Hope you feel better soon Nic.

Alright, better sing (squawk!) with my precious girl. BBL

Just reposting this from the end of previous thread!

 

SECRET SANTA:

 

Okay girls Anne and i have met and plans are underway! This is the final list....we think! If you are not there and we forgot you SORRY! PLease let one of us know ASAP. Likeways if you are on the list and no longer want to be.

 

Jo

Deanne

Shelly

Samantha(sienisob)

Michelle

Nic

Lara

Mish(mishymilo)

Tanya

Peta

Anne

Leonie

possibly Sam (puzzlepieces)??

 

We have decided that a limit will be between $15 and $25(allowing for those that may need to post their present) but please to not spend any less than $15 so as that we can all get a nice gift!

 

Now because christmas is such a busy time we will make the FINAL date for receiving gifts Fri the 11th December, so if you are going to post your gift remember to post it with plenty of time!! Anne and i will keep a record of who has who so if someone doesnt get their gift we will know who didnt send it and decide whether to out them in here or not. Saying that as nicely as possible !

 

You will all get a Pm from either Anne or myself on Friday sometime, happy shopping and Merry Christmas!!!

 

 

Oh and could everyone involved do a short post with 3 things they love and 3 things they DONT love, t give their SS a helping hand!!

I would be happy with anything but some of my faves are:

chocolate or anything food focussed

red wine/sparkling wine

reading

crafty stuff, such as card making bits and pieces.

 

I dislike:

I honestly can't think of any dislikes, I would be happy with anything.

 

 

Gotta go. At work. Should be doing stuff but I need to powder my nose urgently first :whistle:

 

Jo: :hugs: Oh and :excite: re Ella and her toilet training. That is excellent news. I firmly believe that they just do it when they are ready.

Rohan - congratulations and welcome to the group.

 

Sam - glad to hear that your move is almost over.

 

Anne/leonie - well done on organising the secret santa stuff. I am doing it for my parents group and I know how much of a pain it can be but in the end it is also lots of fun.

 

Jo - I think I already said congrats on the new piano. Congrat on Ella's tting. I know you had a tting question and I need to go back and read now. :)

 

Just in case anybody is interested. We got an email yesterday to say that the dogs that killed our dog are being destroyed at the end of the week. The owner ended up surrendering the dogs to domestic services.

Impressive work Alex!!

 

 

SS stuff i'm probably the opposite to Nic!

I love bath stuff, photo frames and really love scented candles, chocolate etc etc etc!!

 

I dislike:

dark chocolate

fruit cake

 

Deanne, you dont dislike anything? You're too nice!!

 

Jo: Very exciting about your piano, sorry i didnt post before i was just focusing on getting the SS list on and hadnt really read posts! Sounds like Ella is getting the hang of this pretty quickly! And i cant remember how we kept Jack out of the toilet when Blake was toilet training but i also dont remember it ever being a problem. Not much help there sorry!

 

Lara: Im glad to hear that about those dogs,im glad their owners realised it was the right thing to do, it could easily have been achild next. SO sorry about your dog though. Looked through your QLD photos on Fb looks great. I remember you saying Angus got sick up there, what actually happened?

 

Samantha: Glad you are liking your new house, how did the move go with your night shifts aka lack of sleep? How come you are only staying there 8 months?

 

Congratulations Dino-Mite! Enjoy your newborn, i had newborn cuddles today and it was just lovely!!

 

NIght all!

Nic - wow that is a little scary. He really can climb very well. I am glad that I don't have climbers.

 

Leonie - for the first 4 days of our trip Angus had gastro. At first we thought he had travel sickness but when he vomited all over the hotel in Coff harbour we knew that it was something a bit worse. He was sick for the new few days including the runs. It wasn't a pleasant experience but he did perk up by day 4.

Really quickly, since I am at work....

 

Anne: I just had to jump on and say that as I was walking from the car park to my desk (thinking about how the weather is too nice to be working :blush:), I saw a ladybird and thought of you. I got very excited and had to tell the girl walking in with me all about the ladybird and your story. I hope you are having a great day.

 

Leonie:

Deanne, you dont dislike anything? You're too nice!!
:lol: As Erin says: "You get what you get and you don't get upset" :rofl: Honestly, though, I can't think of anything that I would not use or that I would feel passionately enough about to say not to buy it. I just love the thought of someone giving me something that is their choice for me. :wub: It's all so exciting! (Actually I don't think I am "too nice". I think I am actually "too impractical" :lol: )

 

Nic: I loved the spider moneky! :wub:

 

Jo: I want your piano! I love it! i would love to learn to play the piano properly. I am a self taught organist, and very bad.

 

Gotta go. Busy as a one-legged man in a bottom kicking competition, given that today is effectively my Friday and all :excite:

 

Take care everyone, and have a truly awesome day!

 

Deanne.

 

ETA: :doh:Samantha: I am glad that the move went well.

 

ETA again: :doh:Lara: I am pleased that the dog owners made the right choice. This must be a relief for you. I hope that things are going ok. :hugs:

It was crap without sleep. Ended up having to take the best paying night shift off as they were still moving at 2am, and someone needed to stay home with the baby. She had cried on and off all day and just kept eating so was very unsettled. DP in his infinite wisdom decided he could move the rest of the stuff instead of letting the movers do it, hence the moving at 2am. :rolleyes:

ETA

Owners want to move here in July so that is why it is only 8 months. At least now we will have a rental reference.

Yay!

ust in case anybody is interested. We got an email yesterday to say that the dogs that killed our dog are being destroyed at the end of the week. The owner ended up surrendering the dogs to domestic services.

 

Thats great news - I am sad for the dogs yet they need to be destroyed - if their owner was a better dog owner none of this would every have happend - You would still have your beautiful dog and their dogs wouldnt have to be destroyed . I was only thinking about you and your dog this morning. Are you going to buy another one?

 

I just took Maddy to her school orientation. It went well though there was some dissapointment when she couldnt take a school uniform home with her (there was a display so you could try some on)

Oh Lara I must have missed the post about your dog - I am so sorry to hear you lost your beloved dog so tragically. I'm glad the owners have done the right thing though.

Hi everyone

 

Thanks for all the dog wash info - our little girl is going to get such a nice bath!! :)

 

Jo: Nice piano! I should be getting my upright delivered soon as well! Mum has a parlour piano and an electronic (Roland) and said that I am welcome to the parlour.

 

Darnie - :lol:

 

Lara - it is good to see that something is being done about the dogs. I hate to see an animal being destroyed, but their owners obviously weren't going to take the steps necessary to rehabilitate them into being better dogs.

 

I'm getting so excited - in a couple of hours is the re-viewing of Twilight and then the midnight viewing of New Moon!! :dance:

 

Secret Santa

 

Like:

Girly stuff - soft coloured nail polishes, hand creams... stuff like that

Craft stuff

Books

 

Dislike:

Alcohol

Bath stuff - never get a chance to use the thing! :cry:

 

Apart from that I am fairly easily pleased!

 

BBL - just had lunch and I am still STARVING!

Okay, while we are looking at pianos, HERE and HERE are some photo's of the piano I was so sad to sell. One sleep til I get my new one!

 

Lara - The situation with the dogs is just so sad. I do think this is the the right outcome though.

 

Deanne's tip of the day...

 

After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says W T F...

I needed a laugh! Love it!

 

Mishy - I am not keen on digitals, so I would be happier with the parlour piano myself! Digitals, no matter how expensive, just don't feel right under my fingers, or sound right to my ears. For kids learning they can have a lot of benefits in the lower levels though. The ability to record and playback yourself is such a useful tool. I remember sitting with a tape recorder on the seat next to me... Fun!

 

Shelly - Is Maddy really excited about starting school next year?

 

Samantha - Hope you settle in quickly, and that the next move goes much easier :)

 

TT update - Ella is at CC today, but still no accidents, and she even complained that she had to wear a nappy to bed last night!!! huge improvement, and I am not so quietly confident! Two day sleeps without nappies and still no accident! Yes, I am very excited :blush:

 

 

 

Secret Santa -

 

Likes -

books/mags (cooking/craft/gardening)

plants

christmas trinkets

 

Dislikes

I can't eat nuts

 

 

My likes are just if anyone is stuck and wants an idea, but really I would be happy with anything, it's so rare I get gifts for myself that anything would be really appreciated!

I found a dislike! :dance:

I think I should have stayed home. I just told someone that if they wanted something done, talking to me "like that" wasn't going to achieve it. That was after I threatened to hang up on him for being both condescending and aggressive. :blush:

Oh Jo your old piano was gorgeous - I can see why you didn't want to lose it!! But yay for your new one arriving!!! I'd love to be able to play the piano but I flatly refused to as a kid - I didn't want a bar of it!

 

Darnie - how did the poor person respond!? Sorry I had to have a giggle as quite frankly there are any number of people I would like to say that to on a daily basis!
