OP posts:

No cup of tea I'm managing sips of water.

I have ds very bored, and dd2 still ill, both here and I have to go to the bank today.

Shannaratiger · 12/10/2007 10:07

Morning everyone.
Hope everyone feeling ill gets the rest they need to feel better soon
i can't believe it's only my day 3. am really getting the hang of FLYing.Have shined sink and washed the floor and am now going to work on writing out my morning routine, might run it by u later if it won't bore u too much!

Yesterday finally found the solution to the black mouldy washing machine rubber seal- was about to pay for a new one! in case anyone else has the same problem need to do a monthly washing machine clean with ariel (recommended) powder for whites on hottist wash. will be buying some on sunday's shop and will let u know the results!

BiancaCastafiore · 12/10/2007 10:11

Oh Jas poor you. Hope you feel better soon x x
FGS hello

I've just waved ds off on his first school trip he was sooooo excited, bless him

My regular routines are still going well I'm really keeping on top of it all and it makes me Thanks to all the support and ideas on here
Shame I can't say the same about my marriage. The whole situation is getting me down at the moment (and has been for months)

I could do with doing this mission today, I avoided mopping the floors earlier in the week because ds had his friend to play and they were in and out of the garden all afternoon in their muddy shoes. I'll get it done in a bit.
I'm going to start on some homemade Christmas presents today too

Have a good day everyone

FunkyGlassSlipupandyouredead · 12/10/2007 10:25


I'm back. In my 15 minutes this morning I have mopped the hall, dining room & kitchen floor (all laminate), and I have checked the freezers to see what we have and throwing out of date things.

So this week. I have done EVERYTHING on my kitchen list except for clean the oven (which I loathe).

I have done my morning routine today too.

It is so amazing how much you can do when babies are sleeping and older ones are out of the house.

bianca I have just emailed you.

Have done my routines, have done mission

HAve a good morning all !

FunkyGlassSlipupandyouredead · 12/10/2007 11:04

Hi Trinity

Take a deep breath. Go and clear your sink of all the crap and make it shiny. Dont worry about doing anything else today.

How is gecko?

OP posts:
TrinityRhino · 12/10/2007 11:27

gecko is struggling with teeth and managing to find, insert in mouth and choke on every little sodding, stupid, fucking tiny
thing or piece of crap toy that exists!!

Simply · 12/10/2007 11:28

Hello to all. Sorry, I seem to have come to the thread really late. I am making a huge mess here, trying to sort out the spare bedroom.

Trinity I can sympathise. Really I can. I think Funky's suggestion is a good one.

BC I'll be in touch.

Jas Sorry that you're still unwell. Can you do the banking you need to do online or ask someone else to do it for you?

Back later.

FunkyGlassSlipupandyouredead · 12/10/2007 11:34

Trinity - babyglass is just the same. Dribbling everywhere, smearing me with snot and moaning too. She is also trying to eat the hair from DD1s my little ponies .

Take a step back. Clean your sink. And then later gather up all offending items into a box/bag until you are able to deal with them.

OP posts:
TrinityRhino · 12/10/2007 11:46

big box to put all tiny fuclinkg annoying things in sounds very good

why do the sensible ideas not come to me when I am feeling desperate

Jas · 12/10/2007 11:49

Because you are too busy feeling knackered and removing said items from Geckos mouth.

We made it to the bank (I did have two friends offer o run errands for me, but I needed to be there in person)

I bought a pie and a carrot for the dds tea, so that is sorted. I need to get ds settled, spend ten minutes tidying up the worst of the mess here and then lie down again now.

thanks FGS haven't had any emails though

Trinity look after yourself, I back everything FGS said

I've had one of those desperate sobbing mornings (please re-assure me that we all have them from time to time?!)but need to pick myself up now and get my act together. I have managed to do all my routines and have just mopped the floors so am staying ahead of everything house-wise, it's just my emotions which are in turmoil HAVE to sort this mess out

Simply · 12/10/2007 13:32

Ruby Well done! I considered doing it this year but I've just got too much on already atm. You'll be great, I'm sure, and I'll call you anything you like!

BC I've e-mailed you.

You should see the landing and the kitchen! Pencils, pens, rulers, knex, toys everywhere!

SpookyBearistheSpookyBear · 12/10/2007 13:34

Sorry everyone's so miserable and ill.
