Morning all*

*Bewilder
hope ds feels better soon and you managed to sleep x
Ludaloo grin Great to have you back to normal!

I am up packing lunches as we are off to work at a festival every day from today till Tuesday. Thankfully it's local enough for us to commute so we haven't had to buy tents etc to camp. Still, it a lot of work...today is set up day - we open at 5pm then long shifts all weekend and take down again on Tues. (they always call packing up a "break down" at these events - we even got a note round once which said "Help everyone enjoy their break down, be considerate to other stall holders grin"
Fingers crossed for good weather and lots of customers

Hope you all have a good day x

Jas Fri 22-Aug-08 07:54:54

sad Bewilder. I hope you manage some sleep at some point today.

TMH - Have a lovely hol...do you leave today?

Ludaloo - grin Good to have you back to normalgrin

We leave at 4am tomorrow, so I have a bit more packing, sandwich making and last minute cleaning to do, plus lunch with a friend to break up the monotony.

EustaciaVye Fri 22-Aug-08 09:43:39

Morning all. Broadband has been out which is why I've been awol.

Havent read previous threads so hope eveyone is ok. Managed to tidy house a bit with no computer to distract me blush and kids have been happier with my full attention blush blush

Have friends coming over this morning but hope to give upstairs a good clear out this afternoon.

All baby stuff (cot, moses basket, bath, bedding etc) is going this weekend. A teeny bit sad but it will be good to clear the space.

tigger32 Fri 22-Aug-08 10:04:56

morning, thanks everyone for your tips.
I started baby steps yesterday afternoon and spent a good hour and half scrubbing and polishing the sink, it looked fab! However within half an hour of finishing I felt the stars of a migrane sad I was in bed 20 mins later. I was up at 6am this morning with my boys and felt so bad (migrane still) that I did very little and have only just got dressed blush can't believe I've failed on day 2!!! I'm now picking myself up though and am going to have a quick tidy.

tigger32 Fri 22-Aug-08 10:06:07

** should be start not stars **

lucysmam Fri 22-Aug-08 10:14:17

good morning smile

I'm feeling all refreshed for a change, lo slept ALL night without waking which is a rarity at the mo!

Bewilder sorry to hear about ds's tonsilitis, hope he's feeling better soon smile

Bianca what sort of festival is it?
Jas have fun packing
Mad have a good time
Ruby I have lazy pottering around days when I feel like that & things seem to get done

EV think about all the space you'll have for more toys!!!!! grin

well my job for today is wash and td all our baby clothes/bedding etc as we've decided to try and sell it all to make space for some more crap toys at xmas otherwise our lo will be getting clothes and nothing else. MIL bringing the suitcase from hers for me to sort tomorrow. I am being a bit sentimental though and taking out some of the tiny tiny 3lb baby stuff and am keeping most of the unisex stuff for the next one.

Just how much to sell it for?? anyone any ideas? there's easy 15 bin liners full from tiny baby to 18mo

other than that beds are made, brekky had, all washed & dressed. pots draining ready to be put away. oh papering back hall and i'm going to see what else we have to sell in between wm loads.

right, off to load wm, check on oh and put kettle on, have a good day all, ttfn xx

lucysmam Fri 22-Aug-08 10:14:54

Bianca hope the festival goes well smile

tigger sad I suffer from migraines too...its horrid, you have my complete sympathy sad
Hope it doesn't last too long.

Lucy I'll check my mail in a mo...thanks smile

Shannaratiger Fri 22-Aug-08 12:12:46

I was about to wake ds up and meet my friends for a picnic in the park when men arrived to brick up outside, plaster over inside and possibly fit a nwe radiator. It's nice to have instant hotwater though so can't complain.

tigger hope your migrane clears up soon. You are much more important than FLYing so take care of yourself.
scatty agree about the holidays goign quick.
I was goign to try and be a good mum and take them out loads and visit people, but I just get too nervous and stressed and end up just going to the park, the kids love it but I just feel guilty all the time.
TMH enjoy the dry weather.

EV I've been getting rid of DS's baby clothes as I go along but he's going into a big bed tomorrow ( if dp manages to build it) so the cots going to the dump and the big buggies going to somewhere. sad

lucy glad you got a good nights sleep adn are feeling better. 15 bin liners shock
sag enjoy your easy day, hope the floor
Hello luda, grouchy and anyone else that follows.
I'm off to make a round of tea's.
BBL

sagacious Fri 22-Aug-08 12:19:12

am mn'ing from downstairs and directing troops (they are attacking the marblerun)

shanna Don't feel guilty .. they're having fun.. If feeling brave (babysteps.. grinwhy not arrange to meet people at the park?

Need food (was v good and didn't have the pain au chocolat .. dc's devoured them so I had fruit [halo]

lucysmam Fri 22-Aug-08 12:22:24

hey Shannar, why not try and sell cot for a few quid? or take to a charity shop rather than skip?

& yup, 15 bin liners easily, maybe more, just don't know what to ask for them. thought maybe £25 for a bursting at the seams bag or £200 for the lot but would that be unreasonable do you think?

well the wm has been on twice but it looks like rain n i still haven't a clue where clothes airer is so looks like i will be td-ing!

My lo and me have just been for a wander over to the co-op and she's now refusing to get out of her buggy! she's sat in front of cbeebies atm with a biccy which makes me sound like a terrible mammy but its easier than dealing with the tantrum if i make her get out

off to clean bathroom via the kitchen to put kettle on in a min and then find out a fleece blanket to cut and use for nappy liners (ta for the idea Jas )

Shannaratiger Fri 22-Aug-08 12:31:22

lucy I would sell the cot but the drop down side is broken.
LOL at lo staying in the buggy I've done the same thing before with ds not wanting to get out of the high chair.

EustaciaVye Fri 22-Aug-08 12:42:27

Shannara - put it on freecycle. Someone might collect it and save you a trip.
My kids would love going to the park all the time. Dont feel guilty.

I have had play doh out this morning <<feints>>, and paints <<feints again>>

DD1 has been a star and completely tidied up after friends left. Now they are both having a nice lunch in front of tv

RubyRioja Fri 22-Aug-08 13:04:29

New Om calendar arrived, so september starts today grin
Have written presentation for interview - jus tneed to practise now!

Any public speaking tips?

lucysmam Fri 22-Aug-08 13:21:06

Ruby imagine everyone naked?? grin usually only good if there are fit blokes though!! lotsa practice in front of mirror, write notes or highlight important bits instead of reding whole thing from page

EV I love play d'oh, sit and play with it with lo often. we use a big plastic table cloth on floor so it doesn't get everywhere & only a few colours out at a time too so she can't make too much mess (or i can't)

Shannar pop it on freecycle and say side is broken. someone may be able to fix and get some use out of it, i would have loved to afford a drop-sided cot when lo was tiny but thankfully someone gave us a lovely little rocking crib. which we're now selling on although am quite gutted about selling it all, its not realistic to keep it here sad

well i made cuppas with cold water as i forgot to boil kettle!!! yuk! and now have a very tidy kitchen and bathroom although i'm sure it won't last. My lo has ventured out of buggy and is now putting raincover over Upsy Daisy and packing her bag to go on it so we have peace for now. And mil is coming up for a bit so will play with lo while i supervise oh in back hall for a bit and get some more stuff out to wash. think i may make hot cuppas though before i do anything else & see if my lo wants something to eat although i don't think she's all that bothered atm

EustaciaVye Fri 22-Aug-08 13:48:24

DD1 such a star. She has just helped me tidy and dust her bedroom, my bedroom and our spare room. I changed DD1s bedding and gave the bathrooms a once over too so only room left upstairs to do is DD2s and she's asleep in it. Need to run hoover everywhere but will do that when they are in the bath tonight.
