The devil has blonde hair and blue eyes.

I now know why Euan doesn't look like Tim or me, he is the spawn of the devil! In the last few weeks he has gradually turn from the angel he was. A friend laughingly said that as he was such a placid, content and happy baby that there would have to be pay-back at some point - little did I know what this pay-back would involve! At the best he screams and throws himself on the floor to get what he wants at the worst he bites his way to what he wants (so far only Patrick and me). Even nursery have commented on the change, he has been stealing toys from other babies. I'm really worried that he's turning into 'that child' the one everyone avoids and doesn't get invited to parties. I seem to remember Patrick going through this too - and he's just got a party invite so all isn't lost!

We've had quite a lot of snow this week - school was shut on Tuesday (the decision was made the night before even though the roads were completely clear in the morning - it was the only school in the area to close) and on Thursday. I'm pretty sure that the head teacher loves sledging! As much as I love the company of my daughter - I wish it could just snow on Mondays and Fridays so that I don't have to farm her out.

Thought of the week - "When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels." ~ Anonymous. Note to self - I must make time to make snow angels.

Children are funny weird.

My children are very strange, they have been playing a cowboy game this week, where they call themselves William & Kate. Nice names you may think but William is the cowgirl and Kate the cowboy. I think they may have been teased on the ranch.

Patrick is very pleased with himself and has been dieing to go to bed - he has just got a Cars bed tent (one that fits over the top of his bed). He got it as a reward for sleeping in his own bed since boxing day. The year prior to this he shared a bed with Anya after he got scared of the fireworks on bonfire night. To begin with she didn't mind but as time went on she had a bit of a moan - we began to worry that she might be bringing a boyfriend home (obviously when she's about 30 or so) and have to ask her brother to move over!

At the weekend we visited Granny and Grandad on their wedding anniversary. We saw all the various Aunties and GG, the kids were thoroughly spoilt and very happy. We went out for lunch and then for an ice-cream at Winstones icecream factory. It is impossible to visit Granny without visiting the common, even when it's subzero!

Quote of the week - "Dinosaurs live in a faraway land, but can the Flyadactyls fly to our house?" - Patrick. Monsters are playing on his mind a lot!
