Re: Brain overload

Oh ABL, that's a lot to process.

My DD was diagnosed with ASD three weeks ago and I still haven't been able to tell her or anyone else.

Re: Inappropriate 12y.o talk

Oh dear. I have nothing helpful to say, just that parenting this age group is really tough. It seems a very unusual thing for a 12 yo to say - is there something she may have been exposed to (at school, scouts, friend's house) that isn't what fits in with your family values (and appropriateness for ...

Re: The 2017 declutter thread

So I may not be top of the class on the decluttering front, but I do know that Mrs Moops could use her Allen Key skills to earn the Design Your Own badge, or the Hands badge, or the Home badge or the Life Skills badge!

Re: DS diagnosed with congenital heart disease

News like this is really difficult - I know there are some really good support groups of parents who will understand what you are feeling and what you are worried about, so it's good you've found some. JennyD is right - don't be googling....nothing good ever came of it. ...

It sits beautifully in its special cupboard inside my sewing table....BUT :oops: I have never had it out of its wrappers - yes - it has never been used - I am too scared to use it....I've never used an overlocker...

Re: Ironing tea towels

I must confess that I iron the linen and most of the cotton tea towels.......also do the pillow cases and the tops of the flat sheets (the part that folds over).....i do know I'm crazy, but I like to see them looking all beautifully pressed.....

Re: Running a bit late this year!

Well, each year I set myself a goal of having the bulk of the Christmas Shopping done by 1st December - well there are 7 days to go .....
