lol dame I think I was quite a quiet child so am suprised to even be remembered Would love to know more - what he's up to, where you've settled, where his bro/parents are etc so may contact you when I can CAT again, would that be OK? Feel free to say no

Must go back to work now or I won't be back in time for school pick-up.
Going to friends straight from school so not back till later.
Have a good afternoon everyone

Oh just had a massive scare. DS1 fell all the way down the stairs, tubbling for added effect. God I was beside myself. He seems fine, apart from his forehead hurts a little, but he told me it would be OK if hew could have a lollypop

TMH Ed fell down the stairs on Wednesday morning...well not fell so much as...well, lept really {shock] He was going downstairs, saw the bed sheet hanging over the bannister rail at the top of the stairs and thought 'I'll be Indiana Jones with that!' , leaps to grab hold of it, and...the sheet comes down from the bannister and Ed comes down with a clatter

Huge egg on his head, lots of tears, emergency rush for Dr Teddy and it was like it never happened 10 minutes later.

Cleaned out the oven
Cleaned the hob and door of oven
Mopped kitchen
Refilled the greedy spuggys' bird feeder (we will have North Kirklees' chubbiest wild birds at this rate)
Collected Ed
Changed his clothes

Hope DS1 is OK now TMH

ds2 fell down the stair when he was smaller and was fine, children bounce sure he'll be ok.

Grouchyoscar · 07/03/2008 16:36

1st time Ed went down the stairs assisted by gravity only he was about 12 mths old. I heard a BIG Bumppty Bumppty bump bump and when I peered down the steps he was sat at the bottom rubbing his head

No tears, no nothing just a new experience to chalk off his list really.

Since then we've had a tooth knocked out, an ear drum perforated (by himself!) Run over by an uninsured driver and a tooth extracted by the dentist. He's not 5 and I'm sure SS will be round in due course

Bianca sorry pg brain not com

Thanks for the lovley messages of support and FLY solidarity.

He is fine, just a bit of a headache. We are having fish with home made chips and mushy peas for dinner - his choice

DH should even be home in time (just rang to say he is 10 mins out), so I am holfing it back a little bit.

I have managed to pop out and buy some wrapping paper (only had boyish) and conditioner.

Also cleaned the inside of the fridge due to a spilage

Ruby I know what you mean regarding Friday. I love the weekend, when I have DH as backup!!!

damewashalot · 07/03/2008 17:17

Thanks ruby but I don't really think elegant is the word for me I think dh's photography needs some credit there!

Evening all.
Am very tired again. have done loads of walking again!
Got the last of DS1's clothes ready for school camp.

But my new WM (got in end Nov) has gone wrong. And they can't come out and look at it until WEDNESDAY!!! I need to wash clothes for DS1 to take on camp.

Luckily a neighbour has told me to drop a load round tomorrow for her to wash.

House is pretty messy and i am feeling quite down about it again. i will try and get something done tomorrow although it would benoce to spend one Saturday doing things with the DD's instead of cleaning!

TMH Glad it arrived. mickey is ok. His paw is still hurting him and he is limping badly again. Vets said to give it a week and see how he goes.
