Good morning good morning

swanriver Mon 15-Jun-09 09:16:05

Two dcs to school, but dd is still ill with virus (hot and miserable) so a quiet day ahead.

Dh and I managed to have a nice chat yesterday, and discussed what we thought our roles in the home were grin so I feel a bit less tetchy.

Goals for today
sitting with dd
menu planning for week - check contents of fridge and cupboard
put laundry away

sort out some extra driving lessons with BSM to use car with gears (at moment only manage an automatic)
book hairdresser for some time this week (haven't been for six months blush

You all sound as if you had great Sundays outdoors!

swanriver Mon 15-Jun-09 09:17:29

Our chat was sparked off by him watching the Stepford Wives!

EHM I'm off on 16th July. Should start some planning. My Aunt lives in Galicia in NW Spain in a place that's too small to call a village. We wanted to go Mark Warner this year ha! Ha! Ha! I've saved for five years to have a blow out holiday and the money has gone! To be fair Aunt & Uncle come over for Gran's funeral and fell in love with Ds. He is going to have a fab time. I'm going to take some books and watch over him the whole time!
I've put lots of weight, don't have the money and haven't got the time to do any holiday clothes shopping. sad Going to clean and iron old stuff & cross fingers.

Starbear Mon 15-Jun-09 11:39:55

Hello all. smile
Had a fun day yesterday thowing buckets of water at each other. Funnily enough the water seemed to miss me grin.

Have had a good tidy round the front room this morning as well as booking local hall for DD2's birthday party. Think we are having an inflatable slide. So i will need to make sure i am careful with money so that i can pay for it!

Have also printed off and filled in budgeting loan form. All ready to send off.
Looking at maybe going to Dawlish Warren.

Hope all are ok?

Starbear Mon 15-Jun-09 12:46:56
