Instead of a Friday thread shall we enter the public bar of our new pub?

All the usual refreshments and bar snacks. All tastes catered for.

For anyone puzzled by honking here is the original goose quote

<pulls up a bar stool to reserve for later> <changes mind and flops onto a large sofa in the corner>

I shall actually be drinking real wine this evening in celebration of ds1's good news. grin

This thread, for anyone who missed this thread is a way to extend the Friday threads into an ongoing area for general chitchat and whatever anyone here wants to discuss over a pint or few.

PolterGoose Fri 15-Mar-13 13:54:45

I'll join you on the sofa moose I've done 2 real live social things this week (which only involved going for coffee) and I'm bloody knackered grin

signandsmile Fri 15-Mar-13 13:56:46

oo oo! sign surveys the decor, yep think I could be comfy here...

Can I make a confession... blush I am a bit of a techno dufuss, I was reading the whole chat thread bit and not really understanding what will be where... up to know I go straight to MNSN;children, will I need to go somewhere else as well? instead??

ps I have thorntons chocs to share....

<skooshes up for Polter>

I have been out 3 - count them - 3 whole times this week and not one of them was a medical or educational appointment! shock I've managed a meal in an actual restaurant (breakfast but a meal nontheless) and had three inches cut off my hair and finally got a fringe.

I am now officially knackered and will need the whole weekend to recover! blush

signandsmile Fri 15-Mar-13 13:58:28

ah cross post, thanks for the explanation polter.. I think I will join moose on the sofa,

TheNinjaGooseIsOnAMission Fri 15-Mar-13 13:58:54

ooooh hello brew for all, will get the gin out later!

moosemama Fri 15-Mar-13 13:59:46

Haven't a clue sign, I just found this under MNSN children. confused

I am in a chocolate free house today. That is soooo not on for a Friday. hmm

PolterGoose Fri 15-Mar-13 13:59:49

sign I suspect it may take time for any new boards to be created and we will make sure you don't get lost.

moosemama Fri 15-Mar-13 14:01:00

Gin you say? Now there's a thought. <strokes chin and weighs up nice bottle of red against the as yet unopened Junipero>

I will have a brew with you for now though.

PolterGoose Fri 15-Mar-13 14:01:35

This thread is just a normal thread in MNSN children, I just unilaterally decided to re-name the Friday thread blush

PolterGoose Fri 15-Mar-13 14:03:14

Well done on the outings moose breakfast out sounds divine

TheNinjaGooseIsOnAMission Fri 15-Mar-13 14:03:33

ds2 has a delightful ear infection meaning none of us are getting much sleep, I fully expect to be snoring on the sofa quite early tonight so may have to open the gin soon <tempts moose>

kinkyfuckery Fri 15-Mar-13 14:05:06

How has everyone's weeks been?

I had a phone call from DLA this week asking about DD's overnight care needs and if she gets any additional help at school and if I think it would benefit her.
I'm hoping it's to determine which level care we might get, and not if we will get it at all blush

moosemama Fri 15-Mar-13 14:06:30

grin I fear a gin now would mean three dcs stood in the rain at the school gates at 3.15 wondering where their mother is!

PolterGoose Fri 15-Mar-13 14:07:32

Hoping mini-Ninja gets well soon thanks

Good luck with the DLA kinky, I am still avoiding filling out ds's renewal form blush

moosemama Fri 15-Mar-13 14:07:37

Oops, sorry to hear about ds2's ear infection. Hope he's better soon.

Hi kinky, fingers crossed the phone call was for deciding a higher rate of DLA for you.

hazeyjane Fri 15-Mar-13 14:09:21


said in the style of Cheers bar, when Norm walks in.

Hello everyone, quick post here, getting house ready for dd1 and dd2 and 2 friends to come back for a little birthday tea for dd1 who is 7 today!!! I have made gluten free pizza and a gluten free chocolate cake, decorated with 'cloud bunnies'.

I am pouring strong coffee down my neck atm, after a 4 am start with ds, but will be on pink champagne later (traditional on dd1's birthday, gets rogressively cheaper with each child - dd2's birthday is cava or prosecco, ds is any available booze).

kinkyfuckery Fri 15-Mar-13 14:09:59

Ear infections are the work of the devil! We've not had one here in a long time, but I know I've just tempted fate by saying that!

Bluebirdonmyshoulder Fri 15-Mar-13 14:10:36

Bloody marvellous idea and love the name of our local!

<plonks self at the bar and orders a pint of cloudy cider and some pork scratchings>

I take it we have a real fire and a resident Labrador? Right, I feel very settled, I'm going to get royally drunk.

TheNinjaGooseIsOnAMission Fri 15-Mar-13 14:10:37

ah, I don't have an afternoon school run currently grin he's his usual 3 year old self during the day, just unsettled at night <sigh>

PolterGoose Fri 15-Mar-13 14:11:26

Happy Birthday mini-hazey thanks

TheNinjaGooseIsOnAMission Fri 15-Mar-13 14:12:25

now I'm quite partial to a drop of cider too <torn>
