Hello gorgeous ladies

Had lots of fun in the sun today grin 3 hours at the lido!!

Luce, sorry you didn't get the exact call you wanted and hope you hear more next week as advised to you. Must be v frustrating.

Oooggs, lovely photo of L. He is a sweetie.

SPB, you will be just fine my lovely. Number 2 is a breeze as you know what you are doing by then hmm!!

Hi Elkie and Caz.

Dooby, how much longer until af day!!! The suspense is killing me grin

Hope everyone else is ok and not too sunburnt.

Had a lovely day with the girls today. Spent the morning at home in the garden which was just fine and then 3 hours at the lido. A school friend of B's happened to be there which was great, as she went off and played with her for 2 hours!

Off to London tomorrow, and really looking forward to the break. Dh has been working every evening this week (at home) and worked until 12.30 last night which is just nuts. So, will be good to spend time with him. He is off on Sunday night for 3 nights with work which I am not looking forward to.

Anyway, need my bed as am shattered. May not be on tomorrow, so if not, see you lovely bunch on Sunday evening. xx

we're having a barbecue with DH's cousins!
They couldn't make it for one reason or another to T's birthday so it will be lovely to see them.
Sent DH to get apple and raspberry J20 - he came back with Bacardi Breezer! Clue is in the name DH Even worse - it was watermelon flavour hmm

Just so I know where you are,

Awful night with W last night. Think I got all of about 3 hrs kip. Plus dh had work today.

But, J and W are having their first sleepover guestgrin My aunties little girl, technically my cousin, (but I get called auntyhmmgrin)who is 6 mths older than J. They've had great fun this afternoon in the glorious sunshine, noe tucked up in bed, which is where I'm heading.

Really don't want a repeat of last nightsad

StealthPolarBear Sun 31-May-09 08:20:57

On no dooby, hope you're feeling better.
How was last night runny?

CaptainDippy Sun 31-May-09 09:01:07

No offence, but haven't looked at old thread ..... any major news!!? Fill me in .....

Has been a busy half-term and I haven't had the time to post this week shock It has been fun though; just wish the weather could've been a bit nicer hmm Oh well, lovely and sunny now smile (Love the thread title smile) Plus there has been Britain's Got Talent to watch every evening!! winkgrin Yey - Diversity!! grin

Blah blah blah ..... I would very much like a holiday ... sans children ......

StealthPolarBear Sun 31-May-09 10:42:03

Your area must have its own climate Dippy Has been lovely weather most of the week here and mostly everywhere else I think!
There's some potential news...but I'll let Dooby fill you in when she gets back.
Glad you had a good half term - any chance of that holiday, even if it's just a weekend?

elkiedee Sun 31-May-09 17:49:52

Hi all

Sorry your weather has been worse than anywhere else Dippy - it was horrible here on Wednesday and extraordinarily varied on Tuesday - otherwise it was much too hot for my liking.

We went to visit a friend and her ds whom I met at Jolly Babies with Danny (in 2007) for lunch - it's funny to realise how much they've grown.

StealthPolarBear Sun 31-May-09 17:52:22

hi elkie

oooggs Sun 31-May-09 19:14:24

Evening - not stopping - off the paint the fence grin my what excitement!! wink

Doobydoo Sun 31-May-09 20:38:04

Hi all,glad all well.Have had everyone round and fab time.Have just answered questionnaire on Critical life care and NICU...Felt I had to and now feel rather down.Never mind..just sensitive but felt the need.
Wish me luck for my interview FrigrinWill be hideous I expect!

runnyhabbit Sun 31-May-09 23:02:54

Only had a few hours kip, because W kept waking again last night. Managed to wake my little cousin up too, who thought she was having a nightmare. How the hell can he stay awake, when he only slept for 15mins in the car yesterday? At one point in the night the only person asleep was Jhmm He can sleep through anything, lucky thinggrin

We're trying W in a full sized bed tonight, so will see how that goes. There is no pattern to the time he wakes up. Doesn't seem to amake any difference how long he has slept during the day (on Thursday he had a nap for an hour and 20 mins, but slept from 8.30pm, til 7am, without waking. And he was sleeping at my mumshmm)

Lack of sleep is def taking it's toll, esp on me and dhsad

Lets see what tonight brings x

elkiedee Mon 01-Jun-09 09:53:55

Dooby, glad to hear you have an interview but have to confess I can't remember what you've posted about it already - what's the job? Very good luck.

Runny, D woke up crying in the night and dp was in there for a couple of hours with him. Then he got up for good at 6.20 - that's at the later end of his getting up time at the moment. It's been fairly grim after a few months of him often sleeping past 7 am. C is much easier, when he does wake up I can stay in bed and feed him.

CaptainDippy Mon 01-Jun-09 10:21:37

Hope it goes well Dooby, if I don't remember to post sooner to the actual event wink

Lovely sunny day here smile DD1 has TT Day so off swimming once I have swept the dining room floor of half their blomin breakfast a bit of mess wink ....

TheAbsentThreadPA Mon 01-Jun-09 13:56:38

Lucewheel Mon 01-Jun-09 16:17:51

yeah to W sleeping runny

Waves to PA, hope that your boys are better soon.

Dooby ...GOODLUCK for friday. So nerve wracking this interview lark.

I had a telephone interview then a full assessment day a couple of weeks ago for a job that would be good return to my old career.
They phoned me today to offer me the job gringringrin
I cant believe it, I thought that 9 years at home would make a return impossible but I guess that you just dont know what they are looking for.

StealthPolarBear Mon 01-Jun-09 18:26:29

Well done Luce
Hi PA lovely to see you - sorry boys are sick

liath Mon 01-Jun-09 20:02:22

Fantastic news, Luce - congratulations!

Hi ThreadPA, sounds like everything is pretty hectic with you. Hope the boys perk up soon.

It is steaming hot here, 28 degrees in our garden this afternoon. I really felt sorry for all the full marathon runners yesterday - 5 miles in the heat was enough for me. Had a few well deserved cold beers after it all.

oooggs Mon 01-Jun-09 20:09:04

fantastic Luce grin

well done liath

oh no runny - thats hard when they don't sleep (I sure know that one!!)

hello PA

I am angry a car hit my parked car in the carpark last wednesday, dh was in there feeding Luke and saw felt the whole thing.

We have been to the police as there is damage to my car. The police rang the registered keeper (a woman) her daughter was driving, who told the police that we were just to contact them etc...
