Have had a lovely, but super tiring day! Took older two to see Wall-E at the cinema, followed by picking up DH and P and going to a Party at KFC for lunch, followed by looking at bikes for girls for Christmas. We are now going to finish decorating the tree. I am shattered!!

Our tree is up!
Lol at M Dooby
Have a good time tonight SOL
I want some too Dippy
Anyone up for the challenge? If so, Dippy and I would like some shiny pink satin Little Miss pj's please
We have what feels like an entire chemist's counter on the go here, J has anti-biotics for ear/throat infection (although doc asked me to take them but not use them unless J got worse so as yet unopened!), Tixylix for his cough (which after at first refusing to take it because it was blackcurrant not strawberry he is now requesting!), and Calpol for the ear/throat infection if it seems to be bothering him. Dosed him up last night and sent him off to Justin's but didn't send them with him as I decided he'd be ok until he came home today. He came home coughing really badly so might have to start upping the dose.
Do you think I could hibernate for all of December every year? For the years until J was born, M was ill every December. Now J has taken on the task of making the month a nightmare!
Still, I have my fabbo April Girls created christmas tree up on the wall which had me smiling and crying all over again , and finally have the cheque for my car so can pay it to my gran who bought the new one for me. Hardly seems like a year ago (next Saturday) that I had the accident. Will be feeling very lucky again when 7.30pm comes around next week, and might just leave the car alone that day, just in case
Just posting on the new thread so I can find it, can't remember enough to respond or think of anything interesting to say, just sitting around feeling sorry for myself!
Sorry to hear J's feeling ill, though perhaps his enjoyment of the Tixylix is a good sign? Hope SOL's having a good time.
<<<<<creeps in sheepishly>>>>>
Hi everyone, sorry it's been so long I read the thread a lot and really think i've been posting sometimes
So, how is everyone? I see j is still ill potc hope he picks up soon. SOL yay to tickets turing up hope you have a fab time, dh would be
Not much going on round here. DD had her last day at pre-school it was so cute. She now has a month with no school or pre-school, that'll be fun
and it's the dc's last day at nursery on friday Good job or they'd be getting an earful as they never seem to get my invoice right and i'm beginning to get very annoyed with it. Apparently it wasn't the ladys fault that nov's invoice was wrong and there was an adj in dec(i told them nov was wrong) oh no guess who's it was.........the computers jeeeeeeeez what a rubbish excuse!
Has anyone or their dc had something called an eruption cyst when their teeth are coming through? I think ds has one. I noticed it last night after he'd eaten dinner. At first I thought it was a bit of food but it stayed there. After some mn investigation I think it may be an eruption cyst. I'm not sure what to do about it. ds doesn't seem fussed by it but it looks quite freaky! I haven't taken him anywhere to look at it yet but I will do tomorrow. Do you think doctor or dentist doubt i'd get him into the dentist anytime son so may plump for the docs?
I'll stop waffling now, dd is on about needing breakfast anyway <<sigh>>
Back soon x
Eddas, lovely to see you. Never heard of an eruption cyst. Hope ds is ok.
POTC, poor J, hope he picks up soon. I often wish Christas didn't fall in the month of December
Hi Elkie and SPB.
All ok here. Had a great time last night even though I didn't really feel like going. I went to see Mum and Dad yesterday afternoon and I always feel so down afterwards. Mum is so frail, and has lost a stone and a half in weight. I feel so sad when I see her.
Anyway, last night was a good pick-me-up and tonight we are off to see Coldpay - hence my stressing over the tickets Dippy - they were cutting it a bit fine for my liking!
Anyway, hope everyone is ok. Need to get on as loads to do before we head off.
Love to all xx
So sorry that your mum is looking frail SOL, once her treatment is over she will need to start building up her strength again.
So sorry about your mum SOL.
I hope you enjoy Coldplay.
Off out later to village party.
M won't go into his cot at night anymore[grrr]
Hope things ok with you POTC.
Hi to all.
Oh, P has just woken up - so will be very brief!! Hope all's ok for everyone.
