I should think whatever applies. :)  (I'm in).

The tender my family put in for 300 acres of farmland has been accepted by its former owners who are retiring. This extra land means it will directly link our farm to the A259 enabling superb infrastructure by road. This is fantastic news!

What a fantastic idea!

If you go to the main page, about halfway down under "Mothering Stats" you can see who the most active poster was for that day. It would be cool to see one of you there. It tickles me if I make one of those lists. Like I've won a prize or something. smile.gif

I'm in -- though if I run out of ideas, I may break down tomorrow's "accomplishments" into separate posts!

Tonight as I was helping clearing up after the family's party, I found 3/4 bottle of leftover vintage Krug. Guess what I'm up to right now?

Well, this makes seven for me today.  Didn't quite hit the goal, but had a lot of fun hitting forums and threads I wouldn't have taken time to do otherwise -- thanks for the idea!

Our evening was interrupted by a hungry goatling wanting a feed. Kitty bottlefed it by the radiator, much to Juniper's glee.

sorry, didn't make it .... my time was gobbled up with even more family drama (have you ever heard of someone trying to ban others from a funeral service taking place in a CHURCH ????? i thought they were public place anyone could enter anytime anyway .... + is that being Christian these days ?????????) and then i crashed and napped (badly needed) !!!!!

=> i'll have fun exploring the different threads started (over the next few days, school holidays for us here, so = less time for me "alone" at the computer ....)

Sorry you had to go to a funeral! I can relate to the funeral drama though. The last funeral I attended, the family got into a fight over the order of the cars following the hearse....one relative was so upset that she literally fell to the ground, crying and yelling. My son saw this and was so confused, because he had never seen an adult throw a fit!

 

 At my grandmother's funeral, certain people were not allowed to attend until certain family members had left, so they wouldn't see each other.

Funerals are so sad, and often bring out the worst in folks. I understand why though.

actually ....i didn't get to go ... (i suppose i'm on the "secret list" of people banned from attending ... officially,, i've not even been notified of the death, but that could possibly be to try and spare my DH whose mental health is still fragile ... & we live in another country and DH doesn't have the permission to travel abroad unless he ask permission in writing to the local health authority etc ... ) but i feel for the other DIL in the family who thought she was going to attend and has now been told she's on the secret list .... there's been some toxic going ons beforehand within that family (due to prior trauma but which the spouses have been taking on full force on the face basically, which is why i'm so angry and upset ... why cannot these people seek professional help instead of making their best to ruin the life of their partners and their sibling and children's partners ?????)

have been toying with the idea of HIRING 40 strangers to go and attend the funeral 

i realise these people are grieving so it's not bringing the best in them, far from it ....

it's hard not to be emotionally drawn in all the tangles ...

anyway, thank you Becky bird for sharing your story ... it DOES make me feel a bit better, i must say (= am not the only one to go through this ...)
