Im fumming starlet has had a text from dd1 who I dont have contact with dd1 has comtact with my motuer in my mothers wisdom ( being the controling toxic person that she is) has told dd1 everything about what been happening with starlet

starlet and dd1 fell out months ago to which dd1 told starlet to go away putting it mildey
so now dd1 has sent a text to starlet saying stuff I have a v v very upset starlet

this all stems from when I found out somthing about my past that was kept sercet for my own good. To which I distanced myself from toxic mother Arggghhhhhhhh

well done Kitty and themidwife, agree. don't worry jynier, but we want to be a welcoming little enclave of nocturnal beings grin after all, we're all awake for some reason or another!

sorry to hear about dd1/starlet stress, last thing she needs at the moment!

Mrs, I am terrified of obstetrics, I'll leave that to themidwife thanks very much grin

Kitty - hot, much? (in all senses) how is littlebittykitty?

jynier Thu 18-Jul-13 00:40:38

Hi, all! I did send a very apologetic PM to Vito last night; no reply so far but hope that she comes back.

cafecito Thu 18-Jul-13 02:15:45

cafecito Thu 18-Jul-13 02:37:47

hope all are well, I have become a bit grumpy in this weather smile

cafecito Thu 18-Jul-13 02:38:24

cafecito Thu 18-Jul-13 04:15:22

(breakfast time, right?)

starsandunicorns Thu 18-Jul-13 07:21:59

Of course Cafe its the only way grin

Minimammoth Thu 18-Jul-13 08:18:15

Morning. I am still here. Just not been very chatty. I hope Vito comes back too, maybe life is not giving her much time. I hope she has found support in RL.
I watched a bit of apprentice and am hmm this is really not what I would want for women. Couldn't she do something useful. Tell her Cafe.
Hope you can find a peaceful state of mind Stars. Grr to meddling relatives.
I am also grumpy in this weather, so sometimes grumpy lumpy.
Good news though is that the Fluff is doing ok, managing on her 3 working legs and is definitely not dead.

starsandunicorns Thu 18-Jul-13 11:23:49

Good news starlet has got the school she wanted when she comes back from visting friends we be shopping for a blazer and tie first time ever so want the school to do final year school pics now [ grin]

Minimammoth Thu 18-Jul-13 15:17:41

Great news Stars. What colour is the uniform? I remember my enormous blazer that had to last 4 years and us rolling our skirts over at the top to make them mini.

starsandunicorns Thu 18-Jul-13 18:55:03

Lol its white shirts black blazer with a red rowe thing on the breast pocket blk trousers or skirts the girls around wear skirts but starlet wants trouers school tie will depend upon which house she goes into ( hoping for black and green as green her fav colour) I never has blazers the boys did but the didnt anyway off to melt tos too hot

starsandunicorns Thu 18-Jul-13 18:55:49

Rowe = rose

Minimammoth Thu 18-Jul-13 20:03:47

Not too offensive then. In our first year we had to make our own summer uniform. It was a gathered skirt and shapeless top in gingham check. Lordy, the sights we were.

cafecito Thu 18-Jul-13 22:00:28

Oh dear. I went to bed at 8am and totally missed what I should have done at 10. I then somehow managed to bump into the ex's parents... in a vast expanse of open green space in sw London (VAST) where deer roam. How could that have happened. arrrrgh.

yay to starlet school

my uniform was A KILT type of thing, long grey wrap skirt pleated, had to hit between ankle and mid calf. HIDEOUS. I remember wearing normal mini skirt in grey under the hideous thing and whipping it off on the way out of school to avoid the bullying jibes. sigh. house mistress would come around and MEASURE girls skirts to make sure they were just the right level of vile. shirts and blazers all the way. much better than my polyester nightmare at my first school, but that skirt traumatised me deeply grin

Minimammoth Thu 18-Jul-13 22:14:14

Deep sympathy cafe. I can see how that would scar you for life.
Am turning in early, hope the kazoo playing pigeons are quiet tonight.

cafecito Thu 18-Jul-13 22:28:55

hahaha mini grin

goodnight hope you sleep well

starsandunicorns Thu 18-Jul-13 22:31:26

A school near near us which dp and starlet looked round has changed names and uniform and its a grey kilt that was a defo no my school uniform was blue. and my mum made my uniform I had the joy of a wrap over A line skirt pass the knee and the biggest hem ever it took four years till the hem wouldnt go down any ever <joins cafe on the scarred for life seat>

MrsShrek3 Thu 18-Jul-13 22:58:47

my school uniform was evil too. We had to kneel up on the floor to make sure our evil tweed skirt was the right length . eww. no options for trousers, tweed skirts all the way. That scarred for life by uniform bench needs an extension grin

KittyAndTheFontanelles Fri 19-Jul-13 02:04:27

Knee length, fawn coloured socks and 'Jesus boots'. That's right, tan coloured, buckled sandals. shock

I think I win. grin

cafecito Fri 19-Jul-13 02:11:36


kitty! I'm sure you rocked them like a 50sretro 40s-style pin up. mmm jesus boots

I remember I had to wear army boots and got yelled at for not polishing them properly, had to do 150 pushups without stopping for my felony in front of a group of sniggering 14 year olds

cafecito Fri 19-Jul-13 02:12:33

kitty wins. MrsShrek close behind. I am now imagining a combo of all those grin [barf

hope lbkitty and the pudding are well?
