Hi Wendy What are these Hedgehog thingies you speak of?
I would get out of the house, anywhere, even in the rain. We had heavy rain yesterday looks okay this morning. It really feels like autumn already sad

wendyhappysmile Thu 03-Sep-09 09:34:41

Hi star nothing exciting, just off mister Maker. Paint leaves and press down on paper to print shapes then leave to dry. Cut out leaf shapes and arrange and stick on a piece of paper into a hedgehog shape with a cone shaped nose. DC enjoyed the leaf printing bit yesterday and are itching to get on with assembling the hedgehogs!
You're right, need to get out and about. Library closed on Thursdays, otherwise might just do a walk in the rain lol

scattyspice Thu 03-Sep-09 09:42:28

Morning star and wendy. Raining here too! Where has the summer gone?

buy food
mission hmm

I think we're going to walk up to the shops in the rain (its not heavy atm). BBL

swanriver Thu 03-Sep-09 09:42:39

move furniture into centre of ds2's room
shake out tablecloth
put a wash in

dcs to school on time, but routine needs to be completely restablished ie: making beds, waterbottle filling, getting dressed as we are ALL OVER THE PLACE (well I am) Dd is playing up again, ds1 is being grimy adolescent refusing to wash, ds2 is driving us mad talking about Hornby at 7.00am and trying to set up electrical circuits and transformers in our bedroom shock

Scatty Ds1's plaster comes off on 28th with just a week to spare before he goes on an Outward Bound Course with school, so I hope he'll be able to still do all the climbing stuff. Very simple break - going to doctor this afternoon with hm to assess.

swanriver Thu 03-Sep-09 09:45:57

x posts everyone! Just trying to think of witty rejoinder to wella wella has wasted 5 mins.

TeaMonster Thu 03-Sep-09 10:05:20

Morning all

I am a bit hmm this morning. Mother is compalining that when DH is home that she is supluss to requirements - very true shock

DH is parenting in a lax manner - more smoothies than I allow, more screen time than I allow - all making me out to be the bad mummy angry I love him and I tried to explain.

We have loads to do today, so will crack on

Jas Thu 03-Sep-09 10:33:39

Kids are back at school, and I need to get back to FLYing.

I considered the babystep thread, but would rather stick with you guys tbh.
Tday is crisis cleaning all day, then in the loft this evening.

Tomorrow I will start routines and lists.

Sorry not replying to everyone else.....I've lost track and don't want t spend all morning reading to catch upblush

Starbear Thu 03-Sep-09 11:01:40

I have just sprayed the desk and computer with tea angry sneezed while drinking!

grouchyoscar Thu 03-Sep-09 11:03:10

Wolfcub Thu 03-Sep-09 13:42:41

afternoon all

just on my lunch break - actually getting one for once

bed made (promptly unmade again by ds)
quick tidy in liveing room
shirt ironed for me and one for dp
wm unloaded reloaded and on
dry washing folded, wet washing hung up
ds taken for first day back at nursery - not a happy boy at all

Late night at work tonight but dp has purchased dinner so I don't have to cook. Will just have to move tonights tea to another day on my menu plan!

grouchy let me know what the cookies are like, I have the book so may have a go at making if they are yummy. We are still eating the hob-nobs I made on Sunday.

grouchyoscar Thu 03-Sep-09 14:16:25

Hello, I'm back, only breifly as I have to pick up in 45

Wolf can I have the recepie for the hob-nobs please. here is Allegra's cookie idea. I've not done it yet as I seem to have run out of butter hmm

I have made a slab of Rocky Road Crunch tho. It's cooking in the fridge at the moment

Ed seems to love his new teacher which is great. He seems like a nice guy.

Right, off again

ByThePowerOfGreyskull Thu 03-Sep-09 14:19:18

anyway crocs washed
bathmats in the wash

wendyhappysmile Thu 03-Sep-09 15:32:00

hi everyone
still in the house, had to wait in for a delivery (my fab new phone!! Can't wait to get a minute to phone to activate it then play with it later!) now it's so windy I can't be bothered to struggle outside! Not readjusted to this auutumn/winter weather yet, can't believe we go about a normal life in this wind and rain in the winter!
Done sticking and made lovely hedgehogs, and some weird sand art pictures, dc playing with toys but DS is so violent and loud he is doing my head in! He is leading DD astray, she is getting violent too. Think it will be a good thing for him to be back to school to occupy him! Fed up of feeling like I am failing with him, he is really pushing the boundaries.
EHM can't believe you still haven't exchanged, things rarely go to plan with houses, it's maddening. Hope you can keep it all together
grouchy cookies sound good, have they already featured on a programme? Didn't see this week's yet. What is the book like, wolf - lots of meaty recipes? Will have to see if library has it.
TM don't worry - dh will be back to work next week and all will be well! Life's too short to worry about it sometimes.
better go and talk to DS

scattyspice Thu 03-Sep-09 16:23:19

Glad Ed enjoying school Grouchy. How old are yours leo, school warm up sounds tricky! Is your ds 4 wendy? Mine was crazy at 4! (much saner now at 6).

I have been through the playroom like a dose of salts! Everything is in boxs so that they can find stuff. Just a small matter of keeping it that way though hmm.

Ironing done
laundry done
boxs done
mission done

Baked pots for tea smile.

Need to phone the very zen man who left a very calm message about Tai Chi smile(will wait until scooby doo finished as will spoil the atmoshphere!).
