#1

Thought we might have a thread for personal or family milestones.

I’ve had two this weekend myself. Youngest daughter is now sixteen, and the eldest daughter embarks on her second year of Uni*

(and as a sort of half milestone, I’m at the halfway point on moving my daughter in and out of Central London. Only three more to do!)


#2

Eldest son graduated this year, spent 6 weeks backpacking in China and has just started work at an actuarial firm as an investment analyst. (still living at home! )


#3

I’ve just had the biggest shit of my life. Was very satisfying but I feel exhausted now. I might have to take the day off work.


#4

Juvenile Unit #2 got her A/S Level Spanish. She got a B, but was two points off the A. Should she elect to take it at A Level, she just needs to get an A grade and 2 points over to get an A at A level.

She was also focused on 11 GCSEs at the time. Those results will come next week. She is sixteen :lou_wink_2:


#5

I’ve almost finished building my shed.


#6

If it’s a man shed it should never be finished, otherwise you will have no reason to go there.


#7

Our aged Panasonic Microwave went PHUTT this morning…sad day. :lou_sad:


#8

My dog did a phenomenally huge shit a few weeks ago. He’d been quivering a lot and I didn’t know why, but when I let him outside and he produced a poo larger than his own head I could understand it. I was strangely impressed by this marvel of canine metabolism.


#9

Yet you didn’t take a photo of it? I bet the dog wished it had a selfie stick so that he/she could have recorded this momentous occasion!! Were you in a Poop Scoop area? You’d have needed an IKEA sized bag, not a little flimsy normal sized one for that Turdathon!!


#10

I managed to last the whole night without having to get up for a pee


#11

I hope you gave him the day off


#12

This is true and why it is “almost” finished and has been for the last 18 months.


#13

Farking hell impossible! what meds can do that?


#14

Mrs D_P has just finished painting the staircase & entrance hall.

Me? I’m on the sofa watching golf while she washes up the brunch stuff.

Guess it’s that Polish thing


#15

My brother-in-law is building a shed and has been for over a year. He is now running out of garden and getting bigger than the house! Crazy!


#16

Why have you not got your landlord’s workers to do the painting ?


#17

Youngest daughter got GCSEs today, attaining the top score for two generations.

She snaffled four A stars and six A’s.

Parenting to sixteen is complete.


#18

Ah good memories. Reading was my first festival too. Halcyon days of '06, fuck just dawned on me that was 10 years ago.

I shalln’t tell you what I got up to, other than to say it was great fun, and I’m sure Kid C_S will also have a great time!


#20

And that isn’t going to worry the C_S’s any??
