over hear night owls grin. Unless we are somewhere else grin

KittyAndTheFontanelles Sun 24-Mar-13 01:48:49

Oh dearblush I clearly meant here

Do you love me now cafe? confused

KittyAndTheFontanelles Sun 24-Mar-13 02:10:50

I'll post the post I tried to post before it wouldn't let me post anymore posts......grin

Shucks, cafe blush you always make me blush wink

She's improving slowly, thank you for asking. Her temp is reducing and she fettled a prawn linguine earlier grin . She didn't sleep at all today but went off quickly earlier and has just woken for the first time tonight so that's an improvement in itself. Let's see if she goes off again and for how long.

So you are Alicia not House tonight? Do you know much about medical law? <might pick your brains>

I've eaten another Easter egg and a packet of pork scratchings hmm

MrsShrek3 Sun 24-Mar-13 03:36:51

hey.... found you!!
who's around tonight then?

MrsShrek3 Sun 24-Mar-13 03:53:34

<pulls up seat>
hehe cafe, I'm munching snickers tonight too (did that sound a bit wrong or is it my dirty mind?)
pmsl at "ruining Camberwick green"... d'ya reckon there'd be dealers and prostitutes in it if it were on now? <faints> more the point, what character would justin/mr tumble be, cos he's in everything?grin If there's a dealer it would definitely be that Archie dude in Balamory, he's a seedy sort (blimey, now look what you've started wink )

I fell asleep at 10, with dd in my bed, hence had my 4 hrs (a good nighs kip, remember) so that will be me done for the night. Refusing to go and do ironing, load dishwasher, etc. so instead I'm staying in bed with my ipad grin and kicking self for forgetting to take meds this morning. Saturday is the hardest day to remember because it's full of random stuff and no "morning break" to take it at 11 <rambling now> sigh. hope tomorrow /Monday won't be crap as a result. more sighs.

KittyAndTheFontanelles Sun 24-Mar-13 05:51:29

Oh Mrs you doity snickers muncher grin

Are you still awake? Just you and me in this thread then. Do you think the others will find us? Or are you all now elsewhere? I'm sorry you forgot your meds. I know what you mean about the weekend being none-routine days. I hope it doesn't have a detrimental knock on effect. sad

There would definitely be hoodies and yoofs in Camberwick Green and lots of 'for sale' signs. I haven't got a telly so can't comment on your other speculation but I've heard whisperings about some of the Octonauts and don't get me started on that Pippin grin

<toddler group grapevine>

I bet you've done all your housework by now haven't you? grin Does that mean the day is yours? I need to make an Easter bonnet but don't have the material yet. sad

KittyAndTheFontanelles Sun 24-Mar-13 05:53:48

How's your husb by the way? How are you? How old is your daughter?

<fires questions unnecessarily at MrsShrek>

Welovegrapes Sun 24-Mar-13 07:42:46

Hellloooo - I had lost you all!!

Dr cafe, I thought your law days were behind you?

Kitty, glad mini Kitty is eating.

Jynier, there is always a serpent in Eden (dealers) but it doesn't make it any the less heavenly!

Midwife, sorry your son is stuck sad maybe you can have a nice long chat on the phone to part make up for it?

Waves at mini, stars, dad and mrs!

I'm feeling a bit better today as DS is still in good health - first complete week of being well for over a month - and was finally able to have the jab yesterday he's been long overdue.

With the measles outbreak in Wales I was getting worried I wouldn't get him to the dr before the measles got to him, but we seem to have won the race smile DH came with me for the first time and didn't like watching the needle go in! He is a sympathetic soul and adores DS. Now I'm just hoping he will be one of the lucky ones who doesn't get the rash/fever after the jab!

I'm doing a bit better at making friends too I hope - we've moved somewhere I don't know anyone but have managed to arrange two play dates for DS for next week smile

MrsShrek3 Sun 24-Mar-13 09:42:36

yay grapes has found usgrin

Someone broke mn. I posted then couldn't get back on (site error message) til a bit after 5 so I gave up.

DH is absolutely knackered, has just done 4 weeks full time hours and should never have had to do that angry great intro to the world of work after eight months off with cancer. A colleague of his who has been off with a skivers disease I can't remember whether it is "bad back" or "stress" is getting a proper phased return and he is picking up some of her hours this week shock angry angry ffs. I'm having to ignore the lot of it or I am likely to kill someone.
dd is 7... she has had a rubbish week. she got through most of dhs dx and treatment fairly unscathed, not sure whether it was as she was only 6, but since she has turned 7 it seems to have hit her in a big way hmm sad
going back to read grapes post properly now. If I had been able to get back on mn last night I was more than slightly tempted to inbox the crew a link to this thread.... still might?!

Midwife99 Sun 24-Mar-13 09:54:21

Marking my place!! grin

MrsShrek3 Sun 24-Mar-13 10:11:16

wink
inboxed some people grin

Midwife99 Sun 24-Mar-13 10:41:22

I stupidly wrote a massive post on the old thread then realised it had reached 1000! Tut!

Hi y'all! Kittybitty - my eldest is pissing it up reading computer science at the University of Manchester. He is coming home today! Snow subsiding!

Jynier - the drug/crime culture is everywhere! Unfortunately DS2 is a drug user who is currently at her majesty's pleasure (again). I can't see at way out for him at the moment -the drugs/crime/eviction/homelessness cycle. sad

I too love the Wye valley - lived there as a child & quite near still. Beautiful. smile

Minimammoth Sun 24-Mar-13 11:49:01

Digs self out of snowdrift, waves

Midwife99 Sun 24-Mar-13 11:53:02

Hello Mini!smile

Minimammoth Sun 24-Mar-13 12:37:02

Thanks for message Mrs. I was adrift. Just catching up. Back later.

KittyAndTheFontanelles Sun 24-Mar-13 15:01:52

Sorry everyone, my silly thread title obviously wasn't clear. sad

Stupid kitty.

Mini are you cosily snowed in? Hot chocs all round brew

Mrs I can't believe how your husband has been treated at work. It's appalling. Is it not worth complaining/flagging up the effect such shifts will have on him? Surely they have to do something about that. confused It's simply not acceptable thanks

KittyAndTheFontanelles Sun 24-Mar-13 15:03:47

themidwife glad your son is coming home. Is that him home for Easter then? Clever boysmile

KittyAndTheFontanelles Sun 24-Mar-13 15:07:36

Hi grapes thank you. Glad your brave little bundle is on the mend. I hate the jabs sad. I always feel like I've let her down; like she's thinking "Why did you let this happen, mummy?"sad

<dramatic>

Hope he gets off Scott free smile

Welovegrapes Sun 24-Mar-13 15:33:42

Thank you Kitty smile

Midwife I am so sorry about your DS being inside. Some family friends had a son sentenced. He is now 25, out and while not totally settled is living with his dp and much much more sorted. They went through so much with him and I can honestly say they were parents any child would be lucky to have. I don't think you can always prevent some dc getting into dark places sad But their son has come back from all that, which they are relieved about. Hopefully your DS will be the same.

Welovegrapes Sun 24-Mar-13 15:35:55

Just catching up on other posts, mrs I am so angry that you oh's work are being so rubbish! I presume it was supposed to be a staged return?

Mini I hope you aren't too snowed in, or are cozily drinking hot drinks anyway smile

Minimammoth Sun 24-Mar-13 15:49:00

Had about 6-8 ins of snow here, and it's frozen overnight so have had to chisel it off the windscreen. 6 miles away there is hardly any. Glad people and little ones are mending. Tough number for your DH mrs
We have had a worky morning, but chilled afternoon, watching Grand Prix. No snicker munching here though, we are watching waistlines.

Midwife99 Sun 24-Mar-13 17:13:01

Thanks Grapes. The frustrating thing is that when he is inside & off drugs he's really nice. He phones, writes me lovely letters, draws me lovely pictures & repeatedly says he wants to change his life. He comes out & within a fortnight he's back to square one, demanding money & taking drugs & getting aggressive. I hope he gets there one day hmm

Minimammoth Sun 24-Mar-13 17:56:48

My children still remember having jabs. I had said 'no they won't hurt', etc. the Dr was unskilled and unfeeling, it hurt, ' you lied mummy' < they are in their thirties now- we laugh about it> but I felt so guilty, I'd let them down.

Welovegrapes Sun 24-Mar-13 18:19:50

Aah Mini - sometimes dc really cut through the bs smile

Midwife, that is good to hear that underneath he cares and is the same lovely person. There is definitely hope and the boy I know is so much more sorted now.

MrsShrek3 Sun 24-Mar-13 19:44:08

Kitty I think your thread title is ace (but I'm weird toogrin )
and anyway I've inboxed everyone a link wink smile
