Hedgehogs live in New Zealand. I didn’t know this until I saw one creep, creep, creeping across the driveway and over the lawn. A spiky little splodge with feet. I shrieked. The hedgehog probably had a mild heart attack. (But it concealed it well and carried on about its creeping business.) The children were entranced. Bella followed… Continue reading Hedgehog Lies
Are You a Sicko Child-Snatcher?
Little Daughter's school sent home a notice, warning parents about a 'strange white male who tried to entice one of the students into his car while they were walking to school.'

He’s Taking Over the World.
I did something stupid and bought Big Son the latest Halo game. I told myself he would finish it in one week and that would be that. Ha. I should have done my research first.

Christmas – Moments of Joy
In two more sleeps it will be Christmas 2012. Bella has been counting on her fingers and reminds me every half hour.
