Re: Still getting the guilt trips

It was my in-laws golden wedding anniversary a couple of weeks back. We couldn't be there (too costly, in term time, not enough annual leave!), but Mr GG Facetimed the family during their dinner out....

Re: How do you have your Marmite - or not ;)

We took some over the niece/nephews when we were over there last year. Turns out their local ASDA stocks it. Who knew?

Re: Digger47

I only know about speech pathology in Aus, not Hungary. But if Digger's daughter is looking into these sorts of options, the term she's after is AAC (augmented and alternative communication). There's...

Re: How do you have your Marmite - or not ;)

I like Vegemite (you have to - they put it in the citizenship pledge ;)). I like chocolate. But this was an absolute abomination that still has me recoiling in horror when I recall the taste.

Re: Allegedly, a Lufthansa flight had child screaming and throwng a tantrum for 8 hou

My kid has behavioural issues. I've been that parent, on a plane, putting up with the looks, the judgements, the comments from strangers - those who think my son is 'demonic', or has mental health...

Re: The Rosie Sparkles Thread

Go Rosie! It's sounds like she's doing really well with the hockey. I hope that she enjoys the wheelchair racing in summer just as much.

Re: "Wee Ginger Dug" on Marrying A Foreigner And Moving To UK

I don't know. To add to my job woes, the air con has died a death (mid-heatwave - yay!), the car needs a new intake manifold flap position sensor (whatever that might be, but it's not cheap), after...

Re: When is Scamp back

And there's the main advantage! Not too many visits from family. (You move 12,000 miles away and some people still don't get the hint.)

Re: When is Scamp back

You were told about the joys of barefoot bowling, what more do you want?! :sneaky: And we get the Ashes, too. They really seem to like swimming here. It's the only sport they show any coverage of...

Re: Sydney

I'd second the Opera Bar. Yes, it's a tourist trap, but it's got great views of the bridge, so it'd be rude not to. For a bird's eye view of the city, head up the Sydney Tower and have an overpriced...

Re: Harvey

Glad to hear that everyone's just about hanging in there. Here's hoping the weather eases up soon.

SM, you've been through worse. This too shall pass.

Re: Charlie Gard granted U.S Citizenship by congress

He could be at home for a week, or longer, once he has passed. Refrigeration options are much easier to organise than ventilatiors.

I've just read the latest court judgement. It mentioned in there...

Re: Charlie Gard granted U.S Citizenship by congress

What a tragic development. I guess it shows that parents don't always have their child's best interests at heart. Sometimes what's in the best interests of the child conflicts with the needs of the...

Re: Charlie Gard granted U.S Citizenship by congress

I wonder what the next move will be from the parents. Their statement doesn't sound resigned or accepting of the situation. It sounds as though they're still looking to blame someone for the...

Re: Charlie Gard granted U.S Citizenship by congress

Miss Moo spent time in an ICU after she was born. The most stressed I've ever been in my life - and she was in there less than a week. I trusted the doctors implicitly, because I desperately wanted...

Re: The Rosie Sparkles Thread

Great news! I was thinking of the family this week, when I came across a journal article authored by a few people from Bloorview (probably spelt wrong, sorry). Fingers crossed it's a smooth...

Re: On the subject of Aldi... who shops there?

Aldi in Aus have just started running an ad highlighting this very point. It features a guy trying to choose tinned/bottled tomatoes and the endless shelves of choice. By the end of the ad he's aged...

Re: Anyone got their postal vote for the UK GE yet?

Probably not. I didn't ask for one, it just rocked up. I guess after asking for a vote in the Brexit thing I was put on some list by the returning officer?

Re: Having a baby in Australia

First Born was born in the UK. The Gorilla was born in Aus (Mr GG and I were already citizens by this point). Neither were straight forward births, with both bubs ending up in ICU/HDU. I found the...

Re: Visit NSW school before enrolling - mission impossible

To answer your question about how parents usually select a school: schools (at least in my corner of Sydney) have LABS annually - usually from June. LABS stands for Look At Big School. It's a chance...

It sounds like Rosie's made some great progress at Bloorview. Fingers crossed that the pitstop is short and gets her back on track quickly. :)
