You may have noticed...

...we are going on holiday. Soon.

Sitting next to Rhiannon, my eldest, on the settee two nights ago, I said, "We're going camping on Saturday, I'm sooo excited!"

Calmly, quietly but with kindness, Rhiannon said, "I know mum, you've been excited since April."

What does this say about me? Am I really more excitable than a child? Or is my ten-and-a-half year old daughter just extraordinarily mature and laid back for her years? Why am I soooo excited about getting cold, wet and windswept, not to mention eaten alive by the local midgie population? If you had told me, ten years ago, that I would be:
1. Camping and
2. Sooo excited about it
I would have laughed hysterically to the point of needing clean underwear.

Who said having children would never change them?



Three months to go,
I must begin a list.
I haven't booked the site yet,
Perhaps that's the place to begin!

One month to go,
I'm onto my fifth list.
I now know where we're going,
And I can't wait to get booked in!

One week to go,
I'm running out of lists.
I untangled the kites last night,
I'm not sure it'll all fit in!

One hour to go,
I'm going to pack my list.
I found all the flip-flops at last,
Now, let our holiday begin!

What Your Sleeping Position Says

You are secretly sensitive, but you often put up a front.

Shy and private, you yearn for security.

You take relationships slowly.

You need lots of reassurances before you can trust.

I love it when

I love it when you hold my hand,
It makes me strong,
It makes me proud,
I feel comforted inside.

I love it when you smile at me,
It makes me warm,
It makes me happy,
I feel comforted inside.

I love it when I feel the sun,
It makes me relax,
It makes me calm,
I feel refreshed inside.

I love it when I see the birds,
It makes me high,
It makes me marvel,
I feel renewed inside.

I love it when you laugh out loud,
It makes me glad,
It makes me glow,
I feel content inside.

I don't remember copying so much at school...

You fit in with:

Your ideals mostly resemble those of the Taoist faith. Spirituality is the most important thing in your life. You strive to live by all of your ideals, and live a very intellectually focused life.

60% spiritual.
20% reason-oriented.

A new one!

I may have mentioned before, I seem to have an addictive/obsessional character.

I've got a new addiction!

They have a message board and I just can't stay away.

So that's lists, blogging, springwatch message board.

Need to find a non-addictive hobby!
