Hey girls
Quiet today on here - hope all are well.
Happy Hallowe'en. We are off to a goth wedding reception tonight!!!
Had a good time at my girls' night out last night. I bought something new to wear ... OMG, can't believe I'm saying this! A black jumpsuit! Must say, it looked great! Off the shoulder on one side, other side with sparkly bits on it. Very flash.
Bought some other new clothes yesterday too, about time the wardrobe had an update - all from Asda though, so I got 6 items for the price of about one really LOL
Well, been to a Xmas concert rehearsal with DC's music class this morning, then local castle for a runaround, and they had crafts there so did some sticking too.
DH is doing the pumpkin atm.
Probably see you all tomorrow - looking forward to a bit of a rest at some point in my life! This week is manic - getting ready for DS's birthday, his party, then two other nights out this week too ... and Bonfire ... Phew!

Evening all

EHM I am not staying in the hospital under any but the most dire circumstances after the horror that was last time. The consultant has agreed that he will do the op under a local (maybe sedation), so that I allowed out and he will revriew me at Guisb
I know that it is not the best option, but i
t is all I can manage right now and I have to have the extra breast tissue removed.

So DH will look after me at home.

wendy You go girl, catsuit and all


Wolf I like things as they are at the moment I think, just wish we had a little more money, but then doesnt evey one.

I have been sewing again hearts for the mini;s

Very wet and windy here! have a good day all.

Starbear Sun 01-Nov-09 10:39:29

Morning all Wolfcub Arrgh! must be the way your feeling. It does get better promise.
Thank for the thread and for the reminders quite useful.
TM Must read your blog later as I would like to make cloth hearts to put on presents this year using old buttons. (Ah! I bet thats jsut in my dreams!)
Only a quick pop-in to post a list very busy here today as I've done very little flying with work & Ds half term.

So today
load W/M
Fold dry clothes
get next load ready
Going to risks the cost of the dryer today raining cats & dogs here.

Thats the scores on the doors for today.

wendyhappysmile Sun 01-Nov-09 11:08:50

Morning all*
poor you, hope things improve
Star you are a busy bee today. We are tumble drying today too sad
scatty enjoy the day and DC free time!
EHM hope you found some trick or treaters. How is Ellie taking the move? My DS was very unsettled when we moved and his behaviour altered, he was just 3.

Well - goth wedding last night was great, so refreshing to see people getting married how they want to do it - and everyone having such fun! (I'm not a big wedding fan, btw. Sorry, wolf! Each to their own but personally they leave me cold!)
MIL was in talkative mood. Remember I said about DH's childhood friend having 3 weeks to live: well, the story is it's a neighbour of DH's parents. The street was like Ramsey Street when they were growing up, and MIL/FIL are best, very close friends with this family. So MIL looked after their children all the time. The friend is SIL's best friend from childhood - so she is devastated too. My MIL, bless her, doesn't do feelings (she has hugged me twice - on the birth of my second child, and when her mother died) and has never told DH she loves him, is proud of him etc etc. So to see her so visibly upset was awful. She doesn't cry, just you can tell she is upset because she has more compassion in her voice, ifyswim.
We are just up - children at my mum's!!! Better get cracking.
Sorry to put the day on a downer. I am trying to get a postive from it all and living life to the full. MIL said this to me last night - she told me to spend money, enjoy life, drink a lot and not waste my time on this earth!

evening all

it has been a bad day. I have been ill, dp has been out, ds has been in one of his moods and the dishwasher has leaked all over the kitchen. My efforts to fix dishwasher has so far failed and repeat floodings have occurred.

tea will be sending many positive vibes your way tomorrow. Here's hoping for a successful result and a rapid recovery. hugs

wendyhappysmile Sun 01-Nov-09 19:13:36

Mad Thinking of you for tomorrow.
Had a mad mad day again - FIL has fitted a shelf in the kitchen but the second one was the wrong colour. Had yummy pumpkin soup for tea though and homemade bread rolls. Just making parsnip and butternut squash bake for tomorrow's tea. Determined to be more organised this week!
See you all tomorrow
