New thread for us to quaff and chat away on... though as the sun is out today suspect I'll be pootling around here on my todd for a bit

<starts arranging the deckchairs in best position to catch the sun>

But I am a rubbish driver to be honest.

My friends who failed first time with only one or two majors passed the next time.

Calico1 Sun 30-Dec-12 20:40:49

Hi all, hope you all had a great Xmas. All fine here though DS has been poorly most of the time, poor love. My two both had a lie-in until 8.30 on Christmas Day - I had to wake Lilian up in the end as I couldn't wait any longer for her to get up!

Rosie congratulations on your new little one - lovely name grin

dinkystinky Tue 01-Jan-13 13:16:49

Happy new year all. Hope DS is fully recovered now Calico - seems to have been lots of bugs around this Christmas.

SilveryMoon Tue 01-Jan-13 19:21:08

Happy new year everyone.
Luke's been a bit poorly, we had him at A&E the other day for the nebuliser. He is ok now though. they did a chest x-ray and said there was something there but they weren't sure what it was so gave anti-biotics, and although he has a bit of a cough, is fine now.

dinkystinky Wed 02-Jan-13 09:06:30

Poor L - glad he's better now SM. Must have been scary having to take him in to A&E though. Mind you, Danny now loves childrens A&E (having been so many times last year) - lots of toys and tv - what's not to like hmm

SilveryMoon Wed 02-Jan-13 09:17:33

Yes dinky It's something like that here too! I'm ok with it all actually [heart of stone emoticon]
No idea what to do today. Def have to get the boys out of the house though

dinkystinky Sun 13-Jan-13 20:18:45

Hello all - quiet on here! Are you will battening down the hatches for the impending snow deluge?

Has anyones child suddenly gone from loving nursery to hating it? Danny was in tears tonight about nursery tomorrow - I thought he was happy but wonder if recent staff changes (2 of 3 leaving last term) have unsettled him. Any tips on how to comfort him and make him look forward to it again? He has some good friends there so its not that he has no one to play with....

SilveryMoon Tue 15-Jan-13 18:01:56

Hi dinky. Poor Danny, hope he's ok. Jacob sometimes says he hates school because his friends and teachers are rubbish to him! Lol
I have no idea how you can help Danny through it.
Not experienced any of this with Luke but am expecting it to be bad when he has to go to school all day and not go to the day nursery.
Am sure Danny will perk up about it once he's fully settled back in after holidays.

dinkystinky Wed 16-Jan-13 10:42:49

Thanks SM. He seems to have come out in a really bad cold so maybe it was him feeling ill. He's quite a homebod really and v attached to me and his nanny at the best of times I guess. Keeping everything crossed he settles in ok soon.

oooggs Sat 19-Jan-13 08:31:39

Birthday season upon us already!!!!

dinkystinky Sat 19-Jan-13 11:45:27

Wow its fine round fast! What does Luke want for his fourth birthday? Danny seems to change his mind on an hourly basis. Think we might get him and DS1 bikes for their birthdays this year.

dinkystinky Sat 19-Jan-13 11:46:13

For fine read come! Bloody predictive text. Grrr

oooggs Sat 19-Jan-13 13:22:35

Lego mining, 2 wheeled scooter, Nerf gun, jigsaw & play tent but not all bought by us!!!!!

Luke is totally different to ds1 in terms of development have 3 older siblings to learn from!

dinkystinky Sat 19-Jan-13 15:45:38

Wow that's quite a haul - lucky Luke!

oooggs Sun 20-Jan-13 18:44:14

Luke is now 4!!!!! Who is next?????

dinkystinky Sun 20-Jan-13 20:31:56

Happy birthday Luke - hope he had a lovely one. Did all the snow bring back memories of when he was born (or rather shortly thereafter)?

SilveryMoon Mon 21-Jan-13 17:53:03

ahhhh, happy birthday Luke! grin
Can't believe it's 4 years already!
My Luke wants Mike the Knight Toys for his birthday, and the Moshi Monsters house (he got the tree house for xmas), and despite getting a new scooter for Christmas, he wants another one because he doesn'tlike the one Santa brought him.
No idea what he'll actually get...........

dinkystinky Tue 22-Jan-13 16:33:42

There's the baby boom at the end of Jan/start of Feb - Swampy, MsLucy etc.

oooggs Tue 22-Jan-13 19:31:49
