I have been hanging about for a few days waiting for the new thread, so I thought I'd get off my ass and make one myself. Happy weekend all, and Happy Mother's Day!


MisSalLaneous Mon 15-Mar-10 18:07:15

Hey you greedy lot, scoffing mini-eggs as soon as I turn my back?! Sounds like great Mother's Days all around. Here quiet - got breakfast in bed, went to the park with R and dh, and as little as possible else. R made a little heart fridge magnet at nursery and a card, which I thought was very lovely.

Scorps, I'm so sorry, but this made me laugh "as you all know I very much enjoyed him in that way". grin

PFJ, Jack is adorable! Love your pics.

How did hospital go, Knitter? Hope you ended up having a nice day in the end and that you'll feel better soon.

Hmm, meet up? I'd LOVE to! (Even if that Soph ditches us. <<shakes head in disbelief>> wink )

Denny, thanks for your reassurance re toddler dia--- (can never spell it either) - I've wondered whether I should hold off on potty training because of it, but if it didn't actually make your life that much harder, I'd love to be rid of those nappies! Weirdly enough, R's nappies better now. Only things I've changed is more fats, less sugars (fruit), more fibre (that's the advice I found on googling), so not sure if it's just coincidence. Either way, I'm not complaining!

Soph, that's a hard one, poor Sam (and you). Any chance of outgrowing it soon?

Ooh, and Ladybee, I'm really impressed. Good grief, I can't believe that's your first attempt at knitting. I've considered doing something, but was thinking more in the lines of a plain rectangular blanket!

Scorps Mon 15-Mar-10 19:47:12

Sal - grin it's going to grow over, I swear grin. Not ready for that yet anyway.

Had a nice day; went in town and park with my homestart lady. Dad came up and played with the dcs and I got lovely stir fry from the butchers. Weather wa lush today. Tomorrow is toddlers then meeting a friend for lunch

I'm doing ok, slow and steady wins the race.

Scorps Mon 15-Mar-10 19:49:39

Also I have discovered mini egg dessert things - chic yoghurt stuff and about 6 mini eggs in the other compartment!

LadyBee Mon 15-Mar-10 20:06:40

well, I knew how to do the stitches but had never done anything like increasing/decreasing to shape and had to do something called 'picking up' stitches for the neckband. But I knew that I'd lose motivation if I didn't try to make something that I actually wanted B to have.

Next up are mittens but I think I might have left it a bit late - by the time I've finished two it'll probably be too warm to wear them.

I did venture on a knitting website and nearly wet myself when i saw this sheep costume. I am soooo going to make it for B one day (when I'm much much better). Even if he never participates in a nativity.

Sal, did you ever go see the Teddies nursery? I'm starting to think about getting B in for 1 or 2 sessions a week somewhere before he hits three. I only just found the park (with cafe) close to it and had no idea there was a nursery close by. If you did, did you like it? and do you remember how much it was?

LadyBee Mon 15-Mar-10 20:08:35

mini egg dessert things?? I can't decide whether that just sounds too wrong or whether I might want to hunt one down and try it hmm

MisSalLaneous Mon 15-Mar-10 20:36:40

Lol Scorps!

Ladybee, yes, R's actually still going there once a week. It's £277 pm for the one day. Expensive, but he likes it. Send me an e-mail to (sorry, I'm not currently subscribed to CAT on here), and I'll give you some more info.

KnitterInTheNW Mon 15-Mar-10 20:46:30

Ugh... what a day...

Ended up spending the morning/early afternoon in hospital, having the abscess drained. Normally they do it under general anaesthetic, but did mine with local. It. Hurt. And still does. The doc said that I had a very high pain threshold though, so something to be proud of... or something?!

The painkillers they gave me to bring home make me feel very spaced out, so I won't be able to take them tomorrow while I'm on my own with G. Have to go to see district nurse tomorrow though to get it re-packed (blee) & re dressed, so will ask for something different.

Woe is me, etc etc etc!

MisSalLaneous Mon 15-Mar-10 20:55:11

Sounds horrid. Poor you. sad Take as much as allowed now so that you at least get a proper night's sleep. x

LadyBee Mon 15-Mar-10 21:55:08

oof Knitter, that does sound rough. Dr must have been impressed, don't they normally say 'this might be a little uncomfortable' for excruciating treatments?

Good luck with it all tomorrow.

Sal, have mailed you.

MisSalLaneous Mon 15-Mar-10 22:41:28

Thanks Ladybee, have just sent you a long, rambling e-mail. Apologies in advance!

SuperSoph73 Tue 16-Mar-10 13:06:19

Thanks Sal - now I feel really bad wink S'cuse me people but how can I see your pics I've got no little profile thingamejig that I used to have and I need to see your new piccies!!

MisSalLaneous Tue 16-Mar-10 13:11:13

And so you should! grin <<works on master plan to guilt trip Soph into joining us>>

Re pics... Hmm, I don't know, I just click on someone's name, then on "pictures" at the bottom of the screen. Mine doesn't currently work as I've changed my profile to not being public. Heaven knows why, as I stick links to my personal photo's on here all the time... Anyway, that's how I saw Ladybee and PFJ's pics.

MisSalLaneous Tue 16-Mar-10 13:39:02

I've just made my profile public again. Mind you, it's just as boring as before and I'm trying to stay out of MN fights at the moment, so don't think anyone would actually care!

SuperSoph73 Tue 16-Mar-10 14:50:41

Thanks *Sal. Unfortunately, no matter how guilty you make me feel I still wouldn't be able to physically fit in a meet-up, so there! <<sticks out tongue in petulant manner & goes off for a sob>>

I'm getting a migraine. I can barely see out of my left eye & I can feel the pain building in my head. And I've got a library full of pain in the arse adobrable Year 12 & 13.

MisSalLaneous Tue 16-Mar-10 15:32:56

Oh okayyyyyy then, if you're going to be all nice about it (ignoring the soppy tongue for a minute there wink ), I'll admit that, were I in your shoes, it wouldn't have been practical for me either. Would it help if I'll admit we'll miss you loads and might use that as an excuse to drink a cocktail on you ?

Any chance you could drink something immediately to stop migraine hitting you full out? Going home immediately? Hope you're ok.

SuperSoph73 Tue 16-Mar-10 16:01:37

Yes Sal that would help hugely! Unfortunately I can't go home as I'd have to come back again to pick up DH & DS1 & I don't think driving in this condition would be advisable LOL. I can see again now though so that's something. It's just the pain is kicking in like a good'un <<ouch, sob, feels sorry for self>>.

SuperSoph73 Tue 16-Mar-10 16:11:14

Have put 3 new photos on my profile. Please have a look if you get a mo

MisSalLaneous Tue 16-Mar-10 16:16:32

Aww Soph, your children are beautiful! I love the one with the two of them at the swing, they look so happy!

SuperSoph73 Tue 16-Mar-10 16:40:20

Thanks Sal .... we think so (in our completely unbiased opinion of course!)

Am going to get ready to go now.

See you tomorrow xxxxx

MisSalLaneous Tue 16-Mar-10 16:53:29

Night! Hope you feel better tomorrow.

KnitterInTheNW Tue 16-Mar-10 20:43:27

Completely agree with Sal, gorgeous boys! And I can see that George has a rival in the 'cheeky face' stakes with Sam!

EllieG Wed 17-Mar-10 10:33:47

Hey ladies! Long time no speak!

Work 'puter wouldn't let me on and home one was broken so no MNing for me boo.

How's tricks?

EllieG Wed 17-Mar-10 10:35:03

OOOOO! It let me post because it was a new thread and the work firewall didn't recognise it!


Molly is fine btw - proper little girl now - can't believe they are all going to be turning two soon!

MisSalLaneous Wed 17-Mar-10 10:44:32

Whoooo hooooo, hello Ellie!!! grin grin grin Ellie vs IT 1 - 0

All good here. No dates yet, but we're thinking of a summer meet up again. I've already started wondering how we'll gather all the lost sheep again to force attendance, but glad to see you came willingly. wink

I'm going to paint the bathroom white again today. My red phase is over (romantic look somewhat spoiled by the frogs and ducks that's taken over since Master's arrival...) Exciting life I lead, I tell 'ya!

KnitterInTheNW Wed 17-Mar-10 10:50:19

Ellie!!!!!! Hello!!! grin

I was going to text you at the weekend, if we hadn't heard from you! Must be psychic or something...

I think we'll be able to 'round up some strays' via FB maybe, I know I'm friends with at least a couple of people that haven't posted for a while, I've been thinking about that too!

I hurt. Ouch.

And did I mention that it's George's bday on Sunday? grin
