BWB just noticed your dreadful news. Lowlife pieces of crap. There are no words to express how sorry I am to read this.
thanks for thread ehm*
*Baileys happy birthday!!
tort how long have you been waiting for your cooker?
ds says his tummy ache has gone and went off to school.
dd had a really bad night, the lowest her temp was 39.5 after calpol and her asthma was bad too, managed to get that under control by 4.30 am then got a little sleep, woke up just before 8 and her temp is normal she's 36.5 now. very bizarre and very good. hopefully its gone as quick as it came. she's still very cuddly so will be trying to fly between hugs today.
is anyone kind enough to post the orange mince pie recipe? i want to try it
Do i get a badge for efficiency? Have managed to place two Tesco orders and am now too late to cancel one!
Hope all poorlies on the mend
*tmh yay that you finally have heating and it's stayed working this time
tort the kids look gorgeous in that photo
dyls hope the minidyls are feeling much better today
I'm feeling very blue today but its granny's birthday so I need to put my game face on and pretend I don't.
more clearing up
need to find various bits of paperwork
we are going to go and buy a christmas tree to try and cheer ourselves up. I am also thinking of painting on our new chipboard window to make it less depressing.
thank you to all for your kind (and violent) thoughts.
Happy Birthday Greyskull*
*Tort Fab photo, even better children
Wolf You could do a ntavity scene on it or even a tree
EHM Thanks for the thread
Dlys Hope you man age a rest today
I have the mums and toddler christmas party this morning
then back to drop DS1 at Preschool
Write christmas cards
I went to the doctors yesterday and it seems for the first time in my entire life my BP is really high - worrying so. He checked it 5 times with 2 different machines. I need to go back next week to have it checked again and if it is the same then I will need some tests
So I need to chill and take things easy - easier said than done with the mini mads, but I will try
Hope you get through the next week Wolf. Could you do a Jungle Book scene with good wolves for your mural?
Hope you can rest TMH for a while today.
Dyslmum you must be exhausted
Broke down in tears on phone by 7.00 yesterday after ARGOS order still was not delivered. It was misdelivered to wrong address last week (on wrong day) and I waited the whole of yesterday AGAIN, rang to chase, yet kept saying yes it was being delivered. BUT no delivery. Have now cancelled whole enormous shipment. Curious sense of relief. Off to shopping centre now to do rl shopping and return laden with rl parcels.
House seems extremely messy - its seems very sensitive to my moods.
Yesterday I discovered a clove of garlic in washing machine. That would explain continued good health of children and strange smell of the laundry for last six washes.
Thanks for the thread EHM and also for your parcel which arrived yesterday monring - so kind! I have put the pressies to one side ready for the big day!
Happy Birthday Greyskull
Tort that picture is lovely! I can't believe you managed to get all 4 kids and the dog looking at the camera and smiling at the same time!
Hope you manage a calm day TMH
I have had the day off work today to wait in for a parcel so have plans to blitz the house and get the Christmas cards written.
So far I have managed to;
do morning routines
finish some Christmas present making and finally put craft basket away (yippee!)
hoover living room (moved sofas to make sure I was thorough)
worry about money
wash rugs from living room
Still need to;
hoover rest of house
good clean in kitchen; esp sort cluttered kitchen cupboard
quick sort through utility room
list a box of toy cars on freecycle
plan decent supper
Ds has his Nativity show this eve which I am very much looking forward to seeing Dds is tomorrow eve and she has a severe case of stage fright going on, hope she's OK in her dress rehersal today
Better get on, BBL x
thanks for birthday wishes.
wolfcub I think painting the chipboard is a great idea. something bright and cheery.
ruby do you have a freezer you can throw the extra stuff into? that is what you get for being so efficient!
bianca don't forget to take the kleenex tonight sure it will be fabulous
swan at garlic in washing machine.. I am sure some of our pagan friends on here could explain some fabulous good fortune in washing clothes in garlic or something like that
dyls hope you enjoy your day of snuggles - great reason to take it easy
ehm thanks for thread

I am flying, but need to dash as dd is having a bit of a meltdown.
Waves to all..LT
Still trying to FLY, but need to do something and then report back instead of writing a plan and failing to do it I think.
Can any of you more organised hostessy people help me here please?
Back from toddlers with two very hyper children, but they were great in the church and DS1 sung away in a manger so well
They have had so much crap that they do not need feeding and I am not sure if DS2 will manage a nap at all.
I am planning to zone clean the bathroom and do christmas cards if he does whilst watching some stuff on sky +
Will now get DS1 changed into his school uniform - that is if he stands still long enough.
Swan I would be fuming at Argos

Grouchy more at Wetherspoons
Had a cool morning at Toddlers Xmas party. DD scared of Santa again though! Had fun and my home made iced star and Christmas biscuits were so pretty and the most popular! [preening]
DS was picked up by Auntie Angela (DH's sister) and is still at her house so getting a few minutes.
Popped to the shops - few more things for doodle drawers!
That's it - oops - better get cracking!
Wolfcub get some white paint and doilies and do some snowflakes? Chin up petal
I am doing OK
Zone clean in the bathroom is done
skip car has been cleaned inside - found rotting banana which was the source of the stench
Now to have a cuppa in front of the TV
Well I went to check that all the Lego was in the kit but...
It's 1632 pieces in total
It's really really fiddly stuff (loads of those flat thin plates of 1 block)
I kept loosing count
The seller assured me it was complete
I'm sure I can get spares from Lego (it looks like basic stuff anyway)
I was going boz eyed
So I've re-boxed it and wrapped it up. I just hope he likes it. I've wrapped the DVDs, book and CD too so I'm just waiting for the last bit from Play
Off to see Santa
happy birthday greyskull
we've been to get an xmas tree to cheer ourselves up.
I'm going to match grouchy's blushes here I had a dreaded sausage roll for lunch
oh and I've dusted the living room thoroughly too and polished the glass in the sideboard and tv cabinet. I've also polished the fire - if anyone has one with shiny bits of metal on it those spontex glass cloths do a fab job.
We're home, Ed is partied out, he's full of goodies and tired. He's tucked up in my bed with teddy watching Sonic Underground I will administer calpol and toast when required.
Suppose I can catch up with FLYing while he dozes
wendy thanks for the link for the mince pies
Go I'm not suprosed your losing count lego is the worst thing ever to count. fingers crossed its all there!
wolfcub why are sausage rolls dreaded?? i love them just out of the oven
looking at the recipe for the mince pies what is vegetable shortening? it asks for vegetable chortening e.g. trex, couldn't see either in the co-op
