Friday Night Thread (for the holidays??)
19 July 2019 at 4:26 pm #28091
Im back from my mum and stepfathers retirement pad in Portugal and wowee its grim in great britain.
So here we are the school holidays…..
Anyone else planning wine tonight?????19 July 2019 at 6:45 pm #28100
I’m already half way down the first glass😊
SATs are done, the school play is done, prize giving is done. Just the leavers party and a church service to go. Then I can lie down in a darkened room. 😓
Happy Friday .19 July 2019 at 6:57 pm #28102
Good on yah ✌
Ive nearly polished a bottle. And popped upstairs for a rollie.
After 8 years of not smoking crazily bought a pack of ciggies so i didnt feel like a ponce.
Im not smoking much.
This is my first chuff on a rollie since back from Portugal.19 July 2019 at 10:37 pm #28108
My daughter still has two days of school, then the holidays begin. As much as she’s my world, I’m kind of dreading it cos she demands my attention the whole time! She is virtually incapable of entertaining herself and I have almost no help from anyone for respite. ☹ Her dad is working all the 6 weeks. 🙄19 July 2019 at 10:53 pm #28109
I have 3 kids, so the 6 weeks holidays are always packed with them and each other.
As a kid we used to have EOW with our mum and the 6 weeks involved nans, games galore and various summer camps that mum had found via the county council website.
Gingerbread used to hire a coach for Thorpe Park which broke it up.
I love seeing everyone pull together over the 6 weeks. Crafts, coluring, baking until theres no more. As long as the pantries full 👨🍳👩🍳💆♀️💆♂️👥
Dont be alone19 July 2019 at 10:57 pm #28110
Im in bed now watching the Amy Winehouse story, channel 5.
When she was alive me and my kids dad saw her live at Glastonbury festival in 2008.
Such a sad waste of talent 😥
A few of my secondary school pals used to go to the sylvia young drama groups. Not the main school but the weekend ones.
Theres still stuff like that about 🎭22 July 2019 at 9:15 am #28152
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I done the last carboot sale of summer and went to my sisters for a family BBQ.
Have a nice week everyone.

Have just joined Gingerbread, have to say Liane, I’m already loving your positive attitude and honesty 🤩
(Love AW too, actually cried when I heard the sad news)
Hi Everyone 👋🏻23 July 2019 at 6:15 pm #28231
Thanks, thanks BC.
I was beginning to feel a bit like ‘my post, my dwelling’, scenario so the response is appreciated 😁
Im Essex based but check out the gingerbread groups in your area.
Hows Guildford for the weather this week???

I’m quite looking forward to this storm they keep promising.
All week I’ve been back working nights but I’m off tomorrow. Ive been planning a day at the local park but really wondering now how hard its gonna rain.
Im over in Kent on saturday so need to check my cars oil, coolant etc.
Hows everyone else coping with this weather???25 July 2019 at 11:04 pm #28308
I actually love the weather! YAY!
I know a lot of people don’t, but obviously we’re just not used to it are we!
My dogs HATE it, they don’t even want to chase a ball at the moment, I have now bought a little paddling pool for them to cool down in!
Enjoy the storm…. If it comes!26 July 2019 at 9:12 pm #28350
Just came to say good evening all.
A busy weekend this weekend funny enough finishing with a Dog show on Sunday.
What type of dogs do you have?27 July 2019 at 9:01 am #28357
Hope all is good in your world 😊
Where abouts is the dog show Liane? Should be a good day out!
We have a handsome 9 year old Springer! And a beautiful 2 year old Dachshund! They’re both so different, but equally wonderful, they’re mine and my Son’s world… My Mum always said “you’ll never be lonely with a dog around” She isn’t wrong!
