Morning all! That sounds like a manageable mission today (meaning I might do it rather than thinking 'that sounds like a good idea' but not actually getting round to doing it )!

To do:
laundry away
tidy up paperwork in living room
tidy side tables in living room and clean
put out bins and recycling

morning all

a slightly better nights sleep - up since 5 but cold/flu thing feels worse.

ruby we got the crosstrainer about a week ago, I'm actually really enjoying it. I shove strictly it takes 2 on the iplayer and try to do 15 mins. My scales are currently lying to me as I seem to have put on a stone since yesterday which is clearly not the case - think the battery must be on the blink.

mad for goodness sake woman take it easy.

morning scatty and leeloo

Ludaloo Thu 12-Nov-09 09:03:56

Morning Scatty Thanks for the thread smile
We have an extracurricular overload at the moment too...phew, its a job to keep on top!

Teamonster You are a real trooper! For someone who has just has major surgery, your to do list is massive! Take it easy girl..promise me you'll find some time to put your feet up xx

leeloo1 Good to do list also...that reminds me...bins...

Well I'm hopefully off out with a friend this morning, we're going for a walk to find a badger sett (I'm nosey and also a little bit geeky!) Just hope the weather stays dry.

Ludaloo Thu 12-Nov-09 09:05:50

Poor you with your flu sad...keep off the cross trainer today and take it easy smile (surely being ill is a good excuse to not work out and eat choccie instead? smile)

Morning all

Sorry not been on all week been feeling yucky so any down time i've just spent vegging on the settee. I cancelled most of school this week but other things I have to do - I hate that as an adult you can no longer be ill, you have to carry on.

Anyway just popped on to see how everyone is but seems that illness has hit most of us - better now than xmas I guess.

I'm doing bare minimum to get by today as I have assignments that are due as well.

Tea make sure you are resting too - your list does sound like a normal day.

Off to make breakfast for DD - will try and catch up on threads later

leeloo1 Thu 12-Nov-09 11:37:10

Hurray! Mission accomplished... . I am officially a good girl and my toaster has less no crumbs under it!) I even splashed out and wiped the (empty) bin down after doing the sides - a good idea as baby DS has decided he likes popping the lid open and closed and yesterday I caught him licking it - ewwwwww!

swanriver Thu 12-Nov-09 12:12:31

feelng v. bored [hmph) and shaky at same time
going to sneak off and hangup some washing before dh gets back

tried and failed - gone back to bed againsad with cup of tea not even capbable of reading a book alas
need to be fit and well for tomorrow when he returns to work
he has rung from fracture clinic to tell me consultant says ds1 bone is healing well, and hsould be mobile on crutches n 4 weeks so that's somethng. Dh is wheeling ds1 all the way from high street as he says HE needs the exercse, so that's a bonus.
BBFriday for positve vibes!

swanriver Thu 12-Nov-09 12:14:24

Galen and Leeloo (is that from Fifth Element?)hi, wrote post re: guests and sleeping arrangements but it has vanished alas.

Galen good luck with squeezing 4 extra people in!

Luda - hope you find those badgers

BBL grin

galen Thu 12-Nov-09 12:49:41

oh ok...please just ignore the millions of typos in my last post....obviously more tired than I thought...and space bar still broken LOL

scattyspice Thu 12-Nov-09 13:01:35

LOL galen - you do seem to be juggling a lot of balls. One extra out of school activity and I've ground to a halt!

TeaMonster Thu 12-Nov-09 14:35:36

Just a quicky - Wolf We took our GP neigbours advice and DID NOT give the children the Tamiflu. It will only reduce your symtons for 12 ish hours

Wolfcub Thu 12-Nov-09 16:12:55

thanks mad that's what I thought, also read something that says it is most effective in the first 24-48 hours and we are well past that now.

wendyhappysmile Thu 12-Nov-09 18:26:13

Wolf Poor you, no wonder you've been feeling rough. The Tamiflu is at its most effective as you say within 48 hours of contracting the virus, so there is little point in taking it now.
Tea Are you taking it easy woman!! All that blinking shopping when you're still recovering!
scatty hope your house is shaping up?!
swan hope you're feeling ok
galen you astound me
knickers didn't realise you had moved to ossett! We should meet up for a coffee or something. Yes one charity shop and it's not much cop either! The market is good Tuesdays and Fridays though, esp Fridays, lots of bargain stalls with good quality stuff, def worth a visit. what school catchment will your DD be in for nursery?
everyone hi
Need to get ready - off to a handbag party! biscuit
Had a good day - Castle, soft play, swimming lesson (swam a width!!!), painting with DC, veggie lasagne for tea.
See you all tomorrow lovelies.

wendyhappysmile Thu 12-Nov-09 18:26:56

wolf my email is wendylanguage at tiscali dot co dot uk
Send me your address!

leeloo1 Thu 12-Nov-09 18:49:14

Scattyspice - lol, glad I'm not the only one with a little one with a bin fetish!

Swanriver - yes it is, well done for guessing (dates me somewhat! ) I love Luc Besson films and so the nickname caught on.
