Hi, yes it's very cold this morning. everyone in the school playground was complaining if they didn't have a coat on.
I'm glad I done all my washing yesterday.
Off to toddler group in 15mins and the lovely ladies there will make me a nice cup of coffee, only have the 1 mindee today.


saltire · 04/05/2007 09:28

I was too engrossed in the Scottish parliament election results Shosha to worry about Tea.

I'm here now though


Shoshable · 04/05/2007 09:33

Just got 2 today, so a really quite day, no school run as it is a inset day, and mums off with them, so we have the play dough out.

Morning ladies! [maureen hands round some home made cookies that her and mindee have already made this morning!]


looneytune · 04/05/2007 10:09

Oh, thanks for the cookie Maureen, will eat after I've finished my marmite crumpet

I'm sitting here all alone waiting for baby to arrive (got text this morning saying coming between 10/10.30 ). No other mindees as this is the baby I'm paid double to provide 1:1 Ds at nursery then lunch club so don't need to go out til 12.30 (no toddler group today)

It's freezing here too but then it was yesterday morning and turned out really nice so fingers crossed it does the same.


saltire · 04/05/2007 10:31

Whilst all you southerners have basking in heat for the past few days, spare a thought for us on the East coast of Scotland. It's cloudy here till about 3pm then the sun comes out! Then about 6pm the har comes in again.
We are wrapped up in coats to go to the park


dmo · 04/05/2007 10:36

we have just made banana and oat cakes so it smells yummy here


MaureenMLove · 04/05/2007 11:16

Er Saltire, it ain't that hot here! I'm in SE london and I'm blinkin cold. Got me boots out again today, which means my lovely painted manicured toenails are hurting, coz they're too long! kids wore fleeces to school again today too.

So, where are we up to this morning? Me & mindee 1 have made cookies. Then we washed the dolls house and all the little people and furniture are in the dishwasher. mindee (3yrs) has had her cookie for elevenses (is that how you spell it?) and now she is having a nap. Poor love gets here at 6, so she's shattered. I'm having a well earned coffee before mindee2 gets here at 12.30. trouble is, I've run out of milk, so I've got dd's chocolate milk in it! Kind of homemade choco mocco really.


crace · 04/05/2007 11:33

Nope, freezing here in lovely Kent - sun is shining but freeze freezing! Just been out all am over to a playdate in the village with 2 mindees a dd. A double buggy and one in reins - I am not sure I will be that brave again, 3 under 2! Yikes..

Anyway, lunchtime soon and they all leave by 1pm today - woohoo!


MaureenMLove · 04/05/2007 11:41

Did anyone see the thread about OFSTEDoutstanding getting an outstanding (obviously!) Wonder if she going to join us later. I did ask if anyone else had outstanding and should we have a VIP area in here? Don't worry if you're not, you can sit with me in the slummy area. i've got vodka and brandy and chocolates over here!


looneytune · 04/05/2007 11:43

  • I got 2 outstanding parts but rest were good so overall was Good. 2 Childminders in a nearby village have outstanding though

crace · 04/05/2007 12:14

Humph, well no outstandings here I think I am though teehee

Now, off to find the slummy area


MaureenMLove · 04/05/2007 12:17

[maureen drags on her fag and welcomes crace into the fold] Stick with me babe, its more fun over here anyway. Fancy a wee dram with ya lunch?


julia5 · 04/05/2007 12:19

Budge up in the slummy corner, I am merely good (I think I'm outstanding too!). She did really well to get an outstanding, I shall be grilling her at some point!
Friday is my day off so been shopping, Tyrrells Parsnip crisps anyone?


MaureenMLove · 04/05/2007 12:26

Ooo I love parsnip crisps! Have you tried making your own. They are delish!

mindee1 still asleep, but I can hear mindee2 (18 mths) getting ready to knock on my door. He lives nextdoor, so I can hear him calling me! He is full on, so I may not be back til about 4'ish. Damn its Friday too, so that means dd gets a couple of hours on MSM!

Seriously those parsnip crisps are amazing - sudden and uncontrollable craving. Might actually have to go and make some now


julia5 · 04/05/2007 12:36

Touch! mindee2 is in. dad said he hasn't had a sleep today yet and he's really tired, he'll probably be asleep in about half and hour - and he is!

btw, I only virtual smoke, i don't do it in rl!


mumlove · 04/05/2007 13:35

Mindee in bed, I've had my lunch, now i'm sitting down having a large coffee.
The sun has come out but it's still chilly.

Shosha - what did the lady from surestart want? I didn't know they came to visit you.


dmo · 04/05/2007 13:42

crace · 04/05/2007 13:48

Ok, cool - I will join you in the virtual fag (before I was a social smoker, at the pub and away from the kiddies - I can admit it )

Am now free! However, mindees dad usually hangs around for a natter (about 15 mins) was here for 30 mins! Yeesh
