    And had a very odd dream where it was raining lots outside, and there was a chicken in my living room and I accidentally went to work with no shoes on. Dreams are weird :cool:

    I had a dream that my SIL went to prison but I don't know what she did. She's very quiet and not the sort of person who would end up in prison, so I don't know what that was all about.

    I've hung washing out at 6.30 am before. I just pop out in my jarmies and hang it out :o

    Busy day today so will be out most of the day. Got loads of work to do including a call that is miles away. Getting that done today as the weather forecast said it might snow by Thursday.

    Have a good day all xx
    Here I go again on my own....
  • Ah see I don't have an out to hang the washing in. I just pop it on the airer by the window. We do have a balcony, but I only put washing there when I am home, so I can bring it in if it gets windy.

    Morning!

    Why is it some mornings, even though you've gotten up at exactly the same time and done exactly the same things, are so completely rushed and late-feeling? :p Today was one of those!

    GISI, hope Henry's jabs go okay.

    Ladybird, you're far too productive in the mornings. Also, brave - I'm too chicken to hang washing out when I'm not home as if I do, it always rains :p.

    Any sling experts have tips for getting a mischievous baby boy to keep his hat on while on your back? Cheeky monkey likes to take it off and then has to go the whole walk with a bare head :o. I need to find one with a strap or something...and mittens...

    morning everyone :wave:

    I'm expecting everyone else to have left for the conference by now. I don't need to leave until the lst minute as I might be very close by ;)

    Then the rest of the week is back to being pretty busy again - so much seems to happen before christmas! Need to get organised (and tidied).

    Now - off to get ready.

    wi3adora, sorry I didn't reply last night, the forum crashed just as I saw your message.

    Thanks for asking, we are ok I think, tho I quite frequently feel at the moment that I am not coping with being a parent exactly as I want to be! (I have some solutions to try out though, so that feels good)

    Sorry work is so draining at the moment. I hope you are able to get all the rest you need. xx

    EA I hope your appointment goes ok, and that you get the clarity you need about why it's happening!

    weezl - I know that feeling. My friend suggested that because I was worried about being a good parent and if I wsa trying hard at being a good parent then I probabaly was a good parent ;)

    she also reminded me that we aren't superwomen (who knew huh?) and have to prioritise sometimes. And that occassionally we had to put ourselves on the priority list :D

    It sounds like you are pretty sorted and have a strategy in place though - so just ignore me!

    weezl, we have 1 of those but it's so big, it slips over his eyes! May need to find a smaller one until his head grows. :p Ta...

    Also, hugs that you're feeling a bit meh. Sorry I haven't been around for chats lately - give us the latest on F&K!
