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.....
