Rules for the cat 

Every now and again I have to remind myself that cats simple don’t follow rules.



Lazy Saturday 

Today was such a lovely relaxing Saturday!! There was no alarm clock to wake up to, no need to get out of pyjamas actually!! It’s not often we get to just enjoy being at home, and although the children couldn’t tear themselves away from the video games and electronics which are such a big part of our lives these days, at least they were hanging out  together!!! 




This is the ransom note prepared by the boys (my Harry and his two friends ) for Madelyn his twin sister and her friend. I love that the boys were so excited about their mischief and it was really sweet to see the girls play along. 

I have had such a great day today pottering around the house while the kids have fun with their friends. There were 6 kids in total and at times the noise level was a bit overwhelming but it was so nice to just be able to observe them all interacting. These children have been friends all through primary school and although this year they have each gone their separate ways to different high schools they have kept in touch and I am happy to say are as close as ever.

Married at first sight 

Ok I’m watching a show on tv that a friend of mine recommended and I’m finding it really weird!! The show is titled “Married at first sight” and in this show 5 couples get married without knowing or even having seen each other before and have to live together like husband and wife for I’m not sure how many weeks before deciding if they want to stay married or terminate the relationship.
Sounds weird doesn’t it? It is one of those reality tv shows, a social experiment, and at times it can be quite confronting.
I’m not sure how I feel about the show to be honest, I’m intrigued yes and a bit surprised. Marriage is hard enough when you know and love the other person, imagine how much harder it would be with a complete stranger someone you don’t even know have never seen before and may not even like?

What I can’t understand or am struggling to understand, is why on earth someone would want to participate in something like this and put themselves though it all?
