I couldn't come up with a witty title for this thread
I didn't want to get out of bed this morning. It's hard to get out of bed when it's still dark and everyone else is snooring. At least it's not cold anymore, so that makes it a tiny bit easier.
Today is my last day of work with the boss as they're going away for 2 weeks Nah should be fine...
We don't have any plans this weekend. Oh except a BBQ with some friends on Sunday. Anyone doing anything exciting? I've got a heap of study to catch up with.
Anyway I better go get Katie out for her early morning feed...

Why is it that when you have a big day ahead, you get the least sleep (due to poor DS3 up and down all night with reflux - ended up sleeping in the stroller on an upright angle next to my bed).
Off to Sydney to a friend's housewarming party at a retirement village.
DS2 is still asleep in our bed.
DH was working till 11 last night, then up at 4 to do a talk this morning!
So that's great, we're both tired and have a big day.

I been up since 4am too!! Everyone else in the house is still asleep, but not me. Woke up and just can't go back to sleep!!

Morning early risers
That's Murphy's Law for yah - if I go to bed late coz of work I am guaranteed that DS will wake 30mins after my head hits the pillow Or if we have plans for the day he'll wake up extra early and throw his day sleep routine out the window
Going swimming today, and nothing else. Saturday afternoon is my favourite part of the week - DH is home, slept and ready for DS after 2 night shifts. I get a relaxing Saturday afternoon and don't need to do the night routine till Monday night
Have to rescue cat from DS

It is going to be 27 here today in SA so we will probably go to the Farmers Markets this morning, feed the local Kangaroos and emus and enjoy the sunshine.
I had a shocker of a night with Will, in between feeds and resettling, I have no idea how many times I was up, maybe 6? We are off to Torrens House in Adelaide next Tuesday for 3 nights/4 days to try and sort him out.
That's Murphy's Law for yah - if I go to bed late coz of work I am guaranteed that DS will wake 30mins after my head hits the pillow
That is so true! It is like they know you have just gone to bed.

I'm just trying to stop procrastinating as I've booked the kids into the gym creche to force myself to go this morning. So not in the mood. Have promised the kids to take them to the park afterwards, lots of stuff to pack up. Argh! And DS woke up four times last night!
DH is on call/working all weekend, has a case at 9:30am to do, will probably be there most of the day.

I've been up and down since 2:30am and DH did most of the legwork so I let him sleep in. Oh bugger we're out of bread and I forgot to bake another loaf last night. Ooops. Cereal for the girls this morning (if they don't both gag on their rice milk) unless DH wants to run over the road to get a loaf from the bakery.
LOL speak of th devils.... they're stealing his weetbix because they're both starving He's gonna run over the road after he finishes eating.
Today I am cleaning out the fridge-freezer. And bringing in the ****ing dining table that's been in the garage SINCE WE MOVED IN LAST YEAR!! Will be rearranging the dining area too as it won't relaly fit. And working out if I can afford to buy a couple of decent dining chairs from Ikea (going on their website in a mo')
Oh and 50 billion loads of washing cuz all I washed yesterday was nappies
Poor DH, he might get a spoonful of his own weetbix eventually!!
Posted 22 September 2007 - 09:11 AM
Vanessa- I am in Berri and I think it is 25 tomorrow, just perfect.
I have lots of washing to do today as well. Bugger!
We have also decided that we might go to the library and borrow a few books for Miss Ava.
Posted 22 September 2007 - 11:25 AM
lol at your boobs mumz
I have just put a massive load of nappies in the machine
Posted 22 September 2007 - 11:27 AM
School holidays have started and DS has said "Im bored" so ive written ( typed actually) him a huge list on what he needs to do around the property for the next two weeks. I wonder how many weeds you can pick out with a fork?? dinner fork that is not pitch!
DD13 is at her Karate Competition today.. im waiting for those bruises to appear when she gets home.
DD16 is off to Air Force Cadet at 1300hrs for her week camp then home one day then off to the AIR FORCE Cadets band camp. her and DD13 are BOTH away at the same time.. and i pity all her Officers becuase they are BOTH hormonal next week so will enjoy that HOLIDAY whilst we can!
Hubby is on nightshift til Thursday next week then he has five days off.. so that will be good I get to talk to him and not get interrupted unless DD2 doesnt want to share again.. DS17 months still cant talk yet so he hasnt learn to interrupt or take the spotlight!
Me im just playing taxi and working...
Oh and the horse ate my daffodils this morning so im now waiting for the bull to break down the fence.. ..seems to go in that direction anyways..
too cold in our pool... mumzie even a toe in our pool water would make your boobs head north!! Theres no hope for me Ive lost mine somewhere along the way!!!
Posted 22 September 2007 - 11:38 AM
LOL at the boobs. Even after my milk came in after both girls were born and my lack of breastfeeding fu, my boobs still didn't point any direction but down! (H cups will do that to ya) Would have been much easier to get a baby on a boob if engorgement DID make them point upwards though.
DH is a daaaarling. He pulled the nappies off the shaded line and put them on the clothes airers to get sun while I was doing the shopping. He also put DD2 down for a nap I dunno if he managed to get the first load out of the machine yet will know in a second. Nope, but that's ok. He's entertaining DD1 who helped me unpack the shopping. She's in her best mood while helping mummy and will prolly come outside in just a nappy to help me hang the washing (DH took her out there in her pjs ) and help me put the second load int he machine. I love that she loves to help. Even DD2 was helping by handing me clothes to put in the machine. Toddlers are fantastic no matter what anyone says
OK back to my chores. Gotta make some mayo today too (since we can't have store bought mayo) so I can do up a coleslaw for our BBQ this evening (LOVE SUMMER!!!!) Contemplating doing a potato salad as well but it seems like too much work
Posted 22 September 2007 - 12:10 PM
ohhhh now I have a craving for coleslaw, and being PG it would have to be freshly made...
Posted 22 September 2007 - 12:20 PM
Back again, been for our swim - was a catch up lesson and another EBer was there with her 2 for the first lesson. Bloody cold when we got out - your right mumzie there is a storm coming from somewhere. I Friday or Sunday night storms - we used to sit out the front of the house with our wine and beer watching it go by. Dog's hate it though, and normally put a couple of holes in the fly screen trying to get inside.
Too tired to read the boob story , waiting for my hot lunch to come out of the oven - sweet chilli sauce with sour cream on seasoned wedges with sweet chilli chicken tenderloins mmmmmmmm

Silne: Jai is inlove with my new washine machine to the point I have to make sure it is turned off at the wall.... He is driving me mental. He always helps put the clothes in and out. At both my mum's and the IL's place they have to watch him otherwise he will put stuff in or out of thier machines. He once put a cheisal(sp) in mum's and dad didn't check before putting a load on, so clunk, clunk, clunk and he wondered what the noise was. He didn't stop the machine or drain it and check. When he got the washing out he saw what it was and it dented mum's machine LOL. Since then they always check the machine if Jai has visited. He also pulled my MIL washing out for her one day it was washed and ready to be hung out, she thought it was funny. He walks around telling people all about the washing and if it is wet or dry. BTW we have front loaders now which is a problem.
Mumzie: It is nice whne they sleep through but the full boobs in the morning are full on, I used express a bit and freeze it so when they start solids I use it then.
Copperdogsmum: You rlunch sounds yummmy....mmmmm
I have done 2 loads of washing brought another one in.
cleaned the kitchen
cleaned the bathroom
vacummed and mopped
fed both kids who are now in bed yay
I also striped both our bed and Jai's.
So Iam pretty happy with that effort.
Posted 22 September 2007 - 01:17 PM
Paula: we have a top loader so it's not an issue here even though E can get into the garage
Alas we don't have a dryer and it's about to rain on my line full of washing!! and the nappies are on the clothes airers so I can't even just bring in the stuff we need. Oh well, scrounging for pjs for the girls again tonight. Fortunately the container with their winter clothes in it is under our bed The clouds do look amazing though.
DH is being a darling and getting the girls their lunch (actually he's asking if they want seconds at the moment LOL).
I have a rather strange mayo recipe in the fridge cooling and hopefully thickening.... if it doesn't work out it's only cost me a tin of condensed milk
I just hope it doesn't rain all afternoon though cuz it'll be hell trying to cook on the barbie with the girls being locked up inside out of the rain It's so cold today too!! I ran around this morning opening all the windows cuz it was nice and breezy warm, but in the last hour it's turned really cold so now I had better go around and close them all. Three hours is good enough for airing the house out anyway!
Posted 22 September 2007 - 01:25 PM
Its raining, and all my nappies on the line are wet.
Supposed to go to an outdoor birthday party tomorrow, should be interesting...
Posted 22 September 2007 - 02:10 PM
hey mumzie I just looked at your sig isn't Nathan a boy???
Posted 22 September 2007 - 02:12 PM
LOL mumzie. I remember back when DH used to play original sims. We used to mutter to each other in sims language
Well the rain missed our yard yay!! I just want it to go into the dams. My
Contemplating whether I can convince DH to go over the road and get me some hot chips Have a MAJOR craving. I know they're bad and fattening but the oven fries in the freezer don't taste the same Eh I should do the oven fries. I don't think I have enough change on me for deep fried yumminess.
Posted 22 September 2007 - 02:49 PM
check out this pic, Amaya on her birthday, just got it from my dad LOL, I had to get a pic of her birthday nappy, I know I posted a pic the other day but this is one from her party
Posted 22 September 2007 - 03:11 PM
ladyp I was also thinking isn't Nathan a boy. I love the picture it is so cute.
We went shopping this morning after I slept in till 9am and DH did breakfast. We brought a Wii at the shops, it is so much fun, I can see myself getting very fit doing the boxing.
Off to play more games on the Wii I think this could be my new addiction since I am finished buying nappies. (even though I did buy another yesterday )
Posted 22 September 2007 - 05:19 PM
Geez I haven't been able to chat much. Harvey is a little guzzler and I'm finding myself spending more time on the lounge now than I did when PG!!!
TJ just did the cutest thing, she got one of Harvey's nappies and tried to put it on her baby doll.
Stacey - There ya go.......Video games incorporating exercise!!!
LP - That nappy is divine!
All this talk about food is making me soooooooo hungry so i'm gonna go have a bickie
Posted 22 September 2007 - 09:33 PM
That was a good bit of rain hey. It poured down here.
I had a good sleep too this afternoon. I slept for about 3 hours but I really really needed it.
We took the boat out this morning and went for a nice picnic on an island. Not sure what it's called but it was really nice. White sand and we had the whole place to ourselves.
I just finished the GST. Better pay it now. Cuppa time first though....
Posted 22 September 2007 - 09:47 PM
Hi all....wow swimming....I have been sooooo cold today.
Just come back from the city, was MIL's birthday. Went out for dinner which is always interesting with kids.
Got a baby shower tomorrow morning. Looking forward to it, wish I could show off some MCN but better not. Might leave a couple of cute ones in the car just in case DS has a party tomorrow arvo so busy, busy, busy.
mumzie, at the boobs....I loved breastfeeding just for that reason, my boobs actually look like boobs!
Posted 22 September 2007 - 10:51 PM
It's sad no-one else is talking to us
Maybe we should just start our own thread to catch up
