Starting off a journey with Richard that will end up with us becoming a family of more than just us 2 and the bunnies.

Now just to get through all the red tape of the adoption process.

Mini T got an absolutely outstanding report from her teacher at Parents' Evening :)

He said that she is well above average across the board, but in particular her writing projects are considerably above average and the trend line indicates that her progress is going to accelerate.  He says that her work is not only technically great, but also consistently interesting to read which marks it as being something really quite special :)

I am so very very proud of her.  She works hard and has seen an awesome result. :D :D :D

On my profile page a little green box has appeared saying 'Karma: 6 Neutral'

Should I be happy that my karma is 6?! what does this mean?!

When I was around 20 I started getting painful cystic acne on my face.  I went on dianette which helped a little, giving up smoking helped even more, generally getting older helped even more.  I still had spots, but hey - I was in my 20s, that was ok.

When I was 28, and my migraines became monthly I came off the pill. My cystic acne proceeded to get worse. And worse. And worse. I tried everything, and hoped that it would settle as my hormones settled. It didn't.

In December, on the train home from Karmageddon, I WEPT and Jamie resolved we were going to sort this out.

8 months, several diets, a course of antibiotics, and ultimately 20 weeks on Isotretinoin (Roaccutane), the dermatologist has just told me that, aged 30 and a half, I no longer have acne.

I could cry. In fact I have. It's amazing. AMAZING.

You can't see what you got Karma points for though, can you? I mean, once that particular post has disappeared into the forum.

I apparently have excellent karma (I imagine Bill and Ted telling me this), but I don't know why.


#705667 Virtue is its own reward...

A few weeks ago we had a postcard delivered for a couple who I assumed were previous tenants of our house back when it was a rental property. I didn't recognise the name, but the card was from a friend of theirs who'd obviously had a hard time a while back and had been travelling the world after their partner had died. We didn't have an address for them, but the people had a surname that wasn't that common so I had a look on Google and found someone with the same name as the chap working at Warwick uni. I emailed him and it turned out to be the right person, so I wrote the new address on the card, popped it in the post box, and didn't think anything more of it.

Tonight, his wife came round and dropped off a box of chocolates to say thanks for putting them back in touch with their friend :)

Posted Joinee Serena on 23 May 2013 - 08:28 pm

First Friday as a joinee, tomorrow. LilyDusk (Lily) and I have prepared coloured good morning messages to leave on people's door and cars in the morning. It will be fun, I think. Need a good idea for next week! Have a nice evening, joinees!

Craig! He brought my make up bag to work so I didn't have to face parents evening looking like a hag.

And when I got home I discovered he had bought me a wheelie crate so I don't have to carry a huge heavy bag of books to and from school every day.

And now he is cooking tea, and not complaining that I have come in and flopped on the sofa :D

He is awesome!

I believe nobody uses the little + and - icons on the right of the posts for good or bad karma, why not? I think it's a good way to show you've read something and liked it but you don't really have much more to add..

And also.. where is this 'karma' shown in the forum? it accumulates per user or something?

thank you :)

#713312 best present

Posted PJ Hannah B-R on 10 December 2010 - 02:42 pm

On our first valentine's day living together Jamie didn't have a job and had NOOOO money. So he bought two packets of tissue paper, one green, one red, and made me a dozen roses.

It's still the absolute best present he's ever given me. I love them. They are sat fading on top of our bookshelf and are probably covered in dust :)

#736062 Have lurked but am now joining

Posted Daze on 16 February 2013 - 10:34 am

Thought it was about time I actually signed up here.

RAoK are so good for my tortured soul.

For Valentine's day I usually try to send a hand-written letter to someone who lives alone. This year I sent a long newsy letter in a large font (poor eyesight) to an 87 year old widowed relative and a postcard to an 80 year old single lady.

I also recently wrote to Sainsbury's head office to let them know about a cashier who treats my Mum (with alzheimer's disease) with beautiful understanding and respect. It filtered through to her and made her day - and mine.

iLoveFreegle.org is a regular haunt of mine and spreads kindness in spades.

Lovely to lurk here - after a few minutes reading I always feel more positive about the world.

Thank you.

Got the last place in the uk on my apprenticeship course, and The confirmation email I got back, he said they clearly save the best until last and my CV was outstanding, mentioning my volunteer work as making me stand out. Its finally paid its dividends!!! :):)

Harry potter day at Alnwick castle. Freaking awesome.

And then a trip to barter books to drink hot choc and eat cake and sit in the lovely waiting room.

And the BEST BIT is that when we told the boys we'd have a car and they could go somewhere, a castle and a book shop were what they chose.

Oh, and my 9 year old twin boys love animating using a simple programme on our old laptop and Lego. They'd shown a couple to their class, and then last week they were asked to show them in assembly and now they've been put on the school website. So so proud.

In a normal week I would have smoked approximately 140 cigarettes (20 per day give or take), since this time last saturday I have smoked 6 (1 per day) :lol:
