Tx, Mrs - to add to my delight:- little baby great-niece is fine and healthy; according to my niece, baby has the most amazing afro hair (couldn't see this in the pic as little girl was wearing a bonnet)! Such a relief that everything is fine! My sis said that SHE is absolutely exhausted! Understand as they had all been in hosp since Sunday!

cafe you did it you clever person you! Sod your gruesome ex in-laws, you are a-maze-ing! So what next? Do you have more studying to do or are you let loose unfettered on the general public now? I don't know how this doctoring thing works.

Poor LBK and poor kitty. Hand foot and mouth can be grim (DD had it a couple of times, although once was almost certainly chicken pox and we just didn't realise, as she's never obviously picked up chicken pox despite DS having it twice, quite badly). I bet the heat's not helping either.

Have you tried any alternative therapies for your lumpiness, mini?

Mrs, have more wine, more beer and more cake. Was your weekend away nice? I hope your DH can focus on that, it must be awful not to be able to pick the phone up to his mum any more.

Vital statistics: age - 38. BMI - 22 (bloody chemo weight gain, nothing to do with stuffing my face in fancy restaurants/Dominos pizza (strike out words which do not apply). Height - 5' 6". Children - 2 thereof, aged 6 and 3. Pets - none (DH doesn't count).

DH has been in California since last Sunday and isn't back until tomorrow. He can't get his head round the time difference and calls to speak to the children at 11 o'clock at night! It's been kind of nice to have a little time on my own but he can come back now.

The birds have started chirping already...

And congrats on your great-niece, jynier!

themidwife Sat 13-Jul-13 11:54:10

Morning all! Congrats Jynier!! Hope your husband gets back soon Bluey and stops phoning at 11pm!!

Well - I went to a 50th birthday party lady night wearing pretty much exactly what I used to go out in in 1984!! It's taken 2 washes, 3 conditions & a tangle teaser to restore my hair this morning!! I'd forgotten how hot so much make up, massive hair & goth clothes & boots are!! gringringrin

Congrats jynier went to town today to look at phones for dd and upgraded mine it took dd and dp to get it working ie texting reason I inputted dds. Num in wrong much eye rolling from dd!!!! Poorwashing manchine this morning I said that silly sentence " any washing starlet" que much rustling and three loads of stuff comes from room I think her sports bag she came over with is a tardis!!!

jynier Sat 13-Jul-13 22:27:43

Thanks, all! Hoping to see darling youngest niece (adore her!) and her daughter next week!

Meanwhile, am thrilled at the news that the Liverpool Care Pathway is to be axed! Have been involved in the campaign for some time. Am not saying that terminally ill people should suffer in their final stages of life but think that it is disgusting that hospitals have received large amounts of money for placing patients on the LCP.

Recommend that you all attend, if possible, meetings of the CQC in your own areas! If your district works under the same principles, you will be treated to a fine buffet, plus desserts!

On to the next major concern ... doctors are being paid bonuses to NOT refer patients to hospital specialists!!!

Checking in to new thread. Back from weekend away at DD1s, beach and sea. And lovely to watch GC enjoying the sun, running around not a care in the world. Oh to be 3 again.

themidwife Sun 14-Jul-13 19:22:55

I look at my 3 year old & think - ooh new knees & feet - how lovely!!
It must have been amazing at the beach this weekend Mini!

Minimammoth Sun 14-Jul-13 20:24:01

It was great. Even went in sea, well up to the waist. 'twas a bit cold but after a few minutes you can't feel your legs. I love seaside. All that exited running with the bucket to get water to fill the castle moat. Ahhhh.

cafecito Sun 14-Jul-13 20:48:58

Bluey I have more studying... lots more studying.. which is good as right now I know nothing. A friend was in an rtc the other day and asked me to dress their wounds - I was like, er, I haven't done this module grin I did it but they passed out with the pain. hmmm. Also doing masters so more exams in October which I am sposed to be working for now....lalalaaa....

had to work yesterday inside all day with no air con! gulp! today was off but the one day I got sunburn I am now peeling. I had an interesting chat this morning with the fellow from extreme A&E while buying coffee though, he's so nice

cafecito Sun 14-Jul-13 20:51:18

though I am sure he was thinking yuck at my peeling shoulder [not selling myself very well here]

I have finally mustered the energy to find my fan from deep within the kitchen cupboards of stuff never unpacked from moving (I have BABY food and bottles and doidy cups, DS is a huge thing now. oops) but fan is lovely. aaaahh

MrsShrek3 Mon 15-Jul-13 02:21:44

cafe, all that hard work has made you even more insane grin

themidwife Mon 15-Jul-13 11:29:42

We're rubbish insomniacs Mrs!! How are you?

SummerDad Mon 15-Jul-13 22:05:10

Hi all <gnome being resurrected from ethereal nothingness>

I hope everyone is doing good grin

Jynier congrats on the new great news. Just read the news about liverpool care path and first name that sprang to mind was you. Brilliant success !

Waves to summer dad and all others we doing ok starlet v quite today sigh saw new marks on her legssad

MrsShrek3 Mon 15-Jul-13 22:40:24

hi all

MrsShrek3 Mon 15-Jul-13 23:34:16

oi. nocturnal ones. over 'ere! if you are not already tucked up in bed snoring pfft call yourselves insomniacs indeed grin

jynier Mon 15-Jul-13 23:56:06

Hi, all! Have to be quick as laptop is still not fixed! If I'm honest, I am waiting (same as all older people) for a hand-me-down from one of my DC!

Bluey - all my thoughts are with you!

Stars - hope starlet is ok now!

Mrs - sorry that you were on your own last night; agree with midwife that we have all become rubbish insomniacs!

Not even commenting on our dad.

To date, apart from my own 3DC and 3DG, I have 12 beloved nieces and nephews (6 of each, who are all wonderfully clever and musically talented) and 5 great-nieces and 4 great-nephews. My neighbour Lily (you all know about her - 91 years young next birthday!) told me about a lady at her lunch club who is very ill and does not have one relative at all. Find this so sad. Front-page news today that Norman Lamb wants communities "to wash and feed the elderly." I have a very fit 24-y-o neighbour ... ! Will make sure that he sees the article and suggest that he should come into the shower with me! Lol!

jynier Tue 16-Jul-13 00:27:54

Hahaha! How could I not have mentioned cafe? We spent sooooo many nights together! Helped her with her revision, y'know! Sending best wishes to you, cafe, and am very, very proud of you!

VitoCorleone Tue 16-Jul-13 00:33:11

Mind if i join? Not much chance of getting any sleep tonight sad

jynier Tue 16-Jul-13 00:40:15

What's wrong, Vito? You can tell us ... !

VitoCorleone Tue 16-Jul-13 00:43:31

Asked DP to leave tomorrow. He's said some fucking horrible, hurtful things to me tonight. I have a thread in chat about it.

Im so angry and disgusted, i never want to see him again.

jynier Tue 16-Jul-13 01:02:27

Oh dear, Vito! - Checked out your thread; am so sorry for what you are going through! Stay strong!
