Morning all


Choose your own babysteps

DS1 has wet he bed, so I have stripped, remade it and carried him back, as he was taking up all my space. DH was and still is dead to the world. I have put all the bedding in the wash and will hang it in the real morning grin

I am waiting the 10 mins then I can have some more painkillers. I am sore, but not too bad, just find it easier to get to sleep if it doesnt hurt so much when I move.

We put up a baby gazebo and a paddling pool, so the boys can have fun in the sun today and I can relax on the sun lounger.

Catch you later sleepyheads

dylsmum I keep falling off and jumping back on sending an encouraging push grin

Not much FLYing yesterday DD had an end of term family farm day yesterday. Went well DS was still feeling abit under the weather thouhg but he did enjoy some of it. DD last day today, only seems like yesterday I was waddling in 9 months pregnant for her first day. sad
Finally used the carbon remover; 3 mins to paint on, leave over night wipe off with a scourer, 3 years worth of burnt on grime cleaned off in 5 minutes. shock grin
Doing the oven shelves and saucepans next. Am going to steam clean the rest of the oven so it's as clean as the glass.

RupertTheBear Wed 23-Jul-08 08:26:38

Hello - can I join in? I am new to MN, but have been FLYing for a while. I don't FLY properly, because I work a long day Mon-Wed and then have two children to put to bed, dinner to cook etc so tend to leave my house completely (luckily it doesn't get into too much of a state as we are out all day!) until Thurs when I try to fit in all the week's missions. I am off for 6 weeks now (am a teacher) so am going to have a go at proper FLYing.
My house isn't too bad but with two little ones it can get in a state really quickly.

Jas Wed 23-Jul-08 08:44:18


Welcome Rupertsmile

envy At finished list already! Dylsmum

Good luck with the cooker Shanna*

I hope you are having a quiet day today. I have a longstandin back problem which I can ignore most days, but can't sleep though the pain so I know what you mean. It is still very early post op for you, but you seem to be making a good recovery.

I'm off to work in a bit with all three dc in tow (only 1.5 hrs at a friends house) then we will be playing at home.DP came home with a huge paddling pool/swimming pool last night. It fills the garden! We cleaned and filled it up yesterday andif it is nice I will be outside supervising all day today. I need to hoover and sweep first to reduce the dust/bits on the kids feet going in and out of the water.

biglips Wed 23-Jul-08 08:57:55

Morning again all

Didnt get too much sleep last night. DS1 is not right, but can not put my fingure on it at all. Have calpoled him up again.

Both biys have gone to work with their daddy, so I am having some peace. It is hard with LOs they just want to cuddle and dont understand.

I have done a general tidy round.

DH is feeling sad that he couldnt wake up, but at least he hung out all the washing this morning and did all the morning fly routines.

Welcome to Rupert I used to love him as a child my favoriate TV character. We are a friendly bunch and I am sure you will slot right in.

Shanna Talk cabon cleaner please

Tort Let us know how the doctors goes

Jas I can manage without pain killers during the day and am fine once I am off to sleep it is just getting comphy and off.

Dyls well done with the list

Biglips 7 weeks will fly by

Hi all. Welcome rupert.

I am at work today (a one off) and Mum is at home with DCs. She's staying until tomorrow. She's great with the kids but they get totally hyper when she's here!

Not likely to get much done today. Will start again tomorrow.

bythepowerofgreyskull Wed 23-Jul-08 13:27:39

Afternoon ladies,
welcome Rupert.
TORT what time is your appointment? I hope it goes well smile
TMH hope you rest whilst you have the house to yourself!
Shannaratiger - wow that oven cleaner sounds great envy I wish our oven was clean.
Lucysmam, I often wonder how 2 small children can have so much stuff.. and in comparison to other children our don't seem to have as much as most where does it all come from??
Hello Sirstinkysocks, don't think we've met before smile
Jas hope you have fun in the paddlingpool
and Hi to anyone I've missed.
Not had a bad day Fly wise but emotionally things are a bit shit.. yesterday I was secretly 5 weeks pregnant today.. I'm not..
feel quite sad but I know all the reasons nature takes its course etc but doesn't stop it hurting. sad
Will go and scrub the cooker.. therapy ..

lucysmam Wed 23-Jul-08 14:15:55

greyskull i know exactly what you mean!! we were quite lucky my dad got us loads of stuff from someone in ages 0 to 5 years so havent had to buy much in the way of clothes or toys as yet but she still has sooo much its unreal!!

Have just read thread . . . mad glad it's not toooo painful but i agree with greyskull, enjoy having house to yourself and chill. <waves hello> hello Rupert*

lucysmam Wed 23-Jul-08 14:18:12

TheMadHouse Wed 23-Jul-08 15:25:44
