How was your evening jet? Sounds like you had great fun! We hardly get any trick or treaters here and it's very suburban! We had two knocks tonight and I missed them both! One disappeared before I got to the door and one knocked while we were at the pub with the kids Halloween party!

Hi all!
So birthdays are upon us I guess! William is not dealing well with the idea he has to go to school on his birthday! Not helped by DD pointing out she never goes to school on her birthday. I am going to a friend's house to bake his cake as we are still waiting to have the kitchen done. Added to the planned expense of the kitchen we have also got to replace the boiler which is going to happen in the next couple of weeks. I offered it to the kids as an early Christmas present but strangely they weren't that fussed!

I am procrastinating.
I should be marking year 9 books, but I am not! Work starts on our new kitchen later this week which is rather exciting but it means packing it all up again now. I have just been to order the shiny new fridge-freezer.
William had an amazing day at school last Friday, he was star of the day, got his raindrop (which lists their good qualities and is put on the wall in the school hall) and was in the gold book, which means that any member of staff who has noticed a child behaving particularly well, or being polite, etc records it in the gold book. It does mean that he is using up all his good behaviour at school and at home can be rather obnoxious at times! I think we might need to employ the elf on the shelf tactic for the next few weeks.

Hope the birthday celebrations have gone/are going well!

Glad William had a great day jet! What on earth is the elf on the shelf?? Lol!! How was the cake? Ellie was also fab on her birthday at school and I swear she didnt stop grinning for the whole day! She has been rather excitable ever since mind you and even now I have to tell her to calm down! I am dreading Xmas eve!! How's the kitchen coming along. Am v jealous! Have always wanted a new kitchen as mine is completely crap and the layout is rubbish lol. Can't wait to see finished pics on FB! smile

Great to see you greentrees!! Xx

jetgirl Mon 21-Jan-13 11:55:03

aaah a whole month since anyone has been here!
Only logged in to see if you had been around greentrees. So pleased you've been discharged. I think of you often xxx

RGPargy Wed 23-Jan-13 16:56:50

It's very quiet isn't it! sad

littleoldme Fri 22-Feb-13 15:29:36

Just calling in to say hello. It's all been rather busy of late. Hope you are doing ok Greentrees.

All good here. Tom seems to blossoming at school and Patrick is a real sweetheart. we had a bit of scare with him in Jan though when he was admitted to hospital for a night with a raging fever that wouldn't come down. He soon came through it though.

My childminding business is flourishing and I'm almost booked up for Sept which is good as all my current mindees are starting school so I was getting a touch nervous.

Not an awful lot else to report really - just plodding along with no major dramas - suits me fine !

RGPargy Fri 05-Apr-13 15:11:06

Hello LOM smile Glad you are doing well and your business is thriving! Glad the kids are OK too.

It's quite sad to see this that this thread has just sort of died off. To think we've all been chatting on here since 2007! Quite an achievement really!

Greentrees, hope you are well.

Hope everyone else is fab too!

jetgirl Tue 25-Jun-13 20:46:49

Every now and then I look on here just to see how greentrees is doing. Hope you're well. Still think of you often.

LOM and RG - see you on Facebook grin

febes Wed 26-Jun-13 08:10:55

littleoldme Thu 05-Sep-13 21:44:32

jetgirl Wed 09-Oct-13 22:30:30

I heard from greentrees a couple of weeks back - she's doing well. Hoping to see her in November when I'm in Devon for my brother's wedding.
Will look you up febes!
