I am hoping by changing the layout of my blog the problems I am having with the blog will stop, I can but hope.
This is a true Pollyanna moment, I am poorly but I am so glad it is not flu. The lack of appetite could also be seen as an advantage, the headaches and bad stomach are not much fun though. Beauty seems to be recovering from the initial sickness and now has a bad cold, oh well, something else to look forward to I guess.

This morning we have had a continuous showing of The Tweenie Christmas on video and Jake is still on his way to 'Birmingham' and Bella is still being a bint. It is nice to see that nothing changes and that Jake is still the most advanced 2 year old in the universe.
This afternoon I have been sewing up bags to put toiletries in for the homeless, I am making the bags out of old curtains but the material is still of a good quality.Anyway, the reason why I am using old curtains is because I like to recycle everything. As I was making the bags I thought about something somebody said years ago about another parent at a primary school, this mother was critical because another child's mother sent her child's school lunch into school in a bread bag. As I was sewing I suddenly thought, ' oh no,I use bread bags sometimes to send Beauty's lunch in. I also use used microwave meal dishes and margarine tubs, what the heck do her teachers think of me?'. I even use vintage tupperware tubs that I found in a charity shop!

I love them. Hey girls, if you see them buy them because I love them.

Out here [where food packaging is superior to tupperware] I have no option but to recycle everything. So we're both guilty as charged. Cheers




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.
