Bless you daisy, what a lovely title!

There is no mention of poo, sick, fanjos, sex toys or prostaglandin smoothies! Are you feeling ok?

daisyandbabybootoo Wed 08-Aug-07 12:55:01

just loved up with my LO and feeling soppy

but yes a giggle (or even an attempt at one) gets me every time. I was an ice bitch until then

loonylovegood Wed 08-Aug-07 12:57:16

I just love the way when ds smiles his whole face lights up! He can't do smiles only massive cheesy grins!

loonylovegood Wed 08-Aug-07 12:58:06

Call me a lazy bitch if you want, but I am sat here in my pjs still! Please tell me someone else is doing the same!

daisyandbabybootoo Wed 08-Aug-07 13:01:02

no holly...but i had to have a shower as my right boob had been leaking through the night and i smelled like the bottom of a five day old milk bottle this morning....even DD was turning her nose up at me

I am off to essex tomorrow so did shopping for DH, cleaned bathroom, did laundry, washed pillows and duvet and am shortly off to pack. But then I am a wannabe overachiever

Yesterday I even did some work!! Got some photos edited ready to go. I feel like I am getting my life back a bit now the gaviscon is kicking in and I can get him settled.

It took me so long to type this post that you've started a new thread...

Daisy - I have filled in your survey . Big DOH award goes to me today - I went to the post office and forgot to send nappies, sorry - I will get them sent this week. Also love your suggestion for the new title.

Hope everyone is well. We've had a rough few nights here - think it must be the 3 week growth spurt and DS3 is 'draining me of my power'. Am totally knackered which means that my milk supply goes down and he just wants to feed all the time. I've now got a homeopathic remedy which should work quickly. If anyone else needs to know what it is and I will look it up (and the recipe for the special tea).

loonylovegood Wed 08-Aug-07 13:03:07

I have done some housework, so I'm not that lazy. I need to have a bath and I was waiting for ds to go to sleep before having one. He's only just fallen asleep!

Oh bugger he's just woken up!

annobal Wed 08-Aug-07 13:04:55

TA that is great news - I'm so glad that lo is feeling better.

Holly, you are a lazy slob - I was out shopping at 9am (but then I was in bed at 7pm). And yesterday was a whole other matter - we watched tv all day and I had my pjs on all day

annobal Wed 08-Aug-07 13:07:42

Daisy, I don't know how you do both of them by yourself during the week. DH was away yesterday and again tonight and I find it really difficult to do the bedtime routine. How do you bath and feed at the same time???

Holly, how is dp's new job?

loonylovegood Wed 08-Aug-07 13:08:56

I am a slattern!

annobal Wed 08-Aug-07 13:09:49

At least you are a housecleaning slattern. I'm on the laptop waiting for the cleaner to come

daisyandbabybootoo Wed 08-Aug-07 13:11:33

hi annobal. no worries, she won't need them for a while, but i suppose clearing stuff out helps you get ready for your move back to Oz. When are you going?

i'm interested in your homeopathic remedy, although my supply seems fine at the mo (ref previously mentioned leaky boob episode)

dd asleep so i'm off to do yesterday's washing up

New job is fine I think. He only started on mon, so he's only just getting the feel of it. Hopefully it'll be ok.

IKWYM annobal, I'm shit scared. Dp is away the whole of next week and my mum is going away on weds, so I'll have most of next week on my own! I'm going to go mad! Daisy you are wonderful doing it on your own all the time!

loonylovegood Wed 08-Aug-07 13:13:17

Lol daisy! You are a slattern too! I did last night's washing up this morning! I really need this organised mum calendar!

annobal Wed 08-Aug-07 13:19:10

Hi Daisy, current plan is to go to oz in April but that may push out for another 6 months (get another summer here). We'll play it by ear but certainly not tell my folks yet as they would probably cash in their tickets over to see us!!!

I get both of these from Neil's Yard.
homeopathic remedy is Urtica Urens (30c potency) - take 2 a day and increase to 3 if necessary.

there is als a tea which i drink copious amounts of: aniseed, caraway, celery, dill, fennel & ferngree (the last one's not right but it is something like that).

loonylovegood Wed 08-Aug-07 13:19:46

Right, I'm running a bath, so speak later when I'm lovely and clean and not smelling of sick and stale milk!

daisyandbabybootoo Wed 08-Aug-07 13:20:56

annobal.....i get dd ready for bed while DS gets himself ready (he's 5 and quite capable, he even brushes his own teeth now)). he then sits in bed reading while i feed dd and put her down. i then read him his bedtime story before collapsing on sofa with large glass of wine.

well that's the theory anyway...

...usually more like me shouting at ds to get ready whilst dd screams her head off as i've poured water up her nose, then ds kicks off and has huge tantrum about getting ready himself so i have to leave dd screaming while i scrub his face and teeth. then he won't leave me alone when i'm feeding dd and i get cross and dd refuses to feed so i have to jiggle her up and down to stop her crying whilst reading ds his story or the story gets refused by me as punishment for his stroppiness. finally get him in bed, her fed and settled before collapsng in a sobbing heap on the sofa with a bottle of gin...no tonic

and i usually bath dd in the morning, but only if she really needs one, otherwise a good wash with a flannel, and ds only has two baths a week cos he gets scratchy skin otherwise.

but holly...the organised mum calendar won't do the washing up for me

annobal, is the last one fenugreek?

do you make it yourself or buy it ready made? it sounds quite nice

annobal Wed 08-Aug-07 13:27:34

Still think you do amazingly. I find it so stressful to give T&G dinner while trying to feed C. Then trying to get them into bed and reading them a story while C is screaming for a feed.

annobal Wed 08-Aug-07 13:29:00

Yes - fenugreek. Neil's Yard make it up for me - just equal amounts of each. I quaff pints of it all day. It's also good for wind (his and mine

loonylovegood Wed 08-Aug-07 13:52:26

Bollocks! I just got out the bath and the nice (and rather fine) young man from Tesco knocked on the door with the shopping. I had to carry it all in the house with just a towel wrapped round me and try and stop dd running out the front door at the same time! The towel so nearly went!

annobal Wed 08-Aug-07 14:01:27

I'm sure he'd much rather see you in your towell (or lack of) than your pjs
