Looking forward to the 5th birthdays! Come and let us know what your April 07 babies are getting up to for their birthdays (otherwise Oooggs and I will just end up talking to ourselves again!)

Hi all. Now 7 days post op and it went well. I was home on Friday and am quite sore and can't walk or stand for very long at the moment but am doing little bits of pottering and then resting a lot. Have the ILs here this week and so far no murderous thoughts about the MIL, but DH has gone to London until Thursday for work so we'll see how it goes without someone to roll my eyes at when she goes off on one. I'm being bitchy sorry, she is mostly lovely so long as you agree with her and do as you're told.
Iris has been quite upset by me being away for a few days and coming back unable to do what I could before. we did try and prepare the DC, but she is still little to understand properly. She keeps asking if I'll be at home when she gets back from preschool or ballet or the shops etc.
George is 6 on Friday and his party is Sunday. The ILS are horrified by having to help out - you'd think a pair of retired teachers might like other people's children a bit more, or maybe not? Any way we weren't going to cancel so they'll just have to manage. It's only an hour with a bouncy castle, 15 kids and a few games. No food, just juice and a cupcake each, I did scale things down when I got my op date and I did party bags and prizes before I went into hospital.
Gosh I do sound grumpy, I better go and take my pain meds.

grin How lovely! Aaaaaaaaah. Congratulations!!!!!

oh and Happy Birthday April babies - Molly will be 6 on Saturday smile

cazboldy Thu 04-Apr-13 22:20:53

Hi NL - for you and anyone else who isn't on fb..... I am 13 + 3 with number 6! smile

Oh and Leaky - hope OP went well. Just realised that was two days ago!

Happy 6th birthdays April babies smile

I note in August last year I said I needed a new job. Still working on that.....

All fine here. Bea is delightful. Her reading is amazing (boasts) and her writing is much improved - she will now willingly pick up a pen and write stuff grin More playmobil on the list for this birthday.........

I have NONE of you on facebook. I think this is because I wasn't on facebook when the babies were little and this thread had traffic grin. Now I am though so if anybody would like to link up that way please PM me.

Have just booked a roller skating party this week for George and my April 2009 (Iris) baby is having a soft play party with 9 preschool friends because I got a fab deal on livingsocial. However I found out this morning that I'm having an op on April 2nd to have my prolapsed bladder and bowel repaired, so it'll be shop bought cakes and me barking orders at DH if I'm not fully back on my feet by then.

oooggs Thu 28-Feb-13 19:09:05

Hi Luce, lovely to see you!!!! Are you 'flying south' this summer? Aren't they getting big!!! Our baby is now 4 OMG and is starting school in September. We have booked a party of sorts for Erin & Jack

Lucewheel Mon 25-Feb-13 18:56:50

Hello Oooggs!!!!!!! smile

Utterly unbelievable that our April 07 babies are going to be six very soon

S is growing fast but remains the best surprise that I have ever had smile

Things are very hectic in my household, I have had two lots of surgery in the past six months and am still trying to get back on my feet. DH is going to start working away from home 5 days a week starting on Monday. Wish me luck....

Does anyone else smile when they see the April 13 Antenatal thread?

Hope that all other April 07 families are doing well. I have been crap at posting on the thread but do think of you all often and wonder how all of the other April 07 DCs are doing x

oooggs Sun 24-Feb-13 20:25:10

come on ladies!!!!!!!!!!!!

oooggs Sat 09-Feb-13 22:51:56

Okay we started this thread talking about their 5th birthdays and I have just booked something for their 6th one!!!!

How are we all? Need to touch ground! Facebook sometimes isn't always the place ;-)

oooggs Mon 03-Dec-12 21:12:35

InfinityWelcomesCarefulDrivers Tue 02-Oct-12 20:03:54

Been meaning to hunt fr this and post for a while now (stealth btw). Hope you're all doing well x

oooggs Tue 02-Oct-12 19:50:44

Wow long time no posts!! sad

cazboldy Sun 09-Sep-12 16:02:36

Hi oooggs

tell me about being exhausted!!!!

( and that was me - not just the dc! winkgrin)

oooggs Thu 06-Sep-12 21:19:50

Hi Caz we had day 3 today but they are exhausted when they get home!!

Bramshott - I only pop by now sad but do like to keep in contact via fb with my April 07 friends. With that in mind - happy birthday Leaky x

cazboldy Thu 06-Sep-12 21:12:34

and so...... back to school we go sad

Bramshott Mon 20-Aug-12 13:13:48

Hiya - just a quickie to say that I'm trying to have a bit of a Mumsnet break at the moment! I find that when I come here (to the site in general, NOT this thread) I get sucked into reading threads which either depress me, infuriate me or come accross as deeply concerning and it's better if I stay away at the moment. I know there are lots of great, supportive threads too, but I seem to get drawn to the wrong ones!

Anyway, hope everyone is having a good summer. I'm really enjoying seeing updates from those of you I have on Facebook (if I don't have you on my Facebook and you'd like to stay in touch that way, just send me a PM). We're having a lovely time although O has chickenpox at the moment.

Year 1 after the holidays - wow!

Hi all, long time no talk.

I was getting a bit anxious about Danny's reading but he's suddenly taken to asking me to read with him and I think he's really coming on.

At work, my boss became very ill in November 2011, briefly returned in March/April, then we learned that it was terminal in May. At the same time we had a restructure and I learned that I'm being made redundant on 1 June, along with another 3 secretaries, leaving them with 2 of existing 6 legal secs, and the head of law's PA, and the Chief Exec's PA. I am STILL serving out my notice (been here a long time and they're being infuriatingly slow). Brian died on 10 July sad, and I still can't get used to him not being here clacking away on his braille typewriter.

I'm actually looking forward to my life after here, I have something already lined up to do working from home as C starts part time nursery at the end of September, and I'll probably spend a few weeks just resting and sorting stuff out at home, or working on my index if the work comes through in October, then I'll work out whether to try to freelance from home or sign up with agencies for legal secretarial temp work. Given our current childcare costs, I don't think we can be that much worse off, and the redundancy money is about 5 months gross, so 8 months' take home and if I don't have to pay so much childcare and fares from that....

We continued the tradition of a picnic in the park and us baking a cake at the last minute - Danny enjoys it and it works for us!

cazboldy Mon 13-Aug-12 22:28:59

I have had a mad couple of weeks, dog had an (expensive!) op, pony also spent a night at the vets - pleased to say they are all on the mend.

Dc all ok smile

Molly does lots of reading/drawing and writes some lovely stories - though with some very interesting spellings grin

James is going to be starting Y11! and Harry also transferring to High school.

James is taking a girl to the cinema for the first time on Thursday! shock

Boo!

grin

All well here. Bea's reading is brilliant but her writing is awful. I think I would like a new job. Dh had a new job back in March and it's good but crazy busy. Dd2 owns snails now, dd1 is going in to year 10 (faints), holidays in Scotland from FRiday and need to go do bedtime story now.......

oooggs Mon 13-Aug-12 20:03:53

yes we are all fine!!!! Just had a week up in Scotland and had the pleasure of meeting up with gmm & Charlie and the weather was ace.

Just about to start my last year with a child at home shock, it seems to have gone so fast.

Hope all is well with you and yours and it looks like it could just be you and I chatting on this thread sad

cazboldy Wed 08-Aug-12 19:26:27

I know Oooggs sad

How are you? x

oooggs Fri 03-Aug-12 09:13:32

Wow this thread has died a death! sad
