How do you get going again after pregnancy?
JT - it's Ace - Feet in Motion on Sanatorium Road in Cardiff. They are fab people in there
right - have done at least 2 hours work this afternoon. must be time for a walk now
haha JT - i'm sure it's not that simple tho, is it?! as always, it's finding the time!
did my walk - about 5 miles or so. was VERY bracing but i got warm. calf feels ok, but shin pulling. guess that may be to do with new orthotics. she did say it would all feel a bit odd and may ache.
i am doing a bit more work again now. E has managed to persuade me not to put her into nursery tomorrow morning, so i have to try and do a conference call with about 8 people tomorrow morning which is scheduled to run for 90 mins - with her at home! i know it's not sensible (or even allowed) but she begged me not to put her into nursery and i am a soft touch. she goes to school in the afternoon which is just as well because i have a 2 hour call with India between 1 and 3 as well... i have no idea how i am going to keep her quiet for 90 mins. i am running the call so it's not even like i can go on mute and just listen in!
Along with 40,000 posts Camlo I just noticed!!! Yay to the cooker though, makes life SO much easier.
And no CM, never that simple! I've been meaning to try ACE for literally years! Should have gone in my days before children! Hope you get the logistics sorted for tomorrow, agree with Camlo, a film would be the best option here, although for obvious reasons I've never attempted to work from home with children! An interesting concept!
camlo - i couldn't be bothered to cook from scratch at 6pm for the kids! i have a freezer full of previously cooked meals. i ALWAYS cook in bulk; even if it's just a pasta sauce. i am soooo lazy... kids still happy to eat meals i have frozen. in fact, they usually refuse to eat it when i cook it fresh; but once it's frozen and nuked in the microwave, they scoff the lot!
E doesn't really watch telly. she doesn't really DO anything. other than swan around, singing, banging on a drum / blowing a trumpet, dancing, and pretending to be a princess / fairy / beautician. so i have NO idea how i will fare tomorrow. i absolutely cannot let on that she's at home, though. suspect that is a disciplinary offence. i suppose i could lie and say she's ill if it comes up...
and yes - eek to £80. however, i sold E's cot and mattress / bedding in the last 2 weeks so have justified it that way. also reduced my childcare vouchers to just £10 a month from £100 as i don't use any at the moment (aside from the odd friday morning - but not this week, obviously!), so i have a little more cash. and as from next month am upping my days to 4 a week, so i will be flush. hahahaha. i'm sure i won't be as i will probably come up with a new hairbrained savings scheme. but actually i desperately need to spend some money on the house, so it will be syphoned off into that. but for once i decided to prioritise getting my legs fixed so i can exercise. my 90 minute walk was okay, but as well all know, walking AIN'T running!
Definitely rather you than me then tomorrow CM!!!
Yay to walk though, sensible advice/sympathy from orthotic lady; but agree that walking is definitely NOT running!!
Missed Isabelle's birthday - whoops - Happy Birthday there too then
Glad antib's seem to be working JT. I merely have a cold, whereas my husband who we collected from the airport this evening has a full-blown man flu!!! And oh boy do we have to suffer it.
I guess I spend too much time on my own but why are men so NOISY when ill - dramatic sneezing and coughing etc (sorry RB!).
LOL at One Erection Camlo
Marmite and cottage cheese lost me too - big time!!
Subjected hubby to vegetarian patties tonight and they were apparently acceptable!
we have a mix of cooked-from-scratch and pre-mades from the freezer - sauces and stuff like spag bol are regulars in the freezer.
That is so true CC! Hubby is a fright! Drives me potty with pathetic 'eugh' coughs that never do anything more. he once had a genuinely horrid cough that caused him to throw up, but where as most normal people would go to the loo he used to throw up in his jumper! Ted was only 5 months at the time and in the full throes of reflux so it was quite a delight. Oh, and it lasted 3 months!
Camnlo - that made me laugh too
CC - I did laugh when you said you'd looked back at the old posts, I really must do that. I seem to remember thinking I had no time to do anything when I started this forum. Oh those were the days....
Fletcher passed away last night - all the surgeries and trauma were just too much for the wee guy. I am heartbroken for my friends and can't imagine how they must be feeling.
Give all your babies extra hugs tonight - even the missbehaving ones!
Oh how very sad Hoggle. My heart goes out to them. Also very close with Harry contracting Septicaemia at one week old. Awful times for them.
Fab news EF. Hope you can enjoy your pregnancy now. Not that I ever enjoyed being pregnant ever!!
I was feeding twins TT. Yes I did look rather ridiculous!
Busy day today with red nose at school, sophie's dance, then swimming, then lunch at friend's. Then Grandad turning up to pick kids up from school, take S to docs and get results of my x-ray on my foot. Then taking Grandad to pizza express for tea as it's his birthday. Luckily a rest day for me but not sure will feel like one tbh!!
I am so sorry to hear the news, Hoggle.
Happy birthday grandad, MM. Looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow
Just preparing for my conf call at 9.30. Dreading it. E is talking a very good 'being quiet' and practicising dramatic whispering. however, i have explained that, even if she communicates in a whisper, i won't be able to talk back. have laid out loads of activities all over the place, but she is such a butterfly that she will just float around and not knuckle down to anything! I could give J an ipad and he would play that for 90 minutes... but not madam. oh no.
