Oh dear, it has all kicked off next door, neighbour has complained about how long it is taking and builder threatened to quit. Have they never seen Grand Designs or any Sarah Beeny show, I have limited knowledge of building  but when my neighbour said they would be finished in 2 weeks I thought it looked more like 4 weeks and the baby is due in 3 weeks.

That sounds as though the builder has given a price and it is costing more than estimate-don't know about the other shows but have seen rogue traders and cowboy builders

Doesn't anybody want to know my fascinating fact?

 Geoff I would love to know your fascinating fact have you honestly never watched Grand Designs

My green way (and lazy) way of cutting the grass this morning.

Kate, is that the office in the garden that your neighbours are complaining about? Were they going to put the baby in there out of the way?

Please tell us your fascinating fact Geoff.

How on earth did you find that out?

08/10/2012 at 12:37

My birthdate is on my bus-pass and he happened to notice-what are the chances?

Afternoon all.

Gave up on the site last night. Wasn't loading any pages at all for me.

Flo, did I read that right. You ate a bild boar baguette??? What happened to hotdogs!

Jess is still in bed. No nursery for her today. She was burning up all last night, but pysically shivering saying she was cold, coughing and a lot of snivelling. A very interupted night.

Loves the pics everyone. x

the ponies aren't allowed in there too long. It's not good for them to have too much rich grass.

I read somewhere once that if you have a group of 60 people the odds are very high that two people will have the same birthday. I don't know how it works when there are 365 days in a year. I did once meet someone who was born on the same day as me.

08/10/2012 at 12:57
My sister and I have the same birthday, she's 4 years older than me though! Apparently this often happens in Army families...
08/10/2012 at 13:01

Just googled the chances of having the same birthday. Called the birthday paradox but didn't understand it.

08/10/2012 at 13:11

I have probably mentioned this before but OH's birthday and eldest son's are the same day and one day before mine.

08/10/2012 at 13:16

But why did the driver think it was neccesary to check your age.

Was there some reason why he thought you should not be entitled to a pass. Do you have any difficulty getting served in a public house. Or buying cutlery from Sainsburys.

08/10/2012 at 13:20

He didn't check it-the machine wasn't working properly-but in B&Q  no one has yet said you don't look old enough-it is getting to be a major disappointment

08/10/2012 at 13:34

Yay-I am rich again beyond my widest dreams HMRC wants to give me another tax refund of £270 all I had to do is to let them have my bank details-am so excited

08/10/2012 at 13:50

I am still waiting for you to send me your bank details for your share of the £10 I won in the lottery 12 weeks ago.

08/10/2012 at 14:15

There you go
