Hope te Ac works for you Tatty, I dont want babies but an increase in sex drive and decrease in PMT would be very welcome from both my and the Mr!!
CM, I seem to remember getting them to bend over and touch toes on the loo instead of holding seat to get a better angle
We had rather an embarrassing stand up wee incident the other day too.... M chose a tree that was bang smack in the middle of a very busy park and about a foot away from a family picnic. i was mortified and not sure they saw the funny side of it. I usually hold their legs in a squat so they dont get everything wet but for some reason she decided to just take herself!
She doesnt take after me, I find it nearly impossible to wee anywhere but a toilet which is incredibly inconvenient when camping, festivals, beach days etc... have to wait until I am absolutely busting and it still take 10 mins to let go!
We had a bead uop the nose incident too, rang NHS direct who said go to a&E. Waited for 2 hours then the doctors asked me to cover E's mouth with mine and block the other nostril then blow really hard. the bead shot out and across the room!! That is the sort of thing they need to teach in ante natal.... was a bit miffed that the doc then gave her a balloon for being a good girl, half expected her to do it again the next day for another balloon.
I live with a cricket obsessed man.... now that takes a long time! All day (and night to do the post match analysis in the pub) saturday, training on tues and mid week match. he even commuted from our camping trip at the weekend to play... an hours drive each way. Doesnt leave me many windows to run as i work at least one eve a week. oh well season nearly over and will just be sat am nets, although there is talk of an indoor league over winter.
He is very eager for me to run but doesnt seem to get that I dont have much time, especially as he is working away alot at the mo. Cycling to work seems the only way i can get regular exercise in at the moment but should be easier when school starts. Have to say I am not as dedicated as most of you though, like my sleep far too much to get up at silly o clock or sacrifice my sat am lie in!!
MM, went to a fab campsite not far from you. Would highly reccomend, loads of space, gorgeous views, and wood delivered every eve to have a fire. Its called Britchcombe park near Uffington. Only downside was portaloos but they were not too bad and the being able to camp where you wanted and away from everyone else more than made up for it. 8 adults and 9 kids, all friend from schooldays so had a blast!
Thanks for all the congrats..... we won (I think, not had reasons) as we were able to prove that school wanted had really good policies and procedures to deal with allergies and the school given would have been dangerous for them because of a complete lack of policies plus other reasons that it would be difficult to ensure they were kept safe without having to be excluded from things. We were also 1 and 2 on waiting list but would have been unable to accept a place from this if it came up in sept without splitting the girls. 18 others appealed and very unusual to win appeals here so feeling very lucky! Had meeting with head yesturday, was worried she would be a bit lukewarm as obviously she has now got to spread resources a bit further (and we had kicked up a rather big fuss about the lack of provision in the area) but she was lovely and congratulated us.... phew!
Camlo, hope all goes well tomorrow.... I think it was you wanting an egg free cake recipe? this is the best i have found, easy and delicious. Works as either cupcakes or a big one and delicious with choc fudge icing (I cheat and but Betty Crocker one from tesco)
275g SR flour
1/2 tsp salt
3 tblsp cocoa powder
175g castor sugar
1 tsp bicarb of soda
275ml (or 250g) whole milk
150ml (or 125g) corn oil or marg or butter (melted)
3 tblsp syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
Mix all dry ingrediants, ad syrup and mix. Add fat and milk a little at a time and beat. bake 180c for 30 mins for cake, less for cupcakes.
Hello all.... just a quickie to let you all know we somehow manged to win the school appeals and have got places for both girls. I am so relieved!!
Running has been a bit hit and miss with the copious amounts of research i did for the appeal/ work/ child juggling etc so am going to defer the 10k and hopefully now this is all over will get back into a routine. I have been cycling a fair bit though.... somewhat enforced as we are a car down.... but loving it so am going to try to carry on cycling to work and back
I am one of those runners who regularly gets taken over by pregnant and buggy pushing runners
Hope you are all good, will try and have a read back and catch up soon but bed beckons!
