whoop whoop CM! Does this mean that theyll have to wipe the water bill too? Sounds possible ????
amazing running Caro! a 10k pb, fantastic!
the potential Scottish meet up sounds great. Do we try and sort a get together with some of us this year? Would love to meet you guys!
cc - go with what you know is right. I'm glad you've managed to get hubby to listen. Slightly astonished he's only just starting to realise!
Lotte - hope up Helly was good. Great to Crystal were fab. Can't wait. Out of interest, do your kids have lessons or can they already ski?
mixed here, George got to have special boots as he probably won't walk without them *sigh*. It's bad hypermobility again (couldn't one of my kids had hubby's genes!). Work is well, work :-/. Inspection report due imminently and not good. Lots and lots and lots of crap to be sorted out... But is anyone surprised at that?!
Tatty - that's all sounding promising with the counsellor. always good yk have someone you're confident In. Hope it all works out. Sounds like you're suffering too. Hope you're ok. Xxx
cm - I have no words... One of Newport's finest you met up with theN? What an arrogant git.
PG - . I can so relate to what you're saying. Have you gone part time on your return? (Sorry can't remember ). I found the transition from full yo part time v v v hard as organising (let's face it) five days into 2.5 was challenging. It does get easier. But as for sick children. i dread it. Invariably hubby can do it, but I always make sure the boss knows (tellung her by the back door) so when I do need the time off she knows we're desparate. (2 x 0.5 days in six years!) It's so crap to be made to feel like that though. You don't choose for your kids to be ill!
New buggy turned up today . I won it from Quinny so now have my boot back. For anyone with a little one the Maxi Cosi/Quinny share group is well worth being on as I've had a car seat and buggy in the last six months! Shout if anyone wants details :
Blimey I think I get less grief from a class if 30 5/6 year olds CM!
Yep, we're in the delightful 2x full time childcare and 1x part time . Think my bill is 'only' £70 per day so at least I can still work.
Cc - thinking of you. Hope youre recovering from your efforts both mentally and physically.
No sigN of snow yet here, it was sleeting when I picked the boys up earlier.
Ok, am I bring unreasonable...? Rant Alert! On Friday Ted's best friend came to school unwell. Before Christmas his mother was spouting about how disgusting it is when people send their kids to school unwell and make everyone else ill. ( this being the woman who caused me to have a v v v unhappy time a few years ago). Now I have an ill child as she sent H in ill. So peeveD! No poing in saying anything to her as most of you have the measure of her from her action s in the past, but rah! Now I'm going to end up with everyone ill here by the looks of things. Thanks for that!
Ah that's lovely news Hoggle. Been keeping an eye out say congrats! How old are Luke and Faye now?
Know what you mean about savouring every moment Hoggle, they don't stay little for long! With Archie I was terrified about him being my last baby and didn't enjoy it as much as I should. This time I really dont want any more and it's put a completely different spin on it.
Yep, the C effect has been somewhat profound! What was the race she did that had loads of people pul,ed of the mountainside and few years ago (OMM?) she was most bemused when she found out how worried we'd benn .
Brookie - I've been just the same! Must be a baby age thing! (I think I is about the same age as George?) I'd been awol since about October too! And as for Facebook, reD a really interesting article recently which spoke about how social media often serves just to help people make their lives look better and give psop,e the edited version (not applying this to anyone here!) but I know do many people who do that...
spent the evening cutting out number jigsaws for tomorrow. Took longer to cut out than the lesson will take, most depressing!
Ooh Caro that sounds dreadful! I'm glad someone took your complaint seriously. Not that you should have had to write in the first place .
cc - thinking of you in all this crazy weather. You probably won't get this now, but good luck!
jg - glad new job went well. I'm definitely with CM, I love Thursdays and Fridays when I'm not battling to get everyone out by 7.30.
I have to admit to getting Garmin envy... I have a 305 which is starting to groan in its old age! It's my 40th in April, maybe!
George's birthday today. Can't believe he's a year old already. Where has that time gone?! Got a few families of friends coming over tomorrow for coffe, cake and (bacon) butties. I'm hoping for it to be civilised nut with 14 kids in the house I fear it may not!
