Kylie- Nope, no drs yet. Still no appointments. His ear isn't leaking fluidy stuff, its mainly wax. I just don't now what to do.

Danni- I too bottle things up. I don't really open up to people very well, hence why I gave up seeing the counsellor. I couldn't even go to the hospital at one stage without becoming a mess and having an anxiety attack. I used to just look at Lachlans feet and get an anxiety attack blush.gif  sad.gif

Shez- Good luck tonight. I hope you start feeling better soon.

I have a bit of washing and cleaning to do today, will keep popping on.

Morning everyone

Sorry I missed chat last night. I was babysitting the boys from next door so that kept me busy, there was no way Sean was going to bed while they were there so he didn't get to bed until 10 so he is in a bit of a cranky mood. Eamon however went to bed without a peep at 7.30 and didn't get up until 8 this morning  biggrin.gif

Sorry no personals will pop back later, I'm home most of the day. Trying to do cards

Mel bummer about still no appointments, I rang my dr this morning and had a choice of about 4, you can also just turn up and wait too, so different to what you guys have being booked out 2 weeks ahead.

Celeste you are one brave woman, glad you survived.


Cathy are you going to Ali's tomorrow??? if so will bring Grace's hat just in case I can get there.

Morning

Kristy - Loving the sig, good work Syl

Meliss - no more peeking you naughty girl! Cute sig of Sophie too!

Danni - I'm glad you got it sorted out and finally let it all out. I bet you felt like a big rock had been lifted from your shoulders.

Annabel - CUTE photos, especially of Imogen! Your cake was fantastic! I don't do cakes - that is Nanna's job.

Mel - wow, how long do you stay on them for?

Shez - I'm happy for you that you'll be able to work things out too. Good luck.

Karen - glad you're back and that everything has worked itself out. It does teach us that life is too short.

Kylie - I bet your knee is no good from kneeling on the concrete in the garage and painting every night! OMG your BIL. I don't know how all these things work but can't he get a court order or something to get maintenance from her? I have no idea about that stuff.....

Sam - how many people coming to your place for Xmas?  ohmy.gif take it easy girl

Celeste - hooley dooley! Good luck getting the cards done. I posted today!

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE SEND SOME DOCTORS TO WA - apparently there's a shortfall......there you go Mel, just trying to do my bit to help!

I totally forgot we had swimming this morning  wacko.gif There I was having breakfast with Jess at 8.50 and it just popped into my head 'oh crap, we have swimming at 9am'. Such a muddle head. So I rang and we're doing a class this week on Friday instead. So Friday consists of swimming, then $650 of work at the dentist, then chiropractor  wacko.gif

It stinks outside.  Made the biggest mistake of venturing out to the shops and now I feel sick from the smokiness.  I'm with all the other Vic girls ~ so much for me hanging washing outside  sad.gif

Does anyone know of a good White Christmas recipe?  There was a great one on Fresh a few weeks ago using marshmallows and for the life of me I can't find that recipe anywhere!!  Grrrr ..

Oh yeah, and did anyone watch Weeds last night?  Really 'different' series.  Not sure if I have made my mind up about it yet.

And has anyone's toddler turned into a vocal kid while going through the shops?  Tyler has started a new habit where he just yells for no reason and I grit my teeth everytime as he does it to be a little sh*t!  Grrrrr ...


Natalie ~ With Christmas Day I have about 10 people coming round for lunch (includes niece & nephews) on Robert's side, then for dinner we have got 4 people coming round as my cheeky b*tch of a sister has invited a friend without asking us (not happy Jan!)  I'll be stuffed by Boxing Day!!

I hate cleaning!!!!

Natalie- I am still on the tablets now, I have been on them for about 15 months now. I still have bad days though. Thanks for the call for dr's lol. We definately need them.

Does anyone know how to fix the toolbar thing on the comp. For some reason when I am on internet explorer I have lost the part where you type in web addresses and that. I have no idea why its done it.

Forgot to add.

Emma's tooth looks like it is going to fall out. I am just scared that the whole thing will fall out and that no new tooth will grow. Is that possible? I am very nervous unsure.gif

Mel ~ I have no idea.  I use Mozilla.

Found that White Chocolate Crackle recipe I was looking for.  Here it is if you guys are interested.  I'll be making it for Christmas as it sounds delicious:

White Chocolate Christmas Crackles

60g butter, chopped
1/4 cup (60ml) cream
50g white marshmallows
200g white chocolate melts
4 cups (140g) rice bubbles
1/2 cup (140g) christmas M&M's (red and green only)
2 teaspoons silver cachous

Line 16 muffin pans or 24 patty pans with paper cases.
Combine butter, cream, marshmallows and chocolate in a large saucepan stir over low heat, stir in rice bubbles. Cool for 10 minutes.
Stir mixture well, then stir in half of the m & m's. Divide mixture among paper cases. Sprinkle with the cachous and remaining m & m's. Refrigerate until set.

Mel as long as the adult tooth wasn't damaged then it will come through, it could take a few years, I was without my two front teeth for about 7!!!!  as it will still come down when it was going to if she didn't damage the baby one.

Natalie I hope it is just from being on the concrete floor from painting, then I have an excuse no tto do anymore  tongue.gif  as for BIL well we think SIL is going to go for custody of the kids and since she is the mother and earns a pretty good wage we think she has a good chance of getting them.  will be interesting to see what happens.

Sorry Sam never made white christmas so can't help you, am making my chocolate cheesecake for our dessert and a big santa cake for the kids, we have 9 adults and 5 kids at lunch then prob another 2 adults and 5 kids for dinner!!!!  it's going to be a long day adn I start on call that day for work so can see I will get a few calls as everyone tries to use their new chirssy presents (mobiles) and they have issues.

am waiting for our big boss to turn up for a presentation, better be here soon as need to go at 2.30, had to walk out of the last one as had to go do a job at another site, so don't want to draw attention to myself again.

hmmm think I need a new sig, might have to take some chrissy photo's......

Posted 13 December 2006 - 12:18 PM

YAY Emma, first visit from the tooth fairy.

Mel at least you don't have to worry about it falling out now.  But don't panic if it takes a while for the next one to come through, as I said I was without mine for 7 years after I lost my 2 front ones in an accident.  Still can't whistle to this day cause of the big gap I had.

#16 mel83

Posted 13 December 2006 - 12:27 PM

Sam - that recipe sounds delicious since its a choc and marshmallow white xmas, not a fruity one. can you post it into MSN for us?

Mel, right click on any tool bars above and tick the 'address bar' to get it back. I hope that works

Congrats to Emma (I can hear the little wings flapping away now)

Syl - 4 kids, the tooth fairy would go broke in your place. I remmeber getting 50 cents, boy have times changed!
