Yum, have eaten so much ice cream recently. Cooking quiches (in this weather, why, why?)

Hope you get better Ed, do not feel guilty, grab as much rest as you can.

Poor Ciq, I battled the garden too, and it fought back. My strawberries have gone rampant, but the rest of the garden is like a jungle. Sleep well.

Spc environment is def a sign of stuff. Tidying attics is a freudian sorting out your head metaphor, wonder what tidying the garage means?DH is obsessive about the garage- man cave? hmm

snowy enjoy the cones..speaking of which, I'm off to raid the freezer grin

SnowyMouse Tue 16-Jul-13 15:56:28

Well, I've agreed to be assessed for the day hospital. sad And I've eaten 3 cones but no lunch, so maybe that balances out.

Back to 1.5 after they've gone (bra and shorts).

SnowyMouse Tue 16-Jul-13 21:05:25

Just popping in to say good night all, hope everyone gets some sleep in this heat.

Night snowy, hope you sleep too. Have been resorting to cold flannel on chest in bed - discovered on stupidly hot Greek hol. ..

SnowyMouse Wed 17-Jul-13 09:10:04

That sounds useful CiQ

SnowyMouse Wed 17-Jul-13 10:06:43

Forgot to say good morning all.

Notsoblonde Wed 17-Jul-13 10:30:10

good morning all, lovely and sunny here todaysmile

LEMisdisappointed Wed 17-Jul-13 12:48:31

Hi guys lazy day today am knackered had upset with dd over new class dinner late etc so am doing nowt today except crosswords and sitting with my dog on my lap he is so lovely lieveryone needs a little Brown rescue dog x

SnowyMouse Wed 17-Jul-13 13:05:27

Sorry your DD was upset over her new class. Sounds like a good plan, LEM smile

I'm awaiting the crisis team, assessment for day hospital next Tuesday.

hoochymama1 Wed 17-Jul-13 15:23:57

So hot ! Just rediscovered ice cream floats, fizzy pop with a lump of ice-cream in it. Yum.
Hope the crisis team were ok snowy , have you been to the day hospital before?
Keep cool guys smile

hoochymama1 Wed 17-Jul-13 15:30:02

Lem it's all a bit strange for them this time of year, I remember having new classes as a teacher at this point in the year, and it's emotional and disruptive, also dd might be tired too. She will settle down, and get used to things. Have a word with the teacher if she's still worried after the hols. smile

LEMisdisappointed Wed 17-Jul-13 17:27:25

Ffs now dd fallen out a tree not hurt just winded but she has had a shit couple of days

SnowyMouse Wed 17-Jul-13 17:48:35

Crisis team was tricky, it's much easier to rate mood/voices than talk about them, but they opted for the latter. At least it's over for today. I have been to the day hospital before, it's usually tricky - last time I was unwell I was more assertive over not going.

Poor DD LEM Hope things pick up for her.

TheSilveryPussycat Wed 17-Jul-13 18:25:54

On the subject of ice cream and hot weather - this from Sarah Millican's newsletter today...

"Go and eat a choc ice. I’m having them as starters for most meals. And de-clagging my underboobs with kitchen roll hourly."

Everything goes awry in this hot weather. Ice cream is one way of coping, I say grin

SnowyMouse Wed 17-Jul-13 18:29:01

I've gone for chinese/thai fusion, can't wait!

Sarah Millican talks sense smile

SnowyMouse Wed 17-Jul-13 19:17:33

Mmm, chinese was enjoyable (unlike the CT).

SnowyMouse Wed 17-Jul-13 19:18:20

I wish they would leave me alone.

Hi all, ice cream here too... been busy today - yoga, shopping, lunch with dh, inlaws round, school run, heat exhausted children, more shopping, tea, bath for dcs, stories, water garden. Good grief now I've written it down I understand why I'm so dead! Meeting up with some women from painting tomorrow - hope I'm not too dead after today.

lem sympathies re your dd, mine are knackered now and more falling over etc! Wish they could stop. Dds classroom was so hot today I feel bad sending her back.

snowy well done for coping with the ct. Hope your dinner was good.

spc love the sarah millican quote.

Hi hoochy and notso, hope your days been ok.

Night all x

Oh yes de-clagging under my modest boobs...

Slept absolutely awfully last night. Awake lots with the heat and my cough (which on the whole is much better).

Up early and out at a local childrens attraction. Was there 7hrs. No nap. 30C+ heat. No shade what so ever, but there were indoor areas. We were absolutely melting. I even went in out garden pool when we got back. Lots of ice creams and icy drinka consumed.

At this point I bet you are all thinking that tomorrow will be a crash day. Sadly not. I am looking after my neighbours children from 7.30am.... [weeps]. Plan to go strawberry picking as long as not hideously hot (as there will be no shade in the strawberry field) then plan to make smoothies with whatever berries we come back with....

Then friday xp has the children and I will well and truely crash.

Its too hot to hug in this weather so high fives to all. Especially thinking of snowy. You have been strong. Stay strong and focused and they will hopefully back off. As you know it won't happen overnight, but it won't happen if you don't play their game either.)

Uggghhhh....I need my bed...

SnowyMouse Thu 18-Jul-13 09:34:17

Lots of good luck Ed You can get through it. Hope your meetup goes well, CiQ

hoochymama1 Thu 18-Jul-13 09:45:48

Hope you have a good day Ed, don't stay out if it's too hot smile

Good on you Snowy about the ct, day centres can be grim, but, hey, maybe there will be air-con wink

Poor dd Lem, not long till the end of school, it's a lot more laid back when they're home and you don't have to rush everywhere.

Had a c**p day yesterday sad and got into a right tizz about jobs, and just tried to apply for one far far away, and the computer crashed, I just go on this downward spiral of guilt, anxiety, tiredness confused couldn't sleep last night, Bleurgh!

I now need a timetable. I alternate between frantic activity and total sloth..
I can't seem to relax.

Hope that you all have a lovely cool day, love the Sarah Milligan quote, Spc grin

Notsoblonde Thu 18-Jul-13 10:41:58

snowy big hugs, hope the day hosp isn't bad.

ed you sound so busy hope you are able to relax tomorrow

lem love doggy cuddles smile

hoochy what's your plan for today, relaxing?

ciq what a busy day!

spc also love the quote

Busy day yesterday, dd1 had her friend round we went to a few parks, ice cream, she stayed for lunch and tea, I was shattered after it, perhaps why I have woken up feeling bad today, am due back at work on Monday after 2 weeks off and already have the back to work blues, am now thinking all this is to do with my work and perhaps if I did something else I would be ok, or would it manifest itself in some other way? I love my job when it goes well but when am under pressure, that's when I beat myself up, ie did I do the right thing? Is everyone else better than me, I feel like someone is goings to say err you shouldn't be doing this. god I feel like an imposter sometimes sad.

TheSilveryPussycat Thu 18-Jul-13 13:49:17

hoochy the alternation you describe is my natural pattern. Good for taught study at uni, not quite so good for research, hopeless for a paid job, although of course that is just me blush One reason I enjoyed being a SAHM is cos it fitted in better with my pattern...although of course it wasn't always perfect, as Ed's day shows. Hang on in, Ed [sympathy emoticon]

Definitely have a pattern of alternation.

I am fighting hard today. And it is a heavyweight fight.

Been strawberry picking.
Went to asda for a couple of bits. Absolute disaster with 5 children.
Cleaned my kitchen.
Made smoothies...destroying my kitchen.
Now laying on the sofa couting down the minutes until neighbour returns.

Dcs are going to xp tomorrow for the weekend and I will crash for the day. Either in bed or on the trampoline depending on the weather.
