It seems the logical move.


DSD sends over 800 texts one month on the phone we pay for <slurp> OH acting like an arse <slurp> Weekend plans changed at last minute <sluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurp> Cook dinner, then OH cooks something else as they 'just fancy xxxxx'

glug, glug, glug, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Red or white??

reddaisy Thu 14-Oct-10 22:00:07

It doesn't matter Petal, either will do wink

cobbledtogether Thu 14-Oct-10 22:07:11

WildistheWind Thu 14-Oct-10 22:24:59

wine o clock I am there!!!! Ah rose, my old friend I have missed you (no I cant afford three hundred pounds for another hour of the lawyer this week darling - I am sorry but it will have to wait) glug, glug, glug.

cobbledtogether Thu 14-Oct-10 23:00:36

oooh haven't had some rose for ages.

Stuff 'Keep Calm and Carry on' Detatch and Drink wine is the way forward!

Petal02 Fri 15-Oct-10 08:34:52

"Keep Calm and Carry On" - I just love that !!! That should be our step-mother's motto.

Red for me - it counts as one of my "5 a day..."

Sushiqueen Fri 15-Oct-10 09:18:40

Can I join?

Even dh has taken to buying me duty free spirits on the way back from his trips abroad

Nice bottle of Pinot waiting for me tonight.

WildistheWind Fri 15-Oct-10 09:38:05

A good bloody mary counts as one of my 5 a day wink
Roll on Friday night!

think I'll have a bottle of something fizzy and a straw - no need for a glass.

cobbledtogether Fri 15-Oct-10 11:50:05

Fizzy with a straw eh?

Well that's helped me plan my Friday night!

foolio Fri 15-Oct-10 13:57:11

BH - it's the best way - saves on the washing up and goes straight to your head!

cobbledtogether Fri 15-Oct-10 14:02:35

I believe I have some jumbo bendy-straws left from DSs party that would easily reach the bottom of a bottle.


Tootingbec Fri 15-Oct-10 14:21:06

Hummmm.......DSD with us this weekend and my second baby is due tomorrow. Think that is enough of an excuse to have a teensy glass of wine tonight?

Petal02 Fri 15-Oct-10 14:50:38

Tootingbec - I hope all goes well with the delivery of your new baby. Just one question: surely the arrival of a new baby is a good enough reason NOT to have DSD this weekend??? Could she not have stayed with her mother on this occasion?? I know it's not quite the same thing, but on the weekend we moved house, it was an access weekend, and it never entered husband's head to change the arrangements. I do sometimes wonder what sort of event would be considered significant enough to reschedule access ?????? More wine, anyone ???

pleasechange Fri 15-Oct-10 14:55:52

Can I join you! Although admittedly I do have a blissful 'free' weekend now which I will savour

tootingbec I managed to negotiate not having the DSSs when I was due to have DS, can you not do similar?

Tootingbec Fri 15-Oct-10 15:00:24

Hello Petal02 - it is only my due date tomorrow - I am not going in for an elective cs or anything so it could be 10 days off for all I know. Anyway, DSD will be shipped off back to her mothers the moment things start to happen.....there is no way I am going to be mooing like a cow in the living room while DSD whines to her father that I am ruining her life because she can't watch the X factor. It's bloody half term anyway so she is going to be hanging about on and off for the next week (same happened when DD1 arrived- coincided with the 'feckin Easter holidays then!).

When is it wine o'clock?

Petal02 Fri 15-Oct-10 15:20:43

Tooting, I'm really pleased she's going to be 'despatched' as soon as things start happening. Even if we had an earthquake, civil war AND a nuclear holocaust, we'd still have to stick to our access pattern ....

cobbledtogether Fri 15-Oct-10 15:28:52

Tootingbec -hope the baby arrives on time and all goes well. I think a small glass is definitely in order. are you sure you don't want DSD there to cut the cord?

Sorry. That was uncalled for and I've just nauseated myself by even suggesting it.

foolio Fri 15-Oct-10 15:38:59

tootingbec - hope all goes well! Your last post really made me laugh!

Babyheave, that is an excellent idea re the bendy straws. I'll be hitting the wine club pretty hard this weekend as DSD is due back - half term was this week where I live so have had a relatively normal week. Back to abnormal on Saturday!

glasscompletelybroken Fri 15-Oct-10 16:51:05

I think a toast to tootingbecs new baby is in order - anyone care to join me?

glasscompletelybroken Fri 15-Oct-10 17:59:55

What is the earliest reasonable time to pour a glass? 6pm?

WildistheWind Fri 15-Oct-10 18:25:46

I raise my glass to TB! Sante!

TGIF night !
