Does it get any better ?

Playing with Lego in the drive which has been freshly decorated by ones sister with chalk, and eating a big bowl of ice cream.
I sit here now quickly updating on here because this is a moment I want to remember, remembering when they were playing out in the sunshine, no arguing, no games machines, just plain and simple playing with eachother.
Thank you for your comments on my last blog post, I am going to do a post on simplicity for me but I feel that as things have been complicated recently it may be more of a slow process to get things back to the way I need them so it may turn into lots of blog posts on the subject.

If I were to ask what what "Living a Simple Life " meant to you, what would you reply ?

Would it be living in a Hobbit Hole and having nothing to do with other people ?

Living like Tom and Barbara Good ?

Or do you just like your modern comforts ?

Answers on a post card please !
(there is no wrong or right answer, I am just pondering )

Things he wishes he had known !

Here are six things that my hubby wished he had known before we got married.

1 Ladies absolutely, never, put petrol in the car. This is a Mans job.

2 I am impatient. I love to sew but I want it finished NOW. I love it when he decorates but
I want it finished now. Ok so now you see what I mean.

3 I hate anything that crawls, creeps, shifts and scurries and it is his job as the man to deal
with such uninvited visitors.

4 I am completelty anti feminist. There are things which are for ladies to do and other such
things are deemed as mans work.

5 I will at all costs avoid touching raw meat. YUK !

6 And probably the four words he dreads hearing the most "I have been thinking"
These four words are sure to make the hairs stand up on his neck. Ha ha ha !

Having said all of this, he has known me since I was eight years old so perhaps he knew about these silly things beforehand.
