I am waiting to see whether DS will be well enough to go to friends, he says he is, DD is desperate to go (but can't really go unless he does) but he is coughing alot. I'm waiting to see whether he can eat his breakfst (usually a good indicator).

Cheers for the thread Galen*

to All

DH is on his way home, I've missed him and Ed has too blush


Up and meds
Make the bed
Take down drying washing
Load TD and run (x2)
Empty DW and put away

And I've packed for me and Ed for the suprise trip tomorrow. Hope it works out cos Ed is coughing and saying he has a 'poorly everything' Ho-hum

wendyhappysmile Mon 26-Oct-09 10:10:17

galen blog made me smile this morning!
scatty hope you have a good day - childfree - and DS is ok all day
TM just chill! Don't be too optimistic about what you will achieve, and you'll have a good day, I hope. Hope DS's cough is better
Well I am slowly clearing up after DH's party. Everyone left about 10 o clock last night - it was a fab party! Nine children rampaging across the house whilst all adults merrily getting sloshed and ignoring = very trashed house LOL. DC are enjoying playing with the toys that are out, though, which makes a change. I have come to the conclusion children like a messy house - well, my two never seem to think to pull all their toys out, as they are scared of the reaction from me, probably! But when it is all out, they love it!

Good morning all. Thanks for the thread galen. smile

TM A new Lakeland catalogue arrived in the post today and I'm going to be visiting one of their stores tomorrow. Perhaps I should give ds my credit and debit cards for "safekeeping" whilst I'm in the store.

I still have plenty to do so I must pull my finger out.

~ decide on the material for the curtains
~ take kids to the dentist
~ visit to cafe as a treat for ds, dd and I
~ dropped some info off for someone
~ did some food shopping

Hi all
Back from Ikea Hell. angry Always makes me feel cross and bothered! Children were fairly good but flagged by the end!
Feeling shattered after party over indulgence. Now thinking about the next one in 12 days' time!!! DS is 5 so it's 16 little ones, followed by an adult and children party ... I'm a glutton for punishment, it seems!
I love parties grin

We sold two cabinets on ebay last night for £53 so very pleased!

Anyone in a book group, or ever been in one, help me out over here please Advice for setting up a book group thread

galen Mon 26-Oct-09 18:40:46

galen Mon 26-Oct-09 18:42:48

wendy Xposts... Hi, did you get anything nice at ikea....(to at least make it worth the ordeal!) yay for ebay!

Jas Mon 26-Oct-09 18:54:50

Just wanted to pop in and say I've never done a rl book group Wendy but am just about to restart the online one I'm in on here. It'll be our 3rd year and very succesful so far. We will have a couple of spaces if you (or anyone else) is interestedsmile

wendyhappysmile Mon 26-Oct-09 19:19:29

Thanks Jas! How does it work?
Ikea, just some wardrobe door handles, and the ubiquitous baskets I always buy from there, and bits and pieces! Fed up of having no wardrobe door handles!

galen Mon 26-Oct-09 19:28:20

Oh jas I would be interested in a OL bookclub! I so want to get back into reading... but need some motivation to get to the end of abookthese days sad is that? I used to devour books! I'd also love to know how the bookclub works exactly !

galen Mon 26-Oct-09 19:29:22

hmm obvioulsy stil having some space bar issues... sorry LOL grin

wendyhappysmile Mon 26-Oct-09 19:52:01

Wardrobe handles fitted! grin The things which make me happy!

TeaMonster Mon 26-Oct-09 20:18:42

Evening All

Wendy Ikea ranks with Hobbycraft as the seventh circle of hell grin, but worth it I suppose for the handles.

galen love the blog and the decorations, wonderful.

Groucy enjoy the lights and wrap up warm. I remember being so so cold as a child, infact that is my most vivid memory of blackpool.

*Waves to Jas*

I hope you enjoyed your child free hours, what pressies have you bought.

Ruby pmsl at little splashers. DS1 has been promoted at swimming so now it is a 5 oclock lesson, makes life hard when it comes to dinners

Simply did you sort your curtains.

Well mixed bag of a day here, library, scoot, bit of painting, reading, breaking up fights, more scooting, early baths and madagascar 2.

I have also started on some more sewing, but ran out of ribbon, so just ordered some more!!

Just a question for you all - I have made quite a few t-cup and saucer candles (jasmine sented) and think I have over done the number, but have found it really relaxing to make them and was thinking of selling some via the blog, but need advise regarding price. I have seen them on etsy and the likes for £15 which seems over the top, but taking in to account materials and packaging was thinking about £9.00 for one or £16 for a pair. I also have some with plates too. What do you think, would anyone buy them?????????????????????

Wolfcub Mon 26-Oct-09 20:27:13
