Morning all.
Much admiration for those who find time to Mumsnet before the school run .
I do everything the night before and we have about 45 mins between girls getting up and leaving house.The cat was sat in the middle of busy rd this morning holding up all the traffic so i had to let it in the car just to stop the dumb thing getting killled.
This wasn't too bad though as on my return the Diet coke man started chattting by asking if i always take my cat out with me.
D.C.M is very gorgeous and does something on a digger at building site our road currently has become.
Anyway i digress must go and do something have until 1pm when dd2(birthday girl) returns from pre school,sorry to hear about your morning sickness gem when are you due ?I'm still being sick at 5 1/2 months .It's the lack of energy though that's driving me mad.BBL

FunkyGlassSlipper · 22/05/2008 10:52

Doing well today as DD2 decided to have a morning nap which is very unusual. My bedroom all done except for hoovering. Our ensuite S&S'ed and spare room has been given a onceover too.

Cat very cross with me for not letting him out.
EHM - Dd2 did have CP but is now on the mend thankfully. I'm looking forward to some normality in the house.

tortoise · 22/05/2008 11:18

Morning all.
Had a much better night last night but not awake properly yet! Here in body but mind is on holiday on Jupiter! Did school/pre-school run on auto-pilot.

Tooth isn't so painful today so far. just a bit achey from all the poking etc yesteday. Sticking to softer foods today. Making soup in a minute.

Hope everyone has a good day. Dry here so far but rain due later.

tortoise · 22/05/2008 13:43

WOW! Soup was really yummy! I will be making it again. Have lots left over for tomorrow. Yay! Think i will try and get DC to taste it too. DD's won't eat soup at all.

sagacious · 22/05/2008 13:46


clean table
clear hotspots

onebatmother · 22/05/2008 13:56

Oooh was that my recipe tortoise? Glad you liked it!

(just remembered that I think you can do it even more simply by steaming the peppers with the squash - not so subtle but still v delicious. And a lot quicker.)

tortoise · 22/05/2008 14:01

yes it was onebat. Left out the creme fraise/cream cheese though and added garlic puree. Had a powdery texture though but that didn't make it bad at all. Is that the BNS or the pepper doing that maybe? Thanks for the recipe.
