Lovely new thread Wicked wine

Having a great time. DS1 is tired grin. Off out for something to eat.

Hope Madame's migraine fucked off and Badderz can soon expand her diet

WickedWenchOfTheNorth Sat 01-Apr-17 19:15:19

Glad you're having a good time Letus smile
Today I've done the food shopping, worked, recycled, cleared the bathroom sink drain (?), changed the bed, handwashed some stuff. Chilling on the couch with a glass of wine watching Midsomer Murders smile

WickedWenchOfTheNorth Sat 01-Apr-17 22:06:06

Watching *Oxford Street Revealed^ and a bunch of ice sculptors from Jukkasjärvi in Sweden are renewing the decor in the Ice Bar. Even the ice itself is a special kind of ice from Torne River, apparently that's the best ice. Awesome grin

LetUsPrey Sat 01-Apr-17 22:17:42

Had much food.

Just seen a trailer for a programme called Big Cats. Lots of domestic cats in it too by the looks of it.

grin at the best ice. But of course!

SisterHelenoftheEternalCatchUp Sun 02-Apr-17 07:20:09

Morning. No cat vom today yet.
I had a fun spa day and meal with friends. And am a bit tired so plan on going back to bed once DH is up. That's about as far as my brain has got with an plans for the day. I also need to put the clean and dry covers back on the sofa. At some point,. When I can be bothered...

Glad to hear that " LetUs does London" went well yesterday - hopefully today will also go well.

apricot yay! for DS' new girlfriend

Hope Madame's Migraine FTFO and the wedding was ok

Hello! Had a v nice time thanks - took lots of drugs <nto> so migraine fucked off. Got in at 3 so knackered. Have to go pick up ds now, urg. <applies matchsticks>

apes lovely news about your ds. Yay! flowers

Glad Letus Does London went well. grin

HOMEWORK CRISIS - Does anyone have an idiot-proof Easter Hat "recipe" that I could manage and looks vaguely good? Ds has this big easter hat parade on thurs at school and they all have to make their own hats. I am the least crafty person on the planet. I've had a quick look on internet but cant find anything that good. Ta muchly... flowers

SisterHelenoftheEternalCatchUp Sun 02-Apr-17 10:11:52

I liked the sheep one and the carrot ones that I saw. But I didn't save them. give me a mo.....

Or you could do an aussie hat with mini-eggs (sellotaped to thread and sewn into brim of hat)?

SisterHelenoftheEternalCatchUp Sun 02-Apr-17 10:13:51

At least the shops are all full of easter tat now... DS had his easter bonnet competition at school ridicolously early and I couldn#t fins any easter tat - was a bti of a nightmare since it was right after we were back for les vacances and not in the least prepared for making hats confused

MadamedeChevreuse Sun 02-Apr-17 10:37:51

Ah see now I was following your post fine till I reached the word "sewn" and I'm afraid I just didn't recognise it. <reaches for dictionary>

I like the sheep one. Looks difficult though. hmm

SisterHelenoftheEternalCatchUp Sun 02-Apr-17 10:43:15

Sheep - ignore green stuff, get cotton wool balls and some glue; get black baber and googly eyes from shop and cut out sheeps head - glue to cotton wool. Paint rin of hat green if you're that keen...

'Sewn' - stick thread in needle ; stick needle through brim of hat. tie knot at top. Tape other end of thread to mini-egg.

<Dives into sanctuary of the Tav.>

Well, we have had a bit of a week. Rain like I've never seen (and I'm from South Wales where it really rains exceptionally hard at times), and we've been stranded by floods. So luckily not us flooded - we are on elevated side of street so our house is fine but the other side totally flooded and cars have been flooded up to window line. Power has been on and off. so we've basically just been helping some of the neighbours try and sort stuff out and waiting to drain. I'm slightly scared of the floodwaters after the news reports of why you shouldn't wade in, and also that a few (000km) up the road there was a Bull Shark stranded in the floodwater. Erm. I'll just stay inside.

Tragically nice neighbour who hacks BBC's living room wrecked including the black electric box thing which they tape stuff for me on!!!!' The horror.

Boys have enjoyed school being shut and we've had a bit of blitz spirit as flooded neighbour has moved in with us till they get sorted.

I've been highly unimpressed that Mr C left me in a bloody cyclone to go off having a ball in NZ. Grrrrrrr. He's back on Tuesday and will pay for his crimes.

Thread not loading well as have no wifi so haven't read just hope this posts. Hope to be back on utilities properly tomorrow.

Love you all

Soggy Comtess

Badders123 Sun 02-Apr-17 12:00:53

Your poor neighbours! 😞
So glad you are ok
I've popped to mums...first time I've been outside for a week!
Poor ds2 got stung by a bee last night really not been our week but he is fine now
Dh away this week so hoping for no drama 😒
Love to all

MadamedeChevreuse Sun 02-Apr-17 13:16:36

shock comtesse!

Glad you're all ok but sad for your neighbours. Blitz spirit is always good eh. grin Hope all is back to normal soon esp. your neighbour's magic black tellybox.

Ty helen we've bought the ingredients for a Shaun the Sheep hat. But they only had girly googly eyes with eyelashes on, so obvs that is not ideal. hmm

ApricotCrush Sun 02-Apr-17 14:48:46

Hello wenches.

Had a fab evening. Lovely new DS's GF brought her twin boys. I feel like we're a proper family again.

Pleased LetUs, Madame and Helen had a good day out.

Crikey Comtess, sounds awful. Your poor neighbours. sad

So glad I'm not involved in the Easter hat thing.

MadamedeChevreuse Sun 02-Apr-17 17:27:35

PVA glue on the sofa, floor and in my hair, but it's done now. hmm

SisterHelenoftheEternalCatchUp Sun 02-Apr-17 17:57:20

OMG That's brilliant Madame!
<wipes proud tear away>

Glad to hear that Chez Comtess isn't under water, though sad re. neighbours and general flooded situation. Was a bit worried when reading news reports this morning, so phew.

Have been in the garden....

WickedWenchOfTheNorth Sun 02-Apr-17 17:58:09

Evening smile

Glad wenches had a good time.

Blimey Comtess shock

I had a lot of energy this weekend so I think I'm at a certain stage in the blob cycle. Been cooking a stew and now I have a soup on the stove.
I'm also watching Wife Swap with a stupid bint that think that her husband is a mix of prime minister and God hmm

ApricotCrush Sun 02-Apr-17 17:59:23

Awww, he's beautiful Madame. What do you mean, you're the least crafty person on the planet?? hmm

Badders123 Sun 02-Apr-17 18:48:04

That's fab Madame 🌟
I've had a burst of energy and hoovered, done the dishes and ironed
I've also cleaned a rug and done ds2s homework with him
Dh away this week so planning on a doing nothing much at all

WickedWenchOfTheNorth Sun 02-Apr-17 19:10:39

Well done Madame star

I'm knackered, had to do cooking and other stuff whilst almost tripping over Fräsan all the time. Is this what it's like to be a mother? I'm having a glass of wine now, trying to relax confused
