Going to my mammies

Lucky lucky me. Not only did I have the sense to retrain as a teacher and get the most fab job in the world, they also give me loads of money and I get lots of holidays. Only some of that last sentence is true.

The beautiful children stopped school for a 2 week Easter break yesterday and as is my wont I will drive up to Scotland for a visit to my parents, sister and friends.

Had the fantastic news that my sister is having a baby in November and all seems to be well ( unfortunately this hasn't always been the case) so I am really thrilled as I hope to move home next year and will be able to see this wee one regularly, her other 2 were born after I moved to England. As it's unlikely I will have any more of my own it will be lovely to spoil this one and I'm sure my sister will appreciate the babysitting !

Always a bit strange to stay in your childhood home as an adult. I tend to revert back to my teenage grumpy self, arguing over the telly and moaning that there are no good biscuits. It's harder now as my parents have 5 tv sets, I don't even begin to understand why as there are only 2 of them. Each tv has a dvd player and freeview on it as well !!! Some of them are the fancy plasma screen ones that hang on your wall like a picture. They obviously waited till my sister and I had left home before getting what they wanted, scared to make it too nice in case we never left. They must now be really scared that I'll move back in with the beautiful children in tow, they have way more gadgets than us. I must say it really is my dad that buys all this kind of stuff. Last time I visited he gave me a spare dvd player and a freeview box, who has spare dvd players ?( men that's who) Again I sound like a man hater, which is unfair as I like at least 2.

So a little break for me, I will see you in the next fortnight, I know some of you are away but I hope that I can catch up with the ones who are around, I will be in the Mother Country until the 20th or thereabouts. Have a great Easter and love to you all.xxx

You know Gwen, I still have dreams about my childhood home and often wonder who lives in it now. Before we moved me and my twin and I left little notes under the floor boards asking the next tenants to look after the place for us. We also left a copy of 'Jackie' too!

I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay back home. And you never know - you might get a spare plasma screen telly, too?!

I've got my crash helmet and Extra Strong Solpadeine on standby for the duration of Easter hols. Bet I need them too!!
