How do you get going again after pregnancy?
Don't know how readable that picture is, hope you can make it out.
That soup sounds delicious MM, would be great for me at the moment too, haven't got any tomatoes of my own though, would have to buy some. Glad S has perked up so quickly.
CM, good luck with keeping J still, is it illegal to tie him to a piece of heavy furniture?
meant to say TTId - amazing news. wooohhooooooo!!
i have had a panic today. have had irritating itching under left boob and have a mole and a tiny pinprick blemish in that area, but not exactly where the itching was. it has been bothering me for a bit on and off but i have kind of ignored it. then today i was digging around there because it was bothering me and i thought i found a lump. so i got an emergency appointment this afternoon at the GP's. lovely lady doctor who thinks it may be the wire of my underwired bra ?? but anyway, it's not a lump. i have 'nodular' breasts. how lovely... of course my whole boob is now sore from excessive prodding. i am a plank really!
Just waved goodbye to hubby and M as they're off on their camping trip. It may be sunny this morning but its 6c, so rather them than me! They went in our friends large estate car and the boot hardly shut! So amusing..........just hope they escape before the rain tomorrow.
Now, what shall Eric and I do with ourselves........
We have these for the twins and Reece and yes would recommend. (At cheaper end of the scale!)
OMG Janie. I would have not been amused at 5am either. LOL sorry had to laugh!
We have maxi-cosi roadsters for the twins, they are ace, although Josh now finds his shoulders don't fit that well. So not sure what we do next!!?? They have the plastic clip to go behind the seat head rest too. Will probably get some basic boosters for the boys when S needs one of their seats.
Fabulous day yesterday. Just an easy morning at home after 8 miles run for me and 2.5km swim for hubbie, bit of gardening then went to Westonbirt for the afternoon. Was glorious, such a magical place in the autumnal sunshine.
Hubbie made us fab seafood risotto while I had some sudden inspiration after half a glass of wine and designed a garden I've been struggling with all week. Often works like that, suddenly it just clicks and it takes me no time at all to get the shapes just right. Sat and watched Dr Who with the boys which I love doing.
Very tough run this morning, but very pleased. 16 miles in 2 hours with 2 x 3 mile sections at 6:30 pace. I just about managed it. First 3 miles bang on 6:30s, 2nd set was 6:35s but had 2 huge hills and the rain had started so I am pleased with that.
Boys had a brilliant time at the race track on friday night on their new bikes. They both mastered the gears instantly and Harry was whizzing round. I struggled to keep up with him on my tired legs. Hubbie reckoned he was going at 15mph!!!!! Harry cycled 4 laps that are about 2 mile each, plus lots of messing around in the slaloms in the pit lane. He has sooo much energy and just keeps going. Amazing! . Josh did 3 laps, and is much happier on his new bike with his long legs.
Right just kids swimming to go, dinner to make. Homework is done but reading to do yet. Huge pile of ironing to do as well. No rest for the wicked hey!!!
MM - yes if happened to someone else I'd probably be laughing too, apparently he thought I was having an errotic dream?! There's an interesting excuse! Have you adjusted the back of Josh's seat? I only found I could do it be accident when changing the covers, we've got two, one has wheels around the shoulder area and one has sliding clip type things. There also there for the head.
Caro - Looks like it's a bit more than obscure stuff unfortunately:
The Junior Maxi is fairly easy to use and offers acceptable front crash protection, but as the seat's protection is so poor in side crashes it has been given the Which? Don't Buy rating.
The Junior Maxi scores three stars for front-crash protection, but in a side crash, with the back fitted, we gave it just two stars as we found it exposed the child to a risk of serious injury. It was even worse with the back removed, offering virtually no side-impact protection at all. The side-impact protection is so poor overall, we recommend you don't buy this seat.
Using the Graco Junior Maxi is very straightforward, and clear instructions and labels warning of potential misuse mean there is little danger of installing it incorrectly. It's easy to adjust as your child grows - it uses the adult seatbelt to secure the child, so there is no difficulty in buckling up and making adjustments.
The seat offers good leg support, and the padding is comfortable, while the child's view out of the car is clear.
The junior Maxi offers plenty of space for the child, but it also takes up a lot of space in the car compared to some seats. It is very light - handy if you need to move it from one car to another - and the finish quality is excellent.
The cover is very easy to remove for cleaning and to refit.
With a total test score limited to just 20% by the poor side impact protection, we recommend you don't buy this seat.
If you already own one of these seats, think about buying a better seat, but don't stop using it until you've bought a new one - after all, any seat is better than no seat at all.
This result is from our 2012 tests.
Pros: Light and easy to use, easy to clean
Cons: Side crash protection is so poor we recommend you don't buy this seat Graco Junior Maxi
It's a shame as I'd been looking at getting one for my car. Just found some Rodis going cheap on ebay though.
Has to be said, my £1 Which? trial membership is being very well used! Breadmaker, tumble dryer, car seats... All in a week, I'm just a geek really
