How tough is motherhood?

Beautiful. It’s just great.

Mummy Says...

I’m forced awake before 6am everyday for another round of this thing that is life. I’m always woken by screams after a night of perhaps five broken hours of sleep. I tend to the basic necessities of two small human beings – I feed, wash and clothe them. I express my love for them. Over the next couple of hours, I lift one or both of them continuously, I reason with the larger one using negotiating skills that would make my country proud. I settle disputes, I calm anger, I kiss away pain. I make decisions for them, I make choices about the things that matter most in their lives. At the time that most London office workers sit down at their desks for the day, I drink my second cup of cold but strong coffee. No-one ever says thank you.

This is motherhood. It is not the world’s hardest…

St George’s Day Celebration

Hey Jesse, let’s celebrate this next year. Deal? Bethany can come too. Maybe, Eddie.

Don Charisma

We like celebrating the past over here in England, and what better way than dressing up a St George (even if you are a woman), and wheeling your best mate around in a wheel-barrow race. The race was strictly for over 18’s as both the wheeler and the wheelie had to down a 1/2 pint of beer on passing a pub, and there are about 4 on this short 200m high street. Oh, and they had to do the course twice, most of it uphill.

Sound like fun to me, so long as you don’t fall off the barrow.

A SATELLITE VIEW OF EARTH ON EARTH DAY

EARTH FROM SPACE ON EARTH DAY 2014 NASA

Satellite Image by NASA

NOAA’s GOES-East satellite captured this stunning view of the Americas on Earth Day, April 22, 2014 at 11:45 UTC/7:45 a.m. EDT. The data from GOES-East was made into an image by the NASA/NOAA GOES Project at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md.

In North America, clouds associated with a cold front stretch from Montreal, Canada, south through the Tennessee Valley, and southwest to southern Texas bringing rain east of the front today. A low pressure area in the Pacific Northwest is expected to bring rainfall in Oregon, Washington, Idaho, stretching into the upper Midwest, according to NOAA’s National Weather Service. That low is also expected to bring precipitation north into the provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, Canada. Another Pacific low is moving over southern Nevada and the National Weather Service expects rain from that system…

Who’s the April fool?

We were going to introduce Jesse this month.

We were going to cover the release of (N)ception‘s new album.

There were lots of plans.

There’s really no excuse for not doing your job, unless that excuse is seizures…I hope.

I hope that’s enough for everyone to realize WHY this stuff isn’t happening.

As I sit here, tapping out words on this frustrating keyboard, it takes me about twice as long as usual. I’m trying to kick my brain into high gear. It isn’t working.

I woke up on the couch. No clue how I got there. If I was 20, I wouldn’t worry, but I’m not. At my age, waking up and having no idea where you are or how you got there is scary. I’m terrified I’ll wake up one day and not recognize my family.

So, there is content coming…I promise. I just have to deal with a seizure disorder first.

If I disappear, you know why, but I am getting a few others ready to go today so they can start posting for you too! Hope you guys are having a great week. Prayers appreciated. Facing lots of invasive and uncomfortable procedures.
