    Morning all
    Crafty hope you got some sleep.
    I had about 4 hours I think - haven't woken up like that for months. Still I got my OU assignment checked and sent.

    Morning greenbee - how are you feeling these days?
    Still waiting for summer up here, but I don't envy any of you those muggy nights.

    Morning all :wave:

    Boys decluttered to school after spending half hour looking for DS2's glasses. So he'll have to keep looking when he gets home. :mad:

    Hubby due to get his bloods done at 10 so i'll get all the town stuff done then. Need to pack up the bedroom today as well as finding part of the bunk beds.

    Goodintentions, I'm sorry to hear about your uncle and congrats to your DD.
    Pigpen any chance OH would do the inhaler for the LO.. could a flying fluffy mule help.

    Thanks for the thread, lists and support. I am going to try and not read the thread so much this week. I want to complete the list Pigpen gives us and finish my own so I have a less stressful week next week, only 12 days until I get married! I normally start the week off well and then tail off towards the end so I may need lots off mules throwing at me by then. I have today and tomorrow off so am going to try and get ahead, or at least get on top of my own list. Going into work later anyway but only to make my life a bit easier as I only have one day there before I finish for my holidays.

    Hi guys. I haven't been around for the last couple of weeks and was lurking before that. Now though I'm on holiday until LO arrives by C-Section on 8th July. My house is a tip and I've 5 gazillion loads of washing to wash, dry, iron and put away; as well as ceilings, walls and skirting boards that could at least do with dusting and preferably washing with warm soapy water. I'm definitely in nesting mode.

    SPD & sciatica are bad; have taken 2 cocodamol at 6 so figure the next two will be at noon, and I'm going to set my timer and do 15 minutes at a time until living room is done.

    wash, dry and put away winter duvet
    wash, dry and put away towels
    sort out craft things for friend to take away on Wednesday (these have been gathering dust for nearly two years - being realistic I''m not going to get round to using them for a while yet).
    sort out a bag full of books to take to charity shop (I tend to read them then put them in attic. Now I'm reading them to put in bag for charity shop so my attic bedrooms are becoming less cluttered and I'm only allowed to buy one new book each week - and only after a bagful has gone out)
    sort out bag of clothes for charity shop - again I have far too many; I have to be realistic and accept that I'll never wear those 8-12 clothes again so they may as well go and benefit others!

    Right, I think that's my day planned. make living room presentable, washing, some ironing and sorting. I'll be back with an update!

    Morning greenbee - how are you feeling these days?

    Fat, lethargic, unfit... That bed rest did me no favours at all! Hope you aren't too shattered by lack of sleep. Try to take it easy today.

    DW won't co-operate despite threats of violence... So need to call the repair guy. Cheaper than a new one, and it isn't that old :(

    Window guy has arrived earlier than anticipated. Doesn't seem to see the need to take down curtains and blinds... Not so sure myself, seeing as they're being sanded and filled before painting (outside only).
  • i'm in - but without the music! - DD1 (ME sufferer would kill me if I did that!)

    How did you get on?
    I got a bit distracted de-cluttering a hotspot so still have loads to do.
    I'm an ME sufferer too but health is LOADS better at the moment :)
    I was stuck in bed 22 hours a day for about six months last year looking at my house as it got worse and worse...
    which is why I'm determined to get it clean and organised now I have more energy!
    Hope your daughter is as well as possible, tell her it DOES get better eventually :j

    Piggers is there any point in tell-in the mw how you feel

    You mean the ones I don't see? :p From past experience, they do nothing anyway.

    It is too hot already here... and Squeak terrorising the house!

    I woke up to OH on FB to a certain female.. the meltdown is heading this way super fast... he hasn't seen me throw a major wobbly I don't think... I very rarely do it as it makes me feel really ill for about 3 days.. but once in a while doesn't hurt too much.

    DD3 has her last sports day today and DD4 has hers, Tiddles is Wednesday and miraculously KH can find time to go to hers... favouritism or what?

    Squeak is hugging my stinky slippers.... she is quite odd!

    Number 1 job for today.. find a length of voile or net in my stash which can be used as a fly screen on the back door... there are some right evil flying turds thinking they can come in.. *shudder* Though watching Squeak try to follow them with her eyes is quite amusing!
