yoo hoo - over here- bring the trolley...

topsyturner Fri 26-Apr-13 16:28:54

Nice title Mas !
<lurches in dragging trolley>

Spooky am on the train and the refreshment trolley just by me as I clicked open to find our virtual one.. Escaped from conference and even managed a crafty bit of manoeuvring to avoid boring man who told me excitedly at lunch that would could share the train journey all the way home.

Hope everyone's okay. Gig's have we started digging your escape tunnel yet??

MaryAnnSingleton Fri 26-Apr-13 16:57:05

oh well done smee !

Gigondas Fri 26-Apr-13 17:01:06

Wrestles trolley off topsy- I have the ' roid hunger like you wouldn't believe.

Escape plan for Sunday am- pain is apparently muscular so Ice pack, exercise and drugs. Surgeon happy as is dr lovely but we are leaving it so have extra day post surgery so he can be sure on right pain meds.

Sometimes enjoy your weekend (and amber).

Copthall- step away from the capris as you cannot waste the good weather til I am home.

back to reading battle hymn of the tiger mother to give me ideas for big gig wink. It's actually a very funny read - I am definitely soft touch rat mother tho grin.

KurriKurri Fri 26-Apr-13 17:16:22

Hi all,
Gigs - sorry you have been sore and a bit down, hopefully the pain will ease soon and the drugs are good'uns. Hooray for getting out on Sunday though.
There was new drama started on BBC2 last night called the Politicians Husband - it's not too bad (has David Tennant and Emily Watson in it), in case you are in need of something to watch on catch up smile

Smee well done on avoiding boring man - that was a lucky escape.

MAS - glad BCN meet up went well smile

Sometimes - have a fab weekend (grin at DD's indignation) - who is starring in the Hamlet? (I love Hamlet, it is my favourite play, and one of the first productions DS was in when he was working profesionally (i.e. when he was actor boy, not prison man grin) - he wasn't Hamlet I hasten to add, he was um <thinks>. - Laertes or something + a couple of people who aren't on at the same time as Laertes grin

I went out to a lunch today - still feel pretty tired and shaky but I'd pre paid for it so I went. I had spinach falafels on baba ganoush for my main which was v.nice, and then marmalade bread and butter pudding for afters.I feel very very full!

Waving to all - catching up with your posts on other thread, loving the new thread title MAS grin

Gigondas Fri 26-Apr-13 17:37:50

I was too smashed tired to watch it but it looked good kurri so will check it out. Glad you made lunch but sorry you are still under the weather.

jchocchip Fri 26-Apr-13 17:49:06

Love the new thread title <marks place> coconut cakes for fbs trolley ...

Copthallresident Fri 26-Apr-13 20:05:48

Mas great title . I was going to suggest Race For Life The Bar but I think your title does full justice grin Lets hope this is the thread where we organise our piss up get together to celebrate gigs recovery. Just say the word gigs and we'll get cracking and order the gin grin

I couldn't be arsed with the Capris so will wait until you are home. In any case they are in the wardrobe with all the post chemo size 8s that I leave there just in case so have to mentally prepare to pass over the 8s 10s and 12s before I can find the ones that now fit sad

KK spinach falafels on baba ganoush smile

Little Copt bought boy home to make chocolate cake together wink It is in shape of a ravaged moustache and covered in marshmellow and sugar. I'll leave it on the trolley in case someone is desperate Big Copt called me on facetime and demanded I go into kitchen and show boy to her so she could be as annoying as Little Copt used to be when she bought boys home. I refused on the grounds I would appear demented and she commented that it wouldn't make any difference as all her boyfriends thought I was demented anyway hmm

sandripples Fri 26-Apr-13 20:29:26

Hello, what an excellent thread title- well done MAS!
I'm sorry I'm out of date with everyone's news, but I hope KK and Gigs are feeling better as you have had some troubles if I recall rightly from my skim last time.
Hope MAS also managing ok on the chemo.

Have just been tired due to succession of grotty viruses, plus work, and DH's elderly aunt now sadly extremely ill - DH is at her bedside this week and w/e. Its distressing for all and I hope she doesn't linger too long as we're at the stage of wishing for her sake that it could end peacefully now. (Sorry about this sad note - she is in her 80s and has always been a feisty lady but over the last few years has gone downhill a lot.)

I do hope you all have a nice w/e and that aches and pains will stay away. Has anyone venrtured into the garden yet- everything is so behind this year.

I enjoyed that new drama with David T as well.

Have to go and watch Masterchef then pick up DS - he's returning from girlfriend's then back to uni tomorrow. WE've been doing a few Masterchef recipes in the hols!

MaryAnnSingleton Fri 26-Apr-13 20:30:03

have had 3 glasses of wine chez going to watch Masterchef...

Gigondas Fri 26-Apr-13 20:40:12

I made a list of things I am going to do when get out -ranging from small ( shower, make tea etc) to bigger ( trip to Hong Kong to buy large jade necklace to hide scar ) but getting drink up fixed high on list.

Right arm good and left arm improving so have core skills needed.

gringrin At big Copt cheek.
Sr- lovely to hear from you but sorry about lurgies and dh aunt.

Mas-drinks and master chef probably needed.

Hnd and topsy-you two on the lash?

I am on greys anatomy splurge -friend got me into it. I know it's medical but it is also easy brainless viewing .

topsyturner Fri 26-Apr-13 20:43:19

Evening All

I am briefly home with DD and her sleepover guest whilst DH does the Dads Taxi run to pick up DS up from the cinema (iron man 3)

As soon as he gets back , I'm bobbing back to HNDs for wine , spicey chicken wings (she makes the best ones EVER) and olives .
I'm leaving DH to entertain the sleepover girls gringringrin

I went back to bed this afternoon and slept for 3 hours !
I was getting progressively grumpier and snappier as the day wore on , so thought it best to get myself out if the way for a while .

<clinks beer bottle with Mas wine glass , peers at Gigs supper tray "not impressed" , sulks as Smee didn't bring us back anything nice from her piss up conference>

topsyturner Fri 26-Apr-13 20:45:42

I luffs Greys Anatomy too Gigs
It's lovely and mindless , even when it's meant to be a "serious ishoo"

Gigondas Fri 26-Apr-13 20:50:46

That is exactly why I like it and some of drs easy on eye

Drooling about hnd chicken - was fish here but doesn't fill the steroid sized void. I may have to have more doughnuts.

notJenkins Fri 26-Apr-13 21:00:53

Just checking in. I have been busy keeping the house tidy for pesky viewings.

Back soon.

AshokanFarewell Fri 26-Apr-13 21:08:45

Ooh I love Grey's Anatomy, although I only started watching properly from season 5 or 6. I was catching up on all the previous seasons but then LoveFilm instant stopped showing them sad shall perhaps treat myself to the boxsets. It's lovely and Dr Shepherd is scrummy! grin

gigs glad your arm is getting better, the list sounds fun. I have a list for when my pouch has calmed down. We are going to have a massive Indian takeaway and order alllll the dishes I like! grin

MAS great title and thanks for he new thread

KK lunch sounds very yummy, glad you made it smile

smee good job you escaped dull man!

topsy and HND enjoy your evening!

sandripples we reached that stage with my nana too, thankfully she passed away quite peacefully after catching pneumonia/chest infection. I hope DH's aunt is comfortable and best wishes to you all, it's a horrid situation.

cop cake sounds fun, and ooooooh a boy! wink

Homebase was fun - new duvet cover, watering can, gardening gloves, seeds and all sorts. Also went to the pet shop but wasn't allowed to bring any new bunnies home sad

I've applied for halls for uni next year! I'm very excited already, I sent them a long list of all my medical issues so hopefully I will get an ensuite room and close to my course building smile I was previously planning to live with now ex, and all my friends will have graduated so decided halls less risky than finding a houseshare with strangers! Plus hopefully an ensuite, very swish.

KurriKurri Fri 26-Apr-13 21:20:43

Ooh Asho Halls application is very exciting - something great to look forward to smile
Good haul from Homebase by the sound of it too smile

I am also watching masterchef, I think Larkin is for the chop.

NedSchneebly Fri 26-Apr-13 21:36:34

Marking place on the new thread - excellent title MAS!!

Knackered today - crazy few days at school - done painting, singing, planting cress seeds and writing a new version of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Year 1 have had a productive week!

Feeling a bit stressed about check up on May 9th, joint clinic with oncy and surgeon. What will it involve if I am not having a mammo? Just a poke and a prod and a chat? My oncy is a man of very few words so might be a fairly brief appointment. . .

Hope you doing ok gig ? What news this evening? Sending you huge hugs x x

kurri you feeling better? Thinking of you love x

When NJ and I met this week we were discussing arranging a meet up in London Town - my DH works for big national brewery and happy to help organise with a venue somewhere if we want? Definitely keen to meet up with lots of you if we can organise it!

NJ what house news? Any takers for your place? Got everything crossed for you x x

SR lovely to see you! sorry to hear about DHs aunt though. Hope she is comfortable.

sometimes I love Hamlet - hope you managed to stay awake! Have lovely weekend x x x

kurri you ok this evening? Glad you got out for lunch - marmalade bread and butter pud sounds amazing! Hope you are relaxing on the sofa digesting x x x

ashokan I am sure that uni will give you a halls place. Good idea, I'd say. How exciting! X x

smee you home safely? Useful and productive conference?

MAS how's things with you? All good I hope x x

Loads of Friday night love to you all x x x x x x

NedSchneebly Fri 26-Apr-13 21:38:06

* kurri* seem to have posted to you twice there blush count it as double love x x

Copthallresident Fri 26-Apr-13 21:41:04

Ash Halls application very exciting. Big Copt's friend has dyspraxia and epilepsy and so has had same room in a flat that is in sightline of lecture halls and overlooks her route for all three years and she has had a ball with three sets of flatmates. It is always a bit hit and miss but each year she seems to have had a better gang. Strange, but my first halls flatmates have been my closest and lifelong friends, and Big Copt also completely bonded with hers, I thought I was lucky but it does seem to happen....... Ensuite though smile I had a shared sink and frequently found sharee's numerous boyfriend's peeing in it shock

Gigondas Fri 26-Apr-13 21:41:39

Hugs ned and hands her wine-am doing ok.

Your dh sounds like could be most helpful ned. And sounds like busy week at school too but you seem to be getting back into it.

I would think joint session with onc and surg good as covers all bases. That week is going to be busy as its topsy scan and my lovely cousin(5 yrs on and still going) daughter having her kidney cyst scanned so will be on the box with lots of candles.

Good for you about halls ash-very exciting .

Flicks back to greys -am only on series 1

amberlight Fri 26-Apr-13 22:16:01

Marking my place...

topsyturner Fri 26-Apr-13 23:12:58

Hi Ned , my CT is that date too !
I shall hold your hand for your apt .

How's your evening going Gigs ?
I am home from HNDs
Am making myself a fish finger sandwich .
I am scum , I know grin

Later Lovelies x

PS - if a date is set for a London meet up , I will do my damnedest to hope on a plane and join you all !

AshokanFarewell Fri 26-Apr-13 23:16:47

Ooh those activities sound fab ned but not surprised you're tired out! Hopefully the appointment will be useful whatever it involves.

cop eww at sink peeing! It seems so common, apparently some girls even do it - quite a feat! And lovely you both bonded with our flat mates. Mine was full of drama llamas and all ended rather badly! I wasn't really involved but of course everyone got dragged in. Hopefully I'll be with other non-first years this time so less pressured I expect smile

gigs the early series are probably the best. Have you seen Private Practice? It's a spin off of Grey's. I quite enjoyed it but the cast is smaller and almost everyone slept with everyone else, and there were so many disasters it got a bit ridiculous.

amber I hope you're having a fabulous weekend!

I'm in bed now under my gorgeous new duvet cover, my mum washed it and snuck upstairs to change it so I could use it straight away! smile I've still got lots of boxes to unpack and piles of stuff to sort out but my new room is starting to feel more homely.
