Presumably M.I.A. stands for MUM IN ACTION? Sagacious. or MUM IS AWOL? or even Mummy is AMAZING? or Mum In Avalanche.

Morning all.
Had a bit of a down start to the day. Stuggling with DD1's constant strops and tears over anything and everything. sad I just end up getting cross with her.
Then i stupidly felt upset because my friend didn't wait outside school for me this morning and walked past on the other side of the road. I always wait for her even if she is late or i have somewhere to go.

So i took Mickey on a nice long walk! Thought i had been ages but was home just before 10! I walked fast though. DOg is knackered. grin

House is a pit as usual so i better tackle that once again!

gibbberish Wed 24-Jun-09 11:01:36

Morning lovely ladies. Got the whole house to do today - is like a pigsty!

maggie thanks for the thread.

tort aaaw. Hope the day gets better for you.

simply finally found two seconds to reply to your mail x

Feeling a bit better atm. Spoke to dh about leaving work. He wasn't terribly positive or supportive about it but didn't expect him to be. He says he will look at our finances and see how we stand. But that appears to have been forgotten already so will need to remind him (cue accusations of nagging hmm). Ho hum.

Wanted to go to the beach today with the girls but I forgot the car is getting fixed. Drat. So have no option but to get on and tackle the house.

sagacious Wed 24-Jun-09 11:06:46

Culled fridge stuff
Cleaned fridge
Sainsburys delivery/put away


swanriver Wed 24-Jun-09 11:28:04

I've now done so much housework, that I'm sneakng back on...

just about to hoover from top to bottom before dealng wth foodstuffs.

envylovely dog to walk Tort, and my dd's strops - and my reaction to them - are causng me to have to keep rethinking things. Today she was sweet, and ds1 was delinquent instead hmm

Wolf, thought your cake idea yest was FAB are you a scultpress deep down?

Hi Gibb - last night's debacle with homework made me think how wise you are and what patience you must have to have got this far.

Tortoise Wed 24-Jun-09 11:40:07
