Morning EHM and EV

Hope you both have a good day planned?

I have to work today Feeling like staying under the duvet, really tired.

But, this evening dd and I have our long awaited treat; we're going to watch the HSM stage show grin Ds is very disappointed that he's not coming so we might all go for a pizza before the show then at least ds has a little treat with us before he heads home with dh.

I did this mission yesterday It's refreshing to be able to say that for a change!

Better go and pack everyone's lunches.
Back later x

RupertTheBear Wed 27-Aug-08 08:10:40

Morning all

I am only just up - the dc's gave us a lie in for a change. How I am ever going to get back into getting up at 6 next week I don't know.
Bianca - I did todays mission yesterday as well - am feeling very smug! Enjoy HSM - I have watched the film about 100 times with dd.
Morning EV and EHM

lucysmam Wed 27-Aug-08 08:14:32

Morning EHM, EV, Bianca & EVERYONE ELSE

How is everyone this morning? I'm still waking up and still feel dodgy but am determined to do more than wander around virtual asda today!

Bianca I don't blame you feeling like staying in bed, me too!

EV shock at dd1 still in bed, wish mine would stay in bed past 7am! she's taken to getting up early again

cafebistro my family are Irish, never get back over there to see any of them though & they won't come over here for some reason. Oh and me are planning on surprising some of them with a visit later in the year if we can afford it (if mil will have lo for a long weekend)

Right, I'm off to formulate some sort of plan for today since there's loads I want to get done, have a good day all, bbl with a list smile

biglips Wed 27-Aug-08 08:24:28

morning all!

Starting to get up early today as ive got 2 weeks to start waking up an hour earlier and not 8am. Yesterday it was 9.30am blush but was up half of the night of heartburn.

Today taking DD to a softplay area this morning ..best to go early before a pile of kids comes in as its only a small softplay area and hopefully my friend is coming this afternoon.

BBL smile

(its very dark outside atm)

Morning All

Just popping by. Was sidetracked by a new deep fryer yesterday and a trip to Wilkinson's (Found Ed some handwriting help books!)

Got to get a wriggle on as I'm taking him to see the steam train into Leeds station. It goes to Scarborough and we can't afford the trip but the drivers and firemen are lovely and let Ed have a good nosey at things

Minkus Wed 27-Aug-08 09:52:11

Hello everyone

I posted a few weeks ago to say that I was restarting baby steps as I'd fallen off the wagon completely, what with having my then-5 week old ds2 as well as ds1 to contend with! Happy to report that a) ds's are both doing well- ds2 now 8 weeks and a right little chubster with his 2 hourly feeds round the clock <<yawn>> and b) reading this thread gives me the encouragement I needed and I'm back on track again (if I was ever on it properly in the first place.) So thanks ladies! Really appreciate the folks starting the thread in the morning and posting Kellys Missions etc, even though I don't post I'm reading and it has made a big difference. My downstairs is completely decluttered with the exception of the small understairs cupboard, and considering the dining room had about 7 hotspots itself let alone the living room, hall, kitchen cloakroom and conservatory I don't think I've done too badly! Started tackling the master bedroom yesterday and actually enjoyed sorting through my clothes/cosmetics (huge cupboard full of both)

Here's to the lovely FLYlady!

scattyspice Wed 27-Aug-08 10:21:58

Hi all.
So far I've done:
morn routine
changed kids beds
loaded wm
washed up
done 4 puzzles with DCs
set up dolls house
read 2 pages of Tanya Byron book from library (really must do something about DDs sleep problems!!)
etc.

To do
laundry
sew more name tapes
mission
teach Ds to read before he goes back to school nxt week hmm.
Friend coming for lunch with DS's friend smile.

TMH I forgot you said you were camping at Hadrians wall, I don't know that campsite but i agree its a lovely area for walking with children. Sounds like a busy day today for you!

minkus You sound quite on top of things, I found the first year with 2 DCs the hardest (physically, mentally and emotionally) thing I've ever done! But I have such fond memories too.

Right DS wants help with his Megazord!

ludaloo Wed 27-Aug-08 10:30:37

Hi everyone smile

lucysmam just to let you know I posted a parcel off to you yesterday so you should get that soon. smile

Minkus awww I remember two hourly feeds (tired of it at the time but I do look back with fondness.....8 weeks awww makes me remember those little snuffly noises they make as they are feeding)
Well done to you on the decluttering smile

Right my DD1 is pestering me for the computer (club penguin again!)

smile

lucysmam Wed 27-Aug-08 11:30:40

morning again everyone smile

luda parcel arrived this morning thank-you. They're lovely clothes! I'll post yours 1st thing Friday. . . .hate waiting for payday!

Minkus 2 hourly feeds not fun at the time but it's so lovely looking back at them & remembering smile

scatty, megazord? what's one of them then?

right, my list for toady which I will not rest until I complete is as follows
~pots
~bake
~dry washing
~check ebay
~make fishcakes for tonight's tea
~thorough tidy upstairs
~play with lo although she's happily stacking stacking cups on her own atm
~put washing basket back together
~find wheels for baby walker we're meant to be passing on to oh's cousin
~declutter kitchen cupboard
~declutter my wardrobe
~oh to paint back hallway

so I'm off to continue although not sure where to start and really ought to think about getting sewing machine out sometime this week since I've borrowed mil's to make curtains and not even thought about them yet! ttfn xx

ludaloo Wed 27-Aug-08 12:15:47

Cor blimey, that was quick! I shall never moan about the postal service again grin(although I should think so too really as I was cueing in the post office for nearly half an hour hmm)
Glad they are ok smile

I was wondering what a Megazord was too. Is it a Transformer?

My washing machine is yet again making a very fishy stink [yuk] I'm told it is probably something like the fuse getting hot and making the plastic casing hot...which makes the smell. It only actually does it if I put it on a hotter wash. Doesn't happen on a 40 degree wash, but then I can't get DH's work clothes even vaguely clean on just a 40!

lucysmam Wed 27-Aug-08 12:30:22

lol, I always have a good moan about postal service! we have the s-l-o-w-e-s-t postie in the land I'm sure!

I think it may be a transformer, although I'm not sure. Maybe I ought to re-watch the film tonight to find out grin

I've got more washing to sort too, just can't be bothered to do it, and it's going to pee it down so will have to td again sad

I'm just in the middle of fish cakes for tea but for some unknown reason they're a bit sloppy, so going to make a cuppa and ponder what to do to fix them

ludaloo Wed 27-Aug-08 13:06:43

Will flour fix them?

I think Megatron was a transformer....not so sure about megazord, but they do loads of different transformers don't they, like dinosaurs and stuff.

It is raining here too...suprise suprise! I'm told it will brighten up next week hmm that's fairly typical....just as the kids go back to school!

lucysmam Wed 27-Aug-08 13:26:39

maybe megazord was the bad guy? there's hundreds of them yeah, knowing my luck, my Lucy will be wanting them since she's not a very girlie girl!

Hope it does brighten up! My oh starts his new job next week so will mean peace and quiet for me and Lo to go to the park and play

oh and I don't know about the flour idea, they're sat in the fridge on a tea towel at the mo and someone on 'Food' suggested flour, egg, breadcrumbs may hold them together better so may try that too!

TheMadHouse Wed 27-Aug-08 14:27:17

Afternoon ladies

Part one of the trips sorted.

Car is going to cost an arm and a leg sad, money we dont have sad sad, so failed MOT and we are trying to find somewhere to do the work cheaper. But we got Tax online last night, so at least we are OK

EustaciaVye Wed 27-Aug-08 14:34:28

Managed one of my living room hotspots

scattyspice Wed 27-Aug-08 15:31:37

tMH Sympathies for the car. Cars are such a drain on financies aren't they?

LOL a Megazord is a power ranger thing (but like Transformers, it comes apart and bits get lost etc!)

Had a lovely time with friend and Ds's friend. Except went to park and DS climbed over the top of the monkey bars (was showing off I suspect)then git really frightened when he realised how high up he was and SCREAMED! He was terrified poor lad, I had to climb up and rescue him! Then he got cross with himself for being scared and tried to do something else too quickly and fell off! All scrapes and bruises. sad

Washing done.
Need to iron.

Hello All

Feel blush as DH is clearing the kitchen table hotspot but I did get home only 45 mins ago.

Been out with Ed all day we have

Been on the footplate of a steam train in full steam
Stumbled across a Surestart play day outside the town hall. Ed got a certificate and a medal
Did a bit of shopping. Ed wanted to get a present for his childminder's baby who was born this morning (awwwwh)
Visited the childminder. I was cuddling a baby of 12 hrs old and Ed managed to buy him his 1st teddy blush smile

So it's been a l-o-n-g day but a great deal of nice things with it.
