Lazylou Tue 27-Feb-07 07:41:47

Morning all!

Can you believe I made it here first-ish today?! Only because I'm off to start my new job today so am just about to go and get myself ready.

Tuesday is a bit of a difficult day for me in terms of FLYing. Work in the morning, followed by mad dash to Mum's with DD followed by mad dash to college!

Still, I have been really busy all weekend, sorting through the house and getting rid of some unwanted rubbish. We now have a selling account on ebay which now appears to be DHs new hobby .

Today, if possible, I need to wash up, dry up and put away, quick dash round kitchen and washing. That's it!

Have a good day everyone and I'll probably have to speak to you all tomorrow now!

Hi all
Back again from hairdressers with ds2 (he hates getting his hair cut so screamed the place down, not a very relaxing morning out, lol). Going to give him quick bath now to get rid of the last of the stray, itchy hairs.
Satin and Stacey - hope your lo's are better soon
Hi luda Squirrels is the youngest part of beavers/cub scouts (they start from about 4 y.o. and have very cute navy uniform with squirrels badge and yellow neck tie )

Anyone any ideas for a costume for ds2 for World book day? Can't think of anything yet.

I'm trying to make myself get on a bit today so hope to make some progress about the house. Ds is at home poorly (again) today so I've just tucked him up in my bed with a story tape to listen to - just hope he goes to sleep for a bit now, he's very tired poor love.

~empty dw done
~rerun dw doing
~empty td and put away laundry
~2x loads in wm first in
~make lemon drizzle cake
~hoover downstairs
~mop floors downstairs
~dust downstairs
~mission if possible

That'll do - may be more than I can manage today anyway.

laloop how about Robin Hood? tights or dark trousers and a longer green t-shirt/shirt with a belt - cardboard sword in belt or make a quick bow and arrow and a hat with a homemade feather in it...or something like that! more inspiration atm..will have a think and get back to you..
tort hope to catch up later - nudge me if you're on MSN x
EHM I'll email you soon, thanks for the hugs x
Luda Thanks
