Here here!!
As in a second stunt not I'm here I'm here! blush

Positive thoughts. Spring, sunshine, daffodils and cherry blossom. Must all be on their way. Along with baby bunnies, chocolate bunnies and fantastically healthy, well behaved November 2012 babies. Who are too young to eat their Easter eggs so we'll have to eat them on their behalf.

Contradictionincarnate Thu 14-Mar-13 06:58:01

here here PR I LOVE spring! seems to have come early past few years ...not this one sad ... long hot summer!?

MadamGazelleIsMyMum Thu 14-Mar-13 07:21:33

Gah lost post as PR finished thread <must check how many posts left when on p40>

It was something about no routine and won't even try until after sleep regression <gulp, L is 15 weeks tomorrow> L sleeps about every 2 hours.

Also thanks tits I'm also rushing off to m&S website -you should ask for commission!

Taking L for second jabs today sad

Need to think of something to be grateful for will post later

bplp hope dh is ok,will he go and see gp?

Easier would be lovely! smile

Brockle Thu 14-Mar-13 10:01:31

today is easier as I didn't have to do the morning school run smile and its bloody cold outside. Y is 16 weeks today and starting to form his own routine, long may it continue smile

BigPigLittlePig Thu 14-Mar-13 10:04:58

lilliana he's already on antidepressants, I think this bout stems from a few months back, he decided to reduce the dose, with the GP, but rather than do it slowly he thought he knew best so halved the dose. He was fine for 2 weeks then the depression hit badly, so he put the dose back up. He seemed to be getting better, but now I'm not so sure. I asked whether he wanted me to make him an appointment, but he said he's not ready to yet. So for now we will carry on on the same medication.

On a completely separate note, does anyone else's LO get really quite sweaty feet?!

Bryzoan Thu 14-Mar-13 10:20:06

Easier sounds good :-)

Not much sleep here either though I am thankful I got more than tits did.

I am thankful to see stunt back as she so often has such lovely wise words to share.

I am thankful for hearing about life's little victories - go MrG's J!

I am also very thankful for my wonderful new boba carrier - both G and Dd love it and it is soooo comfy to wear, and has a hood. I have a code for 5% off at b2boutique where it came from if anyone is looking for a new carrier.

I am sorry to hear about your cat pr, and also about your husband pig. Perhaps he should pop to the docs if he is feeling a bit strange with it? Sending you patience till he feels better.

Sweetpea it is lovely to hear you sounding supported and happier. I'm thankful for that too.

Just dropped dd at preschool and danced the hokey cokey with her and her class in the sunshine (thankful), had my free coffee (thankful) and did a spot of shopping at waitrose, and am now sat feeding my gorgeous boy in the sunshine (more thankfuls). Got g's weekly hip check in Southampton this afternoon - if I can just stay awake enough to get there and back and the scan shows all is still well it should be a nice day. Happy Thursday all!

YellowWellies Thu 14-Mar-13 10:20:50

Today I'm thankful for the wonderful 17 years I had my Mum. She'd have been 59 today. Sadly this is the year that marks us being longer without her than with her. Feeling more robbed than thankful to be honest, especially as I gaze at my wee man and, given recent news about my Dad's health - wonder if he'll have any memories of grandparents on my side sad

Bryzoan Thu 14-Mar-13 10:27:55

Hugs yw I would feel robbed too. I am so sorry your dad is unwell too and hope he has a good while yet. One of my grandads died before I have real memories I think - but some of the photos of us together and stories about them i've been told are so familiar now that they feel like memories. I am sure that is of little comfort though. X

ValiumQueen Thu 14-Mar-13 10:48:00

Big hug YW make a memory book is my thought. Get your Dad on board too if he is well enough and it would not distress him further. I got my mum and dad to do one as they are 70 and 80 so unlikely to be around to see my kids into adulthood. It is lovely and my mum found it particularly helpful. DHs Dad died before we were married, and my DD said the other day she really misses him. She never knew him, but he is talked of so often she thought she had. We actually think she saw him as a toddler as there was a corner of his lounge that she used to look at and smile at, proper engage with, like there was someone there. She was barely speaking, and some folks are of the opinion that wee ones are most susceptible to spirits at that age. Bit woo, but a comfort all the same.

Lilliana Thu 14-Mar-13 10:51:08

I'm thankful for my lovely friends who although they have lots going on, live far away and we don't get to see each other very often still think of us and make the effort to see us whenever they can.

I'm thankful L is healthy after her check yesterday and I'm sure I should be thankful for jabs (not feeling that way atm but will once they are over and she is protected from horrible diseases)

I'm thankful I got some sleep last night and feel slightly more human.

I'm thankful for all of you lovely ladies and man for all your support and wise words.

Sophiathesnowfairy Thu 14-Mar-13 10:51:44

yw you made me cry. sad big hugs. Xxxx thanks

That Katy what's her face Apprentice woman is everywhere at the mo. WHY? confused

Went to Windsor. Had 09:00-12:00. By myself. No need to worry about feeds. How long was I? Well my parking was less than an hour.

Now ladies I need your opinion. I ave had four children and worn high heels for years and wrecked my feet. I have a bunion. <wails> ....but I like high heels. They look nice with dresses for work. But I just can't do it anymore. So I was wondering about whether these are just too square shoes

I have had some Ecco boots this winter and they are so comfy. So I am wondering if they might just keep me in heels.

Anway what do you think?

BigPigLittlePig Thu 14-Mar-13 10:58:23

sophia they are still higher than anything I can safely wear confused. I had to attend a court case a few years back, but had to work in the morning so rocked up wearing uber-smart togs and heels. Nearly crippled myself. It's a bloomin' good job there were no dramas that needed running to that day!

Pikz Thu 14-Mar-13 11:09:55

I think they are great for work Sophia.

YW huge huge hugs xxx I like VQs idea of a memory book.

Hugs YW. VQ's idea of a memory book is lovely.

BP babylaughalot gets sweaty feet. I thought they were just cold the first time I noticed, but they were definitely wet too confused

Today I'm very thankful that babylaughalot is happy and well, and truly living up to her name at baby massage yesterday, dissolving into fits of belly laughs when I reached her armpits grin

Loving seeing the meet up pictures on FB, I'd be up for a midlands meet too.
