ludaloo · 22/05/2007 08:04

shouldbe can you mail me the email on fussy eaters (thank you)

ChaCha · 22/05/2007 08:06

Thanks Have posted a few time before but DS2 was only weeks old so never really got much done. Now he's 3 months old and we have a bit of a routine in place which has helped me get organised. The key for me is to be up before anyone else, have achieved so much in past 2 hours and they are only just waking now A cup of tea in peace, a bit of MN, washing on and lunches made all a good start to the day for me, hurray!!

[waves] to all.

Morning everyone

I've been even more poorly over-night my cough/sore throat/cold stopped between 9pm-2am in order for me to have v&d for a few hours before going back to coughing again Feel very wobbly this morning so have no choice but to sit on MN for a bit/watch daytime TV/read/sleep. Soooo much FLYing needs to be done
Tort I'll look into Weymouth...I have no idea where it is either and if it's an hour from you, it'll be at least a couple of hours from me so might be too much travel for the kids....will see what we can do Otherwise you could also plan a day to the Cotswolds

yaddayah · 22/05/2007 09:17

aufish does your repair man do d/washers (mines still not back and i suspect my repair man is hiding as he can't fix it)
shouldbe get some rest

Just having a cup of tea back with a list bit later

Aufish · 22/05/2007 09:27

Good morning everybody, am feeling really tired today and I went to bed at 9.15pm last night, have no idea what is the matter with me.

To do today:

wash up and dry up
shine sink
clean downstairs loo and shine sink
hoover and sweep the floors
2 loads of washing
2 loads of drying
clean and shine the upstairs bathroom
get other half up
need to do some shopping, need to get something to wear to wedding next month
some ironing

Think that is about it but if it isn't I'll do it tomorrow as I think that is enough for me today. DD1 has a friend coming over for tea today and DS2 is going to his friend's for tea so I need to organise something nice for them for their dinner. Will need to get my thinking cap on.

shouldbe · 22/05/2007 09:41

I'm still here. Have dispatched the kids to school and put a load of washing in. Next I plan to close my eyes to the mess and enjoy having an excuse to do nothing much for the morning
Luda (((hugs))) to dd. Your 3 seem to have a run of illnesses so far this year
Glasslipper your dd1 is doing well - my ds still needs pull-ups at night although mostly as a precaution - some nigts he wakes for a wee, others he sleeps through but he almost always does a wee in the night - do you left your dd for a wee during the evening at all?
Should have said earlier Hello ChaCha, good luck with your list today
yadda, Aufish, olive good morning
Hope that's everyone

Big waves back to Yadda .

I'm a little frustrated with DD today her bedroom looks like a bomb has exploded. Everyday I clean and tidy her room the next morning I start all over again. I ask her to keep it tidy she says ok, then just carries on as normal . She's 11 any suggestions??

tortoise · 22/05/2007 10:57

Morning all.
DS's at school and dd1 at pre-school. She cried again. She has been happy to go since sept but now gone back to not wanting to go. I guess it could be to do with ds's being home and all the changes that have gone on.

I have loads of washing to put away! And washing to hang out!

Shouldbe Sorry you are so poorly. (((( hugs ))) Hope you get some rest and feel better soon.

Jelley Weymouth is in Dorset. Google maps are best for looking for places! here
Sorry to far for most to make. One or two other MNers should be coming. Its a big step for me to take because i am not good at meeting new people but i feel its something i need to start doing!

Luda hope your DD2 is better soon.

2 piles of washing put away so far! Loads left to put away though. I suppose i should get back to it!!


shouldbe · 22/05/2007 12:29

Hello again
I've got myself up and dressed ready to collect ds and had a sudden burst of energy so have hung the washing out, dusted and hoovered downstairs and cleaned the cloakroom! Will probably regret it later but at least downstairs is bearable now
Better go and get ds now, I'm hoping he'll be open to a lazy afternoon in the garden when he gets home.

GlassSlipper · 22/05/2007 12:38

shouldbe. we took her for a wee before bed and she just slept through. a few weeks ago she tried and wet the bed, was very upset and wanted pullups next night. this is the 3rd time she has asked for no pullups so we're going with what she wants really. fingers crossed last night wasnt a one off.

tortoise · 22/05/2007 12:56

Well done shouldbe Have a relaxing afternoon.
All washing away that was upstairs. Now need to do the 2 basket loads that were ironed the other day!

grouchyoscar · 22/05/2007 13:40

Hello everyone again

To Do list done now so I feel I have achieved for the day. I will spend all afternoon with my 3.75 yr old DS who is really really taking me for granted.

Oh and I checked on Patch and Austin and cleaned their home out (Snails do lots of pooing - What do I expecy? They're part of the decomposing food chain?)

All I have to do is cram the ironing away and make DS's tea now
