God, that sounds like a day in ****.Isn't it annoying when kids won't eat ? Mine is OK but he often has friends here who will refuse even things like roast chicken or sausages.We had a child stay once whose Dad provided us with a box of tinned spaghetti/beans type meals!
Twins...the only scarier words I know are 'triplets' and 'can you just step on the scales please?'

Melissa you must have a heart of gold to look after the terrible twosome while the parents were away. Hopefully your friends will return the favour in the near future & you & DH can escape - even hide at home with the curtains shut - for a weekend. Mud - I've pulled up my hall carpet as my 2 don't understand the meaning of 'wipe you feet before you come in'. They thought that was why I had a carpet in the hall.

You deserve a drink. I especially like BPB's theory. Think that means I don't drink very much at all.

Well I've stuck to my calories all day & have eaten millions - maybe my cals level (keep typing points) level is too high. Will need to monitor my weight loss for the next couple of weeks before I make any decisions regarding that.

I'm working in the main office in Glasgow until Thursday morning, so I'll chat in the evenings as I'm stuck in a workshop with the 'dynamic (not) Gerald' until then. Not even a computer to hide behind - how do I get roped into these things.

Morning!

Geneve - you made me blush! I am definitely not a saint - nowhere near it - I am fairly sure that given the same set of circumstances as I have got, that most people would consider fostering.

Go for it, Delaney, I think after your weekend you deserve some 'light refreshment'!!! I think those twins sound like little monsters and I doubt very much that I would cope as well as you - let alone better. Its been a long, long time since I brought up littlies - so I have got a lot of learning to do. Hints and tips will ALWAYS be welcome!!

That Dooley's sounds... interesting but very sticky!

Carol - you are on a quite high number of calories but you should still lose weight because of your BMR. If you find you don't lose then drop it by a hundred and see what happens. You are right though - when you are counting calories if you just keep your fat intake very low then you can eat a huge amount.

Ohhhhh.... creepy..... the daughter from **** (Vicki - aged 23) phoned up last night to tell me that she is coming home for a while - starting tomorrow! Our policy is strictly that this is her home so the door is always open - so we never asked any questions about why or for how long... last time she did this it took her nearly a week to explain, but curiosity is killing me already!

I hope Vicki's alright Sarah, it's probably boyfriend trouble.

Carol when "dynamic" Gerald is talking to you just think about the shops at lunchtime!! They'd just finished building that new shopping centre near the theatre when I left and I never got to go there, have you been? Don't envy that drive home in rush hour though!!

I weighed myself again this morning, I just can't help myself, anyway I'm up and down like a yo-yo this week. I am determined to be 16 stone something next week, sick of this 17 stone malarky!!

Has anyone heard from Veggie.... WHERE ARE YOU????

I just LOVE the idea of calling someone 'Dynamic Gerald'. (Makes me smile just thinking about it.) To me Gerald is one of those names I just CANNOT imagine calling a baby... like Archibald or Eric (sorry to any Geralds, Archibalds or Erics - or their wives/mothers). I usually do a visualisation thing when I am stuck with someone I don't like - I try and imagine them in bizarre nightwear - like Gerald might wear a 'Wee Willy Winkie' nighshirt and hat covered in pink bunnies.... daft, but it passes the time!

Melissa - you are probably right that Vicki's problem is boyfriend trouble... or work trouble.... or college trouble.... it usually all overlaps to a certain extent. I shall just let her take her time and listen to her if that's what she wants or leave her alone if she wants to be left alone. I learned this thing called 'empowering' on Saturday - it helps you to give a child or adult confidence in themselves which helps them to open up to you - basically you have to give them constant choices - in what they eat, where or when they sleep, how they interact - so they can take some control of their own lives. A side affect of empowering is that they are sort of FORCED to communicate with you - even if it is only by making a choice of the options you give them which opens the doors a little bit to them communicating on other levels. I might practice on Vicki!

Sarah, I have been a daughter from ****...I used to long to come home but it was so hard to say I was wrong. Some of us only learn from our mistakes.
Funny enough, there was a woman with a 4 week old baby at the gym today and his name was Archie!We fought like mad over the baby's name...DH wanted Cornelius (I kid you not) and I wanted Hamish, which I LOVE but he hated. I had to give up my name to save him from a life time of being called 'Corney'.
And speaking of babies....there he goes now.......

Geneve - I would imagine when you were going through your Daughter from **** phase that your Mum felt a bit like I did when Vicki was going through hers - I never wanted her to say she was wrong or apologise - or anything like that, I just wanted her to talk to me and to get back to how we were before the phase started.

She's long over the DfH stage now (she was 15-17 then and she is 23 now and is quite proud of her nickname) - but I suppose the one thing I have learned from all this fostering training is that there are lots of ways to communicate that don't actually involve words. Shame I didn't know that at the time, because I can look back and see the communication in her actions now and there are lots of things I would have done differently.

Like I said in my last post - this is her home (even though she has never actually lived here) and she knows that she could just turn up and would be welcomed with open arms and no questions. (But it doesn't stop me feeling curious though!!)

Have you got over your troubles with your Mum yet??

Poor Veggie, when does this course finish? Hang in there

Well I was doing terrific today and I know you can sense a but coming up....but tonight dinner went to pot!! I had to collect DH from work (only 5 mins away) and he suggested fish and chips when he got in the car, the kids went mad for it and I couldn't then just say - well actually I've got a sausage casserole in the oven, because I hadn't!! It was actually sitting ready to go in the oven but not actually there yet. So as I didn't want to be the big bad mum that I usually am I said ok - I only had a very small portion of chips but I reckon that's still about 900 calories!!! I feel guilty, full and sluggish I should have just said ok you and the girls have that and I'll have something else but I couldn't could I? because I have no willpower I am rubbish!

I am going to get on the rebounder tonight and burn these flippin' chips off. Sorry to rant but I didn't know anyone else who would understand. Thanks

Anyone else having trouble changing their avatars????

Some so-and-so has done a runner with my browse and upload option!

WHAT AM I GOING TO DO NOW FOR MINDLESS PLEASURE????????

Veggie - have you got long to go on your course?

Delaney - I can't say a WORD about chips after my gluttony last Saturday... I just hope that you don't feel as guilty as I did.

I'm off swimming now - its adults evening at a pool 10 miles away - apart from the swimming its really good entertainment because it is used as a sort of pick-up palace. You have got the lads wandering round sucking in their tummies and puffing up their muscles and the girls actually putting makeup on and doing there hair in the ladies, then they sort of parade gracefully around the edge of the pool and MIGHT dip a toe in and shudder at the water temperature. I LOVE it - it reminds me of those singles nights at some of the supermarkets down south!
