Morning peeps smile

So far I have had a full packed time since the kids broke up. We have been to the beach, to the river (twice) to a carnival, for 3 walks, paddling pool mania, a BBQ and 2 sleep overs!
So you would think that just for one day they would cut me some slack and play nicely at home with each other and their toys while I try and sort the house out.....but no! so far this morning we have had 3 arguements, 2 lots of tears, 1 bored and whingy DS and a peed off mum!

On the plus side, we have finally chosen and ordered the new sofa smile due to arrive withing the next 10 days all going well.
Also have 3 wall pictures (well actually they are patchwork type fabric things....DH chose them....wasn't that keen myself, but I have to say, they are very pretty so I expect they will grow on me)to hang that arrived yesterday and the microwave brackets to fit, which also arrived yesterday.

Today however is house tidy day I think, washing is piling up, and the carpets haven't been hoovered since gawd knows when!!

biglips have fun, my DD1 would love that, we are hopefully going out on Friday to something similar.

Our electricity goes off all day Friday while they do repairs or something so need to get out the house if possible.

EV That's a great list, I might follow along with some of that if you don't mind smile

scatty hope the fog has cleared, it is sunny/overcast on and off here, but still really hot and muggy.

littlemissloopy Tue 29-Jul-08 10:30:47

I agree Katie This weather is just brilliant for line drying....saves sooooo much electicity and faff!

littlemissloopy Tue 29-Jul-08 10:35:19

Back from the shops.

loopy I sympathise, sometimes it seems the more you entertain them, the less they are able to entertain themselves angry. Well done for organising such good activities though. Turn up the music and ignore them smile.

my house is looking nice and clean and i just have the ironing to do...but can get that done whilst i watch something on the tv tonight!

still havent managed to do my assignment, will definitley get it done tomorrow, went and got books but data on my old computor and that means going to someone elses house to get it... should have just kept the two computors like i said in the first place.angry

afternoon all
must apologise for my drunken nonsense last night. blush

So have had a productive day.
cleared out the study everything now either filed/recycled/binned/put in it's rightful place.

Washing done
kitchen cleaned
sitting room not done cos the boys are in there playing.

Have also had a mini breakthough with DS1's behaviour.
inspiration yesterday so now the rules are
you get a toy taken away for each thing I count as unasseptable behaviour (supernanny speak)
you get a raffle ticket for each thing I think is lovely/ good behaviour
at the end of the week he can buy back 1 toy for 1 raffle ticket
if there are spare raffle tickets he can cash them in for a treat.

It was amazing yesterday.
He loved getting the raffle tickets
and when he scrunched his face up about to have a paddy I reminded him I would have to take a toy away and he immediately unscrunched his face and carried on being lovely shock
long may it last

I'm worried about DH, he's not getting any better and he is dreading going back to work. He's talking about just walking away from it. I feel it is a stress related illness that has been building up for the past few years.

lucysmam Tue 29-Jul-08 19:24:21

hello all, have had a lovely day out with oh n no lo. just doing pasta salad for tea then bath n watch a film in bed and ready for sorting everything tomorrow!

hope you've all had a good day as i have n will catch up mission n babystep tomorrow xx

EustaciaVye Tue 29-Jul-08 20:08:11

GO - sounds hard with DH. What does he feel about his being ill at the moment?

DD1 has spent half an hour tifying upstairs She got herself out of the bath, cleared away all of the bath toys and even hung her towel up. She insisted on doing everything herself so not sure how well her teeth were done, but then she tidied her entire bedroom! To be fair she is quite like me and has lots of storage so it isnt a difficult job wink and then she's gone to bed without any grumbles. DH away so this does make things easier. I got to tidy my room while she did hers too so 3 rooms tidied completely in 20 mins!!!!

Don't understand this thread: what about people who have jobs to go to as well as a house to clean?!
