A very happy THURSDAY morning to you all! I'm getting a bit bored this this holiday lark now, I could do with proper school routine again! Got 1 mindee just til 12pm today. He's going to a friends for the afternoon. Love the fact that its parents decision to do something else, so I still get paid, but I'm definately craving term time!

yep Holiday gone on too long and my 4 year old NEEDS to start school.

Ok been stuck in the house for three days with a teething baby, stroppy 4 year old and a new walker, do you think I will be within my rights to go to soft play and shout at inattentive mothers

Shosha - I do not want to go back and repeat wednesday (it was a nightmare). I shall stay at hopefully my quiet thursday getting the last bits ready for packing on saturday. Then just the 1 mindee tomorrow.
When I come back from my hols the mindee that was leaving will be comming back on fridays, they have swopped her days around so much this year.
Have a great day everyone, the sun is out here.

Easy peasy today and tomorrow - 1 mindee off until Wednesday next week starting tomorrow but here all day today. Which is cool, she is like one of the family. Found a fab station on our DAB radio called FUNkids which I think is Cbeebies but it plays Raffi and Sesame Street. So on now nice and loud. I think I like it more than my three kiddies but hey ho

Just the 1 mindee today 10 til 4 so we went out into the fields ostensibly to pick blackberries but really I was checking out the sloes (demon sloe gin maker). The sloes round here are not quite ready yet, another fortnight should do it . No mindees tomorrow AND I have booked DSs into Kids Club at local Leisure Centre tomorrow so I will be child free all day .yay.

Born at RAF Changi 1966, mum went out there with dad and toddler (my elder sister) came back with 2 kids. We lived in posh bungalow off-site IIRC, complete with thieving amah (nanny)...long story.....

Shoshable · 16/08/2007 17:24

So did we but mum went out with two toddlers me being the youngest and came back with 4 twins born at changi in 64 second tour was up the other end of the island at the Naval Base. Went back in 2001 it hadnt changed much in the north but Changi was unrecognizable.

ju · 16/08/2007 17:30
