Wednesday Fly - Up Up and Away for Anti-Procrastination
Counsellor sounds so helpful TMH, just for giving one the time to find one's own answers.
It's so difficult to move forward isn't it, I think it's because the past holds so much that is valuable and precious to us that it also has the power to drag us down.
Anyway enough blithering (deleted most of it), due I think to fact I have been up all night dealing with potential swine flu case in ds2, but his high fever has abated so I think it may just be 36 hour virus like ds1.
He has cough, sore throat headache and vomited once, and v. hot. But seems a bit better now - hope he will sleep most of today as awoke at 4.00.
Unable to think straight, what was my plan for today, whatever it was has gone out the window, so need torethink..hmm
dh has put out recycling and taken kds to school.
need to get dressed
put stuff in loft (2 big bags)
start culling paperwork drawers
ring dr now to cancel appt for dh
cancel next week's veg box
cancel next week's milk
give neighbour holiday course details
can do all those things next door to ds2 and keep an eye on him
dh has put small telly in his room all the children find this incredibly daring
Well done Simply for your cherry and fruit loaves, I made a delicious spinach and smoked salmon and filo pastry tart yest from freezer oddments which we ate whilst watching Torchwood, I do think it's a bit sub-Spooks and overblown, but quite enjoyable. Dh loves it.
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR TEA PARTY WENDY.

Hi all - been looking for phone upgrade to use calendar/scheduling function. Given up in despair and ordered an organised mum diary instead .
Back to trying to take control of life (and get to sports day !) Hope all the poorly bods recover quickly.
swan - poor ds, hope he picks up. LOL at recycling in your nightie!
Shanna - hope you feel fully restored after your nap.
Galen - hope the LOs pick up. My 4yo is such a princess! I swing between wishing she would just co operate and wishing I could be more like her!

ds taken to granny's
Hello. Just found you, no link on yesterday's page.
Anyway, been out all morning, but did full routine of beds, dressing, sweeping mopping etc. Left cutlery soaking in vinegar to sparkle and trays and drying dishes soaking in the bath, a quick wipe down and tey should be done.
Going to attempt mission a bit later, but day is up in the air atm.
Thanks friends for the good wishes for the tea party! it's all finished - over 30 people were here plus children, it was lovely, and the table was groaning with cakes and buns and biscuits! Everyone really enjoyed it I think, the raffle and name the golly went down well too. Just counted up £145.10 so it was well worthwhile for Marie Curie.
Had some upsetting news last night, friend of DH's from childhood, still a neighbour of MIL - she is in remission from breast cancer and just found out she has a brain tumour - she is only early thirties. Apparently she went to a doctor 5 weeks ago with headaches - bearing in mind history of cancer - and he said 'Go home, take paracetamol, what do you think you've got, a brain tumour? it's just headaches'
Hope all poorlies well soon, need to get back to crafts with dc
Wendy re the tea party and news about friend of DH
Just got back from another hospital. They're running blood tests to find out why I am shattered all the time and think <<adopt whisper>> I'm probably overdoing things a bit ]hmm] So I've got a plaster on my inside elbow and no matter how brave you try to be, IT HURTS! They took 4 vials for various things so we may get to the bottom of things (I hope)
Ed has his 1st swiming lesson tonight. Hope he enjoys it and pays attention.
Well siting at the lappy won't empty the dishwasher so TTFN
Well done Wendy on a successful tea party . Sorry to hear about your friend.
Hope they can find something to help Grouchy.
DD walked to and from school today (hurray!). So I can finally throw out that buggy!
make cards with ds
make sandwiches and repack bags
review buget .
wendy sounds like the tea party was a massive success. Well done on raising so much money, I hope you are very proud of yourself
re your dh friend. Doctors are just f**king crap aren't they? Sorry for language there, but doctors are a touchy subject for me. Why is it that most of us (people I've spoken to in RL) are left diagnosing ourselves through google????? My gp failed to diagnose a simple case of hives, the useless git. Plus, when I went to see him about PND, he tried to give me sleeping tablets! WTF???????!!!!!!!!! It's doctors like these (and your dh's friends) that I want to beat with my slipper.
Hope her and her family are coping as best they can. Can anything be done about the doctor? As you say, surely with her history a bit more care and attention should have been paid to this?
grouchy Hope they find the problem. I hate blood tests too and normally cry . You'd think after having babies, a little blood test would be nothing. I have to have them every 6 weeks or so because apparently my liver count is high and my useless doctor doesn't know why or what it could be.
Goodluck to Ed tonight. Hope it goes well.
I have complained about my gp surgery 3 times now and this week am going to register us somewhere else.
sorry you had the horrible hospital crawl again Grouchy
well done Wendy
Ive felt blotted out all day, lay down with ds2 to have a sleep but no use he didn't settle
Read him stories and then he had to walk to school with me - but he managed it so that's a good sign.
now kids have watched half of Hook and some Raven..oh dear...
more laundry done and hung out
But managed to get rid of another big pile of paperwork, and put rest in several coloured files, have to sort it AGAIN into date order, (then can chuck even more)once I've got to bottom of mountain. Also found a spare pair of glasses and a important certificate in process
Beavers helping tonight and dropping off duties.
And inspired by Cakemakers United, threw together a nice apple, yoghurt and sultana loaf which ds1 and I have eaten most of
Scatty - don't do it, you will have nowhere to put the bags! I wished I had had a buggy today for ds2 - it would have been v. useful.
lol swan - I might swap the buggy for a wheel barrow!

haven't quite caught upt with rest of charaters...
Very busy swan.
Mad - Agree that your mum doesn't need to know the details of your councelling.
school forms filled in (late ).
dc in bed (1 asleep)
school paper work filled (mostly binned)
holiday paperwork put in a folder
tel calls made (out).
To do tomorrow:
Get school holidays dates for 2009/10 as work need to know (tsk).
buy PE tops for both DC my baby doing PE! from school.
mad I had a similar experience with my mum in my teens when my bloody stupid doctor wrote to my parents to tell them I was being treated for depression and would they come to a family counseling session - the doctor never asked me for permission (i was over 16) and clearly missed the fact that my parents were a major part of the prob.
It caused all sorts of ructions in the family. Mum asked pretty much daily and it was a huge extra pressure when there was already too much to deal with. I ended up lying and telling them that the counseling and pills had finished just to avoid the subject, I ducked questions about the session contents with vague answers. Yes the counselor is nice (she wasn't), yes I'm feeling better etc.
I have never since told them about periods when I've needed meds or counseling. The good thing about a counsellor is that you can tell them things that you can't tell anyone else. I firmly believe that that it what makes it effective. I would politely but firmly tell your mother that you don't wish to discuss it. If she keeps asking then I would thank her for her interest and concern and you understand that she is only concerned for your welfare but that this is something that you need to do for yourself.
swan does my torchwood character get to shag John Barrowman?
Mad agree with wolf. could you tell her the counsellor told you not to share with anyone else as part of the process - then it doesn't seem like it's you doing it?
lol wolf he is, as my mum says, a dish!
