I have walked to school all three morning so far and I'm knackered!! No children to look after until tomorrow so will be an interesting morning tomorrow if the weather is as bad as it has been today!!!

All in bed or gone home, a nice sane day today.

We have been doing about rainbows as we had a beautiful in front of our window earlier.

found this to help.

Hello, Took big ones to school then went to soft play and had a lovely quiet morning.
1 mindee asleep and the other 1 is playing. The sun is shining so hopefully we can walk back to school for pick up and see how the 1st day back went.
Off to make coffee grin

Hi all I am done for the day cm'ing - hae nvq tutor coming round soon.

I am feeling nervous. My new family were meant to come do paperwork today have cancelled last minute (baby not well) and rearranged for tomorrow, and Mindee B's mum mentioned dad want to put him in a nursery 1 afternoon a week.

God - what if PP changes mind and B's parents move him?!? hmm

Rainbow activities sound nice shoshe. smile

Mumlove I have just had a big cup of tea and beans on toast - and demolished them whilst still hot! shock grin

Boys - enjoy the sun we had our quota yest I think. hmm envy

Hi mogs. smile

Mine don't restart school until tomorrow, and weather permitting we will be walking!
Have spent the morning refereeing a wii mario game, keeping a eye on ds (3) who wouldn't leave the floor fitter alone, and finally did lunch to have 3 out of 5 not eat it, so am not making cakes now (don't eat dinner then don't get treat food!) and they are free playing.

Can't wait for my reflexology session tonight!

SammyK - keeping fingers crossed for you, and hope all goes well with nvq assesser
Mogs and Shoshe - i'm jealous
mumlove and boys, hope the rest of your days are nice as well

2 mindees have gone home, just the 2 yr old here now until 5.30pm.

What can we have for tea, my brain hurts after having to remember to go to school and then to make sure that mindee brought everything home that was needed.

We had my newest culinary invention 'Fish Pie'

Cook salmon
Cook leeks
Liquidise the leeks and stir in to the fish

Top with mashed potato & cheese

Sound odd tastes fabulous

AIBU: To bristle every time someone refers to their child being 'minded' by a friend or relative? I think it patronises what we do, how much training we go through, etc. I know anyone who is not a cm will think Iabu BTW, just needed to vent in here!

BoysAreLikeDogs Wed 03-Sep-08 17:19:50

Katy sad but fish pie sounds yum

ML - brainache here too bread and jam today they had hot lunch at school

Narky - good to see you smile back in harness soon then eh ??

Tulip - reflexology sounds lovely

Sammy - fingers crossed

Shoshe - I heart rainbows, my mindees are too wee to understand but we like painting them smile

Mogs - go away rain is my mantra, didn't work this afternoon, we got wet. Heigh ho grin

BoysAreLikeDogs Wed 03-Sep-08 17:21:00

southernbelle77 Wed 03-Sep-08 18:02:38
