The one's left behind :(

Well yes, she has gone to sunny LA, this is the poor Hubby slaving over a hot stove tending to two needy children all on my lonesome......................................YIPPPEEEEEEE!!!!
No, no that's un called for.

The main reason for Anna letting me post is to update her on how we are managing without her. Well I would like to say I finding it difficult looking after the girls and keeping the house nice and stuff, but really its not that bad.

I am sure you'll all be glad to hear that Lilly is getting better. Put it this way, she hasn't spoken for two days and the first thing she says is "NO!!!" she really is her mother's daugter?!

Back to events. Saturday was a disaster, Izzy decided to recreate an epicode of the popular childrens TV show " clutter nutters". The show invites a child to have their room made over and removing all the clutter from a kids room. This is done by firstly asking the child what he or she wants to keep or throw away, ( are you starting to get the picture) Anyway Lilly is the child and Izzy the presenter. Izzy takes an item of clothing, toy whatever and asks Lilly if she wants to keep it or not. Lilly answers no! and how presto the item is thrown into the landing. 2500 Items later we have one empty bedroom and a bombsite of a landing. At this point Izzy decides she's had enough of this game and wants to do something else. At this point I tern into the Nutter part of the show and throw a complete wobbly.
2 hours later the bedroom is back in some sort of order.

Sunday however has been amazing. Izzy has been an absolute angel, and more than made up for the clutter nutters of Saturday. In the morning I made a list of tasks we needed to achieve. tidy up living room, bedrooms, ironing that sort of thing. The girls were tasked with tidying up the playroom, to which Lilly's "no echoed again". Izzy and myself finished it off. Then due to the room being tidy I received a pretend phone call from Izzy on a spare fax machine (that she is calling her office) The young girl on the phone calls herself Lara and she's looking for a job? Well with several items remaining on the earlier list I gave this to her, explained what was left to do, and within 45 mins all of the upstairs was clean and tidy, beds made the whole 9 yards. I was impressed to say the least and gave her some wages. Slave labour I love it!!

In the evening I asked if the girls wanted to send a picture to mummy. They were drawn on the computer.

Izzy's master piece is entitled star night.

Right my first problem with this blogging thing? I have just tried to upload the image star night but with no success. Lilly's creation was aptly called "mummy flying off" a much more abstract affair, with great use of the dark palette. Maybe on Anna's return she could sort the thing out, or I could sell them on ebay.Ah well, Anna if your out there, you'll have to wait until you are home.

Talking of home, Lilly is missing her mummy, and is quite grumpy, well going beween grumpy and hyper maniac devil child. Ain't she just a darling. Izzy on the other hand is very grown up about it and says it's ok because she keeps mummy in her heart. (wow)

Well thats enough from me, you have probably fallen asleep by now " WAKE UP ITS NEARLY OVER!!!"

well to my wife I Hope your having a Fab time ( just a little Annarism there)

Take care everyone. If you see my wife at CHA give her my love.
