Morning to everyone, It's wet again here after a few dry days. No mindees today but I am helping out at the toddler group end of term party (lots of cake), hope you all have a good day.

Morning ML. Its not too bad here, bit overcast, but sun due out by lunchtime aparently. I was up and about early today, ready for mindee arrival and his mum phoned at 7.30 to say that they'd had a late night, so she would take him to school. Fine by me, I've been paid! So, do I take advantage of the fact I have an hour and half before I've got to do anything? I've got time to do a monthly shop tbh! Nah! Lets relax! Have a nice day!

Not wet here

Expecting a quiet summer

LoveMyGirls Thu 12-Jul-07 08:29:44

Hi everyone,
Its going to be dry here according to my special weather clock. I've planned the summer holidays so i feel much calmer now, I should have 3-5 children everyday but will be finished by 3pm (i think) unless i get a full timer before then! I'm quite looking forward to it, we're having a week away which will do me the world of good!

Not much planned for today, got playgroup this morning so just a normal day really

crace Thu 12-Jul-07 09:15:01

Well, I am hurt - no one even MISSED me yesterday! Oh well, good thing I am a tough old bird.

I was out all day yesterday between groups, kids coming and going and then park and then bed. I was shattered!

DD decided to have a horrid night sleep last night, so am shattered again today, and I think a little more short than I would like to be. And it's a 6pm finish today, and DH is at MIL in londontown to fix her computer so allllll alone. sigh - woe is me!

Anyway, enough whinging, back to being happy!

MaureenMcGonagall Thu 12-Jul-07 09:28:33

I missed you crace! I was very busy yesterday though, so I didn't hang about much. Off shopping for the party food in a minute and then back to decorate the cake, so I'll catch up with you for coffee later! Oh and its raining again! That horrid drizzly stuff, where you don't realise how wet your getting!

crace Thu 12-Jul-07 09:52:05

Just had a friend phone, her husband looks like he was playing away from home. She's devestated, and my heart is breaking for her. I am hoping for the best, but it's not looking good. How awful

Fifi! Any news?

MaureenMcGonagall Thu 12-Jul-07 11:48:09

Thats not good crace. Hope she's OK. Bit of a daft thing to say really, she's obviously not going to be ok is she? All you can do is listen I guess.
I'm a bit busy too. Just done all the food shopping for the party. Its all coming together now. Except Iforgot the icing for the cake, so I've got to go out again!
Fifi! I've been looking for you for days! Hows things?

LoveMyGirls Thu 12-Jul-07 12:02:17

My morning is not going so well.....
jess leaked on my lap and mindee has leaked as well with no spare clothes, how long do boys jeans take to dry on the line?
i have no clothes either so am sat her bursting out of the only skirt (size 14 - im more like 16!!!) i could find quickly! I need to buy more clothes but until i get more mindees keeping a roof over our heads is more important, will have to wash my jeans and hope they dry in time for school run!

crace Thu 12-Jul-07 14:03:22

Not good at all, bless her.

LMG - bless you. I know the feeling, I had to give in myself and buy bigger. On my way to lose it again though

Rubybees Thu 12-Jul-07 14:25:09

Arrrhhh I've had a long day which still has a long time to go

Talked to the park this morning with 2 other childminders a good 30 minutes to get to a good one! Played all morning then came home, had lunch ect. and baby went down for 20 mins and hasn't stopped crying, so better pop off againg as she's started again .

I know she's being really rough at sleeping for mum but until today I've have no problems, which means I'll have mardy older children as they don't like it when baby crying lol

mumlove Thu 12-Jul-07 14:37:27

Well I am shattered, even though I have been cuddling and playing with a 5mth old little boy. The older children were bouncing on the castle and the food went so fast. Just a quick 5 mins to have a coffee before going to collect DD and take her to rainbows.
The rain finally stopped and now the sun comes out for a few seconds then disapears again. Well tomorrow is another day.

Hi, I'm here for a mo. Not read it all and feel so out of touch after being away for 2 weeks! Anyway, after a horrible horrible morning/afternoon (ds had bad fall at school and we had to take him to A&E as was in a right state with being floppy etc), he's now ok and I'm well chuffed as my double pay baby's mum insists on paying £70 a night for overnight care when I said less was fine Got baby next Thursday and spent too much on holiday so could do with the extra dosh!!

So, how is everyone? What have I missed?

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO pleased that LMG's is back online!!!! (although she's not online tonight for a change! )

Anyway, a cold can of Stella is calling me from the fridge...............

crace Thu 12-Jul-07 19:59:13

LT - welcome back, though I am sure you don't want to be! How was it? All tanned I hope?

Fifi= aaahhhh, well that explains it. Good! Nice to see you

Very busy week, after what was supposed to be a quiet one. Just a bunch of part timers though, and ad hoc stuff so although it's nice, it's manic too

MaureenMcGonagall Thu 12-Jul-07 20:28:33

<Mo comes in with a broom to sweep up and close for the evening>
What a busy day! Can't wait til tomorrow when I'll have children to look after! I've had three days off and worked so hard on this damn party! I'll be glad when its all over!
Good to see that nearly all the regulars are back in the fold. See you all tomorrow. I'll open up, I start at 6am!
<Mo closes the windows, smoothes out the rug and closes the door on another day.....>

crace - sorry, just seen your message when went to my messages. Holiday was FAB thanks, much needed and didn't want to come back. Should have taken an extra day off work because I had no idea how late we'd be getting back and going to sleep but never mind, it's the weekend now. Yes, got a nice tan thanks but got a feeling it will fade soon as our summer is crap here!! It's been a pretty mental short week here with trying to get back into a routine, ds giving us the fright of our lives, 4 kids under 5 going mad as they haven't seen each other for couple of weeks. Now got the job of catching up with a HUGE amount of washing, doing lots and lots of paperwork, accounts etc - back to reality!!! Want to do as much as possible ASAP as we're going to be TTC next month and first few months with ds was horrible.

Oh, oh............i see sun.........need to put more washing out quick!!!
