Morning ladies

Brain is addled. Was up till 3am with a sickly DS2 and then again from 5.45. DS1 is now also awake. I am going to ring the GP as soon as they open sad

God I am tired, but DW is on (I forgot last night)
Washer is on (again)
Another load of bedding is waiting to go on
DS2 is tucked up watching cbeebies in my bed

I have rung my mum to tell her I will not be able to take her to the hospital this morning.

Back with missions

Morning all.

TMH - hope DS starts to improve soon.
Tort - Happy Birthday to your DS.

I have a harvest festival to go to this morning, then a playdate after school.

Ruby - how are you feeling today? I imagine the shopping high has worn off. If you'd like a project then DD2 will be 2 in December. We're not having a 'party' but we'd like a really special day for her. She loves Peppa and is getting Peppa toys for her birthday. Can you help me plan the day? grin

Wipe kitchen surfaces
Take chicken out to defrost
2 min hotspot- kitchen table
Take dry clthes out of t/d, fold and away
Change dd and ds beds
Make up spare bed
Empty kitchen bins
Bag clothes for charity
Make biscuits with DS- Anyone know a nice receipe? We bought some lovely cookie cutters from Tesco and want to try them out!

Today and tomorrow before MIL arrives I also need to-

Lounge- Dust, purge mags, Declutter fireplace and hoover.
Bathroom- Declutter, Clean sink, toilet and bath. Mop floor. polish mirror.
DS Room- Declutter chest, dust, hoover, polish mirror.
Spare room- Dust, hoover and polish mirror.
Main bedroom- Declutter chest, declutter DD's cupboard, dust, hoover.
Ensuite- Clean shower, sink and toilet. Mop floor. Polish mirror.

cafebistro Fri 10-Oct-08 08:31:54

EHM Have a very annoying MIL actually but unfortunately we live in Ireland and she's in England so when she comes over she comes for a while, its usually 2 weeks shock.
We have to tell her this time that we dont want her for xmas this year, we're expecting fireworks sad

lucysmam Fri 10-Oct-08 09:08:19

Morning All smile

Very good night's sleep here for a change . . . half five last night to just now!!! About bloody time. I didn't get much of a lie in though. J's mum tried dropping him off here again, I ignored the very loud for half 7 in the morning hammering on the door though.

Jas no they didn't. So no more favours. They can struggle to find someone to have him & see if they can get away with not paying a proper CM. Bit of a shame really as my lo enjoys having him here but obviously they can't be that bothered about having him looked after or they wouldn't take the pee like they have.
Mad I hope the Dr cn do something to help your ds
tigger good morning smile
cafebistro I'm so glad my MIL doesn't fuss about anything other than the lo
tortoise Happy birthday to your ds, hope he has a fab day

Just saying hello, bbl after we decide whether we're off out or not xx

Hello all. Not sure if anyone will remember me, haven't been on for ages and ages. Have fallen off the Fly wagon and my house is driving me mad. Need to get back on board and do some baby steps. Do I just start with sink shining again or should I try to pick up where I left off with routines and missions? Help me wise Flyers grin.

tortoise Fri 10-Oct-08 11:39:44

Hello IC. smile
I think you need to start baby steps again. But i'm not sure!
I have yet to complete doing baby steps. I am useless. grin

Have sorted washing. Next job will be to put it away.

Does anyone want 2-3 fleece sleepsuits? Pics in profile(In a mo!). All Free for postage.
