Interesting week.

Got an absolute pasting on AIBU.

Got an independent expert in to see ds who confirmed he is in the right placement (after a year of him being there). Not perfect and room for improvement, but generally a good place full of kind, caring and keen staff who are open and non-defensive.

DS had a grommet operation on Monday, DD finally got her ENT appointment through for in a couple of weeks after I called and queried if they really meant April.

DH came home early with a sickness bug.

Star - I don't believe a word of it.

It's not so much how I look - although I will admit to that being part of it - it's more social nervousness. Traits? Moi ... well ...

I even chickened out of the Attwood conference and I really wanted to go to that. blush

Fortunately, it worked out quite well as I would have paid and then been too ill to go anyway.

Ha ha. Well lots of us are used to communicating with people with 'alternative' ways.

Honestly, when ds had his General Anaesthetic on Monday and was asleep, I was just about to walk off when the doctor said 'right, give him a kiss before you go' and I stared at him thinking 'erm - oh, okay', because me and ds don't DO kisses. He's taught me how to parent him, and it definately doesn't include kisses.

Tape measures on the other hand........

Aw Moose, - no-one would have known who you were anyway!?

And besides, it's scary for all of us.

I'll never forget meeting bialy for the first time. My first words to her were 'erm, did you have a go at me this morning?'

Probably not the best opening line........

StarlightMcKenzie Fri 08-Feb-13 21:59:33

Bluebird You have to start an AIBU. It's a kind of induction. Go on, - I dare you.....

moosemama Fri 08-Feb-13 22:00:46


Well, I suppose at least no-one would mind if I had poor eye contact! grin

Maybe I could just sit in a tent and pass messages through the flysheet?

moosemama Fri 08-Feb-13 22:06:43

Of all the people on this board Star, you are the one I would be most terrified of meeting. I always feel distinctly ditsy whenever we are on the same thread discussing something important. You on the other hand are always so eloquent and able to get straight to the heart of the matter.

Of course having a shedload of holes in my brain doesn't help much on the thinking front. The number of times I've been desperately trying to get an idea to form, only to finally get it a few hours later and find the thread has moved on - it's most frustrating I tell ya!

NoHaudinMaWheest Fri 08-Feb-13 22:15:07

Moose you underestimate yourself. Lots of your contributions are very eloquent and well thought out. Though I do get the bit about threads moving on. I do my best thinking while empting the dishwasher or something and then I either can't get back to the pc or everyone else has moved on. Or some days I want to type something but just can't get brain and energy together.

Thank you NoHaudin, you are very kind.

Your last sentence sums up my problem. I tend to post sporadically these days - while I can actually manage to form a fully fledged thought or idea. I find it really frustrating, as, as you can probably tell from the length of my posts - I have never been a woman of few words!

'You on the other hand are always so eloquent and able to get straight to the heart of the matter.'

LOL. I always feel the same about you. In fact, I think you're much less hit and miss than me.

And also, you are quite right to find me scary, because so many people who have met me have said 'oh, you're not scary in real life', so, you know, until you've met me I MUST SEEM scary, - which is a shame that I'm not in rl and probably explains why I got so much shit from LA people in meetings and had to switch to writing to them instead.

moosemama Fri 08-Feb-13 22:31:27

Polter, you are also very kind.

Maybe I will pluck up courage one day - although I don't actually live anywhere near many other MNSNers so have a good excuse for hiding.

moosemama Fri 08-Feb-13 22:34:10

Polter - agreed. Let's stop now shall we before I have to go and hide again. grin

I stand by what I said about Star being eloquent and on the ball though. <runs>

zzzzz Fri 08-Feb-13 22:45:02

moose. I like your posts you goon. I think you are forgetting that you are among "like minded" people wink

It is amazingly peaceful to be with geese.

You could just come and camp and pretend to be non-goose, till you can't resist are allure! grin

MareeyaDolores Fri 08-Feb-13 22:54:46

Ah, a RL evening with the geese, wine and no-one bothering to pretend to be totally NT....
I'll be in the loo a bit too often, so I can blush privately about some inane comment I made which no-one else will have even noticed [nearly inappropriately mentions pelvic floor weakness emoticon] [oops- off to blush in loo emoticon]

moosemama Fri 08-Feb-13 23:03:49

Ooo zzzzz the allure - you seem to have come over all 'Miranda'. grin

Mareeya, you just made me laugh. I was watching an old episode of the comedy 'Dinnerladies' earlier and they were going on about how Jean always managed to bring her 'plumbing' into the conversation at inopportune moments. grin

ps I'll be hiding in the next cubicle. wink

Right folks - that's it for me, I am at the stage of requiring matchsticks for my eyelids and will be regretting it tomorrow if I don't give in and go to sleep.

Night all.

MareeyaDolores Fri 08-Feb-13 23:08:15

[head under wing]

EllenJaneisstillnotmyname Fri 08-Feb-13 23:24:39

I'll have you know I'm perfectly NT, it's all in ex dickhead's genes. You'll never catch me reading the phone book, oh no! blush
