LG, I'm so sorry to hear about Ava, poor little soul. I hope she picks up quickly.

And there is also nothing worse than a stressed out Grandma. Rest yourself woman. Have some nanna naps or bubby zuzzes. You aren't doing either yourself or your family any good if you stretch yourself to the limit. You can still worry, but do it while you are resting.

Joseph on strike. Oh heavens first the posties, then British Airways and now Joseph. Just remind him this opportunity only comes once a year. If he muffs this one he has a whole twelve months to wait until he is in the limelight again. He will really kick himself, and so will you!!!

Joseph is on strike eh, Can Mary talk to him she'll strengthen him out fast.

LaGooner, sorry to hear about you granddaughter, hope she gets better soon.


"Environment Canada has continued their snowfall warning for parts of our region to expect up to 20cm more by Wednesday night. A series of pacific frontal systems will spread heavy snow to the southern sections of the British Columbia interior."


YG Report 15 Dec 2009 22:04

Is that anywhere near Britannia Beach RMS? My friend could be snowed in!!


RockyMountainShy Report 15 Dec 2009 22:17

182 miles away, just looked it up, it's on the coast 27 miles north of Vancouver they usually just get rain over there.

Nice looking little subdivesion though

35 miles from the Olympics


YG Report 15 Dec 2009 22:24

What!! Canada, and no snow!!!!


RockyMountainShy Report 15 Dec 2009 22:27

they wouldn't have to drive far to find some.


YG Report 15 Dec 2009 22:34

Sounds like you are going to get plenty!!

We need plenty of snowballs in the CPs compound to keep them amused over the Christmas holidays!! That should keep you busy for a while. We'll send over LG's catapult for you to fire them across.

While you are making them, I'm off to bed to wrap up all snuggly and warm lol!!


RockyMountainShy Report 15 Dec 2009 22:40

snowball fights perfect!

Who needs to be warm HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA *cough, cough*

Good night YG

All went very well Joseph performed with a curtain over his shoulder as long as he did not wear a hat .Younger ones were cute The older ones were giggly ,but performed well with style .
count down now three days left .not too cold here yet although we are promised snow today .Hope Ava is better soon


AuntySherlock Report 16 Dec 2009 09:01

Morning my little frozen petunias. Congratulate me. I have just finished writing my cards. That's two things crossed off the list.

Any news on the little one. I do hope LG managed to have some rest. Must be difficult coping with the littlest one, and still have a million things to do.

Pleased to see Joseph played his part. Kid's performances always bring a tear to my eye. They always seem to do things so right and make parents so proud.


LaGooner Report 16 Dec 2009 09:33

Thank goodness today so far so good. She had a relapse last night after being discharged home early evening rushed in again at 3.30 this morning. Just awaiting doctors report after his rounds . We are all having a really good time of it OH really poorly similar to Ava but not so bad yet. all the rest of us Emily included have stinking colds and to add insult to injury ***** Washing machine died last night.


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 16 Dec 2009 12:27

Oh LG...what can one say? Roll on 2010? Perhaps it would be best if Ava stays in overnight, just so they can monitor her.

Can I suggest your daughter gets her Health Vistor involved for Babes sake? I think she is too old to still be under the midwife, but could be wrong. They might be able to loan equipment for 'expressing' or cot monitors if it's thought appropriate.

I had come on to's snowing....but that seems rather trite in the circumstances.


Mazfromnorf Report 16 Dec 2009 16:29

LG hope things are going better we are all rooting for you
YG YG there is a new firestation being built just along the road from me even nearer than the old one lol

Oh my God, you're having a really bad time of it LG. How is little Ave today, has she improved?

The washer breaking down is bad at any time of year but this near to Christmas is a nightmare. If you can't get it fixed - you'll be pushing it to get a new one before the holidays.

I think you need a little bit of fairy dust sprinkling on you. Haven't we got a residential fairy at the lodge?


AuntySherlock Report 16 Dec 2009 19:31

Excuse me the residential fairy dressed in a fairy dress hob nail boots deer stalker hat tenna undergarments accompanied by a slightly soggy shaven pawed striped sabre tooth tiger called Spot...

does not waste fairy dust on washing machines..

Said fairy has already distributed copious quantities of fairy dust on the little tackers. It is very good quality fairy dust and should do the trick.

Re the washing machine. Do you not have a family member who could take washing to laundromat. (Poms do have laundromats, don't they). And organise someone to come take a look at your machine. Delegate, delegate!! Demand action. Come on you've enough to do without worrying about washing. Don't wait for someone to offer to help. Ask for help.

And Maz how long do you think it will be before you have a visit from YG. Your estimate starting from the day the new fire station opens!!!!!


LaGooner Report 16 Dec 2009 19:34

Just a very quick update as Emily is due for a feed and I cannot keep piggy waiting LOL Ava is slightly improved but will be staying in until she is a lot more stable. Thanks for the good wishes. As for washer it is out on the lawn in the morning LOL I shall throw it there !!!! We are going to buy one at the weekend as our local superstores keep some in for immediate collection. Will take some laundry over to Hailey's tomorrow and wash it in hers. An way I am away now but will keep you posted. It's not easy typing one handed with a grumpy baby on other arm.


+++DetEcTive+++ Report 16 Dec 2009 19:35

When my OH was told of the latest news, he was already to drive round and collect the washing.....until he worked out the distance. At least his heart was in the right place - lol


AuntySherlock Report 16 Dec 2009 20:12

And I thought of putting my OH into the catapult and flinging him over there. Trouble is he wouldn't sit still while I tied him in. He may be elderly but he sure moves quickly when he has to.

Well he is good at washing and also fixing things.


YG Report 16 Dec 2009 20:19

You are certainly having it rough at the moment LG. Ava is in the best place and she will be ok.

Maz, I'm on my way. Never mind that it's not built yet!! Can you pm your address to me so I know where I'm going!!!!
