Morning

I have been up since about 6 ish washing bedding! DD2 was sick all night and managed to be sick in two different beds!
Ds woke early and was sick also DD2 has a runny bum which is making her cry

School Sports Day today....if the rain holds off. DD1 was sick Friday night, so I'm hoping she will be ok.

Ooooooh have to go DS has just been sick again

Luda hope the los make a quick recovery - sounds nasty
Glass hope you're OK

I went to bed early and slept like a log till the alarm went off at 6.30! Feeling much brighter for it so hope to make some more progress on the FLY front. Ds has his first school visit today ( my little boy! Starting school! He's still only small - not 4 till Aug) and I have to sit through an hours meeting with the head (anxiety to be expected ...) Thinking positive - I WILL be fine

Better go and get these kids to school/pre-school, it's sunny at the moment so I hope to take the bikes
Back later x

EHM · 04/07/2007 09:00

OP posts:
gibberish · 04/07/2007 12:02

Aaaw I'd love to have sunflowers

yadda and julie I am honestly quite normal . I don't do the huge list in a oner. I take bits out of it each day to do. I try to have the whole list done each week though but spread it out. My problem is that I am at work 4 days so have to do a LOT on a Wednesday and Saturday morning. So I'm really just doing what everyone does but cramming it into a few hours. It looks worse than it seems. I also try to clear out one cupboard a week to try to keep things organised. It really does work. The straight jacket is a bit of a hinderance though...

EHM · 04/07/2007 12:02

Dr throughly examined Ellie, she said its probably been a very tiny burst blood vessel with the coughing or nose bleed that came down her throat & out her mouth. She's a bit washed out looking, but just ate some egg mayo sandwich & some almond croissant. My nerves are shattered.when I was walking home i burst into tears

julez lol at dp loosing arms my dh is unable to see anything in a draw or a cupboard unless it jumps out & grabs himGlad you are happy with the test, sounds like you've been through the baby mill.
gibberish hope your day improves. new kitchen fab, but sounds a nightmare.Crickey what a list
yadd Hi good luck with that very big list
luda pmsl @ Die Germs Diesorry sports day is cancelled

I am off to hang some washing out, whilst Ellie mashes the remainder of her
almond croissant into to the high chair

ludaloo · 04/07/2007 12:13
