I am beginning to dread going to work on the weekends we have the kids. Some kind of accident is usually just waiting to happen or invariably there will be some sort of mess to clean up. Is it because I never had brothers and am just not used to all the dare-devil stuff, rugby and mud or have I just got an adrenaline junkie for a husband?
I came home from work yesterday to find this...
Okay, the kids were bored so he made them a Burma Bridge. The fact that they needed a ladder to get onto it meant it was reasonably high off the ground! The kids apparently had a blast and showed me all the photos they had taken.
All of the kids had a go except Nick who was a little scared, but he did try later on after some encouragement from his stepbrothers. Actually it was more along the lines of "Nick ya big pussy. Even Sarah did it!!"
And when you are done walking across it, why not just hang around for a while....
And even the youngest member of the family had to give it a go...

Spring is sprung
The grass is riz
I wonder where
The birdies is
Spring is officially here. The daffodils have finished blooming, fluffy white lambs are bouncing around, and my cherry tree is in full bloom.
Had a burst of energy, attacked my vegetable garden and planted some more vegies. Replanted my bedraggled old pots at the front door with nodding pansies, sprawling petunias and upright snapdragons....spring colours of yellow, pink and blue.
You can feel everyone's mood lifting as the days are getting longer and the weather warmer. Scarves are gone, jackets left at home and more people out walking.
And look at our new addition...
His name is Casper and he is 10 days old. It is Hannah's lamb for Pet Day. Madam Sarah wanted one too, but only if she didn't have to do any work or feed it. Sigh! Needless to say, she hasn't got one. Anyway, he is very cute and already following Hannah everywhere.

Was on my way to meet Tony for lunch yesterday and wondered why traffic had slowed to an absolute crawl. I soon saw the fluorescent glow of the police vests and figured there must be an accident on this very busy roundabout. Oh well, I had time to spare, so wasn't too bothered. As I got round the corner, this was what I saw!! Apparently, a van had accelerated into the side of the bus for no obvious reason and it had ended up on top of this car. Luckily there was no-one in the car, but wouldn't you pissed off coming back to your car and finding it under a bus!!
