Thank you Mr IT Man.

Here I am again,further computer issues have kept me offline but I am pleased to say that my favourite IT man has fixed the problem.......oh and he also fixed SnoWhite and Ariels bikes so he is quite the allrounder really!
I am now using a laptop that came from our Geneva family and it is brilliant,many many thanks.
My German is increasing daily as the main operating system is in German,not a problem to Beauty as she just uses the keys the same as before but me I have taken a while to figure it out!Typical.

Family update I guess
Anastasia spent the weekend in Geneva but is now back in Vienna
Belle is in Florida having fun in the sun,lucky girl
SnoWhite is of course home from Syria and back to being OWNED by IKEA!
Ariel is somewhere in Syria touring-REMEMBER Ariel I said no Iraq or Afghanistan!
Fiona is back in `col`
and Beauty is thankfully back in school.

Remember I said NEVER AGAIN about au pairs?
Well I am seriously searching as I will go insane with Beauty home for the 6 weeks summer holiday.
Beauty is getting very big and very brutal.
The other morning I was literally kicked out of bed at 3.05am and my hip still has bruises on it.
Beauty had woken up and wanted to come down stairs and she knew she couldn`t come downstairs with out me so my hip was kicked to bits.

Yesterday I did a lot of work in the garden but no photos yet as uploading in German is still a bit confusing so I shall upload them to my other laptop and put them on my blog that way.
Today we bought our final one of the seven dwarfes, now we have to name them!
Obviously they will have to have their Disney names but they will need their own names,perhaps we can get Beauty to name them.
Yes I am officially sad!
My garden is a riot of colour and Fiona is embarrassed by it and her phrase of the moment is LESS IS MORE I care.
And this from the girl who wants me to paint my garage yellow........that is so not happening,it will be a nice clean white.Well nice and clean until the lovely Welsh weather makes it a grubby grey.

Cardiff Freecycle continues to drive me crazy with lots of no shows but thankfully packaging for ebayers, jam jars and car boot `stuff` goes very promptly.
I am at present spring cleaning (clutter clearing) and it feels great, very good therapy AND it`s free.

Three cheers for the IT man. Good luck with the au pair!




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.
