Firstly, I know blogging is slow over here… I have eight kids folks!!! And just saying: If you think you are busy when your kids are small, and people in the supermarket stop you to say: “Your hands must be full…” That’s true… but I am so much busier now, looking after a gang of big kids, than I ever was with a collection of smalls. The point is, little children do occasionally sleep… and well big kids just don’t… Needless to say a number of birthdays have gone sliding by the way and I need to catch up on them.

Happy Brilliant Birthday to Hood 1

You know you have been blogging way too long, when your big kids are all grown up and they have just one candle… lest the house catch on fire. We have navigated one or two children out of their teens… its a good place to be parenting-wise.
