Hello again ALL

Back from the family week away to Whitby. Had a great if exhausting time.

Have mountains of washing to do and, Oh joy, the washer has forgotten what to do shock It's just not spinning

TeaMonster Sat 22-Aug-09 16:02:07

Collected Tamiflu, but after discussions with our neighbour who is a GP and a dad of four boys under 8 one of who has CF we are not giving it to the boys.

scattyspice Sat 22-Aug-09 19:05:47

Oh no mad, I hope the boys are ok. You are probably right not to give Tamiflu. Sorry Wendy is poorly too. I thought that DD and I were getting it but we seem to be improving.
grouchy glad you had a good holiday, Dam that washer!
star shame you had to bale out dam that rain!
EHM happy holiday.

Dh is gamly fitting new doors through out the house. This morning we've beek making scones and this aft we all went to local antique/reclaimation shops to hunt for door stuff. I had a long conversation with DS about Kama (a celestial star chart hmm), not sure if he got it I need some Power Rangers references.

Hi all*
you are right to avoid the Tamiflu imo too. Thinking of you all lots.
Prof sure some wine will perk you up!
grouchy hope washer is working - seems washers are conspiring against everyone this week!
Star hope your veg crusade went well. I did the same today with a pasta sauce!
Watching X factor trashy TV it's great!
Feeling rubbish still but paracetamol keeping me together. Planning an early night tonight.
Sleep well everyone.

Starbear Sat 22-Aug-09 20:23:33

The theme for this month I think is coping with flu, exhausted from family holidays and laundry. We are already planning next years holiday. Ratatouille went down well. Roast Chicken for Sunday. Pasta on Monday. Pumpkin soup Tuesday Wednesday. Top of my head menu planning. Can't do better than that as it always a changes with us! Have a good night everyone

Tortoise Sat 22-Aug-09 22:02:41

Wolfcub Sun 23-Aug-09 16:14:59

Afternoon all

tea I hope the boys feel better soon
grouchy you are welcome to coke and use our washer if you need to
We have had a nice weekend with the nephews
Did loads of cleaning yesterday morning, not that you would know it now

Whilst da has slept in our bed this afternoon we have tidied his room and sorted out the too small clothes and put them away. We have also converted his cot into a bed after he managed to climb out of his cot three times last night

grouchyoscar Sun 23-Aug-09 16:28:07

Ah, uniform, only got a week to work out what is needed

Oh, hello

Mad We had a great time with you and the minimads. Ed loved it. Hope all is as well as poss in the Madhouse.

Last night the new neighbours had a house warming party. Clan Grouchy participated for a short time but wimped out and went to bed early blush Didn't get time to log on

Today, DH thought it was the best opportunity to put Ed's new bed together. I was in charge of holding tools/supporting things/fetching and carrying. hmm The bed is up, made and looks great, it's really opened his room up and he has more usable space. I was also in charge of the clearing up and all that. Bit shattered now.

Washer is on the blink. Next door have done a load for me and MIL has done 3. Still quite a lot to do and I will get the repair man out to the pesky blighter tomorrow. Weather has been fine enough to dry quite a bit.

Got to go and find homes for his cuddlies and his underbed storage boxes. But cuppa first grin

Makingchanges Sun 23-Aug-09 16:38:44

Can I join you. I have lurked on this thread for weeks - but never got round to posting. I log on every day as you guys motivate me to clean my house (sometimes)

I have one DD and I've just become a SAHM - However I am also doing a couple of Uni courses and volunteering in a couple of schools each week as I intend to go into teaching.

My DH would wecome me to become more efficient on the housecleaning front and I have tried fly before but sadly failed.

Being proactive and managing things would be great - I feel like I'm constantly juggling and in the end nothing gets done
