Caro - I took Movicol after both births as the first time I got an anal fissure and could not have coped without it and the second time I think I got something very similar though never had it diagnosed. I think I took 2 a day but could have taken 3? So yes I would just up the dose - they worked well for me.
Boo to packed and cancelled trains and being shouted at at work
I had a lovely morning with the Job Centre Plus students who are doing an ESOL Employability type course (I'm covering for this week) - they bought me a hot chocolate at break time and all sounded very sad when I said tomorrow was my last day with them, and one student said he was always afraid to speak English (or not interested!) but now he wants to speak it all the time . Now if I could just have that in writing maybe the College would give me a permanent job...
That's good to know Vixo! Might try a pin...the toothpicks are wooden so snap or go soft quite easily! There is some on the inside of her tooth along the gumline though and I'm not sure I could reach it or at least do so without poking her gums! Am I right in thinking it doesn't come off once it's there unless you (or the dentist) scrapes it off? Brushing is just preventing it getting any worse I think?
Lol to the eyelashes Pip! I have an image of you with big long cartoon-like fluttery ones...
Just been offered some work for next week (just as it's the end of term and I was winding down before the summer school starts!) which is good but always such a logistical nightmare! How are we expected to get to work for 9am or soon after when school doesn't start till 8.45am? Are we not expected to take our children to school?! I don't understand why employers aren't more flexible in the mornings. Obviously in my line of work you can't have a class starting at 9.30 some days and 10am others but still....! Anyway I hope hubby can take the kids to school on Monday morning as I have no idea what the traffic will be like so want to leave earlier. Otherwise it's a question of asking the grandparents to drive over and take them to school... I wish it was more simple to work and be able to take your kids to school!
I've got a poorly Nicky here today - woke up with achey tummy, just had a piece of toast for breakfast, then has since been sick twice. He was actually sick while I was on the phone to my boss asking if I could do this cover work - had to say please can I call you back, my son's being sick! Think he's feeling better now as he's fast asleep on the sofa . Just hope he wakes up in the next 20 mins or so so I can go and get Sophie from school... My tummy's gurgling a bit but I often feel a bit dodgy after witnessing the kids being sick so fingers crossed I'm not getting it! Summer fair tomorrow...can't be ill...!
Ha ha Caro, I can imagine the PTA emails, much like my inbox right now! Roll on Saturday...and let's hope the vice-chair decides to stay!
Ew to the toe TT, hope it clears up.
Sorry been seriously skim-reading, still catching up from last weekend! First run in 2 weeks tomorrow, much in need of it. Been manic with working extra days (though more money!), Sophie's birthday and party and now PTA mania and summer fair preparation! I don't mind it as it will be a good event and I think we will raise a good amount of money, fingers crossed! Oh and hubby's birthday on Sat!
Definitely clean teeth before dentist! Grr to idiotic husbands too!
Speaking of teeth, Sophie seems to have got tartar between her bottom teeth which are adult ones but growing at a slight angle from each other so there's a sort of v-shaped gap between them. I feel like the worst parent! I think it's because she's had wobbly big teeth for months, and wobbly bottom incisor, so it's been hard to brush those teeth properly and I hadn't noticed anything building up. Think it's got to be a trip to the dentist but don't want to scare her . Does anyone have experience of dentists scraping children's teeth, or am I the only shoddy parent on here?! I hope they're gentle... I've had a go with dental floss and a toothpick, and got some off but some I can't reach.
Ha ha I love your conversation with M Caro! Gotta love the thought processes of 5/6 year olds.
That is fantastic news but I hope you are still feeling positive about the treatment and surgery - it is a lot to take in in such a short time. Do they offer counselling or anything when you have a mastectomy? How is hubby taking it all? I am so pleased for you that the scans were clear, you did not deserve to have that thrown at you as well.
Hubby just told me that Nicky said he (hubby) had a hole in his head tonight, when he bent down and Nicky saw the top of hubby's head (i.e. bald patch) . Earlier we popped into my work for a presentation thing, so I took the kids for the first time. Nicky asked if I worked in England (I'm not sure how far he thinks I drive to work exactly ) then I was explaining to Sophie that her friend (who is half Slovakian Roma) goes to school just up the road from where I work, and she asked if her school is in Slovakia .
School fair on Sat so the PTA is awash with manic stressed people who are threatening to quit left right and centre! Forecast looks ok fingers crossed...
