As above. It's late, and I'm too tired to be clever or witty. (Business as usual then hmm )

If anyone needs me I'll be in the hayloft with Athos grin

Badders123 Sat 01-Oct-16 13:46:02

SisterHelenoftheEternalCatchUp Sat 01-Oct-16 19:51:04

I have had too much tea and I'm feeling v. tubby...

After today's shopping trip, I now have Series 3 on DVD! This means I can watch whenever I want on the latop without DH complaining about being kicked off the TV. Hurrah! I did not buy or see any Xmas stuff <side-eyes Badders>

Homework hell is currently suspended for Horrible Histories grin

FancyFancy Sat 01-Oct-16 20:06:03

watching coding ? helen shock Could anything be more tedious?

Hope you're feeling a bit better now letus

Nice finishing off of the old thread ww - are you drunk now? wink

SisterHelenoftheEternalCatchUp Sat 01-Oct-16 20:13:45

Football, Fancy - football is more tedious. I was slightly confused at being asked to help solve problems and show him how to do stuff. Like I had a clue. But I sorted it, so go me grin #TechnoSkillzWench

WickedWenchOfTheNorth Sat 01-Oct-16 20:19:30

Yep Fancy grin

Badders123 Sat 01-Oct-16 20:20:37

Of course wicked! 😘

WickedWenchOfTheNorth Sat 01-Oct-16 20:25:20

Been to mum's, checking out my new digs. I want to start packing now! smile

FancyFancy Sat 01-Oct-16 20:25:35

wine cheers ww - might crack open some Pimms myself smile

<is in awe of helen's techy skillz>

WickedWenchOfTheNorth Sat 01-Oct-16 20:31:16

Mmm Pimms smile

LetUsPrey Sat 01-Oct-16 20:50:25

Evening wenches.

Feeling a bit better now thanks wenches.

I'll have a virtual wine, not quite ready for a real one grin

Watched Strictly. Goes on a bit at this stage though.

Hope your move happens smoothly and quickly Wicked.

ignores DC's homework

WickedWenchOfTheNorth Sat 01-Oct-16 20:54:05

Thanks Letus. Glad you're feeling better smile

FancyFancy Sat 01-Oct-16 20:54:45

Ah that's good to hear letus, and you should totally ignore homework until feeling better. Or better still, delegate it grin

Right, I need to attack the ironing pile. Which means two things - time to crack open the Pimms and then decide on which hot man shall keep me entertained whilst I do it. Shall I watch Suits (Harvey Specter), Justified (sniper Tim & Raylan) or Ripper Street (Dr Dirty)? A thoroughly enjoyable dilemma grin

LetUsPrey Sat 01-Oct-16 21:14:50

I'm back on Gibbs ... I mean NICIS grin

Badders123 Sat 01-Oct-16 21:15:57

Oh captain Jackson every day for me......💞

FancyFancy Sat 01-Oct-16 21:39:55

<harrumphs> DS drank the lemonade I had chilling in teh fridge, so Pimms is a no go angry. Vodka & tonic it is then. And Harvey Specter, you can have the doctor tonight badders grin

Ooh letus - I was channel flicking while eating dinner & saw NCIS. I had no idea what was going on as I'd missed quite a bit of the beginning, but there was a bit of gun wielding Gibbs grin. I thought of you, naturally

SisterHelenoftheEternalCatchUp Sat 01-Oct-16 21:40:34

Have been on stepper, then stretching. the second I sat down to stretch, stupid cat came over to sit next to me. She's v. sweet... smile

LetUs I might have a sip of spiced rum on your behalf, since you're not up to any alcohol. Or I might just slob on the sofa (because I can't be arsed moving now) and think about the 70% cocoa choclate that I bought today because it's healthier than the purple-wrapped stuff. chocolate Though it's kind of a challenge now to not eat slabs of chocolate at all for as long as I can. Or drink Red Bull either. This abstinence makes me officially even more boring that usual - no more waving a cheery can of red bull at people over my desk at work, or having a sugar-rush inspired sweary fit about other departments. Maybe that's why work's been so utterly tedious for the past couple of weeks hmm <rethinks position on not drinking red bull... considers bloated burpy feeling after drinking red bull... decides to carry on trying not to drink red bull... bores all wenches to tears> grin

<decorates by way of an apology>

PS - we're watching the Ryder Cup. I may go to bed.

PPS - <re-establishes one-track-mind wenching mode> whilst shopping I saw a magazine cover with someone lurking in a hooded cloak 'Oh', thinks I ' What's Grimaud doing on the cover?' It was actually advertising (I think) Assassins Creed. I thought of Mouse - wherever she's gone.
