Crepeys do Christmas...(1000 Posts)
The Brora trousers arrived and they are wrong too.... Not sure I've grasped this online shopping too well. I have a day of 'sending back'. The shoes were good though here, though not in this weather.....
All booked for Waterloo Traveldodgy, not one of my usual ones, sad that I am. (This week I experienced the delights of Liverpool Street Traveldodgy).
Still in the grip of mock GCSE's here - we'll be free by the weekend, so we are off to Brighton for a jolly
BD - can you make it? Would be great if you can
It looks like it might be CV ......
You wait all year for a night out, then two come along at once. On the same night. And this one is a company do that I have to organise, so I really have to go to it.
Hi all, sorry can't commit at the moment - need to see how the month pans out! Would love to as I need to convince you all I am not a hairy handed trucker
I did wonder about these here as being a shortarse I have small feet so they would fit, but I can't find any reference to how long they are....
Well if the predicted snow happens it looks like this weekend will be called off, by the end of which dp will be sick of me and I might get a late pass for 8th Feb!
Ruby have swapped boots..,
Let's hope the snow doesn't dampen our meet up.... Does anyone have any yet?
It's all blahblahblah about snow here and people were out panic-buying groceries this afternoon. However, there is no actual snow - yet. And it feels a bit warm and is raining. I will be damn surprised if we wake up to the predicted blizzard tomorrow. Almost hope we do have some of the white stuff as otherwise the dcs will be v. cross. The south coast of England does not ever tend to get much in the way of snow. No winter wonderland for us. It's more Mud World.
Have now booked my train tickets for Feb 8th, so there'd better blardy not be any inclement weather upsetting Southwest Trains that w/e..
It was snow-talk all day at work today; no flakes as yet (apart from a light dusting earlier in the week). DS/DD1's school have already said they're closing at 1.10pm tomorrow, and DD2's school have said we can collect early if we want, so obviously they are expecting the worst. DS is supposed to be going to a sleepover about ten miles away, but (funnily enough) does not seem concerned about the fact that it may be Monday before I can pick him up.
I'm a bit as I had planned to go shopping in Kingston tomorrow. If it is not actually snowing after the school run I will attempt a quick trip. I'm trying not to think about my next-door neighbour who, in last year's snow, thought he'd "pop down the road to Homebase" and got home nine hours later.
Snowed overnight, but not the expected down pour yet. I suspect I could get in, my concern would be getting back - 2 hour (min) walk from station does not appeal. I think I'll WFH. Dp has cancelled his class so isn't going in/ getting up. Ds is living in hope as he has heard all these stories about sledging....
Ds's school is closed...still snowing...excitement mounts...
Boots have arrived ... Much better!
Matching boots I liked the ones you bought, but weren't they calf high too?
New ones are much better for skirts/dresses. I lurve these in a totally impractical, I want to wear frivolous shoes way.
BD, like those purple ones! DH wouldn't dream of wearing boots (other than for hiking/snow) - he is not very adventurous when it comes to clothes!
Ruby, I am sticking to it fairly well (despite the constant stream of biscuits, etc at work/meetings!), but only 10 days in so far!
No snow here, but DC are hoping that it will fall heavily this morning (and so am I!) so they get sent home (and my pupils too!). DH went off on his bike We have a brand new sledge here that I bought last year in preparation for the snow, and then there wasn't any
BTM they are a bit lush aren't they? I don't know whether to think 'sod it' and buy them as I am generally erm very 'practical' in my purchases
I have cut down on the alcohol and bug carbs and whilst I wouldn't go as far as saying the weight is dropping off me, there has been less bloating, and a little more wiggle room in the trousers ;)
Plenty of snow here, all schools closed. Dog gone mental with excitement. i have a job to finish and send to the customer - who is sitting in Vienna with 60cms of snow on their office balcony. Strangely enough, her kids are still going to school. Off sledging later. No worries BTM, you are bound to get plenty of this white stuff in an hour or two.
Sorry I won't make the yak-fest - we'll be at the I Fagiolini concert at Cadogan Hall. Next time, though.
