Up and made cakes to, what time did you get up?

Good morning everyone, mindees are here and waiting to go to school, younger 1 has got all the dolls out and getting older sibling to play.
The weather is dry here and hopefully it will stay that way.
Off to visit cm friend this morning but older mindee has arrived with a rash on cheeks so wondering if school will phone and ask to be collected!

Have a lovely day grin .

BALD, I have one of those, I have a little talk, she come sin on time for a few days and it goes back to being late.

i have cheated this time and told her we have to go 20 minutes earlier now, some times she is even here with on time now!

BoysAreLikeDogs Mon 15-Sep-08 13:15:06

Oooh that is a good one.

I hope I don't have to resort to departing for school without the mindees, but the parent knows that this is my plan for future lateness.

Of course I feel for the parents, but it's not fair for my DCs to be late for school.

Fingers crossed

Baby and preschooler asleep, we've been able to walk to school (as on time) and walk to toddlers too this morning (dry day yaaay)

Catch you later

Good afternoon, hope everybody is well. I have had a strange day where mindees have played up all morning and I don't feel "right"- don't know how or am able to explain it.

Anyhow I topped the horrendous morning of by rushing round at lunch getting mindees ready for afternoon nursery, zoomed upto nursery to find all curtains drawn and doors locked (which is usual if you're late). So I nips mindee round to receptionist and explain that I've bought ** for nursey and she says ok so of I trot around the corner on way out of school gates to come face to face with a bunch of mums on their way to nursery. "You'll have to go in through the door of doom " pipes up little old me. "why?" they ask, "You realise that nursery doesn't open for another 5 mins?" shock. I am so used to being late trhat I just assumed again that I was late!! (many of you know my lunchtimes are very quick due to morning and afternoon pickups etc.)

Afternoon all! Gosh, it's lovely and quiet in my house for the first time in weeks!! DD now at school full time and mindees both asleep so I am actually having some lunch for a change and sitting here reading and watching the news! Sod anything else, I need a rest

Went to park this morning and mindee clung to my leg all the time so didn't bother staying too long!

Off on school run later and then back with 5 mindees and dd for dinner (2 x 2 yr, 2 rising 5's and 2 over 8's before anyone thinks I'm over my numbers!)
