Funny old time in my manic world.... The husband has fallen prey to a loopy cyber stalker who declares her undying love and devotion at the most random of times.... The poor chap does dare go near the computer anymore.........

Number 3 son came home rather teary from an afternoon at the park having been on the receivnig end of a thrown stone. It caught him on his chin, so could have been much worse but it does make me rather nervous of letting them out to play on their own.....

And finally on taking the daughter to her nursery this morning I walked onto the park where it is situated only to be greeted by the local constabulary's Crime Scene Investigation unit collecting broken glass following an altercation. I know no details other than that. Far too close to home for my liking.........

I don't know what the place is coming to............

The proof, if it were required that I am indeed a manic mother of five - and wife to the chap holding the pink one!

Phew! 500 miles, 3 takeaways, a hat and 5 lovely suits later......

It went like a dream and the kids looked amazing.

Photo will be posted soon assuming I can remember how to do it!

I feel I have a deeper understanding of Napoleon and the strategies he had to devise when undertaking his quest for world domination...... Why? I know it is the question you are all asking......

The Manic family are off, en masse, to a family wedding this weekend...... Perhaps not the most tricky of situations you would have thought but remember there are 7 of us to co-ordinate, including an eldest son who is working full time and virtually living at his gf's...... Along with 3 cats, 3 kittens a rabbit (not of the battery operated variety) and a fish of dubious origin.

It's complicated!

I have managed to get painted, plucked and preened to a suitable level but have been forced by the clothe shrinking pixies to completely re-think the outfit......

I will try and get a photo of us all in our finery...... Assuming we make it!

I'm still here!

Have neglected my blog dreadfully.

Life is as manic as ever but I am trying to get back into the swing of things.........

Will try and post little and often and see how that goes.....
