Idents are out ...........Barney is in!
Thankfully we have only 2 days until the holidays,I don't think that I could cope with anymore Barney than that in one go.

My children say that their father is like a Womble, they say that he digs through his ordinary rubbish bin to see if the girls have thrown anything in that could be recycled.Well I know exactly how he feels.........each time I open my bin I find something that the girls could not be bothered to put in the recycling. It is so irritating because the recycling and rubbish bins are next to each other! I am reliably informed by one of my daughters that the last time I went on holiday the recycling became a little slap-dash. Well as long as they pay the council fine and they realise that it is their future they are filling with rubbish(I have the feeling they would care more about the fine than the future).
I think that councils should arrange viewings of rubbish dumps or make video nasties to show exactly what happens to our rubbish to encourage more recycling.I have been recycling for over 18 years and it is so much easier now since the councils are so actively involved.

Is Barney that rather camp, American, purple dinosaur? I find him really disturbing for some reason...!


Very disturbing.
My older girls have made up songs of what they would love to do to him. Nothing nice! Go to YouTube and search Barney, Barney is killed in many gruesome ways. Barney has the weirdest effect on people.Under the age of 6 and you would die for him, over 6 and you constantly think of ways to kill him!

Bizarre! I never knew there was such an all encompassing hate club for Barney! The trouble some people have gone too...! I bet the actor in the Barney suit never admits to his day job...




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.
