Well, this is my last day of maternity leave as I start back on Monday <crying emoticon>

I'm feeling totally unprepared for it all and could do with at least another month but hey ho, got to do what I gotta do!!

Anyway, I've missed MN a lot as not had much time for it recently. What have I missed? I feel so out of touch!

As it's my first day back on Monday, I thought I'd put the breakfast on wink So if you have a particular want, place your order now! grin

Have a nice day everyone x

I'm alright DS has a new bike and he looks HUGE he is only 3 - growing too fast.His old bike broke and when DP took it apart to repair it had been put together wrong by manufacturer and was knackered inside! So I took it back to Argos and camped out until they gave me a new, bigger, better one! grin

Hi, Im a childminder too, can I join in the staffroom, please grin ?

looneytune Sat 30-Aug-08 08:58:27

Sorry just got round to popping back in. Yes, it's gone FAR TOO FAST Never mind. Must put seats back in the car (took 3 out for camping) and then baby car seats. Loads of cleaning to do too but can't crack on til the kitchen units have been put on and everything safe from our building work.

Pinkchick - just about managing now that baby is getting better from the cranial osteopath treatments, he's still a 'needy' baby but much much better than he was. I could just do with a little more time to get him in a routine now he's more normal but we're getting there. Am I prepared....errr.....NO! lol Still need to read the rest of EYFS pack blush

SammyK - pancakes it is then

Saz - no way should you feel guilty, you should be having a massive party!!!

Vi - my baby has just turned 9 weeks old, going too fast

Jojo - of course you can, welcome

Right, best go as ds1 wants to play snakes and ladders and ds2 is crying now and probably wants a nap. Having my hair cut later then off out for a birthday party this afternoon (mindees sister) so best get on.

Have a good weekend x
