Beauty loves to play music on the computer and dance to it, however her dancing is more like punk pogoing!to BBC 2 TV adverts! The funny thing is BBC2 doesn't really have adverts and they are just a collection of introductory shorts that lead into the programs. These shorts are basically 2's bouncing around to really bland music! AND they are driving me insane! She also loves Lady Heartily who does amazing videos combining songs with animated films on YouTube but can I get her to watch those at the moment? Not a chance.
At the moment her favourite one is a group of 2's doing English country dancing but of course Beauty does her pogoing to it.
What more can I say?

Beauty's hands are getting a lot better and soon they will be healed up and she also seems to have stopped chewing them which of course is good news.

Beauty also loves to sing and she seems to pick up songs really quickly, especially songs that I play in the car. So I have decided to play certain songs in the car that I would like her learn.
Her sisters have decided that the first songs to be learned are Simon and Garfunkle, Dolly Parton and Karen Carpenter................family favourites. Simon and Garfunkle for Anastasia, Dolly Parton for SnoWhite and of course Karen Carpenter for Belle who has been a Karen Carpenter fan since she was about 8(and of course Belle also has a beautiful voice like Karen Carpenter).Belle also loves the name Karen and at one point wanted to be called Karen, the qualities of a true fan.

I really need to move house if only to have enough space to have have a field of washing lines. Beauty is a bit of a mucky pup so clothes changing happens a good few times a day, her bedding all has to be washed every few days and the throws on the chairs and sofa are done every other day and this does not include the every day washing. Thankfully I use an Eco-Wash.
At the moment, we seem to be overflowing with chocolate stained clothes due to the eggs that seem to fill my house!

Oh well, more washing to peg out!

Pogoing to english country dancing? How marvellous! I might have enjoyed it a bit more at school if they'd allowed us to do that!

Glad to hear that Beauty's hands are healing well.

I'm a huge Karen Carpenter fan myself though it's at odds with the rest of my music collection. I just like the honest throaty sound of her voice when she sings.

Eco wash! don't know exactly what it is, but I can imagine. Meanwhile I'm here in the good ol US of A, the most technically advanced country in the civilized world with a machine that looks like something out of 1950's laundromat. It has 'off' it has 'on' it has 'hot' it has 'cold.' Whilst I'm no mathematician, there definitely aren't enough combinations.




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.
