Do you live over my way Ruby?
I'm in the north west.

I quite like the swing style peacoats, might order one later that I've seen.

Annianni Fri 04-Oct-13 17:39:06

And thanks for the kitchen advice.
We've got a few ideas now that I think would work, and after seeing Novice's kitchen pics, they make more sense to me obviously ours would be a lot smaller and we would have access to the outside (back garden) with it then being open through to the dining room and big doors or similar.

Encouraging a minor (and only 14) to drink a mixture of alcoholic drinks w/ no real way of gauging intake is sodding dangerous. No wonder you are mad Dry. I'd be ready to rip their heads off.

Yes to grim memories of Pernod and Black Anni. I don't really drink because I had to be pumped out at university after drinking most of a bottle of Smirnoff Blue. I thought Blue = Milder. The Bouncer found me slumped in the bathrooms and I would have died had he not.

mignonette Fri 04-Oct-13 18:07:13

I meant I have never forgotten the horror of being pumped out, being held down by staff and it put me off alcohol for life.

MarshaBrady Fri 04-Oct-13 18:44:14

Novice ah for you. Hope your day improved lovely.

Dry I don't blame you! 14 is very young.

Anni really pleased he's fine.

Mig oh that is bad, poor you. I remember a girl being pumped at university after a pub crawl. So much drinking.

I am looking at the most gorgeous sunset. Dh had the day off so we could get some stuff sorted. It was a lovely day.

Decameron Fri 04-Oct-13 18:54:14

That was very irresponsible of your friend, Dry, I don't blame you for being annoyed.

Poor Mig, thank goodness someone found you.

I like the Shoescribe boots, Ruby.

Anni, that's scary. Hope you are over the shock. What pea coat do you like? I keep thinking about the Burberry (I'm obsessed!) but just spotted this Gant one which might be worth a try. Too boring or classic? Bear in mind I am boring.

Result on the top, QueenC.

Are you meeting up tomorrow? Have fun if so!

Where I live we have one of the highest rates of drink driving in the country, mainly because a lot of people live rurally and think it's ok to drive home pissed, or they can't get home on public transport. That, added to the rugby drinking culture, scare the living daylights out of me. I'm no prude, like a drink myself as you know too well. Only last week a member of the first rugby team was beaten up in town and fractured his skull. I thought girls were a worry.........sad

MarshaBrady Fri 04-Oct-13 18:57:02

Dry that is bad. They have a huge anti drink driving campaign in Aus. It's been around since the 90s, it's entrenched in my mind.

Decam next week!

Ruby yes me too, shoescribe.

Sympathy all round for poorly DC's and even a tiny bit for hungover ones. very very irresponsible of the friend in question dry, apart from anything else, what made them think that they were allowed to make the judgement call to buy someone elses DC alcohol!! I'd be livid tbh.

shopafrolic Fri 04-Oct-13 19:55:54

Anni that must have been so scary - I hope the egg is diminishing and that you have a quieter and less stressful evening
Dry I'd be furious. My own drinking 'career' started very young, but never because an adult encouraged it! Purely peers. That's awful...... sad
Decam I wish it was tomorrow!
Ruby shoescribe for me too
Novice how are things now? Better day? I hope you and DH resolve things soon and that he is listening. And I'm sorry that quotes aren't as they first appear - that's not on.

So the estate agents have done the housing details and hopefully I'll do final sign off tomorrow. Hard seeing my home on paper hmm. When it goes on RightMove do you all want a nose? grin

santamarianovella Fri 04-Oct-13 20:02:04

dry you have the right to be mad,i would be,he is still a minor.

mig had a similar experience in university,i got very sick and passed out,my friends found me on the floor with blood gushing out of my head,it really put me off alcohol.

decam i dont know,there is something not right with the gant coat,it looks very unflattering.

Decameron Fri 04-Oct-13 20:15:20

OK, it's got to be Burberry. I shall stop boring you all now!

Yes please, Shop, would love to see your house.

libertychick Fri 04-Oct-13 20:59:58

Oh Shop I love looking at other people's houses!! Definitely pm a link when it's up.

Exciting Decam - are you ordering it now???

noviceoftheday Fri 04-Oct-13 21:01:21

Thanks everyonethanks

Me too shop nosey . Does anyone also look at Houzz for house ideas ? As addictive as Pinterest , beware!!!!

MarshaBrady Fri 04-Oct-13 21:02:45

Decam good decision!

Shop yep throw a link on MNV pin. Be great to see it.

Annianni Fri 04-Oct-13 21:02:52

Of course we do Shop grin

Did you try the Carven coat Decam?

sad BIL has had another bleed on his brain. Waiting now to get him in with the consultant to decide what's going to be done now.

I'm about as unstylish as I've ever been tonight in DP's massive gym shorts, a vest top and my wonder woman dressing gown. Don't know what's up with me but I'm full of CBA attitude today

Annianni Fri 04-Oct-13 21:05:48

Forgot to vote on the boots Ruby, I love the leather with suede straps.

mignonette Fri 04-Oct-13 21:06:17

Dry I love Houzz for Deep South Porch porn.

Annianni Fri 04-Oct-13 21:06:41

Oh no One, so sorry. Hope he's ok.

Annianni Fri 04-Oct-13 21:07:45

I love Houzz too Dry.
I bored dh silly with pics from there when I was planning the bathroom.

libertychick Fri 04-Oct-13 21:10:19

Sorry to hear that one. Hope he sees the consultant soon.

Have had a quick look at Houzz and see hours of my life floating away!!

Annianni Fri 04-Oct-13 21:12:02

Decam, I've sent you the peacoat on Pin.
Don't want to link on here till I order it tomorrow.

noviceoftheday Fri 04-Oct-13 21:12:31

Oh One, so sorry thanks
