Keeper of the gin logging in!

Good evening, just checking in smile

Have been away in Menorcan sunshine for a few days so just checked the end of the last thread. Sounds very positive indeed and Crimbo will be stupendous smile

On chickenpox watch again here, DGS had it a couple of weeks ago and now DD has two suspicious looking spots. She's had it already but that's no reassurance, I've had it twice.

Evening all.

Evening.
married my DB has never had chicken pox. He's 14. I just hope he doesn't catch it off any of mine when my younger two eventually get them. It's meant to be worse when you're older isn't it?
(DS1 got them at 8 weeks!)

Just checking in before I really, really go on me jollies. Spent the night in a hotel before boarding the ship later today.

Had a giant burger for tea last night. I'm still it very hungry. Clearly I need to up my game before we sail.

Bon Voyage iklboo.

I'd like to go on a cruise like the one in Poirot's Death on the Nile. Old wooden boat, not too many passengers and a nice juicy murder which I'd help solve being v clever whilst looking elegant and glam in a silk dress.

Morning everyone, just checking in 😜🌸😜🌸

Mummylin Mon 08-Aug-16 09:47:11

Have a great time ikl don't fall overboard !!

HerRoyalFattyness Mon 08-Aug-16 09:55:57

Have fun ikl
fid that sounds very glam. I couldn't wear a silk dress. When you weigh 16 stone a slinky elegant dress is not to be worn. To be fair I'd probably be the one to be murdered. And my chalk outline would be a circle...grin

Fiderer Mon 08-Aug-16 10:17:36

Ah well the v clever and elegant and glam in a silk dress is lots of wishful thinking - the whole thing is a fantasy grin

Scoff a custard tart for me in Lisbon ikl and have blast.

My niece has gone into hospital just now to be induced. Waters went last night but nothing else. Back to back baby at moment, estimated weight 9lb. 3oz !! He is just over a week late. Have waited so long for this little one.

Evening folk.

giraffes! MWAH to you too lovely. Don't be a stranger.

I am very jealous of your cruise, ikl. It's far too long since I've been on a ship. Now I will make Fid jealous; I did a 4 night Nile cruise about 9 years ago and loved it.

I really hope the reduced dose of chemo that I'll be getting next week really will lessen the side effects. I'm still struggling. I went to bed just after midnight last night but couldn't get to sleep until around 07.00 am. Thankfully I woke up around 11.30 am as I had my annual appointment with my breast surgeon at 2.30 pm this afternoon. The cording in my left armpit has been really bothering me recently so I'm being referred for some physiotherapy. Then after the hospital I went grocery shopping and while trundling around Tesco I had a really bad attack of cramps / muscle spasms in my hands. They just suddenly seize up into claws and it not only hurts like holy hell, it takes ages for them to relax.

I'm utterly exhausted so heading up very shortly for an early night.

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Tue 09-Aug-16 22:41:16

Will be thinking of you lin and crossing everything that all goes well for your niece.
They might get her on all fours to try and get the baby to turn.
Hope to have good news in the morning.

HerRoyalFattyness Tue 09-Aug-16 23:13:15

Just 47 more minutes and it will be my birthday!!!! (Although I wasn't born until 8:58 at night)

zombie that sounds painful.

Mummylin Tue 09-Aug-16 23:13:34

She has text to say pessary to soften cervix can take hours, then she has to have a drip to start labour so obviously won't be tonight. They have said could all take a couple more days. She isn't happy !

Wolfiefan Tue 09-Aug-16 23:14:59

Nighty night Zombie.

Happy Birthday HRF flowerswine <not for breakfast!

Poor thing lin, will be thinking of her.

Ouch Z, I get that seizing up of fingers when I'm driving sometimes. I've actually had to pull over and wait for it to pass a couple of times.

Mummylin Wed 10-Aug-16 18:26:31

After a very difficult day, my niece is now 8cm. So not too much longer. Fatty and I think he should be born on her birthday. Looks like he could be Fingers crossed!
