I am up, as DS1 has wet the bed - he is chestey and coughing loads again. So washer is on, bed is part changed, he has had puff, puff and is back asleep, but me well I am trying the MN and hot milk insomnia cure

I think that DS2s spots are all crusted over (checked in the bath last night), so I am going to take them both to playgroup this morning. I think that they need some excercise.

I am also happy, as I managed to make my hospital appointmnet with the plastic surgeon on Thursday later, so I can attend DS1s first pre school concert

BabyJ No make up here, I just cleans, tone and mosturise. I only wear make up if going out somewhere special. I have never really wore it.

Ruby oh the mad world of bathrooms eh Discount was it ashley?

I had a very busy day yesterday, not doing very much in particular really but didn't get a chance to post.

I am just about to hop in the bath, I have the dentist this morning [EEEEKKKK] [EEEEKKKK] [EEEEKKKK}
I was fine until this morning and now I'm getting palpatations and sweaty palms!

(I have been making that noise all morning to myself! LOL)

Anyway...I had better go bathe and do my hair...

Catch you guys later xx

Good Morning peeps (showing my age there, remember Stavros?)
Bjbaby - I was wondering about make up as well, because I don't wear much, but I like to take time to put it on nicely. Yesterday I began to think I would have saved time if I had put on my make up earlier because I was having trouble getting my child out of the house and whilst I hurriedly put on make up he took off his socks and lost them. So I thought if I had been ready I might have been able to get out quicker. So I think today I will put on concealer and this other cool stuff, I bought from Superdrug: lip and cheek tint - it doesn't shift at all, so you can just put lip gloss over if you go out.
I will have to go back and check which day I am on, I think it is day nine. Yesterday was 15 minute declutter (oo spell check doesn't like that word ) which I didn't read until last night, so will try today. It's quite long-winded, I hope I can remember it. Printer is out of ink as well. drat!
Also now have a control journal - is that the correct name? With my routines inside.

SirCharlieStinkySocks · 08/07/2008 10:51

Morning all

Ruby Ooh I bet it was Ashley that asked for discount, he's very up himself.

TMH Hope you got some sleep, hugs coming your way

babyjj Hope you had a lovely birthday

Littlemissloopy Good luck at the dentist later I'm sure you'll be fine

Hope I haven't missed anyone

I have to say I always wear makeup even if it's a scrape of foundation and some mascara.

Well I was awoken at 5 by the soft sound of a 3 year old from the bathroom 'Mammy can you wipe my bottom...' after which I could not sleep so have actually managed to get up on time today!!!

Anyway so far done

Beds aired
Brekkie dishes done
Washing out on line
ds 2 has had pre-school booster jabs (he was a brave boy)

Jas · 08/07/2008 11:05

I'm back and ready to FLY

babyjj No make up since I was a goth and that really is showing my age!
I don't ow any make up at all, but I do get my eyelashes dyed black. Well worth it, and really makes a difference.

LML - Good luck at the dentist. Is this the tooth extraction?

Bianca / TMH I got the emailed stuff, but my computer won't open it.I will forward it to my mums comp and print it off when I visit next.

I will go and get my morning routine finished, then come back with a list...

rowingboat · 08/07/2008 11:06

Got my first DVDs from Lovefilm today, and some Ebay, so everything has ground to a halt.
If anyone wants a £10 Next voucher, you can get one if you do a 30 day free trial through Bounty. I signed up on Saturday, but no voucher yet - hope there's a sale at Next!!
Right off to do reminders and my 15 minute declutter will be a cupboard in the sitting room full of toys, which fall on you when you open the door!
We are off to see if there are any Wall-e tickets left for next Sunday, fingers crossed.

Jas · 08/07/2008 12:41

scatty - Surely if youur dhcan't tell you are wearing makeup, that means you are doing a really good job!
Eyelash tint lasts me about 6 weeks, but I have slow growing lashes. I can't wear mascara as it really irritates my eyes, but the tint has never bothered them.

EustaciaVye · 08/07/2008 12:49

sorry havent read thread. bro and sil now not coming due to death in her family

Back soon. Hope all well.

scattyspice · 08/07/2008 12:58

Jas do you tint your own or get them done? (NB not doing a good job DH thinks I'm about 58 lol)
