*raps Solb's knuckles with the wooden spoon* you need to wait until I've mixed it properly then you can scrape out the bowl

I don't suppose you fancy doing mine while you're at it?

Cheers Solb. You don't fancy doing the rest of the house while you're at it?

Looks like a load of positivity has been happening in here
Could I borrow a bit this morning, please?

Yes Frodo you most certainly can *dispatches positivity and a virtual hug* 

I'm off to therapy (hopefully via the shower as I still have a rather yellow hue from yesterdays monstering - I thought this blinking stuff was washable!!)

( Frodo, do you want first stir of this thread's Christmas cake?)

Right, this week is half term. I tend to worry a lot about school holidays because I find it hard trying to occupy the two children when they ilike doing very different tthings. Moo likes running around,exploring, destroying everything as he works out how things works. Little miss is nearly 7 years older and wants to play with her friends, go shopping, make and bake. We always survive and I have a couple good things planned

Thanks for the good vibes. They weren't able to change something that I now know was inevitable, but they were appreciated.
I'm pretty low again, but not giving up
I hope therapy went well, SOLB?

Hey Frodo

I'm glad you aren't giving up, am here if you need some support (or a rant) I'm sending lots and lots of love and a massive cuddle. 

Therapy went really well, was a good session. I got to tell Vicky that I feel like it's really working and I just feel better underneath all the wibbles and wobbles, it's like my base line is higher. 

I made her laugh by saying can we not just shake all the 'alters' out and squish them; I wanted to force the process a bit to make some more progress. Vicky laughed and said it really doesn't work like that but she must have listened too as next week we are going to review some of the stuff I've drawn; including stuff when I was in a 'blank' and Vicky thinks I was someone else. Sounds really weird but I'm glad she's letting me push it a bit. 

I really, truly believe that I'll get better not just from the dissociative identity disorder thingie but from the OCD too. It's really cool I dont think I've ever felt that a recovery was actually possible before. I'm hoping that by this time next year I won't be seeing Vicky or Sally (CPN) anymore cos I won't need to. 

I bumped into a snotty cow who I used to work with today, she gave me the most superior smirk I've ever seen as we walked into the library - I smirked right back as I imagined shoving her head first into the huge book bin that was next to us! 

Haven't seen creepy neighbour for a week (he's still banging away up there so I assume it's a massive binge and he'll emerge looking yellow and crumpled soon) so I braved chopping the grass. I'm glad I've done so much work on the wilderness over the last few weeks - it looks so much better and not a lion or jungle in sight. 

*passes Frodo a mug of tea to take the too-much-sugar-feel-sick headache away and hides the empty cake tin in the corner*

Wanders in ready to stick the cake in a tin if it is cool enough

Erm, has anyone seen a Christmas cake? Big thing, sat on the workshop, smelt rally good?

Oh By Eck I'm taking SOLBsis and the mini's for an autumn walk in the New Forest next weekend. You guys would be welcome too

29/10/2012 at 14:01

Maybe you just dreamed about making a cake *solb is relieved she did the washing up now*

Erm, all my Christmas cake ingredients have gone missing too. There was dried fruit, treacle that is now opened,all the ground almonds are missing and I only have one egg left.
On well, at least I have a beautifully clean kitchen and can cook another one!

'lo peeps!


Mmmm I smell Crimbly cake


Sorry you're feeling low Frodo (((( Frodo ))))


Wish I could make it to the New Forest it sounds good plus I could add to my P sister collection

I've got new wellies for the walk... I was excited but they have a defect the package came with a ??10 discount on the next purchase. I'm going to order some more wellies with the discount and return these for a refund instead of exchanging 3

I'm excited about the autumn walk. I don't think you get to keep any of the SOLB sister's bear though they are a few of us!
