Beauty is not playing ball! She is however playing with the new DVD/VIDEO player at 7.15am, I know for some people that is not early but when Beauty has been awake a few times in the night it seems early. I like to wake at about 6 am, take my painkillers and let them slowly kick in, quietly. However, when you have a 5 year old in a tiny lilac nightie that makes her look like something from Barbie's Fairytopia punching buttons ( that I still do not know how to work!) and switching constantly between CBEEBIES(The Koala Brothers), The Wiggles and Winnie The Pooh it is just too much noise and stress. I must be grateful however that Ariel is asleep as her noise levels last night were nearing illegal levels and Fiona was not helping, every 5 minutes they were yelling,'Mummmmmm, tell her, she's been on the computer longer than me, it's not fair!'.
Give it up girls. They are 15 and 16 not 5 and 6.
Alert-just had to get Beauty down off the Rose cupboard again! In the last few days Beauty has been very persistent-not naughty-just very persistent and climbing the cupboard seems to be her 'thing'.
Beauty can now count to twenty but when she comes to 15 she says fiveteen, she is a star.
Beauty has now calmed down and is watching Lazy Town and 'reading' her colouring book.
I am quite happy for Beauty to watch CBEEBIES or videos or DVDs but Lazy Town is just plain wierd! It is a children's program created by the ex-world aerobics champion and it is all about healthy living and it is set in a fantasy puppet land and in it there is Sportacus(the superhero), Robbie Rotten the Baddie and Stephanie the friend of Sportacus and they are real people and the rest are played by puppets. It is all about promoting a healthy lifestyle for kids, which is good but tell me why if Sportacus is so healthy he sleeps in his clothes? And Robbie Rottens suit is just a little bit too tight-now if a girl wore a suit that tight there would be complaints( from some obviously not). Witnessing Robbie Rotten's lunchbox is not a pretty sight. I don't think it is that I am a prude(for goodness sake have you ever watched an episode of the Hoobs-they are so rude) I think it's just that it is a foreign production so it comes across as different and when I get used to Stephanie's mega watt smile blistering my eyes first thing in the morning it will seem as familiar as Pauline Fowlers miserable smile(not that I would ever watch a soap of course-yeh whatever!).

An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
