Morning allsmile

I need something to get me motivated this morning....not sure where to start.

galen no worries re the book, don't go out specially if you are ill. It can wait.

TM How is the pain? Are you getting some sleep? I hope you find something (not too strenuous) to do.

Ruby your holiday problems sound a nightmaresad

Morning smile

I've had headlice trauma this morning...angry God they drive me nuts! (and the lotion is costing a fortune!)

Must dash...will catch up in a bit x

galen Thu 05-Nov-09 10:48:59

luda we are also in the midst of headlice hell LOL 4 girls with thick, long, curly hair(and 2 boys also with thick hair, but one wont let me near his any more!) and headlice is a seriously bad combination LOL hmm

galen Thu 05-Nov-09 10:49:41

wendy no worries about book... no rush!

Makingchanges Thu 05-Nov-09 11:21:44

Morning all

Look after yourselves Galen and Tea

Well we have teacher training day today which I didn't realise until Tuesday - I've asked DD what she wants to do today and she says that she just wants to play with her toys so that is the plan (and a quick pop to the shops) I think she has missed not having many on holiday so she has been getting every one out - even old ones.

I have two more loads of washing then I'm done (I'm never doing back to back holidays again). Today for me is catching up on studying. I have two weeks of Spanish and Sign language to catch up on, an assignment due for childcare and a new course starting on Monday so hoping DD is happy with minimal interaction from me. Then we are off to pop down towards Sheffield Arena where the fireworks display is. DD doesn't like the loud bangs but likes watching then so we go and watch from a distance (Suits me to avoid the crowds too)

Hope you all have a good day. May treat myself with a visit back if I get enough work done.


Jas Thu 05-Nov-09 11:26:25

I decided to use "Nothing says I love you like a clean toilet bowl" as my housework inspiration this morninggrin

Going out to collect ds from nursery now, so it has just started raining.

leeloo1 Thu 05-Nov-09 11:58:30

Hi everyone - 'good luck' with the to do lists and 'get well soon' to those not feeling so good.

Changed beds, washed bedding and hung out
Cleaned sides in kitchen
Loaded DW
Hoovered downstairs and mopped kitchen and utility floors
Wiped and mopped toilets and bathroom floors

The pain is easing somewhat, I am healing pretty well, had a bath and took the dressings off, it looks really neat. I have an additional 6 inch scar under right arm and 2 4inch scars op top of origional scars at the front, but much neater.

Have just had bad news re DH car, it needs work on the particale filter £600 we dont have, we are going to have to up the CC limit if they will let us to get the work done sad

galen Thu 05-Nov-09 12:47:43

afternoon all

TM glad you're healing well. Car expense is such a PITA. Our old car (the one that blew up just outside DLP!) was going to cost £1000 to fix , in the end we decidedto get a new (well old, but new to us!)one as no point throwing that much away on rubbish car. It wasonly through some very generous family members loaning us the money that we could manage to, otherwiswe we would be have been stumped. Hope you manage to get it sorted.

makingchanges I know whatyou meanabout holiday weashing - I'm sure I still havent really quite caught up with mine from the summer... seems to be never ending backlog here!

leeloo list looks good to me

Well I have dropped DD at nursery, and although house a mess I am going to sit down for the afternoon. Still feelingf grim - but have dosed up with paracetamol....
may do some more sewing... or may not!

Oooh Galen that sounds truly grim! I have 2 girls and one boy...and luckily their hair is quite thin. The girls are shoulder length..or maybe a touch shorter so its not too bad.
My gripe is that I have had to treat us all 3 times in the last fortnight!
I think it is DS who is bringing them home as he seems to have the worst infestation...the girls have been ok really.

EEEUUURRGGHH just makes me itch thinking about it!

I have just newked any of the blighters that might have thought about living on I have just dyed my hair!
I challange any louse to survive all those stinky chemicals!

I posted this on Wednesday's thread {doh!] emo

so one more time with feeling

Cheers for the thread Tea Hope your post op pain is fading fast

Wolf I'll check my diary for 18/11 Oh the holiday, I was refering to the town, not the hotel itself which was fine and dandy.

Ruby Awful re the holiday

Hello to EHM and Wendy and starbear and simply and luda and, ooooh, *Everybody else

I'm approaching things more steadily and starting to feel a lot better for it. I'm a lot more relaxed too which makes a nice change I've done all my rotines and I'm finally getting ontop of the washing cycles (at last)

Batboy is flaking out on the sofa. Beavers was canceled tonight and I think he needs an early night

Love to all
