If you ignore the fact that I'm so sick and I can't speak (literally)......
Whispering threateningly at the kids just doesn't seem to have much effect.
I'm relying pretty heavily on filthy looks and frantic hand gestures!

The washing machine doesn't want to work over Christmas and the yard is one big dusty heap of clay and dirt. And yet, I'm feeling surprisingly upbeat.

It could have something to do with the view......


and the prospect of a whole lot of fun!



 5 days til' Christmas!!!

  5. Are you enjoying the view of the new pool or the workers installing it...;) It's looking really good, you'll be done before you know it! My Christms lead up is quiet as we're no longer having Christmas at home thanks to my idiot brother so I've not much to do except buy a couple of presents and wrap them.
