Why is it that some days it all seems too much? I feel on the verge of tears and have done all day. Eldest child seems to be on some kind of mission to send me crazy with her non stop chatter. Youngest child is poorly so requires cuddling all day. The house looks like a team of Tasmanian devils have been through it - which let's be honest isn't too far from the truth. My hips ache , I feel queasy and my eyelids are stubbornly refusing to stay open! On the plus side I got some gorgeous half price goodies in the Lush sale. Now if I could just get child number one to go to sleep I could enjoy them! Wish me luck!!! Ha ha ha!

I can't quite believe the speed at which we are racing towards 2011. It promises to be an exciting year filled with lots of new adventures. While I won't pretend to stick to any new years resolutions there are a few things that need to change in my life that I hope to get sorted!
Christmas presents are still invading our living room, soon to be relugated to bedrooms. Not till New Years Day tho. I'm lacking the motivation if I am honest, I am so very very sleepy! Too much food I suspect!

Ready for Christmas?

Hahaha don't make me laugh! I still have to buy gifts for most of the adults in the family, Christmas eve gift still to be bought ( I buy the children pjs) oh and not forgetting the food shop! I will be braving the shops today in an attempt to get everything done so that even if we get snowed in we will be fine! Unfortunately I won't be leaving for town til 5pm so I think I am in for a stressful time!! Ah well wish me luck!

Winter illness

Wah wah wah wah! I feel ill! I've had flu and basically been out of action since last Thursday. Because of course I can afford to lose 5 whole days this time of year . And I still don 't feel right. Boooo. My previous calm about Christmas has been replaced by mild panic. All the kids presents are bought ( and I'm planning to wrap tonight) but no adults gifts bought, the cuboards are bare, and worse than that so is the bank balance! Oooops! But you know what it will be ok. I will get what we need , the kids will be pleased and I'm going to a bloody fabulous time. So there!!!!

Let it snow, let it snow , let it snow

In my opinion there is one time it's ok to snow and that is christmas eve! It is NOT ok when you are spending the weekend in a caravan. It is NOT ok when you have a 30 walk to playgroup. It is NOT ok when your husband has a 40 minute drive to and from work everyday!! That said it is very pretty and the kids love it :) maybe I need to man up, wrap up warm and just embrace it!

Ps -12 is NEVER ok!!!!

Easily offended

I was talking to a friend about art and I mentioned I used to draw. She asked to see some so I posted some on facebook. Lots of people said nice things but once person was less than complementary and said I couldn't draw at all. I feel really offended!! But why should I ? They are of course entitled to there opinion and if I didn't want comments I shouldn't have posted on a public forum ... But still I feel sad!! I think it's because I was brought up to not say anything if I couldn't think of anything nice! Do you welcome comments good AND bad??
