Yes I know its 1am but I am starting the Monday Fly thread, still washing and ironing at the moment! Still need to make my bed and get in it! Well I'll be back on here later on in the morning. Am of course leaving the mission link to somebody better at that kind of thing!!! My poor new washing machine has had a baptism of fire, 7 loads of washing have been done since I got it here and I've got loads more to do! See you later!

Funnily enough I'm up waiting for mine to finish, (and doing some other stuff)

Aufish Mon 23-Jul-07 01:23:12

I'm off to bed in a minute just putting away the ironing board and then making the bed. Thankfully the kids are on holiday now otherwise I would be shattered later, will be having a lovely lie in as DP is home from work at 8.30am.

Good morning

Blimey Aufish! Hope you did get to bed soon after your post and can give yourself a good lie-in this morning!

We're up and (almost) ready for school and toddlers. It's the last toddlers for ds and me so I'm feeling a bit I've been going for 6 years and have some good friends there - what will happen to my social life once both kids are at primary school?!

We can't do our usual supermarket run today as the town we usually go to is cut off by the floods so I'll have to hope the village store here gets a delivery today so I can get the fresh bits we need.

Have a good morning, see you later x

shouldbe Mon 23-Jul-07 08:00:38

Almost forgot, here's the mission for today

EHM Mon 23-Jul-07 09:07:28

Morning ALL
Back from my Mums after 1 week last night. Lots to do very tired. Hope you are all well & your lo's too.

Will try & catch up with the threads. Chat with you all soon.x.

EHM Mon 23-Jul-07 09:51:56

aufish hope you get a well deserved long lie..enjoy
shouldbe Hope the store does get that delivery. How did the rain effect you overall? DH drove to my parents house on Friday lunch time it took him just over 6 hours because of the weather. Normally it takes 3-3.5 hours.

EHM Mon 23-Jul-07 09:53:34

MLR I've just read your sad news I am so sorry to hear this. My thoughts are with you & your family.{{{Hugs}}} to you all.x.x

yaddayah Mon 23-Jul-07 12:10:09

shouldbe Mon 23-Jul-07 12:20:53

School doesn't break up here until Weds lunchtime am quite of those of you enjoying lazy mornings in your PJs!
We've been to toddlers
No delivery yet at the village store but they seemed hopeful that one would arrive soon so ds and I will walk down again later. I have a pizza in the freezer we can have for supper but am out of anything fresh to go with it (kids won't mind anyway!)

Glad you had a good time away EHM

Better make some lunch - ds is starving apparently, despite eating about 4 biscuits at toddler group!

See you later x

Afternoon all

So the 1st full day of the jolly days. I went on a sponsored walk for funds for the toddler group. 1.5 miles. I went prepared, took huge DS in his buggy and took my walking stick and Ed's riens and wrist link (he ended up in the lake at xmas so I was covering every possibility)

Ed was a real sweetie, he poddled along as good as gold. OK, he chased the geese and the ducks but was well impressed by the 3 ducklings (awwh) So the boot camp seems to be working. I've let him watch scooby doo now. He also had a brown sauce butty at the group [ewwwh]

Done list

Up, washed and dressed
Ed up
Give him his clothes
Get buggy out of cellar
Vac the buggy and air it
Give Ed some trousers that he hasn't grown out of
Eat breakfast
Wash ed
Take him to the walk
Walk 1. miles round the park lake
Back to group
Tidy Ed's bedroom (yeah, he should do it but he's been so good)

To do
Make drinks
Empty DW
Sort wet washing for drying
Make dinner

I've overdone it but I feel that I've done the right thing

Aufish Mon 23-Jul-07 14:45:04

Back from town and all I can say is what a dissappointing visit. Not worth the time.

My done list:

3 loads of washing, about another 20 to do! boo hoo! Can't believe we have that much washing and that's from a week!
washing and drying up

To do

More washing and ironing
clean the bathrooms
put away the ironing from last night

Right I had better get on with it otherwise it will not be done. I wouldn't be surprised if I will be starting the thread again at some stupid time of tomorrow morning as the kids will be up late again tonight.
