moring folks - up bright and early to try and make it out of the flat on time for the tartan meet up! liath - i hope you got the directions ok!

i think there should be 6 of us this morning - no trundling down the street in a pram convoy however! luce's neighbours may well wonder what the heck is going on tho'!

geordiemacminx Tue 26-Jun-07 08:39:04

morning ladies...we up early too - getting a monster feed in so that he will settle...might even get time to straighten my hair

Hope the fruitshoot thread kicks off later

Off to get G dressed for hospital have to be there for 10 and they won't be finished until 16.30! And I'll have a radioactive baby! he'll be back to normal by 10 tomorrow.

Have a good day.

Hope the Scottish meet-up goes well.

Oh another meet up.. am very .. sadly I can´t see me making any of these in the near future but hey, if any of you are out this way... (you never know!)

Didn´t even attempt to follow the last post, don´t know where you guys get the time these days! I think we´re slightly out of sync time-wise.. I normally look in about 6/7pm my time which seems to be when you are all having tea and doing bedtime etc. Then dh gets in at 8pm, we make tea, eat tea, clean up, put babs to bed and then about an hour of couple time (i.e. telly) and I fall into bed.

Went to the osteopath yesterday, she cracked about a zillion bones in my back and they fiddled about with N´s head and pelvis and that´s about it. I just don´t really understand how it´s supposed to work. I am happy to give it a shot as so many people rave about it but N didn´t particularly have any specific problems so not sure if it will be hard, if not impossible, to see any difference in him as a result of the session?? We´ll see.. she´s told me to call in 2 days and let her know if I noticed anything and also to go back in 2 weeks for a follow up. Not decided yet if we´ll go back, depends on whether it seems like it did anything, I guess.

Yvie - was it you that had toothache? Thousand sympathies, my wisdom tooth ached for about a week just past and it was bloody agony. BTW my mum´s dentist told her not to use mouthwash as it kills healthy bacteria in the mouth too... had never heard that before..

Anyway, quiet day planned today (surprise surprise), day started off a bit grim but looks like it might be cheering up so might find the energy to go for a walk. Mum and Dad are away for a week so I have to go feed their cats and change the litter tray twice a day. It was supposed to just be the weekend but they´ve decided to stay on (nice life!). Wouldn´t mind but their cats are ancient and they poo and wee all over the shop so it´s not just scooping out a couple of logs it´s changing the whole thing, mopping the floor, etc etc etc. AND the last time we went away for ONE NIGHT and asked them to feed our cats in the morning, we came back in the afternoon to find they hadn´t been yet. (my mum ´oh I was just about to go´ -. yeah thanks mum, they wanted BREAKFAST not a late LUNCH). I shouldn´t moan, they said they would put them in kennels if it was too much hassle but you know that´s the kind of ´if it´s too much hassle´ that you´re not really supposed to say, yeah actually it is, too.

Phew! Long post! Off to shower...

liath Tue 26-Jun-07 08:49:20

Hooray, have directions now. Dd got up late so I really ought to be getting ready for the Tartan Meet......

Hope nobody is affected by flooding, sounds horrendous on the News .

Katy44 Tue 26-Jun-07 09:30:07

elkiedee Tue 26-Jun-07 10:01:18

Will attempt the tart test and maybe other quizzes if I get a moment or 10 later today and might even report back! I need to get offline and eat the rest of my breakfast while life here is still quiet.

Hope Scottish meet up, hospital appointments and other plans for the day go well.

nuttygirl Tue 26-Jun-07 10:31:16

Morning all, DH made it to work this morning - unfortunately that means I have to do loads of housework cos my parents are coming today. Really must get off the computer....

CaptainDippy Tue 26-Jun-07 10:44:58

Morning - might actually get 5 secs to post as DD3 is in her swinging chair & is quiet atm!!

Hello everyone!!

CaptainDippy Tue 26-Jun-07 10:46:16

That didn't last long.


JoMa - liking the name change btw!

Sexonknackeredlegs Tue 26-Jun-07 11:00:48

Morning all.

Leaky, hope G's appointment goes ok today.

Hope the Scottish meet up goes well.

Pmsl at the talk about mums and grandmas "helpful" hints. My mum is the same tbh. Keeps suggesting we stick baby rice in K's bottle as it "never hurt you or your brother"!

Had a good night again, but have ear ache which is annoying. Don't think it warrants a trip to the docs tho.

Not much to report here, so will love you and leave you.

nuttygirl Tue 26-Jun-07 11:02:09

Hey Dippy, can I have a doidy cup please. Would prefer pink if you have it but if not I'll leave it to you to pick a suitable colour!

Do you have paypal? If not I'll send a cheque (don't want to send cash, the post is a bit dodgy round here)

nuttygirl Tue 26-Jun-07 11:03:39

Hi SOKL, sorry you've got earache. The baby rice in bottle thing gets said by my mum...even though she admits it's quite dangerous really

CaptainDippy Tue 26-Jun-07 11:10:14

Yes - hope the appt goes well today Leaky!! Thinking of you!

Yes of course you can have a Doidy Cup Nutty my dear - I think there are quite a few peeps on here who would like one - So I'll get a list and pick them all up together & post them etc.....

If you would like a Doidy Cup, please email me asap: captain_dippy "at" yahoo "dot" co "dot" uk

I'll let you know what colours we have got when I'm at work tomorrow afternoon (swapped days this week as Boss has hospital appt.)

Price is £3 inc P&P.


JoMa Tue 26-Jun-07 11:22:41

Katy44 Tue 26-Jun-07 12:00:27

hi ange, how are you?

nuttygirl Tue 26-Jun-07 12:15:54

I've emailed too dippy (but managed to send it to the wrong email address the first time )

JoMa Tue 26-Jun-07 12:19:13

Matthew is going to Nursery in just his boxer shorts, socks and trainers.

He says he won't get dressed, I'm going with it.

Oh, hang on, I've just heard Muummy can I have shorts on......... there may be hope yet!

JoMa, pmsl at Matthew!

I was 43% tart.

oooggs Tue 26-Jun-07 13:01:22

hi all - just bookmarking

CaptainDippy Tue 26-Jun-07 13:40:52

Did you managed to get him fully dressed, JM?? LOL!!

Have just tried to lie down with P so we can both have a wee snooze - no such luck - she fed and wriggled and fed and wriggled ..... and I gave up - Feeling a bit better for the little lie down though. Going to get on with housework now she is swaddled in her cot. She hasn't been to sleep since about 5am, so is high time she had a sleep, me thinks .....


CaptainDippy Tue 26-Jun-07 13:41:27

I was 20% tart btw ..... I live a v.sheltered life!!
