Really ought to blog, really ought to blog....

Too tired, too busy, not really much to tell..

Kids all doing fine. C. a total whirlwind - others have nicknamed him 'Chaos Caleb' and he really is. He drew in dry marker all over the lounge carpet the other day - any tips? I know I can't get it wet and the hairspray tip didn't work :-(

Car won't start atm. Need to get it looked at - could be just the starter motor or could be the engine has ceased from standing dormant for two years or so..! Getting a mechanic friend to take a look is the next move. Really wishing it was on the road on nights like tonight when I have to race to swimming in the wet, wind and cold and then can't find a seat to watch in when I get there - and no-one offers theirs of course despite my looking very pregnant by now! The kids need to sit after-all while they play on their little gameboys and PSPs. Sorry - it's just that the impoliteness of children who aren't taught to give up seats for old people, or pregnant/nursing women really narks me. I've even had to stand and breastfeed at points down there cause no-one has offered their precious seat - rrrr - rant over!

Other than that I'm keep well. Feeling very 30 weeks now - which by scan I am tommorrow (by dates I'm only 28wks - that's what my 'ticker' is sticking with for now, but I feel 30!) Baby is a real active wriggler.

Another great website I found - check it out if you hate setting spellings and would love someone to do the leg work for you! It's free too (although it is American so you have to bear that in mind) :-)

If you create yourself a 'school' name and then give each child an ID you can keep a progress report for everyone in the same place. Otherwise give each child a profile and you will get emails of their progress anywya. My kids are doing well with it and it's only about 5 minutes each day - suits us fine!

That's it - I'm done. When you crash on the sofa at 7pm and don't wake up til your hubby as put all the kids to bed, washed up and tidied up the remainder of the baby's toys - that's when you know you need to go to bed earlier than you have been.

When you wake up and your hubby's done all that, I'd say you know you're married to someone pretty special. :)
