Oh EHM its 1 thing after another at the moment sad. I hope today goes smoothly.

wolf sorry you're having a stressful time at work (and home). I felt like this alot when my ds was the age your ds is. I hope you can work something out.

I am very tired today. DS wants to go swimming again but dd doesn't (she wants to go to the park). I may have to nogotiate.

wolf sorry things are so stressful{{{hugs}}}} I don't know how you do both you have my full admiration.

scatty thats a tough one, can you do park first then swimming or is that just too much? It would be for mesmile for ellie it would be a breeze until tea time then I would suffer. NOt the relaxing option you would want though?

MUST GET ON! (am shouting at myselfhmm)

things are looking up-phoned launderette. no machines available at moment. Asked how much for a service wash £7.60 per machine they wash, dry & fold. Which was my next option. Then did search & found this company They will collect all my washing including bedding tomorrow morning at 830am. Wash, dry & iron & delivery when we return from holiday! For £6 per kiloshock So at moment whats in washing basket doesn't even weigh a kilo including 1 large towel. So should have no more than 3 kilos I am thinking with bedding, clothes & towels. Yipiee!!!!!!

Called sols he will chase buyers solicitor & call back.

Hi all,
Not posted in a while as working lots and out with little one rest of the time and housework inbetween that.

Read posts often for inspiration.

EHM, know how you feel my washer broke. Just got it fixed today- plastic stuck in the pipe. It's so annoying when it breaks, thats twice this yr. Lucky I got extended warranty.

Have a lot of washing to catch up on so that's my main priority today. Also going to go through DS clothes and pack a bag for charity shop.


EHM Fri 21-Aug-09 14:59:52

Tea hope mini mads are on the mend soon. make sure you take care of you-as we all know very exhausting when they are not well.

Well I decided no body has died or hurt. so there is nothing I can do if we don't exchange today. THe WM will get fixed when we get back. none of this is life threatening- except for the solicitor! I think solicitor is now avoiding me!

Went shopping with Ellie bought a few bits for hols. Retail therapy always helpsgrin

THis time tomorrow we will have just landed so I've focusing on that. I know I am very lucky to be going on holiday & really appreciate the fact that DH works very hard so we can have these things. He needs the holiday very much.

god I've gone off rambling againblush

fairybubbles hello

A holiday is just what you need EHM.

Glad you had a good time with Grouchy Tea hope she is enjoying her holiday too.

The park won as dd and me still under the weather so neither of us in the mood for more swimming. Ds didn't mind. Had a lovely day though, went to the park, then walked up to our local 2ndhand bookshop and nearby cafe then back to the park. I pointed out the house I lived in with 6 friends just after i left college, DS thought this would be fantastic 9sharing a house with your mates and no parents!) I told him it was wink.

Dh DIYing, bbl.

EHM Fri 21-Aug-09 17:20:31

Boys have swine flu - I have rung Groucy to tell her. I am feeling really bad.

We will be collecting the anti-virals in the morning and making a decision on wether to use them or not.

I have been shopping and stocked up on yummys.

We look like we are in for a long night sad
