The sun is out. It's freezing cold. Willow woke me at 6am. There are 2 goldfinches on the bird feeders.

There was something really important I had to tell you all this morning but I forgot what it was. :sorry:

Claire

My legs itch! From the knee down. Driving me mad!

Deb
06-03-2009, 08:34 AM
Here Claire. Have some calamine lotion.

Sunny here but very frosty - pretty though :yes: Loads of bluetits on my fatball feeder that is hanging only 3 inches from the window, and I only hung it there last night. They're fast learners those birds. And my housebound cat Lola is very happy at having a floorshow to watch.

I had a dream last night that I had a new programme put onto my laptop, and instead of Googling, I had to Snarkle :unsure:

Sun is shining,freezing cold,still in bed.

Jack at home with poorly tummy :(

Skywatcher
06-03-2009, 08:52 AM
Oooo I like the idea of a snarkle

Goldfinches - very jealous - our birds are only just finding the feeders again after our holiday.

Sorry to hear about Jack - Chinese and 3-4 episodes of Green Wing tonight I think :D

Has cooled down a smidgen here at last. Still 27/81 which is not cold by any means but not as bad as it has been!

We are hopefully going to see Watchmen this weekend - hope it's good!

Claire
06-03-2009, 09:00 AM
I want chinese. :sigh: Thanks for the lotion Deb. No birds here due to presence of cat. Off to Snarkle Watchman!

Sunny but chilly here in Liverpool.

Off out this morning for a coffee and chat with Trish (who some of you know from other forums) so it will be Disney chat non stop as we are both going this year:)

presence of cat may lead to presence of fleas may lead to itching of calves

PMSL* Snarkle.....

Burn your bed too Claire... bedbugs.... then burn your wardrobe contents then burn your wardrobe just in case... then burn... oh sod it just burn the whole house down and tell DH when he gets home there will be no tea....

Dizneyblonde
06-03-2009, 10:34 AM
Or get some flea spray :)

Skywatcher
06-03-2009, 10:36 AM
yes that was more the lines I was thinking....

Claire
06-03-2009, 10:38 AM
Panic over - I've shaved the cat.

Deb
06-03-2009, 10:40 AM
Actually, I was thinking she may just have changed her washing powder or something :unsure: I mean, why would the fleas just stop at her knees?

Maybe she could Snarkle "itchy legs below the knees" and see what it comes up with.

Deb
06-03-2009, 10:45 AM
Panic over - I've shaved the cat.

Oh dear. Has the itching stopped? Or did the fleas just jump ship onto you? It's frosty today so please make sure you put a little hat and coat on the cat.

itchy spots below the knees as classic flea bites - they live in the carpets and can only jump so high , of course there are other reasons but it is one possibility - oh and not everyone will get the itchy bumps it all depends on if you are allergic to the bites or not

it can happen in any house with pets its not a dirt thing at all

You make me laugh. :hug2:

Have you tried shaving your legs Claire?

Tink
06-03-2009, 11:35 AM
Hello. Friday. Whoohooo! I get to go home today. :D

Seth comes today. :D :D :D (Well, later toward the evening, but you get the idea).

I actually may not have to stay away from home next week. That will be a welcome change. I have loads of administrative work to do, so staying put will be most efficient. :D

It's cold here in miserable Jax. :( 37 degrees last night. It's about 40 or so right now.

We are planning on visiting AK on Saturday. We've not been there in ages and I am looking forward to FINALLY trying Everest! :D :D

The young woman I've called in to assist me this week is from Newcastle! :D Delightful person, and very detail oriented. Just what I needed to accomplish the rather complex resolution for this community.

So, off to the community shortly to conduct an exit interview, and then hopefully on the road home. It's Bike Week ( :unsure: ) I think, so I'm expecting traffic. :sigh:

Take care and I'll see you all a bit later! :wave:

Wendy
06-03-2009, 11:40 AM
:207: :207: woohoo Seth is coming to stay give him a huge hug and kiss from me :D

Tink, please tell me you aren't taking him on Everest :unsure: he's too small surely :fingers:

It's good news you can stay home next week :D

Drive home carefully :hug2: :hug2:

Tink
06-03-2009, 11:43 AM
Oh! I hadn't thought about taking him! :eek: But I will tell you this, if he is tall enough he will want to go! :eek: The kid is fearless. He threw his hands up in the air on Splash Mountain! Totally freaked us out.

We'll have to see about that one, Wendy! I surely will give him a hug and kiss from you. He sort of has you all rolled up as "Tink's Wennie" in his mind. Rather profound, eh? :D :D

I can just imagine your faces on Splash Mountain :lol: :lol: He's way braver than me :lol: I just watch it and it makes me feel sick :lol: not that it would do me any good if I went on it anyway with my head :lol:

Awww bless him :hug2: :hug2:

Deb

Must be good, must be good...

:nono::nono::nono:

:D

Re the fleabites...you know sometimes I forget you're a real life proper Doctor and everything. I think you live in a tower with your telescope :D

If you were lying down on the carpet then they could jump high enough to bite you everywhere couldn't they? :unsure:

lisaw
06-03-2009, 12:05 PM
Enjoy Seth and Everest Tink - that is my most favourite ride ever! :D

DS is 11 on Sunday :eek:

He and a friend are going to Mercedes World tomorrow to do an off road experience - they did the skids and track stuff last year, back here for pizza afterwards, then the adults get to eat :D

Family round on Sunday when he gets back from baseball training (he wouldn't miss that birthday or no birthday!) I am attempting a baseball field cake :unsure:

Tink
06-03-2009, 12:07 PM
Oh! Sounds lovely Lisa!!! You'll show us, please? :yes: :9:

Happy Birthday to your young man!

He'll be fine on Everest. If I can do it anybody can. :thumbsup:

The sun is finally out here so I'm feeling a bit cheerier today.

Claire
06-03-2009, 12:59 PM
No fleas in this house! Cat gets jab at the vets every 6 months and charges us 70 for the honour. :sigh: I'm thinking the itch has something to do with the return of the cold weather, snowed here yesterday, coupled with me having the heating on 24 hrs a day? Plus I shaved them yesterday with a different razor.

Dizneyblonde
06-03-2009, 01:02 PM
A different one to hubby's you mean :lol:

Claire
06-03-2009, 01:10 PM
A different one to hubby's you mean :lol:

God help anyone who touches his razor! It's actually not here Mon-Fri so I bought those fancy ones that you don't need shaving gel with as it's already on it. I wonder if that is the reason? :unsure:

Britchick

presence of cat may lead to presence of fleas may lead to itching of calves


ahh but cat present lead to more bees lead to more red clover :yes:


tgif is all i can say, had two sleepless nights due to reminding dog not to lick bandage, boy has gone to germany for 4 nights with the school. Caitlin and i are having a baking day tomorrow, quiches for the freezer and cupcakes then bobotie for tea. Can't wait

Taja
06-03-2009, 02:29 PM
Ahhhhhh! Friday! :D

I am ready for it this week! Drama at the office and the CPAs' offices. :rolleyes: I'm taking work home with me so I don't have to see any of them this weekend. :yes:

Weather has cooled off a bit--high 80s (might have been in the low 90s) a few days ago; down to low 70s now. Overnight lows dropped from 60s to 40s. :sigh: It would be so nice if our weather would just change gradually rather than this constant hemming and hawing! :lol:

More yard work this weekend. We have bulk trash pick-up the first week of April, so I need to have as much as possible done by then so I don't have to chop everything into tiny bits to fit it into the dumpster.

Happy weekend to everyone! :)

Tink, if the Sethboy is 44" or taller, he's a "GO" for Expedition Everest!!! Big hugs to the little man...hope you all have a blast!

TGIF here as well...it's raining...but it's warm(ish)...so the rain is turning the 14 inches of snow into a big piggin' mess of mud and blech.

Supposed to be nearly 60 tomorrow though :thumbsup:

I have a rare weekend alone with the kids...Jon is off to Maine with his mom to visit family. I'm staying here with the kids as I have a wedding shower on Sunday. I miss him when he's gone, but I do enjoy it just being "the three of us" every now and again...we're off to the movies as well...Andrew's vote is The Watchman, while Baleigh is lobbying for "Confessions of a Shopaholic" :D They've agree to a double header so far, if he'll see her's, she'll see his :rolleyes: this may get expensive.

Dawn
06-03-2009, 03:43 PM
I think the school library carpet has fleas. I have bites on my ankles.

I need to find wash out red hair gel/mousse type stuff for next Friday. Maybe I should try Snarkling. :lol:

lisaw
06-03-2009, 03:48 PM
I know it probably scares you to go in there but Claires normally have red hairspray etc in for Red Nose Day :lol:

Dawn
06-03-2009, 03:50 PM
I can't go in that shop.

The horror...the horror...

Britchick
06-03-2009, 03:57 PM
i'm wearing the eric and ernie tshirt with strategically placed red noses and red underpants over my trousers. I think i shall make next friday a paperwork day :yes:

What happens if you google snarkle?

Britchick
06-03-2009, 04:01 PM
What happens if you google snarkle?

*faints* why would you do that?

Beccaberry
06-03-2009, 04:11 PM
Someone care to explain to me what "red nose day" is, or shall I snarkle it?

sorry Becca it's a fundraising thing where comedians put on a long show and ask us for money on the TV - like a telathon but around that date lots of people do things to raise money too, the theme this year is 'do something funny for money' hence the weird attire for work

http://www.comicrelief.com/

obviously people are getting different definitions of snarkle to me :unsure:

Beccaberry
06-03-2009, 04:18 PM
Very awesome! :thumbsup:

can you snarkle with a snorkle?

Dawn
06-03-2009, 06:03 PM
I think it would be essential actually.

Today is my flex day so I got to sleep in which was lovely!

No plans for the weekend. The weather has warmed up a bit and the snow is all melted. It is a big muddy mess.

Deb
06-03-2009, 08:54 PM
You know what scares me?? I have never even heard of snarkling before and just dreamed it. I am now scared for my sanity and am going to sleep with matchsticks keeping my eyes open so I can never dream again :unsure:

Deb, this grossness is all your fault!!

Ursula
06-03-2009, 10:46 PM
It just gets worse!

Deb
07-03-2009, 07:10 AM
I'm really really sorry. I have no idea what it says about the state of my murky mind that I can dream a word that I've never heard and is so disgusting. Lock me in that cupboard Helly :surrender:

Tink, I hope you have a lovely day at AK with darling Seth :hug2:

Dawn
07-03-2009, 07:46 AM
*attacks Deb with fork*

That'll learn ya! :evil:

Tink
08-03-2009, 03:58 PM
WHAT IN THE SAM HILL ARE YOU DOING DAWN!!!!???? :nono:

GIVE ME that fork. *snatches it from Dawn, quite sharply and tucks it in Tink's box of treasures* That'll be the end of forks for you, MISS!

Now then. Are you after permanently losing your cattle prod? :nono:

We had a lovely day, Deb. :yes: The brave little buggie went on Everest with me! :eek: He did have a few moments of being frightened, but claimed he wasn't when all was said and done. I shall never ride it again, however! :eek: Whomever said it was no more than BTMRR... :eek:

Ursula
08-03-2009, 04:01 PM

Dawn got in trouble Dawn got in trouble.

Tink

Helly. That does not become you, Miss. :dozey:

Ursula
08-03-2009, 04:06 PM
Helly has her eyes shut tight and can't see anything....

Tink
08-03-2009, 04:06 PM
You are not deaf, Miss. Closing your eyes does you no good what so ever. *sniff*

Deb
08-03-2009, 04:12 PM
You know, I'm having a few twinges now you come to mention it :unsure: Hope you weren't too late confiscating that fork Tink!

I'm glad you had such a great time!!! What a brave little man!! But of course you'll go on it again...next time you go and he wants you to go with him you'll melt!! :yes:

Deb
08-03-2009, 04:27 PM
Oh err...I just realised that Him and I are going away for a lovely 3 night break in a 5 star hotel on Thursday. Do you think it's best if I cancel, seeing as the fork has touched me ? :unsure: I don't really want to take any chances :nono:

Ursula
08-03-2009, 08:41 PM
Oh lordy the fork touched you?......

09-03-2009, 12:11 AM
Glad you had a wonderful time with Seth, Tink!

I still haven't ridden Everest. Here's hoping I won't be injured on my next WDW visit! :rolleyes:

Tink
09-03-2009, 12:44 AM
Was that you, Johnie? :lol:

It's very jerky, I thought. I found it a fairly uncomfortable ride. Not as bad as the Matterhorn, but not smooth by any means.

He cried today when it was time to go home. :(

Johnie
09-03-2009, 12:46 AM
awww poor baby :sorry: Did you cry too?

It is a pretty jerky ride. I think BTMRR is worse though. So is SM.

Tink
09-03-2009, 12:48 AM
Oh gosh no. If we cried along with him, we'd all still be at the door crying! :eek:

He and his Da are supposed to be coming back next weekend though. :D :D

Johnie
09-03-2009, 12:49 AM
:tongue: I'm a big mush, I'd probably cry right along with him. But yay! he gets to come back next weekend.

Tink
09-03-2009, 12:51 AM
It's not the easiest thing...but we can distract him anymore. Back when he was younger there was no distracting him. He'd cling to us like a little monkey and sob his heart out. That's partially because we were crying along with him. :sigh:

We are more ready for it now and work hard not to make it worse! :eek:

Ursula
09-03-2009, 02:09 AM
Aw bless him X
