Yes I am still alive and yes I know its bad to go absent without blogging but see its like this .... well.... um... Ok basically I am just lazy.

Whats been going on over the last two weeks

1. I started back at college to be told they want me to do 160 hours of reading at home for the course - YEAH RIGHT !!! - with kids its just never gonna happen

2. I discovered Reeses peanut butter cups - Now seriously why has no one told me about these before now ??? huh ??? huh ????

3. Thanks to Jilly I have a new obsession to Lost and it has already cost me £30 on a dvd box set. Yeah thanks for that Jilly!!!!!!!!!

4. I have begun christmas shopping - Dont start on me - I have to plan ahead for these things!

5. My costume didnt turn up in time for Emilys birthday party, neither did Emilys or my mums resulting in much stress and panic.

6. The one night I have to have hubby home to babysit for the party he has to work late. I mean what kind of excuse is "Hunny work is on fire and I have to help fire fighters move some of the wood before it catches fire" At the time I was not amused.

Although apparently he wasnt trying it on and it did make the news

7. Had to take my two little angels to the party costing me a fortune in fancy dress outfits

8. Watched my sister get hilariously drunk - made her promise a whole load of things including its ok to publish this photo.

9. Learnt how scarey it is when your gran dresses as Marliyn Monroe - No further comment there.

10. Finally somewhere in there I had a really bad cold for nearly a week which lots of early nights, medicine, flu remedies, Lemsip and paracetamols did nothing for, causing me to moan uncontollaby because I am actually quite a baby when I get ill

Other than that its just been a normal two weeks, I really should go and consider dressing the kids for school !!!

The children are back in school, Need I say more there!!!!

Joannas first day back and she comes home upset, someone had told her about hurricane Katrina. And since she heard that this was in America automatically thought about Aunty Natalie and Uncle Clayton She wanted to know why I hadnt told her that they were safe, this was followed by questions and questions to do with the flooding, Why the people didnt run away quickly, the people that died, their pets and teddies and lastly coffins and death. I did my best to answer but it is still on my mind as I know she will come home tonight with more questions.

I have eaten sooooo much chocolate this morning - I am having a "downer" of a day. Period pains like I havent had in years - I feel like a teenager. Ever get those mornings when you leave the house and everything seems so bright that your eyes just cant take it.

Ok I am gonna go before I ruin everyone elses day lol.

Btw Pickle if your reading this - I cant comment on your blog - I am not ignoring you. Apparently I have to be a team member to comment. I wanna be a team member pleeeaaaase and so does Jilly!!!

Fancied a change with the template - see thats what happens when the kids go back to school and you suddenly have more time on your hands.

Feeling energetic now - I might just jog to the kitchen cupboard for a chocolate bar!!!
