Morning all.

DH working today so I've arranged a park playdate. Need to make a picnic and put some washing on. House isnt too bad. Plan to work on zone this week and promise to do all missions

EustaciaVye Mon 25-Aug-08 07:56:24

Almost forgot it was a bank holiday as DH working. Have a nice day everyone.

I sorted through some bags of baby clothes yesterday so feeling pleased with myself.

Morning all

EV Thanks for the thread. DP started work at 4:30 this morning as well so feels like any other day except tv slightly different and less buses. Might meet my friend in the park as well, will phone her at a more resonable time smile
Plan for today is to sort out both bedrooms so mission included. I'll probably be back on later asking for help grin
Hope everyone has a good day

Morning smile

EV I'm soooo envy of your picnic in the park! It is raining here....again!

I forgot it was a bank holiday too. I don't know if my Dh is working or not.
I am going to carry on decluttering today. I managed to do the kids wardrobes last week and the kitchen yesterday. I might spend some time in the bathroom today and clear out the cabinets and the airing cupboard maybe.

Right off to have some brekkie smile

BiancaCastafiore Mon 25-Aug-08 08:12:32

Hi EV Have a good day today.

Hope everyone is enjoying the Bank Holiday weekend

We're just about to leave for the final day of the festival, it's been very busy and we're all pretty tired this morning. The kids are having a great time, esp as it's such a safe festival and we have such a large marquee they can wonder off and enjoy a certain amount of freedom without getting lost

Better go cos we should be leaving in the next few minutes.

BiancaCastafiore Mon 25-Aug-08 08:13:29

x posts, Hello Sahnna and Luda, have good days both of you

Drizzling here too

ludaloo Mon 25-Aug-08 08:22:30

Oh hi Bianca hope you have a good day smile It sounds great fun...especially for the kids smile

ludaloo Mon 25-Aug-08 08:25:46

I have just checked the mission...I will do that today as well. shannar hope you have a good time at the park too envy smile

Hello Ladies

I'm still in bed {grin] DH and Ed are playing scalextric in the office and it sounds like a herd of buffalo romping about hmm

Might get up, might not but my TO Do list is

Organise the front room
Vac and dust the beddroom
Sweep vac and mop downstairs
Sew in the name tapes to Ed's uniform

Suppose I should get my ass into gear really

isaidno Mon 25-Aug-08 08:55:42

Hello!
I really need to get (back) into this Flylady stuff.
I started ages ago and was on the original series of mn flylady threads; but my routines are all to pieces now.

Should I start baby steps again?

My living room is actually pretty tidy, so think I might concentrate on the zone so it's lovely.

Can't do anything yet though - got to get showered and dressed while baby sleeping!

lucysmam Mon 25-Aug-08 09:11:06

Is everyone enjoying the bank holiday weekend?

EV am quite jealous of your picnic, enjoy

We're off to see Peppa Pig at local retail park with PIL and can guarantee it'll be packed. LO is being allowed to walk as well since there's 4 grown ups going with her but am still nervous about it so have told everyone that someone has to have hold of reins we got specifically for busy places at ALL times

have been trying to change direct debit for energy company but they are closed today and there is no facility to do it online, I am going to have to sacrifice my organic veg delivery if we are going to stay warm this winter. Feel very guilty as the veg box lady is lovely.
dp made the pancakes this morning so I got to sit down for 5 mins yay. We are piggies in the bewilder house, it was supposed to be cereal this morning blush

cafebistro Mon 25-Aug-08 12:54:26

Hi everyone...
Havent managed to get much done this afternoon so far...my excuse is that dd is napping in bedroom and i dont want to disturb her so i cant tidy in there yet!
Another load of washing is in. I want to get to the bottom of the basket before MIL arrives tomorrow night and starts tutting.
Had dinner and cleared away....DS had 3 small spoons of scrambled egg, cheese and chopped tomato which is a miracle considering he usually lives off bread and bananas! Sorry I had to share that with someone...im so pleased I might actually be getting somewhere with him! smile
Think I'll do some ironing now......

isaidno Mon 25-Aug-08 13:53:33

I've done the shopping (from my meal plan!) and some ironing.
I now need to tidy kitchen up after lunch and put dishwasher on - and shine the sink!

tigger32 Mon 25-Aug-08 14:08:09

Hello everyone, well I'm gradually working my way through the baby steps and have just "put out" my 1st hot spot grin It's amazing what you can do in 2 minutes! I'm really getting into this fly business now and can't wait for dh to go back to work tomorrow so I can get my routine going!!
cafebistro your ds sounds like my ds1, its taken me almost a year of "this is your dinner if you don't eat it there's nothing else" but he is finally about there, still a bit fussy (i think thats just kids in general)

rowingboat Mon 25-Aug-08 14:27:15

Hi everyone*
*Eustacia
thank you for the thread. I remember I thought you started all of the threads to being with. grin Like a brown owl or something.
I hope you are enjoying your bank holidays.
I'm on annual leave so this is day one of my holiday. Yipppeeeeee!
Slept in and was verrry late for nursery this morning - the lady was very nice about it, and the LO insisted we went - didn't want to go with mummy.
Today is DP's birthday and I'm making his cake now using this all in one recipe www.deliaonline.com/cookery-school/how-to/how-to-make-all-in-one-sponge,13,AR.html
I'll let you know how it turns out - will add a little bit of coffee and cinnamon to jazz it up.
Cafe how old is your LO? Good going with the egg. Mine doesn't eat scrambled, but will happily eat an omelette or a boiled egg (needs help with scooping out though). They are funny things aren't they! smile
Bewider your home sounds like an American diner with all the pancake brekkies - sigh - takes me back.
Better get on with this cake or there's going to be trouble.
Have done hotspots and kitchen rescue.

EustaciaVye Mon 25-Aug-08 14:56:46

afternoon all, how's it going?

well we're just back from seeing Peppa Pig & not very impressed. There was a photographer advertised but didn't turn up so half of the people there didn't get pic's unless they used phones to take them. & the queue was so huge I don't think everyone will get seen before Peppa goes home tonight. All in all a waste of time but never mind, lo thought it was fab n it got us out for a bit!

off my list i did get dressed, brekky and wash pots before going out! not a lot really. did iron oh's jeans/t-shirt for a change instead of him doing it.

am just off to get paperwork out for tomorrow and then ebay snowsuits after that. After that, cuppa time n 5 mins on 'puter and then . . . MISSION god help me!!

isaidno Mon 25-Aug-08 17:16:44

I've done some dusting in the lounge, and finished the ironing.
And I've done a load of laundry too.

Grouchy Oscar - I am very impressed - you deserve more than a bath after all that!!

scattyspice Mon 25-Aug-08 19:01:55

Hi all.

Welcome (back) isaidno.

Have done minimal flying over BH weekend but did get windows washed (last done Xmas lol)and sorted out paperwork so feeling chuffed!

Will start properly tomorrow.

lucysmam Mon 25-Aug-08 19:06:37

evening smile

have just had tea, dahl with rice, and oh has just decided to tell me he doesn't like chick peas!! never told me in 3 years before now!! hmm

just about to ebay about 100 bibs we have from lo and work out this weeks budget again as I've no idea where my original is <scans humongous paperwork mountain on dining table>

grouchy did you enjoy your bath? I love bubbly baths!

isaidno I hate ironing, well done you!

Hope you've all had a good day doing what you've been doing. I forgot to mention I dragged oh into the kitchen shop at the outlet while pil took lo and am now trying to convince him that i need silicon baking stuff and Le Creuset pans which are very heavy but absolutely gorgeous! trouble is, I don't think he's convinced hmm
