Good morning all

FGS thanks for the thread (and the to-do reminders grin)
Jas hope you and yours are better soon x
Luda glad your almost sorted with the car

I need to have a quick tidy-up downstairs and then finish off sorting the chest of drawers in my bedroom Instead of discovering clothes I can fit into, I've found that I have lots of lovely clothes which are now too big for me grin I had my first big compliment today from ds's teacher who said I was looking great and had clearly lost "tons" of weight Have come home feeling cheerful as a result I need to work out how to go about getting new smaller clothes when we're really pushed for cash at the moment....
I also need to pop into town to get some bits and pieces from the shops and mow the lawn.

Better go and get started, have a good day, see you later x

Mylast yes, I've been trying to loose weight all summer and have now lost about 20lbs
Luda no chance of shopping for smaller clothes - too broke at the moment...starting to look at exsisting clothes to see if I can adjust them at all (or find a friend who can....don't know anyone though...)

My room is almost all done now. Downstairs isn't too bad but I have left out a big game the kids have been playing with the train track and playmobil
I'm going to do some more then pop to town once I collect ds. The kids can help me in the garden after school.
Bye for now x

It is with dh though at the mo... as the boot decided not to shut properly hmm so he is fixing the catch, and then he's going to power wash it (its been sat on a forecourt for at least 12 months so it is dirty!!)

I'll have to then get diesel and pop up to my friends for one last time to feed her pets (she's back tomorrow) stress is a nightmare! (thank you for your sympathies blossom smile)
We live out in the sticks, so we really can't be without a car.
All sorted now though with a bit of luck.

Right....better get to it on the FLY front!!! House looks like a complete pig sty!

See you all in a bit

Jas Fri 07-Sep-07 12:41:00

Hello all Thanks for the good wishes.

I have a purpe toe, and a sleeping ds, bt he has croup so I'm expecting aother bad night tonight.

I'm ignoring the mission, and just doing a basic morning and evening routine as only getting four hours broken sleep is not a good thing. I've got used to having unbroken nights very quickly now that ds is older.

EHM Fri 07-Sep-07 12:43:44

Afternoon Allsmile

FGS thank you for the thread, hope you have a good day & that dds are both well?
jas hope your lo is better soon.
luda glad you have wheels againsmile as you know I don't driveblush[hangs head in shame] I walk everywhere will Ellie & sometimes its so tiring.
shouldbe fab news on the weight loss, hope you have a nice time clothes shoppingsmile
MLR fab list hope you have a great day.
yadd you are doing well, enjoy your friends visit, oh & your brother.

We had a terrible night with ellie she was so unsettled & kept crying out as if she was scaredshock she went to bed around 8 unsettled until around 10 then crying/laughing then gripping onto me until she finally went to sleep around 1am. Woke again at 450 then slept until around 7am. She has been very strong willed of late, stamping feet & hitting herself across the mouth is she doesn't get her own wayshock When she does this we try & ignore & gently tell her not to hit herself.hmmFed her lunch at 12 & she went down for a damp at 1215.

Sorry for the long post. I am off to have lunch & get organised as we are meeting a friend at park around 230. Have a great day all.x.x

EHM Fri 07-Sep-07 12:44:46

Afternoon ALL

Overdone it a bit but the voice of Dr Kermode is making me feel better. (oh Mark it has been too long!)

Load WM ans run
Go to coffee morning (discuss business, have breakfast, Ed shows his graze off,talk to family worker. Wash up the pots and pans
Go to town
Buy Ed some shorty dungarees and books
Go to bank (deposit 13 unpaid dividened cheques to DH's account)
Go to Tesco
Put shopping away
Chat with Ed
Empty WM
Peg out
Tidy patio
Clean out BBQ
Put coal ashes in composter
Empty Dw
Put away
Make marinade for Chicken wings (lemon, garlic, pepper and soy)
Add chicken, scrunch about and put in fridge
Make tandoori paste

Make garlic bread

Sit down feeling exhausted. blush

Got Ed all day tomorrow on my own (no change there) Still fell exceptionally lucky to still have him IYKWIM...He was so infuriating on Wednesday then at coffee morning he gives all the adults a big kiss and even kisses the baby in my friend's tummy...Bless, why can't he be so nice all the time?

Oh I'm procrastinating. My legs are wobbly and I'm putting off standing up again. I'll be lurking for an hour or so...TTFN
