Just posting so I get in on my threads!

Heartmum2Jamie Thu 18-Sep-08 14:29:35

Afternoon all!

Saurus, I LOVE the new thread title!

Sorry haven't had chance to catch up on all the chit chat as have been a busy bee! I am trying to make the most of the sunshine and get as much of the baby's washing done as possible (still have no tumble drier). I am on my 4th load, but have done the blankets, sheets, moses baskets cover, play mat, car seat cover & head hugger, bouncy chair cover, towels and have finally started on the clothes. I also unloaded/re-loaded the dishwasher and cleaned the oven so far. Floors need mopping, bathroom needs cleaning and clothes need ironing but know I won't get all that done today. May take the boys out on thier bikes shortly while it is nice.

Ohhh, For anyone who was thinking of getting a nursing chair, I saw a bargain coming to a Lidl near you on the 22nd. I have a second hand Ikea poang chair which i have had for just over 2 weeks now and it is seriously the most comfortable thing, especially if you put a v pillow behind you (I am lucky in that we have 3 in the house). I read to the boys from the chair every night and if I even think of sitting down in it mid afternoon, I fall asleep. Anyway, Lidl are advertising a chair that looks just like the poang WITH the footstool for £49. You can't even buy the poang on it's own for less than £59 from Ikea. I think the cheapest you can get the chair/footstool combo is £110 from Ikea, so a bit of a bargain to be had I think. Had I not managed to get a pristine second hand one off ebay, I would have bought this one I am sure (I wonder if they do the footstool on it's own??)

Excellent title Saurus grin

Heartmum I'm exhausted just reading what you've done today... Good for you though, it's nice to get organised.

PInkyminkyohnooo Thu 18-Sep-08 14:34:29

HeartmumI started off with great gusto this morning cleaning the house, then to the play park. I've just folded loads of laundry and now I'm not sure I can get up off the floor! Cleaning the oven is one of those 'I'll do that tomorrow' jobs for megrin

That chair sounds like a bargain.

Loving new thread.
Glad to put old one to bed.
Oh honestly Oblomov, you just can't help yourself.
Tee hee.

Heartmum2Jamie Thu 18-Sep-08 14:36:03

Cricri, I am admitting to be pretty tired but I know the sleeping thing is only going to get worse, so best crack on while I still have an inkling of energy. Plus once the washing is done, it's done and I needn't worry about it until after baby's arrival. The oven won't need that kind of intensive cleaning again until after xmas I hope.

Jobs are definately starting to get harder, baby's head feels a little lower, the electric shocks in the fanjo area started yesterday...OUCH!!

misdee Thu 18-Sep-08 14:37:01

blimey another new thread!

have also been busy. still packing up stuff. am totally shocked at how much stuff we have hoarded over the years. and tomorrow we are tackling the loft. eeek!

Oblomov Thu 18-Sep-08 14:37:55

Heart2mum, will you please slow down. You are putting us all to shame. Its normally that naughty Daisy, who runs around achieving all the things that me and MerryM, wish we could - tee hee.

ruthosaurus Thu 18-Sep-08 14:38:12

Heartmum, I want the Poang but have just scared myself re: remaining costs of getting ready for the baby. Sod it, it's worth it! I'm getting it.

By the way, HOW busy have you been? How are you doing all this? I have had takeaway 2 nights in a row blush and don't already have DCs to look after! Damn good for you!

Heartmum2Jamie Thu 18-Sep-08 14:42:34

Ruthosaurus, I absolutelty recommend the Poang, fab chair. I am actually thinking that when I wake up with a sore back tomorrow morning and have to pee, I may just kip in the chair until the next time I need to pee to take some pressure off my back, it is that comfy.

As for the stuff I have been doing today, really it's the washing that sounds like alot, but really isn't that taxing until I have to fold & put it away.

Now that I have sat down, I probably won't get up again or do anything else for the rest of the day until I have to put something in for tea!

Oblomov Thu 18-Sep-08 14:52:12

Sympathy to Ceebee with nasty F&M of her little one.
Love to Vbab
And good to see DrsWife and Autumnlady back again.

Laughing at the 'Breast friend pillow thing' which I have seen in mothercare. And the cape - what is that - tee hee.

And I am sorry about the TMI. Please remember we don't 'get on down' very often. But just alot, when we do. Do you know what I am NEVER going to mention S*X on this thread again. EVER. And if I do will someone PLEASE whop me on my sore hands.

Pinkglow Thu 18-Sep-08 15:05:28

ruthosaurus I have those boxes from ikea in blue - I thought they were quite deep and am using them for things like cotton wall buds and toiletries etc

With the name thing, I like traditional names but my DH loves really wacky names so still trying to find a compromise hmm boys names are more boring no doubt

MonkeyMargot Thu 18-Sep-08 15:36:21

Great new title saurus tee hee grin
heartmum can you buy this Lidl chair online or must you venture into a store? (i've never been to Lidl - but I do LOVE that Oasis song about their stores; "Lidl by lidl......etc)

MonkeyMargot Thu 18-Sep-08 15:49:58

Found the Lidl chair - bargain!!

PInkyminkyohnooo Thu 18-Sep-08 16:02:42

that chair looks fab. I wonder if I can justify getting one. We are on an extremly limited budget at the mo, and we need new sofas desperately. Really need one to be a soafa bed but can't see how we'll afford it.sad

LackaDAISYcal Thu 18-Sep-08 16:42:50

Well done Rutho......this one had me chickling grin

Just bookmarking the thread so I can find you all later once I've caught up with today's chat smile

PInkyminkyohnooo Thu 18-Sep-08 16:43:10

I think I must smell or something, always seem to kill the conversation on this thread.sad

LackaDAISYcal Thu 18-Sep-08 16:51:12

<feels ignored>



PInkyminkyohnooo Thu 18-Sep-08 16:55:35

ahh but you were just bookmarking, lacks- not the same thing. grin

LadyBuzz Thu 18-Sep-08 17:02:39

LOL at title Saurus love it!
Well I went on a mission to get the remainder of stuff for my hospital bag and came home with - Nothing - I did go for a very nice leisurely lunch though and had cake which was yum. After that I was just not botherd - Did get my secret stork though, its vv hard to buy for soemone you have never met!
Lidl chair looks good but sadly I have no room so will have to make do with the bed.

ruthosaurus Thu 18-Sep-08 17:08:06

Pinky, you've not killed the conversation, it was a pause for contemplation. I too am having a quiet scream about the cost of this whole baby thang... shock

PInkyminkyohnooo Thu 18-Sep-08 17:18:30

lol just me feeling sorry for myself. I can't believe it either, especially considering I have the big things already. I was earning a lot more money whe I had the other two!
I have been putting off the sofa thing but they really are ready for the skip, tbh. We've been trying to get a second hand pair but they are all very shabby or white or cream (not v.practical).People don't replace sofas unless they really have to, as far as I can tell.
It may be a trip to Ikea and a blind eye to the bank balance.
