Morning Jas.

Good morning chinwagsmile

I'm going to do breakfast. Back when my morning routine is done, and we are ready for school.
Toddler group starts again today, and I am quite looking forward to it.

Morning Jas Have a good time at toddler group (i'm ducking out of our toddler group today in favour of shopping.

Hi and welcome to chinwag smile

Well normal day today....yesterday was a great day, DD1 was actually grateful!!! shock

I have to shop today...last few things for DS, and some pary food for saterday.

I'm half way through my morning routine...everyone was up so early this morning!

We have a new Dining Table (don't have a dining room...it is in one end of the living room) Its huge! My neighbour and I swopped. Its great though, we can all fit round it!

Oh....I was meaning to ask...I have minced meat in the freezer...I normally get it out the day before and put it in the fridge to defrost... except I forgot yesterday...now if I put it in the fridge today it won't defrost in time for supper...is it ok to leave it out the fridge to defrost? (blush)

Jas Thu 13-Sep-07 07:25:16

I often do, and haven't poisoned anyone yetgrin

ludaloo Thu 13-Sep-07 07:48:53

grin ah...ok...I don't have much of a clue when it comes to things like that!
I'll get it out now smile

Morning all!
Hi to newbies! Us old crones are v welcoming you know grin.

I am off to source any High School Musical things I can find for dds birthday - have been banned by hall we hired from holding halloween themed party so have masses of decs and props that we can no longer use hmm. I kind of respect their stance, but really wish they let me know they had conditions when I booked it!

So, if anyone has any cheerleaders/basketball players or Troy Bolton they would like to declutter, I'll take them off your hands grin.

EHM Thu 13-Sep-07 08:08:01

Morning Guys.

Ruby - when is DDs party? I got pom poms for DD from there last year....

ludaloo Thu 13-Sep-07 09:01:41

Thanks EHM smile...I've left it on the side.

Ruby why wouldn't they let you do a Haloween theme? How annoying!!

shouldbe how is your costume comming along BTW??

Well I'm just having a quick tidy round, then off into town.

See you all in a bit smile

ShrinkingViolet Thu 13-Sep-07 09:08:45

with mince from the freezer I give it 5 mins in the microwave to soften it round the edges, then brown it from frozen in the pan. We've all survived so far!
I'm "jumping in where we are" having done all the outstanding washing up last night blush and cleaned out the sink properly. Morning routine pretty much in place already, just need to focus on doing some housework rather than MNetting wink. Also I'm plannign on catching up with this week's missions (DDs love matching up boxes to lids).

shouldbe Thu 13-Sep-07 09:08:54

Hello again

Better get on with it then....

shouldbe Thu 13-Sep-07 09:12:30

Costume is coming along nicely thanks Luda Dd and I chose some sparkly beads/sequins yesterday and stitched a few onto the 'petals' in the skirt Dh and I made the wings last night similar (ie-not as good as...) these dd will stick all sorts of sparkly things on them after school today.
I'll put some more pics on my profile if I can in a bit

blossomsmine Thu 13-Sep-07 10:24:42

Just popping in as i am at work!!
Might be wrong but is it your birthday today Jas??? If so, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! if not...sorrysmile
I haven't been properly flying all week, too much stupid work! But doing most of morning and evening routines. Because i had been flying before, the house is staying ok at the moment so i can see the flying does work! I just can't let it go much longer or will be back to the start again!

Have lovely days everyonesmile

grouchyoscar Thu 13-Sep-07 10:34:53

Morning ALL

Still taking it easy. I've started to organise packing andI've made lists so that's progress I suppose.

I've done loads this morning. It's amazing how things become second nature. It all comes together nicely. DH is amazed that I can sort myself, Ed, the bathroom,,DW,WM and breakfast in the time it takes him to watch sky sports news.

Hope you all have great days, thanks for the kind thoughts and comments while Boris has been about.

Hello
Happy Birthday Jas (did you get the card I sent?)

I went to collect ds from school and he was invited back to play with a friend so I've had an extra couple of hours to myself
Instead of using them to be productive, I've been for a look around a house that's on the market locally for £975,000 shock It's beautiful and I'm now going to save up till I can live there (will be many, many years...) grin

Then I went and got my eyebrows waxed again

And now I'm sitting with a cuppa having some MN time and watching Neighboursblush grin

mylastrolo Thu 13-Sep-07 14:02:17

shouldbe Thu 13-Sep-07 14:07:51

It would be about £700,000 under the asking price mylastrolo, so I doubt they'd be interested The family do want to sell to locals though [hopefull]

EHM I've had some great help and ideas from someone on MN thankfully. I showed a friend earlier and she said she'd be worried cos the costume looks so good it could've been bought from a shop shockgrin

ludaloo Thu 13-Sep-07 14:20:40

Happy Birthday Jas! smile
You sound like me with your table and chairs grin

Nice house shouldbe!! (it would only ever be mine in my dreams sad)

Well, been shopping, everything more or less ready for sat....aprt from the cakes...which I'll be making tomorrow.
Made a load of rice crispie cakes for DS to take to nursery tomorrow (its a kind of trend...to take cakes when its a birthday)

Right....must have a quick zoom round...take the castle back down (DS and DD2 are on it) and go and get DD1.
