I was out doing the shoppinggrin

Just having breakfast nowblush

We have a street BBQ planned for today. I really hope the huge rainstorm this morning was the last of it!

Have a lovely dy TMH Hope it stays dry for you, too.

Lucysmam - No mission today. Weekends are family and rest time!smile

oooooh, didnt get as far as that anyways jas, just got back from market shopping in town and nana's. Only spent about £20 altogether and got loads of fruit n veg and invested in a book to write all my recipes in as in my attempt to save money and cook healthily ive been spending quite a bit of time in the kitchen so thought i'd organise the drawer of stuff we have in there and get my act together before new floor goes down next wekend and we get new cooker and freezer

Hope all had a good day, off to skip now xx

RubyRioja Sat 19-Jul-08 17:07:01

Hi all
Been to Lahnden today. Saw all the trendy types and felt parochial grinDid not lose any of the dds or spend loads of money, so all in all a good day.

Have new pair of croccy flip flop things, but dd1 broke hers whilst we were in shop in the hope of getting some new ones. Must have taken real brute force, so not very happy with her at £25 per pop.

TheMadHouse Sat 19-Jul-08 18:11:17

Oh Ruby I really miss Lanhdon loads. I miss looking in Bultler and Wilson and my Royal Blend Tea from Fortnums - sigh

Jas Hope it stayed dry for the BBQ

Lucysmam Hope the shopping went OK

We are back and had a lovley day, weather stayed fine, we had lunch in Harrogate and I got the boys a reduced top each in monsoon.

The music day was fab, DS2 was great at the african drumming, they took a picture of him doing the Sanba stuff. They were really well behaved and seem to enjoy everything, even the flowers and plants. Oh and they had fun in the play area of course.

I am just sorting out Pizza for their Tea, a little late, but it is the weekend.

BiancaCastafiore Sat 19-Jul-08 18:17:27

I have been at work all day I find missing family time on Saturdays more and more hard work but we need to small amount of spending money work brings me so I have to continue for now. t's actually been a good day, I was v productive and all the customers were friendly, all in all a good day

Your days out sound fun TMH and Ruby
Hope the BBQ is dry Jas

We had a lazy evening planned but I have just been invited out to a friends house this evening..not sure whether to go or not though - I am completely exhausted!

RubyRioja Sat 19-Jul-08 18:19:26

Can you have a nice bath and go out all refreshed Bianca - sounds like you deserve it and will have fun when you get there

BiancaCastafiore Sat 19-Jul-08 18:38:16

I might do Ruby, or I might just snuggle on the sofa with dh instead
Dd is currently s l o w l y eating her supper (pasta and pesto plus veg) she's been eating an average sized plateful for 1 1/4 hours shockhmm!
I'm finding it very frustrating so I'll see how frazzled I feel after bedtime!

RubyRioja Sat 19-Jul-08 18:53:49

frazzled is exactly the word isn't it?
Mine are running wild and I am ignoring htemgrin

BiancaCastafiore Sat 19-Jul-08 18:55:50

I'm just about managing to grin @frazzled but could just as easily cry!
I really have hit a wall of tiredness this evening.

EustaciaVye Sat 19-Jul-08 19:16:27

Hi everyone.

Pack them all to bed and go and watch Casualty or some similar drivel (one of my faves though grin)

TheMadHouse Sat 19-Jul-08 19:46:41

Oh I couldnt face an evening out espeically if I was frazzeled.

DSs are upstairs not sleeping. I am angry at them spoiling a good day.

But, I am just going to ring EHM and srt out tomorrow smile

rowingboat Sat 19-Jul-08 19:48:35

Hi everyone!
Bianca me too! Got home after queueing for petrol for ages and now should really be getting the LO ready for bed, but I'm on the puter. [rolls eyes at self]

We have a BBQ tomorrow, so have to bake a pie. No dinner yet, it's all gone wrong. Might have an early night in about ten minutes.
On the plus side have pinched the calendar out of the kitchen and put it on the wall next to me, and written appointments on it. [Very pleased face.]

lucysmam Sat 19-Jul-08 20:03:06

Mad shopping was great thanks, lovely day out with oh and lo and we hardly spent anything but got loads of fresh veggies n salad n stuff so well chuffed with it!!

sounds like all have had a pretty good day, apart from kiddies being monkeys for a change hmm

off to finish tea time pots and chill with my pile of paper recipes putting them in my shiny new likkle book [hmm@me being sooo organised]

BiancaCastafiore Sat 19-Jul-08 20:07:55

I have said no to evening out and am ready to watch Casulty and then have a decadent deep hot bath and a good nights sleep grin

tortoise Sat 19-Jul-08 22:45:42

Hello.
Haven't managed to do much today. Had a gall stones attack this morning.Haven't had one for ages.
Then after tea Dad popped round with some bits for us. He will be back round tomorrow. smile DC were soooo excited to see him.

Just before he left i started to feel the pain again. Had an attack again after he left. Took 2 pethidine tablets. Feeling very woozy now and also feel very sick. sad Hope it is just from taking the tablets.

Think i will get to bed now. Need to tidy a bit before Dad comes tomorrow.

TMH glad you had a nice day in Harrogate.
Jas hope the street BQ went well, sounds like a really nice idea.
Ruby envy at new flip flops, I brought 2 pairs at beginning of summer. Can't walk in traditional ones, and other pair teh back keeps slipping down. They both look nice thouhg. Next summer am going for comfort.smile
Bianca hope you had a relaxing evening an are feeling les frazzled this morning.
tort hope no more gall stone attacks, sounds really nasty. Have a good day today with your Dad.

DS has just woken up so will have to go and sort out a bottle and calamine lotion. His chicken pox are scabbing over nicely so hopefully will be ok for tuesday, did shopping online yesterday though so no Tesco's today grin grin

rowingboat Sun 20-Jul-08 09:39:50

Tortoise I hope you are feeling better today, that sounded very painful.
Didn't really do much flying yesterday, well a little bit, but not all.
Today we are off to a Barbee, so not going to be doing much Flying at all this weekend.
Hope everyone has a sunny day today.
I forgot to set the washing machine last night and it is all still there, unwashed, this morning, so just put that on. DOH!

Jas Sun 20-Jul-08 09:47:45

Morning allsmile

I hope you had a nice quiet evening Bianca*

*Tort
- I hope you are ok today.

The BBQ was great. All the neighbours and a few extras came, and there was loads of food for everyone. I didn't make the kids come in at all. DS came in with dp at 8 and fell asleep on the sofa before he was even changed, dd2 gave up at 10, but dd1 was still going at midnight, when I came inshock She has only just woken up.

I did all the shopping and bought normal flip flops for megrin £1.25 in the sale. They may not be stylish, but I've been wearing 2 yr old one up til now, so a change was needed.

Minimal FLYing today. I ned to go and collectmy washing basket (put into use as a rubbish bin last night) and lass recycling box, plus whatever other bits are lying around still, and dp is supposed to be putting concrete in the big hole outside in the back yardhmm

grouchyoscar Sun 20-Jul-08 10:56:57

<<snoops in by the outdoor>> Hello folks

Can I still play? I've been so busy this is the 1st time I've been near the laptop in 4 days.

On Wednesday I went to the salvager place and bought a set of solid pine drawers. Then I got home and moved 2 sets of drawers around to make space for the new ones. Thing is when you move large furniture round the bedroom the dust is attrocious and embarrassing.shock

Thursday I went to see DGM and DGF. DGF is out of hospital and looks so much better. It was great to see them. Then home and more furniture humping about.

Friday was Ed's 5th birthday grin He got tons of stuff, board games, books, lego, a 3/4 guitar, a Woody and Buzz. Basically he got too much but he loved everything. Then his last day at school, rugby training and his birthday tea at the local italian.

Yesterday DF and his day came to visit, more pressies and good family time.

I've found space for most of his stuff so storage isn't an issue. I'm shattered and more people are coming today!

So have I missed anything? Can I still come FLYing with you?

RubyRioja Sun 20-Jul-08 11:03:09

yay GO - sounds like a lovley day

Poor Tort - pethidineshock are you very spacy?

Mad - are you ready for tomorrow? Do you go in early? Is it definite or subject to availability? I thnk you are so cool and wise to go for this and will be thinking about you. Get well cards are a bit tame, but better than nothing!

Any good recipes for banana bread or cake?
