Wednesday FLY(36 Posts)
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
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

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.
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.
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.
Wash up & shine sink
Put washing out
Stem clean kitchen.

i have finished my list!
shanara where do you get the carbon cleaner from i could do with something like that?
well off to take ds to school then visit my nan, back later....
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.
At finished list already! Dylsmum
Good luck with the cooker Shanna*
*TMH 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.
ahhh i can R-E-L-A-X now!! for the next 7 weeks....my due date is in 7 weeks too!!
welcome Rupert... happy flying
will report back l8ter x
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 that he couldnt wake up, but at least he hung out all the washing this morning and did all the morning fly routines.

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.
TORT what time is your appointment? I hope it goes well
TMH hope you rest whilst you have the house to yourself!
Shannaratiger - wow that oven cleaner sounds great 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
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.
Will go and scrub the cooker.. therapy ..
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*
*Jas can i come play in paddling pool please, cant be bothered blowing ours up!
Wardrobe looking good, other half less stressed now i've interpreted instructions from pictures to words but i'm not getting a lot done atm as up n downstairs like a yoyo.
lol@mission! there's a bedside table somewhere under all the little person's stuff, just not sure where so think i'll skip until tomorrow!
Greyskull I am so sorry for your loss - there ususally is a reason, but it doesnt stop the pain - are you activly trying?
greyskull i feel a tad insensitive now whingeing about lo, just re-read your post!! sorry
Greyskull. It must be very hard. for you.
House a tip here. Must do a 15 min stint now really.
no not trying, total surprise. DH wan't at all happy but over the weekend we talked lots and we felt it was going to be ok.
Don't worry Lucysmam, I didn't mean to whinge on
i meant me whingeing on about my lo, not u!!!! *confuddled>
Sorry to read your news Greyskull - must feel very sad. Do try to give yourself an easy time - I think it is important to grieve over things as they happen, rather than store up sadness. Not that anyone gets over, more that they can let a little bit go and manage with the rest.
Mad - you sound in great form, but also take it cautiously - would be easy to feel fab and do too much then put back your recover. Day on sun lounger sounds perfect!
Have done v little today but socialise so am in good mood. House is unruly, but hey, we have 6 weeks to chill and have new, relaxed routines.
bbl (no doubt!)
welcome Rupert - I used to love you as a child
Ruby Thanks for the card, very tame indeedy. I feel great. I have had a couple of hours nap and a bit swollen.
I will be taking the boys for a haircut tomorrow and we are minding my friends two, as she has an inquest to go too - really short notice (only found out today)
