It seems I am blogging back for good,well it seems that way anyway!

As always I am multi-tasking as I write and I am also cleaning at the same time(well not literally but you know what I mean).

Somebody who has a very small baby and a toddler asked me yesterday how I could have had children so many times meaning when the whole thing is so exhausting.Well looking back on my life it was probably being 'The busiest bee in the beehive ' thing and the whole desire for the 'Whole Celestial Deal' but now I am definitely way too cynical and it was probably a good thing that I had them when I did or Anastasia would have been an only child(not forgetting her older brother of course). Motherhood definitely takes youthful exuberance to pull the whole thing off.

I was 'proper poorly' when I had Beauty at 39, it would probably kill me now!

When I go on holiday there are 2 things I tell my children

1.If the animals die do not try and replace them with similar to make me think nothing has happened,I WILL BE ABLE TO TELL THE DIFFERENCE! The animals we have are psychotic and the the pigs we have are brothers and way,way too friendly with each other, so YES I WILL KNOW!

2. If you break something like a fridge,mirror etc tell me because I WILL FIND OUT.

This summer whilst we were away I am happy to say the animals are all fine but one of my saucepans went on holiday on it's own to Lourdes and was miraculously healed!

I came home to find that my IKEA(no not Le Creuset, blood would have been spilt!)saucepan had been magically fixed and nobody knew how.Because the saucepan is so small it has to be placed very carefully on my cooker or the underside of the handle will get burnt and it has been burned a number of times.Yet I came home to find it was miraculously healed........surely this is a sign?

My opinion?

Somebody burnt the butt out of the other saucepan and replaced it!

I am now eating my lunch whilst writing and my one piece of advice for today is......ASDA's own Tomato Soup is nowhere near as good as Heinz Tomato Soup.

Why PROCRASTINATION can be so off putting!

This is my post for the 6 weeks of summer,sorted and ready for recycling.It took ages to sort and as you all know,the ECO PRINCESS hates recycling!!!!

Honesty is always the best policy but coming home to new accoutrements can't be all that bad either!

It's very therapeutic throwing things away, and virtuous if they go in the recycle bin. I love that green bag...




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.
