Morning All

Very much the same last night up every 1.5 hours with the Ellie due to itchyness, poor wee thing. Started at 11.45, I went to bed at 11.15 after feeding & watering & clearing up after everybody.
Up again at 130,then again at 3ish, 430ish & Ellie has been back to sleep since then. Have reapplied cream & changed nappy given her a drink at 6am. So point in doing list today as it will be endless amounts of food & tea/coffee.

Hope you all have a lovely day

shouldbe hope you are feeling ok today{{hugs}}

EHM Do you have your inlaws with you (I'm losing track of who's doing what)? Can you get them to take E out for a walk/trip to the park and go back to bed for an hour. Lack of sleep is such a killer.

I will be back todo a list later. It is the last day of term and I need to tidy up today. They fisish school an hour early, and I have toddler group this moring, so not sure how much I will get done. I need to get started now.

shouldbe · 30/03/2007 07:44

Good Morning
EHM make use of the Grandparents and be sure to get some rest {{{hugs}}} Take care x
Jelley It's our last day of term too - and dd breaks up at lunchtime so I need to be on top of the housework this morning - it always goes downhill quite quickly once the lo's are at home for the holidays....

Will be back later with a list - ds needs acuddle NOW and dd is still asleep so we need to get a shift on...

morning all. tough few days so not much done. even forgot ewhat zone we're in

have a good day all.

SimplySparkling · 30/03/2007 09:01

Hello to all. I have a new name but it is linked to the last one and there is a similarity to the one before that so I'm sure you'll guess who I am. Please don't out me as I'm making a fresh start.


EHM Sorry to hear that you've had such a poor night. Take care of yourself to rest up today and I hope you have a better night tonight.

Jelley School is finishing here too. I'm not in work now for 2 weeks and I want to really get on well in the house. I really need to have the spare bedroom ready for use and atm it is a tip! Your list is a long one. Mine will be tiny in comparison, I'm sure.

glitterfairy Did you buy from the new Lakeland summer catalogue? There are some nice lunch bags in there, I see. Did I read on a recent thread (I tried to catch up a bit last night) that you've lost weight recently? I hope to lose a few pounds in order to fit into my summer clothes. I find the swimming pool really very cold but I suppose I should go a few times in the hols with the kids. That and walking the dog daily and going a bit further than before should help. Plus eating heathily, obviously.

glassslipper Sorry to hear that you've had a tough few days. I hope you have a lovely w/e.

A quick rant. Just heard a phrase on the radio "What goes on tour, stays on tour." I hate that. Behave yourselves away as you would at home! Grrrr!

Right. My list:-

~ unloaded d/w and reloaded
~ w/m on
~ bird feeder filled
~ recycling stuff to r. bin
~ all breakfasted and off to work/school

To do:-
~ Get showered and dressed
~ Do washing up as I really didn't feel like it last night
~ Strip the beds and wash
~ Ring the council - again!
~ I'm not saying what else but I'm sure you can guess!

shouldbe · 30/03/2007 09:06

Hello SimplySparkling ...please don't tell me those jobs are still outstanding?!

SimplySparkling · 30/03/2007 09:11

Hi shouldbe. Was going to say that I'll get on if you will and we can meet up at around 11am or sometime to swap notes, then refreshed and saw your new post. Yep, you're right, they are!

shouldbe · 30/03/2007 09:12

SimplySparkling · 30/03/2007 09:14

shouldbe · 30/03/2007 11:10

Did I beat you back then SS? Hopefully you're packing up those returns as I type

SimplySparkling · 30/03/2007 11:12

shouldbe How have you got on? I've showered and dressed; stripped all the beds and gathered the bath towels ready for the w/m; prewashed some clothes ready for the next load and taken clothes off the airer ready for ironing. I'm going to have a cup of tea and a break until 11.15am and then crack on again until 12.30.

Ruby I was tamping last night about someone in work who said something very rude about someone and said "And if I hear that repeated, I'll know it has come from you." I was shocked but just said something like "Oh, I don't remember things in order to be able to repeat it." This was a few weeks ago. I only told my dh last night (too complicated to explain the loyalties pulling me) and he said that that was unacceptable and that I could have said "That is unacceptable" at the time and should feel justified in saying that if it happens again. I am tempted to report it to HR or seek advice. I'll think about it. Sorry to rant. I can sympathise with your situation.

yadda Have you got me yet?

shouldbe · 30/03/2007 11:13

Well, I can't hang about waiting......ds is keen to head out for a walk and the sun is shining atm so I'll call back once we're home

shouldbe · 30/03/2007 11:13

SimplySparkling · 30/03/2007 11:14

shouldbe. No, I haven't!

shouldbe · 30/03/2007 11:14

SimplySparkling · 30/03/2007 11:15
