Monday Magic – Inspiring Blogs for You!

Today it is a beautiful day, the sun is shining and apparently we are about to have a warm snap in the UK.  Just as the kids all go back to school – typical!  We still have a house full here and the mound of shoes grows daily inside the front door.  Our local park has turned into a swamp over Easter and several pairs of these shoes, including my DM boots borrowed by the lovely girl, are thick in mud.  Shoes.JPGI wonder how long they will sit there for?  The housework fairies don’t function so well in this house these days!

Revision time, or maybe I should say panic time, is reaching fever pitch here and the art work for the final exam piece is being practiced on every available surface…..using a mixture of paint, plaster, polyfilla, wood.  Watch this space for the outcome! The eldest and youngest visited their grandparents for a few days giving us some respite from the folders and books!

One of the blogs I have picked is The Unofficial A – Z of Babies, and it struck me this week that we have come full circle with the politics student.  When he was a baby I remember well the nights being woken for feeds….what I didn’t expect was the nights being woken at 4.30am to recur 19 years later!  This time the waking is done by a front door slamming so loudly that we could hear it shake in the frame….in the way that someone who is drunk tries so carefully to be quiet and careful, but just makes it all ten times worse.  Let’s just say he was unable to do his sister’s paper round for her that morning…..

Onto our blogs – it is World Craft Week this week, so I have shared the link to the Conscious Crafties site, where those with chronic illness or caring for a loved one can show you their handmade crafts and designs.  There is a story feature, a book review and easing chronic pain with pole dancing!!  So time to sit back with your coffee and enjoy so fantastic blog posts….
