• Hes a new dad , holding down a job that sound quite full on, obviously has medical issues and you think hes just fat and lazy?

    I see a guy who may be overwhelmed by the whole new dad thing, feeling left out, tired, possibly not feeling 100% but not able to voice his concerns. He obviously wanted time alone with you thats why he suggested the…[Read more]

    Oh please no.. Now the songs are going round in my head…. under the sea, under the sea…. Arrrgg My daughter loved that film and at one point I knew the entire script.

    Mind you it was better than my sons choice of film,  Born free then I even knew when the lions roared !

  • Congrats on becoming a nurse…

    Im ancient so my fav disney films are the classics. If you dont shed a tear when Dumbos mum sings baby mine or when Bambi looses his mum youre not human..

    As for music, I was around for the first wave of punk ,s ex pistols clash etc always seemed too angry for me to really get into  although I do like some…[Read more]

    Congratulations.. I had all mine while I was young but I will say keeping fit makes for a much easier delivery and recovery.. It sounds as if you already know that and are doing everything right.


    Enjoy your pregnancy and your new role as mum. Which is the most important job in the world.

  • cassandra replied to the topic why i luv be girl in the forum Fashion & Lifestyle 2 weeks ago

    I hope you dont take this the wrong way but is that what you love about yourself or is it that you love the reaction of other people? Have you considered how you will cope as you age, if your entire self worth is built on the attention other people give your body..?

    Or will you end up like one of these ladies.

  • cassandra replied to the topic Favorite clothes in the forum Fashion & Lifestyle 2 weeks ago

    Couldnt agree more..

    I guess I love my hiking shoes best.. or my wellingtons these both enable me to get out and see the countryside I love while keeping my feet dry and warm..

  • Actually I disagree with the outside world being harsher, armchair experts and keyboard warriors are cowards and use the safety of  distance that internet gives to bully people in a way they wouldnt dare in real life so often  people are much harsher in forums and online platforms than they are to your face..

  • cassandra replied to the topic Friendship advice in the forum General Chat 2 weeks, 3 days ago

    The argument you have is between you and your family member. Your other friends have no reason to ignore this person.

    Time for you to accept that you do not have the right to dictate who your friends do or dont speak to. Once we leave the playground we have to leave that sort of behaviour behind.

    You might not like it but its her choice..

  • Thankyou  @KitKatKitty and @SpinningJen  Im now accepting of my body the way it is but it was hard. I had to say goodbye to all my clothes soon after the treatment as I was forced to accept I would never fit into them again.


    One of the nicest things that ever happened was at the very worst time, I was huge (to my way of thinking) and I was w…[Read more]

  • cassandra replied to the topic advice on a new diet in the forum Health & Diet 4 weeks ago

    Mamie makes some good points in her post.

    I think people mistake being slim and being healthy.

    If you want to be slim just eat less.

    If you want to be healthy eat well , move more and make the right choices.

    I have an autoimmune disease called Graves its affected my thyriod and I had radiation treatment. Now I rely on medication to replace…[Read more]

  • cassandra replied to the topic Do You Have Enemies? in the forum General Chat 1 month ago

    Enemies is a strong word.

    No I dont think I have enemies but Im sure there are a few people who dont like me.  Generally if someone is nasty or I dont like their attitude I just walk away and remove them from my conscious thoughts.

    Spending time thinking about or going over old arguments is a waste of my time so I just dont.

    However if Im…[Read more]

    Sadly my weekend has not gone to plan. Ive developed a bladder infection.. (my first ever).

    A quick trip to the out of hours doctor and some antibiotics to bring home should see me well again in no time but it is quite painful..

  • I have always wondered if I am flawed. I never understood the pop idol worship thing and even now I just see these people as people, nice entertainers , good singers etc but thats it.

    They are nothing more and nothing less than I am flesh and blood mortal beings..

  • Congratulations.

    Its such an exciting time those early months, take care of yourself and try to enjoy it as much as you can especially all the extra attention you get. Honestly,  once the baby comes everyone will only have eyes for the new arrival and as mothers we often get a bit left out so make the most of it.


  • Please go to your doctor. Much as we would love to help you we are not doctors and cannot give medical advice.

    @Herzeka. I live in the Netherlands, I moved here from London nearly 30 years ago. It rains a lot here but the wonderful green countryside more than makes up for that.

  • cassandra replied to the topic New member 🙂 in the forum Introductions 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Bonjour and welcome..

    Your English is better than my French and I bet your German is too. I go to Germany once a month but I still dont speak more than a few words  although I understand quite a lot and read a fair bit .. What part of Germany are you in and are you going to be staying there long term or just for studies or work? Do tell us more.
