I don't want them to grow up too quickly and miss what being young and carefree is all about.
I want them to enjoy it all. But being their mom, I want to be part of their enjoyment too...So far so good.

It's All Go Here.

I  have been a bit absent from blogging lately but only because life seems to be flying by and I can't catch up. It was April a few minutes ago, I'm sure of it but here it is May 13th! 

Our river has gone up and down like a yo-yo, leaving crap in it's wake each time. The water has left everything incredibly green around us. Trying to cut the jungle that is our lawn was back breaking and really boring.

Rooster and I have escorted 248 ( 5 coaches full) nearest and dearest in and out of the Olympic park to watch Men's Field Hockey. Great day out. We didn't loose anyone which was the best result.

We have had three weekends in a row of family and friends staying at our house, 11 to sleep over last weekend but 18 to feed all May Bank holiday. Rooster boy's new girl friend was one of the guests sleeping over so naturally, I spent the whole night with super sonic ears to the grind stone to discourage any wondering of the two. My fridge was so bare on Monday night that I actually had a good chance to wipe down the shelves!

This weekend it is the start of Study leave for the Chick. First GCSE exam is Monday so she is already stressed. We have the Great Aunt from Idaho staying as well so my job is to keep her out of the house by taking her to every garden in the area so the house is quiet by day. Except it is cold out! Sun is shinning 
finally but we have had to layer up to go out. 

Yesterday was manic as I took delivery of a swarm of bees. My mentor called and said our neighbours had a swarm attached to their pool cover and did I want them? My hive has been sitting in the garage waiting but I had to put everything else together pdq. Between the rooster boys' cricket game in the village and trying to get ready for lovely dinner out with family, I had to don the bee suit and introduce my new bees to their new home! I did take my heels off and put on the pink wellies to do so though. Husband was very impressed when I ran up the road in my white suit, stripped it off in the hall way only to be totally dressed up under neath and ready to go for 7:30pm sharp. 
Today is another garden tour then bee-sitting and hopefully 5 minutes hiding in the back garden with my face up to the sun it I can. 

I have been keeping my 365 project going though. I wish it was as easy to blog from my phone as it is to take and send a photo everyday. I must work on that.
