Pip, message on its way, thanks. I also discovered we have a couple of mutual friends....  Small world!

Pip, I'd love the exercises please, will have another c section with this one and as this will be my last I have no excuses but to get fit afterwards!

Looks as though some of you are now on Easter break, some lovely photos on FB of your days out/holidays.

Welcome SOS, well done on getting out there so soon but be careful. Some of the mums on here have had some bad experiences with doing too much too soon. Congratulations on Oliver. 

Lol EF!  I'm eating way too much cake and sweets at the moment. Mr TT has found all 3 secret stashes of Cadbury's minieggs for the boys for Easter and demolished them already! Need a better hiding place. 

Some of you have seen on fb that the house build is finally out of the ground, all framing done to first floor!

Well done to everyone who raced at the weekend. Awesome results from Camlo, Chynah and Yve.

Boo to not beating your pb Caro. Have fun with Minks tomorrow. I love that some of us meet up sometime. 

Must be the night for nights out, Mr TT and I are out later too.

Wow, MM that's some amazing swimming from the little one, well done S!  There are no indoor pools here so we tend not to swim at all through the winter, have just started getting out again for the season this last couple of weeks.  Max was on a great trajectory in the autumn but has stopped dead and maybe even gone back a little with his swimming.  Should be able to get out now every week which is good.

Have put our flights on hold, flying back on April 29 and staying for 3 weeks.  Need to go through our itinerary to make sure we can do all we want to in that time before confirming them.  Getting quite excited about going back though.  Looking at houses to rent in the Swindon area.  There are some at the Cotswold Water Park that MM I'm sure you know.  Trying to work out what will be OK from all the way over here is not easy though.  Especially as 2 places that look very similar to me are quoted at 3,300 for the 3 weeks or 1,200 for the same time!!  Why?  Unfortunately there are no guest reviews yet for the cheaper one so I can't see what's wrong with it

An hour to an hour and a half away sounds perfect to me, just close enough that you can call on them if need be but as you say not so close that it gets too easy!

Cross post TB, you do get used to not having family around.  Are yours nearby where you are now?  We do feel a bit 'lonely' if you know what I mean.  We have good friends here now and one English couple we have got very close to would always take the boys for us in an emergency (she has already put her work on alert for our due date!) but it's not the same as dropping them off with family for a night away for work or just pleasure.  If you can't do that now then you'll not notice the difference but if you are close then that'll hurt.

Skype is excellent.  We make a point of speaking to both Grannies once a week so they are not complete strangers at least.

Nasty, hope the smog settles/blows through/whatever it is going to do soon.  That's pretty unusual isn't it?

CM - really??  Work can't resend a copy of your payslip?  That's just stupid.  We would always just reprint one if any of our staff requested a copy.  Hope the March one arrives tomorrow.

It is a little sad about the families and Os (and Max for that matter, especially as he is so interactive now).  We are not really close with either set of families and I am sometimes actually a little relieved that we are not geographically closer as my family have a subtle way of sucking the confidence out of you if you let them.  They make little comments that feel too petty to pick them up on but they are just little confidence-eating digs.  I don't think they mean to do it but it really sucked the confidence out of me.

Just discovered that one of the boys' favourite daycare teachers (she currently takes the class that Os is in and Max is also very fond of her and she babysits for us too) is moving back to Seattle in May to be closer to her family.  I completely understand why she is going but am gutted.  Will definitely need to find another sitter.....

House build is stalled while the builders wait for inspections from the council and then bring in earth to raise the level of the floor.  We have so much stuff to choose for the house, eek!

Yes, very quiet today.  What is the smog all about TB?  Glad you enjoyed your run despite being on the treadmill.

Planning to book flights later on today, not looking forward to all of the hassle but am looking forward to seeing the families again, it's been about 18 months already.  It will be their first experience of Oscar!
