how are we all today? we are all ok, tate seems to have come down with another cough/cold and a temp, typical as he's due back to nursery tomorrow after the xmas hols.
So anyone had any sales bargains, or are you all shopped out after xmas? we booked a holiday yesterday woohooo!!! fuerteventura for a week we go next month am v.v.v. excited will be boring you all with it now, as not been abroad for a while.
Ohhhhh so jealous Nicola - a bit of winter sun will be fab I would love a holiday this year but dont think we can afford it cant wait to hear all about it
Forgot to ask - how is your wedding plans coming along?
Mel - bless you - maybe you could move the light switch up?
Nicola, that's fab, how lovely to startt the new year with a holiday Never got the chance to ask, how was your christmas having all three boys together?
Mel, sounds like you're hardly getting any sleep at all at the moment, How is Harry donig overnight, does he sleep well?
We're having to wait in for the sky man to come this mroning as our sky is seriously playing up. Then we're gonig to visit friends this afetrnoon then finishing off with dinner at the inlaws!!
Oooh Nicola, ive been getting some bargains!! It's both Ethan and ambers birthdyas in march so i basically started palnning from boxing day!!! Have decided on the parties (i think) and have started buying their presents!! We're trynig not to get them lots of bits this year as to be honest they accumulate so much c**p during the year! But i'm gettnig things i know they'll like. I got amber some disney dressing up shoes in asda yesterday down from £6 to £1.50!!! Ethans got a load of mighty world sets (american figure sets) at a 1/4 of the retail price. Plus of course i've had some new tops mostly half price
weve got the winter lurgy here too, and jacks now got pink puffy eyes too, along with lola coughing till shes sick im about to put the black cross on the door... so far me and andrew just have cough sniffles bet it wont be long before were worse too.
oh nicola that sounds lovely, were thinking of doing a weekend at the coast but not deciding until lolas more settled, as tbh after last years holiday we arent keen on a repeat, but then people did say NEVER holiday with friends who dont have a baby and dont know what its like to be 28wks pg with spd!!!
mel im having trouble going to sleep at night even though lolly is up all the bloomin time, but on the otherhand any other time im stationary i cant keep awake, very frustrating.
jo we have an in the night garden go glo light jack loves it as he can get it from his cot and puts it back when hes done and no wires, when its charged up, just have to remember!!
i love those glo lights too, we have a thomas one here, both the boys love it i know some were on sale half price somewhere? argos maybe?
i am sitting here freezing to death, i've started my holiday packing believe it or not (i must sort out my passport next week!) not up to much at all today the boys are asleep tate seems a bit worse, took all the xmas decs down and now have housework and ironing to do but can't motivate myself at all today!
A bit of winter sunshine sounds fab, my sis was in fuerteventura in November and had a lovely time!!
We've had a pretty quiet day today, just been catching up an housework and getting ready for work tomorrow
We've all had yucky colds too, although thankfully we seem to be over the worst!! Phoned Cameron's childminder earlier to make sure she'd be able to take him tomorrow, had a sudden panic that i'd have to find alternative childcare!! Now his spots have all dried up though she's happy to have him, phew!!
Mel, wishing you a good night's sleep tonight xx
Mel - hope you get some sleep tonight, sounds like you and Laura are both having similar nights.. I'm working nights this week, so will be thinking of you while wandering about the hospital.
Nicola - very jealous of your sunny holiday, hope you have a lovely time though!! We've had a quiet day today, put up a few pictures and a mirror so the house feels more homely, and had a nap this afternoon as going to attempt to stay up late tonight (although flagging already!)..
Mel speaking of noisy toys, i may be wrong but i think it was you who recomended the bob the builder vtech phone? lovely toy loads to do, but noisiest thing in my house, after lola! Christ i want to kill the blooming thing! it allways appears as lolas settled, mean as i am ive put cheap batteries in it and its quitened it down a bit but still drives me nuts old btb yelling away when jacks presses the wrong button!
Hope you get some better nights soon mel if its any comfort last night was the 3rd time, not in a row might i add, lola slept after 1am before 9am! shes a tough cookie!
god id have killed her!!! jacks is funny about his muslins is he looses one in the night he goes crazy, he has to have three (didnt know he could count) and his taggie blanket, then theres the gloworm and sheep that have to be on a certain song, atleast i know whats bothering him when he wakes, sometimes!
