R would probably love to scribble on a bit of paper for me, but I doubt anyone will give him the opportunity and I'll be damned if I do it for myself! Will be at the ILs though so they might organise something? MIL likes getting up early with him to play so at least I'll get a lie in and a cuppa in bed grin

Missed virtually all of the last thread blush

Mother's Day. He wants to take me out for lunch. I want to take my mum out for lunch. I might just arrange to work...

fruitpastilles Tue 25-Mar-14 17:44:47

I wonder if I will get a lie in this year? Wishful thinking I think.

fruitpastilles Tue 25-Mar-14 17:45:58

Just tell him your taking your mum out, he surely doesn't really think you will go for lunch with him does he?

Hello shiny new thread!

Bad night last night with F, hopefully tonight he will sleep through. <all fingers and toes are crossed!>

Sophiathesnowfairy Tue 25-Mar-14 18:41:38

Ahhhhh I lost. Grrrr.

fruitpastilles Tue 25-Mar-14 18:49:23

lily is the queen of thread killing.

Lily311 Tue 25-Mar-14 18:50:58

twirls around proudly, another thread killed

O might have had a help from the quiche, there is an envelope waiting for me to open on Mother's Day. I am forever grateful and you have no idea how much it means to me.

On a serious note, I might have agreed to run the half marathon in September. Fuck.

PetiteRaleuse Tue 25-Mar-14 19:04:45

I don't know when mother's day is over here.

PetiteRaleuse Tue 25-Mar-14 19:06:21

Well done Lily I would have come to help but DD1 developed a sudden phobia of fireworks aand for some random reason there was a liad of them going off about 45 minutes ago.

soph there must be other options right. (((Hugs))) when is D-day?

YellowWellies Tue 25-Mar-14 19:13:42

I've ordered some Hotel Chocolat as a Mother's Day / weaning present to myself. It won't last til Sunday! DH has something planned too - not sure what. I'd like to go out for lunch somewhere and be able to pick ANYTHING I fancy (not just the one safe thing) off a menu. grin grin grin

Isles if it were me I'd put your foot down - lunch for the girls with your Mum. After his paddy on the phone he can't expect you to sit at a table with him? Unless he really is utterly unstable?

We made a mother's day card for MIL today and I got my sister's two to make one just in case their Disney Dad forgets / is being petty. Given he forgot birthday cards when married I figured we needed a back up plan!

PetiteRaleuse Tue 25-Mar-14 19:23:13

isles yes I forgot to say please go out with your mum (if you currently feel she is being supportive) or stay on your own with Tilly and do something fun together. Please please don't set yourself up for a nightmare with him. His behaviour has been shocking the last few days and I thought he couldn't be any more shocking.

PetiteRaleuse Tue 25-Mar-14 19:51:51

Why do models and slebs pose for pictures all pigeon toed? I don't see the point/attraction? It's been bugging me. It's not trying to be girly wirly baby doll bollocks is it?

Zamboni Tue 25-Mar-14 20:12:48

Hello. I'm not a cutesy person and DH is working at 0530 so it will be an early start and a day at home alone with the DC for me. Which is precisely what I need. Manic at work and people are giving me the rage. I left at 6.30 this morning and am only just home so no cuddles with the DC all day, although I am fairly sure S will oblige overnight!

Well done Lily for thread killing.

PR yes keep MIL at a safe distance.

YW good luck for scan!

DH took S to the hosp so I need to learn how to use the nebuliser but apparently all well.

PetiteRaleuse Tue 25-Mar-14 20:22:40

(((Hugs))) zamboni you sound like you need them.

Mamma Mia is on ITV3.

Jims Tue 25-Mar-14 20:23:24

Sophia - am confused about problems with rail travel. Maybe i need to read back but hope you can sort it ok.

Yw - good luck for tomorrow

YellowWellies Tue 25-Mar-14 20:30:56

The bear's snoring in his cot. Sniff that's the last time I'll feed him to sleep on an evening sad

ValiumQueen Tue 25-Mar-14 20:50:37

YW Big Hug x It is horrid, but there is no better reason to be stopping than to help his sibling stay on board as long as possible x You have done so well.

Good thread killing grin

Isles, tell him to fuck off. It is your day, so why the FUCK would you want to see him, let alone go out for a meal with him!

My hubby is visiting his mother on Saturday and will be coming back on the Sunday. That would be inexcusable if it were not for her illness. I cannot really grumble grumble grumble grumble

DD2 has a very pink room. Shocking pink. Never again will Daddy be trusted to paint shop alone. Although I guess I should be grateful as she wanted black.

BigPigLittlePig Tue 25-Mar-14 20:54:34

<slap> for PR

<stab> for Lily

Isles it is mothers day. T will be spending it with her mummy, who will be with her mummy, non?

YW sad end of one era, but beginning of a new one. All being well with the scan, you're nearly into 2nd trimester. Am v envy at the lack of pg symptoms, can only hope am similarly blessed in the future.

We're all coming down with colds here, so everyone a bit miserable. When I arrived to collect F from nursery, she saw me, and, poker faced, marched right past, inside, collected her bag and stood by the door. I think she had had enough!

PurplePidjin Tue 25-Mar-14 21:20:43

<envelops YW in massive cuddle>

Isles fuck him off to the far side of fuck. And then some

<snuggles Zamboni too>

I've offered to take 6yo dn to the shop to get something for SIL. The brief look that passed across his face when he realised it was her birthday a few weeks ago and fuckwit ex cunt BIL hadn't helped him get something for her was saddening. So I said to her I'll walk him and R up to Sainsburys if he wants to get a card. Up to him, but he's at the age when he knows exactly how much use his twatface dad is but isn't anywhere near old enough for his wishes to be taken into account sad and he tries so hard to protect his big sister (non verbal ASD) from the worst sad

PetiteRaleuse Tue 25-Mar-14 21:34:35

I am sobbing at mamma mia slipping through my fingers followed by the winner takes it all (which, btw, I thought was about the Wimbledon final as a child hmm )

I think I have PMS which might explain my self doubt today.

Bloody hell there are a lot of ad breaks in films on British TV shock
