Hey peeps

I'm in full throes of harried motherhood right now. Kiddo is on winter break, and since the weather is so dismal and awful here, we're stuck inside the house and all I get to hear is video game music or surround-sound TV noise.

And when you know my kid - mind, he's a good lad, just talks waaaaaayyyy too much! - you also know that within one hour of being with him, you're fit enough to book yourself for a lobotomy, stat.

Not in any position mentally to do anything but read and hope to understand what my eyes are picking up to send to my scrambled brain. Plus time just zips by, and when you're temporarily one parent down in your household (my husband is at a workshop and leaves and gets back home when it's already dark), it's not easy being 24/7 with a rambunctious 8-year old who can talk the hind leg off a donkey.

So that's why I'm not posting much this week. Things should get back to normal next week when my husband's job goes back to normal, but in the meantime, I have to hang in there.

From Mauritius with love,

Hi Zoe,
I am visiting you via your Facebook pimp day!
I have an 8 year old grandson and can vouch for the endless talking...
Hope you meet lots of new friends today!

Hi Doreen! Thanks for coming over. Lol, my mum keeps telling me my son takes after me, and suddenly I have so much more respect and admiration for her because she put up with me. :)
