Then I'm gonna sit and do nothing much this afternoon except watch daytime tv and try and get myself in some kinda workable state tonight for Spanish class.

Hello everyone. Thanks for starting the thread Starbear and go.

I hope the revision is going well, leo.

I hope you're feeling better MC.

For some strange reason, I can't concentrate so I'll sign off and come back later. smile

TeaMonster Mon 05-Oct-09 14:39:35

Just checking in, BBL. Feeling very under the weather, cold still with me and I am def not right.

swanriver Mon 05-Oct-09 14:42:33

other people's lists can cause brief faltering feeling Simply

today is really not going well
living room is cleanish
so is one bathroom
tidied ds2's boxroom

fish is overcooked
potatoes boiling now for topping

visitor [nice] brought dog, but kitten has gone into hiding - along with carkey, bedchanging and my morale

just had a lemsip sad

Starbear - what did you get Ds for his 5th? or was it his 4th, not quite sure from your profile page.
Making changes, that sounds a pretty productive morning
Leo - any revision is better than nothing!

swanriver Mon 05-Oct-09 14:45:39

Back when I have done something.
TM, just sit down and do nothing for 10 mins, I'm sure you have had a busy morning.

swanriver Mon 05-Oct-09 15:01:07

right, tidied dd's room, and ds1's room
I feel better smile
and mashed potatoes for pie

Starbear Mon 05-Oct-09 15:12:19

swan He will be 5 yrs. I brought him a small Starwars space ship & a lettergame. I think the way things are going DH would prefer me to get only letter games sad
He is a happy kid and as yet makes very few demands. (I know that can all change)
& simply I basically ignore peoples list as I haven't got 6 kids like galen & I'm part-time. I sometimes post twice once to chat and one to put a list up for myself.
I do feel like a hamster sometimes. It would be nice to go back to my Richard & Judy days when I did things in between the adverts & the boring bits and that was me done for the day! Must pick up Kid & take cakes out of the oven!!!!!

swanriver Mon 05-Oct-09 15:14:24

hoovered ds1's room, stairs, and hall smile

feel much much better
now off to pickup, peaceful afternoon ahead I hope, might try a bit of paintng with kids on pound shop canvases

scattyspice Mon 05-Oct-09 16:02:03

Hi all.

Thanks for your help with bath mats (glad I inspired a bathroom makeover Swan). Mine is now drying over the radiator smile.

Star - he sounds lovely smile.

Hope poorly people are soon on the mend, the cold/flu season has definately started it seems.

Simply - its lovely having people over (family is all spread out).

My Mum has brought on Christmas anxiety already so i have started a little thread here.

Right best crack on.

TM Take some vit C & bluberries, get someone to make you chicken soup. Get better soon.
Scatty I'll post my Christmas moans on the other thread smile
Swan I burnt a small pan of Chilli con carne yesterday. It was the one with DH extra chilli. Thankfully it wasn't the bulk cook one.
Right off to ice cakes with DS and make tea.

Starbear Mon 05-Oct-09 16:23:36

leothelioness Mon 05-Oct-09 16:29:45

swanriver Mon 05-Oct-09 18:44:09

we've had a nice afternoon
two kids seems very very peaceful - wide wide horizon
we've done lots of music, fish pie and now some baking

oh spoke too soon terrible screeching from upstairs

well done Leo!
Scatty, completely agree on Xms overload, was looking forward to those xmas pjs tho' [clearly a Mumsnet invention - we never had them in our house when I was little]
kitten found (his hair still standing on end after meeting dog)

screeching continues - bedtime beckons

swanriver Mon 05-Oct-09 18:45:47
