I am tired. Dog tired. Exhausted in fact. Ari is teething. If anyone has some natural teething remedies to suggest I would be happy to hear them. Ari is not coping at all. I blame the male gene and it’s associated lack of pain threshold. We are trying Brauer Homeopathy teething relief (with little effect). I am looking at buying an Amber teething necklace. Does anyone have any experience with those? I hear varied reports.
Ella turned 7 last Monday. This is how I know what the date is everyday this week. I count back to her birth date on a Monday, add 7 days to get me the date for this Monday and then add up to today which I know is Wednesday. That is how tired I am. I tried to explain to a friend on the phone last night how I have trouble stringing sentences together, and I even had trouble finding the words to explain to her that I have trouble stringing sentences together. I haven’t found the cereal in the fridge and the milk in the pantry yet, so I am hanging in there.
Anyhow….Ella is 7! Wow. She is a story writing machine these days! She read her story out at assembly on Monday entitled “The Weird Caterpillar”. It was about a cocoon that appeared in her garden, and hatched out an alien. She writes amazing prize winning plots. A recent story included the word paleaontologist, as all good stories should.
I discovered this awesome knitting book in Spotlight last week. Here is creature #1. The girls (and their friends!) have put in requests for many more. I have just finished up a cosy pram blanket for a new baby girl in Ireland, so I will show you that once it has arrived safely.
It has been cold in our part of the world, even cold enough for some snow on the yonder hills. These are the same hills that were ablaze in the fires 4 months ago, which is why we can see the snow so well without a cover of leafy trees.
