Dinosaur, emsiewill and I have started an exclusive clique based on our mutual credentials of recently sustaining slide-related minor injuries. See here to see the birth of the clique, if desired . Post here with details of your qualifications and we will consider whether to allow you entry to our clique. Please note- injuries inflicted from swings or roundabouts will NOT be considered.

can you tell I am demob happy, having waved my kids off to visit their grandparents in N Wales for a week...

kimi · 19/08/2006 12:55

Fell off a slide and knocked out front teeth, was only 5 at the time, but remember mum being really mad with dad for not watching me, and getting to eat strawberry icecream to take swelling out of lips.

Can i join?

emsiewill · 19/08/2006 12:57

Well kimi, it depends how old you are now, really - was the age of 5 "recent" for you?

kimi · 19/08/2006 13:33

Bugger thought i vould slip in un detected, no im 35 now

Tommy · 19/08/2006 13:38

a couple of years ago I guess... does that mean I'm not allowed in?!

emsiewill · 19/08/2006 13:41

"couple of years" perhaps more acceptable than 30! I think you should be allowed in.

I am feeling a little uneasy with the power I am wielding, and have to log off now. All further recently sustained slide-related minor injury clique wanabees will have to wait for now.

Thread hijack:

Greeny, you went to Watermouth Castle! Was it the Watermouth Castle that my parents used to take us to as children?

Is there a Gnome World and a scary dungeon? God, I loved that place!

kimi · 19/08/2006 13:59

Ive been to Watermouth castle, can we start a clique of people who have been there????

emsiewill · 19/08/2006 14:01

OI.

Start your own thread for your (frankly inferior) castle-attending clique.

Can i bribe my way in with chocolate???

Tommy · 19/08/2006 14:42

phew!
I've made it into a clique - at last

emsiewill · 19/08/2006 16:04

Bribe your way in?!?!? How very dare you. We are a clique of integrity, and cannot be bought with your shameful offers of chocolate.

kimi · 19/08/2006 17:16

I can see there is no winning here, so i am off to the park with my camcorder to play on the slides!!!
I may look stupid though as both my children are away this week.

Blandmum · 19/08/2006 17:33

THis summer I have been stung on the mouth by a wasp, trodden on another bastard wasp, had boiling water poured over my foot (same foot), been bitten (on the same foot) by a mozzie.

My right foot claims a place in the clique

Cam · 19/08/2006 17:37

Just over a week ago I saw a neighbour's child's friend fall off a rope swing attached to a tree and almost split his head open?


I must surely qualify, Scummymummy?

kimi · 19/08/2006 17:46

Oh i did burn my arm on the iron a few weeks ago, any good?

sober now...you rock.

BlueBeetle · 19/08/2006 17:51

Can someone please list who's in the clique before I decide whether to join or not ? There are some cliques here unworthy of my presence and I just want to be sure you understand !

So far I am liking the people here - but it won't be long before there are "others" trying to barge in with their gutter manners !!

PinkTulips · 19/08/2006 17:52

i broke my ribs (and almost my nose) when i was 18 by trying to go down a slide standing up and yelling yabba-dabba-doo in fred flintstone style got as far as 'ya...' before i went over the side. i don't need to point out i was drunk do i?!

do i qualify?

PinkTulips · 19/08/2006 17:57

oh, and i'm only 22 so this was recent enough.

can i join, i've never been in a cliqueeither and i do so want to be. please? pretty please? pretty please with a cherry on top?

Cam · 19/08/2006 17:59

Oh and what about the time I picked dd (aged 9 months at the time) up from a slide at a soft play centre milliseconds before a ghastly 2 year old boy came down wearing Kickers. His boots were nanoseconds from her head?


Hey? Hey?

i camped at les mouettes last year in france and did this everyday.

the reason you should let me in is becuase i had to beg children to go on slides with me so i didn't look stupid being giddy, fat and old. i oviously need a child to 'accompany'
