Morning all. Porridge I think is needed!

Thank goodness my 4 year old mindee is going back to preschool this morning. I love him to bits but he can talk for England and there's only so many times a day I can answer the question 'Why?'.

Morning! Although I love my time off, I don't half like a bit of routine! I start in about 5 minutes, right through until 5.45. Already had a bad start though. I had to get up really early today, to clean up the house, since I did nothing all day yesterday apart from sleep and I picked up a bag by the front door, only to find a frog sitting underneath it! I have a HUGE phobia about frogs! So I did what any sane person would do - I screamed and ran around in circles until DH came running down the stairs to see who was killing me! This was 6.40 this morning!

Good morning all! My ds is getting like that SM, he is so ready for nursery! I organised all my toys over the weekend and got my accounts up to date! {preen} Feeling all organised!

Morning all

Glad to be busy again! Got another school this this week so important we leave on time (not had this for ages). Just hope au pair brings the girls at correct time as I can't wait!!


MaureenMLove · 29/10/2007 08:07

How you feeling Looney? I've been so busy with a life this weekend, I've barely been on here since Thursday!


bloodsuckingLOONEY · 29/10/2007 08:10

Up and down Mo, just glad this week will keep me busy again. I go from thinking 'it's definitely all over and I just want to get pis*ed and numb the pain' to 'oh, I can't risk anything as what if all is ok'.

Still no real symptoms, just lots of lightheadedness but that will be down to the low blood pressure.


MissInvisible · 29/10/2007 08:11

Hi all,
Well I should be starting work again today after my holiday but I am not working as I have mumps .
I started with the symptoms early last week, but I feel much better now and a lot of the swelling has gone down but the doctor says I have to take this week of for definite and maybe next week too as I may still be infectious !!! I really do not want to take any more time off, this week is bad enough and I don't think my parents will be too happy with any more time either.
I plan to catch up with my paperwork this week (yes I am that bored!).


LoveMyGirls · 29/10/2007 11:47

Morning all,

FO - Glad to hear you're feeling well enough to be constuctive, can you pop round to mine when you finish with yours

LT - Still got fingers really tightly crossed! Don't get doing too much this week esp in the evenings.

KS - I want to have that organised feeling! I did paint last weekend so house is looking good and i've recently sorted alot of business paperwork but still have my accounts and general household paperwork to do.

ML - you'll be shattered later

MI - I havent cleaned at all over the weekend either as we went away to visit dp's sister, felt nice to know my house was tidy and i didnt have to do a thing!

Hoping for a chilled week this week, dd2 has been sleeping the day at the weekend so i'm hoping she wants to carry that on so I can get things done in the day sometimes and not feel so stressed.


bloodsuckingLOONEY · 29/10/2007 12:06

LMGs - cheers mate. I'm no longer in pain and the bleeding has stopped so hard to not do things as feel normal. I AM being careful and not rushing around so much though and dh will be helping in the evenings. Just feels odd as I feel so normal now (well, emotions aside )


mumlove · 29/10/2007 12:13

Lunchtime and all the little monkeys (mindees) are now eating after a busy morning of playing with different toys and colouring. I may get to eat sometime during the day.


MaureenMLove · 29/10/2007 13:24

My mindee is just dropping off to sleep, so I can get my act together for Rainbows tonight. I might even find time for a spot of lunch! I'm still shattered from the weekend! I'm too old to go out on Friday and Saturday nights! I won't be doing that again in a hurry!


LoveMyGirls · 29/10/2007 14:00

please help, I am really not sure what to do?


MaureenMLove · 29/10/2007 14:37

Tis done, my sweet!


LoveMyGirls · 29/10/2007 14:45

Thanks, I really feel like crying today, I miss dd1 and the support of my family, usually I can just call my mum but they're all on hols. I'm finding it really hard with dd at the moment, she is probably missing her sister, at least dd1 will be home on wednesday. We just had a weekend away so I should feel rested but dd2 has only been home 3hrs and im shattered already!! On the bright side mindee has been an angel all day, I swear they take it in turns!

SpooKAYsamuels · 29/10/2007 15:57

I've posted on thread too.


Katymac · 29/10/2007 15:57

I'm documenting my Risk Assessments today so that everything is ready for next September (EYFS)

I should only have to do one big paperwork session - then it will just be tick lists - unless something is broken/damaged/a new risk
