In order to give you all a good laugh - I saw the title and thought "Brill - Ruby's here!" (as I am a big fan of hers) and I skim read the thread and then clicked on the topic to find her on yesterday's thread (are you able to keep up with my nonsensical rambling so far?) and then I suddenly twigged that it was Ruby Tuesday that was being referred to not the FLYer Ruby.

I think I'll now hang out the washing, get showered and dressed, go to work and come back this afternoon. You might just have managed to stop sniggering at me by then.



TeaMonster Tue 08-Sep-09 08:58:05

Simply - Ruby has never left, she is just a cake stealing flyer mow

ISimplyCantPostFreelyAnyMore Tue 08-Sep-09 09:38:15

Ah! A cake stealing FLYer eh? <<Hmmmm. Puts index finger to chin in a "trying to think" pose>> I shall look out for her. Thank you TM.

While I'm here, do you want the good news?

I'm going to be on this thread much more often now! I won't be working (apart from the odd voluntary thing or two) for a while so I'm going to be free to give the house a good de-cluttering!

Right - off to work for my last day!

TeaMonster Tue 08-Sep-09 09:46:23

What is a FLYer? Is this a thread for ticking off chores done/chores to be done?

Starbear Tue 08-Sep-09 10:14:22

Morning all*
We are just trying to get our chores/ house in order using a system designed by Marla Cilley in her book Sink Reflections or webiste flylady. You don't need to buy the book or look at her website. It really just is post your chores and share the race with other people until the day is done and some/all or none of the chores are done. At various breaktimes come back chat or tick off your list smile

Starbear Tue 08-Sep-09 10:31:24

Argh - no time to read posts yet - I have a mountain of work to do today. DD is due to go back to nursery in less than an hour and she is dillydallying over lunch and DH has put her nursery cardigan somewhere that I can't find.

I'm just marking the thread so I can come back to it when I've dropped DD off and I'm hopefully a little calmer. I really don't like first days back. Hope they all went ok for those whose were back yesterday - will find out later when I catch up.

Starbear Tue 08-Sep-09 13:29:17

Afternoon all Cup of tea time smile
Prof& ActingNormal Hope DD3 & DS have a lovely day!
TM to answer yesterday's question, yes, we will move him if the vacancy comes up & put his name down on the waiting list for other good schools in the area. DH is a teacher and strongly believes in peer group pressure and wants Ds's mates to be positive.

ActingNormal hi and welcome, we are a friendly lot on here and all help each other out during life's many crises smile
Tea thanks for album recommendations. Haven't heard the Eels, will try! I am currently all Elbow-ed out - do you like them?
Star you have been busy! Nice pic!
Prof Don't think there could be another Ruby other than you honey. The orginal and best!
Simply enjoy your last day at work!
scatty photos in album - been on my to do list for about 5 years! grin
swan grin at your aunt's hyphen thesis. Does she have a double-barrelled surname! grin
hello to everyone

Well, I managed with just a lump in my throat this morning. It was hard to be upset when DS was just SO excited. First in the queue to go in and jumping around with glee and joy. It was hard arriving home from toddler group and not picking him up. (You all know that my house looks out on the school at the front, don't you?! It's me, road, school!) DD is asleep and the house is so quiet, but then again I am thinking that it will be 3 pm very soon and I haven't done much at all in the way of jobs and it will be picking up time! It certainly goes quickly, doesn't it!

wendyhappysmile Tue 08-Sep-09 13:45:21

Where's galen btw? Have I missed something, is she ok?

scattyspice Tue 08-Sep-09 14:13:23

Back again.

simply sounds like a good lifestyle change smile.
grouchy have a good night out smile.
leo poor ds. It sounds quite difficult for him sad.
star georgeous boy smile, looks very smart!
ActingNormal The 1/2 day thing is a bit tricky isn't it?
prof Of course Ruby is you (I still think of you as Ruby and teamonster as Madhouse, I'm not good with change).
MC the first days back have caught us all out lol.
wendy hope ds has a good 1st day. Living opposite school sounds ideal smile. Galen seems to be missing in action. I know she had a lot happening. I hope she is ok.

ds to school done
house bleugh - dusting to do
dd to school done
banking *to do*
photos in album done
collect dc
whats for tea?? pasta
ds to gymnastics (I think).

Had a busy morning baking and sticking photos in album with dd. Photos in album has only come about because I had to unpack the book case for fireplace fitting. All the photos and empty albums were stuffed in bookcase blush. Now have family album and 1 each for DS and DD smile.


grouchyoscar Tue 08-Sep-09 14:16:05

I've done the home blessing and completed my admin list. Other than that, I've done very little. I'm a bit bored but I'm rested

Got to collect GOjr in half an hour so I'll read the new IKEA cataloge that's been sent through the letterbox hmm

wendyhappysmile Tue 08-Sep-09 14:39:19

Wish I had an Ikea catalogue! I need a trip.
scatty I am envy at your albums, would need to print out lots of photos, ours are all just on the PC/CD
