby Pigeons watched Don't tell the bride, and Geordie Shore shock , but we talked about how awful they were so that's alright hmm picture this distraction with crap TV is good coping mechanism.

Should pack but still recovering from rage when discovered ipod, amazon chargers and all my earphones had all disappeared, suspect "mum doesn't need them as we are more cool" and "I work so have right to nick them" syndrome.

jchocchip Wed 21-Aug-13 00:26:00

Marking place - have mammogram in afternoon head in sand and fingers in ears humming lalalal. Will be back after! Nighty night

Gigondas Wed 21-Aug-13 06:50:14

brew For jchoc - bum on paranoia box and holding your hand for appt later.

Grr about missing bits pigeons but suspect you are right- dss was a shocker for "borrowing" too. But you can pick stuff up at air port. Have a fab time xx.

Kitkat that's annoying about washing machine. Ours in constant use so would also miss it for even a few days.

Picture hope you are feeling brighter today.

Bit tired as mini gig up in night and then I was finding it tricky to find a comfy position so need brew as sleepy.

Got lots of nice food orders coming today so going to sit in garden , maybe have little walk and wait to scoffsee what I ordered.

amberlight Wed 21-Aug-13 07:26:23

Jchoc, bum firmly on paranoia box. Let us know what's what?

brew for you, Gigs. What sort of food?

Morning all. Plenty of brew all round for those feeling eek today/coping with side effects.

Gigondas Wed 21-Aug-13 07:30:25

Supermarket delivery plus fancy online deli that does nice cheeses, meats and Italian ice cream grin. Will share later on trolley.

Forgot to say that I am pleased that seems to be some action from your ds uni. Just not very helpful that got to point it did (disgraceful really).

will be holding your hand too jchoc
Swimming later and I hope to get some work done.
Lovely friend yesterday was telling me about her FIL's funeral in which her eldest dd and husband (both very accomplished musicians) played Abide with Me on their trumpets -I adore brass and felt myself welling up at the thought.
Italian ice cream delivery sounds yum gig - is there pistachio ?

malteserzz Wed 21-Aug-13 08:49:42

Morning all
Good luck Jchoc will be thinking of you
Have been waking and sleeping all night, just dreamt about watching cruise ships sail past and wishing I was on them hmm feel all fuddled now
This day last cycle I spent all day crying so am doing better anyway
Mas enjoy the swimming
Gigs food sounds yum
Tea welcome amber thank you
