    Hiya ladies, new week, new thread time. Cannot believe we are almost at the end of November!!!! Where has the time gone to?

    Hope you are all keeping well. I think I have recovered from some very very busy nights, needless to say, if we were on the mainland we probably would have shut and sent people elsewhere, however we have no choice but to stay open. Finished Saturday morning and had a few hours sleep, then on Saturday night I slept for almost 10 hours. I was considering going to the gym Sunday morning, but I was not going to get up specially, well I didn't make it. A few days off now, just trying to find motivation for uni work.

    Hi GF,

    It is crazy how quick time is flying by this year doesn't seem like yesterday it was January!!

    Sounds like you needed the sleep, I did the same but got up on Saturday morning when I didn't need to at 7am went back to bed and before I knew it, it was 11am.

    My little brother turns 18 at the end of the week, makes me feel old hahaha.

    Certainly did need it, and by the sounds of it so did you. Just couldn't believe how busy it had been, every night was the same, then they would discharge women during the day, but it would be full up again by the night shift, then in the morning it would be negative beds. How there can be anymore pregnant women on the Island is beyond me.

    Sounds like there is a baby boom going on :) At least you have a few days off so you can rest up

    Yep, just hope that boom is done by Wednesday night. Ahh well, it certainly kept us busy and no time to think about being tired until it was time to go home. Then the drive home was horrid.

    I have so much respect for midwives and the drs etc that bring babies into the world. The amount of hours you all put in to make sure both mother and baby are well and 9 times out of 10 just get moaned at by us. I must of driven mine insane, freaking over every tiny little thing.

    My nephew is due in 3 weeks I'm so excited! He will bring the grand total of nieces and nephews to 14 (just mine). Then next year my Niece is due in march and then another niece or nephew is due the day before the wedding!
    Once married we will have 17 nieces and nephew between us all under the age of 8. My sibling really need hobbies lmao.

    This year needs to slow down! I'm not ready for Korey-James to be 2 yet.

    Morning all.

    Thanks Tiffany, we put up with a lot at the time, and when we put so much time and support in some and then find out afterwards they are complaining about their care, it's pretty heartbreaking. Recently, our book face page put up a post asking how we as a service could help everyone. OMG, that opened up a can of worms and so many people were so negative, even if it was from 10+ years previous.

    Today I am meant to be doing uni work. I have done a sentence!!!

    I got a really good deal on Hubbys new phone yesterday. :) We have saved over £300 over the 2 year contract by taking him out of a contract, buying the phone outright and getting a sim only [email protected] So chuffed.

    I know we have had to pay outright for the phone. But at the min his contract is £45 because hes stupid and didn't look around. Will be £10 a month going forward :D

    Well I done a little bit more, that is it though. I just cannot be bothered today which makes it worse for trying to do it. Maybe I will be more motivated tomorrow, start nights again then.

    You're welcome GF.

    We now have a wedding cake! Decided to pay it in full so we wasn't messing with money the day before the wedding.
    Found a beautiful dress for my BM down to £8!! Only problem is it's today only and not sure what other dresses can go with it. I can't get it for all the girls either because its a maternity dress lol.

    Was meant to be MOH dress shopping tomorrow but she's on bed rest bless her. She had an appointment yesterday to make sure baby had come away on it's own and that no intervention was needed, to everyone's surprise her blood test come back positive! A scan later and she's told there is another pregnancy progressing :O. We are all still very shocked.

    Well MOH found a maternity dress she loves online and it goes with the colour scheme. Her dress is now ordered and on it's way to mine. The dress can be worn both pregnant or not.

    Love the MOH dress Tiff its gorgeous and the colour is lovely too.

    SOOOO close to finishing my invites now, created the menus for the tables and put a border of flowers on our memorial board for the church.

    We haven't had any official confirmation from the church yet even though the prices have been released. don't know if I should phone up the Vicar and ask when to expect it?

    Morning all. Hope you are all well.

    Just put my old phone on the bay, starting bid of £80 but someone has literally just messaged me asking if I will take 125 with delivery. Not sure really, might do, just that last time I sold something like that I saw it for a lot more than what I sold it for just a short while later!

    Again today I am trying to find jobs to do. I've cleaned the house as I start nights tonight, ironed my uniform, put a laundry load on, I WILL do some uni work!! haha.

    Well today wasn't as productive as I would of liked. Managed to find a ring I love, just need to order it into our local store but I'm nice and warm at home now so will do it tomorrow. H2b just wasn't co-operating at all, he just wanted to go food shopping. He hates food shopping! I'm not sure if I should be worried that he doesn't seem to want to pick his ring or not :/ He was very interested in helping pick mine though so that's a good sign.

    Thanks Stacey, apparently it's already been dispatched so it should be here soon :D. I wouldn't worry about pricing for the church just yet. Our's told us the new prices will be with us by January, as each parish changes there individual pricing (ie bell ringers, flowers etc) in October/November.

    Congratulations to your OH Emily on his new job!
    Karl's was meant to be a secret until the other temps had left (long story) but someone with a big mouth overheard them taking to Karl and now everyone knows.

    MOH's dress arrived today and it's stunning. I love it! Had a right laugh as she asked me try it on so she could see how it would look if had already had baby. Well the dress is a size 16 maternity and I'm a size 10-12 so it was a challenge but managed to get some pictures to her.

    Can't believe it's been 3 years today when I got with my H2B. Celebrating by staying up on my own waiting for water board to come and unblock a sewer drain/pipe because it's now become a environmental danger (I wont say anymore), while he's at work all night.

    Kids have wore us down. We have finally given in and said they can put the tree up tomorrow. I have the wonderful job of dragging it out the cupboard, putting it up and getting covered in glitter while I spread all 10ft of it out lol.
