Up and breakfast plonk on table, we all over slept Made sandwiches for packed lunches Chopped and acidated apples for packed lunch, they won't eat them if the go brown Shooed family out the door WM on Cleared breakfast things away My breakfast in peace Dressed for Pilates Second breakfast for OH Swapped loads in washing machine Went to Pilates, survived Back home and collapsed in a warm bath Caught up on MN
Cook pasta for tomorrow's packed lunches Decide what to eat for lunch Pop out for errands General tidy up and whizz round Collect DDs at 6 Eat out Attend meetings at school at 7.30 Come home and go to bed.
I cooked breakfast today, DD2 asked last night for scrambled eggs. This morning OH asked for porridge and I said I was doing eggs etc, he said "well, can you do porridge as well" I didn't do porridge as well
Then I fed the dogs, went to Pilates, supermarket and then back home. Hosed down dogs as they'd escaped again. Had brunch, mushrooms on toast, as the cereal I'd eaten didn't last me long. Gave dogs a snack, puppies have lost a lot of weight at the kennels Had another tea and caught up on MN
DW still hasn't been emptied.
Later I need to take DDs out, after school.
I really must empty the DW, think I'll put the kettle on.
We are having a few hot sunny days, so I've done laundry, 5th load in now, plus hand washing. Towels are dry and folded. Not much else achieved as went to Pilates and have been trying to persuade dogs to do as I command not going very Well Today
DW has been Emptied and reloaded, need to spray some anti mold in the shower. Vacuuming can wait for now, just need to clean the kitchen floor as dogs have been inside.
We're on holiday right now so no flying is being done. I do have a to do list, though, but mostly consists of catching up on emails, cards and letters, writing postcards, helping SB write cards (I write them, he signs his name), going to the post office, etc. It's a hard life, really.
DD is improving but apart from getting her showered, then myself and washing her clothes and bedding I haven't had time to do much. I have done food though and even fed the dogs as OH apparently doesn't have time. We missed dog training today so hope to start on Thursday now. There was mucho confusion though as after I texted the vet to change the chap turned up here, but we're doing it the vet's. I need to speak to him tomorrow. No Pilates tomorrow as DD won't be fit for school.
So much for dinner ideas, DD1 has a bug and I now realise why my digestive system has been so active these last couple of days.
I collected DD1 from school just before midday, back home, didn't want to eat, back out to collect DD2 and got the shopping I wanted from a different store. Other than that it's been wiping up and changing bed sheets. She's sleeping now so I'm hoping she'll stay asleep.
Tonight we've eaten plain chicken with rice, OH and DD2 added condiments and DD1 isn't eating.
Tomorrow we start training OH the dogs, provided DD1 is okay to be left or come with.
I struggled, bravely, through breakfast etc this morning. My back had seized solid but after an hour of stretching it this way and that in pilates I can move again
New bed sheets have been washed and are hanging, dropped over the banister because I can't reach up. Tried to get a few bits in the supermarket but had to abandon it as my international card causes confusion.
Back home, breakfast in peace, I wasn't hungry earlier.
Aaah, so nice that you've been spoiled, and a belated Happy Birthday
We went out yesterday so nada in terms of flying. Today we popped out but local so DD2 was able to get her laundry done. They were using too many resources by refusing to cooperate so now one washes all the lights and the other washes all the darks.
Lunch was eaten out so I've done breakfast tidied away, Showered and treated little mold patches hand washing and put all washing on the line, DD2 can't reach, chivvied DDs to get ready so we could actually leave, sorted dog's food, watched a movie with DDs & OH, dinner, cleared away, packed up pasta for tomorrow's lunches, DW loaded and switch flicked made tea, collapsed.
All fine in PiLShire, thanks Adora. We came down so my SiL & her fiancée could join SB and I for a trip to the cinema. It was also my birthday so there was plenty of spoiling, presents, cake, lunch at the flying club/airfield (a real treat for SB, too, so he can see all of the planes), etc. MrScout joined us last night after work and joined in the spoiling. I feel really very lucky and a tad overwhelmed.
SB has been up since half-past stupid o'clock (read, just before 6 a.m.) when he woke desperate for a pee. So far we have:
both had breakfast cleared up breakfast dishes put out breakfast stuff for my PiL (SB likes to help get out the bowls, spoons and boxes of cereal for them) two loads of laundry done one load of laundry in the dryer, the second on the line third load of laundry loaded in the washer but not set going yet played with Brio played with Lego played outside updated my diary (I have a diary that I write an overview of what SB has done each day -- helping me to prepare for when I start to HE) reigned in the presents that seemed to have spread out and made a tidy pile, ready to be packed up later
Yesterday was spent travelling from Scoutshire to PiLShire via the Big Smoke. Three trains and a very happy SmallBoy. Took him to the optician as I've noticed he's been struggling and they're referring him to the hospital for more tests (and probably glasses).
Today has been spent being spoiled, taking SmallBoy to the cinema for the first time and eating . Birthdays should happen more often.
Flying is out the window this weekend as we're away. However, MiL said to bring our laundry (since we're only home for a half-a-day next week before we go away) so will do that tomorrow (MrScout brought it down with him tonight).
Shopping pre school run Quick coffee School Dropped freind's DCs home More shopping Home Brought clean stuff in but it was just after dark so slightly damp again Made dinner while DDs started on a movie with OH Watched end of the movie Sent DDs to bed Brought shopping in and put the car away Had a tea and updated on MN
Me too Scout I swear my Pilates teacher tried to kill us this morning. Despite that I've done 4 loads of washing, two hand washes, hung everything out. Fed dogs, fed kids, offered OH food but he declined (not my problem), I've eaten, bathrooms have been S&S'd, kitchen skimmed over, emptied DW and refilled it, including the salt.
Washing completed - apart from DD's which they'll put on in the morning- and most brought back in. One load of towels were too wet still so can sit there until they dry <stern face>
Dinner is underway and dogs have been fed and booted out. I have no clue what DDs are having for lunch tomorrow as I haven't shopped yet.
Have taken a leaf from another MNer's book (thread in Chat, can't remember who now -sorry) and DDs are going to be responsible for the evening meal one day each week.DD1 has chosen Tuesday would I be cynical to think that's because I'd already started dinner tonight? but DD2 can't decide yet.
<leaves fresh coffee, I'll need it, and pastries for breakfast>
In SB's eyes I was a failure (though I don't think he knows the word failure). Even offering alternatives (like oaty bars, which don't get offered until mid-morning, normally) wasn't cutting it. Ah well, I'm off to the shop tonight.
