Let us hope that this means that the airports can get everybody to their holiays on time.
I flew back on a plane from Portugal on Christmas Eve when Beauty was six weeks old and it was an eventful experience. We were placed in seats at the front because of the baby but we were also close to the toilets! I am so grateful that I have little sense of smell, every child on the plane decided to 'lose their lunch' on seats, walls and floors in front of my seat! I spent most of the flight being a nurse to kids who just wanted to be in their beds waiting for Santa. Oh and that was also when Pianoman went around a roundabout the wrong way, his excuse 'there were no signs'! It would have sounded better if he had reminded us that he had learned to drive in Germany(other side of the road)..............BUT he was in the army in the tank regiment(I kid you not!). I could write a book about my eventful life!

He once went on a coach trip with the local conservative club(WHY? Don't know but it happened) and gave them a rendition of The Red Flag, he came home unharmed thankfully. The conservatives got their own back though, one election day they papered the front of our house with conservative election posters! Sadly I cannot remember his reaction!

Say Hi to Buzz, Beauty's toy dog, a friend for Woody! They could be twins!

Yes, so funny to hear little voices singing 'keep the red flag flying here!' Glad to hear that 'play' is on the agenda. Not long now. Best wishes

No email - so I'm forced to warn you publicly! You absolutely have to stop mentioning Asda [nor Tescos, Sainsburys etc] It's so grossly unfair - you foreigners with your Supermarkets! Onion bhajis, hazelnut yoghourt, freely available marmite..wicked woman. love m




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.
