Thought I would start a new thread as the old one is getting full.

Next meet up is on Wednesday 10th April, 10ish at the Durham Botanical Gardens. We will either be in the entrance or staking a couple of the picnic tables by the pond.
I will be giving Vikinglady a lift.

Oh you poor thing Viking, I hope you feel better soon.

I'm sure something is happening cycle wise, feels like it anyway. I'm sure I'm going to feel a splodge half way through a lecture and end up with a teenage moment.

Kids have been dispatched. Breakfast and shower in order for me then hit the books. If you see me on here then yell at me!

StealthPolarBear Thu 11-Apr-13 07:43:01

Oh no Viking, hope you're better soon

ArrowofApollo Thu 11-Apr-13 15:22:51

Viking, sorry to hear you have been poorly!
We're all okay, and if it is a D&V bug I guess we will know if we have it fairly soon? I hope so as we went swimming this morning.

VikingLady Thu 11-Apr-13 18:40:26

They're usually pretty quick, aren't they? I am currently in a brief vertical phase - spent most of this afternoon napping on the floor with no top on so V could help herself.....

VikingLady Thu 11-Apr-13 18:40:53

Indith thank you for the baby clothes - the boots are fab!

spiffysquiffyspiggy Thu 11-Apr-13 21:22:19

Hope you and j are feeling better Viking. Looks like it is something going round work- a few people looking dodgy today.

ArrowofApollo Fri 12-Apr-13 07:52:22

Funniliy enough there was a discussion on the MID FB group about D&V going around Durham!

Ds2 is a contrary little thing. can't think where he gets that from every day without fail he wakes up at 6.30 ish demanding boob. Today as I am leaving for my first overnight stay for 2 years, he sleeps in hmm so I have to leave without one last feed. He won't be bothered but I am! I got that job I went for, it's my first day and I feel like I'm starting off on the back foot. <pathetic>

(Viking, I don't think it's been announced officially yet so ask J not to say owt, although I suspect a few people have guessed already)

spiffysquiffyspiggy Tue 16-Apr-13 08:33:48

Still at least the little blighter will be pleased to see my boobs me when I get back. grin

Indith Tue 16-Apr-13 17:42:48

hope you've had a good day, enjoy your night even the bed size isn't up to much!

spiffysquiffyspiggy Tue 16-Apr-13 17:55:43

Off to the pub in a couple of mins with my little pal from Glasgow grin . I could get used to this...

ArrowofApollo Tue 16-Apr-13 21:10:51

Spiggy that is great news, congratulations :D

StealthOfficialCrispTester Tue 16-Apr-13 21:15:04

Well done! Is it at the same company?

spiffysquiffyspiggy Tue 16-Apr-13 23:06:39

Might have got carried away. There's not much point in saving alcohol filled bm is there?

it's the same organisation, just a 3 month temporary promotion. I get to come back to London next week and go out againgrin luckily they couldn't pick between me and my friend who I thought would get the job so offered us a job share. Which is good cos he actually knows what the hell we're meant to be doing. grin

VikingLady Wed 17-Apr-13 08:21:51

Congratulations! J has been told not to gossip about it.

VikingLady Mon 22-Apr-13 07:57:03
