Today's missionsmile

Looks like we are in the kitchen, which is always a good one for me to start onsmile

TMH Is ds2 3?!shock Time is passing me by too quickly.
Tantrum is fairly standard here, too but thankfully ds gets over them very quickly (and wets himself at any old time so I can't blame tantrums for that.

GO I am assuming you will pop in at some time....just wanted to say thanks for including me in emails. It makes me smile to be rememberedgrin

TheMadHouse Mon 06-Jul-09 10:28:07

Jas I know where does time go? Our boys are growing up. I miss you too

Swan Weekend breakfasts are a little more grin porridge during the week, we were using up what was left.

It is the spec's I am angry about, he actually snapped the leg in half and pulled off the nose bits. He is now asleep on the sofa

I have done my bedroom, stripped bed, part made bed and put washer on

I hung washing out for it to be rained on hmm

I am having a cup of tea and then going back upstairs.

I have a really busy day tomorrow so have arranged for DS2 to have his first sleep over at my mums tonight shock She is at the hospital in the morning so can not come here and I have DS1's meet the teacher. I am very nervous. They are growing up and I miss them soo much

Jas thanks for the thread and mission, it's finaly kicked me into sorting the paper mountain on my kitchen side grin

I know I've missed afew threads my knee is still hurting so i'm feeling really useless, mainly because I keep forgetting and bending it too much when changing nappies or tidying up etc. and end up worrying the dc's screaming in pain. At least they care and ask i fI'm ok before telling me off for not being careful grin
Sorry ds is being really stressy this morning so I'm goign to try and put him down for a nap.
BBL to finish this entry!

swanriver Mon 06-Jul-09 12:35:55

well, I have sewed the hem of the curtain.
Now rufflette at top.

Also did mission smile and scrubbed some walltiles at same time.

TMH, have you tried inside the duvet covers or bottom of a sleeping bag? Maybe ds1 will have the answer when you pickhim up.

scattyspice Mon 06-Jul-09 12:53:10
