wine cake flowers for Rose the birthday girl.

I don't think we're friends on FB, but I have 2 others who have birthdays today, so you must be a REALLY lovely person grin

Thanks for the new thread and all the lovely messages. We are at the V&A and have been at "You say you want a revolution" exhibition which I have really enjoyed and recommend highly. Towards the end I felt quite choked... just lounging in the Woodstock room. Can't quite get my thoughts together but I think it's about how in reality we have no freedom now, in spite of all the technology, everyone having their say somewhere or other, everyone alleging that they can be who they are (and if they don't know who that is, then inventing it...) ...Dunno
Anyway, eating a delicious lunch and then off to buy me a watch. DH is trying. That's all I ever wanted. Some effort. Some forethought. The money is pretty irrelevant although it helps So Crepeys I would say it's worth keeping up the pressure and kicking off if they don't show caring on special days. After all when we just smile stoically and pretend to be happy for the greater good, no one really benefits in the long run.
For the record today I have also received scatter cushions from the DC, a JL voucher from DM, a cheque from DPILs, a reed diffuser from DDis and a silver vintage Lobby phone also from DH which I was eyeing up in JL some weeks ago.
And he and DD have made a cottage pie in advance for tonight so I don't have to cook.
Keep up the pressure, y'all hear? Don't be invisible!

ACloudCoosHi Mon 23-Jan-17 14:52:54

Rose - I think I've found you. You do indeed look lovely...

Collymollypuff Mon 23-Jan-17 15:10:11

Sounds fab, Rose! Well done for putting in the effort, I hear ya.

Thanks for the new thread, CV. Love it. grin

Lalsy Mon 23-Jan-17 15:15:21

S London crepesters, have any of you got rid of a car (legally, responsibly, environmentally etc), probably for scrap? Ours is so old the sites where you put in its reg number don't work, we probably won't replace it at least straight away, and I am not minded to trust the places round here automatically. I've just emailed one of the charities that claim to do this.

SpongeBobJudgeyPants Mon 23-Jan-17 15:23:43

Please can I join? smile

motherinferior Mon 23-Jan-17 15:24:17

Of course you can!

bigTillyMint Mon 23-Jan-17 15:27:42

Great thread title, CV!

Glad you're happy with your DHs birthday efforts Rose - sounds way in advance of anything mine could manage!

Here I am slightly worried sick as the new treatment plan for DS is not going as smoothly as it seemed to last week confused

motherinferior Mon 23-Jan-17 15:37:57

Oh BUGGER, BTM. Anything specific (that you're happy to talk about here)?

I am being dazzled by the 25 per cent off into thinking this won't make me look like a sack. Please send help.

motherinferior Mon 23-Jan-17 15:40:51

(especially since the reduction is only till the end of today!)

GiddyGiddyGoat Mon 23-Jan-17 15:45:51

Rushing in to placemark for later...

Nice colour MI but a bit shapeless. It will swamp you I fear.


BeachysSnowyWellieBoots Mon 23-Jan-17 15:54:11

Bummer about treatment plan, BTM - I guess that doesn't mean it won't work next week, hopefully.....

I'm not sure on jumper dresses anymore - they tend to be a bit 'nippley' on me grin

Hello, Sponge Bob......

Could I also point out that it is past 4pm AND IT'S STILL LIGHT OUTSIDE... onwards and upwards.

NUFC69 Mon 23-Jan-17 16:18:20

Happy birthday, Rose. You sound as if you are having a lovely day - it's good to hear that DH has stepped up to the mark.

Sorry about DS, BTM. Let's hope it is just a temporary blip.

Spongebob, hello.

How are you today, Crem?

Glad to hear that you are enjoying Seahouses, Addle. I am so glad that the weather has improved today as it was pretty grim over the weekend. We went to Blyth on Sunday morning for a brief walk and there were actually people surfing, including one hardy soul who was only wearing a swimsuit. Brrr.

I have at least joined Planet People today as I have dropped down the tablets somewhat. I still have no appetite so food consumption is low (not a bad thing considering how my weight has ballooned over the last year).

Blackduck Mon 23-Jan-17 16:31:46

Oh BTM sad

Rose does indeed sound like a lovely day!

Slumped on the bed with Aphra Behn, having caught up on Apple Tree Yard - hmm not sure really - and Taboo which is just bonkers....

MrsS do you have another interview this week?

Welcome Bob

Lalsy Mon 23-Jan-17 16:47:35

BTM, sad.......

MI, I like that but think I agree with GGG. Lovely colour tho.
