Dropped ds off at Heathrow yesterday and just shattered, course that had nothing to do with the Virgin Vie party I went to last night Or the wine had at said party. Course not

Morning all. I'm all alone with no kids at all, not even ds!!! The 2 sisters are now on holiday and so my brother very kindly offered to take ds out for the day. We were supposed to have visitors over this afternoon (old mindee) but my brother asked and that's all that ds could think of so it was too late, all excited etc!! So, felt bad for letting friends down but at least I'm all alone til about 5pm

Am going to crack on with the really physical jobs I need to do (big sort out upstairs) and do it asap (including defrosting freezer ) then I might have time later to just chill for a bit (sinuses really bad last night and tonight so could do with a bit of chill time)

Have a good day everyone

morning all. At last I am back online, what a relief. So I've brought flapjacks plus chocolate buttons for us hard working CMs .
I've been working flat out, had an emergency placement for 6 weeks which has now ended so I am back to my normal 4 days a week. Phew. Looney you are marvellous not to collapse in front of telly as soon as your LO are off !

I'm back from day out, it's so hot I had to come home and my head is pounding, but the children enjoyed themselves. going to have a nice drink and some biccys before sorting ouy all the goodies that they have collected.

PinkChick · 01/08/2007 15:11

well weve been to park, dd's nanas for lunch then village shop for fresh bread and salad etc then off for a mad 2 hour stint in soft shatterd, ate too many choc and flapjacks from mums and feel hot and harrased!..still i may have talked friend/mum from school into letting her youngest come to me as well as big sis(after schooly)on an as and when contract, dad has just been demoted so funds are unsecure, but to help out and get bit extra cash i said i organise an on going contract, no notice peiods wed just be honest if too much for either of us..contract will be signed and all my T&C read trhu but just let her leave if needed, think it makes it easier for mum and dad and i dont mind as its a space i wasnt going to bother filling as am happy with sept ratios, but one more few hoursa week should be ok

Katymac · 01/08/2007 21:10
