~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Dragons and Danielle~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Lots of supportive vibes for you all, waiting eagerly for news.
Oh Podds, you really are wonderful! Not only can you sort a washing machine (on top of all your other talents) but you have such a sane sense of priorities: "sod the fresh stuff I'm out of diet coke - way more important" Too right!!
Daffs, treble points for going in the snow, for sure! As a reward, in your case I would advise about half an hour of tidying, then a long bath and a leisurely evening, going to bed exactly when you want to!!
Yums, you are smart not to venture out on two wheels in this weather. Hope whatever falls tonight doesn't ruin your plans for tomorrow, tho---maybe you can switch the planned activity to a snowball fight? And I agree re LA, it's truly sad that he's queered his own pitch for life, but I honestly see no way back for him.
Good news: it's been raining all day and the roads are now pretty good, although our little lane is still icy. Bad news: more snow tonight. Worse news: NL is getting more snow and average temps of -10---brrrr for B2! Best news: chances for the Elfstedentocht are looking good!
We managed to get to the little town for fresh stuff. It's a very small community and people know us now so it's really nice to meet so many friends. And we have plenty now for several days. We might get to church tomorrow, but if it snows a lot, I'm voting NO!
Well done to everyone who has run in the snow. Gold stars all round!
Great snow-clearing Noggy (((Noggy's GD))) if only her parents realised the harm they are doing!
~~~(((Dragon family)))~~~ I hope that things go smoothly.
I must admit that I had always hoped that LD was clean, despite appearances to the contrary. His half-hearted apology won't have won him any friends - but I don't suppose he cares much about that.
Yummy, I'm glad you decided not to cycle. Here's hoping that you are able to get out and have fun tomorrow.
Alfie goes out for a few minutes at a time, but soon comes back. He does love to get out, I'm seriously wondering whether it would be fair to move him into an upstairs flat
MS took me down to Sainsbury's for a few bits of shopping. The roads seem OK and it is gradually thawing further. I am taking SM out for a cuppa as I know she will be disappointed that SB was not able to get here. Never mind, we still have it to look forward to (hopefully next weekend). Then it will be an evening of snuggling up and watching carp TV. This is one of the few ocassions that I would love a hot bath - but, even if I managed to get in, it is a 3 man job to get me out again. Maybe I should consider it after all
Be careful what you wish for, Sluggles. Mrs XB once volunteered to be lifted out of a building by a fireman on a fire drill. She was most disappointed to get one that looked more like me than like Clive Owen.
I've just been sledging. I took a tumble on my 2nd run and now I have a buttock that requires rubbing. On a positive note, the girls found a good slope that I can use for hill repeats.
Nicely run Spencey and Daffy. I went out to do a couple of miles then decided that it wouldn't do so took a right and carried on round the big block and logged 7 lovely miles.
running in the snow certainly earns double brownie training points or two slices of cake if you're Daffy.
Two miles wouldn't do so you did 7, XB? Show off I think it only fair that M...eldy sorts out your buttock as you did offer to rub her chest and glutes
Awww, sluggy, you'll just have to move to a ground floor flap - a cat flap in a top floor flat is a very bad idea! Hope SM is doing well and not too long to wait to see SB and SBGF
Noggs, is it the drugs that make GD parents such a pair of wazzacks? Or would they be selfish idiots without them anyway ?
Podds, a dire emergency if you're out ok coke - I hope you didn't take the wrong turn and end up in the choklit aisle by accident
LOL Spence - poor woman, prolly thought you were lebanese
Chuggy, I'm sure God will be grateful if you stay at home as he's got enough to do trying to keep people safe this weather and it's his day off- mind you, he shouldn't have sent the snow.
I have tried to pass my time well but ended up walking the dog twice, visiting butcher, baker, veg box, cleaning, stripping beds and meditating and now with the sun past the yard arm, drinking wine - hoorah
C'mon Sue, I'm in suspenders waiting for news of dragon jnr and baby dragon
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~dragon baby and danielle~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Evening allI am watching Winterwatch 1963 ... I bet they didnt close the schools then!! Did they XB? Noggs ??? Spence ? I have done 1hr20 on my mountain bike in the snow, 40 mins run in the snow and an hour in the gym core & weights to warm up and then I cycled home again and got frozzid!!Great Expectations as Dragon lady ?!!Spence you tell that Dotty Dog she's a wuss !
My mum says she remembers it ....A few people these days should watch this
My mum remembered the buses being off and them having to walk home from my "aunties" on a Sunday evening. I think this was the time that they saw the first mini skirt and my dad saying "look at what she's wearing!!!" and my mum telling him to never mind but help her push the pram (with me in it!)
My mother used to spin a yarn about walking up the road after the school bus dropped her in the village .. it was a long old lane up to nans house and I cycled it one day in later years and I cant say I fancy walking up it every day !!
Just popped in to see if there was any news on the newest little Dragon, but not yet, I see.
(((((((((((((((((Sue, Danielle and family))))))))))))))
Well, it's raining, right on schedule, so no doubt it will be snowing before I wake up! Hope you are all dry and warm and cozy. Sleep tight, all xxx
Little Jasmine arrived fit and well yesterday evening. She weighed in at 6lb 6oz. Both are fine at the moment. They are keeping them both in for a few days as a precaution.
Baby looks so like her father !
Thanks for all the good wishes and vibes. I was a little worried there for a while after reading all the info, but as long as Jasmine's blood sugars check out they'll be released home soon.
Congratulations Sue, daughter/mum and Jasmine. What a fantastic start to the day.
She does look like a really healthy young lady.
Coffee is on
woop, woop, Grandma Sue So pleased that Jasmine and Danielle are doing so well. Unfortunately all babies look like Winston Chruchill to me but a very bonny Winston Churchill at that
My Pa tells me stories that people passed out in the street cos it was so cold in 1963 - wouldn't know, wasn't even a twinkle then
Mmmm, lovely warm baps, Spence
Light snowfall of dandruff ongoing here. Settling slightly as no traffic. I shall pack myself up prepared for the worst and head off out. Is only 5 miles and predominantly main roads. Am a little fed up. How is it that people who are less busy than me are unable to meet up or let me know they aren't available when I have asked whether they can meet this weekend. Pah!
