It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

It's gone rather cold hasn't it?

Work is now doing that thing where you rush around a lot trying to tie up loose ends before you have some time off.

Wondering whether its worth putting up a tree this year just for the kittens to destroy it.

Kids getting excited.

Funds getting low.

Must mean Christmas is coming!

Scary days

We've had a few scary days just recently.
A couple of weeks ago my dad got taken off to hospital with chest pain. Turns out it was 'just' angina and hopefully it can be managed.
Then a couple if days ago Jen's dad appeared to be having a stroke. Again rushed off to hospital where it turned out to be 'just' a transient ischemic attack (minor stroke). Again, hopefully it can be managed.
With this and both their cancer scares its like they are trying to out do each other or something!
I guess as we all get older the reality of our parents mortality must be faced.

Not very good at this am I?

Hmm, maybe blogging isn't my thing :)
Well, I need somewhere to point my domain at and this might as well be it.

Try again...

So, where are we at in 2013?

Tilly is now in year 1 and after a little bit of a shaky start is now ploughing ahead and doing really well. She makes me very proud! I've been told I need to make the most of the next few years with her as 'Daddy's girl' as it won't be long until she wan't nothing to do with me. I'm not looking forward to that!

Daniel is now a proper little boy and not a toddler any more. His language skills come on day by day and we can now have proper conversations. I love this stage :) I guess I need to start learning what little boys want to do after only having experience of a little girl. I can't treat them the same anymore thats for sure!

Jenny is still having a rough time of things. Over 2 years on and I guess it's time to come to terms with the fact that life will never get back to how it was. It's hard to not get resentful (not with Jenny - just the situation) and spend all the time wondering 'what if'? That day has affected all our lives so much and I guess it will continue to do so forever. Such a shame...

Christmas is coming. It's great with kids and to see it through their eyes is wonderful. Trying hard to not overspend on them this year (we did last year and it was a huge mistake) and to be honest, we can't afford it anyway! I hope we all get some quality time together over the holiday though. We could do with it.

So, I'll try and keep this more up to date from now on. I doubt I will though!

New year, new blog

So, time to abandon the old blog as a bad idea and start a new one...
