swanriver Wed 11-Nov-09 10:48:29

was going to add my woes to this thread lying n bed
but will cheer up0 instead grin
having to grit my teeth - feeling a bit grim and can't do anything for a day I think, whilst longing to give dh instructions
think he is survvng...
loads of tears (think it does a lot of good just crying Wolf) yest in hosp, feeling v low waiting for five hours nil by mouth 18 hrs, but morphine does make me feel v. positive so after op(an investigat)was making allsorts of woozy amazng plans for next few weeks - fantasies about pickling and sewing and knitting, museum visits, lino printng, such as only drugs can induce.
now feel more prosaic alas grateful just for a nice cup of tea.

Simply Wed 11-Nov-09 11:08:22

Hello to all. Sorry to hear that some are feeling so unwell. I hope everyone gets better very soon.

Hi all.

Sympathy all round. This is the sleepy time of year remember and we are supposed to be winding down for hibernation hmm. Don't expect too much of yourselves.

bookfair after school
reboot laundry
clear up and get stuff ready for tomorrow

Ludaloo Wed 11-Nov-09 13:45:43

Swan hope you feel better soon [hugs]

I was doing really well....cleaned piggles out, cleaned fish out, washed up, hoovered upstairs, hung 2 loads of washing out, tidied living room...then....

DH comes back for his lunch, bringing with him 3 HUGE boxes of lego...(someones entire collection by the look of it)
Needless to say my lovely clean living room is now covered in bubble wrap, boxes and 20 tonne of lego bricks (the dining table which I spent a good long time clearing and polishing now has at least 60/70 minfigs sprawled all over it..GAH!)......and he's gone back to work!

galen Wed 11-Nov-09 13:49:38

afternoon all
wolf look after yourself.Hope youre feeling brighter soon

swan take it easy...I also have lots of plans like that alltime...but not mrophine induced, just plain unrealistic LOL

TM well done on all your sewing. My poor sock monkeys are progressing sooo slowly!

knickers I dare not venture as far as myu veg patch any more...too muddly and yuck...but luckily it is covered in plants I sewed for green manure so all is well....though really not long till they need digging in...

luda I also despise the washing - mostly the sorting and putting away...especialy socks and underwear for 4 girls LOL

wendy no worries about book...only sent mine off other day too...ooops blush and not too sure when I am meant to fit reading into my rapidly overfilling list of stuff to do LOL

Knickers0nMaHead Wed 11-Nov-09 14:15:42

I have gotten sidetracked with the housework as my new wrap sling has arrived grin

Simply Wed 11-Nov-09 14:15:54

Hello to everyone.

galen How do you manage to differentiate between the clothes (esp undies and socks) for 4 girls?! I take my hat off to you!

Hi luda. Is it grey but dry weather wise with you, too?

knickers I'm amazed that the diary arrived so soon! I'm glad someone is able to make use of it. smile

scatty I'll try to remember that we're supposed to be winding down and not try to start pulling out loads of stuff that'll take lots of sorting out.

I seem to be a bit stuck. My house:-
Tidy rooms/areas:-
living room
utility room (more or less)
downstairs loo
ds' room
dd's room

Untidy rooms/areas:-
main bedroom
spare bedroom
ensuite bathroom

I need to chip away at the untidy bits instead of just keeping the doors closed / averting my eyes and pretending that it isn't untidy. It may even be time for me to start looking at the FLY website and start doing the missions! [scared and wimpy emoticon]

FlappyGrouchybatOscar Wed 11-Nov-09 14:20:23

Wolf I'm working every afternoon at the moment but if you ever fancy popping round at the morning/weekend for a cuppa/scream feel free.

Hello all!

Been working all morning. House is surviving, I am surviving so I hope everyone is OK.

Better make lunches, byeeeee

galen Wed 11-Nov-09 14:33:48

oh knickers what wrap did you get? I used wraps loads for dd4 and ds2(although he wasnt quite so keen!) Nothing like a nice new snuggly wrap to cheer you up....and distract fromhousework LOL grin

galen Wed 11-Nov-09 14:37:45

TM have been reading your blog....and SO agree about clothes. DD1 is big (tall and big, not fat...) for her age, takes about age 12 clothes....and it is SO hard to find ANYTHING I would consider suitable for a 9/10 yr old girl.In fact all affordable girls clothes over the age of 3 seem to be totally unsuitable these days...hmm

Knickers0nMaHead Wed 11-Nov-09 14:39:45

Its a choc orange calin bleu. Never had a wrap sling but ds seems to like it. Just got to get used to wrapping it. Hope I dont get addicted to buying them!

swanriver Wed 11-Nov-09 15:33:06

Still feeling cr**p, but have spent a semi-productive morning looking at Home Ed websites to plan for 4 weeks with bolshy 9 year old.
Ruby - I advise the special TLC dentist for dd, ds1 was charmed out of phobic filling mode.
Galen - will try and get ds to send a postcard to that little boy
Wendy - he is lstenng to Joseph and Tdc, chatting to dad etc.
well done on new job Grouchy
now kids have returned - need to help dD with a loGO DESIGN and mastermind various pickups and dropoffs for B & B.

Ludaloo Wed 11-Nov-09 16:35:29

simply yep...grey all day...and cold sad

ruby I need to lose about 3 stone before May if you want some company.
wendy how lovely of you, that's very very kind, would very much love biscuits tea and sympathy with you and grouchy but suspect I am infectious. Whatever this crappy thing is it is running rampage through our family (apart from a temp we have all the piggy flu symptoms and i'm not sure about the temp as we have no working thermometers in the house)
knickers are you new to the area or have you just moved towns and getting used to the local amenities? I really like the didymos wrap btw. came to it late on so ds not hugely keen but will use one from the start next time. (if there is a next time).
swan I hope you feel better soon
luda hi lady, how's the welsh winter going?
simply leeloo, galen, mad & scatty hellllooooo
