Still Breathing!

It has been such a long time since I have posted that I thought I had better let you all know that I was still in the land of the living. All is well, just frantically busy!! Alice has started going to daycare for one (short) day a week with a friend of mine who cares for children in her home, and she just LOVES it. She spends the six hours going flat out with the two other kids, comes home exhausted and sleeps like the dead for the night. We have also started going to playgroup together at the school she will be going to when she starts kindergarten in 2012. This is great as she is mixing with the kids who will be her classmates. Once again, anything that involves play dough, sandpits, trikes and games is a winner in Alice's books!! The other big thing which has been keeping me busy is having my latest new toy installed. After five years of suffering through very cold winters with a pathetic excuse for an electric heater, I finally convinced DH that a wood heater would be a valid and prudent investment.It was installed on Wednesday and on that day summer apparently came to an end - it was COLD!!! Needless to say it has been going ever since and I adore it. The house is now toasty and warm, and as everyone knows, a warm wife is a happy wife!! Must go as I can hear Madame stirring from her nap, and it is time to go pick up the big kids from school in time for golf lessons. Enjoy the photos - the birds are a male and female red robin who like to play our birdbath. They are exceedingly cute! Will try to upload some more pics of Alice soon.
