This week...

It has been a bit of an all sorts kind of week, lots happening and nothing at all. The internet came back on as mysteriously as it went off and peace was restored to this house. 

The flea problem seems to be well and truly under control, the cats have new flea collars and all the rooms have shown no further signs of the little invaders. 

The children and I spent afternoon and evening watching Jurassic Park, followed by The Hulk and then The Fantastic Four. 




Charlie had found a new sleeping place and Jim helped with the washing up. Sort of...




The rabbits have been cleaned out and then loved, when putting Jason back in his hutch he gave an almighty kick and scrammed my arm quite badly. Ouchy...






We had never eaten "Fruit Loops" before and probably never will again, for all the "Americanism" of them, they are pretty dire. Every other film of the 70's and 80's that was made for children seemed to have this cereal playing a cameo role, therefore becoming a desired object, in this house anyway. So we decided to try them, just to see what all the hype was about. 

Our unanimous verdict... MEH...


As a result of not eating the strange fruity loops (meh) the children, as always, were still hungry. I appreciate that they are still growing and need constant feeding but it has become a bone of contention in this house. 

Food arrived and was quickly snaffled away before the end of the week, ingredients for meals obviously remained, but all the nice picky, snacky bits had gone and everyone, at one stage of another, stood at the fridge and declared "There's nothing nice to eat" to which I would always reply "eat some fruit" or "have a drink instead"...




 The food especially disappears at night... Something to do with the teenage residents I would assume, more than any other.




And they have no regard for the notice I lovingly leave them when I have gone to bed... 

Still it could be worse, Not sure how, but I'm sure it could...

Anyway, as always, leaving the best until last, Jim is massively pleased with the grass that is growing now. 

He is like a proud father, showing every visitor and guest to the house his new offspring...

  2. Thank you Rose, These kids are forever hungry and growing at an alarming rate, all but Katie are taller than me, Katie however is catching up fast and at age 11 has size 8 feet... Charlie was keeping out of the way from all the flea spraying but we though it funny that we could only see his foot and a bit of his tale up on the cupboard. The grass is growing by the day and we have reseeded some bare patches. It is looking much better now. x
