Head Full

Too much going on atm the blog. I know it would probably help to write things down but, hey, I'm shoving my head firmly in the sand and it's not coming out yet!

Had a bit of a painful tooth over the weekend, then on Monday it got bad enough for me to make an appointment at the dentist. Monday night it kept me awake all night and yesterday morning it was so bad I had to get Graham up to get Lucy to school. One trip to the dentist later and I now have one tooth less to clean. It's all swollen now though and I can't move my face to talk or smile properly. Hope it settles soon.

Lucy is still using the tiolet (YEAH!!!) although she had a little accident yesterday. She is still filled with excitement every time she goes bless her. She'll be full time at nursery after half term now. i will just have to get used to it.

Leila has started sleeping a bit better, only waking me once a night now! Wish Lucy would sleep in longer than 5am though.

Happy Day

Today we have had a big success. Lucy is at last using the tiolet and has not had an accident all day. Phew, more than 8 months trying but we got there in the end. Fingers crossed she really has cracked it this time.

Leila has become a proper entertainer. She loves to sing, her favourite song atm being Hey Jude! It goes something like;
Hey Jude!
mo mek me mad
na na sad song
mek me berrer

soooo funny and cute!

She also plays hide and seek with Lucy but instead of covering her eyes, she covers her mouth and counts. :)

I love them at this age :)

Busy week so I'm going to rush through it.
Lucy will be trying nursery full time again next week, they said she is using the tiolet at school!!! She's still not using it at home, she cries for hours to have a nappy on.

Gray went back to work, and then the job was closed down by health and safety.....arrrggghhhh! Now we are going to be broke for christmas....

.....or maybe not as I have stumbled on a gambling ploy, gave it a go yesterday and it only worked!! Problem is I haven't been approved by the site for withdrawels so what's the point in playing if I can't collect my winnings? Am trying to get it sorted.

Teh big kids dad keeps asking if Craige wants to go and stay with him in France for a month. He said no before but now he's thinking about it. I think it would do him good, but part of me doesn't want him to go.

Off to an exhibition at the NEC tomorrow, taking my mum too. Going to be a full day.

ok dinner to cook!

Should be at playgroup with Leila but she fell asleep, might have something to do with Lucy getting us up so early again. Lucy has gone to nursery though and Cas, is back at college. Now just have to get Gray back to work, maybe tomorrow? And sort out Craige.
Now, does anyone know where I put my winning lottery ticket, I need the money?

Busy Busy busy

Been a bit busy, mostly running around, sometimes I wonder wether it was a good idea learning to drive. Wish petrol wasn't so expensive.
AT loggerheads with Gray because it looks like he's landed another duff job. I have to pick up all the pieces financially and I just don't know how I'm going to cope, I haven't yet recovered from last time. And he doesn't seem to understand why I'm upset.

Lucy did a poo on the tiolet yesterday! Mum had treated us to lunch and a session at the Wacky Warehouse and I could see that Lucy wanted to 'go' so I rushed her to the tiolet and she 'performed' straight away. Then later on that evening we spent and hour trying to get her to go on the tiolet while she screamed and cried for a nappy. Ever felt like screaming?

Started getting some bits and pieces for Christmas in, might have to make them stretch as I can't see my getting any more money now for any more :(
