leolantern Thu 08-Oct-09 10:06:34

Hi everyone,

Sorry didn't make it back on yesterday. I was good though and did quite a bit of revision and a bit of housework. just under 2 weeks before my exam now.
Anyway for the next couple of weeks have decided to let the housework slide a little and I am giving DHs work shirts out to be ironed as the pile is getting beyond me at the moment.

simply I would love a swim unfortunately there is no pool nearby sad I suppose I could jump into the sea if I got desperate but it look rather deep and rocky so on second thoughts maybe not.

swan are you planning on redoing you kitchen (sorry if I missed it on a previous thread) I love redecorating rooms and knocking down walls etc grin

wendy I find that too when I have one to many late nights I get very cranky fell much better if I get to bed at a decent hour. Now I sound like my mum I used to think it was so sad when mum would go to bed at 10 or 10.30 and swore I would never be in bed before 12 as an adult. Oh how times change!

Anyway today
breakfast done
kids to school done
general tidy
make beds
load of washing
ironing dc's clothes done

Morning Peeps.

Having a steady morning. Done my morning routines, got GOjr to school, meeting with the head and home. The house is acceptable so I'm just lurking grin

TM GOjr has been put on the G+T register for his reading blush. He's struggling with his current book and I'm pleased about that tbh. I do reading friends and work with older pupils who can barely read. I think it's so very sad that they are missing out on a whole world of adventure and stories sad. Be proud of maxi mini mad, he'll go a long way.

<<sidles off to do nothing in particular>>

galen Thu 08-Oct-09 10:34:40

hi GO X posts!

wendyhappysmile Thu 08-Oct-09 10:49:46

Poor you galen you all seem under the weather lately.
Been very cranky with DD this morning. Need to get on and do some sticking or something. Veggie Moussaka is cooking in various bits, just needs assembling. Bread rolls rising. Still need to decide what's for lunch! Feeling very tired!

Starbear Thu 08-Oct-09 11:15:01

Morning all
Thank you Simply for the thread. Sorry I haven't kept up with you all the past two days. Hope those that are unwell get better and those that are well stay that way.
I agree with TM Wendy & all there is far to much pressure on little kids, all we can sometimes do is muddle our way through. DH's friend at work a Special Needs teacher has given us two tips for letters. Make letters out of playdough & hide letters around the house that have to find. I also heard on T.V (and in the papers some months ago) 10 mins academic work 15min or so active play outdoors. I think that will shake off the mood that goes with house work. I think we might even go out in the dark what the heck!
I'll be back in a mo with my list

Starbear Thu 08-Oct-09 11:16:11

Ops! I mean 'homework' (same boring thing though.

Makingchanges Thu 08-Oct-09 11:16:35

Morning all

Sorry haven't been on for a couple of days - Having technical difficulties with our wireless meaning that we only have PC working which DH has needed for work - He has deemed his paid work is more important than my mumsnetting - I've tried explaining its what keeps me sane but hes not going for it.

Thanks for the comments about DH and ignoring the housework - I gave in in the end as yesterday was our actual anniversary and I didn't think being mid arguement would be good.

Busy at school again today so only a little flying, although I go on hols in a week and I know that DH is gonna insist on the house being spotless (for the burgulars) so better try and find some time.

Sorry to hear you're not feeling well Galen. Simply swimming time sounds great if just for time to yourself. Well done grouchy for being organised, enjoy your day pottering. Hi to everyone else.

To do today

Washing - Doing at moment
Tidy kitchen
Make fresh bread
Whats for Dinner
DD to nursery
Me to school
DD back from nursery
De-flea the cat
Fold clothes that are currently sat in basket
spanish homework


SimplyWantsAMagicWandPlease Thu 08-Oct-09 11:18:08

Hello to everyone.

Well done on the revision leo. smile

Enjoy your sidling go. grin

The pool isn't too cold for me thankfully galen. I dream of the warmth of the the Center Parcs dome but have to do with reality! I do realise as leo said that I'm lucky to have a pool nearby. One woman in the changing room last night came in, had a quick swim (doing lots of lengths) and was getting dressed up ready to go to the opera which was a 10 minute walk away, so we are really lucky. As we're a couple of hours away from everywhere we do tend to have quite a lot going on in our small area.

Revised done list:-
~ ironing
~ eaten and drunk elevenses

To do next:-
~ hoovering
~ washing up

Any lurkers - please say hello! Bbl.

Starbear Thu 08-Oct-09 11:47:47

Hello again.
Did a little bit of flying at work too, within my new office. Two boxes sorted, flung,given away and filed smileTaken the day off today for School Harvest Festival.
Of course yesterday I got home at 8pm unplanned work had to be completed before going home. Not so quick, dash to 24 hrs Tesco and baked a Victoria Sponge cake at 10.30pm! shock Brought this morning for £3.00!!! It would have been heart breaking if no one brought it.
So very little flying today I think I'm going to do 1 set of 45mins then go out & enjoy the autumn sun. smile
Beds made [done]
D/W unloaded & reloaded
Tidy Kitchen
20 mins running around the house putting things away.
Whats for tea? Fish & Mash with carrots

swanriver Thu 08-Oct-09 13:41:18

Good mood not necessary for this thread!
though Simply seems usually in v. good spirits [suspicious emoticon]

TM - Sometimes one has just had enough of everybody and everything, except essential stuff. People can be the worst of all, much worse than housework really.

Starbear Thu 08-Oct-09 14:06:55

TM ah! That sadly is something I always push to the bottom of the pile to deal with.
Come back soon.
I love Alvin Hall, the financial advisor as he deals with the emotions around money, not only selling a product. Oh! Yes, he did sell a product, his book. blush
Right, I've done my bit of flying today.
I'll be back on form, tomorrow when its my working in the home day.
