    tria i had a friend who had a cat who did that, the most sweetest lovely natured cat i have ever met, i wonder if she was a ragdoll.

    kass yup the siamese are the really thin ones, creamy white with black pointing i think its called on thier face and short hair. my aunt used to breed them. hope the kids didnt get you up too early, or they let you go back for a nap this morning. hows charlie these days?

    Well I caught them this morning after they had just stuffed Charlies into a small cupboard. I'm absolutely furious with them and assured them that I'm going to tell everyone I meet what horrible animal abusers they are
    Thing is, Charlie is so tolerant and I sometimes wish he would bite or scratch them to teach them a lesson. Don't get me wrong, they don't normally shove him in cupboards but they just don't leave him alone. They carry him about like a toy and I can tell he doesn't like it cos he always looks a bit perplexed but he makes no attempt to get away!! He can't hate them though, cos the amount of times he goes and sprawls himself all over them and goes to sleep, states that at some level he actually likes them! DD2 was laid on her side the other day and he managed to balance himself on her side with legs and arms dangling down at either side of her. He looked like he was asleep on a washing line! Then yesterday he got himself into some position on her lap that I wouldn't have thought a cotortionist would have got into. She was cradling him and saying he looked like a baby and he looked proper uncomfortable but he was fast asleep! That's my rant over for today. Bet you wish you hadn't asked

    I bet it's hard for you to keep a neutral mind. I always think it's harder for mums with their boys and dads with their girls (with the exception of my father obviously!) As long as dg is kept in the dark as much as possible. I hope things get a bit easier soon *hug*

    kass if it annoyed charlie that much he would attempt to get away and would scratch them if they didnt leave him alone, and he would steer clear of them instead of snuggling with them, dont worry about that.

    ((((Sue)))) you poor thing, so much family stress on top of your poorly head. Has DH come out of his sulk yet? Have you at least established what he's sulking about? I don't know, sometimes it's best just to let them go into their metaphorical cave, and leave them to it. My ex could sulk for England; luckily Mr LW doesn't.
    Hopefully DS1 will get hi situation sorted out, too. Try not to let it get to you, mate.

    BZ best of luck with the suit fittings. I suppose there's no point in telling you to build some rest time into the day? No, thought not.

    Kass I'd have shut the kids in the cupboard, and see how they like it!! Poor little Charlie. Still, as Pcl says, if he really hated it, he's struggle.

    I hope Auntie Axe, s/e and Unity are enjoying their holidays.

    to everyone else.

    I had to break off partway through typing this as Peggy Sue wanted to go out in the garden. I'll miss her when she goes home on Monday.

    bz Not an infection, please! Seriously hope you start to feel better soon. Reassure me you are having a couple of quiet days before the wedding, dude.
    Missing catching up with you.

    sue Will be travelling back late on Friday I think, so a week today. If you need to vent, feel free to email me, or I can send you my mobile numnber - I'm fast running out of credit and can't top up with my network here so can't ring you.
    How's your head, never mind everyone else?

    kass, pcl is right - if Charlie is unhappy, he'll let his feelings known. Poor little man stuck in a cupboard though.

    Funny old weather here today. No sooner did I splash out of a sweatshirt to snuggle up in than the sun came out. Still having a good time and s/e hasn't ended up over the quayside or upside down in the recycling bin yet. Is actually working quite well as have chill out time alone as well as trips out together.
    Hugs to all, specially poorly-feeling ones.

    lw Have you attempted the choccie bread yet?? Pleased to hear bed has been thoroughly tested *g*

    Cheers dude. Lol, it's been pretty hectic today but me and DF went out for tea with t'other B2B and her DF which was nice Hoping on an early night with DF tonight. It's his stag do tomorrow (paintballing and then out for a jar or two I think) and I'm really hoping he'll have a good time - a lot of people have dropped and/or made no effort for him for it... including his "Best Man". Can't tell you how much that pees me off, esp on the back of him barely even taking me on...ever. On the upside, my hair trial is tomorrow...Eek!

    I know, I know. I was really hoping to have all this running round done before now...unfortunately not. Altho I have given DF a to do list with his name in big red capital letters next to all the tasks I want him to undertake! He's working his way through it too, bless him. Some of the stuff left is all the personalised touches, which I guess wouldn't be the end of the world if didn't happen I'm waiting on someone else who works a ridiculous amount and has a young baby tho, so can't push it too much. I think I'll have a look at the Order of Service again tomorrow, while DF's out and see if I can't get that dusted...

    Missing catching up with you too dude. Sorry. I figured you wouldn't be online that much so not done any emails

    I'm not super sure about the hairstyle yet, mainly because I've not seen it attempted on me yet by the hairstylist (that's tomorrow) and because when I have my hair down it seems to make me really hot - and sweaty a pretty bride does not make! But I think I'm going for curly, half up, with little bits of curlyness at the front I did say no tiara, but t'other B2B has given me a sort of tiara crossed with a hair slide, so I might try that

    The best man is well out of order imo. He's now moaning about not being able to pay for his suit etc too, yet he's took a full week off (part time bar) work for no reason, when imho he could work through it for the extra money! It pees me off somewhat, esp as he is rather ignorant towards me :rolleyes:

    Cheers I'm rather impressed myself!! It means we don't have to stress out too much about money on our honeymoon and that we still have a safety net/beginning of a baby fund left after the wedding, which makes me feel much happier!
    I've taken a pic of each different style she tried, and I think we're sorted The slide works out much better too as the reason I chose not to have a tiara was because I didn't want the hairsore scalp pain of one, which the slide doesn't inflict...Hurrah! I shall upload the pics and show yous

Also I've had little Peggy Sue to watch - she needs care and attention because she's blind, bless her. Hopefully soon though; actually, that's just reminded me I must check that I have all the ingredients; I'm sending Mr LW to Morrisons on Monday anyway, so he can pick up anything I'm missing. (No, I know they don't do brain cells).:rolleyes:
