Hey new thread since our old stopping smoking and not gaining-too--much weight has been lost from chat! BOO!!!

I am not a good role model however as I HAVE piled on a stone, well 12 lbs now, since giving up the cigs.
This must be rectified!
Hence joining in the club section!

Donnadoon hope you find this thread.

Everyone else pile in, join and be happy or miserable bastard ex smokers

Donnadoon Tue 15-Apr-14 20:28:27

All excited here
Really want to eat the kids eggs already but I'm restraining myself

Donnadoon Sun 13-Apr-14 07:16:01

Where has a week gone ?
Kids broke up on Friday
Yours are half way through
Weathers fine
I got my fence fixed
Not finished painting yet though
Ive been tired, Easter this and Easter that with the school
I'll be glad to get away on Friday
Never been away for actual Easter weekend itself
Done in is the right word
Gonna try and take it easy
Hope you're not working too hard neither

FrantasticO Fri 11-Apr-14 21:35:11

Hiya pal
Still here!!
Going like a fair this end, kids are all having fun
Hope you are all well and looking forward to your Easter break

Hi ho off to work I go!

Donnadoon Sat 05-Apr-14 14:57:02

HA I have all the hair malarkey to come
I only have dd1 s to worry about ATM because the babies have not got much
Its shoes in this house, nobody can ever find their shoes despite having a large shoe cupboard confused

Donnadoon Sat 05-Apr-14 14:51:26

hi again
DH is up B&Q getting a fence panel as we speek
My ds2 lurves crazy golf, its a must when we visit the seaside as there isnt any courses round here
Erm dd2 was 15 months when dd3 rocked up and I might not have said but its been quite hard because dd2 hasnt been jelous but she has been a bit "thrown" by it all
I think it turned her world upside for a while if im honest
she started waking in the night after sleeping through perfectly since 7 months etc
although I make time to do my jobs etc I have to also grab every opportunity to sit on the floor with dd2 and build bricks , shape sort, read millions of books and generally give her loads of attention too.
back later ;)

FrantasticO Sat 05-Apr-14 12:40:37

Good luck with the encouragement nagging for the fence!
Hope your mum has a nice day tomorrow

We are off to play crazy golf today, may the force be with us, then a quick jaunt to funfair grin

Of course that's after they are ready to go...which may still take some time
Who knew hair was so time consuming!

How's the baby and your wee one getting on together?
Bet she loves her wee sister?

Enjoy the weekend!

Donnadoon Sat 05-Apr-14 10:44:41

Aha gotcha
Gawd politics is way over my head
All I know is that if DH ever became prime minister he would ban lorries on the motorway on Sundays grin
Got to get nag DH to fix a fence panel today and off to visit my folks tomorrow as it's my mums birthday
Hope you have a good weekend

FrantasticO Fri 04-Apr-14 23:02:42

Well done you on knowing that the cigs are over.
They are here too.
I hate the smell, though still sometimes think fondly of my quiet times out the back
Don't romanticise the cough or ducking and diving so not to be seen though!

Alex salmond is a man on a mission for power nd independence
I am not a fan.

crazy man

Donnadoon Fri 04-Apr-14 21:38:16

I went to see my smoking friend today
It was lovely to catch up
I was there for four hours with the girls
I think she had two fags in that time
Anyhoo I wandered outside to show dd2 the chickens whilst mate was puffing and thought that said smoke smelled nice at first
I wasn't tempted in the slightest though and as I watched her pulling deep on said fag I thought flippin eck I've come so far, I'm so glad to no longer be a slave to them things, I actually felt relieved that I'm finally free of them
I know for sure that I'll never go back now, I've got too many kids to think of if the worst happened
Before, I used to put the guilt to the back of my mind but now I'm free of all them crappy worries
Gosh listen to me, I sound like a right smug caah grin

Donnadoon Fri 04-Apr-14 21:29:23

<googles mad man salmond and still none the wiser >
Woop your kids have broke up !
Mine have one more week to go
Fence is going to have to wait until next week now
Too many showers
And I don't do these jobs on the weekend, too many kids around that want to get covered in paint themselves and make a right mess grin

FrantasticO Thu 03-Apr-14 22:55:52

Ha I wish I had you energy or inclination for cleaning and decorating

I like the garden to look nice but it's just well, effort, and housework outside that is mucky! grin
Inside I def keep on top of, outside has too many creepy crawlies.
How saaaad do I sound!

They have yet to outlaw Saturday working though who knows what the mad man salmond would do if the world went mad and independence went through!

Friday tomorrow, last day at school for the kids whoop whoop!!

Hope you get some more dry spells and your fence reaps the benefit!


Donnadoon Thu 03-Apr-14 20:39:23

It's my me time grin
I find decorating and cleaning my home really therapeutic
My neighbours think I'm bonkers too, as soon as I manage to get one or both of them asleep I'm out up the step ladders cleaning my windows or something
Saddo I know ...ha
You are a busy working woman too
It's the weekend tomorrow Fran
Have they made working Saturdays illegal up your way yet?

FrantasticO Thu 03-Apr-14 19:38:27

You are a super woman!
Fence painting!!!???
With two wee tiny kids on the go as well as your older one
Easter hat off to you!

Working and more working here...roll on Saturday!

Donnadoon Wed 02-Apr-14 13:35:24

Ah bless yer Mum
piddling down with rain here and Ive got washing on the line that I put out this morning
Been trying to paint fence panels between the showers too, well I set myself a target of one panel per day

FrantasticO Tue 01-Apr-14 21:43:37

Glad the weekend was a winner!

Laughing at the cot rejection, these kids know what they want!

Candles isn't woo at all really, just a mum who likes to light candles at church for all sorts grin

Lovely Mother's Day had here.
Aren't we lucky!


Donnadoon Sun 30-Mar-14 21:05:04

Hiya just got back from Devon
Had a sooper weekend !
Hope you did too!
Tell me more about the lighting of candles, is it woo? I love woo stuff
Anyhoo they both slept in cots til midnight and 1am that night and been snuggled up with me since grin
Grr to being robbed of an hour today, although it was nice to drive back in daylight this evening for most of the journey
Talk tomorrow pal smile

FrantasticO Sat 29-Mar-14 18:21:08

Hey mrs!

How's the sleep going???

Have everything crossed for you.

Happy Mother's Day for tomorrow

FrantasticO Thu 27-Mar-14 19:34:45

Ooohhh saw our thread on active convos saddo that I am getting excited

A million time good luck with the cots tonight!
Fingers crossed for you, sleep is such an important part of my life!
Will send sleep vibes to you and yours tonight, or ask my mum to light a candle both equally scientific ways of helping grin

Again GOOD LUCK!!!

Donnadoon Thu 27-Mar-14 19:33:38

Ps I haven't jogged for a loooooong time
I walk wearing the only thing that fits me ( size 12 leggings)
Old knackered pixie ankle boots
A button up shirt dress top that covers my fat bum
And my lovely old fave warm bomber jacket
trend setter me ? no
Lol x

Donnadoon Thu 27-Mar-14 19:28:23

Ha what is one of those faces then ?
My nan was picked twice
Nowt to report either
Dd was fine with jabs
We baked biscuits yesterday and i ate nearly all of them blush
I've got such a sweet tooth lately
Still raining and hale stoning here today
I need to stop co sleeping
I've done it for years on and off but I'm tired and decided today that I'm going to put both babies in their own cots tonight...wish me luck smile

FrantasticO Thu 27-Mar-14 16:45:05

Popping in to say hello!

Bugger all to report my way in the gossip stakes!
Except I've been called for jury duty work will love that
Fingers crossed I don't get picked
I do have one of those faces, so I will be the one selected!

How's you and the kids?
Still jogging with minimal gear on (evil cackle)
Hope your dream machines aka buggy and car running?

Speak later grin

FrantasticO Tue 25-Mar-14 21:08:05

Raining cats and dogs here too.

Good luck with the jabs, poor you having them on the day of a teachers strike.
No striking up here so far. Sure it will follow though as all we hear is more pressure and less people across all jobs.

Laughing at your lie in, you so know that ain't ever happening sorry to burst your bubble!

There has been much secret activity around Mother's Day by my lot, they are so funny. I am afraid to think what they are planning as long as it does not involve the cooker

Good luck good luk good luck with the little one tomorrow flowers

Donnadoon Tue 25-Mar-14 20:18:38

How's tricks?
All good here apart from the rain, it was lovely yesterday but hasn't stopped today
My kids are not at school tomorrow because of the teacher strike, so I've got a lie in to look forward to
Although Dd3 has her first lot of jabs tomorrow
Hope all is well with you
