GWRS I would love too but I'm working all weekend and as we were away last weekend my to do list is threatening a second sheet of paper.


Also if I don't get on top of the washing soon I'm in serious danger of having to resort to going as nature intended in the pants department. (Doesn't help that the hounds washing requirements means he is on his third load in the machine).


7 jobs down...

Morning all!


Got the day off today and truth be told looking at my to do list I'm thinking it'd be easier to go to work.


Washing machine will be going flat out and I'm hoping for good drying weather while I involve all the machines (strimmer, hedge cutter, lawn mower) to tidy up the garden.


Then I've all the places I need to visit; bank, supermarket, vets, doctors (ha! like they'll have an appointment slot available)...


But first I will drink my tea and decide where we are going for a run (truth be told its more a fast paced wobble but since its too much for my normal bra to handle I like to optimistically call it a run).

Oh DD. What an arse he is. If I could I'd march right up there any slap him in the chops with a pipe wrench.


I hope today is a good day for you.

CONGRATULATIONS LP!!


The school was great fun; I do hope there wasn't a class trying to learn with us blasting the sirens for hours.


Cut the lawn on the highest setting; it's grown so quickly with all of this rain. I'll cut it again tomorrow on a lower setting (weather permitting).

Morning all. Thanks for the support; honestly it horrifies me that it's not just my mother out there just has no concept of dignity - surely as a new mum you're allowed to carry the "baby weight" as long as you want. But at 8 weeks all I'd be concerned about is whether mother and child are clean, fed, and rested!


Wonky; thank you for the offer of sharing Mother Dove! :)


I'm afraid I went to bed at 20:00 last night I felt so drained even moving my arms felt an effort. I am taking a fire engine to a SEN school today for fun and trying on uniforms so really need to be on top form. (Day off tomorrow though). Missed the moon; hoping the BBC will have pictures!


Incase I forget HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAT for when it happens! (still the 21st here).

Both twigs say they're a maximum of 3 metre (10ft) after ten years so I don't think them dwarf stock. They'll be in the ground when the vegetable garden is finished. For now I've put them both in some potato growing type sacks for ease of being dragged around (& to see if they survive).


Strawberries are potted up and drying out (stagnant water anyone?)

Due to my mother having absolute no idea about my chronic illnesses (her complete lack of interest; it's not like Google is such an effort) I spent yesterday's big family party upset and most royally pissed off.


When you are morbidly obese yourself it is not appropriate to in front of everyone family or not) tell your daughter she's so fat she looks pregnant then question her on whether she's pregnant like it would be a bad thing.


HAD I been pregnant it's my decision when I announce it to the family.


HAD I been pregnant (considering my infertility a celebration in its own right) I have a 20% higher than normal chance of miscarriage and so reserve the right not to tell ANYONE until the child starts school. Or maybe university.


So to cheer myself up I let slide the no buying plants rule and now own a few yellow label specials. 5 woodland strawberry plants, a apple bramley twig and a pear conference twig.


Unfortunately I've not got the allotment that they will eventually go in. Oops! Has anyone any advice on planting twigs in pots?
