Will try and get on here today, posting soi can find you later.

Back later.

Oh and in case any of you are interested thread with link to pics of my bump

DontDreamItBeIt · 07/03/2008 07:52

Dame you've gone from not sure about sharing to letting the whole world see in record ime I would be wanting to share those pics, too.They are beautiful.

Yes, EHM but I still can't use it as the passenger window dosn't shut and ds would freeze. Big fuss over nothing from dp.Again.

I've got toddler group then my parents visiting, and I have to fit a shop in somewhere, so not mch FLYing will be done today.

damewashalot · 07/03/2008 07:56

Well he had put them up for his photography people but it's putting the link on mnet that seems to have caused all the views, otherwise it would just be people that searched for pregnancy pics that would have come accross it other than his contacts.

Really not sure what came over me, wouldnever do something like this not pg but if I can't be proud of my bump by the 4th one......

sagacious · 07/03/2008 08:00

FunkyGoldStar · 07/03/2008 08:33

Morning Guys.

Had a migraine last night and have a preschool committee meeting this morning so wont get much done.

DD1s birthday party tomorrow too so lots to do.

Minkus · 07/03/2008 08:47

Wow damewashalot what an amazing bump. Agree with sagacious your hair is lovely. DH is a talented man taking photos like that but of course the subject matter was good to begin with

Reading through yesterdays thread, Bewilderbeast I'm not surprised you were tired after doing everything on your list! There was masses.

babyjjbaby hope you are feeling better this morning.

Right my list:
washing in
dishwasher unloaded/reloaded
People and animals fed (no mean feat either ds is having a growing spurt and has eaten 1 bowl cornflakes 1 weetabix 1 bowl of porridge and is now on an apple. He's like the very hungry caterpillar)

To do
Mission (can't do the dining room as it's being decorated at the mo and so no point cleaning, hall will get feather duster treatment though)
S&S bathroom
Strip beds and wash bedding- Adam ants thread last night about how frequently you change sheets embarrassed me into action
Collect prescription from Dr's
Take ds to park to burn off energy before lunch

Friend and her little ones coming over at 2 ish, her eldest and my ds share a birthday and he's got chicken pox poor lve. We've all had it here so I said come over we're immune! Will plant some tomato seeds with the boys if they're up for it.

Have a good day all

Minkus · 07/03/2008 08:47

Minkus · 07/03/2008 09:56

Sagacious I'm not sure if it is time to start the tomato seeds, this is the first time I've attempted them! Would you recommend leaving it till later in the month then? Have bought some compost, seeds and a little windwsill propagator but as a complete novice I would welcome any guidance!

BiancaCastafiore · 07/03/2008 10:01

OK, I'm back (for a while at least, lets hope the staff at work can cope for the rest of the morning...)

sagacious · 07/03/2008 10:14
