I am *hilarious*

We've had a lovely family day today, playing in the snow, doing a much-need grocery shop, and finding new games to play. Top of the list were sliding around the living room floor in an accidentally stolen Sainsbury's basket, and putting a ball in my mouth (really, I can't think of any other way to phrase that), spitting it out and saying 'Pop'. Days like this, I feel like the best mother ever.

And yes, that means I haven't done anything off the list. I don't care anymore. I've done far more than I would have done if I hadn't started this project, and I'll keep trying to catch up. But I won't beat myself up if I can't do it, and I'll enjoy days like today, guilt-free, because this time is so precious.

That's so wonderful - looks like he could have watched you do it all day! I think you deserve a break now and then to be the funniest mama in the world. :)

This is just wonderful. Pure gold! Amen to days like this!!

Just to let you know that unfortunately, Glovecat won the draw for no. 5, but I feel bad that you lost out so I've got something to send you anyway. Can you email me at tammyhanna at hotmail dot com with your postal address please?

Thanks x
