TTT Thanks for the link, whoever gets here first does it, so feel free.

Also the playhouse people delivered the wrong side again

To do

Hoover upstairs
Iron
Move PC to spare room
Mop Downstairs
Add to e-bay baby banz sunglasses
Work on spare room
Finnish weekly shop - aldi
DS1 to preschool

Morning guys. Swimming in a bit. DH away tonight so should get to catch up on housework later...

intravenouscoffee · 01/05/2008 09:09

Hi all. DH on holiday for the next couple of weeks so not sure how often I'll be on - need to pretend I actually do some parenting when he's working rather than just being on MN all day
Right, need to leap into action this morning. Been v lazy and disorganised so far, morning routine not even done! Also need to wash kitchen floor which is covered in doggy paw prints and get the bedding all washed. Right, off to achieve something!

EHM · 01/05/2008 12:14

TTT Thanks for thread & mission. Hope all goes well with your show tomorrow. 'break a leg' I hope thats the appriopriate saying
TMHSorry to hear that ds's didn't sleep well last night. Hope to get to chat to you later. Try & get some rest if you can.
FGS enjoy swimming
Coffee hope you have nice time with dh during the next 2 weeks. I always find when dh is here, my routine goes out the window.
jas I think RR idea of leaflet drop is a fab idea.
bianca wishing dd a speedy recovery.
jelly love the name, good luck with the list.

Ellie is still snotty & a bit clingy although appears to be in a better moody than yesterday. Which wasn't helped by the fact that the men that came yesterday(should have been here a week ago) took over 4 hours to fit the shower screen, bath panel & new door. He still has to come back to reseal bath panel, fit door handle & lock as he broke the new door handle whilst trying to fit it yesterday

Clothes packed, just have to pack toiletries. Washing basket emptied, washed now on line & highdryer. Will iron once dried

Still need to do quick general tidy throughout, hoover & mop floors. I've had lunch, off to prepare ellie's.

Ludaloo · 01/05/2008 12:22

Hi all

Didn't get a chance at all to get on the comp yesterday.
Only just had a spare moment now!
Had doctors this morning (I am going to be sterilised....lots of thought gone into it and it is what I'd like to do) then toddler group.
Have also been to open a different bank account to manage my Avon stuff...and other bits and bobs...the branch is in the next village along, which is waaaay more convenient than town! So I can hopefully get cheques paid into there quickly and that money won't get mixed up with housey/general bills type money.

House is suffering again ATM as I seem to be having a busy week so far!

That in mind, I'd better get on

scattyspice · 01/05/2008 12:41

Phew everyone is very busy.

We're away for the weekend tomorrow too so need to go to Lidl after work to get nappies and larger (just the essentials LOL).

Good luck with the show TTT (what show? sounds exciting!)

IVC I tell dh I'm checking my bank balance (he must wonder why i still have no clue about my money).

jellyshoeswithdiamonds · 01/05/2008 13:01

Teeny - GL with the show tomorrow. Enjoy your swim.
EHM - TY, I was a bit stumped for a name to join MN, so went with my last purchase . Have a nice weekend.
Luda - thats a very big & brave decision to make.
scatty - your essentials list looks like mine, only wine instead of nappies

All the errands are done, apart from the food shop and credit, will do that with DD after the school run.

TODOs:-

  • peg out lol x 3 (2 from last night)
  • empty dw
  • clear breakfast dishes to dw
  • clear sink and drainer of stuff that can't go in dw
  • hoover DSs room (move furniture)
  • s&s bathrooms
  • clean mirrors
  • 2 piles of clothes to ironing baskets
  • clear desks in computer room
  • hoover upstairs

HI All

I have just spoke to the yummy EHM

I am still knackered and shopping didnt help, the boys were a challenge

So I am lunch
Shopping is away
DS2 is napping
DS1 is at preschool

Off to battle with the ironing

damewashalot · 01/05/2008 13:33

You all seem so busy and get so much done!

I have managed my morning routine and fed us lunch and hoovered, just need to put some more washing on, have no idea about tea yet though

Jas · 01/05/2008 13:43

Hello. I'm having lunch but have not achieved any FLYing at all so far, so need to post so I can comeback and report my progress.

I hopeEveryone who is away for the weekend has fun

Grouchy Well done on your no stick day

Ludaloo Will you have to wait long to be sterilised.?
I would seriously consider it if the coil wasn't such asuccess for me, too.

Ruby Thanks. Leaflet dropping is a good idea. I am intending to get cards printed for him, so might do them. we'll have to plan where to drop (ie not too local as 50% male population round here is also in the building trade!)

dylsmum1998 · 01/05/2008 14:55

hi all, not read thread properly hope all poorly dc are feeling better- and tired mummies got some rest!

we've had a busy day at soft play. dd was in a gorgeous mood so lots of giggling nd fun.

and rescued a few upset/lost children. all except one said thanks. one was really rude as she said, excuse me she's with me. i was very calm and said oh thats good cos she was very upset she couldnt see you and asked me for help so i was taking her round where tables were as she couldnt remember where you were sat.
was just trying to help, i can understnad being worried if you saw someone walking with your child but dont jump at them before you know. i was just tryig to help . i've never been able to ignore an uspet child, would hate it if people just ignored mine in that situation. those places are big and scary!! LOL
have managed to wash up, tidy, sweep, wash floor, unload and reload washer. off to collect ds now he wants to get his hair cut after school today
back later

Jas · 01/05/2008 15:03

jelly - dd1s isn't too bad. It is tiny so not alot of room for mess, but dd2 and ds' is scary. I'm considering putting ds in the bottom bunk soon (he is still in his cot) but fear itwill be worse if he has any access at all when I put him to bed

Dylsmm - She was probably being defensive bacause she knows she should have been paying more attention herself.

Nutsaboutchocolate · 01/05/2008 15:07

Afternoon Everyone

I have had a quick read through todays thread, though my brain is not working so forgot most of what has been said.<br /> <br /> <strong>Bianca</strong> I hope DD is feeling better soon.<br /> <strong>anyone</strong> going away for the weekend bit I hope you all have a great weekend away. Lets hope the weather is good and the sun comes out to play. <br /> <br /> Lots of Flying today, I wont be though as Im still suffering and finding it very hard to move today.

DD is much better and is playing with her toys and making a mess. But is t is great to see her playing again after 2 days of not really wanting to move and go and play.

Grouchy Well done for not having to use your stick today. I getting some Pink crutches (elbow) to use instead of the NHS ones I have now. They are like the NHS ones but all the plastic parts are pink I might get some all black ones as well one day soon. @ £48 a pair they are not cheap though.

It was lovely and sunny here when I started this post. Now it has gone really dark and I have had to put the lights on to see what I doing.
