Thanks for the thread Dyls

Hello to Wendy Scatty and Mad

<<Waves>> to all who follow.

Ed is off school, sore throat, hot and cold spells and a raised gland in his neck. He is confined to Education City and board games

Means I can tackle the FLY backlog, like the laundry. Thing is, it's too muggy to dry on the line, the air is stagnant hmm

I can also take the opportunity to rest up. I think I need it TBH

Made tea last night, pepper and bacon lasagne which was very nice. Might do tea tonight too as I wont be rushing here there and everywhere.

DONE list

Up, washed and meds
Wake Ed
Wash Ed
Wake Ed again
Make his bed
Take crockery downstairs

Put away
Load WM and run

Ed has discovered the Neil Young CDs and seems v happy ab out that so, keep on rocking in the free world!

Hello, Wendy, Scatty and Dylsmum

Mine are sleeping okay, and in quite a good mood, but I am noticeably grumpy for going to bed too late (last minute desire to leave kitchen neat and tidy and do lunchboxes)

And as far as I can see, tidying at night is like writing great music while intoxicated, not so great next morning. House is still covered with muddle and mess. Dh has bought 6 new shirts, and is refusing to throw any of the old ones except a particularly hideous orange one.

Ds1 screamed at me because he couldn't find his library book at last minute, and pjs everywhere along with cds and books.
So TIDYUP time for 30 mins before I even think of what other jobs are.

swanriver Tue 30-Jun-09 09:18:28

Grouchy, - just taken out my Decade Album, "Old Man Take A Look at My Life" is one of my favourites. Sorry Ed's ill, but glad it's a breather for you.

TheMadHouse Tue 30-Jun-09 09:23:29

Morning again

Groucy Sorry Ed is not on top form, glad it gives you the op to take things easier grin

Swan I guess the heat must be taking it toll on everyone down south

Dyls Hope you find out the time, not sure I would like to go to a sports day where you are ATM

It is sunny here, but just nice TBH.

Wendy Good luck with the bedroom move - does this mean they will be in seperate rooms?

Terrible night here again. I was up with both of them most of the night. Ds1 has a temp of over 40 degrees, again. So he's a bit of a state.

LBB, poor you, sounds worrying and knackering. Did you try just taking all his clothes off and sponging him?, I'm sure you know everything already.

I took all the plastic matress protectors off dcs' beds to make things a bit cooler for them, (luckily no accidents)it made a big difference.
I also put all blinds up and windows open as soon as it was dark, to maximize circulation, then closed them last thing at night before dawn hit us.

Playroom tidy (ier)
now have to fetch ds2 from school again and take to appt at drs.

galen Tue 30-Jun-09 09:46:31

dylsmum1998 Tue 30-Jun-09 09:48:34

lbb poor you and ds, sound advice from TMH*

sports day is at 1.30pm- just when children should be running in a scorching hot field hmm shock

littleboyblue Tue 30-Jun-09 10:59:36

Thanks ladies.
He often gets temps of 40+ degrees, but by the time I get him to docs or a&e it has always fallen, they say it's ok if the calpol/ibuprofen is controlling it, but it normally only lasts an hour and I cant medicate him that often, is very frustrating when they won't do anything. But what can they do?
A few months ago, middle of night on a sunday, his temp was 42, I called out of hours doc and was told the only way the doc would come out was to confirm a death shock My ds1 isn't even 2 years old!!!!!! I had to call dp home from work (nights) to take him to hospital (prob should have just called 999) but again, when they got there it had dropped.
He is and has been in just a nappy and I am routinely songing him with a cool flannel, have a tub of water next to me for him. Am trying to keep his hair/head wet too. I also have bottles of frozen water around the house trying to cool the air, not sure it working though.
Dp starts nights tonight so is in bed and has fan in there with him, the selfish sod!
