wigglesrock Sun 10-Jul-11 20:13:39

40Weeks thanks for the new thread and fab title. Will post stats up later this evening - any lurkers most welcome grin

reastie Sun 10-Jul-11 20:50:41

I laugh at the thought I hoped changing nap times would make a difference - she's still here with me and she's still awake confused

wiggles I tried to watch on iplayer luther but I couldn't get beyond the first 5 minutes as that lady character who was being interviewed by the polices top lip irritated me too much hmm

wigglesrock Sun 10-Jul-11 20:54:12

reastie sorry were there other people in Luther apart from Idris? I thought it was a one man show grin

janedoe25 Sun 10-Jul-11 21:00:20

reastie Hope a settles soon!

Im on the ball with the wedding planning now, today i got a bridesmaid dress, ordered invitations and sweetbags/stickers for the favours and booked appointments to check out photographers! Not much left to do now, thankfully, just the flowers, shoes, flower girl outfits and DF and best man outfits!

reastie Sun 10-Jul-11 21:04:09

it was right after idris was topless wiggles . perhaps you were collapsed on the floor with over excitement at this point grin ?

chocoroo Sun 10-Jul-11 21:04:15

Oooh. Lost you for a while there ladies...a combination of a trip to my mums and too much wine on Friday.

Think I'll stick to a brew for now and will try a keep up!

reastie Sun 10-Jul-11 21:05:00

how are the gumtree dresses in rl jane ?

wigglesrock Sun 10-Jul-11 21:07:35

reastie grin

jane great guns, that's exactly how my sister did it, we got her dress, her shoes, the flowergirls dresses, the ceremony date changed all in one day! Her feckin' jewellery took weeks of agonising shock

ILovePonyo Sun 10-Jul-11 21:09:50

I'm going to have to watch Luther now aren't I if its included in the thread title grin Thanks 40! Boo to early waking, 4.45 is still the middle of the night as far as I'm concerned. Are you bf or ff? Just asking b'cos I poked a bigger hole in the teat of dd's bottle today and she drank more milk much more quickly, obv not worth trying if you're bf grin

tarlia I don't think I have anything daft I've done thru lack of sleep (shh dd has been pretty good) but the other night I woke in the middle of the night and did that thing where I thought dd was in bed with us and dp was squashing her, lots of patting of the duvet and muttering "mind the baby" - I've not done that for weeks now! Used to do it all the time when she was small smile

ledkr love the fact that you think of people on the thread when the weather comes on, dp suggested we move to scotland today (mostly joking) and I thought of jane and how I "know" someone in scotland hmm (and irishqueen, where is she?), jane I'm not a stalker honest!

reastie I hope A is asleep now?

Off to read Glamour magazine before bed, jane some lovely pics of lily allen in her wedding dress, she's 3 months pregnant isn't she, once again I thought of you when looking at her dress blush <better shut up now>

40Weeks Sun 10-Jul-11 21:18:14

Ha ha ponyo am bfing so no hole poking for me (not that kind anyway wink)

Tarlia is wasn't recent but when pregnant with Mikey I was sooo tired and I dropped the food whisk into the cake mix of an engagement cake I was making for some friend. Then I did it again. Then I signed the engagement card from Phil instead of ds2's name (Owen) my dh thought I had lost it. He may have been right

ILovePonyo Sun 10-Jul-11 21:36:55

grin 40

reastie Sun 10-Jul-11 21:37:27

iv done loads of mad things when really tired but sadly im too tired to remember any of them blush . i'm sure they involve accidently putting odd things in fridges/bins though

ponyo - nope, shes still awake shock

40Weeks Sun 10-Jul-11 21:37:39

Sorry should explain....the cake mix obviously went all over the kitchen. Twice

hubbard86 Sun 10-Jul-11 21:41:19

not recent but when i've been tired i put tea on cornflakes instead of milk. Only just managed to get cake sorted after having my dnephew dumped on me again. Not a birthday card insight from sis and no mention. I don't know why i even raise my hopes. sad
Tom doesn't even seem bothered about nappy this morning when he got back i put him straight back into pants and had no accidents all afternoon so hopefully no damage done.

chocoroo Sun 10-Jul-11 21:47:13

I have a (relatively) sleepy baby but the tiredness still gets to me. I've put hand soap on my toothbrush at least 3 times since R arrived...

Had cuddles with two very new babies this weekend, I'm constantly amazed how quickly time is flying. I'm well over halfway through my mat leave, hopefully I won't still be soaping my toothbrush when I go back to work!

hubbard are you ok? You sound a bit down?

ponyo I welcome the thought of a stalker grin

The gumtree dress is fab, brand new with tags on! I bought it for 30 squid! Bargain grin

Df is away again all of next week, he is going away tomorrow sad

reastie Sun 10-Jul-11 22:01:05

no jane - you don't want a stalker - my cousin had an online one remember? she had to get the police involved but I don't know the gory details. Her stalker lives in Cheltenham though <eyes glance at ledkr> wink

hubbard I agree with jane sounds like you're having probs with being put upon from ILs and with dh. Anything you want to talk about?

I think (crossed fingers) she may be asleep grin
