Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. Had a lovely walk just me and the dogs today as husband was at home with the little one (both still a bit poorly). Much as I adore my little girl and my husband, it felt good to have a bit of time to myself. 2. In-laws are coming to stay in a few weeks. Haven't seen them since this time last year...

Re: Share your recipes here

This is REALLY indulgent and a little goes a VERY long way!! But, it is utterly delicious with a wonderfully rich, moist texture. The cake will keep in the fridge for 2 days (if there's any left!). CHOCOLATE GUINESS CAKE INGREDIENTS FOR THE CAKE 250g butter 250ml Guiness or other stout 85g cocoa pow...

Mine is almost a tie between Fleetwood Mack's "Albatross" and Paul Simon's "Call me Al". Showing my age somewhat I fear :wink:

Re: What does your other half do?

Well, I'm going to break the pattern well and truly as my husband is a pharmacologist. Moreover, he has little interest in computers/techie stuff other than for keeping in touch with people, so he appears to be something of an anomoly having a wife who is a psychologist! He'll like that - he never w...

No, definitely husband! 4. Need to organise a proper family holiday. So many places we could go to. Decisions, dec...

Re: Psychology at university

Ah that's great, thank you so much for your help! I wondered also if applied psychology courses offer that experience in placement? Also if I want to go on to get a doctorate in clinical, is it better to do an undergraduate course with clinical psychology or does it make no odds? :) It really makes...

Re: The Cathartic thread - rant here!

Please, total stranger, do not tar all dog owners with the same brush. Yes, I know it's disgusting when you tread in dog mess. I don't exactly enjoy doing it myself. But to describe all dog owners as "oiks who should not be allowed in public places" is going too far. You could clearly see that I was...

Re: Birmingham selection test

"Yes it does seem grossly unjust" :? I don't think I suggested it was unjust. More a waste of everyone's time. I appreciate that applying for jobs, courses etc is stressful, but it has to be said that the chances of a person being succesful are increased if they take the time to ensure they actually...

Re: Birmingham selection test

What is 'lazy and unprofessional' about making it clear that applicants are expected to meet minimum criteria? It could equally be argued that it is unprofessional for applicants to apply if they don't fit the minimum criteria. I have lost count of the number of applications I have received for assi...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

I love, love, love preparing dinner for the family and having it on the table when hubby gets home. Does that make me a traitor to the feminist cause?? Yes. Real feminists and their families don't eat. Apart from babies. I hear they eat babies. (said very much with tongue in cheek, and laughing wit...

Re: 5 things I'm thinking today. . .

1. Walking the dogs with an excited toddler in tow is a real test of multi-tasking! 2. But how privileged am I to be able to walk with my dogs and my daughter whenever I choose? 3. I love, love, love preparing dinner for the family and having it on the table when hubby gets home. Does that make me a...
