Several false starts but kids have settled down, and at last are doing their own thing after various little spats (havng to entertain visitor by myself at one stage)
Ds1 is feeling much better, think he has sweated it out overnight, but now a bit of a bolshy teenage prescence. Still not in walking mode. Ds2 hs had a relapse and has been sent back to bed with the ds lite Dd is dancing
hiya all Had such a busy week. Dealing with a wasps' nest, being stung and a bad reaction to it (only me, not the dc thankfully! ), girls' night out and subsequent hangover, my birthday (yesterday) and DS's school summer fair ... phew Wasp nest gone, had to wait in for three hours for man to remove it yesterday (my birthday grr!!) and he didn't turn up. Phoned another bloke and he came 9 this morning. It was really big, glad we didn't tackle it ourselves. So now our decking bench has been crow barred up Just been to sports day at ds's nursery - lovely. He won two races and was very proud of himself! Went to see Harry potter last night - enjoyed it despite inevitable plot changes and it was good to get out. Went to buy a new oven yesterday cost £££! if you remember the old one blew up and the second oven (there were two single ovens ) has stopped working properly. So it's been an expensive few days really! Hope all are well here - RL just getting in the way of my being on here atm.
Wendy - good to see you again. Happy birthday for yest. Wasps nest sounds a PITA.
To do get cards and presents for school and nursery together find appt card for dd club foot appt on Fri wash and dry spare clothes for nursery (dd's continence has relapsed) Bathroom floor clean fridge
Done sandwich lunch dcs to park for little runaround (ds sat under a tree) Another post-flu friend to play from next door (playing v. happily in garden now) Boys are still pretty much a handful, screeching complaining annoying each other but have put them in front of Pingu (about their level) Made some choc chip cookies, which then had to retrieve 5 mins in to add more flour as always get recipe wrong..
Feel v. relaxed
All the washing sound grim on blog TM. I'm on top of washing, have completely abandoned ironing, but washing up and hoovering leave much to be desired. After a few set tos with dds, she has written a chart of what she wants to do (well at least for tomorrow) and when she wants to do it, rather than this dreadful, I want to go shops now to spend pocket money, I want to go swimming now this minute, I want to ride my bike this minute, make sweets etc etc, see xxx, why can't we ...?
Wasps' nests - feel for you Wendy Scatty - hope work is fine Prof - hope you are getting some time off soon
hi all thanks swan and scatty - there is a large hole now where the wasp nest was! Just watched the vid of sports day! OMG I look huge! I have put on 5 lbs since we moved house, think it's time for serious action not just pretending! Definitely going on the choc/cake/cheese wagon as of tomorrow!
