  1. I just had a look at various sauce bottles in my cupboard and most just list ‘spices’, one listed the actual spices after but it was definitely not the norm. I’m in Western Australia.
  2. We usually only get 5-6 kids, weather here meant we only got 1 this year which was a bit disappointing. My 3 and 5 year old went out for the first time though and loved it though. They just did about 10 houses on our street and came back delighted with their little haul of candy, $2, and a tiny crystal! We’re in Australia and it’s not widely celebrate here, but some areas have started ramping it up.
  3. I'm surprised you didn't get made painfully aware at the time that you were kidnapping, magpie parents are scary!
  4. I don't have adult children, but my parents are by their first name so will continue to be so when kids are grown. I don't call my in-laws mum and dad so they will continue to be referenced as Nanna and Grandpa
  5. My daughter had mesenteric adenitis after a virus, inflamed lymph nodes in the abdomen. I can't remember what the initial virus was but I don't think it was stomach related. It was extremely painful at first, she could barely walk for a couple of days, after that it was a lot better but she would often seemly randomly complain of stomach pain. Thankfully it only lasted a a few weeks but our GP said it could last a lot longer and it could flare up on occasion. She did get stomach aches more often than typical in the months after but not severe ones.
  6. I have always made my DH's lunch, before kids it made more sense to me time/effort wise than both us in the kitchen making our lunches separately and he was happy to eat whatever I made whereas I was not happy to eat whatever he made. After kids it just continued, but it's not like he's sitting on his arse doing nothing while I'm making his lunch and morning coffee, he's organising and feeding small children.
  7. Yes, these threads have exposed me to a viewpoint I'd never heard before and it has made me rethink how I view some of the issues surrounding transitioning.
  8. I'm in Australia and I think the attitudes are a little different here. If our version on CPS came knocking the only reason I'd have any thought about lawyers would be from reading US based threads on here! I just don't think that we have a culture of lawyering up in general, though we are a large country so there could be regional differences. I think in regards to other departments it would depend on who and what. It would mostly be a cost benefit analysis in relation to the particular incident for me, ideology would only occasionally come into it. I would not permit a search of my house without a warrant and I would get a lawyer if I was actually being charged with something or accused of a serious crime.
  9. Why does it matter if someone wears the same thing every day? Most employees should only be expected to be clean, tidy, and fit the expected dress code. I work in an office 4 days a week, I wear the same pants (slacks) every day unless they get visibly dirty and I have 4 shirts I mostly wear. Plus spare pants and another few shirts I wear occasionally. Sometimes I don't even wash my shirts after every wear, I work in an air conditioned office so I don't get sweaty and if I don't spill anything on them they stay clean.
  10. To me it sounds completely reasonable to attend practice even if injured, but where I am that would usually mean once a week unless you were competing at a state or national level.
  11. I'm in Australia, lots of street decorations already up here. Probably shops too but I can't remember if I've seen them. I don't usually see houses decorated until December 1 though.
  12. If she normally hides in a corner when she comes to your family events is it possible there is at least some social anxiety or such at play? I'm trying to imagine my sister, who struggles with social anxiety among other things, turning up to an in law event without her partner. She just couldn't do it, it would probably make her physically ill. If this is the case then it's not really her desire not to be around your family superseding your daughter's accomplishment, it is a mental health issue.
  13. If my memory is correct the Circle of Magic serious is aimed at a younger audience than her more popular Lioness books, I remember nothing in the way of sex or even really romance (maybe a little?) in the Circle of Magic books.
  14. Now I have read the poll I have too many options and I can't remember what I normally do. Except that it is definitely incy wincy spider!
  15. I don't mind spiders when I can see them, but freak out when they surprise me. I had one drop on my head as I walked under a doorway once, she had an egg sack on her back and they must have been ready to hatch because I ended up with baby spiders all through my hair.
