Morning all!

Washing is the theme for today here too LOL

other than that trying to do some room rescues and get routines going again...

Also waiting for heating engineer to sort hot water...(dismal cold shower yesterday LOL)

Feeling a bit low today....I seem to have a sink after stressful times , was the same when we got back from Ireland.... seem to go on autopilot to cope in the midst of it, then sink afterwards. Also worrying about cost of car and lack of money LOL ..... contemplating going back to work , which is also stressing me out...
....still will try to keep busy and motivate myself as that normally helps pull me round....

Right will go crack on BBL grin

TeaMonster Tue 25-Aug-09 11:12:15

Sag pmsl over delivery. A kind friend got some milk for me

DS2 is curled up on the soda in the living room asleep - ah

Boys beds are stripped and bedding in washer. I need some cheep blue or white jersey or flannel fitted single sheets, as dont have enough now DS2 is in a big bed.

DS1 is being parented by the Wii!!!!

I am having a cup of tea before cracking on again

leothelioness Tue 25-Aug-09 11:35:40

Hiya TeaMonster thanks for the welcome

Sagacious Tue 25-Aug-09 11:59:08

Welcome leo

My done list:

Washed and dressed
Dishwasher filter cleaned then loaded and running
Off to village shop for missing milk
Back home for much needed cup of tea
Spoke to friend re taxi for this evening (in the sticks so very scarce her dh is a taxi driver)

Um thats it

[clutches straws]

Hi again. Lunchtime smile.

Somehow I started a new thread and then posted on the old one hmm. Here is list:
email holiday pictures to various people
declutter bedroom

tea I will attempt to link to audiobook. I have now finished it - feeling very tranquil smile.

galen I am also prone to a touch of post traumatic stress after a crisis. I have developed a fear of driving long distances alone with DC after my spectacular breakdown in Birminham in Feb (DH also has a fear as he had to come and rescue us). I do think you have had more than your fair share of upheavals this summer though, you need a period of stability to get your breath back. Don't contemplate work yet if you can possibly help it.

leo hi - well done with the list

saga LOL at the non delivery

BBL after work.

TheProfiteroleThief Tue 25-Aug-09 12:31:36

scatty Am very interested in that book, its the one religion that sort of makes sense to me (iykwim)

TeaMonster Tue 25-Aug-09 15:33:05

Afternoon all

Scatty looks goof, will have to see if we have any spare cash

I have

Washed the childrens bedding, hung out
changed the boys bed
Put another wash on DS2 had an accident
rang GP's - waiting for a call back as I think DS2 has a chest infection
Rang MIL
arranged for DH to come home so I can take DS1 to swimming lesson

made homemade lasagne for dinner (I need more mustard powder)
Sorted garlic butter for dinner too

Just having a break. I am shattered

scattyspice Tue 25-Aug-09 15:45:15

tea don't overdo it.

sag and tea I didn't know the first thing about Buddhism (I only bought the book because I subscribe to Audible for DS Famous Five audio books and I get free credits so clicked on that one). But it is lovely. Part anger management part anxiety management and part child rearing with a little bit of spirituality thrown in smile.

Done - nothing.

Hello All and welcome tro Leo

Been busy here and out all day. I took Ed to buy some new school jumpers and got waylaid by Wilkinson's and the new Poundland blush Also got Ed's huge mane cropped and my hair cut too.

Ed was so very good today I let him have a happy meal lunch. He was so very happy with that blush. Also got him some Playmobil people (he's gone mad for those ATM) and some replacement (easier for mum to manage) poster paints. Now he's fussing with his rocks he got on holiday (Eek shock)

DH at the football tonight so at least the house won't get messed up hmm
