OK, airing cupboard is done Looks miles better and will be much easier to store things in, a job well done
I've kept some baby bedding in baskets up high so don't feel so bad - have shed a few tears though - can't see dh coming round to baby 3 so I really need to get over these feelings. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't cope with a third anyway

I'll text EHM to say hello from us all

TheMadHouse · 01/04/2008 14:26

well I feel as though I have used my lunch time wisely, I have

Cleared all the ironing - huge pil
Cleared 2 hot spots
Was going to do mission but too windy, so moved all the wood that was banging at the side of the house
Sorted DS1's jigsaw puzzles
Sorted out dinner

I am having a cuppa going to wake DS2 and then off to pick up DS1 from Preschool.

They are then having hait cuts and I will look like the yetti - I say cuts, but they are going to my hairdresser, who will only really trim their fringe, as they are curly, long boys and will be till they first have nits

Hello again

Tip, don't even think a 4.5 yr old is going to help with baking activies. They don't, the just snaffle the chocolate and fuss to lick the spoon.

Quite chuffed tho, I've sucessfully made cookies for the 1st time every Also made a dozen fairy cakes while I was at it.

Cleared a couple of hotspots and did lots of s&sing kitchen while trying to keep the flour/sugar in the bags

Reading practise continues after Peppa Pig

Janni · 01/04/2008 15:44

Well done TMH - you've done loads
Need to pick DD up from nursery - her first time staying for a couple of hours without me .

Then need to: do dinner, bathe DD, reading/piano with DSs, tidy my room and DDs

I haven't received your e-mail, I think mine was playing up a bit, could you possibly send it again?

FunkyGoldStar · 01/04/2008 16:17

Ruby - how could you think such a thing?

Dylsmum - we have Bumble. He's lovely. Do a search on the net as we only got him last year.
