Just posting to explain why not posting

Please accept my apologies for the absence of posts this week and take it as evidence that I really am a mother (in case you thought my children were actually fabricated to provide me with a cunning excuse for a blog.)

I have been coughing since last Wednesday. My husband has been in Indonesia since Monday. Jemima has an eye infection and runs away from me three times daily, when her eye drops are due, before proceeding to have a full-scale tantrum when I catch her.

Bella sits and watches it all. It's quite intriguing I am sure. Ever tried to hold down a child, her arms, her legs, her head and prize open her eyes single-handedly? Sounds very un-pc, unnatural and un-attachment I know, but I ran out of negotiating skills after the first hour. My heart goes out to single mothers. I feel a poem coming on...

I'm not complaining. Just explaining why all that has changed on this blog is the colour of the fonts. Actually that's not true. I have finally given in to peer-pressure and added some real photos. (Again, evidence that I do actually have children. And that I am not dog.)

Meanwhile scroll down and enjoy the abundance of posts from last week and come back tomorrow. Or maybe Monday...

I empathise re. the medicine bit. I remember trying to get some sort of antihistamine down my daughter's throat when she had an allergic reaction and her face swelled up. She was having none of it and would spit it out... I think we still have the pink stained-clothes (hers and mine) to prove it somewhere. And where are our partners when we need them? Hats off to single parents EVERYWHERE.... Anyways, get better J & G very soon and keep us blogged... we have missed it. T x
