Was it not fairly well known that the blind item about nits was Gwyneth? As in her, and her kids had them and couldn't get rid of them?

Is it wrong that I am laughing at going to arouse her 4 yo, rather than to rouse the poor wee soul.

DuplicitousBitch Fri 14-Jan-11 20:19:35

ffs, someone at teh daily mail was paid to cut and paste that shite?

"It's super fun now that the children are older. We do everything together—we plan the menu, often going to the farmer's market the day before, prepare the food, set the table, cook together and clean up. "

"A great time saver is to make steel cut oatmeal, put it in a ceramic bread loaf pan and slice it each morning, add a drizzle of maple syrup, milk and 45 seconds in the microwave—healthy breakfast in seconds and I can make it last over 3 - 4 days!"

Yum hmm

GWYNETH'S bleeding obvious TIPS
FOR MUMS
1. Schedule your time well. When I know what I am doing from hour to hour I get more done. Write it all in the day’s calendar, what you want to accomplish and in what time frame.
2. Focus on the task at hand. Be thorough.
3. I cook a lot, especially on the weekends, so I like to plan a rough menu for the whole weekend and get the food in on Friday. Obviously stores and websites that deliver make this a dream. In London I use Ocado. Also James Knight, my favorite fishmonger, will deliver. Having all of the ingredients means I'm prepared even when I don't think I am.
4. I always lay the kids uniforms and school things out the night before once they are asleep. When it’s quiet I can check the "kid list" for show and tell items to bring in, consent forms, ballet kit, etc, so that the morning is less of a scramble.
5. The school run is a great time to return calls (in whichever direction that the kids are not in the car) so don't forget your hands-free device.

remember ladies, be thorough whatever you do wink

Still cant see the problem

"I'm really in a rush I have a Shaklee vanilla shake. I always try to take the Shaklee multivitamin strip + iron, which comes pre-packaged, to save time. This way breakfast takes a few minutes to make and I have the time to talk to my children about their day."

What a brilliant tip!

Frankly a cold cup of coffee and a slice of rubbery toast does me.

"Family dinner's super fun!"

Why can I imagine exactly what her voice sounds like...

Normantebbit Fri 14-Jan-11 20:29:34

It's too AbFab for words, isn't it.

Normantebbit Fri 14-Jan-11 20:30:29

I can imagine dragging mine around the farmers Market
