CHRISTMAS IS COMING!

WHAT THE 6 YEAR WILL NOT BE GETTING FOR CHRISTMAS!

Toys go hi-tech this Christmas

Perennial favourite Barbie goes hi-tech with this MP3 player
The annual battle for the UK's Christmas pound has begun.

The Toy Retailers Association has unveiled a list of 12 toys that it expects will dominate kids' Christmas lists this year.

Toymakers have largely played safe with old favourites and TV and movie tie-ins, but have given them a technological twist.

The list includes a new version of perennial favourite Barbie that incorporates an MP3 player, a fluffy puppy that grows bigger the more it is petted by its owner, and Optimus Prime, the robot hero of this year's hit summer movie Transformers.

Though I have been considering the IgglePiggle that is on the TOP 12 list, however, the fact that Beauty has hundreds(I kid you not!) of other soft toys, I am still not convinced.

Sometimes we say the stupidest things without thinking.
Last night SnoWhite and I were watching the film Baby Boom and SnoWhite had not seen the start of the film and so she asked where the baby had come from and I said HER COUSIN LEFT IT TO HER IN HER WILL!
Well my only defense is that it made perfect sense to me when I said it!

SUGGESTION OF THE DAY-Alistair Darling , deal with those slugs, ask Gordon Brown who his beautician is!

Everyday this week when I have picked Beauty up from school she has said HELLO, perhaps the next step will be HELLO MAMA. Now that would be nice.

I remember loving that movie. My daughter always asks me questions when we watch television and often the answers are beyond my reach. I try to explain it one way and she gets totally confused. It does not help that she takes everything literally.

When I first said to SnoWhite what was happening in the film, she gave me one of thos WHATEVER looks!
Knowing my sense of humour well, SnoWhite thought I was joking.

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.
