How do you get going again after pregnancy?
No it is Mr Davis. all free as I have paid my excess thru my calf physio. No one did sputum sample. She wanted me to have erythromycin but I know I can't take that. The only thing I am a bit apprehensive about is the fact that I had these antibiotics in Jan and got ill again after that. Only time will tell I guess.
Boo to broken cars, hospital triage with bumps, gynae appts, allergies, having to learn so many lines (eek), palpitations and snotty, Germy kids!
YIPPEE to pink chicken,chicken prawns and gullible kids! race prep and plans!
CM good luck with appt and agree with JT to take it slowly with any plans.
Minks - all the stress over eating and you are proof that it all comes good eventually. we should take a leaf out of your book!
Am sat in a hotel room as on a 2 day course - had a good gym session and a nice Thai curry without constant demands for drinks, toilet etc. lush!
JT - that's awful about the wait. Hope Archie is okay now. They really should take the age of child into consideration more, especially in the evenings when these young kids should be tucked up asleep in bed so are going to be massively overtired as well as potentially unwell.
CC - sorry to hear your car is dead. We've been wanting to trade up to a 7 seater for ages but couldn't afford it but a friend of my mum's is selling a Zafira which is 3 yrs old and only has about 12,000 miles on clock. Anybody else got one? Hubby thinks it might be too small and there won't be enough boot space with the extra seats out. I'm your typical girly driver and just wondered what colour it was!
Thanks for good luck messages. Lily was fabulous!! So relaxed and confident, only a tiny bit of nerves sneaked in which meant she didn't hold some if the notes for as long as she normally can but overall fantastic. So proud, had tears in my eyes when I met up with her after the show. She absolutely loved doing it too and was on such a high she couldn't sleep so we had a cuddle on the sofa catching up on the tennis until 10pm. Next stop, the west end stage !
Karen - we went for the Touran n because the rear seats are bif enough to take an adult. Big sister was with me and ruled out the Toyota Verso because they were too small. Lots only have seats really big enough to accommodate a chiabout to about 7/8 max so it's worth all piling into onoff that makes sense and stick the adults in the back row to make sure they can tolerate it!
cm - my friend who works at uhw in sonography rates Nigel Davies too. He can be vey blunt though as will tell patients they're too fat for him to scan ! She then has to pick up the pieces... Don't think you'll have that problem though
oh god now i'm paranoid JT!
wow karen - she sounds like a real star! amazing!
i have left my notebook with 2 weeks of meeting notes in it in hemel 150 miles away and i don't even know where. it hasn't been handed in and i have no idea where i left it as i was all over the building. today was my day for typing up too. ARGH!!!!
I have a zafira Karen, yes when all the seats are up there
is very little boot space, room for an umbrella buggy + some
blankets and jackets and a bag of rackets, toy swords and
But I have sat comfortably in the rear seats on several occasions and you can also
fold dwn one rear seat and have extra storage. the boot is huge when both are folded
Mine is a petrol almost 11yrs old and have only just had to replace the exhaust and
brakes in the last yr, it has done just under 60000miles. Takes about £65 to fill tank + does about 450miles to a tank on short journeys,
more if doing longer journeys.
Mine has needed very little money spent on it, sailed
through it's mot most yrs without needing anything
and mechanic says it's in fantastic condition for a car that age,
couple of tiny rust patches that can barely see unless looking for them.
And I have to admit it has not bn well looked after, rarely gets a
service and lucky if it gets washed twice a yr.
mine was also 3yrs old ex motability car with about
15000 miles on clock when I got it.
i need a new car too. have just started discussions with my financial advisor about how to fund it. i have savings but he would rather i got a loan because rates are so low right now. i don't like loans!
i won't be in the market for a big job (!) but i need something that will put up with me doing 100s of miles a week for work. i do a lot of mileage. mine is a 56 plate and i have done 100,000+ miles in it
any recommendations? 4 door, nice big boot for camping, reliable. i'm not going to do new new but need it to be quite new
We were doing the whole Alahambra/Galaxy/Sharan debate when we got mine eight years ago. Agree sliding doors would be fab, also was going to say what Vixo did about room for child-seats (which ties in with JTs comments about fitting adults into car in back). Ours is fab for that. I rarely have all seven seats in so boot is huge and the other seats can have their backs flipped down, seats tilted up, or removed for even more space! TBH, the Sharan only really started costing money last couple of years, and for it's 150,000 miles it's been a star!! Hey ho.
Never understand point of new new, lost value as soon as it's off the forecourt!!
I love the look of the Skoda Yetis but sadly they are too recent a model so not out on the second-hand market at a decent price yet.
Skoda are good actually, VW engine technology under the Skoda bodywork etc. Have a few friends with Octavias and the like (I know it's not a 4-door CM, but an estate).
B*gger to the left behind notebook!
Hope you have a decent weather forecast for the weekend Vixo ... bit mixed up here but am hoping the South will be lining up some decent warm temperatures for the next month all ready for our drive South next Friday!!
Been feeling rather wrecked the last few days, snuffly, coughy and tired and had vile headache last night - one of those ones where you feel sooooo sick! Clearly tapering does not agree with me - am definitely not feeling the sprightliness I need for a race on Sunday . Hey ho. Nice pre-race logistics too - train Forres to Aberdeen (1:50); bus Aberdeen to Braemar (2 hours or thereabouts); night in Braemar Youth Hostel, all raring to go on Sunday morning . BUT will be great to pop out into Aviemore at the end of the race and hopefully hubby and kids will be there to meet me. Anyway, best get rid of germs first!!
TT - that sounds a right star of a car! Loved all the pics of Camryn and her specs. J was insistent he wanted to wear his Harry Hill mock ones to school this morning, I persuaded him out of that one.
I need new glasses too, my current ones are falling apart, but thought I'd get over the shock of dental bills before we started on the optical ones!
i meant 5 door. not 4! i was wondering about skoda actually. even though the word skoda actually means pity. that has always put me off somewhat. i don't want a vauxhall. i know a number of you have them but i had such a bad experience with a past vauxhall and with the dealership in newport that i don't want to go back there. can't get to dealers in cardiff easily (logistics of taking car in etc are a nightmare) so it has to be newport-based cars for dealerships for now.
oh dear re logistics for race - i hope you feel better soon!
perhaps one of the tents could become the dining/eating area throughout the day? One of our friends has a tunnel tent where you can effectively have the fly up without the inner and we've used that in similar situations. We bought a big add-on awning the other year for our tent as it doesn't really have a dining shelter area (is a small *family* camping tent) and this is fantastic actually. WIll try and find a link for it but will be later on (with a view to a future purchase perhaps). It WILL all be fine - but yes, only because of your preparation!!! GGrrrrr to hubby, all sounds very familiar though ...
cm - was it the Cwmbran dealership you had issues with? They're the ones who claimed they'd done the recall work on my car and didnt leaving me with potentially lethal steering! VW are pretty good in Newport on a sales side. We got our new car from Car Shop in Cardiff in the end. Got a really good price but they were a bit slow. Know loads of people who swear by Motorpoint too. And don't worry about Nigel Davies, from what I can gather he doesn't 'do' people who dont look after themselves so obese really annoys him. All that said he's supposed to really know his stuff.
well done Issie! Missed that earlier, sorry Karen.
vixo - the egg was very impressive. I think it was probably the size of two! And turquoise . now getting lots of comments about it. And yes as the interesting service, it is RGH. An anethesitist friend has commented it's the worst hospital she's ever been to for dealing with a and e patients and she's worked in a few!
We're camping tomorrow night too, but looks dry for the wk end fortunately! Only 1 night, and no cooking involved so shouldnt be too bad. Pulled the camping chairs out of the shed yesterday and thats about as far as I have got!
Oh, and those vehicles you lot are discussing....once they have 7 seats and sliding doors they are mini buses, not cars!
I know Caro, my sister lovingly refers to my deceased car as *The Bus*
That is the worst thing about holidays Vixo, two days, weekend, one week = same large pile of kit!!!
The Subaru we have at the moment has a very small boot so I will be doing some very compact packing for our trip South. Thankfully I'm only doing one night in tent with just me and the kids so that will be v lightweight, our other *camping* is in the Yurt so positively luxurious!!
Just waiting for sausage rolls to finish cooking (for tennis tea after S's tennis lesson) before legging it back up to town to pick up son and friend from badminton and then back to tennis to join S and the rest!
My kitchen sink tap has just exploded everywhere and the gusting wind has randomly blown a load of ash through small window and all over my treadmill ... sigh
On the plus side, just watched the P4-P7s summer concert and it was FANTASTIC, really happy uplifting stuff
We like our s-max, 3 car seats across back plus 2 fold down seats in boot, handy for when granny and grandad are here.
