Hi everyone!! My predictive text also knows you all even KittyBitty! grin
I am on annual leave this week! DC1 came home from Uni last night at 945 & went to pub at 1015! That must be a record! Now asleep! I went to DD3's piano performance this morning at school & have done laundry, cleaned all my wood floors & made a lentil bake like a proper mummy! DD4 slept much better last night apart from crying at 530 which woke me up although she went back to sleep until 7am! I didn't! Feel ok though!

How are you all today?

starsandunicorns Tue 26-Mar-13 14:12:31

Kitty i wouldnt call most of them friends persay i work with them but yeah i got shunned last night. silly people.

I am quite happy to work in silence though just me and thoughts did the food shopping list too grin

starsandunicorns Tue 26-Mar-13 14:14:10

Nice to see that dc1 is home from uni midwife. Have a good leave

KittyAndTheFontanelles Tue 26-Mar-13 15:12:38

erm...themidwife, how many children do you have? I think I've counted 6!

I'm on my knees and not in a good way grin

Even if she goes to sleep Ive still got to make this blasted hat and Ive got her godfather coming for tea. He's vegetarian so I'm doing two seperate Thai green curries from scratch. (don't have enough quorn for us all to have vegetarian)

Why won't she sleep sad


KittyAndTheFontanelles Tue 26-Mar-13 15:23:48

mini that is so crap. Evidently this is progress. Ive had online prescription failure before too. Shoddy. Poor lumpy, sneezy mini (sounds like 3 of the 7 dwarves- hey, we've got doc too grin and I can be bashfulhmm )

Minimammoth Tue 26-Mar-13 15:45:06

Has she gone off yet kitty? 7 dwarves gotta include grumpy. Re hat. Perhaps Rips could send you the kidney, elastic under chin. Job done.

KittyAndTheFontanelles Tue 26-Mar-13 16:11:00

Oh mini that's the best idea grin.
She went off for a matter of minutes. I picked up my needle and some green felt and started to make a frill and she started sobbing. She's currently dozing on the boob and sobbing slightly. This hat is not going to be finished for tomorrow sad. It's such a shame because she loves hats, I love making things and I know exactly how it would look if only I was able to do it.

I've been trying to do this for the last two weeks and kept getting scuppered.

I think right now I'd make a perfect 'grumpy'.

Midwife99 Tue 26-Mar-13 16:46:12

Oh ha ha I have 4 children, 2 boys, 2 girls smile

starsandunicorns Tue 26-Mar-13 17:54:06

Oh no Kitty poor you ref hat bet she love it anyway
ref Grumpy name could this be interchangeable ( hell that was a big word from me !) grin depending on how ones feels due to non sleep though think you should have it kitty.

Think Summerdad should get sleepy at minute as hes not been on this thread yet smile

KittyAndTheFontanelles Tue 26-Mar-13 20:24:28

oh good one stars grin

cafecito Tue 26-Mar-13 23:23:31

green curry!? oh kitty <swoon>

mrsshrek- QC hahahahaaa hollow laugh, I used to work with some top QCs, alas, I never appreciated the position I was in at the time, I just wanted outta there. Now I look back and think, wow I was lucky. eherm, one day that would be awesome, but I'd be super old by then. I'd need one shedload of botox, but then my advocacy would fail as I would be unable to speak

themidwife I too counted 6 grin

stars, yay for job!

bluey glad you enjoyed yoga. I am usually a bit addicted to ashtanga yoga and extreme upside downy pilates, but I have only been about 4 times since Christmas shock combination of work, work, work, then chocolate overload. I know I would feel better if I went back, but not done this yet

I am, back in the library, with some coke - cocacola- (coffee shop shut before I could get a cappuccino) with the main aim of covering an ENTIRE LAW SYLLABUS in one night

so far, I am on 'slide 33' out of 675 combined powerpoints. I have lost the ability to read books and have a clue what is going on. I also have to start my research project. sigh.

Not a bad thing though, as I have to be awake at night all weekend as working nights again so may as well start readjusting..!

cafecito Tue 26-Mar-13 23:26:50

how goes bonnet? can you make it artfully dishevelled? with holes for the spring if you run out of time?

Don't listen to me. I fail even at sewing on buttons.

I am not very domesticated blush

starsandunicorns Wed 27-Mar-13 00:01:29

I got to push the post trolley i have named him Tim anyway off to bed up early hope you are well cafe

Hugs to all

cafecito Wed 27-Mar-13 00:24:09

I hope KittyBitty is asleep and not quacking

Tim the post trolley?! grin goodnight stars!

jynier Wed 27-Mar-13 00:40:40

Is SummerDad fed up with the thread?

BlueyDragon Wed 27-Mar-13 00:51:24

cafe, are you "just" covering the core modules? Tort: snails in ginger beer. Contract: lots of stevedores. Land and trusts: no-one else really understands it either. Crime: shunned by real (for which read actually get paid) lawyers but in reality is the most fun and you can catch almost anything under the Fraud Act. Can't remember the other core modules. Three years of study in four lines grin.

I'm awake not because DS is poorly, although he is proper poorly, but because I have been out gallivanting with some old school friends. Some I hadn't seen for over 20 years, yet no-one seemed to have changed much. It was lovely!

jynier Wed 27-Mar-13 01:47:13

Hi to anyone who is still awake!

Am a night sky enthusiast and have been gazing at the full moon over the village; it's beautiful!

Was thinking about the Super Moon of 2 years ago; my little bro was able to see it from his skyscraper hospital bed - it was reflected in an opposite window.

He laughed so much when I told him of all my efforts to take a good photo; I went down the road, climbed over a 5-barred gate, walked gingerly through a field covered in rabbit shite ... !

It's my darling bro's anniversary today.

cafecito Wed 27-Mar-13 01:52:24

oh gallivanting is always good Bluey- no not those modules I'm afraid (although a dash of trusts is required). PMSL at snails and stevedores, that's about all I remember - and the guy who climbed in the girl's window for sex and she claimed to not know it wasn't her boyfriend confused Thank goodness I have forgotten don't need to redo those.

In depth stuff of an overly stuffed syllabus. The plan to cover it all in one night has failed, as I have nearly run out of colour coded paper grin I use different colour paper for different things so my brain scrambles them less. pink = international law, green = random statutory provisions yellow = anatomy cream = waffly stuff squared = pharmacology confused

MrsShrek3 Wed 27-Mar-13 01:53:38

hi Jynier smile
still stargazing?

DH is nattering and neither of us are tired.... how are you all doing?

MrsShrek3 Wed 27-Mar-13 01:54:02

hi cafe, x post

cafecito Wed 27-Mar-13 01:54:05

I remember a crime exam, where I forgot all the case names, and made my handwriting reeeeally scruffy, and kept writing illegibly R v Roberts

that was not a good exam - still managed to pass it though hmm and contract, was not good either- I only answered 2 of 4 compulsory questions. I sat there staring into space for over an hour at the start, and left my pencil case on the tube

cafecito Wed 27-Mar-13 01:57:12

Oh jynier- just read today is your dbro's anniversary sad thanks [virtual embrace] all these anniversaries one after the other, you must feel like you've been repeatedly hit by an express train. Thinking of you.

Yes I love night skies but can't see very clearly in London. I love nighttime generally. Everything is pretty- I used to go for long walks around London (er about 10 years ago) at around 2am and everything was so prettily lit up, westminster, the RCJ, the riverfront. I also like walking on the beach at night, very relaxing if a little unsafe

Hi mrsshrek!!

jynier Wed 27-Mar-13 02:32:05

Thank you for being so kind.

jynier Wed 27-Mar-13 04:16:39

The full moon is AMAZING now; absolutely beautiful!!!

We have no light pollution here in the village, cafe, so we are blessed with being able to see everything in the night sky. See all the meteor showers, etc.

Equally, I love the lights in London; no longer visit very often but my son lives near the South Bank and am always delighted by the "fairytale" sight of the historic buildings and everything along the Thames at night!

cafecito Wed 27-Mar-13 04:32:27

Oh wow meteor showers? I love a clear night sky. I can't see the moon from here shock <peers out of window>

I am wide awake, but not being very productive- ditching law due to lack of paper, had a really yucky coffee from the naff machine next to the library, feel a bit ill and need a shower grin nice.. moving on now to some haematology- I have wasted some time downloading new songs so doing a strange dr cafe library dance while writing
