Love that herbs....perfect answer for the JW's

It's tipping down here in soaked again.

bigTillyMint Sat 13-Apr-13 13:13:33

Herbs, it's hoaching with Jeehovah's here! Neighbours and their merry squad. I just point at the church and tell them it's our place of worship though only on Christmas Day now blush

Love both the dresses, especially the silvery one, and the names are very crepeyfiedgrin

Or I liked this...

QueenQueenie Sat 13-Apr-13 12:50:47

that's really rather nice MI, but you might want to stand out in something brighter when you're the star of the show / birthday girl?

motherinferior Sat 13-Apr-13 12:13:56

I could just go for something like this...?

I only said one layer, QQ.

Am looking online while supposed to be writing a feature for a Naice Dress to wear to my birthday party. Something fetching, possibly black or purple, which shows my cleavage assets to best advantage...

I am not wearing thermals! And haven't done so for the past few days! I'm about to undertake some 'gardening', so we'll see how that goes.

Just saw off some Jehovah's Witnesses on the doorstep. She asked me what I believe, and I said: "I don't believe in anything. We're here purely by chance, and we have to make the most of it until we die. After that there's nothing."

She looked a bit blank, and said: "That's not what the bible says."

Me: "I don't care what the bible says. It was written in the dark ages when we knew nothing about anything."

She left!

you don't sew yourself into them then 'til the end of May then MI?

motherinferior Sat 13-Apr-13 10:57:36

I have removed one layer of winter vest <daring>

bigTillyMint Sat 13-Apr-13 10:52:12

Queenie, are you mad? It's bloody freeeeezing here in London!

I can't believe all the fuss about her either - and that's just half an hour of BBC news whilst I was in the gym (bloody hard work after nearly 3 weeks of doing bugger all) - jet-lag hit us all and we were all up at 7am this morning!!!

In other news, DS's footy boots have gone missing. This is a major calamity. He had to wear DH's for training this morningshock

QueenQueenie Sat 13-Apr-13 10:37:02

Tried to namechange to "Queen of Procrastination"... but it was taken grin

motherinferior Sat 13-Apr-13 10:23:32

MrsS, d'you need me to nip to H&M for you or something? Or do you want to order anything off the website to be delivered here?

In other news, yet another agent has rejected my book.

QQ, I sang Stand Down Margaret grin

QueenQueenie Sat 13-Apr-13 10:05:34

Feel out of touch...

BD, I knew you were off on hols but where are you? Are the goats in the trees? (because they do that you know!)
Ruby, dog nappies? Why? Why?

Mrs S. Very sorry to read about your aunt.

Can't believe the sky here in London is blue today, with currently no signs of rain or snow. On an s and b note I might try not wearing a jumper and winter coat or is that going too far?

DS1 still revising frantically (and to my mind impressively since he hasn't inherited this level of application and focus from me, the queen of procrastination, oh no). DS2 polishing his loafing and PS3 skills. All well.

I'd like you to know how zeitgeisty(?) I am. On hearing of the demise of Thatcher I sang "Ding Dong the witch is dead". Spooky. Can't believe all the bloody fuss and carry on.

Nappies for dogs? hmm

Am going to have to go and find something suitable to wear for DD2 for the funeral. DD1 is OK as she has her "concert dress." DD2 does not enjoy shopping at the best of times. I am thinking leggings and a tunicky thing of some description in a sort of muted colour. I think she has a reasonably smart grey/blue jacket somewhere, so maybe we can build on that.

MrsS sorry to hear about your aunt.

Stropps what were you doing in Borneo for 2 years?

Here the sun is out, the sky blue, the sea bloody freezing and there are goats, lots of them, everywhere....but no goat on the menu...

alto1 Fri 12-Apr-13 19:54:30

MrsS, sorry to hear of the loss of your aunt. I think it's a credit to her (and her husband) that they could have a shattering row when they both knew she was dying. Better surely, than being false and inhibited with each other. That would be like being half dead before you go.

beachyhead Fri 12-Apr-13 09:00:32

Sorry to hear your news Mrs S.. At home and peaceful is the way to go. My mother did that, peacefully at home, windows open in the middle of summer.

Everyone deserves a good death.

hattymattie Fri 12-Apr-13 06:21:40

sad Mrs S.

bigTillyMint Fri 12-Apr-13 00:46:16

MrsS so sorry to hear about your aunt. And sad for her DH.

CointreauVersial Fri 12-Apr-13 00:14:24

I have to say, as good deaths go, old Maggie didn't do badly - lying in bed in The Ritz, reading a book. smile

Cremolafoam Thu 11-Apr-13 23:01:03

Ah mrs S very sorry to hear about your aunts death. I'm sure it was quite a shock that it came sooner than very sad.
I do hope you're feeling better after the high temp bug too.
Take care.thanks
