Silence..

Silence is golden, unless you have toddlers and then its just suspicious.Back in simpler times before the little monsters arrived silence often meant to me boredom, I didn’t like staying in I always wanted to be out doing things having fun with my friends. Not content with my own company I know look back on these days and kick myself why did I not make the most of these times what I would give for a cup of tea or even a shower in peace and quiet.

Library Visit

Seen as its daylight and I’m awake I feel now is the time everyone else should be. Mums ignoring me-best go wake Maisy to help with this one.
