PatTheHammer Thu 09-Jul-09 21:39:59

Ooo-er missus! wink Tis time I went to bed methinks, getting too much for me in m'old age blush

LenniEd Thu 09-Jul-09 21:40:53

DH has just asked me if there is any chance of some cumcumber action later. Had to explain my childish cackling. Anyway...

moosemama Thu 09-Jul-09 21:51:59

La La La, eyes closed, fingers in my ears - I am far too old for all this! grin (HKS Freudian slip I reckon. wink)

Actually, just posting to get this thread on my list. Thanks HKZ.

LenniEd Thu 09-Jul-09 21:53:58

hongkongzoe Thu 09-Jul-09 22:19:39

EachPeachPearMum Thu 09-Jul-09 22:27:51

Lol@cumcumber... by brother used to say cumcuber when he was little...

moosemama Thu 09-Jul-09 22:29:32

Stripey if you think this is filthy you should nip over to the Chris Corcoran webchat thread here poor guy doesn't know what he's let himself in for!

stripeywoollenhat Thu 09-Jul-09 22:52:02

moose, i may have to check it out tomorrow to see how he responds to all that virtual slavering... (and i know i'm gay and everything, but really, he's not all that, is he?)

moosemama Thu 09-Jul-09 23:22:00

Nah - don't get it myself, but I suppose as one lady on there put it, there's not exactly much competition among cbeebies presenters is there?

stripeywoollenhat Thu 09-Jul-09 23:32:09

i am happy to report that i have never even flicked past cbeebies. can't last, though, i guess...

SparkleandShine Fri 10-Jul-09 09:32:10


I spent 18 months not letting DS watch telly, then have gone the other way with DS2 blush. I wouldn't get anything done without the electronic babysitter! Mind you I'm with you on no adverts (the once or twice DS1 has seen them by accident he thinks they are programs) and keeping it gentle....Mind you at 3.5 DS1 is now spotting more and more stuff - he always begs daddy to watch more star wars hmm after he saw a couple of minutes by accident the other day...

stephaniefry Fri 10-Jul-09 09:42:04

love the title! the word cumcumber is making me gag just looking at it...(fnar)

missjackson Fri 10-Jul-09 11:33:01

grin great laugh getting up this morning to see the new cumcumber thread, almost spat my coffee across my computer - too funny!

Took Nye to the GP yesterday afternoon as he had started wheezing along with runny nose, and GP sent us off to hospital! So very long and frustrating and worrying evening there, eventually were told - he has a cold and a wheeze and there's nothing we can do. Although he does have an inhaler with a little face mask, poor little guy. He remained smiley and chatty throughout, despite it being hours past his bedtime. My worry is that it's an asthmatic reaction to a cold, as OH had bad asthma as a child - but they won't diagnose asthma in a baby as their lungs aren't fully developed. And nothing we could do anyway. But makes me very determined to bf for as long as possible, and will be quite strict on holding off on dairy and gluten until 9 months, as they have been linked to asthma I believe.

Anyway, yey for my Mum who marched into the hospital at 9.30pm bearing a basket full of food for us!

Enjoy your tesco food tink - I love that feeling of a full fridge.

And enjoy BLW stripey - how come you crumbled? I am tempted every day - am absolutely exhausted keeping my whopper fed on breast milk alone. But it's not like he is showing signs of ravenous hunger or even interest in food past wanting to grab it, which he does equally with my mobile phone grin.

moosemama Fri 10-Jul-09 12:04:51

MissJ, poor little Nye, hope he is better really soon.

Why does it always take so long to get them seen to at hospitals? I've spent 9hrs and 12hrs in hospital waiting rooms with ds2 when he has been off his head and having febrile convulsions, on two separate occasions. The first time they thought he had meningitis as well and there were other children with suspected measels in the same room fgs. The second time was last Christmas when they kept us waiting with him on our laps for 12 hrs in a room full of babies and children and then admitted him to an isolation room (that'll be about 12 hours too late then)!

Good on your Mum, what a star.

I am waiting for my Tesco delivery right now, they have 12 minutes left or they are late and will have a very hungry, stroppy mummy to deal with! Its like Old Mother Hubbard's in our kitchen at the moment.

Already had a delivery disaster today as the nappies were delivered without the wipes which were still on the invoice and delivery note. Phoned them, they apologised, said it was a warehouse error, but they are out of stock now until the middle of next week. Good job I always keep a stock and this order was actually next month's supply.

The surveyor came to survey the windows at the back of our house this morning ready for the new ones which should be fitted in about 3-4 weeks. (We currently have very old rusty metal framed windows which cause terrible condensation problems, freeze us all winter, then superheat us all summer.) He was due at 7.30 but arrived at 7.00 am - I was still in bed and had to get up and get him to do our window first so that I could feed dd when he'd finished. Bit of a shock too, apparently, because we have an arch over our back door its going to cost either £2000 for an arch shaped door or even more than that to have the arch knocked out and a new lintel put in. Fortunately the Trust are paying for it, just hoping there is enough money in the kitty to cover it.
