...who has just come upstairs to apologize for accidently eating all the pack of crisps with his brother!!

he has his appetite back finally after his teeth op the other day, and there was a huge bag of prawn skip-type crisps.......he asked to have some.

they scoffed the lot (yeah yeah, bad mummy alert for not taking noticeblushwink), and now he reckons it was an accident.

yeah righthmm.........he really thinks I believe that??

was not born yesterday lad!

Have you never started eating a big bag of something and then suddenly realised that it's all gone?

GhostOfPsychomum5 Sun 28-Jun-09 11:17:10

me, <<looks about for DH to jump in and say I am lying>>...............nah, not virtuous me!!!

It's funny how they think they've givena reasonable excuse isn't it? I remember the things I used to say, no wonder my mum didn't believe me - I thought she had magic powers!

Pringles blush. You really can't stop once you've popped!

GhostOfPsychomum5 Sun 28-Jun-09 11:21:30

songbird, I DO have magic powers......I can make hurts go away with my singing....

<<nothing to do with how bad I am that they say they are better just to get away form me of coursewink>>

TrillianAstrahasaJOB Sun 28-Jun-09 11:29:26

Good that he wants to eat things again though!

GhostOfPsychomum5 Sun 28-Jun-09 11:44:33

well, yes, you would think so..........still claiming 'real' food to be too hard thohmmangry<<argh>>

I think he has been injected with rocket fuel zooming about everywhere!!!

Actually I am with your DS on this one because I accidently ate all of DH's cheddar and red onion kettle crisps, twice! grin

When he is in bed later or at work tomorrow I plan on accidently eating the packet he thinks he has hidden out of my reach. grin

as above! Mrs Weasley i also opened some cheddar and red onion kettle chips - a big bag and before i knew it they'd gone....(very very bad for the diet) i see how that can happen! they are so yummy its impossible to stop.
i blame tesco for putting them in my home delivery without me having asked for them....

Hi-jack alert

Trillian, you have a job?? Well done! Tell me more!

TrillianAstrahasaJOB Sun 28-Jun-09 17:18:41

I'll be playing with spreadsheets and databases and stuff for a company who do the 'text us a question' thing. Seeing how advertising influences number of customers, whether speed of reply encourages people to text again, etc. Should be fun, the people in the office seem really nice. Starting in 3 weeks.

I have trillianAstra, those Sensations, sweet Thai chilli flavour, once i start them I can eat one of those big packs in a matter of minutes all to myself.

Poledra Sun 28-Jun-09 18:17:43

So quite different from your PhD then, Trillian?

TrillianAstrahasaJOB Sun 28-Jun-09 18:20:35

Eek, I am bolded.

I did a lot of messing about with excel trying to make data make sense in my PhD, so the ifference here is that someone gives me the information to play with, I don't have to spend hours looking down a microscope or sniffing a bowl of acetone in order to get the data. grin

Poledra Sun 28-Jun-09 18:27:02

'trying to make data make sense' = make it give me the answer I want grin

One of those PhD aphorisms which goes along with
'Hot glass looks exactly the same as cold glass'
'Figure 3 shows a typical trace' = I hunted through 3 years of work to find the best one

Congratulations to you smile

I'm back to work on 15th July sad

Sorry for continuing to hi-jack your thread, Psycho

TrillianAstrahasaJOB Sun 28-Jun-09 18:28:56

= make it make pretty graphs too!

You'll be back at work before I start in that case!

TrillianAstrahasaJOB Mon 29-Jun-09 10:00:07

What are you going back to Poledra? How long have you been away? Is it something you can get dtraight back into or will you have loads of catching up to do?

Poledra Mon 29-Jun-09 11:09:10

I am <ahem> a Clinical Scientist, Trillian. I'll go back to find out what projects I have been assigned to, then have to do shitloads of reading to find ou what's happened to the projects since I've been away (if they were something I was involved in before) or to find out anything about them (if they're new).

I'm going on hols a month after I get back - reckon I can manage to coast a little till after that grin. Am facing up to no more maternity leaves, ever - will be a part of the workforce till retirement now shock

GhostOfPsychomum5 Mon 29-Jun-09 11:13:49
