Ta da

I am literally weeping with laughter at that Twitter account. grin

Here is my contribution:

Busy Working Dad? Concerned about your love handles? Put on very large and tight pants. They may give you thrush but at least you will be smooth when people check out your rear.

Boff, you have killed the resuscitated thread by suggesting we all undergo....childbirth.
What were you thinking?

Meanwhile, I like this: twitter.com/manwhohasitall?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

BoffinMum Mon 19-Oct-15 22:43:51

Let's all have another baby .... so we can do another 15 threads!!!

Wheelchairs at the ready!!! (For me, anyway)


(Apart from Springy, natch)

That lady has greying curly hair and the tiles on that floor look like the ones in my house, but other than that neither has much in common with me or my home.
Twas very nice to have a fellow FW to stay.
The threads we wrote were classic, many of them, very funny and very supportive. I flicked through before Boff arrived, as I remembered we did a daft Boff'n'Auld show post once, and there are some seriously funny, witty posts on there.

Is there anything more wonderful than eating until bursting-point whilst in France? I am so envious!

BoffinMum Mon 19-Oct-15 16:40:58

I am joking, these are pictures of the Hotel de Caumont that I visited in Aix which is well posh and really lovely and well worth a detour. It is an art gallery and small stately home. It was so beautiful that I had to recover by having a small Haagen-Dasz nearby in the sunshine while everyone was doing the school run wink

BoffinMum Mon 19-Oct-15 16:38:44

Auld in leisure wear. Her sense of style is timeless.

BoffinMum Mon 19-Oct-15 16:37:01

Here is Auld's sitting room, where we MN of an evening. The wifi also reaches helpfully to the garden. gringringrin

AuldAlliance Mon 19-Oct-15 10:41:02

Still in Provence.
I have sent Boff off to wander around Aix en Provence while I MN during test invigilation work hard.

I want to be force fed in an elegant townhouse sad. Where are you now? I can't remember where you decamped to after Reunion.

BoffinMum Sun 18-Oct-15 14:55:56

I am like one of those foie gras geese, held hostage in Auld's elegant and historic town house.

DID YOU KNOW she has an authentic 19th century lavoir in her garden - an extensive stone laundry facility original from the time of building the house. Vair cool.

BoffinMum Sun 18-Oct-15 14:52:56

During the charming phase, there was a bit of a paper aeroplane incident near the cooker and Auld was most tolerant.

I am actually too full of food to move now. She made me eat two slices of home made quiche, tomato salad, grated carrot, and raspberry tart for lunch and force fed me two glasses of red wine and some liqueur. Literally force fed, I was. If she brings one small wafer thin mint near me I am doomed.

AuldAlliance Sun 18-Oct-15 11:44:03

Greetings, Fanjo Warriors!

Boff is here for a long weekend, observing my wonky marriage, buying me world class lunches, and charming my kids.

Good Luck with the IVF, Springy, fingers crossed.

Zulu, congratulations on all your running.

Puzzle, those dresses are...well, words fail me, actually.

Nice to hear from you all! Seems ages ago that we filled a thread a day. Hope everyone is well and the April kids are thriving.

BoffinMum Sun 18-Oct-15 07:47:54

Brian is about to be shrunk with tablets. HA!
The carpet company sold me enough to recarpet the entire house, charged top dollar, and then when it developed a fault a month after fitting they refused to accept liability, so I was left with stained and flattened carpets full of manufacturing faults and told to get on with it. They ignored my first specialist report so I have commissioned another. We are currently in dispute and the ombudsman is dealing with it. War. Don't buy Westex Carpets.

Springymajig Sat 17-Oct-15 23:17:05

Well, that all sounds very intriguing! How is Brian doing? And what did the carpet company do to offend?

BoffinMum Sat 17-Oct-15 22:20:20

New and better job a couple of years back.
A few family crises that I can't go into here.
Made over the house and had a big fight with a carpet company.
Grew a fibroid called Brian.
Learned to ski.

That kind of thing.
Currently staying with Auld and having a Very Nice Time.

Springymajig Sat 17-Oct-15 21:57:41

Ooh, I might have a look at that, thanks.

I'm so pleased that you've got it more under control now. It must have been so totally demoralising - you're not a woman who is well suited to being limited in such a way!

Springymajig Sat 17-Oct-15 21:55:31

God, the idea of 3 x DS is just terrifying. Poor Barbarella shock It would definitely be nice to have a catch up though; it would put a lot of things into perspective!

What have you been up to?

BoffinMum Sat 17-Oct-15 21:51:15

BTW Springy, can I recommend Zombies! Run! which is a great 0-5k running app for phones and very motivating.

Did I tell you I went on a pain management course and have got a lot better, SPD-wise? Still not perfect but much more in control?

BoffinMum Sat 17-Oct-15 21:49:16

You say that Springy but that is how you are likely to conceive your twins by accident at the age of 40. Trust me. winkgrin

Now, speaking of multiple births, it's Barbarella I would like to track down. Triplets being 6 now means SURELY she must have a bit of time to update us? Hm?

Springymajig Sat 17-Oct-15 21:43:02

Haha, Boff, I started typing a whole thing about the irony but thought that I was already being overly chatty so deleted it! But yes, quite... It isn't even just DH though - I've now been diagnosed with PCOS and hormonal imbalances, etc. between the two of us, natural conception is virtually impossible. On the plus side, we'll never have to interrupt the moment for condoms ever again! Every cloud!

Springymajig Sat 17-Oct-15 21:40:16

Thanks Puzz smile The Paris trip sounds amazing - what a lovely idea. I always find the Eiffel Tower to be strangely grounding. I went to Paris by myself after I separated from Dickhead and spent a lot of time just sitting near it, feeling all zen. I keep thinking that we should take DS at some point, so you'll have to let me know how you find it / hints and tips!

BoffinMum Sat 17-Oct-15 21:33:58

Fucking spellcheck

BoffinMum Sat 17-Oct-15 21:33:33

Best of luck, Springs Old Girl, although there is a certain irony in the IVF situation given George's enthusiastic appearance into the world.

Puzzle, 'posted some tags and ran'. Not every day you can say that phrase. grin

Ah, the joys of MN.

No need for a fem.... Just be who you are and fuck the stereotypes... smile
