hey - make the most of it Scoot!

CM you are not a misery - and I think you have been v calm about the kitchen!

Without wishing to be morbid it is not a bad idea to tell one's DH (or whoever) what you want to happen if something does happen to you....takes the pressure off in that situation - and talking about it does not make it happen...My Grandad had the whole lot planned when he died and I think my parents have done the same.

OK enough of this - DH and I are having an evening of sorting out Xmas presents tonight - I am feeling all smug that it is all under control and I have a horrid feeling that I will now find that I need a second mortgage to get all the things I havent got!

JamInMyWellies Tue 25-Nov-08 20:03:26

Still here, just annoying random preggo pains.

Lups lovely to see you.

Tillyscoutsmum Wed 26-Nov-08 08:51:08

Found you all !!

3 days to go ....... grin

<<Tilly rushes off to get on with a million things she's got left to do, despite thinking she was really organised shock)

MmeJaffa1ofyour5aday Wed 26-Nov-08 09:27:19

OMG Jam is this it???????? Jumps up and down in excitement. Early labour? Is it a little early? Excuse crap memory of due date.

MmeJaffa1ofyour5aday Wed 26-Nov-08 09:29:43

Wow tilly, 3 days, I'd be shiteing it. Can't wait to see some photys. It's always the bits that you can't do til the last minute that make things a rush at the end. I remember being really organised but rushed off my feet in the last few days.

JamInMyWellies Wed 26-Nov-08 11:54:05

No not due until 9th Dec but am getting increasingly fed up of being preggers. Especially as everything is ready now.

How exciting Tilly lots of love and luck to you both.

MKG Wed 26-Nov-08 12:20:24

Hello all. Today I am absolutely knackered. I spent all day yesterday running around and getting ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow. I can't wait for December to come and go, I'm so stressed about everything.

largeginandtonic Thu 27-Nov-08 09:14:49

<< holds weary head up >>

The sick...the poo... i can't cope.

3 more went down with the bug (so far) ds#4's seems to have reignited itself in the last 24hrs. I have been wiping poo bottoms in the middle of the night and been listening to endless whinging.

I have not been out the house. Beau terrorifes ds#4 all the time. He turns the TV off, hits him and climbs on him. I am at the end of my rag.

I think i am on 4 nights barely any sleep now. Moan, moan.

TMAM i got your email, will reply today smile

Jam do you think this is it or is it wishful thinking? Not long now is it. Was A late? I can't remember.

I have heard via FB from SOH smile She is fine, just has v temperamental tinternet access atm.

How is everyone else?

Pinkjenny Thu 27-Nov-08 09:22:02

Right, I will catch up in a mo. I have to admit that I have been in bed with McDreamy. Yes ladies, I am obsessed with Greys Anatomy. I am considering flying to America to try and break up Patrick Dempsey's marriage.


largeginandtonic Thu 27-Nov-08 09:44:01

Patrick Dempsey?? As in Dallas Dempsey? Good lord how old is he now?

largeginandtonic Thu 27-Nov-08 09:44:40


Pinkjenny Thu 27-Nov-08 09:45:43

No love. That's Patrick Duffy. grin

Happy Thanksgiving MKG!

largeginandtonic Thu 27-Nov-08 09:49:08

largeginandtonic Thu 27-Nov-08 09:50:46

Where the feck is everyone? I have been gone for days and have barely anything to catch up on.

Welcome back Lups!!! I thought of you the other day smile Which buggy is A in now wink

Pinkjenny Thu 27-Nov-08 09:52:34


He's my new number one. My administrator has gotten me into Greys Anatomy. I am obsessed. My BF has just said I'm the same now as I was when I was twelve when it comes to obsessing over boys!

largeginandtonic Thu 27-Nov-08 10:04:05

Good grief he is holding twins! That would make me run a mile grin Are they his?

He is quite cute though, could do with a haircut though.

Who got kicked out of X factor on Saturday?

Pinkjenny Thu 27-Nov-08 10:05:14
