Morning all

I have spent the last couple of hours trying to clean burnt on porridge from the bottom of my pan - vinigar, bicarb, soap powder etc

Now am heating lemons in pan to get rid of smell in the house as we are waiting for the SALT to come and do assesment on DS1 - we recond this would happen as he was born with a tongue tie.

I also have a councelling session later today to!!!

boys have been colouring and then playing in the garden till it started to rain, so have decided to do jellys with mum whilst I am at the docs.

Drop mum home
Drop DS2 to MIL
Then swimming lession
Collect DS2

Also need to do some ironing and srepurposing of DH's old work shirts into painting smocks

LLB Hope you have a fab holiday.

We've come back from a great trip to Wetland Centre, lots of reeds water birds rushes and secret paths - topped off by an adventure playground. Picnic hit the spot, although dd started moaning at 2.00 that she wanted chips hmm

Now she's off to party round corner, ds2 has a tummyache and ds1 is pottering.
Think my swim is not going to materialize, will have to unbook creche as forgot about party blush

But feels very peaceful, think I might manage some housework now.

Brillo pads? TMH
That smell of burnt milk etc is overpowering isn't - makes me think of Jane Eyre and the horrible school where they have to eat burnt porridge.
Sounds like a nice sort of eventful day rather than a nasty sort of eventful day ifysim. Hope counselling continues as well as it has.

Oh and we need to paint the coil pots which havenearly dried.

Also I am going out tonight with a friend who wants to talk something serious through and has booked me...

To clean a burnt pan i put a liberal sprinkling of salt on the pan add a little water and boil it up. The burnt bits sort of bubble off and no scraping.

wendyredkitchenredspots Tue 21-Jul-09 15:38:22

crockydoodle I was just about to post the same thing!
Hi all
Rain all day here but my DS still in school til friday so been toddler group.

See you later

Jas Tue 21-Jul-09 16:16:28

Burnt porridge pan......always make porridge in the microwavegrin Much easier to wash up.

We've had friends here all day, but house hasn't suffered too much as a result.

Tea is planned (leftover chicken and pasta), so only really need to hang wet washing on airer now.

Further DONES

Vac front room
Vac stairs and landing
Dust bedroom
Buy quick pressy for DH b'day
Ed pressies in an organised pile
Bring down dry washing and put away

Spent this afternoon tolerating coping with my M (Long story, we have no relationship and are estranged as, well, she's strange TBH) Ed loves his pressy and I am proud of myself for not letting her wind me up for once shock

Might make the evening meal tonight, just do wedges and grab something from the freezer.But chemistry with Ed first

wendyredkitchenredspots Tue 21-Jul-09 20:02:48

hiya everyone
well done grouchy on surviving your Mum!
swan jungle party sounds like fun! Would love to go to Imax, still not made it yet

Ordered an Organised mum diary so I can fill it in on hols [sad and ridiculous emoticon]
Ordered lots of reading books for DS - he can read well but already but starts in Reception in Sept and I want to encourage him to read his school book (think he will not want to as he will already be able to do it! He is really bad at showing off what he can do)
Made cheesy muffins - 24 mini ones and 4 large ones all gobbled by 4 of us blush - good job the dc had eaten lots of fruit and veg already today as that was their tea! Feel myself getting fatter and fatter!

see you tomorrow, better get off the computer before my credit card explodes ...

Jas Tue 21-Jul-09 20:38:37

It is a spending day today.

I've ordered wall stickers for ds and dd2s new room, and geeky stuff which I'm hoping will get dd1s new computer online.

Washing is hanging up (inside) and jobs all done. I'm going to sit down and read a book I

(The secret to porridge in a microwave is a very large plastic bowl, then it doesn't boil over)

Evening all

Seems like good days were had by all.

Not much done on the cleaning front

Seems sewing machine has died a death, so I am collecting mums old one when we take her to the hospital tomorrow.

We made traffic light jellys after my councelling session, which was rather emotional both myself and my counceller were in tears blush, but very very positive. She is an expert in dealing with disfigurement and long term illness, so knows her stuff, she also gives really practical solid advise smile

wendy I need to do some baking, muffins sound nice can I have the receipe please.

Groucy Well done on the mum front - I still use my mummy mantra "I am not responsible for my mothers happiness" - plus have sent you a mail.

Swan picnic etc sounds good. I too have never been to an imax.

crockydoodle Tried salt first, didnt lift it, but at least it is clean now.

Jas I would noramally microwave, but need a new bigger pot, as DS1 will eat loads and I too like it.

Simply How is the ironing going???

I have been updating my blog, please comment or join me as a follower - I am billy no mates on it!!! here I have loads of exciting stuff to come - yeh right!!!!

Sorry TM. I wrote a comment asking how long to wait for each layer to set before pouring on the next layer, but I don't know which profile (I think it is) to choose and so it wouldn't let me do the anonymous one.

I did some ironing recently so I've only got a load or two to do. I could have done some tonight but dd wanted us to watch a recorded "A Touch Of Frost" programme together so we did!

Right. Off to bed! Nos da pawb. Good night all.
