Gorgeous weather again here...hope you all have sun and can enjoy

No cooking or food shopping in this house until the boys get back.
Enjoy grin

Hello hello hello! It's the weekend yay!

Glorious, glorious weather here so going to mad dash through the house then sit out in the sun for the rest of the day and burn to a crisp grin

Party was good fun last night (and had no alcohol which am very pleased about). I should be wearing browns, greens, reds, aquas, dusky pinks. Which are the colours I usually wear anyway!

Had to say goodbye to a good friend who is moving down to England. Met her at the motorway services at half eleven last night as she was driving down to England with all the kids. Was so awful. All her kids and my kids were hysterical with crying. Me and friend were too. Really, really upsetting sad We will probably see more of them now that they have moved tbh as they are coming back to visit in July and we are going down there to stay for a week in June. Still, is awful knowing we can't just jump in the car to Crieff and see them any more sad

Anyway, planning to have a busy day and be outside for the most part. Will catch up later x

grouchyoscar Sat 30-May-09 11:54:40

How do you luiverly lot

The weekend is here and it is sunny grin

DS has been a bit bullied by next doors brood, they tend to blame all the bad things on him and I have to be diplomatic hmm

Washing pegged out. garden swept and I better scarper. Friends are round tonight so it's hotspot tackling for most of the day. See you later

littleboyblue Sat 30-May-09 14:18:04

epi Hope your dd is ok.
star envy of your day to yourself. Don't do the housework, get a bottle of martini, a bottle of lemonade, a fesh lemon, lots of ice, a big cocktail jug and a straw, then get a good book and chill in the garden. Heaven grin
gib Glad you had a good night, but sorry about your friend moving. I appreciate the friends I moved away from alot more now, so for me it was a positive step.
grouchy have a good night.

Dp has just gone to my dad's for the night fo footie fest. Ds1 is having a nap, ds2 is trying to roll over but not quite there yet. I have done 1 hours worth of ironing and been to tescos. I think I need to hoover the livingroom, bit crummy!

laurasmiles Sat 30-May-09 14:45:56

Happy weekend everyone, well somehow I'm managing well with this FLy stuff but awfully with this thread! I seem to have done an about turn. blush Happy for my house and family but feeling a bit useless here. haven't managed to catch up with all the ins and outs. Hope you are all okay! smile

Has a quick scan and managed to pick up a couple of bits:

Gib - boohoo for friend, I hate goodbyes.
But I'd love to do the colour consultant, shame she didn't give you a new colour so you'd have an excuse to go clothes shopping!! grin

wendy - my dd is potty training at the moment and still has endless accidents - most frustratingly when she falls asleep in the car and wets the seat!! Grrrr - yuk! Still, it can't go on forever!

Comfort eating? I know well - although at the moment I am comfort smoking shock blush yes I know it's horrid and ridiculous. Gotta stop.

Still, house is calm here. Dp has taken children to shops for my birthday pressies (Monday) and I have done my morning routine and will tackle a bit of paperwork next. Going to enjoy a soak and a read in the bath -and maybe a cheeky afternoon nap - aaaahh!!!

gibbberish Sat 30-May-09 15:04:14

Thanks laura and lbl smile

lbl leave the hoovering and go to the park instead! Much too nice to be inside.

laura sounds like you are having lovely relaxing day! smile

Oh dear... dd4 has pushed dd1 in the paddling pool WITH her mobile... mobile no longer working. dd1 Not Happy. Oops.

Twas funny though grin

Been to B&Q and bought loads of shrubs and bark chips for the front garden. Got someone coming next week to pull out some conifers and we are removing all the rose bushes then replanting (non jaggy!)shrubs.

Off to drop dd1 to friend's in Falkirk then back for BBQ and sitting in the sun whilst dangling feet in paddling pool. Bliss.

Hope you are all having a fab day!

Simply Sat 30-May-09 15:20:15

Hello to all.

I've been out most of the day! My hair has been cut and coloured so I no longer resemble Father Ted's housekeeper!

Dh, ds and dd are coming back in about an hour and I have the shopping to put away and need to do a tidy up. Please excuse this short post.

This is what ds was doing this morning in his ten piece group:- ds in another comp

Three of them are the youngest they are allowed to be (15) so they did well. Ds is on the far right with the silver coloured instrument. They came 3rd out of 12 or more I think.


Starbear Sat 30-May-09 16:27:28

Simply You must be proud as punch. What a lovely skill such lovely music. grin
gibbberish LOL at your DD1. Not right really blush
laurasmiles & Wendy Yes, it does. Thank God we don't have to wash by hand in a tub anymore smile
littleboyblue I love gardening never get to do it with the boys around. I'm saving the martini for sun down with olives and Madmen grin
I can't believe how long it's taken to get rid of ivy from my hedge. Dh isn't going to notice the difference as it all looks green to him but the ivy will kill the hedge!
Now to potty some plants smile

TheMadHouse Sat 30-May-09 17:27:17

Evening all

Just a quick check in really to bookmark the thread, will read later on tonight.

We have been out to Costco to stock up smile
DH bought me a lovley pair of superdry jersey trainers - very trendy

We are now having a BBQ

scattyspice Sat 30-May-09 18:07:45

Hi all. Can't stop as have literally turned the bedroom upside down to clean and need to put it right.

Lovely sunny day, feel like I'm on holiday smile

Galen - hope you had a lovely day.

Gib - sad about your friend.

Epimum - sad poor dd, does she have many fits?

wolf- work situation sounds awful!

Poor ds is stilly poorly, has been asleep most of this pm sad. Been to library with dd and played in paddling pool smile.

Dh has laid the kitchen lino!! Even he keeps saying 'it only took a morning to do a job I've been putting off for a year!' lol Looks great though grin.


TheMadHouse Sat 30-May-09 18:39:03

scatty Yah for the lino

Well what can I say DS2 has cracked toilet training. no accidents for 2 whole days and now he even stands up to wee!!!!!!


I have also been on the pink plont again, so be prepared for a love in later grin blush

wendyredkitchenredspots Sat 30-May-09 18:42:57

wolf work sounds truly awful!
scatty hope dd a bit better soon.
must dash, children calling!

bb tomorrow.

swanriver Sat 30-May-09 19:03:33

very nice day except for dh bear with sore head hmm
wish he would just go away and live in a cave for a while
bought food for ds's party tomorrow
taken dd to a softplay party (slight waste of a beautiful day but she had great time in outdoor area)
dh took dss to fairground and got thoroughly sick on one of the rides...

Now tidying house for party, need to

clean kitchen
clean playroom
sweep garden
cheer up dh

bb when I have achieved this things

scattyspice Sat 30-May-09 19:34:59

Mad and Wendy - what amazing children you have! Mad, it is such a relief when you have both Dc out of nappies smile.

Swan - have a good party.

All done. BB tomorrow.

TheMadHouse Sat 30-May-09 20:07:55

scatty I know I am having a proud mummy minute. I love them both soooooooooooooooooo much. Ds2 told me I was a lovley mummy tonight as I put him to bed and that I gave the worlds best kisses and cuddles smile

They are just perfect in every way. Me and DH have been saying how different the two of them are. DS2 is very creative, imaginative and his vocab is beyond anything I have ever heard out of a two year old. Where as DS1 is so analyical and number orientated it beggars believe - he can count to way over a thousand now and his addition adn subtraction is way better than mine shock He knows all his letter sounds and can so jigsaws with over 100 peices. Not bad for a 4.3 year old

Starbear Sun 31-May-09 08:26:56

Mad, I feel I should have got more done with the boys being away. I've slept very well which is odd for me, must have been relaxing working in the garden. Good for the soul I believe.
Have a lovely time at your niece's birthday, it's going to be another lovely day.

Make beds
fill the washing machine
clean fridge
Shop for food
make Spag Bol
Tidy house (just straighten)
Go back in the garden until the boys get back
Get Hop vine off holly bush, just saw it this morning how did I miss that!
Put fresh compost in various pots

Buy feed & weed for lawn.
That should do it!
Have a lovely day everyone smile
