Next meet up, Tuesday 4th September.
During the day, either Botanic Gardens in Durham or the Slug and Fiddle near the Gala Theatre in Durham City centre.

Now for some random chat.
DS sang a song about bolognaise today. And DD walked some more. But still prefers crawling and using my nipples as handholds on Mount Starbuck.

Blimey spiggy!!

Viking, her surname begins with W and she lives near BA, is it the same lady? BTW are you coming to Adventure Point on Wed 6th? Hope so.

goldenretriever Sun 03-Mar-13 16:32:53

Ooh SPB, sounds interesting, will bear that in mind.

Indith, 3 weeks??!!! Eeek. Thanks for letting me know about the body balance classes. I like to go to the first release, so I look slightly less like a right eejit. Will PM u nearer the time if ok.

Lileth I will PM u about the ASD thing please. It is more that there are 6 agencies involved so gets a bit of a head spinner. When we met up for curry in December, I was in a bit of a state if shock (like when Bishop Brennan got kicked up the arse in Father Ted) as the only hideous thing about his learning difficulties had happened. I had been asked to come in early before his Christmas concert to get him dressed. I was then asked to sit on a chair by the side of the stage with him with a piece of fucking tinsel to entertain him while all the other kids performed and pranced past us. Talk about a learning curve.

On a positive note, had a good day with the offspring at Herrington Park, quite impressed with it.

I have replied golden. My DS has often had things to entertain himself while in school assemblies. He also has had a TA since he went into year 1 to help him not distract the rest of the school. I also went along with swimming so I could help him get changed. Hope it doesn't take too long. Im going to send you a second PM as Ive just thought of something else.

<wonders what SPB does>

What is the appropriate response to a man who has been off playing Halo and board games all weekend with his mtea and is napping on thesofa within an hour of getting home, after eating the dinner I made him, saying 'but I'm tired Leggy. Just 5minutes...' ?

Seriously ... How should one respond?!

SPBInDisguise Sun 03-Mar-13 19:22:10

Do you have a screaming child handy? grin
Golden, sorry you're going through so much difficulty, I have no advice but sympathy
Bedtime cannot come quick enough today. Have been counting down the hours!

Indith Sun 03-Mar-13 20:36:06

how bad is it when the nurses on treetops start to recognise you? ds has scored some drugs. rattle cough scream. at least they let us home. probably because he kept screaming. the whole ward was probably happy to see the back of us.

spiffysquiffyspiggy Sun 03-Mar-13 20:46:38

Oh pants. Just in time for his birthday as well. How the drugs do the trick.

spiffysquiffyspiggy Sun 03-Mar-13 20:47:16

Hope the drugs do the trick. Stoopid phone

SPBInDisguise Sun 03-Mar-13 20:54:15

KaraStarbuckThrace Sun 03-Mar-13 22:06:08

Indith, poor boy hope he gets better soon!

Leggy, kick him in the nuts!

VikingLady Sun 03-Mar-13 22:47:48

Is anyone having a good time?! My sympathies to everyone!

Kara That's her! And yes, I'm coming on Wednesday. Went to our first ever soft play today so we'll see how Adventure Point compares. Looking forward to meeting up again.

Aworryingtrend Tue 05-Mar-13 09:29:03

Hello! count me in for tomorrow as well. DS (5 months) and I will be there. How will we all recognise one another? Not sure I have any red carnation button holes lying around the house. ..wink

LillethTheCat Tue 05-Mar-13 11:18:58

I was about to ask the same Questoin worrying Are we meeting in a particular area? Or do we need some sort of sign?

Looking forward to soft play tomorrow morning.

KaraStarbuckThrace Tue 05-Mar-13 14:50:22

I will wait in reception, should be there by 10am. I will put DD in my Madame Googoo baby carrier so I will be easy to spot grin
Looking forward to seeing you all smile

KaraStarbuckThrace Tue 05-Mar-13 22:45:59

Adventure point was fun! DD fell asleep 5mins after we set off, she is still asleep in the car!

Viking - do you have a link to where you got those free eat well vouchers? Had a quick google but no joy!
