Hay Baby-diva that's fab news!!! I've changed you to July '11 on the front

I'm off work today and tomorrow myself & DH are off to Dublin for a few days to stay with our friends. So looking forward to that as there's a really bad situation at work at the moment that I'm really stressed about, so nice to get away from there for a few days!

EllaUmbrella, good for you going the course - sounds interesting! I wish I had time to do somehting like that... what with working full time, doing a masters degree (MSc in Housing) and doing the house up I've no time to breathe let alone anything else!!!

everyone!

Thought I would pop on and say hi! My bank rec doesn't balance so I'm taking 5 mins out before I try and find the difference! Boring accouts work stuff!!

Mmmm... Minstrels! I just looked for a chocolate smiley but can't see one! I mean, they have ones for wine, lolly and ice cream but none for chocolate (unless I missed it)? On a forum with lots of women?! Madness!

The sign language course sounds really interesting. I would love to do something like that. Might look into it a bit more once my accounting studies are out of the way!

Afternoon ladies..weather in Nova Scotia has been beautiful the last week. Taking my Mom for another tattoo this weekend and prob spending a lot of time in the pool with Rian. I had a doc appt yesterday as my Diabetes has been out of whack!! My doc has made some major changes in my insulin..hoping it will put my bsl back to normal. We plan on ttc on Sept but I need to make sure everything is in check with my health first.
Learning Sign Language is awesome!! I took a course years ago and worked in daycare teaching sign language to a LO with a cochlear implant. I have taught Ri quite a few signs. It is too cute to see a 15 month old sign!!

Minstrels are sweets that are large chocolate drops that are covered with a sugary shell. The original adverts for them refered to them as the chocolate that melt in your mouth but not in your hand.

OHHHH. . Do you mean M&M's...? That was the original slogan for M&M's, but I feel like they're still called M&M's outside of the U.S. as well....if not, then one candy copied the other's slogan .

--Actually I have 'heard' that that slogan, for M&M's, was because the "U.S." soldiers wanted a candy that wouldn't melt in their uniforms/pockets....so out of the goodness of their hearts (/sarcasm), M&M's came up w/that candy & slogan. But that *could* definitely be U.S. revisionist history, glorifying wars and soldiers *SIGH....*

Sign language class was great! Did you know, this: "loosely" is the sign for the number 10. Learn somethin' every day!

In other news, there is a cartoon movie coming out here called "Despicable Me" that OH and I might go see....it comes out this wkend so there will undoubtedly be cute LO's there...which will make me more broody....*sigh* why do I do this to myself (the movie looks funny, tho).

Yes, it was M&M's but they used nearly the same wording for Galaxy Minstrels.

Now of course, they're both made by Mars, so they're pract6ically the same anyway. Minstels are bigger though, so more chocolate.

Well ladies, I'm in shock. I appear to have got my BFP (pic in my journal - link below). I really wasn't expecting it and I'm very nervous and really hope it's a sticky bean. According to my dates I'm 5 weeks
