Have done not enough here this morning considering have been up and on MN since 5:45 blush
Up and dressed
Beds made
W/M on
DS bottle
DD & my breakfast

Yesterday DC's didn't get dressed till after lunch, will have to do better today grin
Hopefully it will stay dry today so I can at least get out for a walk. Wish I could take DD to playschool, she's feeling better and is soo bored.
Have just looked and I think they have all crusted over, she is going grin grin

Sorry sent rather than previewed, excitment at the thought of getting out, toddler group today yes.
kitty is that moonsand any good? We're trying to get ideas for dc's birthday rather than 1 week before.

DC's are demanding attention, had better turn computer off.

Morning all smile

Wallpapering almost done.....I stripped the paper all off and prepped the walls, DH hung the paper. I can't belive how long it has taken! We didn't go to bed until nearly 2am and we still have one end of the room to do!

My tooth (or lack of)is still aching sad I have just had to shuffle over the shop to buy more pain killers (not a pretty sight!)

DD2 has Parvovirus/Slapped Cheek....she looks horrendous!
The other two are hyper due to the complete topsy turvy house!

Well I am off to get brekkie smile

Shanna We ventured out this week, all our spots have crusted.

Lots on for us today:

Shopping with Mum this Am
Back for lunch
DS1 to preschool
DS2 short nap
DS1s Preschool concert
Drop boys at friends
Me to Hospital to see plastic surgeon
Home to Dinner
Boys bath
Boys Pjs
Boys Bed

Along with all that I also:

Need to complain to Tesco re order
Hot spots x3

Anyhow, the wiggles are sinding signed posters for the boys - yipee
My back is sore again, DS1s chest condition is bad again, so lack of sleep is getting to me and him - he gets naughty.

Later flyladies

Thanks Ruby

Poor DD Loopyloo.

TMH - how cool is that! Getting signed posters. I know not as good as seeing them but very impressed they responded so quicky. Can I be really cheeky? If they look good enough to copy would you be able to send me a copy of one ? Quality doesnt have to be great but DD2 is besotted at the moment. If not dont worry as I can always download a pic. Bless, she keeps finding the DVD and bringing it to me to put in the machine.

TheMadHouse Thu 10-Jul-08 08:30:49

I have a hangover

Bloody pta meeting ended up in the pub after


I suspect I may well put off todays hoovering

I am going to die lie on the sofa with a blanket and heat magazine

Shannaratiger Thu 10-Jul-08 10:58:26

DD's spots hadn't all crusted over, managed 15mins at toddler grp. blush sad
Hopefully DS will go down for a nap when 'night garden' hsa finished. I need to re sort my kitchen cupboards because I can't find anything and it all keeps falling out when I do locate what I want.

SCSS envy at Lazytown live. DD would hate it though, doesn't like things in the wrong place, i.e. live rather than on TV.
TMH glad about the signed Wiggles posters.
LML hope the tooth stops hurting and DD2's slap cheek clears up soon.
Hello to EV, tort, EHM and everyone else.

Have a good morning

Shannaratiger Thu 10-Jul-08 11:07:28

X-post DD & DS have gone for a nap. I might have a quick 15min power nap and then super speed FLYing with no dc's 'helping'. grin grin

tortoise Thu 10-Jul-08 11:38:51

Sorted out DD1 and DD2's toy boxes and chucked some bits out. Including DD1's ripped magazines that she likes to keep! grin Hope she doesn't see them before recycling goes tomorrow.
Not getting much done as usual but a bit is better than none!

TheMadHouse Thu 10-Jul-08 11:44:41

Ruby the @ goes before the tiscalli bit. It is sticky on my keyboard - bloffy children.

We are back from shopping and I am going to sort lunch and then will be mad here.

At least DH has just rung to say he should be able to make it for the preschool concert (he had a uncancallable client meeting)

grouchyoscar Thu 10-Jul-08 12:17:15

Just popping by to say HELLO ALL Hugs to poorlies and all that stuff.

I'm off to a gig tonight so I am under instructions to take it steady today. DH got up with Ed this morning so I have done very little (which is nice)

Ed has to tidy his room, Lego and knex EVERYWHERE so that will be a tea time battle of wills hmm Hope the new chest of drawers will be of use (£2.50 from a charity shop, yay)

rowingboat Thu 10-Jul-08 12:30:08

Jas am laughing at your 'pick your own babystep. grin
I think I am on day 12, but haven't actually managed to do day 11 yet.
This babystep thing is a good way to learn, but actually putting into place the babysteps and trying to do what you did before is quite difficult. At this point I feel as if doing babysteps is actually giving me more work instead of less.
Hopefully, soon there will be babysteps to help me organise the other stuff I am doing in a not Fly lady way. shock

Has anyone been on those Flylady forums?

Notquitegrownup Thu 10-Jul-08 12:43:09

Good morning all. I'm hanging onto my babysteps by my fingernails. Not getting a lot done at the moment, with end of term itis and so much on at school. I'm going to lurk here until the end of the summer holidays, and try to keep on doing a bit a day. Hmmmmmmm
