Morning scatty

scattyspice Wed 02-Sep-09 08:31:45

Today:

soft play (running out of ideas now hmm)
declutter hall
whats for tea hmm
laundry

EHM glad you had a good holiday. Good luck with all that washing!

MC I love stationary too!

Have fun all.

Morning wendy what are you up to today?

wendyhappysmile Wed 02-Sep-09 08:34:47

Off to soft play this morning as weather not looking good. am feeling very tired too and a bit under the weather myself metaphorically speaking!
So, to do:
still rest of home bless to do
parcel something up to a friend
painting hedgehogs with dc with leaves (tried it, Tea? I'll let you know!)
Perhaps go to MIL's - we are having a bit of a silent feud atm. I think even she has noticed my silence as left a msg on answerphone saying she was free and at home today - unheard of. It's a long story and I think I am probably overreacting, I'll fill you in later!
have a good day everyone!

wendyhappysmile Wed 02-Sep-09 08:36:22

scatty that's funny - that looked like a conversation! Ditto the ideas for soft play!
MC Stationery - I love it too! I'm willing to bet every Flylady MNer loves it - I think it's part of our genetic makeup!

Morning all DH back to school Yipee! Back to normal services. House in a total mess and so it should be, kids needs to be with friends on the beach or a field, not waiting for mum to finish hoovering!
Ds's friend coming over for a play date all morning. Friend's mum will be running away for much deserved 'me' time. She took Ds last week for DH, I was at work!

Must give Ds breakfast and will be back later.

morning all,

raining here so sadly the washing that I did overnight is having to go on the radiators sad
loads of ironing to do
going to take the boys to soft play this afternoon
kitchen looks like a bombsite so am going to start there
DS1's bedroom looks like there has been a lego explosion overnight so after the kitchen we are going in there.

feeling a bit glum today so need to motivate myself.

Hi to all will come back and chat once the house isn't such a mess.

Just started making a list on paper but it is sooo long that it is frightening.

Children have gone back to school this morning [mixed feelings about this - but a small yippee followed by a sad sigh]

dd was dressed at 7.15 already to go shock
ds2 was in denial and started building a Hornby track from scratch at 7.00
ds1 insisted I write a letter to his teacher saying that no school work could be done at all, just chatting and reading (his wrist is in plaster)

waterbottles and so far empty knapsacks all sent with them. Can't find dd's heavy duty school shoes but luckily she had another pair of black ones which will do for today. [Minor panic]

Enjoy softplay Wendy and Scatty.
Simply - did you have a good camping holiday earlier - don't think I was posting thereabouts.
"Electric car" is full of wonderful collage ideas isn't it? I think ds2 might love doing a hedgehog of leaves too.
Where was your holiday EHM?
My childhood was spent picking blackberries, and eating enormous quantities of stewed blackberry and apple TM.

Anyway better press on and try and sort wheat from chaff listwise.

Hi again.

Lots of DC back to school and lots of flying happening it seems smile.

Not Here!

Been to IKEA (it seems to have doubled in size since i last went, walked for miles!)and soft play (DS a big fan, DD not keen). Back just in time to rescue washing from line.

soft play (running out of ideas now )done
declutter hall done
whats for tea *don't know*

BB after cup of tea.

leothelioness Wed 02-Sep-09 15:17:53

anyway just washed stain out of pillow and then went to tackle the washing machine. OMG I pulled back the seal and it was absolutely dire., no wonder I had been thinking the washing does not smell fresh and dsepite running a couple of hot washes. The house we have is rented so it is not my doing honestly (but ewwwwww).
I have posed a pic on my profile less me I am not being unreasonable when I say this is horrid.

wendyhappysmile Wed 02-Sep-09 16:24:53

yuk leo that sounds horrid indeed! Put a couple of cycles of bleach through the wash and scrub the seal - did you check the bit above the powder drawer for black mouldy stuff too?
hedgehog leaf prints done, stick it together tomorrow. Also did bubble painting too - messy but fun. Have assembled jungle adventure set for dc who are playing nicely (phew) for once. OMG DS is hard work these last few days, will NOT do as he is asked, just downright naughty!
having a cuppa

Starbear Wed 02-Sep-09 16:39:17

Leo seen worse blush How do you get rid of the black mouldy stuff? Because our machine is in a very small room ha ha (cupboard really) it has no ventilation so the black mould is there. Tried bleach without success!
load W/M done and in dryer
clean bathroom done
Clean & tidy front room blush
menu plan & shopping list *done]
lunch done but badly guest kid didn't like baked beans and the potatoes didn't cooking in time (too much MN)

folding clothes done
shopping done
