Yup that's me!!! Call it the steroids, call it pregancy hormones...I do not know but i am the witch from hell
Everyone at work has 'had it' today and DH is next on the list if he doesn't bring me home a can of coke...
Any other witches out there? Wonder if there's a cure?

I'm horrible, there is a cure...First, you give birth, then you breastfeed, then a few months after stopping breastfeeding your hormones start to calm down a touch

Don't worry lockets... give it 3 months post BB and no one will remember least Jordan didn't have a girl and steal your name or something, then everyone would have been called Saskia!

I'm not due till October LOL!! I'm 23 weeks on Sunday...look like an elephant

He's a little sod, but a loveable one hope your little ones and you aren't melted into puddles like we are! Eugh I'd hate breastfeeding in this weather, all sweaty like!

I'm 40 weeks today.

Most days am witch from the pits of hell. Occasionally am lovely scrummy wife who bakes filo pastry tarts for husband's homecoming from work.

Depends whether I've had any sleep.

fastasleep Thu 23-Jun-05 13:48:44

Oh yeah that's another thing, can't stop baking...but the witch from hell seems to return before I get the chance to clean up!

I'm baking too! Oatmeal cookies at 11 p.m. last night and will make strawberry tarts tonight. Though why I feel compelled to stand in a hot kitchen in this heat is beyond me. Hormones?

Mogwai, I have nothing but admiration for you baking at 40 weeks in this weather!

fastasleep Thu 23-Jun-05 13:55:32

Oh yikes hourly feeds... you poor thing, bet you have a heat rash and sucker marks!!!

SaintGeorge Thu 23-Jun-05 13:57:07

I'm sorry, maybe the heat is winding me up, but this thread title really pi$$es me off

Saint George PML!...I feel your pain lockets! I remember expressing in weather a bit like this, that was bad enough *shudder*

fastasleep Thu 23-Jun-05 14:05:40

Ohhhhh 'witch' I get it now, don't be offended, I think we mean the wrinkly warty fairytale kind that feed you poisoned apples..

SaintGeorge Thu 23-Jun-05 14:06:23

So glad you find the fact that I am upset funny fastasleep. Keep laughing, I'll pi$$ off.

Sorry x posted with your 2nd message.

Yes it was the witch I was upset by. I normally keep quiet but I do find it highly offensive the way it is constantly used as a derogatory term.

ChaCha Thu 23-Jun-05 14:09:14

That is exactly the kind of witch i meant!!! And i used it so as not to use a very similar word .. em..have i missed something though?

SweetFudge Thu 23-Jun-05 14:09:33

Fastasleep, why is Saint George upset? Can you explain with the witch reference?

SaintGeorge Thu 23-Jun-05 14:10:02

I am a witch ChaCha. The old fairy tale images are very insulting to modern day witches.

ChaCha Thu 23-Jun-05 14:10:59

Exactly, am totally lost
