AIBU create a little quiet corner?

I thought I'd make just a little quiet place to sit and sing 'la la la' inside my head.
It's a special place where no-body gets hold of the wrong end of the stick and no-body feels insulted or marginalised.
La la la........

This is a lovely place to be Notsogrand - very serene.

notsogrand what a good idea, bunk over grin

twizzle Wed 08-Jun-11 14:39:41

glassortwo - no 'bunking' in the quiet corner please, tread very carefully and wear your slippers.

glassortwo Wed 08-Jun-11 14:46:37

ohh twizzle I always tread carefully, my gran had tartan slippers with pom poms on the front, <wonder if I could get a pair>

Oops! Rather a big gulp of my wine there. I'll try not to rattle the ice-cubes (!!!!! Yes, I am that bad!) as well. wink

Gettting a bit crowded, but we can all budge up, that's fine. Thanks for the wine Because, half slurped already. Will pass on the crisps though (diet) so they can be shared amongst the skinnies.
Puzzled about ice cubes in wine baggy until I make ice cubes from wine, then just add to chill. Yes? No-body would dilute wine...would they? confused
My slippers are £2 bung in the washing machine ones from Asda, but sooooo quiet.

Notsogrand Wed 08-Jun-11 15:11:57

Mmmm...hope my comments about ice cubes don't count as getting hold of the wrong end of the stick or I'll have to leave the quiet corner! grin

That's OK notso. What stick would that be? Did you bring some wood for that stove in the corner? If your local climate is anything like mine, we'll need a fire by evening.

...can I please nudge up...I'll be a very good girl! smile

Notsogrand Wed 08-Jun-11 15:49:37

In you come supernana.....plenty of room. Very cold here too baggy (south coast) and wind howling a gale. Still, we can have a fire, couple of hot toddies, snuggle down and try not to fret about mid-summers day being less than a fortnight away.

This is very restful.Between worrying about apostrophes and split infinitives not to mention rude words I was feeling a bit exhausted. I know its still light but can we draw the curtains anyway and light candles. I need to sleep.

HildaW Wed 08-Jun-11 16:18:59

Just as long as nobody starts up with any whale music!

glassortwo Wed 08-Jun-11 16:21:58

My feet are freezing, been to the park after school before the rain came, will have to get some slippers, put the stove on notso <love lists, should I start my Christmas list>

Notsogrand Wed 08-Jun-11 16:22:45

Close the curtains by all means sunny I have some home-made perfumed candles that I'll light......enjoy your nap.

supernana Wed 08-Jun-11 16:23:17

I like it here...have brought my book of poetry, big mugs of coffee with a wee dash of whatever you fancy and a mega pack of Scottish Tartan Shortbreads...lovely!

glassortwo Wed 08-Jun-11 16:32:57

supernana think of those of us that are dieting grin dont put temptation in our way.

Notsogrand Wed 08-Jun-11 16:36:19

Could we have a virtual shortbread glass?

baggythecrust! Wed 08-Jun-11 16:37:45

So sorry, notso, but please could we light plain beeswax candles instead? Trouble is, I'm allergic to perfumes and I'll probably get a headache otherwise.

glassortwo Wed 08-Jun-11 16:39:45

notso go on then just this once grin

sprinkles Wed 08-Jun-11 16:40:01

I'm joining you. I have been looking for a nice, friendly and quiet place.

Notsogrand Wed 08-Jun-11 16:45:14

Ok baggy I've blown out the patchouli oil candles. Plain beeswax on their way. No headaches allowed in the quiet corner smile
Nice to see you sprinkles....all quite chilled out in here.
I've decided not to have the one virtual shortbread glass....because one is never enough.

baggythecrust! Wed 08-Jun-11 16:48:20

Thanks so much, notso. So kind.
