Experts say gadgets are distracting at bed time
Too many teenagers are damaging their health by not getting enough sleep and by falling asleep with electrical gadgets on, researchers say.

The Sleep Council, which conducted the poll of 1,000 teenagers, says gadgets in bedrooms such as computers and TVs are fuelling poor quality "junk sleep".

Youngsters need to be taught that sleep is important for their health, it said.

I couldn't agree more.......are you reading this Fiona, Ariel and SnoWhite?

A little peace descends on the house for 3 weeks, now begins 3 weeks of spring cleaning or should I call it summer cleaning?
I am going to sort my bedroom and my clothes, sort out my art studio and Fiona wants to move bedrooms so I will sort out the back bedroom for her.
Yesterday I spring cleaned the lounge(that's right, on a bank holiday!) BUT I wasn't able to sort out the Rose Cupboard as the key has disappeared ANY IDEAS GIRLS?

The Bunny Boys hutch is now complete and up in the front garden along with the piggy boys hutch, they seem very happy with the location.Bunny boy is very chilled and enjoying his spacious new home and the piggy boys are so nosy they are loving their spot so they can see everything that is happening through the lounge door. Those piggies may think they are a pair of bad ass boys but they are really a net curtain twitching pair of gossipy men, like the men in Last of the Summer Wine. It's funny how women have the reputation as being gossips but the men I know are THE WORST!
Talking of gossip, to cut a long story short, I used to go to church and twice reported nasty gossip that was being bandied about to the appropriate authorities and I was subsequently accused of spreading gossip by doing that-you can't win! SO my new policy is SAY NOTHING because of what happened. However, my girls come home and tell me news they hear from church and I tell them UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCE REPEAT WHAT YOU HAVE HEARD or they will probably get the blame for spreading gossip. Yesterday one of them came home with a really shocking story about someone I have known for over 30 years, a story that as far as I can see is so far mere speculation and I have told them NEVER NEVER EVER repeat it. I really would rather have not known, if it is true I will find out with the rest of the world through the newspapers etc , life can be a really horrible place sometimes. Gossip magazines sometimes come into the house through the girls BUT I would rather only hear the nice things.The fact that celebs have cellulite AND are still famous and happy is good too as that makes me feel good about myself but I am sick of hearing about the likes of Paris Hilton,Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Ritchie etc. If they do something worthwhile, all well and good but no more tales of their arrests or pictures of celebs flashing their bits PLEEEEEEAAAAAASE!

Wow. Junk sleep! That's a new one on me. I don't think I'm guilty though as I can't stand things being left on while I'm asleep. I'm quite neurotic about checking the house for "on" gadgetry last thing at night!

You are so smart to be telling your girls not to spead any gossip. For one thing you don't know if it's true. For another thing if it comes back to you guys, that makes it a million times worse, don't you think?

Your pretty princess daughters are lovely! And I LOVE the play area you have for Beauty! Wow!




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.
