    Please note all references to "The Newt" are to my newt not to any other newt.


    ps Yes I know the newt is my imaginary pet newt so is in fact a made up newt and the other newt or newts might be real newts but I don't care!!!!

    Must be tough having 27 kids and no washer though, you will have to take their clothes down to the river and beat them on a rock.

    I've had a lovely weekend too, thanks for asking.

    We've had daughter and youngest, so far, GD staying for a couple of nights. She was 2 last week, and slept here in a room by herself in a big girl bed for the very first time. She was so excited until it came to shutting the door, but she soon snuggled down. Woke just after six though, so we have had a couple of long days, with no comping, but lots of fun and love. I know which I prefer.

    Aww poor bairn, it's awful when they are poorly because the parents suffer too with no sleep and extra work, and just feeling bad for them.
    Earache is a horrible thing that you can do almost nothing for which makes you feel bad, my youngest son had gromits at about 2 year old, I have had MANY sleepless night because of ear infections
    I hope she feels better tomorrow.

    Sorry to hear those that haven't been well, I too have had a virus over the last week, which is finally shifting. Hope everyone is feeling better soon!
    No wins for me this month so far, not without trying.
    Congratulations lucinad on the moshi cards, sounds like they came at the right time
    Thank you to everyone who posts competitions and good luck to everyone who enters.

    Sounds like you have all been busy/ill/winning/not winning (delete as applicable).

    Not had a lot of time for comping, the nice weather has ment more time outside doing outside things. Also Master Bot's birthday so had to take him out and make cake.

    A win is a freebie BTW.
    Please note all references to "The Newt" are to my newt not to any other newt.


    ps Yes I know the newt is my imaginary pet newt so is in fact a made up newt and the other newt or newts might be real newts but I don't care!!!!

    You and me both mmm, my comping mojo has gone out of the window over the last week or so! Think it's partly been the lovely weather. We took Frankie for her first visit to the beach this week and she was a complete wimp with the sea but loved digging in the sand



    Sorry to hear about all the illness going around, how is everyone now?

    Had an email today to say that i've won a insinkerator instant hot and cold tap....apparently I can now throw away the kettle! I'll wait and see before acting on that I've added it as my july win but unfortunately it doesn't tick off any of my remaining letters.

    If those are the things I am thinking of they cost over 1K so that is a very good win and another you can tick off
