Welcome one and all, especially if you love writing a great list, then sitting back and MNing crossing everything off.

And extra welcomes to those of us who write something we've already done on the list just for the satisfaction of getting to cross it off grin

Very productive Freak!

I'm in a grump. Not sure why, not PMT, have been on pill for just over a week, maybe it's reacting badly with me.
DS1 is driving me potty, DH can't do anything right, DD is pestering me. DS2 is the only one I seem not to be snapping at, but then as long as he has my phone he's happy!
WIll keep an eye on things as I reacted badly to Cerazette a few years ago and went a bit doolally. Have also been sleeping badly at night but had naps after lunch 2 days in a row now.

DONE:
my lie in (couldn't sleep though)
breakfast in bed (see I should be happy!)
bus trip to town (free ticket thing going on this week)
measure kids feet, new shoes for DS2
lunch in town
home for DD's nap
DH some gardening
DS1's homework & some reading
look up some camping ideas for summer
card & present for birthday party tonight

TO DO:
food, DC bath & bed
cheer up!
out to party (no idea about dress code but think hostess is dressing up so best make an effort)

Also, weird or what: invites out yesterday, 1 reply instantly (yes) and no other replies at all! Come on people!!

Are you on the mini pill again jks? I didn't get on with that at all. Tried cerazette, micronor and another but they all made me v depressed and I bled continually :-(

When I first went on the normal pill again I was a bit snappy I think. Have been on it about a year now and still get my pmt before my 'natural' period (around full moon) rather than before the period I get on the pill hmm

FreakoidOrganisoid Sat 04-May-13 17:31:48

Oh and thanks for the reminder I need to get dd's invites out on tue

JKSLtd Sat 04-May-13 17:44:51

Not the minipill, i can't remember it's name, starts with an L.
I could really not cope with 2 lots of pmt! My pmt was getting worse & worse and the cramps were getting v painful too. I'm hoping the pill helps reduce both!

SlatternismyMiddlename Sat 04-May-13 22:09:48

JKS - you are probably out on the lash by now, but I hope you are feeling better. I too have days when I just can't get out of my grump. It might be a one off but it's worth keeping an eye out to see if there is a pattern too it.

Today I didn't get to continue my clear out but I did get ironing done and DH got started in the garden for the first time this year.

FreakoidOrganisoid Sun 05-May-13 17:35:57

Aargh lost my post. Never mind

JKSLtd Sun 05-May-13 19:54:48

Thanks Slattern, today was much better, phew!

Hi Freak.

Today has mostly been hungover blush actually I've not been too bad just vvv tired. DH had a 3 hour nap! It's fine though as the kids were all brilliant today, all the sunshine & garden helped. And now i've got brownie points for another lie in tomorrow grin

Lol jks
Lego tshirt sounds cool! I never think of stuff like that.

Went to town this pm and got most of the stuff for dds party as I needed to go in to go to bank and boots anyway. I just reallyreally hope It is sunny as it will be a bit shit having the beach theme indoors!

SlatternismyMiddlename Sun 12-May-13 14:15:06

Tis the day after the night before. I had a great party yesterday although what was supposed to be an outdoor BBQ had to be adapted somewhat.

Lots of housework was done in advance but now needs done again. Oh well. When I feel more inclined to care I will list.

Hope you are all having a good weekend.

JKS - when you were in Dublin and you looked north (about 120 miles) that was me waving at you.
