    Hello there!

    Feeling a bit better (or at least calmer), thanks BP. Put a lot of cream on my arms to try and calm the redness, but they still look like I’ve been locked in a cage with very angry cats. Counting the days now till the 29/04, and also till the holidays in Istanbul (3 weeks).

    Still snowing today. I’ve dropped all pretence at wearing work clothes. I’m wearing a pair of jeans tucked in my rubber boots (great idea I had to ask for a pair for Xmas), no more skirts and changing shoes once at work!

    Have a nice day. BP, enjoy the burgers and the tennis. Burgers seem to belong to another planet, the weather here calls for tartiflette….

  • thefrog says:

    @Có: have a plan ready with the type of car you’d like, the price, and how much you can afford to pay every months for the loan. That will show them that you’re serious and can be trusted. Good luck.

    Thanks ladies, ill draw up a plan in work when I get in!!

    Morning girlies

    Co,good luck,and remember,you’re giving them your business,don’t feel intimidated,there’s plenty more lenders out there.

    Bp,good to hear you sounding chipper and here’s another reason to feel bright.When you come home,we won’t be loosing you after an hour of blathering!!!

    The frog,I just read your comments from yesterday,hope you’re feeling alright.I don’t care what remark you passed or what your people skills are,there’s no excuse for her reaction.For a lady that’s not very competent at doing her job,she has no trouble being an absolute biatch to you.She could have made her point in a reasonable calm manner,there was no need to have such a go at you.Sorry to bring it all up again,you’ve probably moved on from it by now but I didn’t want you being so hard on yourself just because you passed a careless remark.We’ve all done that,her reaction was out of proportion and I hope she apologises today.

    Well,it had to happen,pupperette now has the bug,I was woken by the sound of puking.Am lying here between the two of them,it’s a bit squashy to say the least.At least himself working from home today in case I need to do something urgent,like go to the loo or eat.Gonna be a looooong day,yes siree,a long un!!

    Best of luck Co.

    The Frog, what’s a tartiflette? I’m holding you responsible for the head on me this morning, I dug into a bottle of wine in sympathy last night, (not at all because the small man’s whinging and whining had driven me to it) I had a good sized glass and a half, and was a little tipsy. Feeling a bit “off” this morning. I’d muffle himself up and send him out the back to play only I’m afraid he’ll lamp himself off something slipping over in the remnants of yesterdays snow.

    Bobbypins, good to hear from you. How’re you feeling pet? You sound cheery enough, I hope things are starting to look up for you.

  • EvieM says:

    Ooh Mummypupper that sucks, poor pupperettes. Hope everyones feeling better soon and….Rather you that me, ba ha haha….sorry couldn’t help myself.

  • thefrog says:

    @mummypupper: thanks for your comments. A lot.
    Sorry for pupperette, poor thing. And it’s so exhausting this vomiting bug. Take care of yourself and of your little ones. A lot of TV for the 3 of you!

    @EvieM: tartiflette is one of those caloric bomb we have in France. Potatoes, lardons and onions, with a whole Reblochon cheese made to melt over it. Serve with salad to pretend you’re having a healthy meal. Oh, and don’t forget the white wine! (Maybe you can skip the wine in your case. I did sleep very well, but I had chouchen – mead – so maybe it’s not as bad for the hea as normal wine?)

  • Belle says:

    @the frog. I also get that KP stuff on my arms and find that normal mosituriser is no good for it. I use one called Eucerin and its really good! It tends to clear it right up if you keep using it consistently. Really moisturises your skin as well!

  • thefrog says:

    Thanks @Belle. For the KP, I’m trying scrubing and moisturising, and if it doesn’t work, I’ll give Eucerin a go. The redness I was refering to this morning is a different one, self-induced through stress.

    @BP, get the coffee, I’ll get the pastries!

  • EvieM says:

    I’m feeling a bit better after some breakfast, this more a dodgy stomach than a sore head, so far anyway. Why is white wine so acidy? Still I suppose the entire roll of garlic bread I ate (to soak up the alcohol of course) probably didn’t help either. Must go for a walk to the post office later to post latest swap, hopefully that’ll clear the fuzziness from my brain.

  • Shygirl says:

    Morning all. Ye are all bright and early again today. I have so much to do today its unbelievable! My day off for myself will have to wait until Friday!

  • EvieM says:

    Morning Shygirl, When is the 2nd interview?

  • says:

    Just caught up on the end of yday blather, shygirl well done and good luck :)

    EvieM unlucky on the hangover mate!!

    Rang HMRC about my tax back, they posted a cheque on Dec 20th, it must b f’in lost in the post if it hasnt arrived from the UK to Ireland in a month, im devo, have to wait another 6 weeks now, really needed that mula to help with the car :(

  • Orla says:

    Morning girls – sorry I ddin’t get back online last night.

    Shygirl congrats on the 2nd interview!
    Orna I’d be getting it alone because I don’t know what the story is with him and it would be too messy if/when we break up.
    thefrog – wow that woman sounds like a b.. try not to take it personally and think about your new position where you’ll be valued for the person you are and won’t have people taking their bad moods out on you. Hope the poor arms are ok x
    Có thefrog is right re the loan. If you go in knowing what you want and what you can afford you’re more likely to get it :)
    oh mummypupper, sounds like a busy day for you :(

    Housemate lined up 5 people to come view the house yesterday including 2 we had said no to! Out of 5 there was only one ‘maybe’ & we felt she was forcing us to choose even though we asked her about 8 times to book more viewings for the rest of the week. She’s unbelievable – suddenly decides to move out &all of a sudden we’re under pressure to choose someone we don’t know to live with us. It’s true – you really shouldn’t live with your friends!! Even though I lived with her before and she wasn’t such a selfish b..

    Hope everyone has a lovely day – I’m going to pop to the kitchen to make a nice round of tea – can I get anything for ye?

    Morning peeps,

    shattered this morning went to friends house for dinner and stayed over, couldn’t for the life of me get to sleep. My friends apartment is so noisy. There was water pumps going all night, people banging doors all over the place and she lives near luas and I could hear each and everyone that passed the block.Think max I had about 3 hours.
    I’ll be propping my eyelids open with match sticks.

    TheFrog- Just caught up on yesterdays blather. The lady obviously knows she has problems with IT and you made an innocent joke and because she is sensitive about the issue she took it to heart. That is not your fault. They are her issues. Instead of coming attacking you she would be better off organising to doing an IT course or coming to you and asking you to help her with her IT problems before you go. You can’t blame yourself for other peoples issues.

  • Shygirl says:

    My interview is tomorrow at ten

  • EvieM says:

    Hey Beauties, just seen on facebook that Urban Decay are bringing out limited edition palettes for the new Oz the great & powerful film, they look gorgeous. Any chance of a review on them??

  • thefrog says:

    Thanks for all the kind remarks ladies. I know I made a mistake (wrong place, wrong time for the remark), but I’m glad I’m not the only one to think that her reaction was inappropriate.

    @LoCo, it’s difficult to sleep in unfamiliar environment. I’m so used to sleep in complete silence and darkness that I find it very difficult to sleep in different conditions. Early night for you (nap at work?)

  • Morning Beauties,

    Its a chilly zero degrees in Cork today!! I’ve leggings under my black pants to try n keep some heat in my bones!! Sorry I haven’t been commenting but I’ve been reading the blather late in the evenings the last few weeks!

    I have a question for you ladies, my bf booked Edinburgh for my bday as my present, a lovely surprise I thought. We’re going Friday week (woo hoo) My Buuuurthday is the Sunday!
    Can any of you recommend somewhere nice to go for dinner. I wanna get dressed up and go out, somewhere nice, but not too pricey.
    Also is it true that the place is freeezing and flats are essential at all times due to the cobbles?
