Thanks ladies...I just read back (and have learned much about topics that a bloke would never know!) and noticed a few cool comments from you all. Much appreciated.
My fiancee, as i thought, was sort of impressed that i had joined your thread...but at the same time, she looked a tad worried too. Cant work that one out!!!
Caro - I heard that too about the swine flu vaccine, I wonder if we will get a letter from the doctor or anything? Do we know whether there are any side effects?
((((JT)))) You're doing great and haven't sounded bitter at all. If you conceived Ted without too much trouble then there's not reason why you shouldn't again - I took 3 months the first time, then 4 months with Sophie, then a miraculous one month this time! It doesn't sound long when you look back but it feels like forever at the time - hang in there and try to "go with the flow" and not worry too much (says the world's biggest worrier ).
I'm feeling really tired tonight but I've got an assignment to do (hence the procrastinating!). Sorry if I've missed people but my memory seems to be failing tonight...
For Isabelle's room? Ooh, not sure.......I too am one of those people who finds it hard to tell from one little sample what it will look like. When we chose M's material (animals and alphabets - she'd better not grow out of them too fast!) I did get about 15 free samples from 5 different curtain companies, before choosing, becasue like you I didn't want to make a mistake. Sorry, not much help there!
M will have the swine flu jab. I feel far happier giving it to her than I would giving it to a pregnant me, although had I been pregnant I would have researched it very hard before deciding, and then probably have had it. M and I have already had our normal flu jabs this yr, and I have it every yr. Dates back to boarding school when we all had to have it - I've never had flu and I'd like to keep it that way.
Plodded my 4 miles tonight, slowly and with a stitch for most of it.
Hubby still not right, and supposed to be going away tomorrow-Tues up to the lakes for some walking/climbing and seeing friends. I really hope he makes a miraculous recovery and is still able to go.
I'm still not sure about the swine flu jab but haven't been offered it yet anyway. Will have to have a long think about it when I do get offered it - I am still on maternity leave at the moment and live in the sticks so can sort of chose weather to be around people however hubbys work has just had a load of staff have to go off to look after their kids as a local school had an outbreak so you never know where it may come from I spose.
Nice run with club tonight.
Wow, busy on here!
Vixo - thanks for the input on the swine flu jab. Something that we've been thinking about in recent days. We've decided JP will have it when it becomes available. I don't think I could forgive myself if he got it and I could've done something to prevent it. Absolutely love the fabric sample! Totally in awe of you making curtains too - something I'd never attempt, but would love to have the skills. I'm a dab hand at mending things, but don't really do anything creative (well, I do knit, but only simple things!). We paid a fortune for our living room curtains to be made - we have an awkward-shaped window. They do look nice though.
Julie - wow, a pilot! How cool is that! My hubby would love to do his PPL - he's always on about it... For now he'll have to make do with his flight simulator though, as it is a bit too expensive!
Caro - hope you still get to go away tomorrow and that the weather's not too bad when you're there!
CC - aaarggh, 17 days!! Yikes. Guess you've still got time to treat yourself to a new backpack though? Would be a worthwhile investment for your comfort on such a long jaunt. I am still tempted by the idea of an ultra, you know... Will do one next year, I think, after the marathon (well, not straight after!).
Can't remember now what anyone said on the previous page, and can't click back or I will lose my post! So sorry if I miss anyone! Ben's birthday today, so we've just had a nice quiet evening in (didn't go to club - I know, naughty, but the weather is so foul here, I don't think I'd have been able to stay on my feet, it's so windy!). Have eaten far too much chocolate and biscuits though, oops. Going for a steady 6-7 tomorrow morning to make up for it! But then we are going out for a Chinese on Sunday (late b.day celebration!) so I shall have to make sure I earn that too with a good long run!
Vixo - I really like that fabric for a girls room. My girls have this one in their room. We had a roman blind made but the window is very narrow so it doesn't loook too bad. It must have been a book of the same type of fabrics - I tried to persuade the girls to go for spots but they wanted stripes. Good to do it now before I has her own opinion!
Oh I don't know what to make of this swine flu. Interesting to hear other people thoughts on it.
Also still not been offered jab, and neother have my boys. Both have asthma and have just turned 3, so pretty vulnerable I'd say. I need to postpone the boys asthma clinic appt too from today, so will ask the unhelpful receptionist again when I ring up. I think I hve pretty much decided to have it and give it to the boys. I have had a cold now for nearly 4 weeks, so makes me think that my immune system is severely compromised just now, so I should have it to make sure. I'd never forgive myself if my two became really ill with it as well.
Not had the best couple of days. Harry and I seem to have picked up a tummy bug on top my sickness and cold. Not a wonderful time at all. I do hope this all passes soon. I couldn't bare it if it went on all the way through.
Right best get on. We're off to my brothers this afternoon and I have to pack etc.
Julie not sure if I said welcome before- I have eldest (19yrs), Tom (2y8m) & Archie (just 1yr). ONly did occasional bursts of execise over the yrs but have been running since Feb & loving it. Went out with a pilot once but it certainly wasn't glamorous in his glorified microlight & I froze every time we went up....
Swine Flu- Archie has had the jab but Tom can't until they stocks of the egg free as he has an egg allergy. We'd all have it if we could.
CC- Good luck getting your kit sorted, it's 1 hassel you could do without as just completing the ultra is going to be a challenge.
Good club reps for me last night, helped take my mind off the fact the eldest hasn't been in touch
Tatty not me going away - only hubby. M and I are having a girlie wk end, and I've got a friend coming over on Sunday. Hubbygoing to the lake district......hope he's packed his flippers.
Vixo yes I am generally pro vaccinations, when you think of the amazing advances in modern medicine over the yrs and how many lives have been saved. I think we are generally more blase in the developed world because we don't see alot of the common, preventable diseases. I'd say the most common preventable disease I see on a day to day basis is myxomatosis, and if an unvaccinated rabbit gets it, there is only 1 option, and it doesn't involve a live bunny at the end of it! I know there have been some horrible mistakes over the yrs (everyone automatically thinks of thalidomide) but I would hope that in this day and age everything is tested to the gunnels. They were saying on the today prog this morning that teh swine flu vac is only a slightly tweaked version of the bird flu vac, when it was presumed that that would cause a pandemic, so it has actually been round for longer than most people think.
