he corners on monday.

Dp went out for a few drinks last night, said he'd be back at about 10:30pm but I'm sure I woke around 2am and he wasn't here hmm think he may be spending the rest of the day in bed envy

Prof Go for it, enjoy the holidays. grin

grouchyoscar Sat 01-Aug-09 09:26:28

Prof Whatever works for you grin You can pick it up in your own time.

Well last night was nice. Good company but the curry was a bit disappointing, I think I'm too used to my default choice of curry house.

It was 1992 all the way for me. I had a short skirt, black tights and my new floral DMs...I'm mid 30s not 18 FFS blush I looked good tho!

Off to liberate my Pearl Jam collection

Groucy Pmsl

I am just waking up - nice DH let me have a lie in.

Boys are being boys and just playing

Prof I have just got my letralag (off ebay) to do my school labels - thanks for the tip

No plans as such, there is an international riverside festival on, but the weather forcast is not good for today, so may do that tomorrow instead.

What every you do - Fly (said in a very sarcastic american voice)

morning all
Feeling kind os bleugh today.

Seem to be totally unable to sleep anymore despite increasing exhaustion, so another night with barely any sleep sad

grouchy sounds cool!!

prof I have similar feeling . Trying to keep house in order when occupied by 6 DC in the rain seems so futile LOL

TM yay for lie in . What is a letralag...think I may need one LOL

not sure what I'm doing today other than more endless washing of course....

Think I need another coffee BBL grin

morning all

this morning dp told me to stay in bed for hours because I had looked so ill for the last few days, he would look after ds and take him into town. Then he came and yelled at me for staying in bed angry sad

done - cleaned kitchen including fronts of wm, dw and oven and all small appliances, bin and sink

washing up done

milk bottles out

just doing meal plan and shopping list because I need a sit down and recover a bit before I move onto the living room. I am feeling quite unwell today [fed up emoticon]

prof I would leave it alone and enjoy the holiday, nobody ever died from having un-dusted shelves

grouchyoscar Sat 01-Aug-09 13:32:21

Plans to go shopping have been shelved due to crap weather so DH decided it was a good opportunity to move the bedroom around shock

He's been really helpful, moving a big bed (King size) and sorting out the positioning of drawers etc. I'll be doing the housework bits to finish off. The new layout looks great TBH

Looks like I'm getting the duster/vac/vinegar spray out and giving it a good blitz

Wolf Look after yourself, feel free to pop round with DS if you fancy a break

TeaMonster Sat 01-Aug-09 14:02:55

We are all soaking wet - we went into town and watched the fishing boats come and go adn watched the tide come in.

Had fish adn chips for lunch and decided to come home as DS2 was shivering despite it being quite warm - we were all wet though

galen this is letratag for iron on lables. I worked out it would be cheaper and easier than handwriting them, so now have to make some and iron them. Plus I can lable all my food jars - he he he

Boys are playing and DH is going to do some DIY. I may bake

Tortoise Sat 01-Aug-09 15:44:21

Bloody awful weather again today angry!

Wolf Take care of yourself. smile

Been shopping.
DD's played on wii.
Did some craft bits.
Both DD's did some reading to me and DD2 practised her tag words.

DD's have trashed the front room!

DD1's 1st wobbly tooth came out this morning. smileShe was very excited.

grouchyoscar Sat 01-Aug-09 16:48:19

scattyspice Sun 02-Aug-09 09:47:11

Morning Tea smile. Wow you have got the crafty bug! I have been inspired by the craft shops on holiday and another knitting book from the library, I'm knitting a hat at the mo.

I have decided to crack down on dds night time shennanigans over the holidays (6yrs without sleep is starting to get to me sad), so stand by for a very tired Scatty until she gets the idea.

park (don't fancy swimming)
sort out dcs clothes to make way for uniforms.


Tortoise Sun 02-Aug-09 09:57:50

Wow TM You have been busy crafting already. I only got up 30 mins ago! DD's let me have a lie in. grin
DS's are in the tent with my Brother.

Not sure what we are doing today, probably not much! Might try and drag them all kicking and screaming on a dog walk. smile

littleboyblue Sun 02-Aug-09 14:09:33

Hello all

Been pureeing most of the morning, when the boys let me. They are both so tired but are refusing to sleep, so I have put them both infront of a dvd hoping they'll drift off, but everytime ds1 gets close, he gets up to annoy ds2.
Might need a stiff drink later!
