Always wet for the school runs. It can be grey and no rain then bang on 8.30am and again at 3pm its raining. Heavy,yuk,rain.

where has our lovely hot sunshine gone?


PinkChick · 17/05/2007 10:44

have to stay away from the threads about Madeliene, you can reason with stupidity can you and the bickering is discraceful. im stopping looking at them and hopefully no one else from the family will cos they are making a mockery out of it
Off to do picnic now, hope it doesnt rain.


PinkChick · 17/05/2007 10:45

Hi Guys! How is everyone. Hello fifilou! are you completely new to MN or just the staff room? {Mo shows her where the coffee machine is and the secret stash of booze!}

Pinkchick - any new on your mum yet? Fingers & toes crossed for you.

I've got no babies today, conveniently managed to not have any on Wednesdays & Thursdays! Just schoolies today. My dd is year 6 along with one mindee. They will be all hyped up tonight, as they are one SATS test away from the end and they are finding out today what their end of term production is going to be. They are pretty sure its going to be Wiz of Oz, so I'm going to have to listen to endless renditions of Ding Dong the Witch is Dead and the like until the end of June!!
Happy days everyone!
