going to see SILs new flat
She is v excited
but it has no outside
and she said she is cooking frickin STEW (in this weather, I ask you) because tehn she won't have to do anything while people are there

You can't not go at this late stage

CountessDracula Sat 04-Aug-07 18:46:01

oh I know that
but I can NOT WANT to go
(and not tell anyone, just a secret want)

Ah bless her - the thing is it's been such a nightmare knowing what the weather is going to do though!

All week the forecast has been changing for tomorrow (am having BBQ) and even yesterday half the forecasters said rain and half said sun.

You gotta go!

foxinsocks Sat 04-Aug-07 18:49:23

WendyWeber Sat 04-Aug-07 18:51:36

Ohhh, that's why you said NO STEW to harpsi with such feeling!

(If it makes you feel any better - which it won't - it has been raining here all day a nice stew would be lovely )

forsale Sat 04-Aug-07 18:51:54

CountessDracula Sat 04-Aug-07 18:51:59

oh err no sorry I can't drink in that case

oh no I have explosive and horribly contagious farting syndrome, no one would want me with that would they <pffffffft>

foxinsocks Sat 04-Aug-07 18:52:03

yes, you could have come here and we could have sat outside and put the world to rights and then you'd be feeling much better. But NO. You had to go home and sulk.

CountessDracula Sat 04-Aug-07 18:52:42
