Good Morning Ladies and how are we all this morning?

Numberfour Tue 20-Jan-09 07:01:41

Morning! All fine here, thanks! You all settled now after your move (aside from the BT debacle of course!)

Staying in today after school run to play with the toddlers and not to have to spend morning rushing between school runs and outings. The 11.30 preschool pick up is a bit of a pain, but don't tell DS i said that grin

thebumcleaner Tue 20-Jan-09 07:04:23

Morning. I am waiting for my first mindee who is late (normal, sometimes up to 90 minutes!) and then second mindee at 7.45 (who is usually early!)

Shoshe Tue 20-Jan-09 07:12:19

Yes new house is fab, love it, God knows when we will get BT tho.

Shoshe Tue 20-Jan-09 07:38:16

BT saga here

crace Tue 20-Jan-09 08:15:28

Morning! Shoshe, what a nightmare for you!!

Hey No4 - same here, preschool runs after school runs are a pain aren't they?

Hey TBC (wink) - It hurts when they are late that early, you could be sleeping! grin

Same old here, after schoolie - yesterday we had some swearing and generally being very rough so I need to get some firm and gentle rules laid down.

Morning all

thebumcleaner Tue 20-Jan-09 08:35:23

Well, full of mindees now, she was only 45 minutes late so not too bad as here anyway, but laptop now playing up aarrgghhhh.

mumsanutter Tue 20-Jan-09 08:44:26

Morinng all, Sorry to hear that you aren't having a good week Katy.

Mums house is still in chaos - ds1 has got a horrible cough (sounds like croup) and has made himself sick so is off school ill hmm, so have made a doctors appt for him and ds4 who appears to have the same! Only thing is that appt is at 9.40 and I have to drop mindee and ds3 at nursery for 9.30.....hmm

Lets hope that the day gets better!!!! On a plus side I am under 14st the first time since I can't remember and I can get into some size 14 trousers grin, going to try to be really good for the next 2 weeks so that I feel good about myself when I go to NY grin
