I am going to make the most of the month with just DS2 before he is off to Preschool.

TM, Will you get to see him at lunchtime for first week or two? It helps it a bit, as it still feels nicely pre-schoolish timewise...

I felt very bleugh when they went back to school this time, but then I remembered I was actually going to see ds2 at lunchtime for a little run (due to wrist/no exercise at school)and cheered up (in fact felt slightly cross that had lunchtime interruption blush)
I suppose its just that feeling that they are in someone else's jurisdiction all day which is weird. BUT can have its advantages -headspace wise...

Felt terribly sad in second week that twins went, although quite phegmatic about ds1 1 have to admit. I used to keep stealing back ds2 throughout reception and picking him up at lunchtime - very annoying for teachers I'm sure.

Anyway, enough warbling,

Wedding emotional whirlwind, but great fun too, dancing till 3.00 am on the Downs in a tent. And entirely vegetarian - which caused trouble because my brother is a great [fusspot]cook and thought roasted veg weren't done properly and too much thyme in something so was getting stressed instead of enjoying the sitdown dinner. But 120 family and friends bound to be stressful really! Kids were so charming, really enjoying running around in their smart outfits and joining in bestman's speech with Narnia lightsabre! And then a big family picnic next day on the leftovers.

Still feel slightly drunk possibly.

Loads of stuff to do today, painter away till tomorrow, so can sort things out smile

Hi all
back to school for us today and dd3 starts tomorrow. Very strange feeling, but I am looking at college courses. My babies are growing up! whimper

And my fridge is busted - so any suggestions for food that does not require refrigeration welcome!

Comforting hugs for all those missing thier little ones.

grouchyoscar Mon 07-Sep-09 11:09:59

Just been to get GOjr's rugby essentials, scrum cap, body armour and gum shields. More initial outlay therehmm

Taking it steady until I have to go to work. The blessing will wait

TeaMonster Mon 07-Sep-09 11:24:44

Swan He stars full time strsight away and I had to leave him at the door, for one of the nursery staff (who have no children this week) to take him to show him where his peg etc is.

That way the children all settle without any of the parents getting upset or anything.

He was fine

DS2 keeps asking when we are going to collect DS1, but is having great fun playing with his big brothers lego starwars whcih is off limites really!!

GO Doesnt sound like you are taking things easy to me

Starbear Mon 07-Sep-09 12:25:33

TM Mine starts full day from tomorrow too.
Just popped to catch-up. Swan What a fab weekend. We went to the town carnival yesterday very laid-back and fun! Going to drop them an e-mail to say thank you!
Prof glad you enjoyed Paris. I'm looking at college courses as well, mainly computing blush and on how to help your kid learn.
MUST go now and do those bloody labels. I had too much wine yesterday to be bothered blushagain

Ds started playschool today as well. Dd was as worried about me leaving him as I was, luckily he just walked straight in and started playing with his friends. I held it together until I got outside when i shed a tear and then spent the morning round my friends as i couldn't face going home to an empty flat! blush He loved it, came home and fell straight asleep on the sofa!

I now need to update the control journal to the new routines.
wendy enjoy your last day.
Tea it's so hard isn't it handing over responsibility to someone else.
leo relax and enjoy the peace.

Hello to everyone else I need to go and do something

Jas Mon 07-Sep-09 14:40:06

Had to pop in and tell you....I got my first FLy-Lady Christmas countdown emails todayshock

scattyspice Mon 07-Sep-09 18:17:19

Oh no jas surely not shock.

Just popping on as whole back to school thing has got me in a spin too! It wasn't helped by workman arriving to fit fireplace at 8.15 this morning. Took ds back to school, roamed the streets with DD all morning (to stay out of workman's way). Quick lunch then 1st day (well 1/2 day) at school for dd. I was bursting with pride walking up to school with her in her (huge) school uniform and a bit lost walking home without her. Anyway, both dc had a great time at school and we have a lovely fireplace.

BB tomorrow.

Tea and all others with dc at school for the first time - how did they enjoy it?
My DS is SO excited! DH is going in late tomorrow to savour the movement.
Just finished watering the greenhouse, two more cucumbers today and some tomatoes - makes all the hard work worthwhile. Courgettes are on their way out now, though, picked 6 tonight but the rest are tiny and the plants looking a bit ill.
Right, not sure what to do tonight. Been to yoga at 5pm (fab!) and just eaten tea, so can't think about bed for a couple of hours - tidy up and slob on sofa?!
see you all tomorrow

swanriver Mon 07-Sep-09 21:59:37

He looks so handsome in his red jumper TM!
Glad your dd's day was alright too, Scatty.

We had a calm afternoon, with violin practise and homework miraculously done when I asked smile
Dh is totally exhausted, so tired he didn't even want supper.
I have tidied playroom, kitchen, recycling and done two loads of washing. But am also feeling tres unmotivated. Work starts tomorrow again, so then I will be complaining about that no doubt hmm

Starbear - hairstyles bah - given up on them now and go to the hairdresser for the pleasure of a head massageblush although they will insist on cutting my hair as well.
I'm sure you will look very glam at school gate.
Wendy yes my punctuation is flagging. I had an aunt who did an entire thesis on the use of the hyphen in the English Language. She is now in local politics.
