 Linlithgow palace during some enforced exercise.  They stopped moaning about half way round.

 Snowball fight on Settle Station waiting for delayed train - frozen points.
It's gone now but I think he could have cultivated it.

Jo Smith's Day Off

Annie at Fireflies 'Play in a Week', Tom languishing with the nasty cold I've just recovered from. I tidied up all morning - see table clear - then played the flute this afternoon.

I've been enjoying the pictures on this blog.
North of the Border West of the Sea
Just need to be able to read Spanish.
Looks like what we do but more organised and tidier. We did a big mess reduction drive for the 1st of December but haven't kept it up.  Routines and Habits are needed.  I'm swimming up a crashing wave of clutter debris.  On the positive side the clutter has a certain red and gold theme to it which is prettier than usual.

Giant Spider's Web

Both children were caught in this.  Center Parcs, Whinfell not really my choice of a holiday but it fulfilled our requirements.  Its tag line 'Spend all day' made me laugh.

Production Figures

Moo is unstoppable, food and craft productions.  Her brain is producing and processing ideas even faster. some sort of new stage has arrived.  I hear it in my ears rather than feel it in my bones.

Willow Logs

For next year, now sitting in our drive looking picturesque.

No pics

Why not?  Every so often I call back here and try again, I select beautiful pictures and none of them stick.

I've been having an exciting few weeks learning how to sing.  My voice has been trapped in the back of my throat and millimeter by millimeter I'm inching it forward (yes I know but I take pleasure in using both Imperial and Metric systems).  Now I've woken with a sore throat; no singing will be hard but trying to talk much less and listen much more will be very good for me and the children I think.  What will I hear today that I wouldn't have?
Why can't I add pictures any more?

Dusty Cobwebs

Time for some cleaning, I think a bit of a duster dance and hoover hop today.

T shirts

Knoblet t-shirts for the 6 Days of Scottish Orienteering Oban 2011.  Annie pushed this project through.  House tidying: my responsibility - didn't happen
Packing: again me - bunged in car at the last minute
T-shirts: bought, dyed, image printed and ironed on
