am now going to go round and see if the man is at the garage today to get my car sorted and go in the chemist for ds's prescription

You needed a lollipop too Galen! I think they all deserved one...
another hubpge restoring me to sanity and smiles - thankyou!
How is the ds2 waking going?

swanriver Thu 18-Jun-09 11:04:54

Further re: lollipops and suchlike...This morning dd was trying to find some special sellotape which we had bought last week - nothing would satisfy but this essential item in its own dispenser. Finally located in car, after much gnashing of teeth. But without that sellotape she could not rest, or go to school even. They just have a singleness of purpose which I suppose is admirable smile

Starbear Thu 18-Jun-09 11:24:25

Swan It must be drummed into them, place for everything and everything in it's place.
I haven't started yet with Ds (4yrs) but I'm going to start tonight! blush
Galen How the passport job going? Will you need another kick up the bum? I'm going to write another letter to nursery tonight. Join me in the paperwork quest? We will conquer it. grin

Hi all - FLYing went out of the window this morning as we had the call that my borther's wife has had her second baby boy! Lovely -all good: quick labour without any problems. Little Rudy is here!! grin

Off to get dc's from nursery and then crack on. Yesterday's afternoon nap almost turned into an all-nighter as dp left me to sleep and I woke up at 9.00pm! shock

Little sis arriving tonight after her GSCE's so must get the spare room ready.

Good afternoon all, DS just down for his nap and this has been my first chance to get a list together.

to do
prepare tea (turkey pie), mission, post parcel, town for potty and wedding outfit, weight watchers later, expect call from dad re Sunday, some ironing and possibly 15 mins decluttering understairs

Hats off to you galen for 6 LO's!

scattyspice Thu 18-Jun-09 12:42:08

Hi all.

Congrats Laura. I'd love my sis to have a baby.

Hi everyone else.

Have been up half the night with dd (second night in a row!) I think she is getting a cold (when will these constant colds clear up!). So I'm a sleepy head too! Luckily not much to do today.

To do
No after school activities (yay)
Must do ironing (am wearing a very crinkled uniform lol)
book Peter Pan ticets for trip to London (yay)
get stuff organised for mum visit this weekend.


dylsmum1998 Thu 18-Jun-09 12:44:38

galen i love reading your hubpages, always make me grin

my handirack and handiholdall just arrived so that will make things easier when we go to France. dd is sat in the empty box eating her lunch while i grab a few mins on here.

have taken ds prescription to chemist, there was a half hour wait so will go back for it later hmm

the garage is shut yet again, can only guess that there is illness preventing them from working this week, will try again tomorrow

laura congrats on baby Rudy birth, as Tmh my brother lived with me for 2 years, it was an experience, and i am now determined my children will not ever be 14 years old!!
good luck

scattyspice Thu 18-Jun-09 12:48:24

Prof - suggest you set up a good new bank account and give them all of your details of other accounts. They can close them all, and arrange for direct debits etc to be moved for you.

prof We are in the same boat with finances.We keep promising to sit down together and work it out but it never happens. That reminds me must cancel Lovefilm member ship never send films back in time, go off the idea of them when they arrive!
Collected ds from nursery. Going to have a cuppa & get on with the rest of the list!

grouchyoscar Thu 18-Jun-09 14:24:36


Busy in Grouchyland. Lots of AutoFLYing (doing it without noticing) and trailing to and from school.

Today I cluttercleared the bottom of the smellies cabinet, y'know, all the gifts people feel they should buy you but, you never use IYKWIM. The school fair can raise some funds with them. 2 full bag for life carriers to the fancy goods stall. It's better than them collecting dust in the bedroom TBH blush

Going swimming tonight, then shopping. Have great days ladies

TheMadHouse Thu 18-Jun-09 14:30:25

Maybe we should all endevour ro do the fly finances thing that scatty Did - maybe she can ge our guru. Only once I am back from my holidays though.

I can vouch for Nationwide - they are great - we have all our accounts with them, even the childrens and can see everything at a glance on the PC internet banking page.

I am back from phyc appointment and they are going to ring GP's and get my script sorted. It is possibly just down to the GP not receiving the letter yet angry

At least I have a plan of action regarding moving forward. We are going to try to achieve an acceptance of my phicical scaring/limitations. So at least I wont feel so trapped by the way I feel/look. Some tools to help me with the negatives and build on the previous CBT I have had, which worked well for me. They all agree that I am doing well to be at this place and realise that some outside input was necessary before things got worse and that they can help.

Nothing done fly wise - house looks like a bomb has dropped will tackle the spare room once the boys are collected in 10 mins (dropped them at creshe for my appointment). I wish you could get finanicail help for things like that.
