Shop grin

QueenCadbury Thu 31-Oct-13 21:27:02

shop I'm a scarcedy cat with travel sickness, so no, I gve all roller coasters a miss! Dh and dd went on one though. How on earth did you do a ride 10 times?? I think we only did 10 in total as the queues were huge.

Drywhiteplease Thu 31-Oct-13 22:03:53

Making place.....watching Les Mis (3rd time about to kill self!) with DS and DBIL .
Scented sparky finished the job sad, good news is that he has to come back to sort out a socket grin........
DH out in fab restaurant in Shoredich tonight I'm not jealous
Loads of trick or treaters this evening.
Shop your birthday sounds great
Mig what an impressive DH ....of to see arms........

Drywhiteplease Thu 31-Oct-13 22:04:25

QC so gals you had a great time x

mignonnette Thu 31-Oct-13 22:10:21

Can i just recommend a lovely thing to eat? Am on another course of antibiotics and feeling crap but heated up half a tub of Yorkshire Provender red pepper, tomato and cheese soup and it is nectar of the Gods. Little pieces of melty cheese in it yum.

Dry - Le Mis made me want to shoot myself in the eyeballs. Never got past the first fifteen minutes smile.

No trick or treaters...Think our house looks too forbidding hmm.

Happy Birthday Shop. How did I miss that earlier- sorry flowers

libertychick Thu 31-Oct-13 22:21:31

<Quick wave> sorry not contributing much - v tired.
Glad you had such a good time QueenC
Mig love the Gap chambray shirt - I think Dona had something similar last year.

mignonnette Thu 31-Oct-13 22:36:59

Whatever happened to Dona Liberty?

Hope you feel better soon. I take it work is battering you a bit?

AmberNectarine Thu 31-Oct-13 23:05:19

Mig we go to Winter Wonderland on my birthday (19 Dec) every year - it's tradition. I think it's great, really atmospheric the skating and ice caves are great, the German Christmas market is lovely to browse and there are Bratwurst and mulled wine aplenty. And only a hop, skip and a jump from Harvey Nics - what's not to like??

Welcome back queenC hope you and the family had a lovely time!

No secret sale invite here. My Loubs are actually uncomfortable bastards so no great loss. Am thinking of making a little luxury purchase to tide me over till the bag buy - will link if/when I do it!

Amber my DDs birthday.....

FASHION news.....when you buy a pair of boots in sale in a size bigger than your normal size hoping they might just fit, they won't. Back they go.

Annianni Thu 31-Oct-13 23:19:24

Dry... stop buying boots! grin
Do you still want black bikers?

So the smaller size navy Boden jumper arrived...

And it's a bit boring and fitted in the smaller size.
So I've ordered the larger size again, but in the pale grey this time.
I'm hoping the paler colour will look nice looser... I had one of those £10 vouchers to use, so I thought I'd give it a try.

Mig, Dona was around on a NC a while ago.
Not sure if she's still about though.
Loving those photos of your dh wink

I remember watching a very nice <swoon> tv thing a few years ago, about ballet boys/men.
Their physique... goes for a lie down... phwoar...

Annianni Thu 31-Oct-13 23:20:49

I've never watched Les Mis.
Seeing Wolverine singing just seems wrong to me!

Drywhiteplease Thu 31-Oct-13 23:24:48

Anni seem to remember you went boot bonkers a while back!!!! But yes, will stop now and I'm going to be SENSIBLE and save for the J crew coat I'm coveting needs to find a US visitor.
Les MIs is a fantastic film, Hugh Jackman is surprisingly brilliant and well cast and can really sing, as can Eddie Redmayne . However you only need to see it once (on a big screen only to get full impact)....three times is just too much misery grin

Annianni Thu 31-Oct-13 23:26:20

Oh, random question alert...

Ds1 would like a microscope for Christmas off my mother, but I have to source the damn thing
He has requested a real one, not a toy one.

Any suggestions on where to look?
Not too £££ obviously, as he's 9 and I dread to think what he'll be examining...

LinusDKD Fri 01-Nov-13 07:30:51


Ah Les Mis. A friend took me to see the musical when I was a student in London. He raved about it (he had seen it a gazillion times, all over the world) so I thought I was in for a treat.

That's 2 hours more like 24 hours of my life I'll never get back.

When I say this to people they look at me like I am some baby eating monster, but I really hated it.

Needless to say I haven't seen the film. wink

Today I am wearing my teal DKNY dress toughend up with my bikers.

QueenCadbury Fri 01-Nov-13 08:11:29

Being the lazy arse I am, I can't be bothered to read the past thread but I'm intrigued to know what shops birthday plans are. Can't believe that mine is tomorrow!!

PIL have given me £100 for my birthday. I'm going to do the style day with hopefully but I just need to sweet talk dh as there's a day in December that I could do if he agrees.

Don't think dona is around anymore. She was frugalfashionista but then weaned herself off shopping/clothes etc so I'm not sure that she posts anymore.

Good afternoon Voguettes. My week is done. I have 7 hours to kill till flight. Guess what? Am too exhausted to shop!

shopafrolic Fri 01-Nov-13 09:03:01

Anni the Science Museum have a range of things like that. Boxed toys. Think they used to sell them in Debenhams and Amazon
QueenC lazy. Out with a girlfriend for dinner tonight, family lunch at gastropub tonight, champagne breakfast at posh hotel on the day with a girlfriend, dinner with DH that night. Low key on previous years!
ILs leave today. I am down two wine glasses, a pair of rubber gloves and my sanity. Sounds just like the old days. Oh, and I walked in on FIL having a wee in our outside toilet with the door wide open eew
Dry J Crew opens here next week.....

shopafrolic Fri 01-Nov-13 09:04:11

MarshaBrady Fri 01-Nov-13 09:10:04

Good morning voguettes.

Last day of half term here. Dc have done the 'big tip' with the lego, hopefully will keep them amused for a while.

noviceoftheday Fri 01-Nov-13 09:10:14
