Morning.
Can't remember the last time i popped in blush. Used to be on FLY all the time!

House is pretty messy as usual and needs a complete tidy before we go away in about 2 weeks time!

Probably won' get much done today because it is DD2's 5th birthday.

Need to pop to the shops for bread before lunch time too.

Hope everyone is ok? smile

Lovely to see the sun shining this morning for once.

Hi all
children squabbling constantly, but we will divide and conquer by taking one to party, and two to cinema.

House not too untidy , I save sooo much time not doing school runs!

hi fairybubbles and welcome
hi tm wolf prof tort grouchy!
Just getting myself up and about. Long tiring day yesterday, drove up to Durham for a birthday party, stayed til about 6 then drove home, dc very tired but ds still up at 6 shock - he is exhausted and unfortunately we are going to another party at 1 pm today! It's an all day affair too, hoping the weather clears up as it's in the garden!
DS finished nursery on Friday, I was very sad that my baby boy is all grown up and moving up to Upper Foundation in September sad. He isn't sad and says he is looking forward to it, so that's good.
We are off on our hols next Saturday, and this is the first week of our summer holidays (strange holidays round here) so I am behind you lot!
Well need to go and make something to take to the party!
see you tomorrow

TeaMonster Sun 26-Jul-09 11:15:21

Wolfcub Sun 26-Jul-09 12:11:42

good morning all

sorry I haven't been her much for the last week but it's been a rough one.

we went wedding ring shopping yesterday and had a bbq in the garden last night so that was nice.

Hope all have a lovely day and grouchy finds her Mojo (can you send it my way when you do because mine seems to be hiding under a rock somewhere).

wendy try and take it easy today

TM I am dying to know what craft activity you are planning

TeaMonster Sun 26-Jul-09 15:42:27

He he he wolf I was getting my ingerdiaents ready for the week.

I have made scented playdough - instructions on blog

we are going to make pavement paint and chalk, but I didnt get the tray - so that will wait. I ideally want a silicone one so that I can use it to remake the crayons like Prof did that time.

Paint is just

Cornflour, water and food colouring - it is runny
Chalk is plaster a paris with paint mixed in and allowed to dry.

I am making the most of my time with the boys and remember doing loads of this stuff with my mum

TheProfiteroleThief Sun 26-Jul-09 15:46:59

hI ALL
yOUR ART SMOCK IS very bunting cupcake Mad - your ds is very sweet. Have just come back from yet anothr party.
DH packing as off to Italy - without me.So we should be in for an interesting few days. My mantra will be

I am the parent

ie I won't stamp my feet when I get annoyed!

TeaMonster Sun 26-Jul-09 16:05:04

pmsl Prof We are defo not bunting cupcake in any way shape or form. I am actually crying tears of laughter at just how far out that it. We are green and thrifty!!!!

TeaMonster Sun 26-Jul-09 16:05:45

Also my tip would be - lock em all in the bathroom and put food throught he window to them!!

TheProfiteroleThief Sun 26-Jul-09 16:05:52

Oh I dispute that - there is a lot of bunting cupcaking going on in the MadHouse.

EustaciaVye Sun 26-Jul-09 16:27:07

Yay. DD can now (just about) ride her bike without stabilisers

TeaMonster Sun 26-Jul-09 16:46:39

Well done on the bike riding EV*

*Prof
Define bunting cupcakeness please

TeaMonster Sun 26-Jul-09 22:35:48

Night all - I am hoping for a better nights sleep, than the last couple.
