Christmas and the New Year are well and truly over, Beauty went out with the child minder and Beauty looked thrilled when she realised what was happening. Beauty has little or no sense of anticipation so when she turned the corner and saw the child minder, she loudly proclaimed , 'bye, see you soon' . I have watched Beauty on the computer and I am very impressed with her computer skills. Considering the fact that the last psychological report placed her emotionally at 12>18 months, I am very pleased at the way she is developing in other areas and educationally she appears advanced in certain ways. Her speech isn't clear but then 4 out of 5 of her sisters had speech and language problems and saw therapists. From what I am able to understand when she is chatting away with her toys, I can tell that she is making up stories. She is also able to name lots of animals, insects, colours ,shapes and food. Some of her speech is very appropriate, when I bought her bongo drums she said,'now that's a good idea'. She is developing daily and I am grateful, she has come so far from the day when she would sit silently rocking in a cot.
Welcome back Anastasia, even with the lack of natural snow I hope the skiing was good, oh and the company amicable! The sign of a good holiday.................would you go back?
Nice to hear from you again Belle, I would love to comment on your blog but it won't let me, can you add me? My love to Beau and Woody and the in-laws. Does the mother-in-law have another email address as she never opened the card I sent her?
3 weeks Wednesday I will be in Feurteventura, perhaps next winter will be the one where we stay for the winter!
But could I get to watch Celeb Big Brother? I remember watching the summer Big Brother in Turkey so I am sure satellite TV in Spain would, they have Coronation Street and Eastenders (save us!).
Life in the BIG BROTHER house goes on and is as entertaining as ever.
Jade's mum has a bad case of wind! Oops!
The usually placid Jermaine is not at all impressed "This flatulation is killing me. I can't deal with this passing of the gas," "Right in the kitchen!"
According to ken "Jackiey is upsetting everyone. She is unreasonable and seems to not have control of her tongue or her brain, if she has one." Ouch!
Like daughter.......... like mother!

Apparently it's a wise child who knows its own parents... guess Jade is the exception to the rule...!




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.
