Well I feel totally energy sapped whilst the 8 year old is dancing around the lounge with the Teletubbies!

I have emptied and refilled the dishwasher,emptied and refilled the washing machine and pegged clothes out to dry and I feel like I have run a marathon with Eddie Izzard!

I don't think I have the energy to chase the Black Dog away even if I wanted to!
At least the pigs don't need cleaning out today which is definitely a bonus.

At last I totally agree with Obama on something, Kanye West is a Jackass for what he did to Taylor Swift.
But then I don't think the term Jackass should be confined to Kanye.

Anger at Iranian Holocaust denial
The Iranian president's latest denial of the Nazi Holocaust has drawn strong condemnation from Western powers.
Speaking in the capital, Tehran, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said the Holocaust was a "a lie based on an unprovable and mythical claim".
Germany said the comments were a "disgrace to his country" while the US said they would "isolate Iran further".
Mr Ahmadinejad made the remarks at an annual rally where opposition supporters clashed with police.
Reformists, who have been banned from holding demonstrations since disputed presidential elections in June, defied warnings not to use the pro-Palestinian Quds (Jerusalem) Day marches to stage protests.
'Unacceptable and shocking'
As part of the Quds Day events, President Ahmadinejad delivered a speech in which he repeated previous assertions that the Holocaust was a lie.

See......some people just don't know me at all!
Assumption is the mother of all ...............what was that phrase again?

And on a different note.
Feeling so lacking in energy I was thinking today about this poem and how I am NOW OLD(and grey under the hair colour)!

William Butler Yeats. b. 1865

When You are Old

WHEN you are old and gray and full of sleep
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;

How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true;
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face.

And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead,
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.

Moving swiftly on.......................!

Beauty just came up to me and looked me straight in the eye(remember the 'aversion' thing)
and said to me

'are we not going to have ice cream?
I am sorry but I just burst out laughing, no conversation for ages BUT when she wants something it is totally different!
Beauty is a sweetheart.

Tehran just likes needling the West... it's like watching two kids play fight (my dad could beat your dad, your mum can't cook, etc). Let's hope it stays at play fighting, eh?




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.
