Got a Cure for Potato-Peelers Elbow???

I never want to see a potato again. That is all I am saying.

Lining check today - up to 8.5mm so the crappy feelings from the increase in the hormones has been worth it. Wait for word on Monday re. retrieval date and start of progesterone. Continue to give lining a talking-to and stern admonitions to get with the programme.

Foolish woman that I am, I have been out on the terrace in the sunshine without sunscreen and now I am sunburnt. There must be a hole in the ozone layer right above my house.

Peggie's party tonight and I am hitting the gin. Gonna party like it's 1999. Ooops, too late.

Tsk tsk about the sunscreen! Must be nice to see the sun though. All we have are depressing grey skys above.

Enjoy the party deserve it!! mmmm....gin...yummy. OK, I think there is something wrong with me, it's 10:30am and my mouth is watering at the thought of a martini!

Damn ozone. Sorry about the sunburn but enjoy the gin - yummy, therapeutic stuff that it is.

Ice, ice, baby (for the elbow).

Glad the lining is behaving!

Enjoy the party!

Told ya the lining would plump up nicely. See how well the not worrying works?

Ummmm gin and ibuprofen sound like a great plan to me.

Enjoy the party.

Wow, your day is coming up fast! 2 more days!?

I am so glad to hear that your lining is behaving and you know it will continue to plump up between now and then. Enjoy the gin, and have a few for me! :-)

I still think partying like it's 1999 makes for the most fun. 2006 just ain't as happening.

Lining measurement sounds great! Hooray!

Whohoo! Glad to hear about that lining. Great reason to party. Uh, not that you need one.

Oh, and normally I would scold someone for sitting outside w/o sunscreen but since your house gets, like, three days of sunshine a year, I would say you're OK.

P.S. My word verification for this comment is EOEEW. I hope this is not how you will be feeling tomorrow.

Dear Pamplemousse, good news on the lining! And I think it's wonderful that you're taking a month off -- how I wish I could join you... Enjoy your time and get in lots of what my husband calls I-love-me time!

I had a feeling that lining would get up there. Fantastic news.

Can I come and get a tan at your hole in the ozone layer? Must get a tan quickly! Weren't you mentioning Scotland for honeymoon? Hmmmm....maybe that's what we should do. You seem to be on the sunny side at least.

Great to read about the lining. Very nice!

Hope the party was all worth the potato-peelers elbow?
