Morning, how is everyone today? My dh is home from his working trip to Wales sometime today, thank goodness! dd is at school and ds at nursery this morning, and my plan is to do some housework today and cook something nice for dinner. The idea is that dh comes home to a clean tidy home, a nice meal and a happy family. He doesn't need to know about the chaos, grumpy shouty mum and pizza, fish fingers, chips etc for tea when he was away wink I can cope on my own honestly...

bobsyouruncle Fri 19-Sep-08 10:57:28

PinkPussyCat Fri 19-Sep-08 15:16:20

bobsyouruncle Fri 19-Sep-08 16:16:07

My dh is off all weekend for a change, well I hope he is anyway he may tell me different when he gets home... The sun is out here but my sister, who lives not far from me, says it's pouring there so I'm not too hopeful of my getting my washing dry! Hello tamarto smile

tamarto Fri 19-Sep-08 16:20:29

How is everyone?

Klaw Wed 24-Sep-08 23:09:31

Hello All,

Welcome to the new Angusoids! wink Angus is cool eh?

I've been busy lately with my lady going into labour, a bit of postnatal work, Dundee Birth Choices and trying to declutter my house (not getting very far) Also my sis has just bought a new house and moved, so been helping there. Then I've been givign more time to dd, and ds has not been doing his homework so I've got to nag him....

I just don't know where the time goes.....

hope you are all well grin

minipinkscottish Thu 25-Sep-08 10:55:31

Hello Missjennipenni - cool mn name grin

Klaw - hello, nice to hear from you again xxsmile

Well my new Aga Rayburn is in and running but still have no kitchensad....I know it will all take time but I had living in a guddlehmm

Abbie is doing great - she is laughing and babbling and she even turned over the other daygrin

Mackenzie is going to get an early nursery place after Oct hols - he is 3 in Oct but intake not till Jan and he really needs something more than toddlers, tumble tots and ME!blush

DS2 (14) was brought home by police after drinking with his friends angry - feel awful as he has never given me any reason to worry - now I am blaming myself sad

Hope everyone else is okay xx

Klaw Thu 25-Sep-08 16:36:19

Oh minipink shock at ds2!!! My ds is 15, I've had the police at the door when another local lad had been playing chickenelli at neighbours doors, only it wasn't ds and he was threatened that if he ever actually did that or condoned his friends behaviour he'd be in big trouble.. he's the eldest of the lads in the village so he has an example to lead....

Am wondering when the drinking and girls will start...... hmm

JennyfromtheBlock Thu 25-Sep-08 19:56:23

Hi all hope everyone is well.
minipink quiet and well behaved i wish its just a front lol. No seriously its all the icky bugs that are going about thats floored them.

Well my poor baby has the chickenpox , he`s being soo good too bless.

Also my baby is not really gonna be my baby as i`m 13 weeks pregnant and coming back for round four!!!


Klaw Thu 25-Sep-08 20:13:23

why will my child not catch chicken pox?

I really want her to get it before school so that she won't recall it and hopefully won't suffer too much either.

She didn't have any side effects from immunisations, hardly has any colds, so I've no worries about her ability to deal with these things [sigh]

Maybe she's one of these types who just carries the virus and doesn't go down with it...?

dizzydixies Thu 25-Sep-08 20:55:20

oohh congrats Jenny - hope you're keeping well and that your ds is better soon - nelsons tea tree antiseptic cream is fantastic for chicken pox if he skin is sore/itchy

minipink - am sure its nothing more than natural curiosity and now he's had a rollicking from the polis he'll wind it back in

am terrified about all that as dh is a polis and am pretty sure my lot are going to grow up thinking all of them are as soft as their dad hmm
