Morning star Good luck with your list. Can't do much here as dp is working nights so is in bed all day, so try to spend as much time as poss out of the house. I have done my morning routine though (it takes 3 hours!!) and now have to get ds1 dressed and get to playgroup.
Hope everyone has a good day and enjoys date night wink

Hi EHM Dylsmum LBB and Starbear

So far,
a bit tired after book club last night- rather a posh house this time so feeling a bit envy - also conversation with book group ladies lastnight a bit disjointed - feel now vaguely annoyed not quite sure about what. Think I need another book group where people talk about the book more!!!This one has been going five years, but somehow not quite gelling...

Infants Sports this morning, so just time to load dw and have a cuppa
We managed to get to school in one piece slightly ragged around the edges...hmm
Ds1 did his violin practise
waterbottles, hats and library books found
reading books signed

TheMadHouse Fri 12-Jun-09 09:23:19

Feeling frazzled and hassled already....

I so desperately need more hours in the day!

Off to have a cuppa and take a deep breath whilst formulating plan of action...

later ladies grin

damewashalot Fri 12-Jun-09 10:24:22

Hi all, still trying to get going with the flying! Hope all are well, may pop back later.grin

Tortoise Fri 12-Jun-09 10:33:25

Everywhere i look is mess.
My house has been taken over by mess.
Kids have dumped stuff everywhere.
Shoes have all managed to miss the shoe rack.
Bits of playmobil are scattered.
Clothes/pjs dropped where they took them off.
Dirty dishes etc all over the kitchen.
Sofa cushions half pulled off.

I'm at the point
where I quit.

I've had enough

I've had it right
up to here now

I'm taking a break
I quit

(Lyrics From this song! lol! That bit says exactly how i feel!)

And now i need to go back down town to do some shopping. Probably better to do it now rather than at school pick up time.

Starbear Fri 12-Jun-09 10:40:05

swan I suspect if I joined a book club I would just chat sad Then get annoyed with myself!
Mummy Try and have an easy day.
littleboyblue Not easy going around on tip-toes. I'm so glad I don't do nights anymore I don't think I could have slept well with people in the house. I remember staying over and sleeping at Mum's once. Gran & her were 'just' chatting in the garden but why so loud!!!grin

sorry to intrude fly ladies + really hope you don't mind...

I was trying to get hold of Galen because I'm interested in buying her sling from the For Sale boards but MN says she can't receive PMs. So I searched for her posts and found her here... like I say sorry for butting in on something unrelated to the thread blush. Hopefully I'll catch up with Galen in a bit

pick up package from post office
return library books of mine and dd
sort dinner.

i have done a thoruogh clean of living room as i decided i didnt like the unit where i was going to put it, cue re-shuffle of all furniture so decided while i was moving everything i would clean behind it.
gas check is all done so will be off out after we have eaten lunch

welliesandpj's how dare you intrude!! grin only joking grin.

tort i hate days like that- how about you chase dc round til they clean it up after school grin. or i collect all things that aren't put away and place them on ds's bed he then has to clean it when he gets home and gets the message for a few weeks, before we do it again grin

swanriver Fri 12-Jun-09 11:56:30

Tortoise, you can do it, you don't have to quit. They are just things (the mess that is). You are more powerful and important than those things, you can beat them.

Sometimes I have to keep repeating to myself that it is lovely that they like playing, even if playing makes a terrible mess. It is so frazzling that they don't clear up but it would be dreadful if they just sat quietly and had no energy to make a mess or noise at all.

First stop for me now before I get bogged down is hoovering behind beds in boys room.
Then I will sit down and do curtains for a bit.
Then piano keyboard for ten minutes.
Then some dates on the calendar properly.

Ds2 has a sore knee and couldn't run at sports sad and he is such a lightening bolt so felt a bit glum watching him limp..
dd came second in her race so she was pleased

Determined not to feel bleugh today, so see you all later when something is DONE.

swanriver Fri 12-Jun-09 12:01:20

Funny, Tort, that song reminds me of Footloose by Kenny ...something, which is really catchy and makes me want to rush around the house busily grin so thanks for the link!

grouchyoscar Fri 12-Jun-09 12:07:19

Hello ALL

Thanks for the thread Star
Belated Birthday greetings Sag
Should have popped in Wolf*
You OK?
waves to Wendy Mad Prof Scatty Swan Galen LLB LBAM EHM and everyone else

Still behaving here, feeling better but taking it steady. This flare up has shaken me up a bit TBH.

The walk to school was awful. Ed nearly walked in front of a bus shock Cue mum becoming a shrieking banshee. What is that kid like hmm


UP and washed
Made brekkie
Tidy front room
Empty WM
Empty DW
Put away
Make pizza dough
S&S worktops
Shine sink

Had a couple of mums round for coffee and biscuits this morning, then went surfing. taking it easy

ShannaraTiger Fri 12-Jun-09 12:24:01

Morning all

Washing out on the line grin
Sink shined
Bin cleaned
cooker cleaned
Tesco on-line

To do:
General tidy up.
Ds and me nap.

Having a quetish day today after yesterday's manic one. Lost 2 lbs at slimming world last night, received my half stone certificate and sticker. Ridiculous how stickers and certificates work for adults as much as children, so I was really pleased. Have had a few biscuits this morning but within allowed limits.

Hope everyone is having a good morning.
Tort please don't give up. My flat looks like a tip half teh time but doesn't take long thanks to flying to pull it back to a reasonable state, not Anthea Turner style but one thing I will NEVER be is a perfect housewife (except in my dreams maybe)
Starbear that's an impressive list.
Hello to everyone else sorry, I have to go and sort out lunch.


swanriver Fri 12-Jun-09 12:31:08

Grouchy, two of mine just crossed the road to school blithely this morning, thinking the mere presence of lollipop lady was magical spell, not realising she had to be in the ROAD WITH HER LOLLIPOP to stop traffic. I feel I spend an awful lot of time shouting STOP STOP to them. Luckily they seem to know the edge of pavement is "sticky" so they run run and suddenly grind to a halt. We do a lot of walking everywhere. It's actually the driveways that drive me cuckoo, because what is supposed to be safe pavement then becomes hazardous.

scattyspice Fri 12-Jun-09 12:49:11

Hi all.

Mine screech to a halt and teeter on the edge of pavements too, must give the car drivers a heart attack!

I am dashing as busy at work.

To do

oh damn there's the phone again bbl.

Tortoise Fri 12-Jun-09 14:20:14

GO Yeah i'm ok. Not great but ok! smile
Cleared up the kitchen a bit and swept the floor.
Front room floor clearer and hoovered and sofa put back together!
Shoes still all over the place!

I am soooo tired. If i didn't have to pick kids up in a mo i would easily go to sleep i think.

swanriver Fri 12-Jun-09 14:46:31

have you got all four all weekend Tortoise, or will the boys go to their dad's?

Just don't worry about house, have a cup of tea, and just sit for a while - sounds like you've made good headway.

I've hoovered behind beds and wardrobeangry and done skirtings in two rooms, nearly tripped over hoover several times and feel like 1000 degrees hotter.
Every room seems messier than ever but at least less dusty.
cleared up about one hotspot (my handbag)
stuffed a pillow up chimmey to stop cat bringing soot down again
Cleared kitchen a bit
