This week can only be described as trying.  When I thought I couldn’t possibly taken on any more work or responsibilities, a few more things were thrown at me. It’s a good job I learnt to juggle as a child, it is a life skill that’s serving me well.  Libby has been somewhat truculent. She didn’t seem very well earlier in the week, although with hindsight I think she was probably just tired from a busy weekend.  Because she didn’t seem quite herself, I let her have some time just relaxing on the sofa and watching nursery rhymes on the…

This week, hubby has taken the week off and I’ve managed to spend every day and evening on work. This has given me the time to get really into setting up my palm oil free website.  Whilst I’ve been working really hard, I’ve also enjoyed it and I can see how much progress I’ve made.  The girls have enjoyed having the week with their dad. Libby in particular has delighted in taking him to ballet and playgroup, it’s a real novelty. It makes me realise how lucky I am to be at home with them all the time.  This week, the two…

A cup of tea to make you feel better

Drinking tea is a very British solution to everything. I for one find that however bad things get, they seem a little better after a good cup of tea.  As Jamer kindly pointed out, we have all been struck down with the flu recently and it really was tea that kept me going.  In the first couple of weeks of being a lurgy-ridden house, I was lucky enough to be doing a teatox. If you’re not aware of these, they are special teas that you drink morning and evening.  They are made from herbal ingredients that are specially formulated to…

A week that should have been all about Lia’s first birthday has ended up being predominantly about flu.  Sadly, Lia’s birthday itself was only a minor event. The girls were both a bit under the weather and hubby and I were both in the worst stages of it.  Nevertheless, we managed a morning out at Weston’s Cider in Herefordshire. They have a couple of shire horses and some lambs and sheep there, as well as a park and a café.  Both girls genuinely loved it. Lia spent ages standing right next to the sheep and lambs. They were quite tame but…

S.O.S – HELP ME!

Everyone has been ill with the flu for the last couple of weeks, so I’m taking over the blog because it’s my chance to call for help.  I’ve been here over a year now, they “rescued” me you see.  In my last home I was bullied by the other cats. They were those nasty Siamese type cats and they were always picking on me. So when I came here, I thought things were on the up.  I skipped through the meadows with a spring in my step, happy to put all those nasty cats behind me.  Since then though, things…
