Morning all. Early start again for me, DD woke up at 6.20 because of an annoying cough.
Washing underway but that's about it, think it'll be a lazy day today

Well done Trinity

I know Jas, I was ed too - am a bit worried that I've committed a big no-no though by admiting it Small world indeed

I need to hoover upstairs but the cat has just settled for a nap right in the middle of the landing and I haven't got the heart to scare him with the hoover [big softie] I'll do the bathroom instead and hope to hoover later.

Mornin (or is it afternoon?)

Lovely pictures Dame. I had tiny bumps with both mine, probably only as big as yours by the end! Yours is lovely though.

Trinity, my car is manky! I gave a colleague (who I didn't know very well) a lift to a meeting once, and she spent the whole meeting with a sweet paper stuck to her skirt! I was too to tell her.

Have just remembered my sister is coming to stay this WE so need to wash the sheets for the sofabed when I get home (have been sleeping on sofabed with DD this week). Also need to go to Lidl.
Happy weekend all (when it comes).

Ready for a sit down and some lunch now Getting a bit anxious about outing to friends house this afternoon...

Dame Erm...a clue....his older bro was friends with my older bro. I think your dh is a year or two older than me but our mums were also friends so we all knew each other. Can't think how old we were...maybe 11ish for a few years?..Cotswold town beginning with Ch

BiancaCastafiore · 07/03/2008 13:27

Aftternoon All

Killing time until 2 when I can clean out the oven (the Mr Muscle will have worked by them)

Ed managed to get to school in the proper clothes today. Yesterday the school sold off some old books at 10p each so I let Ed get £1.50's worth to salve my guilty feelings. He got Kipling's 'Just So' stories, Peter and the Wolf and a Dick King Smith treasury. This morning his teacher said he had a great day being CR, which is great to know

DH got up this morning and helped with the morning routines again...I have tried to put the idea that he may be hiding something terrible from me (IYKWIM) and I'm just thankful for the help.

Got back from the coffee morning and Womens' Day event at the Children's centre and

Put Ed's Market Stall away
Tidied up his toy storage area
Apply Mr Muscle to oven
Vac front room
Mop front room floor
Mop hall floor
Mop Bathroom floor

To Do

Clean out the oven
S&S hob
Collect Ed
Do reading and writing practice with him

Hope all of you are all well I'm off to clean the oven.

He says hello back I think my boys are lovely too, but it's always nice when someone else says so
When he was listing possible people before your clue you were on the list of girls he hadn't snogged which could well be a good thing

Sorry for all the non flying chat girls, I shall go and try to do something, 5 x 2yr olds have trashed my playroom and living room and haven't even done the bathroom yet but did make yummy cookies
