Morning Shanna and thanks for the links

I have an organised mum calender and pocket diary and love them to bits. I actually use them and write everything in it and even DH has taken to adding if he is going to be late in, car for a service etc.

Well it has been a long night waking DS2 every three hours (I had to set my alarm and it took ages to get back off), but he is OK, apart from a sore head and I am going to give him some calpol if he asks again. I expect we will bouth be a bit groucy by the end of the day.

Jas I understand the broody thing, one of my close friends is expecting in Jan (If I hadnt m/c last year we would have had a jan 2008 baby) and I am so happy for her but also a little melancoly too - espeically as we are giving them all our baby stuff so smile and envy at the same time.

It is my Godfathers funeral on Tuesday, so have arrange for a friend to have the boys and to take DS1 to and from Preschool. MIL would have had them, but wouldnt have done the prescholl hmm - she likes an easy life.

We are off to Aldi this Am and then to collect some special cross stiches from the framers - my mums best friend has done a sampler for the boys and my neice and they are so cool. I will take pictures of them and post. We have bought her a special dragon broach in return.

Morning
Thanks for the thread Shanna
Poor ds TMH, hope he's feeling brighter soon x The samplers sound lovely, a friend did one for dd when she was a baby and I love it

Pretty awful start to the day here. After one day back at school dd is back to being moody, rude and stressed I lost my temper with her at breakfast time (why will she not eat??!) and then all sorts of stresses came pouring out of her about school, her friends etc etc Her friends all (according to dd) have Clarks shoes with the toys in, dd doesn't cos I couldn't afford them . she is the odd one out and not allowed in their club

Got drenched in the rain going to and from school

I need to get on top of the housework today so will make a cuppa and do a list to get my brain in gear. Back soon.

Morning Tiger and TMH (hows DS's bumps? Ouch sad)

I have done my morning routines and I'm sorting out the 4-5 clothes for various FLYers. There's a lot so I'd be pleased with any more takers btw.

I feel at a bit of a loose end. Ed at school and I have nothing constructive to do really hmm I am having to search for jobs that need doing.

I suppose I could

Sort out the cupboards in the bedroom
Put clean washing away
Sort out the ironing

It's not that the house is perfect...There is stuff to do but...I can't be bothered. Any Ideas

BiancaCastafiore Thu 04-Sep-08 09:57:40

My list for the day:

~s&s kitchen
~tidy living room
~dust living room
~mission in hallway
~hoover downstairs
~s&s cloakroom
~clear stairs
~strip kids beds and wash bedding
~quick tidy in kids rooms
~tidy master bedroom
~clean bathroom
~put clean washing away
~ironing? If there's enough to make it worth while..
~return to clearing cupboards if there's time

BiancaCastafiore Thu 04-Sep-08 09:59:22

If you'd like to email me with a list of what you have I may been interested in some clothes Grouchy..it often depends on the make/style if ds will still fit in size 4-5. Thanks

grouchyoscar Thu 04-Sep-08 10:17:43

Bianca - It's mostly shirts and tops George and Cherokee. There's some Next stuff too

I find George a bit small on the sizing for Ed But Cherokee and next are pretty generous

BiancaCastafiore Thu 04-Sep-08 10:21:55

Thanks Grouchy Next are usually OK, don't have a Cherokee anywhere near here so I have no idea about their sizes. Ds mostly needs long sleve tops and trousers.

Hi all
two dds back to school today - went prety smoothly. DD3 had home visit which went well, so all exciting there!

House is tidy and quiet. Very strange. Have been doing puzzles with dd and plan to bin any with nmissing pieces at end of day. How's that for decluttering?

Hope you get a quiet night tonight Mad. Glad Ds is OK,

grouchyoscar Thu 04-Sep-08 11:29:45

Bianca, your poor DD sad angry I was always the kid who didn't have the right clothes etc. I was really bullied, it was awful. I hate those YO! Toy shoes anyway but it doesn't work if you're under 1o and the girls have turned their backs does it?

BiancaCastafiore Thu 04-Sep-08 11:33:24

Dd loved the shoe we'd chosen for school but I was so sad to hear she was the odd one out (I doubt everyone has the shoes really but if it feels that way to her then that's really ) I have ened up saying we'll aim to get her some winter boots from Clarks but am angry taht I should need to!

It's taken me this long to sort through the piles of washing! I'm going to do some picking up and putting away in every room now before getting teh hoover out.

Good to see you Dyls

BiancaCastafiore Thu 04-Sep-08 11:34:20

Obviously we chose her a pair of shoes, not just one shoe! blushgrin

grouchyoscar Thu 04-Sep-08 11:45:54

Bianca I feel like an extension of the washer most days so sympathies to you

RubyRioja Thu 04-Sep-08 11:46:38

Oh Bianca - girls are horrid sometimes. In case any help, dd2 and I made some club membership cards for her 'secret club' with clipart and fancy fonts. I also laminated them as had few id card thingies left. She plans to set up her own club. I am sure she would make your dd a 'disrance member' or maybe your dd could do something similar.

I hate those shoes, but I am sure it will be something lese next week.

cleared a space on the bedroom floor and hoovered it
tidied and hoovered the hallway

i'm a bit unsure about shoes with toys in them- i wonder how much they could put distratc a child like my ds- it doesnt take much. so when they first came out and he asked the lady in the shop if they had any and was told his feet are too big i was very releived! grin

EHM Thu 04-Sep-08 12:46:00

bianca big hugs for you & dd. hope things improve at school.sad
TMH sorry that ds is poorly & to read about your godfathersad

scattyspice Thu 04-Sep-08 12:47:06

Hi all.

TMH poor you and Ds its one thing after another eh?

shanna I have the calander and pocket diary. Really useful.

Bianca I had a difficult morning too (started well then meltdown when time to switch off TV and get coat on!)I think the stress of going back to school is getting to them. DS goes on about those shoes too. (Why do they make such things!!) I'm sure all the kids will have lost/broke their pesky toys by 1/2 term.

DS did not go into school well (lots of tears sad). Have decided to try and ban TV before school as he seems to get so wound up.

Apart from that DD went to bed easily again last night and Ds got up and dressed straight away and ate breakfast (who are these children?)

To Do:
Feed kids
Take DS swimming
drop off books and wellies at friends
Nursery form
Shop list.

* hi Dyl, welcome back*

Jas Thu 04-Sep-08 12:47:20

Hellosmile
We've been for our first speech therapy appy, and been discharged, when the therapist ran out of paper to write down everything ds saidblushgrin

I'm avoiding Clarkes for shoes unless forced at the moment due to lack of money, too.sad for your dd though B, I remember feeling that way because I had clarkes shoes when I was her age.

Scatty - I banned tv before school last year, with a big improvement as a resul.

Shanna - I did have an OM calendar, but didn't use the stickers at all, and this year bought a cheaper version which I actually prefer.
