Hello, back from holiday/state visit to relatives in Berlin. All in all, a success grin
We had borrowed a fantastic flat from a friend of dh which was right in centre of Berlin - the only drawback a mite too small for our rather lively bunch, so we had serious problems getting everyone to go to sleep in same room. In fact dh and I seemed to spend ZERO time alone together, which was a bit sad.
But we did all the lovely trips we wanted to do, lake, zoo, Reichstag, several family dinners, Potsdam. Plus flat was full of wonderful history books and thrillers (in English as well as German)so I know now all about German history - though nil language [

EHM Fri 07-Aug-09 09:20:24

wolfhave good day
scatty did you have nice break away?
TM still very wet here too-although dry in the fact we haven't had rain for a few hours. Ellie attended a party at our local softplay yesterday-so will give SP a miss today.

Just dropped off Sister's partner at train station he arrived late last night having been away on business. Sis & nephew currently visiting my Aunty in Jersey. So he is staying for the weekend. Kindly babysitting Ellie tomorrow night so we can have a night out!

right off to finish my banana on toast

EHM Fri 07-Aug-09 09:21:14

swan sounds very exciting-x postsmile

littleboyblue Fri 07-Aug-09 09:25:47

swan Glad you had a good time.

I've not been here this week, my mn time has been taken up on my post-natal thread and the weaning section talking about BLW and finger foods.
I am still FLYing though and my routines are still strong.

Ds1's birthday party was a huge success, the children all played nicely and were very well behaved.
Ds1 got spoilt rotten. Far too many pressies.

I haven't done much detailed cleaning though. But am going to try to make up for it today. I have already spent 15mins in airing cupboard (organising, nit hiding from dc's grin) and hope to do anther 3 15 min sessions in hallway cupboards today, but we shall see. Each little bit I do is more than I have done, so it's all good.

Hope you all have a good day.

Tortoise Fri 07-Aug-09 09:27:47

Morning all.

I have the dentist in 2 hours. Filling sad.
My Brother is coming to sit with DC.

This afternoon i hope to drag kids out on a dog walk! Lovely and sunny here for once.

scattyspice Fri 07-Aug-09 09:40:32

swan Hi we've missed you. Berlin sounds great (if exhausting).
EHM we had a great holiday thanks smile lots of beaches, hills and picnics! Night out with dh sounds good (long over due here, must try and get a babysitter soon).
LBB hope the weaning is going ok.
Tort Good luck at the dentist.

DD has negotiated a trip to Aquarium so off in a mo.


Tortoise Fri 07-Aug-09 13:32:12

Dentist all over and done with for a couple of weeks! Got to go back for more work, think he said crown on the tooth which he did a root canal on a while ago.
My mouth tastes horrible at the moment.

my message got cut short, (you were probably relieved about that grin

but have been out all day
returned covered in mud tra la laing from

singing lessons
walk home

unfortunately holiday laundry is the same as when I left it, probably whiffier than ever

now laundered kids are doing hama beads with a friend on kitchen table - who has brought an enormous choc cake with her (gulp - more laundry envisaged)

worst aspect of returning home is that teenage cat sitter has left door from kitchen open (my instructions were obviously too many and too confusing)and some enemy cat has sprayed house sad.

Well done on dentist Tort
hello everyone else, sorry no individual messages

EHM Fri 07-Aug-09 16:36:14

swan oh no cat spraying.
tort hope you can sort out mickey. you are brave going to dentist.
dylsmum where did you go for hols-hope you had nice time?
lblgood to read ds1's party went well.

prof extra child?
scatty holiday sounds perfect.

have done done washing & hung out at the first sight of sun.
cleaned bathroom
general tidy throughout
baked with ellie blueberry/banana cake
ate lunch & then far too much cake!
snuggled on couch & both had napblush
cleaned windows inside/out upstairs-removed massive bird poo from outside of ellie's bedroom window.

spoke to estate agent regarding exchange date-hopefully before end of month.

swanriver Fri 07-Aug-09 16:36:49

Coda - hope your determination pays off with dd Scatty, we are trying hard too with ds2 who is the ultimate pest first thing. Today I put him back him his bedroom at 6.00 but I did have to corral him in there and lie down in his bed with him just to keep him from waking everyone.
Our new winning bedtime read is the Naughtiest Girl in the School by Blyton, they seem gripped by the horribleness of her behaviour grin

Tortoise Fri 07-Aug-09 17:26:23

Have vets appointment for 11.20 tomorrow.
DS's have just gone to their Dads. smile Will take Mickey and DD's out for a walk in a bit.

scattyspice Fri 07-Aug-09 17:43:28

Swan - I have given up. Dh clearly can't cope (the man has no stamina where sleep deprivation is concerned) sad. At least last night he went on the sofa bed rather than me and DD.

Tort - hope vet can help.

EHM - wow, exciting re exchange of contracts.

Dyl - hi, glad holiday was good smile

Had a good afternoon, went to local park and dc joined in a game with a whole bunch of children, they all ran wild for 2 hrs! I sat in the sun and chatted smile.

I am negotiating a shopping trip tomorrow with dh (ALONE).

swanriver Fri 07-Aug-09 17:55:46
