TMH Very impressive list there!

Lucys have a good day with all 3 kids smile

GO don't overdo it today smile

Well I'm just about to start on the house.
DS is at home with me today he is still poorly sad
He woke up this morning with a stomach ache, he was as pale as a sheet and his eyes were all completely blood shot sad poor little thing, he doesn't do being ill very well, he always suffers more than anyone else!
He's an excellent patient though, lies still and takes his medicine and loves a nice cuddle every now and then. He's watching "Over The Hedge" ATM.

I'm still borrowing the neighbours washing idea when ours will be fixed/replaced!

Hi all - gentle babystepping goin on here - day 18. Just getting to the point where i feel all itchy if I even consider going to bed without cleaning the sink first - so something must be sinking in! (pardon the pun grin)

Have no more washing, after the morning load to put on, as for the first time in months I am bang up to date smile

Just finished the mission and couldn't beleive how much junk it was possible to fit into my toiletry/cosmetic drawers - everything from curtain rail clips, IPod charger, an old phone, tablets, pens and children's socks! blush

Feels good though. Thank you again for helping me find this, it's really working for me grin grin

tortoise Mon 22-Sep-08 11:47:39

Thanks Tigger. I think maybe i should call my supplier and check the pre-pay card will still work. I don't want to be without gas!

TheMadHouse Mon 22-Sep-08 12:07:11

Hmm. I have just been totally shamed by my boys in the local co-op. I popped in after playgroup to get some t-bags on offer and we went down the home bit, to check out boot polish and they both started sqirting the washing up liquid.

I wanted the groud to swallow me up. I ended up paying for two ampty bottles of expensive washing up liquid.

tortoise Mon 22-Sep-08 12:10:43

Oh dear TMH. (Sorry had to laugh a little although not funny for you) I would have wanted the ground to swallow me up too.

Wasted my whole morning phoning around to sort out gas supplier, now have to pick DD2 up from school and i haven't got anything done.angry Apart from hanging bedding out!

tigger32 Mon 22-Sep-08 12:14:35

Am very excited I've just booked my London Eye tickets smile
Just got to find smoewhere to eat now

TMH Sorry I had a little chuckle too!

scattyspice Mon 22-Sep-08 12:23:36
