How do you get going again after pregnancy?
I know RB, which is why I made myself pause to take in the views. I've only really been up there in winter, so was great to see it all without snow and ice. Quite a barren landscape in some ways but very very beautiful.
As I reach this evening my quads ache, my upper arms ache, my core aches and my calves ache - so I think I can say I gave myself a full-body workout yesterday!
Caro - don't think I can add to other ideas for five-year-old boy - I'd go for a water pistol if it was me, parents will loath, kids will love. Mine STILL love bubbles too. And agree that must be weird re your sister vs new man vs ex-husband!!
VIXO: we got something very similar to this for putting up with our tent, I thought it would even work well with a people carrier over the side doors!! http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/hi-gear-zenobia-porch-p148804
Thanks Vixo - we're going after LB's term ends (before other schools break up) so I hope it won't be TOO bad. That's a lot of useful tips! I'm slightly dreading it, but LB is counting the days. He's been wanting to go for about two years and his best friend has just been, so I'll just have to bite the bullet.
Or do what we did and go to legoland at Easter. No queues at all. Empty park. Freeeeeeeeezing. But was fab fun. Older kids def helps. Much more preferable with 6+4 yr old than with 4+1 yr old
it will be hideous RB. We went on 9 July for birthday when he was 4. It was mobbed and it was a school day
right I am going to try an iPad post with autocorrect intact
I am sick and tired of the iPad autocorrections she at I type son am just going for it and seeing what happens. I think tthinking is that when you correct stuff that you see you have typed wrong it actuallam ales it worse. Ipif you leave it and don't edit it at all by doing backspace acourtrooms to edit out typos it probably isn't as bad. Am now going to post this before I read it to stop myself from trying to edit it
A well you see that was nowhere near as bad as I thought. Which proves my point that it is the backspace and edit think that you do when you see ou have made. A top that makes it worse. If you just type without looking t what you have typed it isn't really that bad (again - don't without checking my typing and here goes ... pOST!)
We really like it there too. Know what you mean about lack of lego too Vixo. Definitely take own food, there's quite a good deal (kids eat free?) at close I think in the main restaurant by the entrance but food is only ok. And we find turning towards Bracknell t the close really helps with the congestion issues as well as heading to back off carpark if poss to curb lots of queuing.
I have the very same problem CM. lwhat whaif appeyou if ou keep tryi g to eit. That should say 'look what happens if you try to edit'!
Well surgery booked for 31st of July. Totally freaked out by it and of course the logistics of recovering with a 2 year old but as my sister told me today - trying to approach it with a positive mind frame rather and nothing will be as bad as I think!
Amazing race CC, loved the finish line! I too have a filling issue, mine was replaced about three weeks ago, she has already ground it down a bit to see if that helped but I'm still getting some pain when I chew and a bit of heat sensitivity too, hope your dentist can sort xx
my kids have realised we live close to Legoland as we drive past the signs when we set out to dads. Think I will save it for an inset day or Easter!
Read back over your race report CC - sounds awesome!
I believe LEGOLAND on the continent is much more lego-tastic from what I hear (Denmark especially!). I'd definitely go like when CM (and I think MM) did - ie out of season and chilly, but so far we've managed to avoid and now we live to far away! I'd happily take them to one of the European ones though I think if we were in such an area.
Hoggle, think you just have to 'go with the flow', stressing about it won't help you at all and the logistics will ultimately work themselves out, no matter how chaotic it may seem. It's just important to get you sorted for now (())
CM - my phone is like that, ridiculous and drives me nuts but agree with your theory about correction.
oh hoggle - (()). you will manage it. that's very quick for surgery too. you'd be waiting months in the UK
I am a legoland expert... we go at least once a week, but i go in the week before preschool starts or after school. leila loves it and I don't mind it either unless its busy. places to picnic are the grassy areas in mini land or find yourself a bench in one of the restaurants. if you buy a coffee they generally don't seem to mind packed lunch. Don't miss the pirate show, maybe you could time lunch around that and have lunch whilst waiting for it to start?
Cc - brilliant race report!
Jt - hope all ok with the bleeding. I had bleeding for 1st Few weeks with Evie. I never found out why.
Cm - hope you get everything sorted with cough/bleeding too. Take it easy on your training.
hoggle - eek to back op but hopefully it will get it sorted.
auto correct is awful on rw... It is trying to turn correct words into goobledegook and doesn't try to correct typos. Annoying!
Feeling a bit flat here. Not sure why but got a really itchy feet feeling and a longing to go away again. Not that it will happen as leila starts school, hubby's job, my uni starting etc etc. not to mention money. I just feel very hemmed in. I'm sure it will pass and I am just being a spoilt drama queen.
Just seen ef on fb too
Going out for a 6 mile run when hubby gets home shortly... hopefully that ( and the rain) will clear some cobwebs.
Vixo camping sounds fab. How did you get on with the baby? did the light in the morning mean early waking? Tempted to book camping but don't fancy my day starting at 5!!
Hopefully so Anj! Lots of changes going on buy the sounds of things so maybe that's it too?
hoggle - it will be fine. Xxx
cc - sounds a gret race if not very hard work!
ok, one for you champion cake makers. Want to make si spider cake for Teds birthdayObviously fairly easy (in principle!!!) but, I don't have a dome cake tin. Can you get away with a pudding basin or will it go soggy? Just trying to save a few pennies!
