Am back on the wagon smile
not letting anything get in the way.

morning routine done

just going to pack up some bits and go to Mums for the day she has a pool in the garden and it is going to be 30 degrees again today! Our paddling pool just didn't cut it this weekend.

HAVE to tackle the wardrobe and study problem this week.. Please nag me!!

Hope you have all had a good weekend.
TMH are you going to see the doctors today? I hope you are beginning to feel better.
Tort I am so pleased you went to the doctors.. better to get things sorted sooner rather than later.
BabyJJ - sad did you have any idea you were diabetic? What a shock for you!
Thanks Biglips

Hope everyone has a good day smile

babyjj - what a shock about the diabetics situation. My friend became diabetic about 10 yrs ago when she was in her 40's so it was a shock to her.

????can i ask a question????

What happen to the mission for next Monday? as it be back to the beginning as the same as july's?

TheMadHouse Mon 28-Jul-08 10:16:01

Morning all

No I am not going to the doctors - DS1 has come down with it too. He han not swallow verywell, so it is viral and nothing anyone can do.

So we are having a DVD day. It is really misty and the sea fret has made everything really damp and cold - so no outsid stuff today.

lucysmam Mon 28-Jul-08 10:35:55

good morning all!

hope everyone's had a fab weekend in the sunshine!!

mad enjoy your dvd day, hope you and ds are feeling well again soon

greyskull enjoy yourself in the sun at your mums

well, today i'm doing mission and babysteps and that's probably it until later as oh is laying new kitchen floor so cant get through there or into bathroom (thats downstairs) to do anything with them <crosses legs n waits impatiently to get for a pee>

am swapping toys around for lo too as im getting quite bored with the ones she has down here so she must be too although atm she's throwing a paddy because i wont let her play with my tumbley dryer which has taken up residence in my living room for the day!!

lucysmam Mon 28-Jul-08 10:38:02

oh, almost forgot, i'm going to phone insurance and shout at them again as well since still no fridgefreezer and the fridge part of mine is dying on me now too!!!!

anyone know how long it usually takes for stuff with insurance to get sorted??? (ive never claimed for anything before!) four weeks seems like a VERY long time to me when i have a dodgy cooker to use as well until they get their asses in gear!

scattyspice Mon 28-Jul-08 12:22:30

Back from the shops.

lucy hmm have never claimed off insurance either, but imagine it takes ages!

biglips the missons keep going repeating (though its supposed to be a different zone/wk) so if you don't get it done, don't worry as it'll come round aginlol.

TMH hmm where has the sun gone?

saga good luck with the detox (I should clean up my act too!).

Am off to wash up then tackle laundry before going swimming.


rowingboat Mon 28-Jul-08 13:12:18

evening ladies, hope you're all still loving the sunny weather like me grin

well, today i have achieved a big fat nothing. my kitchen has moved around which will make it easier to get old fridge freezer out and new one in but other than that after a lot of huffing and puffing it was decided (although not really in consultation with me who uses the kitchen most) that it was pointless laying new floor to scratch it taking the old fridge out!!!

so i played in paddling pool and on computer all day n made lots of cuppas (essential supervisory duty you know!!)

off to finish off my unproductive day with some very dodgy tv watchin for an hour or 5 now, ttfn xx

rowingboat Mon 28-Jul-08 22:40:18

Ooo, it sounds a bit sticky where a lot of you are. shock
We had a sea har (sp?) this morning and then this afternoon kind of hazy sun, so not too bad for doing stuff. Feeling much better now than earlier.

Lucysmam be careful you don't get the plan upside down. Perhaps order one of those portaloos they have on building sites for tomorrow? wink

Look for glasses indefinite - found them, Yay! Under the bed, silly old me!

make blackcurrant coulis 25 mins Made, bit tart though. [wince]
freeze other blackcurrants (top and tail first) 10 mins did it
other two hotspots 4 mins yep

focus on finishing DP's shorts fat chance

DP is doing dins [pleased face] yum

washing up after DP cooks [displeased face]not too bad about 15 mins whole kitchen

15 minute declutter top shelf of bookshelf (want to make a zen shelf - no idea how)
dust chest in bedroom 5 mins done
spot clean carpet in sitting room - 15 mins done
sweep kitchen floor and wipe - 10 mins done

TheMadHouse Mon 28-Jul-08 22:49:46

Evening lovleys

Rowingboat Well done - keep up the good work. We have had sea fret or harr all day. The patio, slide et all has been wet all day.

We are pants, I feel like pants - no flying.

DH is at wrok feeling pants, DS1 feeling pants. DS2 winding all us ill people up generally being an obnoxious 2 year old, who is pushing all the right buttons and testing out all his boundries. He bit me today. I told him we do not bite. He responded with "dont tell me those words, I dont want to here those words - mummy"

biglips Mon 28-Jul-08 22:53:15
