    Morning Bobby Pins, god you’re awful cheery and full of beans this morning, how do you manage it? I’m here with my eyelids propped up on toothpicks waiting for the caffeine to kick in.

  • LynnieDoll says:

    Seriously BobbyPins, you were at deaths door (well not quite) yesterday and look at your now, totally recovered! or have you just decided not to let the lurgy get you down!!!! That’s my girl…

    Have to say I’m a bit ahead of myself this morning, I was in work at 7.30, wrote all my christmas cards, and am now having a well deserved cuppa before I start the day.

    SOAP AND GLORY TOMORROW…… I’ll be legging it to my nearest boots to pick me up a little treat….

  • LynnieDoll says:

    I’ve now just begun singing in my head – Every stop I make, I make a new friend – just turn around, something something something and I’m gone again!!!!!

    Thanks for that BP

  • EvieM says:

    BP take heart, I’m beginning to think being absolutely useless is genetically built into boys. Being momma to a just turned 2 year old I’ve recently noticed that even he expects women to do everything for him. Getting him ready for his bath last night and while I was sorting out towels etc he started roaring for help to get up on our bed….he was calling me to help him, I was in the hall, his father was sitting on the bed beside him. He either thinks women are there to serve him…or he’s cottoned on to the fact that his father is clean useless and momma will always do it better.

    Well, BP, I went to work this morning, threw up part of my breakkie (the tangerine was NOT a good idea), went to see our doctor, she examined me, told me to go home, sleep and drink flat coke because I had lost too much nutrients to be able to stay at work, and she gave me something for the stomach cramps. So I’m back home, in my pjs, watching something about monks in an abbey somewhere in France, they seem to live a rather nice life, really. And they have a HUGE library.

    So I think today I’ll sleep and watch telly. The doctor also told me not to eat unless I was hungry, and rather just drink. Gosh, I don’t remember ever having been so weak before.

    Hope you all have a nice day, I’ll pop in from time to time between naps.

  • Dollface says:

    Oh the frog, that sounds nasty, rest up now so you’re all better for the silly season!

    EvieM – I hear ya girl! My mission is to make my son be someone a Girlf / wife would be proud to take on in the future, capable of picking things up off the floor, putting his own dirty clothes in the laundry basket etc etc :-)

  • EvieM says:

    ((Hugs)) The Frog, feel better

  • EvieM says:

    Dollface, me too, but I’ll go even farther than putting his clothes in the basket, he’ll be taught how to use the washing machine and cook too. My mother introduced you to the washing machine at 12 and if you wanted your clothes washed after that you did it yourself.

  • says:

    Morning ladies,

    Oh my days feel better soon the frog, u poor pet :( xx

    Bobbypins boys are retards, mine used to dote on me, now im the one who makes the dinner, ugh, but in saying that i wouldnt be without him, maybe mr BP will suprise you :) xx

    I have my ‘friends night out’ xmas party sat cant wait, gots to get myself a guna in town tonight after work, hope i see something or ill be going in my festive pjs!!!

    Weeeee only 6 working days till holidays!!

  • Dollface says:

    Exactly EvieM!! My fella just turned 6 so he’s only at the putting his own clothes in the basket stage now but he’ll definitely be graduating to washing machine duty when he’s old enough!! And dishwasher duty, vacuum duty etc etc, ha ha, some of the future mammies of Ireland will be thanking us :-)

  • says:

    BP Maybe we could by a flux capacitor, send them back in time, and somehow get their brains to stay in the ‘honeymoon’ period forever :)

  • EvieM says:

    “heady first three months of a relationship”….hah!! BobbyPins, that’s called sex, I’ve a faint recollection of it but it hasn’t happened much since I had the small man Lol

  • mummypupper says:

    Morning girls

    The frog,big hugs.Isn’t it amazing how quickly a few days of not eating will leave you so weak.A duvet day for you today!

    Ah girls,my precious little boy who adores me and me him,was at a Christmas market with my husband when they happened on a jewellery stall.Will we buy mum a lovely pair of earrings asked my husband….naaah,answers the boy.I had to laugh,he really has maleness genetically imprinted.He frequently gives out to me for,and I quote,wasting our money on rubbish like vases and new duvet covers…!

    Feeling particularly self destructive last night after seeing my big ass self in all my glory in a full length mirror coming down an escalator,I decided to play a game of “who looks older than mum”with my daughter.Turns out the answewr is nobody.Every mother of every school friend I asked about looks younger than me,even her school principal who is in her mid fifties.When I asked her what makes me look so old she replied,totally without malice,your hair,your face,your clothes and your hands…..cripes almighty

  • PinkPanther says:

    Morning ladies. I was in Ireland last weekend or my annual Christmas visit and it’s still so expensive! Even compared to London it was crazy! I don’t know how people afford to go out over there at all. I kept hearing prices are coming down but I didn’t see it.

  • witchgirl26 says:

    Morning all.

    thefrog – hope you feel better soon.

    Was joking bout wanting a day off before Christmas last week and woke up this morning feeling like death warmed up. Sore throat, headache & sneezing. Karma is not my friend. :(

  • LynnieDoll says:

    Sacre Bleu thefrog – you really have a bad dose. But look on the bright side, best you get it now and done and over with so your bright and ready for christmas.

    Ah BP – so ye met just before christmas, how romantic. I bet he’s just trying to make you feel like he’s forgetting.

    Co – good luck with the shopping,I can’t even face a shop at the moment for something to wear for me.

  • PinkPanther says:

    Muppypupper that is hilarious! She probably things aging is a positive thing though, ya know, my mammy is the oldest, therefore she is better than all other mammys!

  • LynnieDoll says:

    Mummypupper – stop it this instant. You are a young, beautiful woman with beautiful (and very direct) children. I will not hear you beat yourself up this day!!! What do kids know? Anyone over 15 is ancient to them.

    witchgirl – it was bound to reach you, we’ve all had it. Feel better soon and get yourself a vesscchhtt!!!!!

  • thefrog says:

    @mummypupper, how old is pupperette? I remember, when I was about 5 or 6, my gran asked me how old I thought she was and I answered “oh, at least 80!”. She was 52 at the time. So, take comfort in the fact that for children “old” is a fairly relative concept ;) or you can use her remarks to justify (if you need a justification) to go shopping or try a new haircut? As a treat?

    Thanks for the get-well wishes, beaut.ies.
    I think my problem was only made worst by general tiredness, the weather (still -8° this morning), and the cold I have been carrying for a week or so. And of course sitting through a rugby game on Saturday night with -2°. But you’re right @mummypupper, it’s amazing how quickly you can lose energy in a couple of days.
    I’m trying to see the bright side and think I’ll be in top form for Christmas, rested and all that.

  • Beth TV says:

    Morning. I wish it was good but it’s not; it’s medoicre out there.

    G’Day Bobbypins; the heads a bit sniffly today, feeling drowsy and the throats sore. If this is the flu jab doing it’s job then send for it’s P 45; I’d rather be sick in style :)

    I’m laughing away at the tales of male laziness here. That shit didn’t go on in our house. Mum often tells people of her going out a week after my sister was born and Dad being more than happy to take over. Anytime she wasn’t around he was well able to cook, wash and do stuff. Though he sucked at sewing and Irish homework :)

    Mummypupper, your daughter clearly needs glasses :)
