Morning ladies. Hope you don't mind the newbie starting. I am very excited to have now completed the babysteps! I may now start working on the missions.
I have a bit of work to do in my journal, but it will change regularly due to the childrens ages and developing needs, so not set in stone.
Hope you all have a good day.
Off now to finish my morning routine and write a to do list.

Morning all.
Thanks for the thread LBB.
Have a good day ay the village EHM
Have a good 'mystery day out' Lovebeing.

DS was not well again last night sad. He is improving, but is still very lethargic and not really eating. He looks so thin (he was pretty thin before though) and has now developed a dry cough. I am starting to get quite worried so have decided to keep him home for the rest of the week (work will just have to manage without me) and go to GP today.

Well DS2 is still scratchy and rashes, but has asked if we can still go to swimming - so that is the morning plan


DS1 to Preschool
Beds made
My bed in the washer
1 load of washing hung out and dry

To do (lots as I have been taking advantage of the great weather to play outside with the boys)

Ironing - a must
Put ironing away
Home blessing
Whats for lunch and dinner
DS2 to the opticians for eye test - dreaded drops are needed sad
Fridge clean
room rescues in all bedrooms

I am now going to have 5 mins, a cuppa nad MN and then crack on with getting the swimming things together

littleboyblue Wed 03-Jun-09 09:27:33

LBAM Have a lovely day out.
scatty Your poor ds. Hope doctors goes ok and they can help.
Mad Enjoy swimming. Hope ds is coping, but sounds like it.

So, here's my to do list
Morning routine done
Put ironing away that I did last night
Go shopping
Check food in fridge and pantry and wipe done (fridge, not food)
Empty nappy wrapper
Go to park
Go to playgroup
Cook dinner
Dinner routine
Bedtime routine

I have moved days around a bit. My errand day will be monday as it's the only day I don't have anything planned every week.
I do food shop every day.
No for the hour home blessing, I sweep and mop all floors everyday anyway and already have a pattern for bedchanging, but maybe need to set some time aside for polishing and windows, that's what I always forget!

I start a stop smoking group tomorrow. Although, this past 2 weeks, I haven't really had time to smoke much, I only had 4 yesterday!

wendyredkitchenredspots Wed 03-Jun-09 10:05:47

Morning all
Just flying in - did read yesterday's thread but had a busy non computer day so didn't manage to say hi at all.
mad hope rash is ok and swimming ok
llb keep it up girl! i've been flying with this lot since october and haven't got a control journal yet blush
Prof builders... what you having done?
EHM model village sounds good
galen as mad says costco is great. My dad is a member so takes me sometimes. Will be great for you to stock up and it's good for toys and xmas time. Dad says the meat is very good and he is an ex butcher! My old school in Durham used to pay for our cards - think they had a deal with Costco or something but don't know if that was just that particular LEA?
everyone hi

Eventful day yesterday. My oven door exploded - good job both dc in the living room! Glass everywhere as you'd expect. So not sure whether to claim on insurance or replace glass or replace oven - need to investigate cost of replacing door compared to excess on insurance/prospect of premium going up etc
DD potty training going ok - only one poo accident yesterday (in the middle of oven door explosion, of course) and we have managed two trips out as well. Monday DH had the day off hols and we went to the beach for the day - great.
Overcast here today

wendyredkitchenredspots Wed 03-Jun-09 10:14:21

galen It's front porch and dining room this week! I just did Monday's mission this morning which was to clean the floor in the porch - didn't wipe the door down though lol

scattyspice Wed 03-Jun-09 10:15:31

Hi again.

wendy shock at your oven door explosion! What caused that (should we be checking something). Glad you are all ok.

Now back from taking dd to nursery (its an hour round trip, so bit of a PITA but she wants to go). GP appt for 4.20.

To do:
wash up
reboot laundry
buy nappies etc

LBB good luck with stopping smoking (good for you).

swanriver Wed 03-Jun-09 12:07:40

So far,

slept rather badly (tis too sunny up in loft despite blackout blinds0
dcs up bright and early at 7.00 and in an excellent mood - well a few arguments
ds1 violin self initiated
dts did a puzzle
hung out washing
two to school with PE kit, Kick Rounders Money and waterbottles, sunhats
dd to dentist (she was charming) she seems to love it there hmm despite injections and fillings - any little outing with mum will do...
whilst numbness wore off she ironed her PE kit with me grin which she seemed to find extraordinarily thrilling

Since then
been wandering round house dealing with mess and various hotspots
more limescaling of loo and general scrubbing
did my control diary last night and filled two pages of things to do today, no wonder felt apprehensive yesterday
But it IS less frightening on paper

Good luck with builder, TPT and paradise towels
Railway children and waterbabies enjoy yourself today
LBB it is difficult to find right days for things isn't it?
Scatty, that's lovely she likes nursery so much, and hope Ds can get lots of rest this week.
Galen, I find antihistamines make me feel completely and utterly drunk. I think the more I stay outside with dcs the better for everyone's sanity, so don't worry about house till it starts pouring.

Work this afternoon (sigh)feel a bit defeated really
and then help at Beavers with all three dcs as dh out late..more sighing
cancelled various lifts though instead of feeling guilty GOOD.

littleboyblue Wed 03-Jun-09 12:10:10

Better have some lunch myself first......

scattyspice Wed 03-Jun-09 12:17:05

Prof - that sounds like a nightmare!
(Although hmm, like the idea of new bathroom...)

Swan - You are a star for helping at Beavers so much. I have DS on the list to join, hopefully i can get dh to do the helping hmm.

Grouchy - what did you get dh?

Galen - antihistamines knock me out too, dh takes them everyday!

dcs bedroom quick tidy up

Ds seems a bit better, but still reluctant to eat. Need to think of something tempting for lunch.

To do:
return lib books and shops
collect dd


swanriver Wed 03-Jun-09 12:18:03

hi to poor Wendy (oh dear another thing for me to worry about)
and hello to Grouchy Epimum and LovingBeing, all very focused

Looked at my control diary and done everything extra in fact except
Return Library Book, new watch battery
Reply to party invite
Get ds to write thankyous
make ratatouille
reinsure car
boiler and cooker service book
and plant petunias

so that's not TOO bad, just a few things grin

swanriver Wed 03-Jun-09 12:29:59

Scatty, I am the ONLY parent who helps out of 20 kids. I find it frustrating because I am so unsporty [sob]. There are three other helpers, but they are not parents. (So it isn't nec for joining) Although lots of Cub parents help - I think they just moved up the Scout ladder.
MEN are what they really want..

TheMadHouse Wed 03-Jun-09 12:52:58

Afternoon all

Wendy That is shocking shock I am glad that wveryone is OK adn also that the4 potty training is going well.

Swan Quite a list, well done on getting so much done

Prof shock at the water in the walls and envy at a new bathroom. Swimming cossie cost an arm and leg, but is nice, not for wearing everyweek, but will be nice for holidays, plain brown (bronzy) with broze and gold pipping

So far done

Collect DS2 from Preschool
Swimming stuff washed and hung on line
Lunch - Jackets, cheese and beans and straws and icecream

Now I am having a cuppa before cracking on with the ironing
