Running with Balls

Last day of school on Friday and they held a sports day in the grounds.

Bratty runs with the ball (one of the balls)

Sign me Up Swannies!, That's my girl!

Boo contemplating Bocce - his great grandparents are champion Lawn Bowlers.

And Boo runs for goal too.

As you can imagine, I am a little bit snowed under now that my precious ones are off school. But part of the problem is an emerging head cold which has to be placated with large quantities of Ben and Jerry's Fair Trade Chocolate And Macadamia Nut ice cream. And I gotta say it could be made by slave labour in a third world dictator's sweat shop and I would still love it.

As soon as it shifts into another part of my respiratory tract I will write something lucid. Until then, maybe go visit the work blog. Lots of shit going down there. xx

Look at those kids! Great stuff. And I am about to eat ice cream too! I'm having a serious "there hasn't been any sun except for today in 2 weeks" kind of hit!

Oh my. Sending you lots of serenity vibes ... and healing ones, too!
Hope you are feeling better and that the ice cream cures you.

In the name of feeling better I have made large sacrifices to Ben and Jerry's the last couple of weeks. I have made two pints disappear. I am overtaken by guilt so I have moved on to Ciao Bella's sorbets. Passion flower and blood orange make me feel much less guilty than Half Baked and Neapolitan Dynamite.

Did you say Head Cold? I have not been too good myself in the last few days, they are even rumours I shared it with Cathal... I must be too generous for his own good, and Cathal's!

My "Fravourite" is B&J's Baked Alaska... it's the little white chocolate polar bears, you see. Wonder if they would cool my cold, so to speak... Let me go and check right now.

BTW, both kids look like they had a fun day.

Medical purposes...of course!
