HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 09/07/2014 at 07:08
Morning all. No babies here - I've checked under all the bushes in the garden. I've never yet managed to grt partner to discuss babies. I think if we're ever to have one it'll be of the tipsy accident variety (I was a drunken accident when mother had too much wine and forgot her pill, he was the result of his father getting "over excited after going to a car show").

Just promise me OL you'll play it cool when the girlfriends come. My mother was cringeworthy when my brother started bringing girls home. Keep the baby photos locked away and for goodness sake don't mention weddings when they've only been going steady a few months - it makes you look a right fruit cake! (Made me so glad I didn't bother about boys til I'd left home! !)

Very warm here already - I'm hoping this might mwan they'll turn the air conditioning back on the office wasn't terribly fresh yesterday.

Patty your comment offends me much more than "yucky bits" ever could. I truly hope that you realise what a COMPLETE insensitive pathetic little prat you must sound but alas I don't think you have the intelligence. (Intelligence - to comprehend, or as used in this case a measurement of how clever you may or not be).

Mr. Fishy - I'm so sorry I haven't posted sooner, this thread completely passed me by. I hope Beth is almost back to normal now if not completely sorted. As for what you can put up a nose - believe me you should try baby sitting boys you'd be amazed what they could get up there to get out of bed time! Gross doesn't come close but fortunately snot is quite the lubricant at getting things back out!!

This must be your family had their limit to medical things now. I hope the rest of the year proves entirely uneventful!! XX

Weed and Feed

The lawn is my partners domain and he wants a crisp green flat luscious covering. We always check that any feed and weed we buy is safe for children (we have non) and pets (not sure the fish are too worried) under the assumption this would also cover the wildlife.

Interesting thought!

Oh they look lovely!!

Rain clouds have appeared Dove - yet to empty themselves. Perhaps they're waiting until 17:00 to make the drive home more fun!

Nothing last night here KEF. It seems going dark over to tease us then disappears off up to you it seems! I may have to relent and get the hose pipe out - if nothing else to cool me down this evening.

I love that planter!

I think the bosses are hoping one of us will volunteer and save them a lot of work. Funny how not one of the bosses has spoken to us since, not even a hello in passing. Strange creatures bosses.

HELLO FORKERS!

UNfortunately I must out rank KEF - my water butt is empty and the lawn most sorry for itself but I'm too tight to open the garden hose out. We haven't had a decent rainfall for a while now it always seems to skirt past. Can you send it over this evening Dove? About 22:00 would be grand!

The company isn't that small. I'll read up on employment laws tonight.

Gardeners hands! Best cream?

I keep a bottle of Avon Care "Glyverine hand and nail" at my desk. My future mother in law gave it to me as she didn't like it. For day to day use its very good (I apply three of four times a day - I have ecezema and to keep it at bay I have to near live in a bath of lotion) as it absorbs so quickly which is a major issue for me because no one wants to have to sit around waiting to smear it over their computer mouse.

I also make my own lotion using bees wax (if I can get it), coconut oil or shea butter or sometimes cocoa butter (the butters give a thicker texture) using lavender out the garden for a bit of luxury smell. Whether I take my time more enjoying the home made goodness so it has longer to sink in or not I'm not sure but it seems to be fantastic at help cuts / scratches / cracks heal and keeping my hands soft without huge price tags.

Everyone's going mad for chillies......

Diets don't work. Eating in moderation works. It has to be sustainable for the long run.

Therefore buy the chocolate just don't eat the whole packet in one go!
