It is morning..........early morning!
Beauty has been awake since approximately 4:15 am and is now busily listening to the story of the very grumpy bug!I personally know how the grumpy bug must have felt, perhaps the grumpy bugs baby bug got up early and wouldn't go back to sleep, now that would make you grumpy.
I spoke too soon and we are now on to the ever cheerful Dora the Explorer, I think I am more suited to The Grumpy Bug than Dora first thing in the morning, that Dora has way too much energy,I am exhausted just listening to her. I really do not know how I am going to cope with the return of the builders this morning, I can see that as Fiona's designated job this morning..........she watches the builders whilst I find somewhere to hide and catch up on my sleep. I am so too old for this.Those women who go through medical treatment in their 50's and 60's to have children do not know what they are letting themselves in for, as you get older the mind may be willing but the body sure gets weaker.
I definitely have to get more sleep, the less sleep I get the weirder my dreams. Last night I dreamt that I was in a lift with Chunk from the Goonies.I so have to get more sleep! Chunk was afraid of heights and was rolling around on the floor afraid to look out of the glass sides of the lift.
Why couldn't I have had a nice normal dream like a date with George Clooney?

I have been reading the blog No Impact Man and whilst many people seem to be critical of the intentions of the project that No Impact Man is doing it personally makes me want to give up living a greener life as it makes me feel totally inadequate.

The No Impact Experiment

For one year, my wife, my 2-year-old daughter, my dog and I, while living in the middle of New York City, are attempting to live without making any net impact on the environment. In other words, no trash, no carbon emissions, no toxins in the water, no elevators, no subway, no products in packaging, no plastics, no air conditioning, no TV, no toilets…

I give up now!

Think about what would happen if everyone stopped using elevators,the subway, clothes shopping( also part of the experiment), no products in packaging, no plastics, no air con, no TV, no buying new books( also part of the experiment)...........really think about it.
Economic meltdown!
Surely the answer is to make things environmentally acceptable(neutral) rather than everyone living without them?
Yep- I'm officially confused.

Dr Who(or maybe even Torchwood) are filming again at the Cardiff Royal Infirmary.We passed last night as huge lights were trained on the building but I'm afraid nothing to be seen, they were also filming off Broadway whilst I was on holiday, on SnoWhites friend's road.

I sympathise. I truly do. I've just had the most exhuasting 2 days at work ever and am ready to drop. However, if I start dreaming of Chunk from the Goonies I'll be on the phone to the hospital immediately!




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.
