here you go

Choccywoccydodah Tue 01-Apr-14 08:48:47

Morning! How are we both?
Hope you had a lovely weekend?
Had a good one here, had some friends over to christen our bar lol and the boys watched the f1 and us girls sat in the garden with the BBQ, what a beautiful day!! Euan can finally start using the conservatory for his toys as we've emptied it of all our building crap now so all the kids were in there so we could see them.

Lol with the dog wee liz!! I wouldn't have touched it either!

Iwish, hope you've managed to settle Lucy so you have you evenings back now.
Euey was in his basket for about 6 weeks total, but in his cot from 2 or 3 weeks in his basket. Babies are so noisy grin
I thought he was only in his basket a couple of weeks, but I remember we came home from wales at about 5 weeks and we brought it with us.

Don't post anymore on here, will do a new link, we've only got 2 posts left!! Xx

Happy Mother's Day girls xx

Iwish Sat 29-Mar-14 20:51:35

She's still in my room lol. I just can't move her yet. I have however put her to bed at 8:00 instead of having her on my knee downstairs till I go to bed. but I'm in my bedroom with her lol

How has your day been?

The babies and nick took me out for a posh afternoon tea for Mother's Day hehe. Nick is out tonight so staying at his brothers so won't be in any fit state tomorrow.

Joshua has been quite good these last few days too.

lizandlulu Fri 28-Mar-14 14:26:37

I think she was about 9-10 weeks, it was when she out grew her Moses basket. But her room is so so close to ours we may as well be in the same room anyway, I can hear her breathing from our room. If it has been further away I might have not been so quick to do it. But if they sleep well normally I think we can over worry about these things.
Wait till yor ready otherwise ŷou will get less sleep from all the worry!

Iwish Wed 26-Mar-14 21:26:22

I really hope she carries on like this liz. I would love to have a bit of evening back! I like being able to chill when Joshua is in bed but can't do it with Lucy downstairs.

When did u put Violet in her own room? I want to move Lucy but I don't think I'm ready lol

lizandlulu Wed 26-Mar-14 21:01:51

Iwish, wow! That's some good sleeping! It sounds like you have had A breakthrough! Yey.

Just think, you could get a little bit of evening to yourself! Heaven .

Iwish Wed 26-Mar-14 20:46:27

Hahahahaha!! Let me go stand it!! Hilarious Violet.

Well Lucy fell asleep on my knee last night at 8:00pm and I woke her for a feed and change at 10:30 then she was only up at 2:00am then back to sleep till 8:00am!

And she's currently been asleep on my knee since 7:00pm! Might start putting her up to bed soon eek!

lizandlulu Wed 26-Mar-14 12:54:55

I have left it, only problem bring we have to go through the conservatory to get out the house. Kids know its there tho so are avoiding it. And just cos I told violet not to go near it, she was pleading to!! Please mummy, let me go and stand it in! Er no dear

Iwish Wed 26-Mar-14 09:58:36

I'd be pissed off about the dog pee. I'd have left it and shut the door so the kids couldn't get in. (Obviously let the dog out lol) you didn't want the dog in the first place did you.
Book don't remind me about the clocks changing ��. I hate losing time in bed, wish they would leave the bloody clocks alone!

How are you choc? Is rob still in the good books? Nick pisses me off regularly leaving me to sort both kids out all the time and tidy up etc while he sits there on his phone or computer.

Lucy is 11 weeks old!! I can't believe it, it's going too fast sad

lizandlulu Wed 26-Mar-14 07:46:27

Ffs Chriss dog has pissed in the conservatory, he wont clean it up cos it was me who shut it in there by mistake. If it wasn't like fucking Houdini and slink in behind you without being seen or making a sound, I wouldn't have shut it in there. Fucking thing, I don't want the dog yet I have to fucking clean up after it. If it wasn't or the kids stepping in it, I would leave it there.
Fucking twat.

lizandlulu Tue 25-Mar-14 21:59:20

Just realised next week we will have to get up an hour earlier! How is that going to happen!! Not good.

How are you both?

lizandlulu Sun 23-Mar-14 19:32:34

Sorry I didn't realise Euan went, although I remember you saying about it, sorry, you know my memory is shocking

lizandlulu Sun 23-Mar-14 19:31:56

I have the exact same problem, I got a spa voucher for Christmas, was planning on going with a friend, now one friend has back tracked saying she can't afford it at the min which is fair enough, another friend has such a hectic social life she can't possibly fit me in, I've asked her twice to sort out a date when she can go, she hasn't and I'm not asking her again, so might end up on my own. sad

Choccywoccydodah Sun 23-Mar-14 09:15:02

He goes 8-1 mon, weds, fri already Liz, but I always end up 'working'. Rob has offered to send me to a spa for the day so he's back in the good books smile Just don't know who if want to go with, think would rather just me!!

lizandlulu Sun 23-Mar-14 08:54:25

Have you thought about putting him in nursery for a day or two a week? Use one day just to do wherever you need to. He would love it, playing with other kids and you don't feel the need to stay long, just kiss and run! It's fine to have family look after him, god knows I wish I had someone who wasn't as bloody dear as nursery, but for the sake of your sanity, you should have him in somewhere, regularly.

I haven't had a day off for weeks. Obviously I go to work, which is good, nd gets time away from the kids, but haven't had any proper meeee time for weeks and weeks. I've made Chris pin down a date so hecanhave them, and I'm going shopping. Sod them, he can cope. I get really really fed up if I don't get no time away.
Some mothers might say I'm wrong, I shouldn't want to leave my kids, I should want to be ith them at all times, but get real!!

Choccywoccydodah Sun 23-Mar-14 06:39:41

Iwish Euan has had his off days recently, but this last week he's not been bad at all, just tiring!
He was up at 7 friday and we thought he'd shifted again , but no, 6.30 yesterday and 6 this morning. Rob hadn't locked the gro clock so euan turned it on, so I made him get up since he put him to bed.

Very annoyed with him at the moment, he keeps locking himself away and I'm looking after Euan all the time, I never get any time on my own. Rob put him to bed and bath and I spent the time ironing!!
Yesterday we were meant to be having a movie day and he spent from 10am to 4.30 trying to get the bastard thing to work!!!!! I told him about 2 to forget it as is already been up since 6.30 and it's a looooooong day when you're trying to entertain a toddler from the moment he wakes at that time until bed with no break for sleep.
Anyway I made him get up this morning as I'm sick of him fucking off and the long days and he said it's a long day for me too. Yeah right because you've got a toddler in your ear all day!
Anyway he then said I can't believe we're trying to do this again to be honest. I'm lying in bed fuming!

I know he does the house up and works answering the phone to tenants etc, but I get NO time at all. He goes out with his brother or he dicks off some days with his friends etc, I don't get a day off!!
When Euan is at the grandparents I end up going into the houses with him and helping or doing our house. In exhausted and fast asleep by 9pm FFS!
Roll on France then he can chip in!!

lizandlulu Sat 22-Mar-14 22:14:39

YOu have my sympathys. Strangely violet has been pretty good this week. Although we haven't really been anywhere where she has had to behave. Like today, she can run free at the farm park. In shops I do like to keep her in a trolley as much as poss, try and contain the madness!!

Iwish Sat 22-Mar-14 21:15:39

I went in matalan the other day, the new summery stuff is lovely isn't it! Can't wait to buy the kids Summer stuff. grin

The farm looks really good! We want to go to the farm tomorrow but it says it's going to rain! Will be nice for you to go our together tomorrow.

I'm usually with nick at weekends but the last 5 Saturdays he's been busy so I've been with my mum n dad or on my own.

Joshua has seriously tested my patience today and yesterday. He was so naughty I just put him in his bedroom and went downstairs for a few minutes.

lizandlulu Sat 22-Mar-14 18:20:33

Meal was ok, it's strange, there is one dish that's amazing, really really good, but the rest is just meh, I don't think we will make the special effort to go to a Thai again. We've been twice and it's not as good as a good Chinese.

Today it's just been me and the kids, usually I have my mum with me on a sat, but she went out with me dad, so I took the kids to rand farm park, which was jam packed. Only stayed s couple of hours, then to McDonald's for dinner, then Matalan and home. Matlans got loads of lovely kids stuff in, only looked st the girls tho, sorry choccy! Got abit of summery stuff for violet.

Not sure what were doing tomorrow, Chris was going racing but its been cancelled so going out together for a change, just don't know where

Iwish Sat 22-Mar-14 18:01:44

How was your meal liz? What did you do today?

I went swimming with my mum and the kids this morning and just stayed at home this afternoon cos the weather is shite. Nicks dad is coming to visit tomorrow and if it's nice we will go to a farm. If it's raining I've got no idea lol.

Bought Lucy's christening outfit yesterday. It's sooo cute grin

lizandlulu Fri 21-Mar-14 18:22:45

Evening girls, how are you both?

Ok choccy?

Anynice plans for the weekend?

We out for a meal tonight, just bathing the kids then got to get ready and drop them off before we go. Going for a Thai with some friends at seafood. I'm starving!

Iwish Tue 18-Mar-14 21:44:40

Lol yeh you will be the same as me! I was due 30th December! You get beyond caring, just want a baby.
The good thing is that you know it can happen, your body must just be waiting for the perfect eggy.

Joshua has been about of a shit today and Lucy has cried all day. I have a biiig headache and need my bed.

lizandlulu Tue 18-Mar-14 18:13:23

I crap with words too, don't know what to say. It's good that you've had a good cry and let it all out.

And good hat you have something to look forward to. Sods law now, it will happen. How long are you going for? Leaveing euan with your parents?

Choccywoccydodah Tue 18-Mar-14 09:37:53

Don't worry I'm the same.
Prof has said I can carry on. Don't you just know I'm going to have a christmas baby wink. I really don't care anymore!!
We've booked singapore f1 now for September so am a bit happier although I had a few drinks and had a bloody good cry last night. Totally sucks!!!
