Good morningall[smie]

Yet again, I was up too late (midnight) and back down too early (5am) DS went back to bed so I got an extra hour dozing in bed, but that is still not enough sleep. If you lot see me on here tonight, please kick me off!

BewilderBeast - I hope you ot some rest and feel better able to face a new day today

Tortoise -I'm not great at family meals, but once you have expanded your repertois of meals I recommend a basic meal plan.....takes all the thinking about what have I got in, and what can I do every day out of the equation.

I have my new routine written out and ready to o. I have got the washing machine on already. I will go and prep the porridge and make the lunches before the dds wake up.

Mornin all.

Tis mission I really need.

Jas, that really doesn't sound like much sleep!

Simply · 19/09/2007 08:29

I'm still here as I just wanted to e-mail Radio 2 about a Welsh word they didn't understand. It was "cwtsh" which is very roughly "cuddle". It conveys more feeling than "cuddle" actually. I'm sure they've had piles of e-mails and phone calls. Ah, yes they have. "safe place" or "cuddle".

EHM You're too kind! I believe in the phrase "If you can't be a good example then at least you can serve as a terrible warning" and I usually achieve the latter! I'm looking forward to personalising the routines to suit me and my household. i.e first task of the day is to get up and let the dog out. Sad or what!

SlightlyMadSweden · 19/09/2007 09:11

Checks in thru peephole keeping HarleyD company....looks a bit scarey here, shall be come back in 6 days when we have finished babysteps?

ludaloo · 19/09/2007 09:16

Morning everyone

tort hurrah...brilliant news, I'm very pleased your DD seems to be settling now

simply do you pronounce that word as "cutch"? I have always used the word cutch...or cutchy to mean cuddle...had no idea it was welsh!

Well morning routine going well...

D/W is loaded with breakfast stuff
Clothes all picked up

Already hoovered!
Kitchen wiped down
Pets all fed

ludaloo · 19/09/2007 09:18

EHM Happy Anniversary!

BiancaCastafiore · 19/09/2007 09:26

Morinng all

Neverenough I'll CAT you too if you like
Bewilder hope you have a good day today
Jas You are doing so well at the moment! Maybe I should do a proper routine
EHM Happy Anniversary!
Simply can I have an email about your control journal too please
Harleyd and SMS It's not that scarey - honest!

We've had problems with dd not wanting to go to school this morning so my routine isn't quite up to it's usual standard but I can get the last few bits done quickly enough. poor dd was accused by a boy in her class of hurting him yesterday and even though all his frineds say she didn't do anything and the whole situation was dealt with by the teacher dd was very very upset and worried about going into school this morning We had lots of tears from her till quite late last night and then she'd wet the bed this morning (unusual unless she's poorly/worried) I had to talk to the teacher this morning (who was suprised dd was worried as it'd had been resolved yesterday) and leave an upset dd in class - not easy
(you have my sympathies tort )

I need to do the mission today - our medicine cupboard could do with a clear out as could the kids socks

I also need to tackle another couple of hotspots downstairs, and do some tidying in the garden.

Was waiting for a lovely day to take the girls out to a nearby farm play place (I'm on holiday this week) and here's the sun shining brightly but have to go to the funeral . That's sounds awful but it is just typical.

Helllooooo !

Waves to harleyd and sms welcome !

Rubbish morning for me, ds got stung on the face by a wasp in the school playground queueing up for school, at first I thought he'd been punched .. his eye was shut and so swollen.

Theres a wasps nest by the footpath to school (which according to the council they dealt with last Friday ) I had a very heated disscussion to put it mildly, when I walked ds back to school at 10am (went back to give him some piriton) the council was sheepishly spraying the nest

I can be very scary when riled.

So routine is a bit shot at the mo

Got to get on !
