The last few things…

December 20, 2006

  I’m getting the last few things in the morning. My friend is minding no.4 and her own little boy, my ‘Adopted’ one, and I’m going to be on the loose. A mad dash to get those things we usually forget. Plus, it’s no.1’s birthday on Friday, so I need to get her an outfit for her Big Day. She has opted for a shopping trip followed by McDonalds and two friends to sleepover. It’s all go!

 We took our little boy to see Santa in Arnotts, Dublin. The best Santa I’ve ever seen (apart from Miracle on 34th Street, the original) He was very blase about the whole thing until Santa said “Bob the Builder” He was alert then!


A little ramble…

 trophy.gif Well she’s done it again. No.1 came second in the Under 12’s Credit Union Colouring Competition! Is there no end to my daughters talents? (swelling head)

 *Happy Birthday to TCP on Babybulls blog. He is ONE today!

 *I was ironing away this afternoon, I usually watch a foodie programme but decided to put on a Laurel & Hardy video. Well,  I  laughed so hard I almost cried. Remember the episode with the piano?

 *Winter colds have set in, in the Lionheart household. I’m sneezing so hard I regret not keeping up my pelvic floor exercises. I just hope we’ll all be well now for Christmas.

I’m having a chat with you!

  I had a great shower tonight!  I have been soo-o busy today, and was well ready for it. Click here for the gel I used!  It was the most refreshing shower I have had since the power-shower in Prague. The shower gel I used there was Clarins and left my skin soft for weeks.  

  I’ve had the house painted this week, so I spent most of the day putting everything back into place, so the house smells fresh and clean too! When we bought the place, the walls only had an undercoat so you can imagine how grubby it got  after two years and six household members!  The new paint is ivory and its ‘wipe-clean’ (necessary with little ones)

  What do you tell your child if he/she asks you to honestly answer the question….“Is Father Christmas real?”  That’s the question I’m waiting for from No.1 who will be 11 years of age just before Christmas. She’s growing up so fast. I can’t remember what age I was when I realised he was ‘pretend’.  I might just tell her to ‘Believe and recieve!’

 Its my youngest’s birthday next Saturday, he’ll be two! I can’t believe it, seems like just yesterday I was screaming to the Receptionist at the Rotunda Hospital in Dublin, that I wasn’t fit to “fill in the bloody form”….he was on the way, no time for formalities! He’s into Bob the Builder at the moment, so along with his wooden tool kit, he’ll be a happy bunny. I’m taking him and his little friends to The Playbarn in Johnstown, did I tell you? 

 I got rid of the computer desk today, it was far too big for the kitchen. I went to P.C. World and bought a little desk for 40 euro! Great value…..till I got it home to assemble it!  Took me two hours to do steps 1 & 2! I gave up after that (and a bottle of my faithfull bottle of German wine) So tonight I finished it and I’m tapping away on it right now.

 I’m still listening to James Blunt. He’s downloaded in my library! So, when I log on, I can turn him on straight away….:lol:

I cant wait!

  march-2006-024.jpg My son will be two next month. I ordered a wooden toolkit for him, and I just can’t wait to see his face when he opens it. A friend of mine at the Toddler Group (Mums n’ Tums) has her own online business 3’bees 

 I ordered the toolbox on Monday, and it was here on Wednesday!
