EHM Thanks for the thread - when are you back up in my neck of the woods? How is Ellie at Playgroup?

Shanna and Tort Lovley pictures - long may it last


We are up and dressed, porridge is cooling

I am off to Godfathers funeral this morning, so dropping boys at friends and then off to collect mum and do the sad stuff.

Freind is dropping DS1 at preschool, I am hoping to be back in time to collect him

I am sorting dinner as we speak - saus cassarole in the slow cooker.

I am hoping to live out of the freezer for the month - found loads of chicken breasts. Will need to buy, bread, milk, butter and veg though.

MORNING ALL smile How is everyone?

I'm just finishing up this morning's stuff before off to town to see a debt help man <nervous emoticon here> It's not that bad, just a bit hard with little money coming in to keep on top of everything. But he was fab when I met him the other week so am hoping he can help me sort everything out . . . fingers crossed!

will be back with a list when we get in this afternoon .. . & to read whole thread propery

Hi all
I have the worst PMS and might start crying in a minute then get really cross for no good reason. grin
TMH I hope the funeral goes OK. You have reminded me to buy some sausages - what kind do you use?
It's buying the milk and stuff that makes you go astray I find, I go in for milk and come out with milk AND lollipops, cereal, a pizza etc etc... shock
Greyskull are you doing any fitness stuff, or planning to? It was power walking wasn't it?
EHM thank you for the thread. Are you very busy ATM?
Eustacia poor old DD, hope she is feeling better soon.
Jas I couldn't get that link to work yesterday, it kept opening the monday fly thread. So I'm going to do a search for the tin. We are walking to town after I pick up the LO so will see if we can find anything.

Does anyone want something from the town?
Tigger very impressed with your list.
Shannara can you do my windows, that's my least favourite thing! How do you clean yours? I use water and a squeegee and it goes everywhere. Our windows get a lot of dust because there is a lot of building going on next to our flat.

Done so far
LO to nursery
half done kitchen
washing hung

to do
wash up 10 mins
kitchen 5 mins
bathroom s&S 5 mins
dust sitting room 5 mins
Dinner planned 5 mins
get lo

Sorry i posted twice blush

minorbird Tue 09-Sep-08 10:27:38

Good morning! smile

Todays gone a bit tits up for me. We overlay, so dd has gone to playschool eating a cookie for breakfast and looking like shes been dragged through a hedge backwards. blush But at least my sinks clean! grin

Got to have a whip around, do the mission, was meant to be going on a run but the weather is ghastly, will hopefully do this when DH returns from work. I also have to do some work, have a treatment to write. But am feeling a bit demotivated today, could do with a rocket up my bum or perhaps just a red bull...

Shannaratiger Tue 09-Sep-08 10:38:15

Hello again

School walk just about done in the dry, went in happily again grin
rowing I use Sainsbury's anti-mist window cleaner, and window cleaner for the outside. smilePMS is a nightmare, if men got it they would have found a cure ages ago.
EV hope DD2 feels better soon.
Hi tigger32 greyskull*
hope the funeral goes ok.
lucysmam hop ethe debt man gives you some helpful advice. Pass it on if so, please.
cafe good luck keeping DS entertained.
minorbird sending a rocket, well done on the sink.
cupboard doors and tops wiped.
Shined sink
Played with playdough with DS, first played with it yesterday with DD. Kept them quiet and not argueing for a suprisingly long time.

DS is now having a nap so to do:
Thigh trainer
Ironing shock

BBL when have completed the above.

rowingboat Tue 09-Sep-08 10:52:58

Shannara I like the sound of the anti mist cleaner, think I'll look out for that one. It's the outsides that get really bad. Can't wait until they finish the flat opposite, however, there is another warehouse conversion due to start next to us in the next 12 months, so it's just endless.
Minor sounds like your DD's ideal day really then, not having to have hair brushed or yucky sensible mummy food. grinI usually give the LO branflakes or fruit and fibre and he eats half before nursery and the other half when he gets in (in about 5 seconds). My mum brought round some frosties left from our holiday so he had them this morning - gone! Couldn't believe the speed. Munch! Back to branflakes tomorrow though. grin

Have now done washing up and kitchen including floor
have to do bathroom now then get LO again.
Can't really get going today, so a walk is probably the antidote.

rowingboat Tue 09-Sep-08 10:55:06

Hi Cafe [waves] How about finger painting today? [hides]Or on second thoughts, perhaps not. shock
Can you just put on wellies and go out any way. I decided at the beginning of the year, that if I didn't go out when it was raining, I would become housebound. grin

tigger32 Tue 09-Sep-08 11:02:22

Hello again,
shannara Just took a peek at your dd in school uniform, she looks really excited bless her
EV hope your DD is feeling better soon, maybe she'll have sleep and let you have some time to get on or sit down ?
TMH Hope the funeral goes well for you
LM Good luck with debt help, hope you can get something sorted, you'll feel like a weight has been lifted off if you do smile
RB sad at your pms I suffered last week and realy struggled to get motivated, much better now though. (Chocolate usually helps)
Cafe hope you have fun entertainig your ds today
MB Lol at your lo eating a cookie on the way to school, I bet loads of parents have done that wink
I've completed most of my list, just got to do a stack of ironing
lunch for ds
ds1 to school (and collect again)

EustaciaVye Tue 09-Sep-08 11:06:42

DD2 has been sleeping since we got back from the school run so my kitchen is now clutter-free and clean.

grouchyoscar Tue 09-Sep-08 11:23:56


Had to cancel the shed as it's just too big for the space. I measured it but...DH took great pleasure in informing me I'm sh*te at estimating/measuring He is such a patrician when he wants to be.

I'll get something smaller tomorrow at B&Q or something

Very sad

The fitters are here in the rain, poor lads. I am going to B&Q and IKEA tomorrow to get the stuff I need

Took the cat to the vet, she was so good and I felt awful leaving her. She's 15 and has an unidentifiable hard lump behing her ear. And I never spotted it

Just potterring today now and hoping my shed is cancelled

minorbird Tue 09-Sep-08 11:29:24

Thanks for the rocket shannara should just get me back to playschool for LO. That is a great idea rowingboat next time I'm late, I could give LO a small box of cereal to munch on the way and milk in a feeder! Not that I'm going to be late again! tigger thank you, I don't feel as guilty now, I'm thinking at least it wasn't a greggs sausage roll! grin

This thread and you fly ladies are giving me so much inspiration! I would otherwise just be engrossed in other peoples lives on active convos and not thinking about my own! smile

grouchyoscar Tue 09-Sep-08 11:39:54

Window cleaning. I mist with a spray of white vinegar and lemon juice and wipe it off. I also polish with crumpled newspaper. It works a treat

cafebistro Tue 09-Sep-08 12:28:25

Good Afternoon!!smile

Have done most of my ironing shock just a couple of DP's work shirts to do later and that's it! I havent had no ironing since before DC's were bornblush. Although once the washing if just taken out of w/m is dry I'll have another lot! Neverending...

Havent done much else on my afternoon list....made lunch for DS and DD but have yet to have any myself. Think I'll make myself a quick sandwich and watch loose women while DD is napping and DS is jigsawing (again!).

*Rowing boat* think I will do the finger painting later....feel a bit guilty at DS being stuck in.

Also have to...

Clear up kitchen from lunch
Dry laundry
Clean b/room

Ta Ta for now....

Shannaratiger Tue 09-Sep-08 12:35:20

Back from school walk. Managed to do the list so am going to play with the dc's this afternoon.
Have a good afternoon.

scattyspice Tue 09-Sep-08 12:39:44
