catching up

its been so busy here, James is working his usual 12 hour days so seeing daddy is a rare treat during the week. We went to buy shoes on Sunday and the twins now light up with every step, literally. I walked into the chicken run on Monday to find it looking like someone had plucked a few chickens, but thankfully after a quick headcount they where all there and OK just started moulting.
I opened and etsy shop and am slowly adding thing to it.
I have my very first very own knitting pattern being tested as we speak and that will be available on ravelry and in my etsy shop as a kit.

Mums cancer has suddenly gotten much worse and she will be starting chemo in a few weeks, she's going on holiday to some faraway hot country first. They will be doing several courses of chemo together with bone marrow transplants. Fingers crossed this will actually help her and not make it all worse

Euan has been a dragon for the last 2 weeks and he gets very cross if we call him by his name, he flies everywhere we go and roars at everyone which gets some interesting reactions from people.
He also had his first experience with what school is like. We where at the park last thursday and after about 20 minutes this group of school children dressed in their unifroms stopped at the top of the hill. Euan climbed on top of the big slide to watch what was going on. after about 5 minutes of shouting and moving all the children where standing in neat littl groups listening to instructions and then they where let loose, this resulted in constant shouting of instructions and no's and get of's. There was this group of 30+ kids with a teacher and a handfull of mums and none of the kids where really allowed to do much since it was still early morning all the equipment was wet. after 10 minutes of this they where rounded up again like a herd of cows and they had to carry on. Once they left the stream of questions from Euan started, why where they all dressed the same, why couldn't they play, why did they have to hold hands, why did they have to walk in a line why why why. I tried to answer his questions as matter of factly as I could without showing my own dislike of this screwed up system of so called education. and after all that he sat on the bench for awhile staring into the distance only to fly of again and run around doing things dragons do. on the way home he said I don't like school I like being a dragon and running.

I have also send my last sp package of lets hope the royal mail strike doens't keep it hostage for to long!

folling the pics I just posted...

I got my second swap parcel from my secret pal, in it was a map of canada. I asked is she would mind sending us a postcard with a map on for Euans collection and she send us a big map instead Euan was very pleased and it has gone on the wal allready with bluetac. There where soe animal puffy stickers they have gone into our craftboxes and the best thing was a book called socks from the toe up by Wendy Johnson. This book hasn't been released yet in the UK!
I've had a quick flick trough and it looks reaaaaally good!

Thank you very much!!

Now the second picture is a book from "truth in science" an orginasations for the promation of creationism or "intelligent design" as it is now called (nice marketing that one!) I ordered the dvd a while ago so far i haven't had the chance to look at it yet (its all free btw) and now I recieved the book not sure why but it will make for some great discussions I'm sure!

Can it change my mind? Lol

Something really weird is going on

it 18.44 on my laptop clock I have been downstairs for about 10 minutes and the house is completely silent.

The twins skipped their nap and went to bed early. Euan was (I thought) waiting for me downstairs drinking his horlicks but when I stepped out of the bedroom I nearly stepped on Euan who had curled up in front of the door with a blanket over himself fats asleep! It took the twins about 5 minutes to fall asleep and I have no clue when he came upstairs or why he didn't jump into bed himself.

James is on his way home finger crossed it stays dry. we've been having freak thunderstorms lasting about 15 minutes or so and then blue sky's and shunshine.

I got an email from my secret pal to say that a second package is on its way. I recieved my amaon order this morning with some books by John Taylor Gatto, I'm slowely spending my birthday money. Some of it was spend on buying James a bis piece of steak, its our weddinganniversary today and in keeping with tradition he has forgotton it again. so far he has not anaged to remember it a single time lol! The steak is his punishment you see he will eat it and love it and feel even more guilty for forgetting .

The last couple of days of James's holiday where spend in a really fun way.... fleatreating the house. We somehow got an infestation eventhough the cats get treated every month. it mean having to move everything of the floor spraying room quickly shuuting the door and letting it air out before moving everything back again and repeating the same in the next room. I'm so glad we live in a tiny house!
Poor Rosie has been in several fight again and is missing lots of patched of fur, she doesn't seem to have any bitemarks so hopefully we won't get any abcesses this time.

The trampoline is a big hit and inbetween the rainshowers they are all jumping around on it. Kiwi really doesn't like it and hisses at it when the kids bounce on it.

Kelly passed her drivingtest on Euan's birthday and got her first car last week. Its rather odd to think that my 2 sblings who are both younger than me are happily driving around in cars, the pressure is on for me to finally get my license but I just can't be bothered with it. I find cars to stressfull would much rather keep walking or cycling.
