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).
Galen - Love the blog.....made me .
Please tell me more abut this business venture I keep seeing mentioned - I'm intrigued.
Good morning TM and Scatty I hpe the day improves for both of you.
I've got a friend and her children coming over today, But I need to g shopping, s will have t get all of them together and out of the house fairly smart.

*Hello to All

Up and meds

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
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!
White choc cheesecake was LUSH! Recipe here
Good morning all. Thanks for the thread galen.
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.
go Very halloweenish!
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

Had our first swim class of half term (DD3 and I played dominoes on the side as we are both 'poorly'). DD1 and 2 are promoted to little splashers or somesuch, so half hour lie in tomorow!
Been shopping for crafty items and ended up buying toys in charity shop .
The some work on dd project and making xmas gifts for teachers.
Sounds like a fun day Galen!
Ed had a 2nd wind so I took him to a local cafe/bar for brunch. Just as we were going 2 of his school friends popped in with their mum and they all had a great time.

Back from Ikea Hell. 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
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
ok.... space bar kind of fixed but wobly!
Feeling incredibly exhausted though for some reason...
DH has decided topaint hall???!!!?? in midst ofhalf term chaos... just what I need LOL
cinema with girls
some (but not enough) laundry
painted halloween pumpkins (inspired by tm great blog thanks!)
Started a blog here... once again inspired by TM herself - the master of creativity LOL
*Thought about* Christmas and how wonderful it would be to have a control journal ....
forgot to go shopping - que emergency dash to shop by grumpy DH for milk for even grumpier DS2...
To do still:
work on website
plan craft activities for rest of week...
EARLY NIGHT to hopefully wake up without grumpy mood!
may BBL ....
wendy Xposts... Hi, did you get anything nice at ikea....(to at least make it worth the ordeal!) yay for ebay!
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 interested
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!
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 ...how sad is that? I used to devour books! I'd also love to know how the bookclub works exactly !
hmm obvioulsy stil having some space bar issues... sorry LOL
Wardrobe handles fitted! The things which make me happy!
Wendy Ikea ranks with Hobbycraft as the seventh circle of hell , 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*
*scatty 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?????????????????????
