First ever attempt at a Shiney thread...I apologise for the swearing in title, I just coudn't help it. Point all complainers in my direction.

bellavita Sat 25-Sep-10 16:04:55

Jaq - I love you! Fab title grin

Bella here, trying to maintain my weight! Looking forward to meeting the girls again in November (along with some Shiners I still haven't met yet).

Jaquelinehyde Sat 25-Sep-10 16:15:35

Oh and I'm jaq trying to lose as much weight as possible. Just started over again last week and so far have lost 12 and 3/4lbs, next weigh in on Monday would be happy with a pound or two.

Glad you like the title Bella, inspired my conversations on the thread the other day grin

BitOfFun Sat 25-Sep-10 16:16:42

Oh I like it. But maybe we should have gone into the little cliquey private bit now instead of celebrations?

What do you think?

VinegarTits Sat 25-Sep-10 16:22:34

is there a cliquey private bit?

Afternoon, have been to Ikea (sorree bof i took my mum) i bought wine glases, bath mat, pot plant and chest of drawers

then i went to the Next sale, which was a load of shite but i did buy a smart slip dress for work

My nans platelet levels are at the point were she could have a stroke or heart attack any minute, my parents have had to sign all kind of papers so that she can die at home when she goes as she doesnt not want to die in hospital sad

FiveGoMadInDorset Sat 25-Sep-10 16:24:24

Oh Vinny, thinking of you and your family,

I am Fanny, I have a long way to go trying hard but things keep happening, need to cut down on bread.

Photos are on FB of new garden and some summer ones.

bellavita Sat 25-Sep-10 16:25:10

Vinny sad

Well seen as we are actually seen as cliquey I suppose it makes perfect sense.... but like Vinny said, is there a private bit? Maybe for the next thread?

BitOfFun Sat 25-Sep-10 16:25:38

Oh Vinny, I'm so sorry sad

Jaquelinehyde Sat 25-Sep-10 16:29:09

Oh vinny how sad

Sorry didn't realise they had a cliquey section...epic fail on my first ever Shiney thread.

Actually do we want to go in the cliquey bit?

bellavita Sat 25-Sep-10 16:30:51

While i remember, another ipod question. Is there a way to make pages bigger? I was mnetting in bed last night, and couldnt read the pagesblush

I have now managed to put all of my music from windows media player onto it though, so its looking goodgrin

Is it a touch screen?

If so, put your finger and thumb together on it and then move them apart while still in contact with the screen. It should expand.

I feel like a reet bad mother...

DS1 and his friends that slept over got a lift into the little market town a few miles down the road (same area as where his school is, so loads of other kids there too). This was mid-morning. He didn't take his phone. He didn't have much money on him. The bus back is a fortune. I said for him to ask one of his friends if he could use their phone to txt or ring when he wanted picking up. I have heard nothing!

DH has come home from being away. He is tired and I am too. We (including DS2) are hungry and said we would have fish and chips. We would like to have a drink too. Managed to find DS1's phone and put it onto charge and looked through for a mobile no of one of the boys - we rang it. He is where he says he was going (no problem there) but he shouted down the phone that he didn't want fish and chips for tea and he wasn't coming home now angry. AIBU to say that DH is picking him up in 10 mins, then going to the chippy for our tea and he is coming home? I have said to DH if he huffs and puffs that he doesn't want fish and chips that he isn't to get him any, he can make do with bread and butter. He is only 13 fgs..

bellavita Sat 25-Sep-10 17:15:50

When I said for him to txt for us to pick him up, I didn't expect him to still be out - I thought that by mid afternoon I would have heard. I know I am spoiling his fun, but surely I have a right to enjoy my tea and a drink rather than wondering when he will txt?

OuchPassVodka Sat 25-Sep-10 17:15:59

Vinny, that is really sad but glad that your parents feel they can honor her wish to be at home. I suppose in some respect it means that your wish is more likely now. Terribly sad though.

Right we have done the last trip before the building work at Joderall Bank. They close tomo. It has knocked ds a bit but there was a lovely mum who said hang on there I know how it feels when ds kicked off. it was nice, but i feel so lucky that he is so high functioning. Her son is not ablt to incorporate coping strategies so life is harder for her.

We are going to make waffles for tea. I need to get the sound desensitation program up and running as he is doing really badly with it atm and stuff he normally copes with is throwing him., too much change atm.

Five - you pictures look amazing! I think we must have waved in you direction a thousand times when we have been in your neck of the woods over the spring and summer.

Jet - good on you girl.
Jaq - fabulous title
DIB - good luck with stewarding tonight. hope you dont get too cold.
bella - glad you got cleaned up and have some peace.

Right coffee drunk and hungry must be waffle making time. grin nice to have a treat for tea.

OuchPassVodka Sat 25-Sep-10 17:28:04

Oh bella. uanbu to insistes he comes home when you deem fit or to let him have bread and butter if he doesnt what his tea. he is 13. your still in charge no matter how much he huffs and puffs. Stick to your guns!

FiveGoMadInDorset Sat 25-Sep-10 17:33:24

Thanks for answering the ipod question, was just about to ask the same.

bellavita Sat 25-Sep-10 17:37:02

Thanks Ouch, I think I have been pretty reasonable with him with the sleep over, making sure they had nice things to eat last night, making bacon butties this morning... Maybe that's the problem that I am too easy going hmm

Lizzylou Sat 25-Sep-10 17:45:47

Great title, Jaq grin

Have been busy moaning and whingeing working and cleaning today.

Boys are feral and driving me bonkers.

Want to live at Fannys.

Hope you are all good, Bella you tell him, he had a big treat with the sleepover yesterday, your turn now.
Ouch, waffles sound good.

Vinny, I am so sorry about your Nan, just hope she isn't in too much pain.

Hope everyone else is OK, off to eat dinner, drink wine and watch more 24.

bellavita Sat 25-Sep-10 18:21:23

The boy has been collected. He is in a foul mood due to lack of sleep. I have explained to him that I didn't want to spoil his fun but enough is enough and seen as he didn't have his phone on him I wasn't prepared to hang around waiting for a call. I have told him to get a shower then go to bed.

Just out of interest Shiney, what colour tights have you worn with your berry coloured dress? I have a soft green sweater and a skirt with the same green in with a berry and blue colour too, would you wear thick cream tights or black ones? I intend to wear boots with said outfit.

Iggi999 Sat 25-Sep-10 18:26:12

Hello, loving the thread title, v easy to find! Wish I could give good DS advice Bella, I am hopeless and am ruled by my 3 year old, who is currently marching around the kitchen telling me what he's having for his tea hmm
I need to toughen up big time!
Very sorry about your news Vinny, what a difficult time for all your family.

Iggi999 Sat 25-Sep-10 18:30:33

Shiney could you run a boot-camp for troublesome children do you think?
You could sort out our offspring while the mums mix cocktails. A drink-in-discipline holdiay camp.

Evening all,

Love the title!! We have to read a different That's Not My....book to DS every bloody night, I feel like smashing my head against the wall each time so the title made me grin

Bella, blimey if one of the DC spoke to me like that I would have marched right over there, dragged him to the car & he certainly wouldn't have got fish & chips. How very rude especially after you let hime friends round last night & he went out today with said friends! Maybe I'm just a cow bag though.

Vinny I'm sorry about your nan

jetcat Sat 25-Sep-10 18:37:18

I have no idea why she has suddenly started calling me mama, but it is very cutesmile

I know i am way late to the party re ipods and ipads, but i am very excited nonthelessgrin I do admit to being mightily confused in argos though while looking for earphonesblush

We have a just short of 10 year gap here, and boy it is hard work sometimes.

I dont know what to do re fb. I have had so many lovely messages from friends saying they missed me, it makes me want to stay on. But, i am still worried over dodgy people trying to find me. It should be ok if i just keep activating/deactivating etc, do you think?

New haircut/colour and eyebrows before and after pics will have to wait until tomorrow.

I would myself up so much about ex h's new BMW that I had to go up and have a bath, then I fell asleep for over an hour in the bath and woke up in the pitch black in freezing cold water grin

As soon as I am ready tomorrow I shall try and take some after pics and shall then upload them on here.

Wow only page 2 and cock is already the main topic of conversation grin

Which reminds me Bella is MrBella still being a sex pest grin

I'm getting excited as on Monday I can book my train and hotel for London grin are people at the travelodge booked in for the breakfast as I reckon I will be craving an alchol soaking up fry up before the train journey.

I will look at all those apps ta, i can see me spending a fortune on them! I managed to wrestle it off mini, only for junior to grab it. May be my turn at bedtimehmm

I am up for brekkie. Not sure where i am staying yet - either at lovely friend's house in croydon (but can get tube back in), at hackney, or in hotel in centre. 1st choice would be dear friend, as we dont get to see each other much, but she is not sure if she will back home in wales for a birthday that weekend. But, cutting through all the waffle, i will be around.

Being serious for a min, I really urgently need to get back on track with keeping an eye on what i am eating - weight it creeping slowly back up, and i am determined not to get back to where i was before. I guess i should really log back on to the lord, and make a big effort. Digital scales have broke though, so i cant weigh food out, and while i do have the money to get new ones, every penny is supposed to be going for the car, so i really begrudge buying thingshmm But, i guess i should prioritise. We shall see.

Looking forward to seeing pics tomorrow Jaqsmile

bellavita Sun 26-Sep-10 09:24:29

Morning smile, << stretches >> we have just surfaced. DS2 just got up and DS1 is still in the land of nod.

We watched Knocked up too Vinny, but I put the last1 half an hour on to record as I was starting to fall asleep. I will watch the rest later this afternoon.

The sun isn't exactly shining here, but it isn't raining either.

Hi Iggs and Wasting.

Sounds like you are zooming ahead Ouch - must be very exciting for you.

I live in a village about 8 miles from the centre of York. I would love to just be able to pop out and do some shopping without having to drive the park and ride and then do the bus journey. Would be nice to nip out and get a skinny latte when ever I felt the need and it only take a couple of mins.

I have no idea what I am going to wear.. I would like to purchase another pair of the French Connection jeans I have, but it seems they have changed them slightly. Best pair of fitting jeans I have ever bought. Need to have a trip into town and have a look around.

OuchPassVodka Sun 26-Sep-10 09:47:43

So am i. It makes it hard to diet though.

Ds is up and excited. I am taking him to see some friends and no doubt be spoilt rotten with attention.

I am on my second cup of coffee and am just about able to string a coherant thought together.

Shiney do you really lock him in his room? The grumpy ones will be after youif you are not careful.

BB-Are you a supporter of the game or a player? Oh and which team?

OuchPassVodka Sun 26-Sep-10 09:48:27

The pics on your profile don't look like Cp but then what do i know.
Either way i hope she gets better quickly, not least so you can continue working.

Went to legoland yesterday. we'd not been before so it was nice. Didn't get to do everything but have decided that the DC can have merlin passes for christmas.
They already have every toy under the sun and the pass would be excellent. we only have them every other weekend so unless something else is planned it would mean we would use them at least once a month. it'd save us a fortune in the long run.

off to see my nephew for his birthday too.
Christmas randyness obviously runs in the family grin

Had an amazing day yesterday...

Street artists, a light experience, dancing, music, and at the end of the day and drums and firework show that completely blew my mind. I haven't been so excited for a looooong time. I would seriously have gone on to paint the town a very bright shade of scarlet if I had been able. grin
My creative batteries were seriously recharged smile

I hadn't realised that last night's film "Knocked Up" went on after the news. I put it on to record. I have sat down this afternoon to watch the rest of it and it has finished where they have a massive argument in the midwife's office. I cannot find it anywhere on "anytime tv" or on "catch-up". Am annoyed with myself.

Roast beef for tea tonight.

Am eating porridge. I have lost a couple of pounds and am feeling positive.

Expensive couple of weeks for us - both cars need taxing (which I will do today) and both cars need a service - which I have just booked. We need a Saturday so they cannot do them until the 16th Oct. I asked how much it would be for the two cars and he said oh don't worry we will sort it on the day. I said no we need to sort it now. He says oh about £140ish each and I said no I need an exact amount (obviously if something needs doing then this will be extra, I expect that). He then said how about £135 each, I said that's better I will take it grin

Morning. Its grey and misling. Suffering a bit of burn out so going to have an ikea trip. I also have an extra hour today as after school clubs started this week. So ds is busy on mondays grin Just drinking first coffee and hoping to find a way to function.

SKy has a funny pink tinge to it. If it was colder i would say it would snow. I hate in the middle weather. either or please. Either medium temp and sun or freezing and sun. I'm happy then.

Havent seen 300. Not sure that i can be bothered after the da vinci fiasco.

Jaq -*Fabulous news. keep going*. You'll shift it.
I have weight loss motivation envy When you are ready will you come a kick some butt Jaqboot. Could we have the exercise for 30mins 3 times a week challenge again?

AliceTheBlueArsedFly Mon 27-Sep-10 14:11:42

Just popping in to say hi smile

Trying to decide whether to go and buy some new riding boots today or not....

Hi Alice!

Sorry you are feeling crappy Vinny. Ulcers sound horrible - do you know what you have?

mittz Mon 27-Sep-10 14:46:23

Bella, well done smile

Vinny..sorry you are ill, hopefuly it will be short lived

OuchPassVodka Mon 27-Sep-10 15:38:26

Sounds awful vinny. But it is a proper reason to be off work so make sure you stop feeling guilty about being off and try to get checked out if possible.

I have done my ironing. Fear of being yelled at by the ironing one meant i got on and it it. virtually all put away too.

Did you get my txt mitts? phone has been playing up.

I am having a bit of an insignificant wibble. Ds' first ever afternoon of after school stuff. nervous about what mood i shall find him in. Anything I can do/take/prepare so that the rest of tonight runs smoothly. tea is pizza and in bread machine to be shoved into pizza at about 4:30pm which means slightly earlier then normal tea. Would a small snack/drink on way home be a good idea (4pm pick up)?

That's not my Shiney, her plumber is polite and innuendo-free.

junior - maaam, mini wont share the ipod. Slams door.

me - share or i will take it off you.

mini and junior - nooooo, you cant take it off us.

OuchPassVodka Mon 27-Sep-10 19:38:52

will give it a go. was glad it was just ds and me tonight as i burnt the first lot of pizza i made for him. There is tons of dought left over as it makes enough for 4 large adults portions.

I am rubbish at scrabble type stuff too. But that would just be because i couldnt spell to svae my life. grin

bellavita Mon 27-Sep-10 19:42:53

On the plus side jet it is quite cute that they call it a pod

I think dough can freeze ouchhmm I hope you are ok by the way.

Mini aibu - mini's party in december (yes, i am already getting stressedblush) I have found a childrens entertainer, who will apparantly take charge of the entire thing - for a price, obv. Given my issues around loads of people, would i be unreasonable to hire such a person, and explain that to them, and say "ball is in your court"?

Lizzylou Mon 27-Sep-10 20:31:45

Zumba = hilarious
I haven't laughed so much (mainly at myself) in ages.
Picture about 50 lancashire women from age 16-60 of all shapes and sizes, all very uncoordinated following one very rhythmic and gorgeous instructor in a sports hall, lots of thrusting, shimmying, and arm pumping. Victoria Wood would have a field day.
I kicked some poor petite young girl blush

OuchPassVodka Mon 27-Sep-10 21:08:08

Jet am ok mostly over tired. just a bit pissed off with people who play mind games. Have had my fill between playground politics and ex. Just heated up the wheat bag for the creature hot friend thing that ds gave me for mother's day (ex helped pick it so it is a cow shape of course <rolls eyes> but it is lovely and lavander scented and i am feeling more chilled. also have a lovely snuggle under a duvet with ds to watch a bit of tv. I think an early night is a good plan.

training tomorrow so it will all be fine.

Iggi999 Mon 27-Sep-10 21:16:22

Evening. DP and I have been competing with "who had the worst class today" stories for the last hour, so needing to come on computer to escape.
Ouch since you first mentioned it, Zumba seems to be cropping up everywhere! Not going to be persuaded to try it though. Think I'd need be drunk.

jetcat Mon 27-Sep-10 21:16:56

at least you may be able to let off a bit of steam at training then. I hope the playground politics aren't too bad.

Vinny - you're too friggin clever - stop showing me upblush grin

OuchPassVodka Mon 27-Sep-10 21:28:55

grin iggy. I think it looks fun. and i might finally learn some coordination. ds loves his new light. its only a push on push off one but means he is control of the light without having to get out of bed.

did you determine who had had the worst day then?

Iggi999 Mon 27-Sep-10 23:19:42

Oh, I think he won by a whisker grin
I asked a student to go and look at a poster in another classroom today as I'd forgotten the detail (a flag) and he came back with a photo of it on his i-phone. It was so inventive I forgot to be angry that he had his phone out!
Thinking of asking him to come round to help me programme the dvd player..

Iggi999 Mon 27-Sep-10 23:25:55

Am off to bed. DS no longer wishes to pee in his nappy so I get woken up in the night to help him to the toilet. So need some sleep! Think I'd quite like to wear a nappy in bed myself if I could (though would not like to be incontinent, obv). What a pointless sentence! Am clearly over tired.
Hope you all get a good night's sleep and some pleasant dreams (of TWC).

I could have slept on this morning, I am still tired

Iggs, I downloaded the app on my phone and then realised it was scrabble. I am so crap at stuff like that I won't even attempt to do it. DS1 likes to challenge me to a game of Scramble (tis a bit like Boggle) and I always lose which is pretty bad really against a 13 year old.

What are we all up to today?

Lizzylou Tue 28-Sep-10 07:44:01

Sorry was watching Spooks, Ouch.

I have no Apple products, DH has an i-phone but I can't get to grips with it.

Potty training going very well smile

OuchPassVodka Tue 28-Sep-10 09:31:53

Oh that was not six hours in one stretch alice that was the sum total of the night.

Ds is back to getting up in the night despite sleep meds. must book doctors appointment to talk about meds dosage. But it really is swings and roundabouts with it. Do we increase the dosage so he sleeps the whole night through but soaks the bed. Or do we leave it where it is so that he can get up for the toilet but cant get back to sleep? Tough call really.

I am main lining pain killers, migraine meds and coffee. I feel slightly ill. think i might go training for an hour or so though. will make me focus on the boring stuff

jetcat Tue 28-Sep-10 10:53:44

trills - i am actually trying to persuade junior to play, as i think the relaxed time limit while playing would really boost her confidence - and she loves scrabble. Havent managed it yet though - so at least people know it is me playinggrin

Hello, hello,

Up to my eyeballs buy dashing in to say hello & lob some fresh baked pasties your way grin

Off to the kiddies birthday party this afternoon where she will be, am hoping MrNorma respects me enough to huddle himself up in a corner with her - we shall wait & see <<wibble>>

Vinny I'm loving all your place updates on FB, mine would be ever so dull, I'm either at home or at school hmm grin

They're far more interesting then mine would be Vin grin I'm actually trying to think of places to go so I look more interesting!

What is this game, I wan to play too <<stamps feet>> I really did!

Training was pointless. It now hurts to breath, stand up, sit down, walk and type. hmm so i am going to have a long hot shower and some lunch then figure out what i can face doing today. Not sure if it is a virus or burnt out. (although miss-jumping wont have helped today.) I think it might just have to be a hot water bottle and a curl up before school collection. I am shivering atm and cant get warm.

I have hair in plughold syndrome here as well, par for the course with an underactive thyroid i think. Tis tres annoying though - i still have bloomin thick hairhmm

I cant cheat at word/scrabble - how would it know which letters are already on the board?confused So no, you will all get to see my impressive knowledge of, err, three to five letter wordsgrin

VinegarTits Tue 28-Sep-10 14:47:15

the trick to these games is to choose your highest scoring letters, then see if you can make a word from them, then see if you can place them on a triple letter space, if not then go for a triple word space, thats how i do it anyway

the bloody thing has to tell me 'word doesn to exist' about 20 times before i actually get it right grin

Lizzy you ok?

Hells poor DD, hope she's better soon.

Jet have started a game with you grin I think I'm addicted!

Thank you Mittz, always have the right words

Vin I keep getting word doesn't exsist too grin

OuchPassVodka Tue 28-Sep-10 15:45:13

I'm glad lizzy. Do you think he will settle down given time to adjust to the different expectations of the school environment?

Ds is sulking as i made him come home straight away rather then play with all the kids after school. I feel terrible and the cold air makes my lungs burn. Can't see anyone until thrusday though and not sure how much they can do anyway. Supposed to be on steroid inhaler but stopped taking it as i seemed better and i was exhausted from not being able to sleep. I have bribed him with applie pies and what was left of the fairy cakes. I have crawled back into bed. Cant amke up my mind if am hot or cold though hmm
