How to let your older children know how irritating they are when they want to spend the early hours of the morning watching TV, DVDs, talking, making food and generally making a noise and being a pain in the butt WHEN THEY SHOULD BE SLEEPING!
The answer is simple..............let you 6 year old who is profoundly autistic into the living room where her older sister have passed out after a sleepless night and let her turn on a Cinderella video first thing in the morning! And what is so irritating about a Cinderella video?

Nothing usually except that this is an old video and it squeaks(!) and Beauty has it on quite loudly. PLUS Beauty is flitting between the TV and the computer which is close to the living room door and on that she is playing with CBeebies games, Kevin and Spanner, also quite loudly!

Last night when I told Ariel to shut up as she was making too much noise she replied,'But I'm talking'.
I really do not know how the army are going to cope with her! Thankfully she has 4 years of a degree and officer training to go through before she is let loose on the world! Time to calm down.

Beauty went out with the child minder yesterday, but due to the early start she spent most of the time asleep. I did too! But that was fine because trying to catch up on sleep when Beauty is in the house is not an easy thing to do. I try to ask one of the girls to specifically watch her if I am resting because otherwise I will get the usual'. oh but I thought .............was meant to do it', or 'you didn't ask' which goes for any job , not just looking after their sister.

Back to my other love.......... TV!(see I do not always talk about bugs!)
Last night we watched DR WHO and it was brilliant. The story was set around the Globe Theatre in London and Dean Lennox Kelly who plays Kev in Shameless played Shakespeare.

He really was funny as Shakespeare. The Globe is definitely on my list of places to visit since I watched a documentary about the making of the Globe, it's construction was instigated by Sam Wanamaker father of Zoe Wannamaker who played Cassandra in The New Earth and End Of The World episodes of DR WHO.
I am impressed with the character of Martha Jones played by Freema Agyeman,I really liked Billy Piper as Rose but Freema definitely brings a whole different aspect to the show. But what did the DOCTOR do to upset Elizabeth I? Well I guess as they say, 'That's another story!'

I am sorry , I just couldn't help myself!

LONDON (Reuters) - A dentist was found guilty on Thursday of urinating in his surgery sink and using dental tools meant for patients to clean his fingernails and ears.
A medical tribunal said it was satisfied the evidence showed 51-year-old Alan Hutchinson, who routinely did not wear gloves or wash his hands, had risked the health of "himself, staff and patients" for more than 28 years

No wonder so many people are OCD and do not want to leave their houses when they read about things like this.

We really enjoyed Dr Who too - a nice, family romp though a little predictable plot wise. Having been to the Globe I can really recommend it - very atmospheric - though I'd definitely recommend getting a seat rather than standing by the stage! It's a long night otherwise!




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.
