to ask what you did today?

(39 Posts)

I spent my morning helping DD(3) learn the alphabet and some paint. She absolutely loves getting smeared in it. Then I took her to the doctor for our weekly check up as she has been ill lately. After that I took her to the park to cheer her up. For dinner we (DH too) went to a kiddie restaurant which she loves going to and playing with all the toys and the slides.

Fell back asleep on the sofa whilst DS was playing... Then ran a breastfeeding group, then an antenatal session, then went grocery shopping, had a cup of tea with my mum, went back to hers for dinner, giggled in the kitchen as my 15 year old brother had a girl over, came home, put the shopping away, got into my pjs and lounged on the sofa.

Bit dull really.

Hope your DD is on the mend.

Got up, got dressed, went for a walk to get 19 week old ds asleep. Lounged about alone watching catch up tv. Cooked dinner, put ds to bed now I'm sitting home alone thinking I should go to bed.

Thank you [sirboob], she is getting better. You seem to keep yourself busy.

SirBoobAlot Fri 25-Jan-13 00:51:20

Keep busy vs go insane, I'm afraid.

However, my body will be unimpressed with me tomorrow, and I will pay for it.

I spilt the atom.

Yay me.

Glad your DD is perkier.

Got up - late.

Got dressed - eventually.

Went to work - in the snow.

Came back. Made food. Had a bath. Did a couple of raids on Wow. Then watched some kittens.

I did the school run then the usual ironing dishes and what not. Then Dh came in and decided we should go and get our pictures done for our drivers license renewals, (here you do it in the DVLA office local to you, in US) So we spent an hour waiting for our numbers to be called, had our eye sight checked, paid a bunch of money and left. Went to bank, hardware store, groceries and home, just in time for the school run, homework, dinner cooking, finish mopping the floors ( I was half done when Dh got his bright idea) Got Dd showed, and waiting for bedtime. I'm bloody knackered, my days are normally drank tea and played online!

Walked to the library with DD and two of my closet friends and their babies. Library was shut so went to our favourite little bookshop, which also has a coffee shop, instead. The girls all had a play, mums had coffees and cake then ran some errands. Then went to one of friend's houses for an impromptu lunch.

Once home, settled DD for a nap then flipped on sofa to do some important mumsnetting thinking.

Did some wee jobs then made DD's tea. DH came home and I popped out as I'm going to be looking over my friend's nursery property (nursery not opened yet) whilst she's on holiday. Discussed my impending career change (switching from one job in education to that of a nursery manager & now thinking about resigning from a pretty amazing, well paid job but all-consuming role so that I can manage this lovely, tiny nursery and be with DD all day..

Came home to DD still awake - teething.

Eventually sat down to beef and apple casserole with dumplings that DH had made, washed down with a glass of wine. Watched 'Junior Doctors', sorted some bits out then went to bed and had sex... by candlelight. Cheesy, I know.

So, actually a lovely day (mostly) with some exciting stuff to think about but, on balance, dull for anyone else to read!

DioneTheDiabolist Fri 25-Jan-13 01:01:02

Dropped DS off at school. Had a fry up in a greasy spoon. Had a cocktail in posh hotel at midday. Spent the afternoon in bed with BF. Had a shower and went to DF's for dinner.

Am tired of never getting out cos I don't have a sitter, so had a daytime date instead.grin

giraffesCantGoFirstFooting Fri 25-Jan-13 01:01:49

A nebulizer , medicine inhaled in lungs pushed through with some oxygen,

Clearlymisunderstood Fri 25-Jan-13 01:03:08

Got up late, dropped DD off at my sisters, went to work. Finished work, came home, stripped gloss paint from a door, cleaned up, ordered takeaway, fell asleep on the sofa, just woke up.
My sister is having DD overnight as I have work again tomorrow, don't know what to do with myself when she isn't here!

I cleaned the kitchen floor (half arsed), tidied the playroom, watched a film with the DC's as they were home from school, cried over my budget, made cauliflower crust pizza for lunch, pottered about as I had a headache, made beans and chips for dinner, put the children to bed with a bigger headache, broke the shower head so I had to wash my hair with the hose tube thing, cleaned up dog poo from the living room and caught up on the great comic relief bake off.

I lead an exciting life.

manicbmc Fri 25-Jan-13 01:03:55

Bit shit then, Giraffes?

ripsishere Fri 25-Jan-13 01:04:40

We got up late, it was a national holiday, had some breakfast, me and DD went to buy stuff for lunch and got the Hobbit on Dvd, came home, had lunch, went out again so DH could get his hair cut, came home, took DD swimming, had our dinner and went to bed.
Today will be marginally less interesting.

manicbmc Fri 25-Jan-13 01:06:23

It's my day off tomorrow. Dp is off too. I may get a shag but it won't be by candle light. hmm

giraffesCantGoFirstFooting Fri 25-Jan-13 01:06:27

It's even more shit now, Someone in my room has just been given last rights by priest!

giraffesCantGoFirstFooting Fri 25-Jan-13 01:07:07

I will get a shag when I get out hospital but will be a lazy one with me not doing much!!

ripsishere Fri 25-Jan-13 01:07:34

Marvellous. Can your night get better Giraffes? how long do you expect to be in for?

toobreathless Fri 25-Jan-13 01:08:03

Jealous of just about everyone except giraffes

Got up 0630, got DD up 0700, dropped DD to nursery.
Worked 0830 to 1815
Went to Sainsburys cafe for a sandwich
Worked at Out of hours 1900 till midnight.

Not my choice, luckily I only have one OOH shift a month & ten working days till mat leave. Yippeee!

manicbmc Fri 25-Jan-13 01:09:44

Is the priest not up for it, Giraffes? grin

You poor sod. Sounds bloody awful and hope you're home soon. smile

toobreathless Fri 25-Jan-13 01:10:21

giraffes would you like to borrow my MN name grin?

giraffesCantGoFirstFooting Fri 25-Jan-13 01:15:41

Nurse has put me in relatives room as I can't sleep. Poor lady and family!

giraffesCantGoFirstFooting Fri 25-Jan-13 01:16:09

Ha ha Yes although I might be too breathless to shag

FanFuckingTastic Fri 25-Jan-13 01:17:15

Slept until 3:35pm, with a brief wakening to wail for my hot water bottle and kiss the children goodbye to school.

Moved to my computer chair and opened the post. Stood up and did a crazy dance because my appeal letter to the council to up our room allowance was successful, we now qualify for three bedrooms and the whole rent is paid in benefits. One less thing to worry about.

Did another little boogie for my £25 cheque because of how cold it's been.

Filled out some more of my DDs assessment form for Paediatrician. Wrote some notes for the meeting at school tomorrow with my social worker, Homestart, school wellbeing etc. Filled out a form for an assessment from the council for a disabled child.

Made some phonecalls, mostly arranging transport for a trip at the weekend and medical shite.

Spent a couple of hours upstairs getting the girl child to just settle and sleep. She was not having it.

Made my dinner eventually at 11PM (carer did the kids, but I'm slimming so wanted to do my own), and made some snacks for tomorrow (roasted veggies) and boiled some rice for my breakfast.

Played some computer games. Now going to drug myself and sleep, ready for this meeting tomorrow, and an attempt at swimming with my carer.

SirBoobAlot Fri 25-Jan-13 01:18:08

Giraffes, admit it, you just love the hospital food too much wink

I'm sorry you're still in though, hoped you had been discharged by now.

giraffesCantGoFirstFooting Fri 25-Jan-13 01:20:08

Should hopefully get out tomorrow!

giraffesCantGoFirstFooting Fri 25-Jan-13 01:21:07

Oh God if I ever see another potato I might scream! They serve potato with everything in here

giraffesCantGoFirstFooting Fri 25-Jan-13 01:22:12

Was that a reference to my Facebook sir?! Can't remember who on it and who is who!

80sMum Fri 25-Jan-13 01:23:56

Ah well, same as usual. Got up, went to work, worked, came home, ate supper, watched TV, then checked out MN on my mobile before going to bed. 2 hours later I'm still here .....

SirBoobAlot Fri 25-Jan-13 01:24:20

I don't think I'm on your facebook... Initials are EMD?

And yes, I feel your pain... Got my op booked in for six weeks time and thinking about going carb free in the build up, to make up for the fact it is potato central.

giraffesCantGoFirstFooting Fri 25-Jan-13 01:46:23

Lunch was pasta and potatoes ha ha

giraffesCantGoFirstFooting Fri 25-Jan-13 01:51:31

Nope sir

I have been posting pictures of each one!

Mid afternoon here, kids still on school holidays. We went out to our favourite haunt which is an Education Farm Park. DS (8) and his mate headed straight into the (small and completely impossible to get lost in) woods to make huts ad didn't see them for next 5 hours except to gather food stuffs to take into their hut. DD (3) and friend alternated looking at, patting and feeding animals, playing on small play area and picnicing while my friend thoroughly enjoyed catching up with them. Kids now sitting on porch with iceblock and I am having a cuppa before contemplating dinner.
I love Summer in NZ.

Toomanycuppas Fri 25-Jan-13 03:12:00

Well, it's tomorrow here so I'll tell you what I'm doing now, Friday in Oz - woke up 6.15, checked FB on phone whilst having cuppa in bed and had chat to cousin in UK about snow, decided we should swap one day's weather with each other. Got up, showered, dressed and put new sheets that I bought yesterday in the machine ready for changing bed tonight. Had nectarines, greek yoghurt and walnuts for breakfast (how Mediterranean of me). Tidied kitchen, hung out sheets, watered herbs, drove to work. Helped DH unload a sofa off the ute into our storage shed at work. It's for DD when she moves out. Had more cuppas, did work, reconciled petty cash for last six months and now it's lunch break and I'm on here, having painted my nails so I can't do any other work yet in case I mank them up.

Will be having a BBQ tonight and a one hour walk on the esplanade and then we have a long weekend for the Australia Day public holiday so more BBQ's and summer shenanigans. I like it here most of the time.

Kafri Fri 25-Jan-13 03:29:29

Spent the day with a very colicky 5wk old who screamed from 6am to 10pm - poor baba. Fully expecting tomorrow (today) to be as bad if previous weeks pattern is anything to go off. Stuck in the house as chat take him anywhere like this and a walk is out with how much ice is about here! (Me + ice is a bad idea, me + ice + pram is an even worse idea) :-)

Roll on the end of colic!
