First here! Does that mean i get sleepy dust from the top of the pile and it might work?!

StuntNun Fri 12-Apr-13 16:04:10

Hold it Izzy this fred isn't official yet. No stealing all the sleepy dust before everyone else arrives.

<starts system checks>

<looks pointedly at PR>

<locks rear of plane/dust hopper to prevent scavengers>

<starts plotting flight plan that focuses on MM & Kirrin's houses>

I need sleepy dust stunt hence trying to steal it! J jas had a total of 8hours sleep since midnight this morning! He just doesn't seem to think sleeping is any good!

MadamGazelleIsMyMum Fri 12-Apr-13 18:57:58

<makes request to Pilot chunky for flight plan to include the SW>

Pikz Fri 12-Apr-13 19:02:12

PetiteRaleuse Fri 12-Apr-13 20:10:46

Well I had to nick some. The plane hasn't been crossing the Channel

BigPigLittlePig Fri 12-Apr-13 20:17:29

<PMs chunky with address of chateau pig>

<loop the loops over chateau pig please Pilot>

ValiumQueen Fri 12-Apr-13 21:00:34

Get your cape on vq

Can mummy have some sleepy dust tonight. I can't get the lid off my lavender roller ball.

ChunkyChicken Fri 12-Apr-13 22:38:51

It's just marketing innit VQ? New technology, whizzy publicity campaign = brain-washing of sleep deprived Mummies wink

<jumps into cockpit>

<tries to find ignition>

<realises trying to start it with car key>

<jumps out, turns propeller, engine starts>

<jumps back in, checks flight plan and location of mm Kirrin BPLP madam's houses>

<realises geography isn't a strong point, so scraps flight plan in favour of just flying in great big circles over a giant quiche Lorraine>

<circles round the runway>

<takes off>

Night all.grin

kirrinIsland Sat 13-Apr-13 00:02:45

I was just about to request a Fly over for the south east but I see I'm already in the flight plan grin and thanks chunky

VQ I'll give you all the credit in the world if you and your cape can make it right down south. If you can't see the Channel you've not gone far enough!

<lifts collar like Kenickie from Grease> just finished my first Fred.

ValiumQueen Sat 13-Apr-13 05:40:00

Note to self. Do not do a fucking long meaningful inspiring helpful post at the end of a fucking thread!

My cape expeditions cover Europe but no further.

Summary of post was

SIDS is a real fear but if fear is unmanageable see GP. Fear growing with subsequent kids is understandable as it is easy to think your luck will run out. Do your best to be as safe as you can and try to channel any thoughts into enjoying every precious moment.

I reminded of the loss of a precious child of the group 10 years ago to SIDS ((hug to mummy))

I have an Angelcare which is fab and helps me sleep better, but think if you bought one now, it would not be used for long as rolling can give false alarms. I had a Tommee Tippee which was shite. They may be better now.

I also said that mine activated when DD2 was tiny and she was not breathing. She may well have started breathing again anyway, but I was most thankful I had the monitor. I have heard though that even if instant care is given, if it is SIDS then revival is impossible thus many saying the movement monitors give false reassurance.

Do not let this fear spoil precious moments with your babies x

Morning all. Sleepy dust managed to hit us to some extent (stretches of 5 and 3 hours) but I suspect lots of poo-related wriggling. Everyone keep their heads down...

Need to wander back to the old Fred to see the news.

ValiumQueen Sat 13-Apr-13 05:41:47

And I thanked everyone for kind words.

kirrinIsland Sat 13-Apr-13 05:59:44

Thanks for the sleepy dust flyovers - N has done 3 hours then 2.5 hours. This is pretty good. Now, same again please N.

TheDetective Sat 13-Apr-13 06:10:20

So last night he slept through. Tonight it was back to fucking 2 and 6. angry. Plus an extra wake up before we went to bed.

<cries at false hope>

Kyzordz Sat 13-Apr-13 06:12:04

Morning all, sounds like some awful nights were had last night! brew to those in need. Hello shiny new Fred, and hello son of mine wot is grumbling in his cot. Guess it is morning after all!

StuntNun Sat 13-Apr-13 06:28:40

<Shambles on to thread>

J decided that 5:45 was a good time to start the day. Not on a Saturday please J. I was hoping for a bit of a lie in (7:30?) because I was up late watching a rubbish film with DH. It's called Warrior King and it's about a Thai elephant keeper who has to travel to Sydney to rescue his kidnapped elephants from a transsexual mob leader who runs a restaurant which serves exotic animal dishes. Absolutely bizarre film. I wish I had gone to bed early watched something decent.

DS2 was up twice last night. He had been sleeping through reliably before J arrived but now he's up all the time - drink of water, nightmares, lost teddy, just one more poem please daddy. I wish I knew what was wrong with him. I think it's more than just jealousy of the baby.

Lily311 Sat 13-Apr-13 06:49:00

Morning,

She was up twice. I was up half of the night. A nap is in order at lunch time.

Dixiebell Sat 13-Apr-13 06:51:29

Ooh I do love the first brew of the day. Would love it more an hour or so later but hey.
