Thursday 24th May Thread

Today I’ve ordered my replacement boxers and socks from M&S’s Aussie service.

Since @elthamsmateowen posted that link saying how you should replenish them all every year or something I like to make sure I’m good about this.

hi theo


Morning Theo and japes.
A premptive hello to everyone else.
After a week or so of insomnia I finally sleep ok last night so feel like a god this morning :smiley:
Today Ive organised for my team to redecorate a women’s domestic abuse refuge which I don’t like to talk about but is very important to me etc.
Looking forward to tonight so I can sleep like a normal person again tbh.


Morning Theo, Japes, mwt. Still in limbo and not wanting to get too involved with stuff at work as I’m about to have a month off. No movement overnight, the TV is utterly fed up now.

Morning all. Running low on fruit so got to take crisps to work to go with my sandwich.

Looks bit manky and wet out today.

That’s it.

@1101010 glad your underwear is in order, wiring came out of my bra yesterday so I’m going to need to get shopping later.

We were in the same situation and ended up with the TV having an induction. Just got to the point where she was like ‘Just get this out!’ Hope it all works out for you both.

(Morning DiS).


How far past the due date will they let it go before they induce? For us I seem to remember that it was two weeks, but that was quite some time ago.

They’ve said 12 days (BH Monday if that’s the case). But she’s got a midwife visit today, so I would reckon they’ll discuss it then.

There’s a thread in that; ‘Will It Froth?, With Your Host Kermworm!’


Morning all, got shed loads of work to do today. Heading off on holiday tomorrow, so packing for that too (a week in a motorhome with two kids and a dog; it’s going to be sleepless).

Do you wash your bras in those little bags to keep them from rattling like mad?

More IKEA stuff?

Morning all. Blah blah awake early blah blah packing. I promise from tomorrow I’ll talk about something else.

Right day for it, too.

I’m amazed at how quickly you’ve got stuff sorted. We might strip the wallpaper in the lounge at the weekend. Might.

We’ve got a few things in our corner that help - mostly the GF, it’s a relatively quiet time at her work and she’s been incredible at getting stuff done. My old man being a DIY-supremo meant we got loads of advice straight away and knew what we were up against from the start. That and us not being able to move in until 5 weeks after we got the keys meant we’ve felt a push to get as much done as we can before we move.
The photos are very selective too - both bathrooms are a bit hideous and there’s two rooms we haven’t even started.
