What we've been up to today

Well, it started out a miserable wet day and it hasnt changed much! Its just got dark now! Me and Nicola took Lewis and Evie for a walk around the lake (in the rain ... yes nutters!) and we had a quick stroll around the outlet. We came home for a delicious lunch of leftovers, that reminds me, there are some leftovers left over (haha) so I'll snack on them in a mo! Nicola has been cooking fabulous meals for us all the time so my waistline is expanding and expanding!! I will have to invest in some elastic! Lew and Evie have been enjoying playing with the electronic christmas decorations that make lots of noise!!! So we have been bombarded with various electronic sounding christmas tunes and it was a case of headaches all round I'm afraid! Oh did I say, Lew's bath lift has arrived! Will go and try and set it up after tea (which Nicola is cooking AGAIN!!!). Who needs an au pair? Lol! We have watched The Santa Clause on DVD and are now watching The Santa Clause 2! Had a nice chat with a potential au pair from Argentina, but it seems that girls from Argentina cannot become au pairs in UK so not sure what to do now! Anyway, I think like most au pairs I have contacted she wants the bright lights of London!!! But it was lovely to chat anyway! My internet explorer is having a funny turn. I had IE7 but it seems to have downgraded itself to IE6 and if I click on a link on a website, it wont work so I have to right click and 'open in new window' ... no idea what is up with it! Have tried switching it off a couple of times but it hasnt made any difference, grrr! Have spent a little time chatting to my msn friend Tracie from Kentucky - she is my solitaire showdown nemesis! Hmmmm ... how many days until Christmas? Something ridiculous like 19!! Mad! Anyway, I meant to tell you before I got waylaid by leftovers (again!) about our walk around the lake. On our journey home, we decided it would be nice to sing christmas songs ... so we did ... we la-la-la-ed the bits we didnt know! And when we ran out of christmas songs to sing, we started singing the theme tunes for childrens programmes like Noddy, Fifi and the Flowertots, and Balamory! At that point I think we realised we were completely barmy and ready for the white coat bridage but luckily we had arrived home so we were safe!

^ I Just HAD to comment on that bit,

Christmas songs...How about Santa got stuck up the chimney? The children at the nurseries ive been at always love that one!

Or..

Pull a cracker, pull a cracker
Till it BANGS
Pull a cracker
Pull a cracker
BANG!!!!

Or...

Five mince pies in a bakers shop
warm and spicy with sugar on the top
Along came (a childs name) with a penny one day
He/she bought a mince pie
and ate it straight away

four mince pies in the bakers shop..etc...

then..
No mince pies left in the bakers shop
Nothing warm and spicy with sugar on the top
"Oh dear" said the baker with the empty tray
"i'll have to make some more"
and he did it right away..

..so there was FIVE mince pies in the bakers shop..ETC


or..

Christmas eve is here
And off we go to bed
as we climb the stair
nodding sleepy heads
take our stockings off
hang them in a row
then jump quickly into bed
and off to sleep we go

jingle bells jingle bells
Christmas eve is here
we hope old santa claus comes round
to bring some toes tonight

(with jingle bells choon!)

or...
im a little snowman
round and fat
ive got a wooly scarf
and a little bobble hat
when the snow is falling
you will hear me say
come and make a snowman on christmas day

(adaptation of im a little tea pop)


I could list more, but hey..that'l do for now...hopefully a couple of those songs will be new to you :)

The Lewis Jeynes Fund

The Lewis Jeynes Fund was established to provide care and support to Lewis Jeynes and the success of the Fund has meant that we have also been able to purchase specialist equipment for other children with undiagnosed neurologically degenerative conditions in Doncaster and the UK.

Lewis and his friends around the UK all suffer from acute and undiagnosed life limiting or terminal conditions and very often specialist equipment is difficult to afford due to the changed circumstances at home. This is where the Fund can provide vital assistance to those in need. All of the proceeds of the Fund go straight towards helping Lewis, and other children and families like him and us.

Contributions should be sent to The Lewis Jeynes Fund, 15 Kentmere Drive, Doncaster, DN4 5FL or by BACS to Nat West Bank, “The Lewis Jeynes Fund” Account No. 35662565 Sort Code 60 06 39. You can also go into your local Nat West Bank and pay into the Fund over the counter.

i love you much (most beautiful darling) by e.e.cummings

i love you much (most beautiful darling), more than anyone on the earth and i like you better than everything in the sky -sunlight and singing welcome your coming although winter may be everywhere with such a silence and such a darkness, no one can quite begin to guess (except my life) the true time of year - and if what calls itself a world should have the luck to hear such singing (or glimpse such sunlight as will leap higher than high through gayer than gayest someone's heart at your each nearness) everyone certainly would (my most beautiful darling) believe in nothing but love
