I thought it was time to move over here from Telly Addicts as we're now discussing Joseph the musical, and not Any Dream Will Do. The other thread was about to get too full anyway.

Tut, since you've not got much on you really ought to be lovingly making home made meals!

BoingBoing · 25/07/2007 09:31

Morning lovelies! And what a fine sunny morning it is here....not! Sorry, they made me do some work (for a change) so didn't have time to log on.
So how's it all hanging? I'm going to brave the rain for Heat at luncthime - I couldn't possibly entrust such a job to Jeeves! And DH is away tonight, so can oggle in peace
DS last night also managed to totally shame me in Tesco, yelling out, ad nauseam 'mummy said f f f*'- 'what's that? Cluck dear? Very nice dear'. Does this make me a bad mother?

Berrie · 25/07/2007 09:42

Boing what do you do..or not do?

I think you are a wonderful mother, it is very important to extend your dc's vocabulary whenever you can

Question is...what were you f*ing at?

Berrie · 25/07/2007 09:45

Berrie puts kettle on (again) and offers the last chocolate hob ok don't mind if I do

Berrie · 25/07/2007 09:47

If only I wasn't so busy making coffee, eating biscuits and on Mumsnet, I might get round to some of the ironing.There is just no time to do anything I folded it the other day so that it would fit in the basket better but subsequent washes have it overflowing again...

BoingBoing · 25/07/2007 09:51

Sod the ironing Berrie, it'll only get creased again as soon as it's worn. Have another hobnob.
I work in regional economic development (sort of), so the volume of work depends on what clients etc are up to. Actually, it's pretty interesting and worthwhile stuff, believe it or not.

And I'm not entirely certain, but I think I was f*-ing at some other idiot driver last night who pulled out in front of me on a VERY wet road (either that or DH had annoyed me). I do have a tendency to call bad drivers very rood names

Berrie · 25/07/2007 10:23

Oh and here was me dreaming up some supermarket related disasters...

Only 5 bottles of champers on the shelf...having to be in such a place in the first place because Jeeves was at the dentist...

BoingBoing · 25/07/2007 10:36

No indeed! It was some oik in a beaten up little car, probably untaxed and uninsured and unlicenced getting in the way of my brand new shiny, gas guzzling 4x4 (which obviously, being a woman with a baby in the back I have no idea how to drive properly )

And before you start, no, I don't drive one of those really

Berrie · 25/07/2007 10:51

Of course you don't, chauffeur driven Bently naturally! Jeeves, he's so versatile

Berrie · 25/07/2007 10:57

OK what would your epitaph be everyone?

Mine would be ...Couldn't be arsed!

Berrie · 25/07/2007 10:57

Am feeling a little negative this morning...

BoingBoing · 25/07/2007 11:01

I think mine's now 'f f f*' I'll try to see it in a Father Ted kind of way.

Berrie · 25/07/2007 11:05

Combination of hangover (no grounding end of bottle when drinking from a vat containing sevral gallons),sad discussion with grieving dh last night,MIL recently departed and FIL very poorly in hospital (our excuse for the drinking) and Peed off with brother. His ds is 1 today but they are abroad. I excitedly messengered them this morning hoping to have a video call, having sent a gift, a lovely card, a text, an e-mail only to be told he was too busy to chat (fine) but no word of a thankyou or expression of regret that he couldn't. I was so excited about his first baby's first birthday and so sorry he has no family around him to celebrate. He had just been chatting to my Dad who I had to chivvy to even remember just to send a card. Hmmmm
Sorry...had to rant...just a bit hurt..

BoingBoing · 25/07/2007 11:10

. Family are a nightmare and we all manage to be insensitive to our nearest & dearest in ways we'd never dream of with friends or colleagues. So you're brother needs a good smack bottom for being a git.
And a big hug for your DH as well, as it's such a horrible thing to go through. I don't blame you for getting through a gallon of wine last night, the stress on you must be horrendous.

Berrie · 25/07/2007 11:17

Sigh's with pleasure at thought of someone coming to do ironing. Isn't it sad that my ideas of a treat or luxury are:

Someone to do an oven clean
Someone to steam clean my carpets
Someone to do a spring clean of whole house
Someone to come and do the weeding

I'd rather have this than a day of pampering at a spa! and all because I'm a lazy arse!

BoingBoing · 25/07/2007 11:51

ooh, yes please. But I'd have the spa day too, just to emphasise the point that someone else is working very hard on my behalf. Not to mention allowing me to finish Harry Potter in peace.

[Sigh] I wish I really did have a Jeeves.....

Berrie · 25/07/2007 12:08

Yes but you work...I have no excuse...

Berrie · 25/07/2007 13:18

Here lies the body of Berrie Bloggs
Had a lot of jobs to do at the time she popped her clogs
There was a massive pile of ironing and a mound of dirty clothes but...
In heaven God does the washing while Berrie paints her toes

BoingBoing · 25/07/2007 13:32

There was a young mother called Berrie
Who didn't feel awfully merry
So Boing sent her Jeeves
Her load to relieve
And now she's downing the sherry!

And I did bugger all when I wasn't working too!

Berrie · 25/07/2007 14:02

tee hee

There was a young mother called Boing
Whose Butler walked round in a cloth Loin
His name was Lee Mead
Though she called him Jeeves
Oh how the bed springs did doing!

BoingBoing · 25/07/2007 14:13

Ohhhh, I wiiiiiishhhhhh!!!!

LoonyLyraLovegood · 25/07/2007 16:20

Anyone got a good hangover cure? I'm still suffering and it's gone 4.
I was at a hen night last night and it was all champagne and canapes. It was a good laugh but we all stayed out too late and drank too much and I've been feeling like death warmed up all day. Poor DSs have been watching rather a lot of TV
I'm supposed to be out tonight too, at a do at the House of Commons with DP, but i don't know if i can face yet more champagne.
God, I'm making my life sound so glamorous . I promise you this is not a typical week chez Lyra. Nights out all seem to come at once then nothing for weeks.

BoingBoing · 25/07/2007 16:25

Get you Lyra! And I'm the one that gets it for being 'grand' . It sounds like you've got the solution to the hangover though - just do it all over again.

LoonyLyraLovegood · 25/07/2007 16:31

Urgh, just the thought of more champagne is making me want to puke. I've got 3 hours to cure myself.

LoonyLyraLovegood · 25/07/2007 16:40

Berrie, sorry to hear about your woes. I'd be feeling low too.
