Haha that is a good lesson learnt then JG! I dont think they realise until someone else (or something else) points it out, and until then they just think you are nagging or not being serious. i was quietly having a nervous breakdown a few weeks ago and sold everything not nailed down in the house but hubby just basked in my newfound housekeeping skills without noticing some of the things were my prized possessions! I even let my mother come to the house on my 40th and walk off with the only gift I had been given.  Anyhoo hope your hubby realises a) you are a grown up and deserve some respect b) he shouldnt snoop!!! 

CM new onsie or new trainers? Glad you are enjoying your belated xmas! 

Kinsey grrrrrrrr, didnt expect to sell?? What kind of people are they? STUPID?? 

Off for a jog now, i have eaten 4 massive roasts in 3 days and tummy feels like a snake which has eaten a whole buffalo.

Hope you had a good run Camlo.


My brother was here for a few days and was nice to have 

a male ally who actually can't get his head round how men 

behave. He did most of the dishes and entertained Camryn . Hubby on the otherhand barely lifted a finger and rather 

than spend time with his kids before he went to work, sloped 

off with his Xmas voucher to dwnload games on his computer, nothing 

new there then.

And of course I got the cliche black and red underwear 

that I would have to lose at least a stone to fit into. Why 

would a 40+ woman with weight issues want bloody underwear, seriously! 

Money for new trainers, a personal trainer or some other 

fitness related gift yes, not a bloody basque + thong.

Tt ()

we got my brother in law a couple of pt sessions with my old trainer - because he's been going on about putting on weight and never comes up with anything he wants. Cost quite a bit. No thankyou just complained that he was too unfit to manage a pt session (he's not!) and he wanted to change the start date from 6th. He also spent all of Christmas on his ipad, asleep on the sofa or in a bad mood complaining about all the food he was being forced to eat (which my hubby spend 6hours preparing). this happened last year too and I'm inclined to tell him to stay at home next year and I'll take the pt sessions.

JG- hubby would never read this! He just wouldn't even think of it. 

Camlo () how can they be so oblivious! Buffalo eating snake is definitely how I feel too (sat next to heros tin...)

cm, hope you're now having a great time with the kids.

 congrats to tt! I hope all ok and Hope the sickness bugs went away. 

kinsey - grrr to house!! How ridiculous those sellers sound! I thought you might be underwater too! Assume you been brooklands? the river mole had flooded by us but we were ok, had power anyway! And only affected our planned rainy Xmas day walk.

both girls have been ill most of Xmas but overall we had fun (except for BIL who I'm trying to forget about..). Ear infections and snotty colds - which has now delayed our trip up north to next week. So enjoying a few unexpected days only the 4 of us!

caro - glad he liked Cookie Monster and well done on that pb!

I've been running a bit as should have started my training for brighton marathon. Was getting concerned as itb playing up as soon as I upped long run over 8 miles. However had some very unexpected news on Xmas eve so I'm not sure I'll be doing it anymore..!

sorry for crap spelling etc, ipad nonsense! enjoying few mins of calm as hubby taken girls out to park, I am meant to be looking at sale tables online but got bored and kept looking at trainers

28/12/2013 at 15:38

Not at all intrigued as to what the unexpected news was 

28/12/2013 at 15:51

Come on Sonya...spill the beans!

28/12/2013 at 16:20

Yes come on Sonya, would I be correct in guessing your unexpected news is not dissimilar to mine?

28/12/2013 at 17:22

Ooh we like unexpected news 

28/12/2013 at 17:42
TT, grr to the underwear. I would always choose my own otherwise it would never get worn!

Sonya, don't keep us in suspense!! The floods made getting to Wisley tricky but apart from that it didn't affect us. I went over to M&S to pick up a parcel today and it looks like its all gone now.

Hubby has another house and two rentals to view in Ross on Monday so we might go and rent there as at least it will make it easier to do viewings!
28/12/2013 at 18:29

Is it u expected news of the turbo tid variety?! Come on....tell!

28/12/2013 at 18:30

unexpected even. 

We got a diagnosis for MIL Yesterday. Myeloma. Chemo starts today. She had to have 25 tablets for breakfast! 

28/12/2013 at 18:33

Bought new running top and tights today in the sales but seriously want new trainers. Want snazzy coloured ones

28/12/2013 at 19:17

Oh EF that's a shame, always seems worse when these things happen at 

this time of yr. Hope the chemo isn't to awful and she has a good 



Would love nice bright coloured trainers but never have 

them in ones I get.

28/12/2013 at 19:30

Sorry about mil EF, do hope the chemo goes as well as it can.

yep, it is unexpected news of the tt variety! Been feeling odd for a week before so rather randomly bought a test, didn't tell hubby I'd got one as was sure it would be -ve. I was a wobbly mess when it was positive! Hubby was really excited though despite it being unplanned! Had to pull it together as mum staying and pretend to be normal (not drinking over Xmas was hard to hide!), we haven't had much time to talk about it until now. No idea of dates as i haven't had a period since June(!) but can't be far gone at all. I am happy but also scared to death how I'm going to cope with three!

28/12/2013 at 19:31

Yay!!! Congratulations!

Yipppppeeeeeee well done Sonia!! 



28/12/2013 at 20:39

Congrats Sonya and TT! Nice to have some more 2014 babies to look forward to. 

JT - can't believe you're just a few weeks away now, how quick has that gone!

Merry Crimbles everyone - hope you all had a lovely time. Am reading and keeping up with you all, just never seem to have time to post. 

Its definitely something to do with mens brains that makes them unable to see the sink piled high with dishes, buy ridiculous underwear for xmas, etc etc. Although hubby is very hands on with childcare and DIY, garden, etc so consider myself pretty lucky on that front!

Off to try and buy some new running gear. Achilles holding (for now) so hoping to get a few races under the belt this year.

As am such an infrequent poster I will say Happy New Year now! May 2014 be healthy and happy for all you lovely ladies and your families. And in the style of SCD's Tess and Brucie 'Keep running...'


29/12/2013 at 07:17
Congratulations Sonya! Well I'm still standing with three. Benedict just turned 18 months.
Time definitely goes quickly anyway! Off to see Cinderella with Martha and Aidan today, should be fun!
29/12/2013 at 08:12
Congrats Sonya! Lovely news! I was quietly hoping the same thing as my period was 10 days late (was waiting to go home to test) then it turned up - boo! No idea why so late though - annoying!

We had a nice Christmas Day but the week has been hard going as Matilda has really been challenging. Fighting sleeps, tantrums etc etc. I'm pretty sure Dad will be happy to wave good bye to us tomorrow. We definitely need to get home to be able to put some stricter routines in place. I'm feeling more tired and frazzled than when we left which isn't great! Need to find my zen before the new year!
Hope the weather improves for you all - looks horrible from the news
29/12/2013 at 11:37

Yay Sonya!! Congratulations! What wonderful news! And you too TTid! I missed that news! how far along are you? How old are your two boys? They'll all be quite close in age won't they? I wouldn't mind 3 (hubby definitely would!!) and I'd like thme all close together. That's just great for both of you and yes, lovely to have more thread babies for 2014! 

JT - I worries more with pregnancy 2 - but we did have a dodgy scan at 20 wks which didn't help. 

hoggle - E has been similar to Matilda on occasions over Xmas. Think it's a symptom of being 2 and a bit and all the excitement and attention they get. On the whole he's been good but getting dressed every day is a nightmare. That's his particular challenge for me every day. "Jamas all day Mummy. Wan wear jamas all day!" Cue sobbing. *sigh *

loverly to hear from you MR!
