cruch - ha ha, same goes for poo in terms of colour, texture, consistency and it's relationship to the likelihood of having to beg for time off work the following day

When your handbag is no longer filled with lipsticks that have lids on, pieces of paper with boy's phone numbers on, the latest indie CD and pack of malboro lights. It is instead filled with tissues, lipsticks with no lids on, dummy, cotton wool balls, plasters and pieces of paper with school/doctor's phone numbers on. hmm

Ninah - I did that the other night!

Out for first time since birth of DD2 with work friends (due to return after summer hols).

All sat in reasonably sophisticated restaurant ie no soft play.

I point out of window and exclaim - ooooh look! fire engine with lights flashing!

They all (single childless youngsters) looked at me as if I was unhinged!
