Of course goat, there are chocolate chip cookie dough pop tarts (delish!), and peanut butter, dark chocolate and white fudge covered pretzels! What would you like? smile Are you ok?

Hello everyone waves

Marking my place, just in case. Thanks tea how was laat night?

clums I have a baby bjorn & Minipop's loves it, we also had a caboo but I think he got a bit big for it.

Virtual hot chocolates for everyone, oh and I've found some chocolate digestives too smile

Susieloo Wed 24-Oct-12 18:47:19

I have peanut butter pretzels in my basket to order on Friday (pay day)grin

I made a goats cheese and spinach frittata a la Nigel slaters new programme, now for some reason I decide that I will like this even though I don't like omelettes and I have decided a frittata is basically a really deep omelette!! I saved half for dp's tea and he then announces he doesn't like 'funny cheese* because 'its not cheese* so picks it all off. Not sure I would make it again.

Had to bring bedtime forward again because he's so grouchy despite a three hour nap so just off for last feed before bedsmile

Have a good night everyonesmile

MiniPopsMum2012 Wed 24-Oct-12 18:54:16

susieloo we've had to bring bedtime forward tonight as Minipop's fell asleep on me at 6pm smile

HorridHeffalumpsWickedWoozles Wed 24-Oct-12 19:13:00

Ooh mrsn I need some peanut butter pretzels in my life right now! I went to the sweet shop in town to get some and it was closed sad

susie grin at "funny cheese", but that frittata sounds tasty to me.

Oh dear, less than 10 posts in and we're already on the food porn...

MrsNPattz Wed 24-Oct-12 19:16:06

small of course, help yourself! smile

Are there only a certain number of smileys when you use the phone version? I can't find the Halloween one!

Little fella has just fallen asleep on me so might be an early night for us if he falls asleep!

MrsNPattz Wed 24-Oct-12 19:17:00

Sorry, stays asleep as he has already fallen asleep blush

heff of course we are hehe yum yum

HorridHeffalumpsWickedWoozles Wed 24-Oct-12 19:34:37

I think you just type a h in front if the usual smiley, so [h smile] gives smile etc

Clumsasaurus Wed 24-Oct-12 20:55:01

Not a lover of funny cheese but I do love a frittata!

Babysaurus is angry tonight and crying his little heart out and we can't figure out why. To top it all no have bad cold which I think has settled on my chest so off to the dr's for me tomorrow sad

Really hoping it won't be a long night but I may well be here for a wee while...

MiniPopsMum2012 Wed 24-Oct-12 20:59:53

Oh no, poor babysaurus sad hope the night gets better and drs go ok tomorrow.

Susie Frittata sounds delicious.

Uh oh, just googled American Soda... smile

TeaandHobnobs Wed 24-Oct-12 20:59:54

Mmmm I really like the sound of that frittata! Silly susieloo's DP... My mum is making fajitas right now, yum yum yum.

Not a good night for DS - he was up every hour from 4. And apart from a nice 30 min sleep on the bus at 12ish, he has fought sleep a lot today. At least my mum managed to get him to nod off with a walk round the park while I was having my dental assessment (after he screamed the waiting room down for 5 minutes), and he had about another hour and a half on the way home, but despite him rubbing his eyes like mad, he will no go to bed yet. I tried for 45 mins then gave up - he's now feeding, so will probably try again in a minute. I just don't know what is upsetting him - if it is his teeth then the powders and gel just aren't cutting it at the moment.

And I'm all in a tizz (which can't be helping with DS) about my wisdom tooth extraction next Thursday, and the fact that the neonatal nurse told me I should be weaning DS now, even though I'm not convinced he is ready. In fact she said his extra waking last night shows he is hungry, and didn't believe it was teeth (I am almost certain it was teeth). Argh <pulls out hair>

(ooooo I've just put him down and he's asleep - score! grin)

TeaandHobnobs Wed 24-Oct-12 21:01:29

Ohhhh babysaurus! Hope he calms soon. And sorry to hear about your cold Clumsa, I hate having to look after a baby when feeling rough sad Fingers crossed the dr can help tomorrow.
