Good morning TeamMonster, Starbear and Scatty and everyone else

Thank you again for the kind comments yesterday.

It's v. reassuring to know that some of you are still repeating baby-steps - it'll be fourth time around for me tomorrow blush

We'll be watching your thread to see how it is done!! Thanks again!

Thanks for the thread TM. Morning Countingthegreyhairs. smile

To do:-
~ tidy up kitchen
~ put a load of washing on
~ get showered and dressed
~ finish the gardening demolition I started yest. I need to dig out a 7' high post from the ground. I think it'll be hard as it has been put in quite firmly. I want to do it before dh gets home tonight as we haven't exactly agreed that I can go ahead and do it! shock wink
~ ironing
~ get tea organised for tonight

Countingthegreyhairs Wed 30-Sep-09 10:05:46

Thank you everyone. Morning Simply and Leo

You are a very friendly lot on here - makes me wonder if we've made the right decision setting up a separate thread - but maybe we can all join forces some months down the road once we are all fully airborne ....?

Coming from you TeaMonster (esteemed leader with impressively long to-do lists) that means alot - thank you!!

Back to fledgling thread ..see you smile

TeaMonster Wed 30-Sep-09 10:08:36

Bah I am not an esteemed anything blush pmsl

Right I am off swimming. I have just had to clean the leather sofa in the conservatory as the cooking fat was sick - nice

galen these children they will get sick and pass on their lovley germs. Hope you managed a snuggle on the sofa nad DVD day.

We are all still full of cold, I am hoping the baths will help my chest - ha

Countingthegreyhairs Wed 30-Sep-09 10:11:21

grin TMonster

Galen - oh sorry I missed the fact that you had an emergency ward 10 situation - hope they all feel better soon

swanriver Wed 30-Sep-09 10:54:22

Managed to inject some spicein my life by kidnapping builder (now working next door)and taking two kitchen units from a friend's house (she is having an extension and throwing her kitchen away shock and two excellent granite worktops shock

now just have to find a perfect space for them, will ponder over next few days
so have started day pushing wobbly wheelbarrow

now coffee
ds2 has been playing nicely, only just put on telly smile

kitchen tidy now necessary to see effect of possible new layoutgrin

galen Wed 30-Sep-09 11:37:22

hmm Ok chaos reigns here LOL
All signs of illness miraculously vanished by 9.30 hmm older 3 attempting to play Map Tangle ( like a big twister but with a map and places you have to put your hands and feet on), only DD$ doesnt understand and keeps running across trhe map, DS2 just wants to lie on the mat and roll around, and dog keeps running in and jumping all over map and various DC in great excitement...lots of squealing and DS1 moaning "why wasnt I an only child" LOL LOL

I may not actually survive to teatime at this rate.... someone rescue me pleeeeeaaaase!
What can I do with 6 supposedly ill(but well enough to fight and annoy me and not actually that ill at all) DC all day??????? shockhmm

swanriver Wed 30-Sep-09 11:57:40

bribery? everyone has to go to their room and read for half an hour or return with artwork? 20 p reward each
Take everyone out for short brisk walk even if they are ill with dvd as reward

build enormous city out of bricks and let ds2 knock it down later?
sleeping bunnies?
Here we go gathering nuts in May?
In and out the Dusty Bluebells? You do have an advantage here Galen, much more fun with lots of kids doing these singing games.

must switch off telly now blush and pay attention to lonely ds2 (not v. ill but might have accident if sent to school so...)

some prog on kit, not much, have draped brown door mat on units to get impression of gleaming mushroom granite (which unfortunately I cannot lift up - builder has gone to his proper job again)

Makingchanges Wed 30-Sep-09 12:36:53

Afternoon all - Just popping in between schools. Get 20 mins for lunch so quick catch up whilst eating (i'm sure I'm going to end up giving myself indegestion)

Sorry to here of all the DC's who are ill - Hope they are all feeling better soon.

Been in to school this morning and back out to another one this afternoon, then home for some tea and sign language.

So far have popped some washing in, need to dry when I return at tea time.
Quickly revise more for sign language - struggling with greetings
Find school uniform for DD for tomorrow
Shopping on way out to Sign or back from tonight

Best go - Assuming I have internet later (seems to be a bit dodgy) I will BBL

scattyspice Wed 30-Sep-09 12:43:15

Hi all.

Galen LOL at you not very ill children. Don't let them have too much fun or they'll be ill everyday.

Swan - lucky you spicing up your day with a builder wink.

Simply - that sounds highly danergous!

Tea - hope Ds ok today

Hi everyone else.

Beavers tonight

SimplyWantsAMagicWandPlease Wed 30-Sep-09 16:11:16

Hello to everyone. smile

EHM You can come to Wales to me! I'd have to sort out the spare bedroom first, though! It would only take me a couple of days two ticks and a skip. grin

leo Good luck with the revision. smile

swanriver Are your children old enough to be able to hunt for the car key in return for a reward? You're doing the environment a favour with the kitchen units and worktops, so well done you! Reduce, reuse, recycle. Dh told me the other day that it's in that particular order for a good reason. I've never thought about it before.

Hi Starbear and go and galen and Makingchanges and Wolf.

Right. The kids have just arrived home and I can't hear myself think! Bye for now. Oh, and I have aches in places I didn't know I had places but at least I only have another hour or so of work and then that metal fence post holder thingummywatsit will be out. I'm quite impressed with the work I did this morning! smile
