Everyone in my house is asleep: DS and assorted sleepover friends, DH, the cats...

Why the buggery do I wake up so early every day these days? Is it cos I is old?

quite enjoying the silence though.

Badders123 Sat 11-Jun-16 07:24:59

Ds2 been in me since 6
Dh just hit up but doesn't look happy about it grin
Hope it doesn't rain too much today - stuff to dooooo

Badders123 Sat 11-Jun-16 07:50:18

MadamedeChevreuse Sat 11-Jun-16 08:30:33

Wench on, wench on, with smut in your heart, and you'll never wench alone, you'll NEEEEEVER wench alooooooooooone.

Excellent new thread Fancy.

Another one for the office wall there Badderz grin

No idea Only - I am grateful I've not developed the waking up early thing.

Excellent tune there Madame. Bugger to you being at your mum's though. "No Mum, this is the football. It's a new thing they're trying. New look strips too. What's that? Are they not hot running about in all that leather? Oh I do hope so...."

Argh bugger about the football. This will cause distress in the household this evening.

Had a lovely evening out for dinner with DH last night casino. After sports day and last night I have this week discovered I love the tug of war and blackjack.

Consequently DC are not here so I need to go and get food for the weekend and watch Versailles. I had planned to clean the windows for some guests who are coming in 4 weeks.

Work is plodding along nicely for me actually. Just been allocated a new boss who is a woman, a parent and half from a country very near where I am half from. In short, we have bonded. My male boss on the other was the biggest pain in the fucking arse yesterday.

I love this picture and I can hear the dialogue in my head. It is exactly the sort of thing I would say.

I literally cannot wait for tonight. I wonder though if I convince the boys to watch the footie (just go with me wenches) then I can watch TM alone drool and rewatch with them over breakfast.

TheOnlyLivingBoyInNewCross Sat 11-Jun-16 09:48:08

Anne - what's he saying at that moment?

<clearly I need to rewatch: the only show I can fit dialogue to the still for is Buffy>

No-one in my household has the slightest interest in football: yey! But I read yesterday that this year's tournament is longer than previous ones - they have more rounds? or something? Because that's what we want: more football hmm.

Just went into the kitchen to wash up after breakfast and discovered that I had made a crucial mistake half an hour earlier - I had asked DH to get the pastries out of the oven but hadn't followed that up with the explicit instruction to turn the oven off having taken the pastries out of it.


Worthy of an Athos eye-roll, I think.

TheOnlyLivingBoyInNewCross Sat 11-Jun-16 09:50:48

OK: which one of you made this?

Badders123 Sat 11-Jun-16 10:24:19

Thought you might like that letus smile
Love that athos pic!
Off for lunch with various family members for ds1s 13th
Then football awards night
Think of me kindly etc.....

SisterHelenoftheEternalCatchUp Sat 11-Jun-16 11:03:06

LetUs <arf> at Are they not hot running about in all that leather?
<channels Phineas and Ferb> "Yes - yes they are." YLT Very definiately.

Love madame new wenching/footie crossover song.

OnlyBoy I believe that's a Burketeer creation (note gratuitous reference to potatoes) but it is funny.

<herds all wenches back to previous thread to finish that one>

AnneEtAramis Sat 11-Jun-16 11:46:20

Ds1 has decided to record the football and watch The Musketeers.

JacobFryesTopHatLackey Sat 11-Jun-16 11:58:03

Morning wenches

<inserts McNulty shaped placemark>

I love the wench on song.

I have the new Sherlock game and its sexmas so I'll be spending today productively.

FancyFancy Sat 11-Jun-16 12:04:58

Good decision from DS1 there anne, think I shall do the same.

Don't worry onlyboy, when the DC are older the ability to lie in returns. Although tbf, I have never been a morning person so that's not surprising.

ApricotCrush Sat 11-Jun-16 12:12:29

Morning! Very much looking forward to tonight. DH, bless him, says he'll watch the footie until TM starts, and then continue with it afterwards.

Haven't checked the news this morning. No-one important has died have they? My heart was in my mouth yesterday when the Queen was coming down those steps at St. Paul's. hmm

Lovely anthem Madame. grin

ApricotCrush Sat 11-Jun-16 12:16:25

Oh and apparently the TV magazines give a good synopsis of Ep 3 for tonight. T'was to be expected I suppose. hmm

SisterHelenoftheEternalCatchUp Sat 11-Jun-16 12:27:19

Apricot, the TV listings Editors probably hate the BBC schedulers as much as us grin

LetUsPrey Sat 11-Jun-16 13:11:03

Oh my life I just saw an actual trailer for tonight's programme during the actual daytime!

Aramis looked FAFfer than ever. I didn't think it was possible.

Apricot - your concern for the Queen when she was walking down the steps made me grin

Travelledtheworld Sat 11-Jun-16 14:00:29

Just when I thought my life had no meaning I discover that THEY ARE BACK!!!!
Lovely hour doing the ironing and watching Episode 1. Aramis totally delish in Monks robes...does he wear anything underneath ?
And Treville looking fine and dandy with nice haircut, trimmed beared and swaggering blue robes.
Porthole and Athos and sweaty leather...oh it's all too much.

Out tonight so iPlayer catch up of episodes 2&3 will be an extra treat.

WickedWenchOfTheNorth Sat 11-Jun-16 14:05:10

Only oh, you're a Buffy fan too? smile

Apes grin

SisterHelenoftheEternalCatchUp Sat 11-Jun-16 14:19:02

Er... Travelled I hate to be the one to break it to you, but they've only show Ep1 so far. Ep2 is tonight, and you'll have to wait until Monday 20th for Ep3.

Yep - that's right. So far the BBC has given us different screening times / days for each of the first three episodes - and spread them over 4 weeks. This is to foil anyone's plans to build up any sort of momentum of excitement about watching the entire series in a straight uncomplicated run. It's not that I'm averse to a game of 'Hunt the Musketeer'<ylt> Athos is in the Hayloft and I'm keeping him there thank-you-very-much except when I'm making use of him elsewhere but it would be nice if the BBC could manage to put it on at the same time every week.

Wicked aren't we all Buffy fans? shock

FancyFancy Sat 11-Jun-16 15:40:28

Good God letus, a daytime trailer shock

Welcome back travelled - you joined us for s2 if I remember correctly? Ep1 really was a feast of FAFness wasn't it? Has it made you reassess your boffing order? And what's your take on the new villains so far?

DartsTart Sat 11-Jun-16 18:21:15

Hello..... Will join you later - but right now I am at a street party drinking pimms on behalf of the queen

And hello newbies- you are all lovely I am sure but DOG is mine all mine puts out more popcorn for other wenches and rolls back my sleeves........
