HALLOWEEN FUN


Early wake up call from the 7 year old.......pooping and up-chucking!
Nice wake up, now I am spending my day washing the bedding and EVERY change of clothes. Thankfully she isn't too ill as when she is very poorly she takes to her bed or the sofa but today she has made herself a little nest next to the sofa and is happily watching videos on the small portable TV and Cbeebies on the large TV! Well what ever keeps her happy.
My Pollyannaism for the day.....I am glad that I no longer have white carpets but wood floors.
I also had a bit of a funny tummy last night but it passed quickly but true to form, when I have an infection of any kind it affects all my joints so today I am managing to do things but a lot slower than usual.

We moved back to Wales in 1990 so the children could go to Welsh language schools and we moved to an older terraced house 2 minutes walk from the University and the centre of the city. In the last 17 years I have seen a lot of changes in Cardiff, especially in the attitudes in the very student area in which we lived. Last night the area was absolutely overflowing with young people dressed up for Halloween, we even saw one group of approximately 15-20 men dressed only in bikinis! And they all seemed to be having good natured fun, it was really nice. 17 years ago when we moved into the area(and it was very much a student area even then), very few people would dress up and party. I do think thank society has become more social and I think this is a good thing, of course you will always get some who act silly but I think that will always happen.

Actually it was pretty cold but I think the warming drinks were helping.

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.
