Sparkling- shouldn't that read get a LIFE wink

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Jul-13 07:33:22

Oh possibly phantom. I am a wee bit lost TBH.

rosepettel Thu 25-Jul-13 07:33:47

and how to care about
sad

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Jul-13 07:33:48

I am quite inferiated myself.

rosepettel Thu 25-Jul-13 07:34:46

about what

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Jul-13 07:36:15

Everything. It's the frist day of the school holidays for a start and it's raining.

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Jul-13 07:36:28

first even.

Oh dear .. I must be one weird mother then, I actually brought my DS bugs* one Christmas (complete with terrarium and kit to look after them of course!). It confirmed my suspicion he was not ready to look after a hamster grin.

* Giant hissing roaches if anyone cares - they're actually pretty fascinating and great first pets if you need low maintenance animals

biscuit Hmmm !

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Jul-13 07:41:30

Well it's been a blast but I think I will back slowly out of the thread now.....

MalcolmTuckersMum Thu 25-Jul-13 07:41:44

Sparkling Just one painful example grin

I always think it's a mark of extreme stupidity to beat a joke to death.

rosepettel Thu 25-Jul-13 07:42:28

can i ask you some thing

I have no milk for my coffee til the shopping is delivered, I reckon that's more interesting than this bug in a pot thread hmm.

Feed him a hamwidge and be done with it!

hellhasnofurylikeahungrywoman Thu 25-Jul-13 07:43:21

Just. Set. It. Free.

rosepettel Thu 25-Jul-13 07:43:53

rosepettel Thu 25-Jul-13 07:44:51

rosepettel Thu 25-Jul-13 07:45:45
