Wednesday

This is a pic of Chris, Joe and Sam when we went to the Long Man of Wilmington. John's youngest Chris (15) and my baby Joe (12) and my big boy Sam (15). John also has James who is 16 and Emma who is 20. I will try to find some recent pics of them too. We are so lucky to have such lovely kids.


Thank you for your kind comments. It makes me smile when I see people commenting on my blog!


Firstly, just to answer Dolores question, No I don't nap during the day, I used to when the kids were small. But not nowadays - I make sure I don't no matter how tired I am. Anyway, on that note, I did sleep better last night. I just went to bed when I was tired. I did a lot of work on my creative writing last night. I am enjoying it. Then I read myself to sleep.


Sara Sara! Guess what? I had a doll named suzy too! I also had a doll called 'doll, doll'. I also had Big Ted and Little Ted. And Big Ted sits on my chair in the lounge, he is a bit old now!


Thank you for the comments about Sam. I will calm down and I'm not going to pressurise him. I still can't help worrying though. He is a very bright lad but his head is in the clouds. I suppose most 15 years olds heads are! Bless them. I do love teenagers. I got cross with someone yesterday, 15 year olds just seem to be labelled as yobs and louts. Yes a small majority of them are but if you have a 15 year old, you know that they are young adults trying to find their way in this awful world and I do hate it when people just think they are all the same. Well my Sam is not a lout, he is not a yob, he is a wonderful, lovely, loving boy. He is kind, caring and very well mannered. All his friends are too! I absolutely love it when he has his friends round, they are such fun and make me laugh. I treasure my boys.

Aww... Suzy :o)

Smiling to myself over Suzy memories, now I've forgotten what else you wrote!

Ah yes, yobs. Isn't it sad that the small minority give such a bad name to the rest. Your boys don't look like yobs at all.

Yobs :o)

Glad you slept better.
