How do you get going again after pregnancy?
It's just awful isn't it TT
RF - I went to see that a couple of weeks ago with friends, we had a ball! Glad you had a great time.
TT - That's a really difficult one. All I can think is, it has happened here (Dunblane) and maybe it's because the country is so much bigger that is appears to happen more frequently?
Lotte - forgot to say, so glad he was found. Just hope the medical staff can start to sort things out.
Slightly strange request! I'm doing a Secret Santa next week and there's a standing joke with the girl I've got about 50 Shades of Grey. Was thinking of doing a joke box for her with bits, ahem, from the book. Does anyone have suggestions of what to put in . I've not actually read it so just trying to glean from the 'net what to do. Have picked up on the 'Laters Baby' catch phrase which I've managed to get a 'Sexy Santa' that I've superimposed her husband's face on to so printed the photo with that written underneath! (http://www.faceinhole.com/us/create/sexy-santa/b0bc3135-70b6-44af-b241-d4e099f8e35c/)
Yes, JT, I do get your point about UK not being immune to these things but population here only 5 times that of UK and seems to happen a LOT more than 5 times as often. Couldn't even begin to understand how the parents are feeling now. 20 kids dead plus gunman. His mum was the kindergarten teacher. Ugh.
Haven't read 50 Shades either so can't help I'm afraid. Sounds like a good idea though. Come on ladies, 'fess up - who's read it??
Well done Caro, sounds fab! Hope you can work out the finer details. I'm also in bed, feeling v rough but of the ill variety rather than any wine. Think I need to have a proper rest so am trying to not do anything today...
Caro - well done, that sounds brilliant, hope the paperwork and final terms all come through ... what a revelation for you it will be to work in a supportive environment!!
Enjoy your peace and quiet.
My hubby was feeling a ropey and ill on Friday night so he'd thought he'd stay in bed 'til 10 yesterday morning and this morning he was out at 8.00am to go cycling with the boys. Bless him, it's tough isn't it!!
Kids seem to have recovered from the vomits which is great. Took J orienteering yesterday, weather was grim and wet and cold (like 2 degrees and drizzling) but he loved it and managed to jog all the way round his 1.8km course. I did my usual, run fast but not pick very good routes so as usual times never live up to everyone elses expectations ... but I am gradually improving.
Pantomime in the afternoon, which hubby joined us for half-way through as he was still feeling tired etc (bless).
I'm still not feeling great but think it's hormonal too - went through a phase about a year ago of getting awful nausea as part of PMT so think I have that combined with dregs of the vomit bug and I slept sooooo badly last night, just feeling really stressed at the moment. J just had massive meltdown as I've said we are not going to rugby kids christmas party this afternoon - is 2.30-5.30pm and it will be me doing it as hubby back off to airport at 4 and has some work to do first. I just can't face it!!!
Sorry, having a mini melt-down at the moment. Will be short-lived though ... promise to stop whinging.
Hope your meltdowns stopped CC, think the end of term is making everyone a bit grumpy too, or it is here anyway...
Another hubby here who needs quite a lot of 'rest' although he did try to keep the kids out of my hair today so I could get some extra sleep as it is taking me so long to get better.
CM - as someone who is now working in the world of gymnastics I say they are all freakin crazy so avoid at all costs!! Haha no thats only the committees! Gymnastics is an excellent sport for developing fundamentals of movement eg. at its basic levels you lern all the skills to be able to do otehr sports well - balance,landing, jumping etc. In NZ now they have recognised that kids are coming in to sports without these basic skills and fundamentals through gymnastics is becoming a big thing. SO anyway enough boring stuff - if you can find a friendly group where emphasis is on fun and learning new skills he could learn some great stuff. Basically a club with a good recreation gymnastics programme (not sure what they call it in UK) rather than just a competitive programme as I wholeheartedly agree - WAY to competitive and harsh in the competition levels! I will be getting M to do the fundamentals/rec stuff when she is little but definitely not encouraging her to take it up competitively - too many bitchy princesses and focus on body shape etc. Also have been hrrified at seeing coaches sitting on gymnasts to get their stretch further - shocking!!! Sorry - taken over thread with a gym rant!!
Nearly time to go get M from daycare, running tomorrow I promise!!
PS Woohoo Caro!!!!!
