Morning All Trips- hope your mouth s feeling better, I broke s tooth mysrlf Tuesday night and do had emergency dentist visit Wednesday, but nothing like you are going through. Glad the school merger seems to have worked, despite DDs "terrible" experience Shabs- Glad Tom was ok, hope they sort the money out soon. Chops - Great pic of your DSin his new uniform, very smart too! Soks - I used to be an assistant leader with Beavers, loved it, but, boy, were they noisy!! Mama - glad you are resting, and, yes, I cried copious amounts when my 2 first started school, now I'm just relived when they start back!! Well, fire clean-up is well under way, our loss adjuster came out Monday and ok' ed everything, including paying a firm to clear the mess up (£2000 just for that!). He has agreed to new fencing, new sheds and greenhouse, new oiltank and lines, new upvc conservatory (dwarf wall etc ok, but 2 sides and roof melted) new windows and french doors to rear of the house, and we have been compiling a list of shed contents, including 4 bikes, weight lifting gear, all garden tools and machinary, all of DHs workshop tools (lots of those!) It looks like the claim could add up as over £20, 000, thank God for insurance! Boys back at school (comment yesterday of "its horrible mum, they have given us a homework schedual we have to stick too!" Homework adds up to 6+ hrs a week!). I have God mothers funeral today, so better get cracking.
Soks - Mike falls often as well, or, in a lot of cases, trips over his own feet when they dont obey the commands that his brain gives them. Again, he doesn't put out arms to save himself much, but he also tends to brush himself down and carry on! He has got better though. His first few years at primary school were the worst, if i could have got paid a pound for each of the school accident forms I received, I would have been a hell of a lot better off!
I'm glad that the insurance isn't fighting you on it, Bubby, and are being effective. Thought of you today.
Sok - Hope Jen is improving and feeling better. How are the other soklets today? X
Shabs, Chops, How are you, ladies doing?
Had a scan today because something didn't feel right and the Braxtons Hicks were painful. Turns out Annie was was in the process of turning and pressing against my ribs which was pushing Sev into my pelvis. Nothing wrong just Annie being awkward. So glad my insurance covered it
Finally have A's day care sorted. She'll be doing day nursery in the afternoons for a week as she has really bad separation anxiety when strangers are there and needs familiar things in strange places. Hopefully after a week she won't need DF or us there and start half mornings 5 days a week - the boys will be joining her when we come back
Looks like I'm up for the day so much for a lie in! Haha.
morning. Spoke too soon re clean-up. A man came today with minidigger to pull out all the stumps, but the actual cleanup bloke's didnt turn up! digger man did his job, but got increasingly pissed off as on his own, now has abandoned job, and left the digger in next doors garden All the contact numbers I have nobody is answering. Also, I sent other quotes as requested through on Thursday, no answers from anyone on those either Funeral, tho sad, was nice. She had a wicker coffin, I was very impressed, it had a pattern woven into it, and looked really nice, and so environmentally friendly, since she loved wildlife, all animals, flowers and the countryside it was very appropriate. Funny thing was, as the vicar was going over Katies life, a really big red admiral butterfly flew up from behind the coffin and started flying around the church.
She sounded like a beautiful person, Bubby. Sorry for your loss. As for the clean-up if things look good they probably are too good to be true! Hope they sort it out quickly, it's not fair to expect you all to live with the mess.
K's first week at school was great. He met a boy who loves to paint too but has already found an enemy, a boy called Joe, apparently he thought K talked funny (K speaking German), so K called him a shit in German and because the little boy told the teacher K doesn't like him. DH wasn't amused when the teacher told but then DH should no better to curse when he's annoyed with someone, it's like the time A started saying "oh fuck" after she overheard. He also had a crying fit when he was told he couldn't paint or stay outside. I hope he adjusts soon! X
Sok - Poor Emily, A has night terrors it got so bad we called Mil-Pond seen an improvement in her though so it's working. I bet Joshua felt like his limb was missing too! Glad the gang is back together
Managed to find a gorgeous fitted black number and wore with my iron fist zombie heels. Although I was either being waited on by Ivan or waiting on the twins. I never realised how snooty some women are. Two friends of Ivan were drunk and giggly and decided it would be fun to "let's see the babies" even though Ivan had prewarned everyone to stay out because of the kids. They went in and carried Dom her shoulder saying he woke up bullshit I had the baby monitor on me. Then sensing his missing brother Dieter started crying. Petrov was not impressed and called them a taxi home then settled the twins himself for me.
Hi All Mama- glad you have reached the milestone, , and the soundly asleep babe "just woke up" what a cheek! Soks - Jen and Joh sound like my 2, Mike was quite happy on his own, where ad James needed contact with his twin. Gladd they are all ok now. operation clean-up ground to a halt over the weekend and Monday, as the bloke who is organising it had a bereavement, Now they are back and should (hopefully) be finished tomorrow. The insurance bloke rang yesterday and said he is just waiting for the ok on our quotes. Our oil tank has become a priority now, as its freezing cold, wet and windy here today, oh how I wish we had hot water and heating, . Also a pain not having a fence, as we cannot just let the dogs out in the garden for a wee, although they are enjoying their 5 walks a day, even if some are quite short. Shabs/Trips/Chops - hi there ladies
Bubby - Glad that everything is back on track. Hope you get that oil tank fixed! The two girls came round this morning and apologised not only for going the room that was barred but for picking up Dom who was only making snuffling noises in his sleep. Still miffed about it but happy that they had the conscience to tell me honestly.
It's midnight and I'm tired. Boys haven't woken yet so gunna dream feed them and see if it keeps them that way!
