Yes. Plus I believe that when one is on ones holidays, one should feel well rested?

Pikz Thu 09-May-13 21:36:50

Bplp and chasing in blaming you both for meaning I need to look at detectives cousin! blush

Pikz Thu 09-May-13 21:38:40

See we are going to lots of glam destinations but so DP can jump out of perfectly good aeroplanes whilst I attempt not to let LO kill himself at drop zones. We've done France and will be doing holland, South Africa, Canada and Spain.

TheDetective Thu 09-May-13 21:40:21

You dirty biatches grin.

I'll invite you to the next family do - his brothers wedding grin. Save the date ladies wink.

Well O went to Switzerland. The same as DS1 for his first holiday! I would like a little weekend away in July before DP goes back to work. I don't know where though. And it has to be cheap. And not in a fucking tent grin. And no more than 2 hour drive!

BPLP Nope, the heart attack couple were at the top of the chain. My buyers were the bottom of the chain. Good memory! Heart attack man is recovered but due to dragging their heels and generally not being as open and honest about things as they could have been, led to my buyers having enough and pulling out. Aparantley they have "found" some extra money and are going to go for a bigger property. Wish I could find money like that. I'm lucky to find a quid.

Cheers for all you well wishes and for the swearing detective Knew I could count on you on that front smile

We are off to cyrpus next month. Can't come quick enough!

TheDetective Thu 09-May-13 21:45:15

There could be a trade of cousins going on here!

ValiumQueen Thu 09-May-13 21:45:36

detective I do hope he does not need AA. I will be gutted if we have another relapse and change, and I think the Doctor would section me.

TheDetective Thu 09-May-13 21:45:58

grin Eliza.

I don't like to disappoint!

ValiumQueen Thu 09-May-13 21:46:42

They are lovely lovely boys and I blush when I see pictures of them half naked and gyrating blush

daisychain76 Thu 09-May-13 21:47:42

We're off to Majorca in a month or two. Never been abroad with any of the dcs and am petrified of flying hmmm, should be interesting!

DS1 (8) came home from school telling me that a boy in his class has "a press" on a girl in his class. Took a while to work out that he meant "a crush"!

Tried H with thai green curry tonight, which he was completely uninterested in despite me spending about an hour painstakingly making the curry paste myself. Then pear and blueberry crumble with cream, which was a definite hit.

daisychain76 Thu 09-May-13 21:48:47

Realised my post totally ignored everything being discussed. Sorry, not caught up. Supposed to be working...

TheDetective Thu 09-May-13 21:56:39

I got a booklet from the HV's today on milk free weaning.

It's quite funny.

I'll share one of the recipes.

Milk free Custard.

2 rounded teaspoons of custard powder. 200ml of milk substitute formula.

Mix together. Put in pan. Whist over medium heat until custard thickens.

I feel so wrong when I find a man attractive. And then find out he is 16 or some such ridiculous age. Terrible!

PennieLane Thu 09-May-13 22:11:05

How odd detective!

We went to Lux, our next trip is Ireland, would love to go to O.P.T or Israel actually! Amazing!

We're driving to Ireland in a borrowed camper van, we could be ready to kill eachother at the end of it!

KatieLily12 Thu 09-May-13 22:14:28

Oh dear

LO loving solids but really struggling with more solid poos. She's crying and straining and only produced pellets and now nothing. Poor thing. I've tried massage and she's getting plenty of milk feeds and water with meals. Anything else we can try. She's really uncomfortable.

Kyzordz Thu 09-May-13 22:18:05

Evening all!

Aw chasing there are far better people in our quiche to use as inspiration for weaning. Besides, sounds like you're doing fab smile

I couldn't click a weaning link someone posted on t'other Fred. I also can't remember who posted it blush

Today e was offered something each meal and whilst he did well I don't want to overwhelm him. Depending on how he is I'll offer something at lunch. Probably pear again because I was chuffed to bits he took a whole cube and enjoyed it! His cough is awful and wakes him from naps, he had an hour today and has woken several times since bed time sad no temp and very bright. Only other thing is he did a small mucousy poo this morning and nothing since. Lots of farts though! The amount of poo is unusual

eliza that sucks sad

horsey what are you annoyed at?

So, I deduce from info, food is important but no need to stress as long as milk is drank and a variety of food is offered it will work out ok.

Most important bit certainly for me is don't panic and stress.

I'm sure I meant to say more! Hope sleep is had all round

TheDetective Thu 09-May-13 22:18:18

A tiny bit of prune juice in her water will help her go Katie.

TheDetective Thu 09-May-13 22:19:26

And you can't be as bad as spag bol cousin kyz grin

Kyzordz Thu 09-May-13 22:19:59

Sorry LO is uncomfy katy have you tried sugar in the water or prune juice (think its diluted but someone else will know for sure)

horseylady Thu 09-May-13 22:20:47

We've been to France.

Currently debating going to my parents place in spain or buying another house.

My fil is pissing me off. He went away last week. Came back fri called dh said he was depressed going to stay at sil. Came back sat, both of us out. Lots of phonecalls. Came over Sunday, Monday morning, Monday night. Said he was going to commit suicide. Called us both twice Tuesday. I spent 4 hours round there yesterday doing stuff for the business (his) and his holidays. We both went out last night. Today he called me four times. About how to send an email, do a letter, change the font etc. ds been either laughing or screaming. Dh came in, went out again. Left me with screaming child. Fil came round as dh got in. More business talk about fucking tax. And how my he's paying. He doesn't get it. I've still not done my horse. Ds kicks off again.

I just went upstairs.

Ds then fell asleep in the bath?! My patents did my horse.

Kyzordz Thu 09-May-13 22:22:32

Lol very true det! Mum got me to write a list of the things he has liked/tried and theres more there than I thought! Seems alot of the time my timing has been wrong and what he's eaten once he's refused another time probable due to tiredness or too full/hungry

KatieLily12 Thu 09-May-13 22:26:48

Was it this link? http://www.who.int/features/qa/21/en/index.html

Not sure how to hyperlink on here.

You ok horsey?

Thanks for prune tips. Will get done tomorrow. Poor thing is desperately uncomfortable. I feel bad, like I should be slowing her down but she is loving her grub. I've popped some dried apricots in water in fridge overnight to purée in morning and will add to breakfast. I've read that it can help. Not sure if she'll take purée. She seems to be a BLW's dream child. I tried to give her steamed apple and she spat it all out in favour of chunks of mango. Strong willed lassie this one!
