Wow, I Am So Proud Of The Mibs Family Right Now! Just Look Wot We Done!

I am sat here, just past midnight, totally exhausted and in agony but……..

 I am SOO proud of us today…

 

 BabyMibs and myself have achieved so much in such a short time..

 

 It’s been a long hard road at times…

 

  Hard to see a way forward at times…

 

 With all that rubbish in the way!

 

 

Then salvation arrived…..thanks to a local farmer giving us some of his feed pallets

  

 And took some shifting across the field!

  

 A bit of cutting down to size later ( ok hacking like crazy with a somewhat rusty old saw!)

  

DON’T let your 5 year old try this at home folks, mine was especially trained for the pose!

Our very own Grand Design!

A little somewhere to store and recycle ALL THAT BLIDDY GRASS!

( at a fraction of the £100+ the posh gardening magazines charge for similar wooden ones!)

Ours cost us a mere six free pallets, a bag of nails, a possibly fractured if not broken thumb, much cursing, several blistered and splintered fingers, and a strange inability to walk upright once done!

And the best of it?

BabyMibs actually turned to me at the end and said “you made that better than Daddy would have!”

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS lol, it’s the little things in life that please the most, and considering I was in quite a bit of pain BEFORE we started this, and since finishing I can barely move, well, how chuffed am I?

R.I.P My Little Man – 4 Years Today – A Little Wish

Today should have been my little man Andre’s 4th Birthday,   (read about him here)  .

It’s incredible how this still feels like yesterday, yet also a lifetime away.

My one simple request in this very short post is for each and every one of YOU, dear readers, to hug someone close to you today, life is so very short and throws such unexpected curveballs so don’t waste any time in telling people close how you feel, or showing them that you really do care xxxxxx

The Worlds Saddest Egg – An Easter Tale And A Lovely Remembrance

Am sat here, tired, and more than a little reflective, having just checked my emails before retiring to bed for the night, and finding a link to  THIS  in one of the mails.

It’s a sad tale of a lonely Easter Egg, in need of a good loving new home, and for me, a lovely way to remember a lost Angel. I too lost an   Angel   almost 4 years ago, and know all too well how awful that is, and the sad fact that almost no-one wants to talk about it leaves the parents in such a lonely place, just like that Easter Egg on eBay!

Do go and have a read, it WILL make you smile I promise, and if at all possible, forward a link to all your friends. Any money raised will be going to   SANDS  , a very worthwhile charity.

Thank you for reading this xxxxxxxx

Meet My Son’s New Friends – Bill And Ben The Compost Men!

Ok, ok, I know, you are all STILL awaiting the pics of the new place…..I PROMISE I will complete that post tomorrow….

In the meantime, meet my son’s new friends Bill & Ben!

Bill & Ben Naked

Bill & Ben Naked

Ok, we decided they looked a bit boring, so borrowed some paint to cheer them up a bit! 

Bill & Ben Dressed

Bill & Ben Twilight

Bill & Ben Twilight

 But at least any would-be trespassers at night armed with a torch will be in for a bit of a shock!   Don’t forget folks, the great secret to successful composting is layers, moisture, air and warmth! 

Oh, and a scary set of teeth!

Early Lambs, awww cute factor 10 – Mint Sauce Anybody?

So, as I said, in no particular order…..

Aww cute

Earlier this week, a local farmer kindly allowed us to visit his newly born lambs, and oh, they are so cute!

Where else could BabyMibs  get experiences like this, just one of the many reasons I am so glad we made the move!

Mint sauce anyone? tee hee

For All Parents – Joke

 

A LITTLE THREE YEAR OLD BOY IS SITTING ON THE TOILET.
HIS MOTHER THINKS HE HAS BEEN IN THERE TOO LONG, SO SHE GOES IN TO SEE WHAT’S UP..
THE LITTLE BOY IS SITTING ON THE TOILET READING A BOOK.
BUT ABOUT EVERY 10 SECONDS OR SO HE PUTS THE BOOK DOWN, GRIPS ONTO THE TOILET SEAT WITH HIS LEFT HAND AND HITS HIMSELF ON TOP OF THE HEAD WITH HIS RIGHT HAND.
HIS MOTHER SAYS: “BILLY, ARE YOU ALL RIGHT? YOU’VE BEEN IN HERE FOR A WHILE”.
BILLY SAYS: “I’M FINE, MUMMY… I JUST HAVEN’T DONE IT YET. “
MOTHER SAYS: “OK, YOU CAN STAY HERE A FEW MORE MINUTES.

BUT, BILLY, WHY ARE YOU HITTING YOURSELF ON THE HEAD?”

 BILLY SAYS: “IT WORKS ON THE TOMATO SAUCE BOTTLE!”
