The Spring Chat part 2(1001 Posts)
Thanks sfx, hadn't even realised the other had filled up!
I only just noticed while seeking distraction from study, did not go running today so I could put in some solid study but not really going according to plan frankly I just want to make playlists on my ipod
anyway still managing to get some work done
hope everyone is well, sunny now but expect it will be raining when I go to pick up dd, it certainly rained lots when I dropped her off
Is it still spring? Better post lots to fill it up before summer then!
Some beast has eaten all the leaves of our cucumber. Do plants survive that?
slng - oh no, maybe it's survival will depend on what's eating it?
Sfx - yes, we too got caught up in that hideous shower at drop off, yuk
Need to re-do passport application again today, was going to do it now but someone has just worken up, d'oh. At last he's on the road to recovery. My neighbour just texted saying her boys have got it now, oops
HI all, just popping in briefly. Hope everyone is well. Busy here with more cakes. Just about recovered from Saturdays school fair. Only one more major event as chair of pta before I hand over to someone else!
DS is off nursery today. He woke up complaining of a sore neck (done the various checks for meningitis) but no ther symptoms, so I'm guessing he has pulled a muscle. He is bedded down on the sofa with regular doses of nurofen, and is quite miserable!
Just a brief hello, recovering from a hideous sickness bug, I haven't felt so ill in a long time. It was tricky looking after the dcs, thank goodness dh had the day off yesterday although he still wasn't feeling brilliant.
There is another Ocado offer today, £15 off if you order for delivery tomorrow.
Hope all ok, sorry for brevity, I have the school run shortly and as usual am trying to pack in too many things! Tilly/SFX will sort out sponsorship soon
pcW hope you can all take it easy it is so debilitating
and thank you kindly for offer to sponsor, my family say it is worth it just to see me in a pink T-shirt
our old postman does parcel delivery now and he spotted us on the road after trying to deliver a parcel at our place, he stopped and gave it to us very nice of him
only thing is it was one of dd's presents and she would not let it go and started opening spotting what was inside....now I have a ladybird running around
May I ask a favour. Could all of you with new names give me a heads up as to who you are/were, as I don't recognise half of you these days (RL is to blame I'm afraid).
CoV I'm still me!
sfx - I got a little pressie for dd but now am afraid it might seem a little tame ...
Glad you feel a little better. Sympathies you had to look after the LOs even when ill.
Wished dd got the cp. Wouldn't mind now as we have a nanny. [evil smile]
We've exchanged with both our buyer and vendor.
Wanted to keep it under wraps until we exchanged as I didn't want to jinx it. We're moving to a 2-bed terrace house in Northfields in 4 weeks. There's is sooooo much to do. Wish this had happened before I started working.
Mellow - am SO pleased for you. 4 weeks? Arghhhhh. Glad you were able to exchange on both properties.
Our offer got accepted today - finally! But we've yet to start the ball rolling re. solicitors/mortgage and I'm away next week (at the caravan so not too bad).
sfx - dd sounds adorable in her outfit. My dd2 used to like ladybirds (better red than pink I say).
pcw - how awful for you, I do hope you are feeling better - nothing worse than having to deal with LOs when ill, poor you. Has dh had it yet?
COV - I'm still the same!
Mrs R - dh has had it. I'm still not very well, not managing to eat. Oh well. Excited to hear all the house news! Mellow - that's great - quick, too! And - Northfields! Another change of location - you are just like me Am sure you can't wait. Mrs R, it'll be you next.
good morning all
mellow congratulations great news hope the mve goes smoothly
slng she is my one and only it is my prerogative to indulge almost as much fun for me as it is for her
pcW fingers crossed for a speedy recovery
dd at nursery, am on top of study do am off for a run now
btw Tilly did you watch Dollhouse?
I'm still me as well COV but on MN less as working harder
Am trying to work but very bored.
sfx - indulging kids very underrated. Must make it top priority today ...
Cov - tis still me!
Mellow - fanatstic news about exchange Hope move goes smoothly, you'll be in your new place in no time
PCW - oh no, you're ill too Hope you can rest as much as is possible
Sfx - i bet dd was well excited with red pressie!
My art class starts tonight, I'm so
Paddle alerted me to this - think everyone local should be aware.
** Police in hunt for serial rapist **
Police are hunting a rapist suspected to be responsible for four attacks across
south-west London since February.
SJ, you'll be going crazy on the canvas tonight following your two week confinement! Let it all hang out!
Feeling slightly better here, just sipping lucozade. And have managed to cook a ratatouille for tea without feeling too ill
I just saw that story on the bbc site weirdly I know Inwood road quite well, used to live near there, hope they catch him soon
picked up dd from nursery and went to Starbucks had lovely sit down chatting and looking at magazines then had a browse on lovely new 'shoe station' shop and walked home
the only not so great thing was that dd had her second wee on the way home
mummy mummy it is coming now followed by slight spread leg squat and hey presto!
lordy lordy - had an email from my father which verges on the half way normal and expressing regret at how he handled things after he left my mum Thats a first! I detect the hand of my brother in the email... sounds far too "normal" to be 100% my father.
how do you feel about it? is he well? worried about your health?
oh its a long story - we had an exchange of emails a month or so ago where I let blast with both barrels and pointed out some of his atrocious behaviour. HIs resposnse was slightly petulant to say the least - "I didn't want to deal with recriminations", no shit well who would after 12 years of behaving like a wanker.
This email completely differnt in tone - actually asked how I was (which is a first in 12 years) wanted to know when Daniels birthday was (says something that he doesn;t know) and if he could have some photos of Daniel and I.
Am torn between feeling theres a possibility of at the very least a civilised exchange and occasional meet and feeling that he hasn't managed to sustain that much with any of his other childrne or grandchildren. So, sceptical I guess.
