Thanks to everyone who left comments yesterday. I am happy to say that Yesterday was a much better day & today is shaping up nicely too:-)

There was no real reason for being in such a foul mood on Wednesday, just lots of little niggles coming together at once really. Add in lack of sleep & throw in some hormones, and it's a recipe for moodiness:-(

For those of you worried about the state of my marriage, rest assured we did discuss it before going to bed that night & he apologised for being such an idiot. On the whole, I know he does tons & tons of stuff for me, but being a selfish cow, I usually want more;-)

The weather has improved a little bit again, so the girls spent some time playing in the garden, which gave me a couple of minutes quiet time - more laundry as they got themselves soaking wet & covered in mud - but quiet time nontheless.

Today is supposed to be quite sunny, so maybe we'll wander down to the beach later - or try out one of our newly refurbished parks, which are supposed to be quite nice now. I was going to go swimming, but don't think I can face all that effort today.

I've got a quiet weekend lined up - Mstr A's school fete tomorrow (I went and collected some stocks from the re-enactment group stores yesterday, so we can throw wet sponges at our children - what fun!), then a couple of friends are coming round for the evening to drink & play Talisman. We used to have Talisman evenings with another couple every week but they stopped socialising when they became dog-owners! This is our first attempt to re-start the tradition:-) Before the children came, we used to play quite a lot of board games, but now we just slob in front of the TV in the evenings:-( Time to change again I feel:-)

    Oh we love board games too. We regularly go to friends houses or have friends over. Our favorites games are Cranium, Risk, and Boggle.

    Our addiction is Scrabble. We used to play it all the time before the little people came along. Then it sat in its special place in the kitchen for years, gathering dust.

    Lately, however, the kids have expressed a strong interest in the game. So we've been playing it fairly regularly. It's wonderful to play with them.

    Thanks for the lovely vignette. I'm a first-time visitor from Michele's. I'll be back, because your blog is oh so readable and fun.

    LOOK Carmi is here too, boy he gets around! *smile*

    We ADORE board games at our house, along with a plethora of other things, including LEGO.

    I too am also a first time visitor from Michele's. I'll be back though, you can count on that.
