    I'm first!
    Happy winter everybody.
    Yep Michelle, I think all the mums with lots of kids are too busy running around after their kids to stop in to the large families thread too often, lol.
    You'll manage without hubby for a bit. Like Vanita says, in some ways it's easier. I've been a single mum for up to a year a couple of times. Not with 4 kids though I must admit.
    Lindsay will be managing with 3 on his own for a couple of days or so when I have these babies, that will be a bit tough with Angus still being a little bloke.

    Yvette, Lindsay will be fine, you know he's a trooper!!! And if he needs a hand, you know my phone no!!!!!!

    Michelle, you wont know yourself, it'll be like a holiday!!!! Instead of having 5 kids ( one of them more demanding than the others) you'll only have 4 !!!!!

    LMAO Vanita, you're right, one less child and one less load of criticism, no one to say, anything about the dishes or the floors or the house not being clean enough. Not sure why I was worried.

    Im sure Lindsay will get by too Yvette, if he needs help there are loads of bb girls who will help.

    I went to the chinese medicine guy, he did acupuncture, he said he is working on my stress (Yay), and stomach probs, as well as this cold, I have tablets for the cold ATM and then some to get my whole digestive system working. My back feels great too ATM so things are lookiong good on that front.

    Cheers Michelle

    Well he is gone, arrived at 10.50am and had a 2hr wait for the ferry to the mainland. He was waffling away about hiring a jetski the other day while he was waiting for the ferry and trying to work out how he could keep his wallet from getting wet. Not sure if he ended up doing it or not though, he said he'd ring back later.

    I am waiting for Jess to wake up and we are going to the supermarket and I am going to buy pizzas for dinner tonight. I think we may go to my mum's for tea tomorrow night although then I won't get any scrapbooking done, which is what I would truly like to do.

    See what happens, and how crazy I am feeling tomorrow.

    Cheers Michelle

    Vanita, thanks, yeah Lindsay will be fine. He wouldn't dream of asking for help though, but it's nice to know there's someone to call if you really have to, thanks & likewise.

    Michelle, hope you enjoy your little 'break'. Glad you're feeling better atm. Criticism would drag you down when it's ongoing. We all need to approve of ourselves (a never ending project, lol) so that it shows to others & invites more respect. A bit deep and meaningful but you know what I mean. Looking after yourself emotionally sets a good example for your kids.

    We have family coming over tomorrow for Angus' birthday, need to vacuum a bit, need some groceries, need to overhaul our budget yet again, etc etc. I looked at my seemingly insurmountable list of things to do before the babies are born, and worked out that if I did an hour a day it would all get done, but I don't feel very confident. Maybe my high energy nesting will kick in soon, I can only hope.

    Hope you get some stuff done soon Yvette, but you must be tired so i can't blame you for taking things slowly, I mean I do and I'm not carrying twins. LOL

    Took Jordan to netball and MIL watched the 2 babies, Josh came with me. Have AUskick at 8.30am so that will be interesting, have to have everyone out by that time. I think we'll stay in the car and wait ill he's finished. I went to Mums this arvo, I was gonna go tongiht but it is just getting too cold to stay out late, esp dragging everyone by myself.

    Hopefully we are ready and out the door on time tomorrow.
    cheers Michelle
