And I want to moan. I'm sitting here with a shitty cold and feeling distinctly miserable.

ds is watching crappy Derren whatsisname which is boring and dd is asleep.

What happened to my life?

Maryz you're gorgeous and your typing has a lovely Irish lilt! Happy birthday and enjoy the booze grin

Why would being as old as you make us understand yoda?

flow4 Fri 16-Nov-12 22:08:19

Speak like Yoda after 47 we do. grin

MaryZezItsOnlyJustNovember Fri 16-Nov-12 22:08:25

Thanks, Beardy.

flow, how old are you? Because you are becoming very wise indeed.

flow4 Fri 16-Nov-12 22:09:11

(I identify with Yoda. I think it's the wrinkles)

Happy Birthday thanks wine

In a few years time I will be 50 but both my DCs will have left home by then so I will spend it totally alone.

Wine must be the way to go...oh, and chocolate - why is there no emoticon for chocolate?

WeAreSix Fri 16-Nov-12 22:10:30

Happy birthday!! wine thanks

flow4 Fri 16-Nov-12 22:11:40

Hahahaha, bless you and thank you. But I dunno about that: I make it up as I go along... Or listen to you... smile

I'm 47.
A nothing age.
A prime number, though I'm no longer in my prime. Or maybe not yet.

Teahouse, ds2 has just presented me with the biggest bar of Galaxy I have ever seen shock.

He is helping me eat it.

Nearly there, flow. Another three years and you will have made it.

Thanks WeAreSix <slugs more wine>

FunnysInLaJardin Fri 16-Nov-12 22:17:17

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MaryZ, although I should be wary of you as a Scorpio. Most enigmatic with a nasty sting so I understand.

50 is the new 30 btw thanks and wine

bigheartedwoman Fri 16-Nov-12 22:18:23

47 is nothing!
My nana always said to me "Big, never think you're old when you're young"
I looked at her like hmm
I understand that now! grin

She was the Lady of Dundalk! xx

flow4 Fri 16-Nov-12 22:18:39

Tell DS2 to bugger off buy us ALL chocolate buy TWO bars next time! grin

Does Galaxy go well dunked in wine?!

flow4 Fri 16-Nov-12 22:20:53

Funnys, never listen to horoscopes: they're no match for Scorpios nonsense grin

And be careful what you say: there are a few of us Scorpios round here! > mwahahahahaha <

bigheartedwoman Fri 16-Nov-12 22:21:05

Feck off flow how very dare you??
Kitkats are better! grin

flow4 Fri 16-Nov-12 22:22:15

Hmmmmm... Kitkats... Yes, I can see their absorbent powers may be better...

What about FLAKES and wine?! grin

Trills Fri 16-Nov-12 22:22:29

Are you being unreasonable?

Why, do you think telling us that it's your birthday is a question of reasonableness?

Actually you probably shouldn't tell people online your birthday, they could use it in dangerous ways.

<serious face>

Littleblue Fri 16-Nov-12 22:24:27

Happy birthday !!! wine

bigheartedwoman Fri 16-Nov-12 22:26:03

flow now theres an idea for tomorrow night!
Great stuff! grin

MrsTerryPratchett Fri 16-Nov-12 22:29:52

I'm 40 today!!! Not wine o'clock here yet (overseas) but I will be joining you in about 3 hours. wine

CouthyMowEatingBraiiiiinz Fri 16-Nov-12 22:29:53

Happy birthday MaryZ. You are only as old as the man you feel. grin

Or wish to feel...

flow4 Fri 16-Nov-12 22:30:25

I have had to give up wine. It has been making me ill. sad sad

There is an alcohol-shaped hole in my soul...

CouthyMowEatingBraiiiiinz Fri 16-Nov-12 22:30:50

And YABU to feel old. Blows raspberry at Trills. 50 isn't old.

Trills Fri 16-Nov-12 22:31:10

If it is your birthday does that mean you will be embracing Christmas fro tomorrow?

flow4 Fri 16-Nov-12 22:32:23

>looks very stern<

MaryZezItsOnlyJustNovember Fri 16-Nov-12 22:33:38

'Tis ok Trills, I absolutely accept that I'm being totally unreasonable, on may levels.

I may have to get mnhq to delete this thread so the next time I'm pissed off i can pretend it's my birthday and have all sorts of people be nice to me

Us Scorpios rule da world grin.

And yes, Galaxy is very good with wine. Much better than flake, as all the little bits don't fall in.
