swanriver Tue 16-Jun-09 11:24:11

It's lovely that you can do lots of visits EHM before school starts and the relentless timetable...I wish I had got out and about more before the school day/term took over.

Good news about second(?) viewing.

Lbb, good luck with sleep arrangements. I remember being obsessed with ds2 lunchtime nap being two hours not 45 mins, and determined to get him to stay asleep. It did work but I think but I think I did drive myself demented in process, possibly not the best policy.

Boiler dealt with smile I love this plumber because he rings me up and reminds ME.
And paid gas bill yesterday.

Now all the things I didn't do yesterday...what were they exactly..seem less pressing now
AND
put back contents of 2 cupboards
unpack veg box and MEAL PLAN
buy any extra food to fit around veg
seriously clean inside car which is revolting since tip visit

oh also need to buy a turntable as dh wants to listen to old vinyl
use up soft margarine

laurasmiles Tue 16-Jun-09 11:48:35

Good mid-morning all,

Still chasing tail but on the right track to have myself and house back in control when littlest sister arrives on Friday. She is fresh out of GCSE exams which she appears to have flunked and is generally in a bad place - so the parents are shipping her out to me! (good grief hmm). Will have to work on finding the right balance between giving her space and kicking her firmly but acccurately up the butt! wink

Ds at nursery this afternoon and dd and I off to her dancing class so I'm on to lunch soon - morning routine rather late as per usual! blush

Better crack on! smile

not impressed went back to garage and still shut at 10.30, so popped to town and bought some bits for holiday for me and few home bits. back to garage where it was open but only the young trainee bloke in not the one i arranged to see. apparently the one who was meant to be doing it is not in today- so why tell me to go in angry.

Five mins before I pick up kids from their club (unfortunately ds1 is still here mooching around on computer)

Done
booked haircutand colouration for Thursday

enquired about driving lesson for manual car, but it turns out once you've passed automatic, you have to retake test for manual so more complicated...will have to rethink plan (all so that I can drive parents' car as and when..)

put back undersink cupboard, boiler cupboard and airing cupboard in good order smile

cleared out festering pile behind small shed
put veg box contents in fridge (still at sea with menu for this week tho)

cleared out "stationery drawer" in kitchen hideous muddle
cleared out tupperware box and baking tin cupboard and put lids in one place

got to dash

swanriver Tue 16-Jun-09 17:59:40

Sagacious - school fetes are v.v.hard work - good for you. TPT, I'm sure you are involved in one too. I help on day (from dawn to dusk it feels like, but am so cr*p at organization that luckily no-one asks me to help plan it) Maybe next year I'll be more directed.

Also done - piano practice
supper about to fry some fishcakes from freezer (decluttered that too)

EHM Tue 16-Jun-09 18:20:14

swan I am trying to do visits so ellie doesn't miss her preschool sessions. she missed last week as we where in manchester at my sister's. To be far the PS don't mind & I am dreading the strictness of school once it arrives. Couple who came back last night made several offers on Friday & we finally agreed a figure. they are getting married in august & want to move in by beg of sept. fingers crossed this all goes through this time.
laura i hope your visit with little sis goes well.
swansmile@ dh wanting to listen to old records. You've done lots todaysmile
galen yay for getting passport forms donesmile
TMH I feel cooking fat may have to be told anymore shitting & he is going to the cat protection people.wink
must be very frustrating. Our cats never relieved themselves in the house-phewie as ellie says.
