Today has been glorious, blue skies and gorgeous sunshine all day. At times though, we had fairly strong gusts of wind, as you can see by The Boy Child's hair in this photo! I do love it when The Boy Child can be outside all the time.
My wee man has been struck down with the lurgy today. I found him covered in sick this morning, when I went to get him up at 8am, and he was sick fairly regularly for most of the day. By teatime, he seemed to be over the worst and managed a bowl of dry Shreddies, … Continue reading Poorly DS
Another 9th of the month has rolled around and my wee monkey is running me ragged! Cannot understand why some ladies deliberately make a "lifestyle choice" to have their babies in their late 30s/early 40s!! I am NOT a flag waver for late motherhood at all!

Linda the Librarian is very nice and is good … Continue reading Monthly Book Group
This week's challenge was to scrap outdoors; mine is more outside!
Did you remember to wear red today? I'm in my new 3/4 sleeve "strawberry" t-shirt and DS is in his England rugby shirt. (As I'm typing away, 2 RAF Merlin helicopters have just flown over our house.)The group on Facebook now stands at 74,102 and rising!
