I often read( sorry soapy) "i am in tears readng about this"
now with the exception of accounts of losing a baby or the thread " shall I go to the chapel of rest" thread, i just dont see how.

You're a hard old fish.

Did thomcat's news not bring a tear to your eye after reading about all she's been through?

OTOH perhaps we're all hormonal.

You are a hard one - frozen fish fingers actually!

I think it is perfectly acceptable to have a tear in one'ws eye following such good news!

So you can just jump back into your packet and get off into the freezer!

I did have a tear once reading someones accounts of the trouble they were having with their difficult son - it was so heartrending and I think i was premenstrual.

constantly holding back tears at school things - even the easter hat parade - its the way they all look so serious

i cry when ds2 achieves something new, like seeing him use a sn trike for the first time, and the pride in his face, or through stress.

fishfinger Thu 23-Jun-05 19:51:29

Only thread that has ever made me cry was Thomcats today.

In RL though I cry at some odd things.

Took dd1 to see the Tweenies stage show when she was 3 and cried when I saw the look on her face as they came out (blimey, am welling up now).

Also had to struggle to not cry when i took them to see the Snowman.

Oh and assemblies, i struggle with latly too. Dd2 is doing one next week so will take some tissues . Mind you the whole class are gouing to be singing Is this the way to Amarillo, so i'll probably be crying of laughter.

I do sometimes, not often though. I was a bit sick of Strawberry by the end of it, I mean, it did go on, didn't it?

lou33 Thu 23-Jun-05 20:00:19

Tinker Thu 23-Jun-05 20:00:42

The strawberry one seemed so ungrateful by the end

lou33 Thu 23-Jun-05 20:01:03
