Signed up to the links yesterday
Have head cold so feeling a bit rough.
Ruby - not sure if you saw my links to The Entertainer but some nice buggies there.
In midst of morning routine so back later.
Jas thansk for the thread.
EV hope your cold clears soon, plenty of Lemsip always works for me.
Need to get dc's dressed. Back later after school run.
Jas I'm liking your cakes a lot, can't believe I never saw Iggle on there
EV We all have colds here as well, hope yours clears up soon
Shannar good morning
Off to get brekky for the kids, bbl when all are fed & pots done
DS1 was up again!!!
But we are all going swimming, it might clear my head a bit.
Morning routine done.
Busy day again as I must put some of the larger baby things on e-bay, which is my lunchtime job.
Thanks EV - had not seen buggy links. Will have a nosey. Any family news update at your end?
My BIL has an interview today for a new job. He is firmly of belief that current job is causing health probs, so fingers crossed.
Have tons to do, so better get moving.
Hope everyone has a good day.
Done my morning routines and I've been digging out my tax info for the tax credit peeps. I'm off downtown for a potter now
Just thought I'd pop by and say howdy
grrrrrr @ rowdy kids breaking 'spensive toys
That's 2 in one week!!!!
Any more & they'll get four or five toys I pick out in the morning between them & the lid will stay firmly on the toy box
I have flapjacks in the oven, have s&s'd bathroom & kitchen. Just about to dust around the kids I think & hoover the stairs. After that . . . I don't know
Am on dynamic mission.
Have realised our expensive lovely wooden garden furniture will be outside all winter, whilst our garage is full of crap waiting to be rehomed/taken to charity shop.
Have binned some and making start on charity stuff.
I must get over the idea of needing 'stuff' to be secure.
However, have made last two school projects entirely out of junk from garage, so it seems to have uses and make me reluctant to bin.
No! Furnture too pricey to be outside.
AAArgh! Ruby's stream of consciousness is brought to you this morning, by desperate housewives r us!
Rubes Declutter that garage! Do your best FLY lady impression and it will be spacious enough for all that expensive lovely garden furniture
lucy's Grrrrrrrrr Kids eh!
Repair man came out last night....it appears the washing machine will cost nearly as much to repair as it cost us in the first place
DH has decided to dig into his overdraught a little deeper and buy me a new one. I'm delighted but also feeling very guilty...don't know why...probably because I have ranted about being washing machineless until he can't take it any longer!
He ordered a brand new Zanussi....has a bigger drum (6kg as a pose to our other one which was only 5kg) Comes with a 12 month warantee and will be delivered soon I hope. DH is going to sort out delivery dates today.
I am truly sick of the sight of the bloomin things! We now have a washing machine graveyard in our back garden!
Right, have been on the comp for far too long!!!
Have the kids all at home still....they are on the mend now though.
I think while they are all here they can help me tidy their room! <evil mother>
congrats on new wm.
I'd rather give up tv any day than a wm
Ruby I have to agree with Luda sort the guarage and get the furniture in - that is our job for the weekend.
Luda Yeh and nay to the washer - pants isnt it
Lucys Ask Js parents for something towards the toy
DS1 is at preschool.Swimming things are in the washer
Bedding in drying on the line
My bed has been changed
So I am going to be grabbing some lunch and then e-bay listing for me.
Think I'm getting a cold too - woke up with headache .
luda agree, wm essential.
buy bread and milk
Had a lovely morning! dp got up with ds this morning so i had a lie in till 9am ! havent had a lie in for ages and also realised that I havent had a night of unbroken sleep for 7 months, no wonder I'm tired all the time! DD still BF during the night but DS was sleeping through at this age but was on formula, maybe that makes a difference. Also DS was on solids at 4 months ( yes I know!) and loved them while DD doesnt seem to be bothered at all and some days only has BF's.
Anyway DP has taken DS to the park...at 9am and they're still not back!
So the gals have had a quiet time. Not much done, a bit of ironing, sorted d/w...thats about it.
I think I'll have a quick tidy round whilst watching the end of loose women.
RR Good luck with garage, dh did ours over a couple of weeks and it now looks fab!! (he makes me wipe my feet before I go in)
cafe they must be having fun at the park and re your lie in!
luda thanks rubbish about your w/m, still at least you will get a warrenty with your new one, so peace of mind for you.
mad and scatty sorry to hear you are not feeling well, hope you are both better soon!
lucys that lo seems to be alot of hassle for you
managed to get all my ironing done last night (until next load is dry)
Have been into town to get presents for a party at the weekend and my nanna.
Bought a xmas present!!
Dressing up clothes on buy one get one half price in woolies, so got one for party and one for dn1 for xmas
type up xmas gift list
whats for dinner (mum is feeding los so need to find something for 2)
Hope everyone is having a great day BBL
Have managed to clear my bedside table completely and all of the visible bits of DHs (he can do the drawer). Did dressing table yesterday and the clothes recently so apart from all of our CDs that is our main bedrooom sorted now. Might by some new CD storage over the weekend for the last bit.
Hey Ruby Hoarding rubbish does make you feel really secure doesn't in? There must be a pyschology paper on our inherient squirrellike tendancies.
Luda for the new WM
Been down town to sort some bank stuff out, get extra pack up stuff and trawl my fave shops (charity ones ) Very fruitful trawl as I got one of those lovely pine towel rails for the bedroom for £3 As DH chucks his 'not for washing' clothes on the bedroom chair that's another hotspot extinguished.
Suppose I better do something truly constructive with my last 45 mins
just cleared out the cat cupboard, have thrown away all his old toys and blankets etc, packed cat food up for my mum, all thats left is a cute hide and seek toy thing that we never got round to using (tigger was blind)its too good to throw away so anyone with a kitten is welcome to it!
Going sort through some photos and put one in a frame for ds1 room.
Sorry for ramble just felt a bit sad but need to let go now
Well I have thoroughly cleaned all the bits and added them on to e-bay - It always takes longer than I think it will
I have also washed the mats and put new ones out
Sorted Dinner for tonight - casarole
hung swimming things on line
Oh tigger, don't feel it is not OK to feel sad. Your poor tigger must have felt he had found heaven when he came to live with you.
Of coure you feel sad. Wallow for a bit longer. Not healthy to push sadness aside before you have 'worked' through it.
Tigger We have snowey (the brother to our cat - smudge) in a box under our bed. He died 2 days before we relocated back North and we had him cremated.
We still havent decided where to pop him yet, we wanted him to be with smudge.
EV Well done
Groucy I get no time to go to charity shops - not good with children in tow
Tigger it's awful thing to have to do. Hopefully another cat in need of a loving home will turn up for you
Made lunches for tomorrow
S&S the kitchen
Cleared out and tidied the ingredients cupboard
Just got to collect Ed now so byeeeeeeeeeeeeee
