Yvie and Fairy; I pretty much grew up at my grandparents so know how special it is to have two wonderful people who can devote time to you when father is always at work and mother has a new baby to care for, they never made anything feel like a chore even when I "helped" clean the house or weeded the garden; I'm sure I must have made things worse! No wearing yourself out though Yvie; I hope at the very least you have air conditioning for all those miles.
Our family are now 100 miles away so I can't see us getting help with the dog - closest thing I'll ever have to a child! Mind you at least unlike my cousin who lived abroad I won't fear the grandmothers just calling from the airport having decided that they would stay for MONTHS and want a ruling hand on how the first born is raised in a country where they didn't know anyone / thing so we're also reliant on new mum for entertainment even when all she wanted was to sit in her pants with the other new hot and exhausted mums. Small mercy for knackered ovaries!
Got a text from the boss yesterday to say I'm out doing a fire safety session for 75 children. I hope they have strong immune systems because this cold is proving awful. I didn't think cold germs could survive hot temperatures?? Surely yesterday's sweat fest should have killed it all off.
I hope you all have your buckets ready to fill with rain from the impending thunder storms; my water button is almost empty!
