Hello Dundee and surrounding areas!(567 Posts)
Anyone live local?
Tayside, Angus, Perth & Kinross, North Fife?
I have taken the liberty of starting a new thread!
See y'all there...!
There's nothing worse than rain-soaked hair is there? Dries all yon greasy way.
Dizzy lol at driving to shop for munchies... sounds just like me!
minipink yes I can imagine the upheaval whilst it's being done - how long do you think it will take them to do? I'd kill for a new kitchen! And an Aga. And a KitchenAid. And one of those fancy drawer-style dishwasher jobs... Dream on lol
Well done to Abbie on the sleeping
Abbie is doing great and sleeping all night most nights now She is 11lb 3oz so still a dainty dolly
Kitchen cabinets almost empty and work should start in next week or so - not at all looking forward to the hassle but looking forward to the result
How is Dylan dizzy - what weight is she now?
Where is Klaw?
fecking rain got soaked about 4 times today - well thats my excuse for my hair being such a state today
well done on the weightwatchers PPC - I am a disgrace and considering driving to the shop for munchies
how is Abbie doing minipink?
I am here
Hiding from mingin weather <sigh>
How is everyone? No news here apart from it's day 2 of weightwatchers and I am (amazingly) not even peckish! Off to make a special low-points curry for tea shortly.
Hope everyone is well!
(minipink how is your kitchen coming along?)
light rain this morning taking dd to school
where is everyone????xxxxxxxxx Hi dizzy
glorious sunshine today - apparently back to sodding rain for rest of weekend
hope all well
minipink sux about periods - with each of mine I've had them back within 4-5wks despite 2-3hr feeds! I feel cheated!
PPC good luck with the weight loss - I like my chocolate too much to try that! your DH is very brave though - mine would have got a swift kick if he'd said that about pregnancy test!
dizzy it is getting a bit cooler. The wind yesterday was shocking. DS1 kept saying "bad wind" when we were out and he was really upset that his toys in the garden have been blown about! I liked it though - meant I got a few loads of washing done and dried in no time
DH is off today and he was wanting to go to the thing at Glamis but not sure if I fancy it now coz I don't know what the weather is going to do. We'll see...
sorry dizzy don't mean to boast........well yes i do...
dd1 slept all night at a friends last night....ds4 slept all night in his own bed...and,,,abbie slept from 9.30pm till 6am.....it wont last though
hope you are welldizzy where are you klaw? how about arranging a meet?
PPC dd1 is LOVING school, a bit tired between full days and her out of hours activities but loving being in school!
well done you on your weight loss - shall muster up the effort to start myself too soon
minipink of the sleep - we're still on 3hrly feeds and Im beginning to get tired now - esp as dh back at work
is it just me or is it getting a tad chilly!? first pot of homemade soup made today <<sigh>>
Back from hols now <sigh> God knows what I'll do when dh goes back to work on monday, I'll have no-one to delegate tasks to!
Hi Kam29 + welcome!
Dizzy How is dd1 getting on at school? Hope she's settling in. Dylan sounds like she's doing great - lol at 'head start!'
Ooh meant to say - do you (any or all!) think it would be a good idea to start a new thread? We have a lot of new posters now, and this one must be a bit cumbersome to scroll through if you're new... Just a thought. I don't mind starting it!
Have joined a weight loss thread as I can no longer find my waist, I am so sick of the muffin top... going to do weightwatchers. Starting monday. Not sure how much I have to lose, possibly a stone and a half. Dh said to me, perfectly seriously, 'Do you think you should do a pregnancy test first just in case?' I gave him my best face.
Hi asur - yes I do love my family of 6 but it is hard work I love getting Abbie weighed and keeping track of her progress, I was the same with all the rest.....my anorak thing I suppose
Got bloody periods last night....felt sure I was going to get away with it for longer....with dd1 and ds3 and 4 I had no period for over a year while bf...grrrr!!! Probably explains sore back and sore head last few days....
DID HAVE GOOD SLEEP LAST NIGHT THOUGH!!!Went to bed at 9pm and so did Abbie and she didn't get up till 5am and only then had a little feed and slept again till 7.30am...better still ds4 slept all night and dd1 stayed in her own bed all night!!!!!!
oohh asur have never heard of Frosty's but I'm a bit far from Forfar - will keep it in mind though
*minipink I just looked at your profile to find out how old Abbie was (nosey sorry) and you have 6 children You must love kids! Am also a bit that you still get her weighed, thought you'd be bored of baby clinics by your 6th! My boys have only ever been weighed twice each!
So, I went to Frosty's in Forfar for the first time today - anyone been?! It's really good and DS1 had a great time. Think I'll be making that a regular trip. (For those who haven't been, it's an ice-themed softplay place)
lol minipink thats great news
dylan is now 11lb9oz, was weighed today, but we did have a head start
also did my postnatal assessment thingy and scored better than with dd2 even after loosing my mum
Hi there kam29 many congratulations that's great news xxxx
I live in Auchtermuchty so we're almost neighbours
Went to baby massage yesterday and Abbie was so chilled out with it. She is now 10lb 12oz xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
oh congratulations kam29 what an exciting time for you - I stay this side too, just over the bridge and head towards tentsmuir I have 3 girls, dd1 aged 5, dd2 aged 2 and dd3 aged 4wks
welcome to the thread!
I've just discovered this site and thought I'd say hello. I live in Ladybank in Fife and am expecting our first baby next week! I just finished work in Dundee last week so am enjoying putting my feet up before D-Day! Anyone else live this side of the Tay?
minipink she's a wee cracker and it sounds like all the kids are doing away fine
I can't believe we had 2 lovely days of sunshine and thats summer over poor dd1 is STILL getting sent to school in her wee checked summer dress come rain hail or shine!
I've got HV coming for my PN assessment thingy on tues so will get dd3 weighed then, am hoping she's still doing ok
This thread has gone all quiet again
I have uploaded some new pics of Abbie at last.
What a great day yesterday although a bit humid - dh managed to get the grass cut at last...was beginning to worry I was going to loose dc's out there
Well gpt Ciaran back from Ardroy and he had a great time...it wasn't too wet for them.
Stefan got back from UK school games late last night and he did great. He has to swim against able bodied swimmers at the games and he got a bronze in his 200IM and a GOLD in his 100m FLY. He also got improved times in both and so a little step nearer his goal of 2012
Hope everyone is doing ok out there....
Hello asur, and all you other lovely ladies!
I want to join in the drying clothes mump too, there's a drying area in the ground floor of my multi (open at the sides, but under cover) so it's great when it's raining as it is protected from most rain. But not from scummy gadgies who steal it. So I'm finding it easier to jusfify the tumble dryer cost as I don't have to replace everything.
AND I'm pretty sure I saw my sheet on someones line the other day as it has a similar stain, but not enough to take it.
What tinkie would steal a stained bed sheet?
Hmmm, instead of making me feel better I just feel again.
Tayport primary - we're very happy with it so far - she has a lovely teacher
ok dizzy that's great xx have a good week with dh xx
which school is dd1 at?
minipink hope you packed his wellies and waterproofs!
its dh's last week off work so if you don't mind we're trying to get loads of stuff done while he is here so I'll raincheck on Bonkers until next week when he's at work and I'm needing out the house and dd1 is in school till 3pm and not these annoying half days!
PPC Hope you're enjoying your time away and are having better weather than us
Hello all!! OMG it's raining again
Poor ds3 left for Ardroy this morning with school....hope it gets better for them.
Anyone feel up to a trip to Bonkers this week? Although I would only have Abbie with me and obviously she can't play... dd at school and ds4 at childminders.
