Have a good day everyone

BiancaCastafiore · 18/12/2007 09:40

Thanks EHM
Hello Jen

I did go and enjoy drinks last night Felt very pleased to even go - a year ago there's no way I would have gone to any of these parties and esp not on my own so I felt very proud of myself for making such good progress Feeling a bit wiped out today though so need to look after myself a bit. Can't quite shake the close to tears feeling...

PS - Where's Luda? Haven't seen her for a few days....

EHM · 18/12/2007 09:54

Bianca good for you! Hope you are feeling brighter soon. I was thinking the same this morning about luda but wasn't quite sure when was the last time she had posted.

ludaloveschristmas · 18/12/2007 10:14

Hi All ...I am here...just haven't had a chance to post...spent all day yesterday walking everywhere as dh had the car, and I had a doctors appointment, ds was at school, and cried I had hoped the crying and refusing to go was a nursery thing....he is there all day tomorrow!
spent most of the afternoon yesterday cutchying my friends new baby...he is gorgeous!

I will catch up on the thread in a mo xxx

BiancaCastafiore · 18/12/2007 10:18

Yay! Hello Luda
that your ds is tearful at school, hope it soon passes x
at cuddling a new baby!

Jas · 18/12/2007 10:29

Hello everyone

DP is ill in bed, and I've sent dd1 to school (she's still not tha well bu it is he Chrismas party and she was desperate to go), so I'm hoping o get lots done. It is the last day of term tomorrow

I've done the shopping and er, go dressed. I didn't do the mince pies last night as I didn't have enough micemeat, so I'll do them tonight instead.

I need a huge list, but feel I'l be wasting ime wriing it today, so I'm just going to start in the kitchen and work my way through the house. I'll report back hourly I think to keep myself going.

Bianca Glad you enjoyed going out lats night. Ignore your dad. He's forgotten what real children are like.
FIL has a very rosy view of his childen when they were young and ours never quite come up to scratch. I ignore (Helped my the fac tha I know he didn't actully see his youngest children for almost their whole childhood!)

ludaloveschristmas · 18/12/2007 10:41

[whispers....Bianca I have to admit even I felt a teensy bit broody! he is all snuffly and wrinkly, and kept doing that funny straining face they do in their sleep!]

GO bad luck with the interview...keep at it though

Jas I keep meaning to make mince pies too...my friend made some mince pie rolls with puff pastry and they were really yummy...

Bianca I'm sorry to hear of your stress...I am so sorry I wasn't around yesterday to chat to...my MSN is playing up, but I have left a rather garbled message on Facebook for you! Hope you are ok...and I agree with Jas, try and ignore your dad, I have met your DC several times now, and I think they are gorgeous...and have been very well behaved! Kids are Kids aren't they at the end of the day.

Hello to everyone

Right better get off and collect DS, get some coal, go into town to the bank, collect DD1, cook tea......blah blah blah! Its never ending isn't it!

Jas · 18/12/2007 11:16

Never ending...absolutely.

I'm quite as it is good drying day, I remembered to put the w/m on early, and dp has forgotten where he put the back door key so I can't hang he washing out.

Rest of the kichen is clea though.Startingon the sitting room.

Jas · 18/12/2007 12:15

Siting room done.
Shouting at dp done.
Key sill not found.
Dining room next.

ATortIsForLifeNotJustChristmas · 18/12/2007 13:41

Afternoon all.
I am freezing as usual!
Haven't managed to achieve much today other than some much needed shopping! Feeling a bit wiped out today. Probably because DD2 was awake at 4.30 coughing for about an hour!

Bianca for you. Mean of your Dad to say that. All DC have bad days and are more likely to test another adult who is looking after them!

I have a LDC in the oven. Going to take it for the adults at Toddlers Xmas party tomorrow.

Just having a cup a soup before going back out in the cold to pick DD1 up. DS's at their Dads tonight. I think i will tell him he can have xmas eve and part of xmas day if he wants. It will make Xmas day longer though which is a good thing. It won't be all presents ripped open and over by 8am!

ATortIsForLifeNotJustChristmas · 18/12/2007 14:05

DD2 wants to type! She has already posted on another thread when i was icing the LDC!

Here she is..

Actually, was it one of you lot who sent me the chainmail overload message thing on facebook



I have just emptied the bin. Exhausted now so will have a cuppa before hoovering. Not doing anything is pretty boring really...

ImdreamingofaGROUCHYxmas · 18/12/2007 15:29

Done very little today

Did my morning routines then we went to see the bank manager for an hour. (We are doing fine thankfully] Then we did the Xmas food shopping.

While DH put the shopping away I went Xmas tree hunting with FIL. Got one, home, make lunch for the family then PC/MN time.

To Do

Dust light fittings on staircase
Wrap some pressies
Organise Ed's gifts

I'm shattered TBH, ho-hum

JingleyJen · 18/12/2007 15:31

So have had a busy morning.
DS1 is home from school pooing his pants every time he coughs or sneezes so I guess I am putting another washing load on this afternoon!!

The bathroom man has been and there has been a mix up in communications between him and Dh - I ave him booked in to start 7th Jan (have been waiting since September) He didn't feel we had confirmed that date so may be able to fit us in before EASTER!!!

Anyway - too late now.

Bathrooms cleaned
Kitchen cleaned
Anti bacterial wiped almost everything
Seen old lady (who now also has D&V and it takes her 10 mins to physically get to the loo!)
Took in pressies for the teachers - good job as it looks like DS1 won't be in for the last day of term.

Still to do
mince pies
ironing
hoovering

tort your little ones typing seems to make more sense than my Dh's writing!
gibber & Ludda Hi

gibberish · 18/12/2007 15:36

Hah! Found the culprit!

Hi Jen and grouchy

Please someone give me a boot up the backside. I shouldn't be here.

BiancaCastafiore · 18/12/2007 15:56

Gibberish I do hope it wasn't me!
