Sunday 27 February 2011: The moment I thought my daughter was a genius...
366/365: ... and then discovered she wasn't.
First of all. Yesterday. Oh. My. Goodness!!! Over 200 lovely, lovely blippers stopped by to say hello and I cannot quite believe that so many of you did. And after I'd blipped, I had to disappear for the rest of the day to do family stuff and when I checked back in, it was a comment avalanche!! I've read each and every comment and my toes are still tingling with blipday happiness. I've almost decided that I want to have a print copy of my first 365 so put together a photobook and will hit 'order' once I've convinced myself properly that I want to do it. I am nothing if not dithery!!
So... enough about 365s an' stuff (though I'm still cheesily grinning)... this is Maddy Moo 'doing the crossword'. She'd told me that she wanted to do the crossword and so off she went. Me, for a millisecond I thought she might actually really be wanting to do it. And when she said she was nearly done, I headed into the sitting room to see her efforts... proud mum head all a-quiver with excitement. And this is what I found that she'd done. Random words and a rainbow of colour. Oh. She's also made herself a dress out of a jiffy bag today too. 'Normal' is very far away from where Maddy's at right now! *sigh*
Think her head must be full of fairy dust and cotton wool. Felix's head, on the other hand, is filled with 'grumpy little boy'-ness. He's OD-ed on seeing people the last couple of days - friends in London on Friday and his cousin yesterday - and he's being that vile that I quite felt like digging a trench in the garden when I was planting up my herb garden earlier and sticking him in. Head first. He's out of the house with Nick at the moment, so he's being spared that (for a while!). Fingers crossed he'll come back from the birthday party he's been to in a better mood.
Hope so, because I'm having a 'mummy and Felix' day tomorrow when Maddy returns to school and Nick's off working all day.
Wish me luck! Both he and I need it. :o))
PS Have made Matar Paneer for dinner
PPS In the time it takes you to say 'Matar Paneer', my children will have declared they hate it.
PPPPS But I have my sparkly golden camera and I don't care! YAY!!!!
