Last day of the hols today, so I'm taking the girls out this morning, and have to shop in the afternoon.(I am the rubbish mother who has no plimsolls tofit her dds when they go back to school).

I will be back to FLY properly soon though.

HN - Lovely to read your post yesterday. I do hope you get used to using the wheelchair and find it a help. Take care.

FGS I hope dd2 is feeling better today.

Oh God no Ruby, not rubbish advice at all!!!! Unfortunatley, his mind is one tracked at the moment which is understanable, I mean disease aside, no one likes being in hospital but it's the fact that I know that he can't come home and that I have to lie to him about how long he has been there so he doesent go off on one coupled with the possibility that we are probably going to have a fight on our hands with the hospital because they might warrant hi ok, they did before!

It's the suspension and uncertainty and I know this is a bit childish but all my family and friens will be at my party on Fri but my parents won't be there.

God I'm so sorry for hi jacking the thread.

Unfortunatly we don't Ruby, we had a window of six months when dad was first diagnosed and stubborn man that he is was refused point blank. It's now in the hands of the hospital to determine his capacity, all straightforward you would think but consultant psychiatrist now wants to reasess him.

He was admitted in Feb and we felt then that he wasn't capable of being at home and they discharged him, now we fear they just want him out of the hospital. It's a very complex situation, we don't have the funds to place him privatly and he has no assets to speak of so we are pretty stuffed tbh.

Anyhoo, must go and get ready, but thank you so so much for listening Ruby, your an angel! x

Well I managed to get into town...

Kids are all ready for tomorrow now..
New coats, shoes, knickers/pants, socks, caps(?) (I was blagged into the caps!)

ludaloo · 03/09/2007 16:27

I have had to put all DD1's new uniform and new knickers straight in the wash, as she has sensitive skin....nothing like leaving it to the last minute hey!!
Well done Aufish you've been a tad more organised I see!

ludaloo · 03/09/2007 17:18

Good evening

Just a quick post cos I have loads to do...

Luda my ds seems fine again now - it appears my bro had been forcing him to finish everything on his plate even though ds had said he was full! Resulting in sick everywhere (and all over db! I think he's learnt his lesson)

Jas I finally posted your parcel today, it shouldbe with you tomorrow

Hope any other starting school tomorrow have a great time.

hippipotami · 03/09/2007 20:35

Don't worry luda, and hello yaddah

Porch is looking fab, thanks for asking - dh was so shocked he asked if I was thinking of putting the house on the market

Not done much else today, other than weekly shop and hoovering downstairs. But I did make some muffins to take to a friends' birthday tomorrow.

ludaloo · 03/09/2007 21:20

Hi all

Ah Ha...well done with the porch then hippi tort hello...glad to see you online!

shouldbe ....ah my neighbour once did that to my DS... didn't land on her though

yadd does that mean you think I'm witty....or does it mean you think I'm a blagger??

God...I have rushed about this afternoon!!
~Uniform washed
~Packed lunches made
~Clothes folded and put away
~Clothes laid out ready for the morninf
~Kids all fed, bathed, washed, scrubbed, talc'd, pyjamad, bedded!
~Dishwasher emptied
I've forgotten what else...

Dh has gone somewhere to look at a gearbox!??? Men! who would possibly need their gearbox fixing at this time of night??
(I would be suspicious too, if I hadn't taken the call...and it was most definately a man...)

Anyway...I am off to potter a little bit more, then I'm off to get my head down..
N,Night xx

tortoise · 03/09/2007 21:43

kitchen cleaned

ds's tea for tommorrow night made

washing out and in again

blossomsmine · 03/09/2007 23:30

Evening everyone!!
I have got on ok today, you all seem to have done so so well
I really sympathise about the car luda, how did you manage about seeing to the pets? It is a nightmare when your car is suddenly off the road isn't it I would be happy to walk to school/shops/work etc., but we live too far away from everything
I haven't got a dining room, my porch is small and doesn't need much doing to it, oh just realised i should have cleaned the door inside/outside, will it matter if i do that tomorrow or have i messed up everything now??

Jas · 04/09/2007 07:23
