      I've seen pictures - you look pretty tidy to me.

      I think, honestly, they are looking a gift horse in the mouth. I would - in their position - find it very hard to refuse such a universe-given gift. Although mum cannot look after three, father could - that is an option, post mat leave. They are in much, much better financial straits that we are. For us an additional child would mean abject poverty, for them it is a lifestyle readjustment... I'm stunned that they are hesitating, but I defend their right to do so. My anger falls on the obs who is making this more complicated than it should be - if they are certain the earliest resolution is the best one.
      I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

      • Thanks, photo shops great ain't it, only jesting!

        I wander if it's that it doesn't fit into their "plan", which is sad, if they can get by as I don't think you can always plan everything, and this came for free! You're right it is their choice and I agree with you on that that right, I wander what's the ob's trying to achieve?

          I think the obs is either pro-choice or pro-pay-packet. When I discover who it is I shall have the answer. Advising them to wait until the scan is cruel...

            • My father specialises in salty expressions, one of which is: shit or get off the pot. I often channel my father, which is why I've just given a similar broadside to my 'girlfriend'.

                • midnight: milk, sultanas, lick of p'nut butter
                  B: yoghurt, coffee
                  L: cote du rhone,tuna, salsa, tiny bit smoked salmon, small lump stilton
                  D: beef stroganoff with peas and carrots, burgundy

                  Long day at work. Very dull. Post-insomnia ghastliness. Plans for husband's 40th continue apace...

                  • B: yoghurt, coffee
                    L: scrambled eggs (3) in butter and turmeric, mushroom
                    D: roast lamb and roast veggies: beetroot, butternut squash, brussels, carrots, large glass of Bordeaux

                    Made the leftover (I deliberately over cook to make best use of the oven) butternut and carrots into a soup with coconut milk and Thai red curry stylings for work lunches next week.

                    Finally hemmed a skirt I hacked a year and a half ago. Result? Looks awful. Hmmm.

                    I have a suspicion the 'girlfriend' who proclaims herself a 'lesbian through and through' is a man. Never a dull moment.

                      I love that expression.... and used it often on my children..... needless to say, they have potty mouths too!

                        • I love that the hemming of the skirt took precedence over the transsexual
                          "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

                          In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

                            A stitch in time and all that.

                            Today I worked on the current patchwork quilt. It's hit the point in the project all quilts reach sooner or later - I think it's going to look terrible, so I've decided to change the design...and now I need to go BUY MORE FABRIC. Also, I'm lusting to start the next quilt, which will be so much more beautiful than the current labour (there's a life lesson there and no mistake). That said, the blooming things usually come good in the end and - so far - the recipients have told me how amazingly perfect the designs are. It doesn't help, of course, that this one is earmarked for the in-laws who we are feeling pretty meh towards at the moment.

                            I also did a bit of batch cooking - ratatouille with feta - for work lunches. I like to think of it as hot Greek salad with aubergine rather than ratatouille though as I've had some shockers over the years. Later in the afternoon I made a couple of loaves of banana bread for the boys' breakfasts (husband told small boy he could have shop-bought waffles with maple syrup and ice cream for breakfast this morning - I'd rather let them eat homemade cake). While the oven was on I roasted some Kent pumpkin with soy sauce, Chinese rice wine, five spice and ginger - ready to add to beef for dinner tonight.

                            B: yoghurt, sultanas, two coffees, one Irish the other sober
                            L: ratatouille with feta, banana
                            D: beef stir fry - beef, celery, pumpkin, onion, red capsicum, spinach with egg fried rice for the boys, mushrooms for me

                            The next quilt is going to be made out of batiks in purples with hints of green, blue, pink (think sunrise over the sea) in a starburst pattern made out of diamonds a bit like this:

                              • The starter fabric for this quilt is even more beautiful than that pic, Annie, and we found it on the Iggles when we were visiting my parents. It's stunning all purples and aquas, pinks and greens. I'm rather scared to cut it up. Every quilt starts with a inspiration fabric that becomes the guiding light for the entire piece. This design has been pre-approved by husband, so I have hopes that I might get to keep the starburst quilt and even use it! However, I cannot start until the quilt I'm currently sewing is finished - otherwise the house would be full of half- or quarter-done projects.

                                That said, I've found a wholesale batik place online...
