My son loves when I blow on his face! He tries to catch the air lol

HOW DO I NOT KNOW THIS MAN? He is adorable. *Watches BBC all day, everyday from now on*
Since I’ve lived here a few years, I found this list annoyoing—but then I totally thought about when I first moved here and was like, ‘Oh God, I totally wondered why the UK plugs were huge too.’ FWIW, the plugs in the UK have fuses in them so you don’t destroy your electronic object (or yourself). My husband has blown a few of the plugs for his fishtank; all you have to do is unscrew it, replace the fuse, and you’re good to go. No need to buy a new tank fan or anything :-)
Or kitchen roll!
What do they really think that will accomplish? Firstly, those claiming RBS was bailed out by the taxpayers…do you think none of those taxpayers are English? Secondly, RBS has positioned itself as an international (investment) bank. Retail is just a small part of what it does. RBS probably doesn’t care that much if some people drop the retail portion, so long as they’re still getting corporate business. Further, if Scotland secedes and refuses to use the pound, it’ll go through economic collapse (at least for a few years whilst it get its shit together)—RBS wants nothing to do with that. Scotland’s economic rating will be piss-poor, and RBS’s would be as well if they stayed. Which would ultimately mean Scots would have to bail them out more, but hey, whatevs.
#5 is only true if you have roughly a 28 day cycle. It’s rarer to have a luteal phase abnormality, so no matter when you ovulate you will most likely menstuate 13-15 days later. However, if your cycle is longer, you’re not ovulating approximately 14 days in (e.g. In a 40 day cycle, ovulation will most likely occur around day 26 of your cycle)—and it’s pretty common to not have a 28-day cycle. This little ‘ovulation happens on day 14 of your cycle’ is why some couples have trouble conceiving. If you also really want to track things (for conception, for example), check your basal body temperature. It peaks at ovulation, so after tracking it for a few months, you should see a pattern emerge (unless you’re like me and don’t ovulate). Oh, the things infertility teaches you…
I had a precipitous labour of 3 hours—back to back contractions, no reprieve, in absolute terror because I didn’t have time to process what was happening, and ultimately spiked a fever and went into shock after the birth. You know what made it worth it? The fact that I now have an awesome one-year-old son who’s walking around and being amazing. Not some photos that will eventually wind up in an album, never seen, until my son—if he chooses to—has a child.
To be fair, real small towners should be well aware of propane (gas) cannons used to scare off birds and rodents. All the farms near where I grew up had them, including the one next to my parents house. Giant pain in the ass.
Google was going to, twitch went with Amazon though
I came here to throw a hissy fit that We Have Always Lived in the Castle was not on the list, but it is!!! Great book :-)
Thank you. This week has been a bit better with it out of the papers, and I started counselling and told my family what’s going on. Support is key. :-)
Ahh gotcha. Thanks.
Seriously. Europe has giant house spiders which are harmless, but when you unfold a towel to dry your darling baby from his bath and a 2 inch spider comes rushing out, you scream, run away, abandon your baby, and cry. Fuckers are huge.
As someone with severe postnatal depression, it is very, very triggering.
Wheeeeere did you get that second Orion picture? It’s not on the shortlist and the quality is below Astrophotographer of the Year standards.
I got to page 14 (100% correct!), but the explanation for whom/who is so long that the ‘next’ button disappears. I can’t finish! (NB: I’m using Chrome.)
Missed Cockfosters! And ‘Jackass Lane’ in Surrey :-D
Kinky Boots are a man’s sexy legs. ;-)
Definitely have had #8 happen more than once, and always with a Range/Land Rover.
You should consider reading some Terry Pratchett—not particularly feminist, but has very amusing descriptions of women. Things such as noting words like ‘curves’, ‘bountiful’ and ‘pert’ are used to describe women, but alas his character is in simple chain mail and boots. :-P
As mentioned previously, a lot of this you can find at Tesco, but you can find other things at Ocado.com (they’re partnered with Waitrose). I cannot tell you how many boxes of Bisquick I order from there, as well as Progresso bread crumbs.
THANK YOU. It’s now probably my favourite Disney movie (and this my favourite Disney song), but it was seriously pretty creepy.
I’m awful—husband and I just moved to a new town and there’s NO WAITROSE. I tried the Morrison’s and almost died. I hate this town. (I also now drive 15 minutes to get to a Waitrose whenever I need to do a major shop. As an American from a rural area, this isn’t a big deal to me, but apparently going to another town for groceries is blasphemy.)
John Oliver is English. The ‘royal baby’ is English. And yet I cannot watch the clip from England. Go figure. :-P
Del Monte’s Frutini. One quid for six, and they’re orange, strawberry, pineapple. Can’t lose.
I was hoping they’d include Alexander Pope! Not only is the quote ‘A little learning is a dangerous thing’, what follows is ‘Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian Spring’. So, no, it’s not supporting the idea that ignorance is bliss, but rather that one needs an extensive amount of knowledge (‘drink deep’).
The poster of this article is either: a) Wealthy to the point that spending over $200 on a sweater that you wear for four months is meaningless.
b) Not pregnant, but just going ‘Omg look at all the beautiful pregnant ladies and clothes!’ There are so many flaws here I can’t even. First, you realise summer is coming right? Even in the UK, a leather jacket is a bit much. Adding sunglasses to the list is insulting—do you think my head is really swelling *that* much? That Free People tunic? Yeah. Not pregnancy approved. I’m sure you’re all like, ‘But omg it’s big and billowy!’ Great. Doesn’t stretch. Ever try to put a shirt on that was once big and billowy on you but isn’t any more? You CANNOT get it on. Stretch is your friend. From someone who is 6 months pregnant and due the end of August, let me tell you real necessities (for a summer pregnancy): A goddamn bra.
Maxi dresses (they work early on and throughout the pregnancy if they’re jersey!)
Jeans (or a band so your old pants fit)
Shirts Done. All that extraneous spending? Have you seen the statistics on how much the first year alone costs? Anywhere from 5k-10k GBP (so that’s even more in USD!). Makes you really think about your choices in buying that ‘cute’ (blech) cape for $300.
And this is why I use Rdio.
