    Suep - you'll have to take up knitting .. DD2 has just confessed that she is addicted to it . I'll have to get her to join Ravelry. She has knitted four of the jumpers that she bought the yarn for when she was last here.

    beds
    My 'puter was playing up a short while ago; dropped the broadband and refused point blank to find the signal again. Rebooted - no dice. Had to reinstall the Belkin software, and that fixed it.

    Mr LW will be in shortly, and then we have to empty out the drawers in the base of the bed, as our new bed is supposed to be delivered tomorrow.

    Thanks guys, you're all great

    I'm not going while 25th September pcl. Taking the kids out of school but only for the Friday and the Monday so it shouldn't be a problem as last time I checked they had a 99 percent attendance rate and I've only had them out of school two days since then. I think we're going to Mablethorpe, Golden Sands?? All the passes are included so at least I won't be met with any hidden expense when I get there.

    I want a baby squirrel!!!!!

    *waves tiredly* Wedding prep is knackering!!

    And not being able to cope with the pain of a bra is becoming a real issue in the attempts to get wedding day underwear Had a bit of a sulk about it before too

    On the up side, t'other B2B found THE dress today...and got it for a song as they took pity on her seamstress-ruined-dress sob story.

    I was gonna respond to you all, but frankly I'm too knackered.
    Unity hope you have a great holiday

    kass the way this summer is going sept is going ot be the nice weather just right for the sea side wont do the kids any harm to miss 2 days, othe rpeople take them for 1 or 2 weeks in term time sure.

    unity have a safe journey too.

    bz bras are the most uncomfortable things i agree, i actuall found my most comfy ones in tescos, basics/value t-shirt bras with no underwire or padding (but obviously plain boring is not what you want for wedding day undies). yay on other b2b getting her dress sorted, that must be a relief for her.

    i forgot how sad a movie lassie was, i dont think ive seen any of them since before i left home, now i want the others. if today goes according to plan im off to see the time travellers wife. it was a good book iirc.
  • kassandra
    Oooh I want to see that pcl!

    That's good news about !!!B bz. Bet she was cacking herself about not finding one in time. I might start my own underwear range for fibromites/lupines/chronic pain sufferers! Is your dress strapless/off the shoulder bz?

    My comfiest bra has underwire but you really can't feel it which is probably why it doesn't give you much of an uplift.

    Is it today you go Unity? If so, have a nice time!

    Is careful back yet? My mind is just a big black hole I think!!

    how do you guys feel about people eating during a movie? its bugs the heck out of me, and ive just realised that friend i am going with was asking if i like maltesers and such like so she can bring sweets with her.......i know its the norm to but and eat pop corn or pick and mix there but the rustly bags and crunching really do bug me, how do i nicely tell my friend that for future reference? its not so bad when its someone not right next to me.....or am i being mean by wanting her to not eat sweets?

Has claimed the sofa for her own, and has sussed out the route from the garden, through the back door, through the kitchen and into the lounge.
    Also Mr LW is working from home today, which is why we opted for today to have the bed delivered, so he'll deal with the delivery men.

    Glad the other B2B has got a dress sorted.

    Happy Holidays to all those off on their travels.

    i dont eat while watching tv, well if i do it gets turned up and whatever im eating is finger food and poured out of its packaging so nothing rustles. she just phoned to ask if i could pay (i was going to anyway) as she has no money til tomorrow, she better not have bought sweets *g* yeah not allowed to bring your own here either but they dont search bags unless they are clearly containg food and beverages bought elsewhere.

If we go to the cinema, we never have food or drink, we go to the pub afterwards and have a drink. I don't think you can get the full enjoyment out of the drink/sweets if you're watching a film at the same time. But that's just me, everyone's different. As for bag-rustlers - personally I'd like to shove their bags of sweets somewhere the sun don't shine!

    Edited to add: At our local Cineworld they sell sort of mini-meals for people to take in - curry type things. Mega-YUK to have to smell that if someone's eating one close by.

    Hi all
    typed a long post last night and then got thrown off t'interweb by a tempramental connection, so sulked.
    Suffice to say we are knackered after walking several miles across Tresco yesterday and the plan for a lazy day today was rather thrown out by walking a mile to a garden for lunch and then back, so I may just retire to bed tomorrow.

    Weather is cooler with a touch of damp but still very nice to walk/get out and about in. Off to dinns tonight at a place which does tapas type thingies and lush desserts.

    Can't catch up with all of you, so will just send hugs all round.
    Love to all.
    I must go, I have lives to ruin and hearts to break

    lw what a nightmare to smell, that would annoy me even more than bag rustling, and mobile phone lights being annoying, why can teenagers not leave their dang phones alone while they are in the cinema?
    How is the new bed? all together and ready for a decent nights sleep?

    cwta i should think a quiet day tomorrow is an excellent idea...before horse riding on friday glad your having a nice time.

    I should have brought tissues with me to the cinema, i had sufficiently forgotten the book to know i would likely need them. shall have to reread the book now.

    Hi all,
    I had a bit of an accident this morning and am not feeling too good. I dropped something in the bathroom, went to pick it up, straightened up and hit my head on the cabinet door which was open, I hit it so hard I fell over. It didnt bleed but Ive got a lovely big lump there and it's very sore, within minutes of doing it I started to feel sick and shakey so I laid down on the sofa with a bag of frozen peas on my head doing some deep breathing, it helped calm me down but it still hurts and now Im starting to feel sore all down the right side of my body. Just hope Im ok for tomorrow as I have gd for most of the day.

    Also I had a drs app, sorry if this is tmi, but I finished my period this month and 9 days later it started again this time its much heavier and more painful than normal. The dr thinks it might be the Peri-menopause and has given me some tablets that should stop it, but Im not sure thats a good idea, surely it's better out than in :confused:

    Ok sorry YUK, I'll change the subject

    LW I hope your new bed is lovely and comfy and Im glad the poodles settled in well.

    Kass we went on one of those Sun holidays when the kids were younger, I cant remember exactly where it was now, somewhere near Britol, we had a brilliant time, it just went too quick, but then if you go abroad for a week you lose 2 days travelling so only get 5 days away, my dh's self employed so cant take any longer than that away, also we dont like leaving Diamond for longer. Hope you have a lovely time.

    cwta have a lazy day tomorrow, hope the weathers still good for you, it's been boiling hot here today but is supposed to rain again tomorrow.

    Dd went to the cinema with friends last night to see Coco before Chanel not knowing it's in french with subtitles they walked out and slipped into another room that was showing something else :rolleyes:

    sue yikes, did you mention your bang to the head to the doctor when you saw him? hope you do feel better tomorrow. very sensible of your dd to sneak out and into another one hope she enjoyed it.
  • Careful with that Axe
    sue You poor love! Please do take it easy for a day or two at least. If you still feel sicky, it's not beyond the realms of possibility that you have a concussion.
    Will you promise me to make sure that DH keeps an eye on you tonight please?Lots of hugs.
