Morning all

Dyls thanks for thread. Fingers crossed about the tyres.
littleboyblue dp being on nights must be a nihtmae trying to keep everything quiet.

Dp is back at work so now need to catch up on all the housework I haven't done whilst he's been at home for a week. The flat is in such a mess I don't know where to start! sad
Me and the dc's are off on holiday with my family on Friday, I'm abandning dp for a whole week to fend for himself. He can't even use the washing machine or cook for himself, he just wuldn't have survived a whole week with all my family though. I wasn't going to go as I feel guilty about abadonig dp but I would then feel guilty about denying the dc's a holiday with all their cousins etc. and I haven't seen my brother and family since christmas either way major guilt trip from me - permenant emotion atm!!

Anyway I'll be back later with a to do list.
Hope evryone has a good day with nice weather.

littleboyblue Mon 17-Aug-09 07:56:56

Shannara Don't feel guilty about leaving dp for a week. He is a grown man who is more than capable of looking after himself grin he may suprise you.

My downstairs neighbour has asked if ds1 can go down to her flat o play/watch a dvd with her ds. I've said yes, but am a bit nervous as I don't really know her. I see her all the time and we always stop for a little chat. She is a school teacher. The family is quite religious (JW) and I know ds1 will be fine. It'll mean I get some time with ds alone.
If I don't let ds1 go, I'll never let him visit anyone elses house wil I? And he is only downstairs...........I just can't help thinking maybe she should have invited me down aswell for the first time? Or AIBU?

aww dyls I will miss the vvsmile thanks for the thread. good luck with tyres.
lbl good luck with your list-it must be hard when dp is sleeping day time.

Starbear Mon 17-Aug-09 09:04:57

Lbl Don't worry, maybe she's flying as well and her Ds having your Ds over will help her get on with things. I use to do this with my neighbours boys. So sad they moved (still keep in touch)
shann I bet he doesn't even think about going near the washing machine. My DH says I've de-skilled him over the years ha! ha!
Back with a list

Starbear Mon 17-Aug-09 09:13:21

While looking at the photos in the past 5 years, I'm going to make a promise that I wear make-up at the weekend and on days out. When I've got a little concealer around the eyes, mascara & lippy I look Soooo much better and I would be happier about putting the photo in the album.
So here goes.
Dress and wash
Wash windows (didn’t do it yesterday)
Make beds
Outside the house:-
Millets return batteries angry they gave me the wrong ones even with the item in my hand!
Radio to repair shop
Film to Jessop to put on disc
Photo albums
No lunch or dinner to make for others Yippe!
Have a good day smile

Prof DS1's lessons start again tomorrow PM
LBB Hope you manage OK with the DH on nights and I wouldnt worry about DS with the JW - they are lovley familes in my humble opinion
Star Well done on the photos, job and Make up habbitt

Well - I have to admit that I crashed the car on Sat sad I was going down the sea front and it just failed to stop - I was braking, but there was sand under my wheels - pants, pants, pants - I went into the back of a taxi. We are all fine, but car isnt.

Also someone took my side trim off and handle in Ikea yesterday. I am a bit fed up, espeically as they left no details and it needs to be an insurance job. I am plucking up the courage to ring them.

They are going to think I am the mad woman I am.

littleboyblue Mon 17-Aug-09 13:32:21

TM Glad everyone was ok after your accident. Could have been really nasty.

Ds1 has been to neighbours. When I got back from Tesco, the boy came out and asked if ds1 could go in, so I said yes while I unpacked shopping and fed ds2. I left him there for an hour and the mum said he was fine and seemed to enjoy himself and that she'd have him down there anytime! Yay!!!! I told her she could have him all the time grin

Well, meant to be going to the park to meet some friends. Time was 1pm, but ds1 is just finishing lunch and they both look like they need to sleep, so now deciding whether or not to bother. Dp is up as he got in at 2am, but we could all go for a nap......or go to the park......hmm
