Hiya everyone,

I am going to do ...... nothing today
Seriously I have an TMA due next week and I have not even read the stuff plus I am supposed to be doing a home experiment with potato mush and hydrogen peroxide also for this damn report so the kitchen should be in a delightful state when I am done.

OK so today reading and saturday will be potato mush day as the kids can go out with dh.

leothelioness Thu 27-Aug-09 08:48:25

<sneaks in> can I come back???
The holidays are nearly over and I have to get to grips with the house and routines again.

Wolfcub Thu 27-Aug-09 10:32:29

morning all

some git smashed my car window overnight and damaged the door panel. The window will cost me 75 but I can't afford to have the door panel fixed as that will be another 125 and a loss of my no claims bonus which I just cannot afford at the moment I am so angry this is why I hate school holidays. Sodding little brats have nothing better to do than get drunk in churchyards and vandalise other peoples property

been to hospital and have phoned police, insurance company and autoglass. Waiting for autoglass to come and fix the window now. DS is being a destructive little monster.

UP and down with crockery, make cuppa
Wash and meds

Empty DW
Put away
Tidy away

Make beds
Sort out drying washing
Bribe Ed into doing some writing work

I feel like I've done loads and loads but probably haven't. I want to take Ed to tghe bridleway and see if the blackberries are ready.

Why do I feel so unable to tackle anything?

Afternoon my lovleies

Welcome back greyskull I missed you too

Wolf little shits angry

sag and Wolf Tis the time of the year, harvest so "prepare the feilds and scater the good seed on the ground" all join in my rousing rendition blush DH from farming stock, so we just dont smell it anymore [double blush]

Waves to everyone else

Been to aldi, boys were remarkably well behaved, so we had fish and chip for lunch and then been to the park for an hour before coming home.

As soon as we got here WW3 breaks out, so have deposited each outside with an icecream with monkey blood (rasberry sauce) and sprinkles grin

I am having an iced tea and then will unpack and put shopping away.

scattyspice Thu 27-Aug-09 14:31:08

wolf What a pain about the car. I hope you get some peace now smile.

Hi greyskull we're all upside down on here anyway smile.

sag poo

tea Hope the dc pick up soon and you can get out.

Back from museum (dd insisting on calling it nightinthemuseum lol) and library. Seem to have a mystery lib book from somewhere hmm. Bumped into lots of people we knew in town smile.

DS has stuck his post cards in his scrap book and was eventually persuaded to write a sentence.

Grouchy I had all these plans to do educational type stuff over the summer too hmm.

Have started washing the sofa covers. Hope the rain holds off.

grouchyoscar Thu 27-Aug-09 15:56:27

Wolf Rubbish about the car. It's just not fair at all

Been baking. Done Suzywongs chocolate brownies which are fab and some fruit scones which are flat (bah)

Ed just ignoring me, other than checking on the baking and feasting from the brownie bowl

leothelioness Thu 27-Aug-09 16:09:04

damn I have just done something to my thums I hurt like hell for a few minutes and now is pink, stiff and swollen around the upper joint with a small dark lump under the surface of the skin on the plam side on the join. The weird thing is I am not even sure what I did to it I was just carring a couple fo plate and nearly dropped them as the pain when through it.

TeaMonster Thu 27-Aug-09 16:11:45

Glued DS2's play Sax
Mario kart Wii with DS1 - I lost blush

Both boys need a bath tonight

Focast is for rain, so we are taking neice to soft play. The boys are going to miss her as she is off to Disney World on Monday envy

ByThePowerOfGreyskull Thu 27-Aug-09 17:22:14

So a big Hi to everyone, a few names I don't recognise.

started with the sink, the rest of the kitchen looks like there has been a riot but the sink is done.
Have started on DS2's bedroom, have taken out all the nappy change stuff now we don't need it anymore, rearranged his furniture and all of a sudden it looks like a little boy's room and not a nursery.
However all that stuff is now on the landing waiting for me to decide what to do with it.

Going to do some more in the kitchen later but for now I need to finish decorating a Christening cake that is being picked up tomorrow.

Hope to make a bit more progress tomorrow smile
