    hi all don't post much lately, but do read up so more of a lurker.
    what lovely weather over the weekend, dh & fil spent the weekend putting playhouse up in the garden for the smallies the are well chuffed, will try & post pic from phone if i can.
    copied the post from the other forum as a catch up to whats been happening here
    Well so much is going on here it is like a rollercoaster, dd3 is pregnant and having a girl, she is going through a rough patch with depression & decided she didn't want to continue with pregnancy that was at 19+ weeks, went through a tough patch there but she seems to have improved with the meds and now looks to be happier and planning for baby even got a name 'Harper', also means she is moving out with bf gradually.
    Dd4 has passed her driving test & is now on the roads, that was expensive. did all the costs for her till she passed her test inc 1st car, she now pays for her own car insurance but doesn't pay any board. Also gone from having a gf middle of last year to having found a bf & has decided she wants to move in their own place together, so another leaving the nest. bf seems pleasant enough and has a job.
    Having a very up & down time with ds1 it is tough at times, got most of diagnosis for him but awaiting the adhd diagnosis it is the last meeting later this month for it.
    then dd2 has just announced she is pregnant but very early on this is dd3 twin. so at some point towards the end of the year she will also be leaving home.
    Bonus to all this is ds1 wants to have the girls room in the loft, he cant wait for them to move out.
    Holidays just got way cheaper for me as we still paid if they came away with us, but quite sad we never got to go on a last family holiday before all these changes happened.

    I love hearing about your family and so pleased things are falling into place for you all

    I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.

    Good morning all

    I am a very proud mother today Our DS is a star

    DD decided to estrange herself from the whole family a while ago and DS met her yesterday at a soft play He spoke to her, did not mention how she had broken out hearts asked after her family , showed her pictures of the nephew she has not seen and did not tell his dad in case in upset his Fathers day

    We do not do presents just a card, a visit and we buy a carry out

    I am more calm about work today after a melt down about unfairness on Friday

    Its in head that if he annoys me I am still off and there are a couple of extra holiday I have looked at but at least I am rational

    Enjoy whatever you do

    Well done DS.....let's hope it smooths out some wrinkles and opens the door to future discussions

    What's this with you lot ruining your strawberries with oats/sawdust.
    Originally posted by Tinyshoes
    You can say that again.

    I took 2 tubs to work. One containing my overnight oats with fruit and the other cottage cheese and tuna. Unfortunately neither container was shut properly.

    What a mess when I opened my lunch bag

    Somehow it also leaked all over my desk, down my white top and dripped onto the floor.
    By the end of the day, in that sweltering heat, people were giving my desk a wide berth

    Someone mentioned that Tesco were selling boxes of cherries reduced down to £2 but I couldn't face trashing about in the heat.

    Oh Ruby is beautiful Susie. Such a gorgeous little smile

    AJ....this heat must be awful for you. It feels like there is no air at times. I've been a sweaty mess today....and that's without spilling my lunch over me. Thank goodness it's cooling down tomorrow.

    Pleased to hear dads home tomorrow snap he's a proper soldier
