It's enough to reduce a grown woman to tears ...

Thanks Rhinestone! I'm not usually this bad but, yes, the weather isn't helping at all. I just want to stay in bed most days. sad

Can anyone help? Should our schools amalgamate?

MmeGuillotine Tue 29-Jan-13 14:14:50

FiveHours We have pretty much the exact same situation going on at our infants/junior school and it looks like they'll be amalgamated from September onwards. I'm presuming it's all gone ahead as we've just had a letter home telling us that both schools are getting a completely new uniform, which is a PITA for those of us who were planning to hand old jumpers down. ;)

Um, anyway, I shall watch your post with interest as I have no idea what to make of the whole thing! I don't know if we're supposed to be pleased or not!

This may not be the most original thing to post on around here, but hey...
A huge rant on why the major newspapers are ganging up to attack mothers this week

sloppy, ill-informed journalism makes me mad. Hulk SMASH.

And hugs to MmeG...sorry to hear you're not great.

Instead, I was stuck - Augustus Gloop style - up the slide at Ankle Biters Playcentre, being de-wedged by a caterpillar mascot that looked like a giant purple penis, to the sound of small children singing the theme tune to The Teletubbies.

Something had to give. It did. The arse on my reinforced pregnancy jeans. During the walk of shame back to the high chaired seating area.

I've been blowing my head off & having a good root around (for the sake of a 'new' handbag)

Do we see ourselves as other people see us? No!

This week we couldn't resist making fishy cheese pods into a fishy collage.

A weirdly well timed post this one - Why as a writer I always ask myself WHAT WOULD HILARY MANTEL DO? before doing anything professional.

Craftsonsea Wed 30-Jan-13 11:44:57

Thank you RecipeJunkie before I wrote the post my thought was "I would really like someone to say you've hit the nail on the head"! I don't think I quite managed it, but I'm happy enough smile Also sending some love towards MmeG and if that doesn't help some wine and thanks

PetiteRaleuse Wed 30-Jan-13 12:32:43

I've written about my five favourite classic books

Do you agree?

I've got plans but I need the weather to be a bit more appropriate for January in Canada

cjfriess Wed 30-Jan-13 19:12:02

I have found an alphabet picture book that I like but I am looking for others. It would be great if you could add your recommendations to Story Snug too smile

My afternoon. In a limerick. With apologies to Edward Lear. #sendgin

I got married last year with our six kids as my entourage. (!) It was a lovely day but not without the odd hiccup. I would love to hear about anyone else's wedding day . The good ,the bad and the ugly all welcome smile
