Re: Running a bit late this year!

I had a little spin out yesterday...I couldn't find a car park, the shops were teeming and full of Christmas stuff and THEN I realised that December is next week. We've not done a thing. Eek!

Re: Entering the next phase of parenting

Never say never. That's what I've come up with as a mum of a 17.5 year old who is now attending schoolies on the gold coast. :shock: I think you are approaching it from the right angle Feebes. The only way you will get to know this boy is to have him around/invite him places. At least then you can s...

Re: Psoriasis

Apparently I have seborrheic dermatitis...lots of flakes at times. It may not work but I'd be interested in what you're using if you could PM me.

Re: Scones

Yeah, go gently, knead as little as possible - if not at all.
I have a friend who just whips up a batch...no measuring and she melts the butter with the milk...no rubbing in! AND THEY ARE AWESOME!

Re: Love for a forumite

Hey BM! From your inbox on the right hand side of each message there is a box called 'mark'. Click each one that you want to delete. Then down the bottom of the list there is a pulldown box that has 'Mark/unmark as important'. When you look at other options there is 'Delete marked'. Select that and ...

Linen Tea Towels

Hey domestic and sewing goddesses I have accumulated quite a number of linen tea towels from my mum and MIL. I think they are lovely but what to do with them? Too good for the kitchen. :wink: I was thinking of sewing a few tote bags for the girls in my life...well it'll probably end up just being on...

Re: Vikings is back on!

We're all into it...well minus Sadie. Purchased Season 1 for DH as a Chrissy pressie on a whim...we loved it. Binge watched that and season 2 so now the waiting till next week thing kinda sucks AND it's on so late. Loving it though. Is it lame that I follow a lot of the people on the photo gram thing?

Re: Perfectionist Child

http://www.kellybear.com/TeacherArticles/TeacherTip53.html Yes to the copping it at home. I think they bottle it all up and then spew it all out on those that love them most. And yes, anxiety is a big part. I found though that things like the blue site kid stuff only make her feel worse as she think...

Re: Perfectionist Child

Sadie is like this - the perfectionist. If she can't do it first time then she "can't". I have thought that as she is surrounded by big people she does not see people struggle to learn a new task or to make mistakes. She does not really have the ability to laugh at oneself...is that a good thing? I ...

Re: How much does your partner help around the house?

I've approached it from a house sharing perspective...how long would DH last as a housemate? Not long. He (and the kids) live there and make a mess so he (they) contribute to the running of the house. I have eliminated the phrase "for me" from my language. No one hangs clothes for me. DH is a great ...

So glad someone asked DigDig! I think BiN gave a good hint...after she asked...I think it starts with S and rhymes with giggle.

Re: preparing school lunches

I loathe and detest school lunches. DH or I do them mornings. You know, there are children out there, yes and some as young as 5-6 that make their own lunches!?? I know, get out of town.

Re: Shopping

DH and I take turns ie: when he's home on shopping day he does it...he enjoys it, I tolerate it. Yes, we have a shopping day. Menus are planned (mostly by me but with some input from family) and shopped accordingly from the list. We have a white board magnet list thing on the fridge where you put it...
