Caro - out of four lost so far (2 front bottom and 2 front top) 2 were shark teeth and the other 2 were not. With the shark ones the baby tooth only wiggled forward as the new big tooth was right behind it. But they seem to be coming in fine - apparently they don't like giving them braces till they are in their teens so even if they were wonky we'd have to learn to love it for a good few years!

CM and Ikkle - I work full-time compressed hours so its half-hour lunches for me but one day a week (cool weather only) I go for a half-hour run. Am ruthless about it, its in my calendar and even if its manic day I still go - feel so much better for getting out the office. And since its winter and I'm not speedy enough to sweat a quick damping down with a facecloth in the disabled loo afterwards does fine. Can recommend it for productivity and sanity levels!!

Come on Sonya
... its like been days since we had any babies on here

Welcome to the world of IT in higher education CM. I'm afraid after 10 years spent working in a university, I've lost all faith in the ability of our IT guys to be effective!

We get a similar problem with the blacklisting and our Head of IT's response is 'theres nothing we can do about it, you'll just have to suck it up. But if you really need to get in touch with the students you could could try writing to them?'. Erm... helpful, NOT!

Congrats TTid - glad all well and lovely to have a girl. With two big brothers to look after her and warn potential boyfriends off you'll be fine, lol

Caro - will be thinking of you tomorrow. Hope it passes uneventfully.

Megan is also well versed in the art of insolence, back chat and withering looks. Her favourite is always to finish off with 'Seriously?" in her high-pitched incensed exclamation voice! She wouldn't dare at school but by god at home she lets rip! Interesting on the control aspect JT - good plan to try and make them feel like they are still in control and have choice.

EF - am hoping that we can avoid your vommy bug by virtue of our contact window being much smaller than yours, Mr EF's, your mums or Lou's! Going to see a fringe show tomorrow night and am in the balcony so if I do succumb this could be very bad news for those in the stalls :-0

JT - thats crap. Can you go above your immediate boss to the local authority (presuming its like Scotland where teachers are actually council/local authority employees?). Presumably they're not on holiday for the next 6 weeks either so might be able to help?

Its a cold cap EF - my friend used it and kept her hair (although it thinned considerably). You can't use normal shampoo, straighten or colour it though. And you need to wear it at least hour pre-chemo and hour post-chemo so does make the chemo day very very long. But worth it if you'd like to try and keep your hair Caro?

Camio - take it easy. Puking hours later doesn't sound ideal!

Caro - good to hear infection all sorted and you're feeling better again. From the wedding photos on FB you're looking fantastic despite half-time dressing changes in disabled loos! Fingers crossed you get some dates/timelines in place soon. Vixo's cushion was lovely - am very envious of those with sewing/craft ability - I could not be less gifted in that area!

Camio - well done on tri, great effort. Its the swimming that would do for me - hate getting my face wet which is a slight problem when it comes to swimming!

Sonya, TTid - hope the MRS not too bad. Our last house move we did whilst I was 38 weeks pregnant! In the space of 18 months we got married, moved three times, OH changed job and we rounded off by having a baby. It wore us out and we have pretty much had our feet up for the last 7 years, lol!

Just back from weeks holiday in Lake District - lots of cycling, rowing and general gadding about the countryside, Was lovely. Back to work today

Vixo, Sonya - I've got stick on name tags from http://www.mynametags.com/ for water bottles, snack boxes, packed lunch boxes etc. Never had any come off - they survive being washed no bother. Some people put them on shoes and clothes too - I've never tried it (mainly Megan has such sweaty feet I don't think anything would survive them!).

Caro - glad the tramadol at least letting you get some restful sleep. Hope all OK with the wound. Don't panic on the arm - my friend was the same in the first few weeks and physio found she'd actually been too vigorous/overdoing it with her arm exercises which had made it more painful/immobile.

CM - I've worked in a university for 10 years. Unfortunately IT doesn't have a great reputation at my work, whilst its getting better the password debacle is just the kind of thing that would happen where I am.

Reading, but just never seem to manage to post. On holiday this week and next - off to the Lakes for a week on Saturday so sorry to all in advance for next weeks weather as it usually p****s down when we go our hols

Caro - thinking of you today and hope to see you doing some one-handed typing to post on here once you're felling like it.

CC - grrrr to hubbies. They bury their heads in the sand until the shit hits the fan then over-react by suggesting stupid things like divorce (a la TT's hubby). It is true that men are from mars and women are from venus!! Hopefully now you can start to have productive conversations about what happens next - as TT says its circumstances working against you but they need to change before you both collapse in a heap! Hugs hugs hugs.

Caro - glad the news was good today and that the operation will be Monday so not too long to dwell on things.

My friend who had her lymph nodes removed was also worried about the possibility of lymphodema, which is made worse by fact lifting your arm is sore for a very long time after so she was in a panic that it was lymphodema - but she hasn't had any bother in the 18 months since.

Right, off here - co-ordinating end of year collection for Megan's class. Got the lovely job of sorting out all the pics and messages the kids have drawn for the teacher before can hit the sack tonight - they are all so sweet.
