Morning ruby
Bit sleepy here

DH got in at 12.00 last night and said meeting was "very heavy" and we need to talk...I asked him (jokingly) if I needed my passport, he said I don't but he does.

Whoop de doo

He left for work at 5.30am so will have to wait till this evening for a proper talk.

I HATE not knowing whats going on

Anyway enough of my whinging, am having tea and then have to wake up dd (ds already up and playing chess!)

Hello to all.

Good luck with the interview grouchy. smile

I won't do individual messages for all but will try to ease myself back into the thread and regulars if I can. It's difficult when I can only snatch time on MN as I don't want my au pair to know I use the site. Good to see you all anyway! smile

Jas Thu 16-Oct-08 08:20:43

I'm thinking alot of you atm, Simply...didn't you send me the red boots for ds? They now fit him!grin Thanks again.

sagacious Thu 16-Oct-08 08:26:21

Hello simply !!!


Simply Thu 16-Oct-08 08:58:17

Hi Jas. No, the red boots weren't from me I don't think. My memory is dreadful but I can't remember ds in red boots. Another MNer will probably be along in a mo to say it was them, hopefully and then we'll both know who it was!

Your dh's meeting sounds intriguing sagacious. I wish I knew the background! I could look back through previous threads but we've got a house guest coming today for a few nights and I've stripped the beds so I'd better get the house sorted first and save it for my coffee breaks!

lucysmam Thu 16-Oct-08 08:59:58

Good morning!

grouchy good luck with the interview, sounds like a great job grin
scatty hope the car's not too expensive!

I'm not impressed, lo up since random o'clock last night again, then J's dad dropped . . . wait for it . . . . £60 shock through my letter box at 7am for a month of having their kid!! Not happy. & oh has to ring about his wages again this morning.

Were meant to be having a day off today as lo is at MIL's but not looking like much point atm, need that £60 for shoes for the lo and odd shopping bits.

Anyways, I will bbl with a list if we're not going out. TTFN xx

sagacious Thu 16-Oct-08 09:10:58

Right am setting timer to stun for 15 mins and am going to sort out kitchen !

lucy £60 for a month!! shock

lucysmam Thu 16-Oct-08 09:20:01

saga, you're here a lot this morning!!

Yeah £60 for the month . . . just wait til I see um! Am tempted to stroll up to the school at drop off time & find out why that's all they have given me! I said no to doing it for one of my best mates for that little so why should I do it for my oh's mates!? angry

Jas Thu 16-Oct-08 09:39:57


Maybe the shoes were from Bianca then.....blush I've had them ages but they definitely came from FLYer.

I'm going to toddler group in 20 mins, and the morning stuff isn't done. I'll get as much as I can done, and report back at lunch time...

tigger32 Thu 16-Oct-08 09:42:09

Hello all and good luck Grouchy!!

Going well so far this morning but need to RR the lounge as it looks as if someone has held the toybox upside down and spun round in circles, scattering toys far and wide.

Have already been to the shops and even beat some of the local oldies into the butchers shock They have offers on mince and pork at the moment so have stocked the frezer for a couple of weeks.

Meeting a friend at the park in half an hour so need to get sorted. Back later.

lucysmam Thu 16-Oct-08 10:45:01

I am back again!

Bit of a pottering not doing much morning going on here hmm

Trying to think of something I can do that doesn't take too long but will make me feel like I've achieved something as well as the house is not too bad . . . did most of it at random o'clock while praying that the lo dropped off to sleep again

<<LM runs away from kim n aggie>>

IVC I wish our 'local' butcher was actually local, it's either trek to the next village or into town to buy meat from an actual butcher around here which is sad. There's no proper local shops at all apart from 4!!!! florists all within 2 doors of each other iykwim

tigger 7lb . . . well done you!!

Awww Ruby, I'm gutted for you! I loved the evening class I did last year. What was it going to be?

I have been doing . . . not a lot.

Just flicking on t'internet whilst waiting for oh to get back with MIL. Proper day off here. Even the lo is just pottering around with random bits of paper atm hmm

scattyspice Thu 16-Oct-08 12:23:07

Hi again.

simply hi

lucy £60 is no good. Have you thought about being a childminder officially? I think you'd be really good at it. smile

Ruby what was the eve class to be? Are they going to put it on again some other time? I fancy salsa dancing smile.

mad the car was £90 which is better than i thought smile. Should keep it going til Jan when MOT due.

To do:
same list except done garage and changed write shopping list to go shopping as Ds invited to friends tomorrow so can't go then.


lucysmam Thu 16-Oct-08 13:07:48

I've thought about it scatty just don't think we have the space here tbh. Am going to have a proper look into it when we move though as MIL said the same thing the other day. & I quite enjoy having kids around . . . unless they're being stompy noisy monsters shouting "nanna nanna nanna nanna nanna" like mine is at the mo.

Good (ish) news about the car btw, I was expecting you to come back saying it had cost hundreds!

I gave up on my day off, been trying to work out the best way to get as much as possible out of £10 at our local Netto as the prices there keep shooting up by 10-15p every time we go shock. Still not got very far though, I don't know how we manage on soooo little sometimes!

Have also got last lot of footy shorts out on the line & s&s'd bathroom & kitchen and hoovered upstairs. Going to sort living room once the lo has finally gone to nanna's.

Right, back to my list juggling I go via the kettle for another cuppa tea smile

intravenouscoffee Thu 16-Oct-08 14:03:52

Productive morning at the coffee household. Given the bathroom a proper clean and done a zone list for it so feel as if I've accomplished something - it's quite easy to do as there's nowhere to put any clutter and hence no clutter!

Ruby That's really annoying. Are there any other courses you were interested in?
Lucys Enjoy your day off! Our local butcher is great, at our last house the nearest one was a half hour walk but having one on the doorstep is fab and I really appreciate them.

Hope everyone's having a good day. Taking DD to the play centre this afternoon for some soft play. Should be fun!
