Happy Mother's day to all my fellow Mama's out there! I hope you're having a lovely day with your little rascals, as I am. Jack made me a couple of cards in school/youth club, and I think even more touching was when he burst through the bedroom door this morning and said "Happy Mother's Day, Mummy!" without even being reminded.
This past weeks weather has been all over the place. Rain, shine, and snow. But the cold temperatures have not ruined the beauty of the low sun and the longer days. We've been enjoying golden hour!
Past weeks news? Nothing huge. My husband has been poorly, dear love his wee cotton socks. But he battles on, even though he should rest. You know what, though? It sure makes me glad to have a husband who is usually full of craic, because right now he is actually minus-craic. Or as we've referred to him, as a 'craicuum'. He really has sucked the fun out of this weekend. This is in jest, but really, he hasn't been much entertainment because he is so under the weather. I can't wait to have my fun boy back.
I bought the boys a couple of vintage furbies (remember those?) offa eBay. It has been a blast from the past, and they both got a bit of fun out of those before Noah broke his (within the hour) and Jack tired of it's incessant demands. ("Hug me", "I scared", "Me hungry", "Tickle me") Which is funny, because they literally sound just like my two on a constant daily basis. Imagine I got bored so quickly. That wouldn't do. I hold out until 7.30pm bedtime at least.
Also, I've been thinking about rescuing a second pooch. We love our Maisey dog so much and we could provide a good home for another mutt. I don't have my husband totally convinced yet, but give me a bit more time to work on him. Anyway, the hunt is a lot harder this time around. We have so much to think about. Maisey couldn't handle an excited and enthusiastic puppy, so it needs to be a bit older. No behavioural problems as we have two kids. It probably needs to be male so there isn't a dominance issue. It could take a while to find just the right dog to fit into our busy family life. We'll hold out for the right one. C'mon Bazza, you know you want another pet in our lives...? Awk, go 'wan.
So that's our news, and here's some photos of our week that was. Happy Mother's Day, Mama bears. x
