I don't know that one Fatima, but ill look it up.

I forgot to write, that it was the first time N has been in his pram, instead of his car seat attached. He was very awake and not sure of it at first, but soon he fell asleep while my mum and I were browsing in the store.

My mum also bought a swinging chair,lets just say it was rather fun. The man said "oh it will fit easy" ah! Huge box, plus carpet, then pram, baby, and other things we bought. grin

Reading 1st thread evil. Made me lol. Evil you had a very strong feeling LO was a girl!

Having a bad mummy moment. LO sounds so bunged up sad but really disappointed we will have to miss baby massage tomorrow. Obviously I don't want to mk LO worse. Or mk any other babies there sick. But just disappointed as we were going to go to one of the mums home for coffee n cake after. But he sounds like vader n I know he won't be 100% tomorrow.

evil horsey horsey don't you stop, ride a cock horse??

fatima hugs - the memory of the person sounds lovely and very personal

Hee Hee the star wraps are bloody fabulous and no faff at all, I can wrap it snug under her chin where as snow suits were too restrictive.

Sorry it should say ride not red

Evilwater Tue 29-Jan-13 21:07:59

MM1- I think we need to have a play date as N wants to go but dosn't know how. Perhaps he could take lessons?

Evil. On our trip to ikea H insisted me take pram angry as. They wouldn't have trolleys like at supermarket. Now imaging trying to get 4 boxes on containing two 5 draw cupboards. Various flat pack storage boxes, 12 glasses, two rugs a push chair and oh yeah a baby! At one point I had to turn my back on H n laugh as he was literally having a strop n chucked a box on the floor.

Whoop LO finally asleep. Crib is elevated on one side so hope he sleeps ok.

Vq and Evil you are both doing amazingly. l am sure it will get better soon

thechick l know what you mean about scbu. l really hope all the LOs in with H are home and well now. l was thinking about howvH was born today ~ not seeing him for over 12 hours, the way his mouth went all white and frothy on the c thingy for breathing and all the tube feeds. Now he is so smiley and chubby l can‘t quite believe its the same baby. l feel so lucky and when l feel a bit guilty aboout him being early (he was fine, it was my body and health that let him down) it stops me wallowing.

Good luck with the jobs kirrin and purple. Once the adrenalin kicks in atback interview l think you click back into work mode and it comes flooding back.

GT- Must have been funny to watch! But very frustrating.

Evil there is one called “this is the way the farmer rides“ with fun actions. Not sure it actually has the word “horse“ in it tho!

Evilwater Tue 29-Jan-13 21:18:04

VQ- I'm sorry to hear about the loss. All you can do is just be there.
Evil

Yes sorry evil again, black should have said cock smile
Complete typing fail!

Thanks everyone, it's hard with the circumstances surrounding it and it not being from illness but I think I will write a memory. He was a lovely, lovely man sad

M is being a cranky pants tonight, she's tired (despite sleeping all day) and hungry but cries when I put her on my boob. She's finally stopped screaming and is watching 'Death in Paradise' from my shoulder.

Uncle Tom Cobbley and all???

Horsie, horsie, don't you stop
Just let your hooves go clippety clop
Your tail goes swish and your wheels go round
Giddy up we're homeward bound

R likes that one while bouncing on my knee

Giving Dottie her bottle in a quiet dark bedroom after a lovely bath with me- find it easier to clean her when I'm in and she's on my legs - should have not bought the integrated bath/changing unit that was used once and is now a clothes horse -waste of £50 😔

Question for you all cos maybe I'm being divvy the advice is feet to foot of bed which I have always been led to believe was so babies didn't wriggle down under sheets and blankets and suffocate?? But now there's sleeping bags do you still put baby feet to foot? And if so what do you do with the end of sleeping bag?? Tuck it up?? Or do you move them further up the bed a bit?? Am I over thinking it?? Lol

Also Dottie is 11 weeks and hasn't been weighed since week 8 when she was 9lb9oz but is just going into 0-3 some of her newborn stuff fits her perfectly is she tiny?? Will get her weighed thurs if we finish in orthodontists in time.

Tom Pearce, Tom Pearce, lend me your grey mare.
All along, down along, out along lea.
For I want for to go to Widecombe Fair,
With Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney,
Peter Davy, Dan'l Whiddon, Harry Hawke,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all.
And when shall I see again my grey mare?
All along, down along, out along lea.
By Friday soon, or Saturday noon,
With Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney,
Peter Davy, Dan'l Whiddon, Harry Hawke,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all.
So they harnessed and bridled the old grey mare.
All along, down along, out along lea.
And off they drove to Widecombe fair,
With Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney,
Peter Davy, Dan'l Whiddon, Harry Hawke,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all.
Then Friday came, and Saturday noon.
All along, down along, out along lea.
But Tom Pearce's old mare hath not trotted home,
With Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney,
Peter Davy, Dan'l Whiddon, Harry Hawke,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all.
So Tom Pearce he got up to the top o' the hill.
All along, down along, out along lea.
And he seed his old mare down a-making her will,
With Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney,
Peter Davy, Dan'l Whiddon, Harry Hawke,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all.
So Tom Pearce's old mare, her took sick and died.
All along, down along, out along lea.
And Tom he sat down on a stone, and he cried
With Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney,
Peter Davy, Dan'l Whiddon, Harry Hawke,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all.
But this isn't the end o' this shocking affair.
All along, down along, out along lea.
Nor, though they be dead, of the horrid career
Of Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney,
Peter Davy, Dan'l Whiddon, Harry Hawke,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all.
When the wind whistles cold on the moor of the night.
All along, down along, out along lea.
Tom Pearce's old mare doth appear ghastly white,
With Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney,
Peter Davy, Dan'l Whiddon, Harry Hawke,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all.
And all the long night be heard skirling and groans.
All along, down along, out along lea.
From Tom Pearce's old mare in her rattling bones,
With Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer, Peter Gurney,
Peter Davy, Dan'l Whiddon, Harry Hawke,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all,
Old Uncle Tom Cobley and all.

Glenda I just put the bottom of the bag at the end. His cot is huge and he'd have to wriggle a hell of a lot to even move half way up.

Every time i go in to do his feed he's barely moved so I'm not too concerned.

Brockle Tue 29-Jan-13 21:32:11

pp we are also knee bouncers to Horsey Horsey. It never fails to get Y smilinggrin In bed and Y is sleeping for the first time since lunchtime. damn you stupid virussad

Glenda I tuck the extra bit of the sleeping bag under babylaughalot so her feet are still at the end of the basket.

Pass do you get to see the results of any research that is carried out? That would be really interesting!

Evilwater Tue 29-Jan-13 21:33:46

Old Tom cobley, that takes me back. They even recreate old Tom at widdicomde in the moor. I havnt been for an age. I can't wait till N is old enough to go!

BigPigLittlePig Tue 29-Jan-13 21:34:50

BigPigLittlePig Tue 29-Jan-13 21:35:29
