Kelly's mission

EustaciaVye Wed 06-Aug-08 07:29:59

Morning all.

DD2 up at 5am today.

So I'm a bit grumpy.

Will try and go through the mission later.

BiancaCastafiore Wed 06-Aug-08 07:42:32

Morning EV
5am is Too Early to be waking up, hope you have a restful day ahead.

Have fun with the metal detector Tort

I am tired too, I'm just not sleeping properly atm, and the bloody chickens next door are not helping.

I have to confess to having completly fallen off the FLY wagon and only seem to come on here to see how everyone is theses days (and I'm even pretty terrible at that!blush)

We are heading out to a friends house for a coffee morning this morning. I have no idea what the afternoon will bring but I can't manage another day of cabin fever so we'll try to eitehr get out and about (swimming maybe..) or recruit some friends to play

Morning all
EV thanks for the thread, 5am is a nightmare isn't it, try and have a 10min power nap later.
Bianca FLYing is definately faltering here as well, summer holidays really don't help. will get back on track in september.
Tort hope you manage to find the keys, that's teh sort of thing I would do.

DD is complaing of a sore throat this morning, hopefully it won't progress to anything worse, we have my nephews 2nd birthday party on saturday.

Don't know how much flying will get done today. DD is complaing at being ignoredd BBL.

TheMadHouse Wed 06-Aug-08 09:11:24

Morning

I have to gree it is much harder in the summer holidays.

We are off swimming this morning Bianca. I hate the faff, but the children love it

EV Much sympathy, DS2 was up early too and we plonked him in our bed

Waves to Shanna

Not sure what we have planned if anything after swmming. I might get the large roll of paper out and draw round DS1 and let him make a person

I need to Iron though at some point. I am really tired, I think the op is catching me up and my mum is not for helping at the moment - she is having a real winge about her arthristus - you know no one is allowed to e ill but her hmm. I am not responsible for my mothers happiness

EustaciaVye Wed 06-Aug-08 09:13:54

Kitchen now sparkling. Going out in a bit. DDs going in creche at leisure centre while my friend and I have a cuppa blush. Did it last week for the first time and was nice

TMH - ignore your mum, however if she is sapping your energy tell her to go away until she can cheer up grin

Morning EV Bianca Tiger TMH and All who follow.

DH is back at work today. Hope he's OK about it all as he mentioned he is well prepared to walk as he's fed up with the place (hmm Good move, get a required sense of indignity at the start of an economic downturn)

and My done list is

Make the bed
hang some washing out

And...That's it Ed has just done my brekkie blush

Well as we were out yesterday there was little to do in the house. Plus we are winding down to the holiday so we are keeping the house cleaner than usual. My mission for today is Start the packing

It won't jump in the cases on it's own will it?

lucysmam Wed 06-Aug-08 10:49:19

If you fancy staying in a self catering 2 room budget holiday flat on the East Yorks coast hop on.

It's cheap and cheerful and just a place to stay really

lucysmam Wed 06-Aug-08 11:19:44

cheap and cheerful sounds just the ticket!!

if you don't mind me being nosey, where is it and how much ish has it cost you? We're trying (and failing) to save up to go somewhere!

grouchyoscar Wed 06-Aug-08 11:23:53

It's Scarborough, just below the castle. The flat has cost £300 for the week which I don't think is too bad for a family of 3 peak season. It's the 3rd time we've stayed there.

I'll send the website if you want

lucysmam Wed 06-Aug-08 11:25:37

oooh, yeah!! i like scarborough!! any seaside really. cheers grouchy smile

grouchyoscar Wed 06-Aug-08 11:32:07

here is the yellow house

grouchyoscar Wed 06-Aug-08 11:39:21

So now you all know to avoid Scarborough next week as the Family Grouchy will be in attendance!

It's a great little place. It's central, the market is good so we buy groceries when we get there. Make pack ups in the morning and troop off to the beach or where ever.

I've packed books on wildflower spotting, bird identification, rockpooling, magnifying glasses and binoculars.

lucysmam Wed 06-Aug-08 11:46:22

thanks very much, will have a proper look when i'm back from town with rest of bits for kitchen. looks like it'd be ideal though since we cant really afford to go abroad atm

rowingboat Wed 06-Aug-08 12:30:54

Hi everyone,
I'm at work today - booo! But it's quite quiet, so not so bad.
Grouchy I tried that opening the cases and letting all the clothes jump in. It seemed to be going really well, except when we arrived at our destination, we didn't seem to have any clothes to wear. Hmm! grin
Lucys tell me about it, so expensive. Both DP and my passports have expired and we need one for the LO, so that's practically the cost of a holiday all by itself. shock
TMH Did your DH manage to rally the in-laws at all? If I lived near you I would come round and do a 5 minute room rescue for you. Enjoy the swim - and all those lovely soggy towels when you get home.smile
Tort hope your keys turn up soon.
I lost my glasses in the wind a few months ago and they turned up a day later, underneath my car's rear tyre - good job I didn't reverse out of the space the day before.shock

Morning
put away dry washing - almost done
hang up wet washing on clothes dryer done
dressed/makeup done

Home time
lay three tiles (yes that's about all I can manage at a time.)
hotpots
S&S bathroom
washing up
laundry on

TheMadHouse Wed 06-Aug-08 13:10:58

littlemissloopy Wed 06-Aug-08 13:23:25

Hi all smile

I'm not feeling too great today, very sore throat and headache sad
Just been to town to pay a few bills and stuff.

House is a tip again, have to remedy that shortly.

Bianca just wondering if you received our pressie for your DS, just I sent it last Friday and wondered if it had reached you yet? smile

Right have to go eat another strepsil and tidy up a bit.

bythepowerofgreyskull Wed 06-Aug-08 14:16:51

grouchyoscar Wed 06-Aug-08 14:19:47

Greyskull Got any tips on interesting things to do in the area?

TMH Sounds good to me matey

rowingboat Wed 06-Aug-08 14:20:49

TMH grr at your inlaws! And ouch about your tummy being kicked. Enjoy your cuppa! grin
Loopy Poor you! I am just coming out of the cold now, but the sore throat ugh! I took ibuprofen at night (couldn't find any in the box, so in desparation took some infant nurofen suspension - it was ghastly - groo!)
Tort I looked at the bless your heart bit of Flylady, but I think you need to buy the book to do it. Have now printed the couch to 5K thing so will put that on the fridge and aim for Friday as start day. Cough cough!

BiancaCastafiore Wed 06-Aug-08 14:26:56

Just calling in between coffee (which turned into lunch..) at a friends and going to the park

Loopy parcel arrived today, a huge hit, thank you very much I want to send something for your dd2 but haven't been to the shops yet so it'll be very late (sorry)

TheMadHouse Wed 06-Aug-08 14:43:49

Afternoon all

I HAVE DONE THE IRONING, not put it away yet, but I am so pleased

It is difficult for them not to kick me when I am holding them.

Still to do

Put the ironing away
Make pizza
Mission

God it is so humid - awful

lucysmam Wed 06-Aug-08 15:12:03

afternoon ladies, i have total peace again as oh and lo have now gone for a wander in town and i dont know what to do!!! so thought i'd play on here with a cuppa for 5 and then do a load of washing and straighten up a bit.

rowingboat I agree about the cost of passports, you probably could get a holiday for what you pay for them!

mad i feel for you, i HATE ironing anything at all!!!

Loopy hope you're feeling well again soon

Right, off to tidy in utter blissful silence!!!
