I am dreading tomorrow. Roofwork is starting, Im dreading the mess, the dust, having to make tea for builders! the scaffolding is up already.

I have to go get DS at 3, then Im gonna take him the park and then straight to get DP from work so will report back later on this evening!

Julie xxx

grouchyoscar · 10/07/2007 15:03

Done my to do list

General tidying was getting on my hands a knees to scrub the bathroom floor. (I had to eliminate the source of that Trainspotting toilet smell), Harvesting DS's spring onions and discovering the source of the decimation of his pea plants.

Didn't put Ed in his playing out clothes...he did it himself (bit of a breakthrough there, first time from scratch)

So, anything happening?

FoeGlassSlipper · 10/07/2007 15:05

House is a tip. DD1 been asleep since 1.00 (unusual). DD2 just dropped off so DD1 bound to wake up again soon....think I might just go and make a cuppa and clear up when DH gets home...
