oh hoggle - can see how sick of it you are... it doesn't matter how much 'worse' other people have it - if it's hard for you, it's hard for you. at least that's my take on it. hugs xx
i always get broody watching birth programmes. i'd love to give birth again. don't want another baby. but happy to do the pregnancy and labour bit. won't be happening obviously. should have started earlier!
been to GP this morning about the near constant exhaustion, headaches etc. she's not sure there's anything they can do. reckons some of it is tension. could well be. but tbh there's not much i can do about my lifestyle: i have to work full time. i am on my own with the kids when i have them, so i have to do everything as there is no-one else to pick up the slack. ah well. more bloods to check i'm not diabetic or menopausal. other bloods were all fine so am not anaemic or anything. just gotta live with it.
told my boss cos obvs was late in. he said 'perhaps you need a couple of days leave to go on a spa break or something'. OMG i can think of NOTHING worse than that. i'd rather have 2 days, take a tent and go yomping across the moors in the freezing cold and pouring rain lol
blimey JG - your mum sounds a little bit like she's taking after your granny being judgemental about life choices... hard for her with her brother tho. does he live close by?
i don't feel too bad about my kids' diet. E ate a stack of homemade pancakes this morning and i rationed the toppings. J ate a yoghurt followed by a peanut butter sandwich. his lunch is a tuna sandwich, veg sticks, fruit and a nutella dipping pot (ok that bit's not great but he shares it with his friends and it is THE focal part of lunch for him. he gets to eat about 3 sticks because he shares it with a group of 4 friends). so i am not going to beat myself up about the aldi lasagne (which to be fair i have never done before); or the tin of tomato soup (which he has about twice a month). i could be feeding them far worse!
neither of my kids eat cereal. i love it though. mainly eat sugar free muesli with something crunchy on top (which is a sugary granola usually - but only a handful). but i only have it once or twice a week: usually for tea.
i have heard of the candida thing. my mum was very into an alternative eating thing and candidiasis was a big thing that apparently most of us had, and she reckoned she was riddled. i have no idea really but i think it was bunkum.
Hugs Camlo xx. She isn't your responsibility. You don't HAVE to get involved. Look after yourself first and foremost.
i fear my kids get too much sugar. Ellen is a bit of a pancake fiend. And she does ladle on the sugar if I don't keep a beady eye. Jacobs bfast is a bagel with pnb and jam. All of that has sugar in it. Lunches aren't too bad and tea is generally fine. Except tonight where I had precisely 30 mins from picking them up from childminder to leaving home to go to rugby and both needed feeding. And I'd been out of the house since 7.30am. So it was ready meal lasagne and frozen veg for ellen. And tinned tomato soup and at his request cos he is an odd child a tin of mackerel for Jacob. Too much salt for both. Ho hum. At least I fed them
