Hurrah for Lá Fhéile Bhríde

Spring is here! I see daylight every morning before lunchtime and everything. There are things growing in the garden and making pretty colours. Days are getting longer.

Of course, the world is full of snot and upset tummies, but that's my job, so that's ok. And I have arranged some semi-regular time off; a friend will babysit the kids in the house while I get out for two hours a week or so. The first one was a bit of a flop as I spent the time feeling like everyone was looking at me going YOU'RE SO LAZY YOU LAYABOUT WHY ARE YOU NOT WORKING, which, you know, is totally what I think when I see other people in town, oh wait.

We have a new food mixer. I dunno why it's called a food mixer, it's clearly a cake mixer. It's small and neat and sits out on the countertop making cakes almost all by itself. Hurrah! I even iced a cake recently, because the cake-making part was so easy that I didn't mind.

The children weren't impressed by the first of February, except that it meant Linnea's Aquila magazine came.

We need to buy a guest bed before Rob goes away in March so that the people coming here to Ailbhesit have somewhere to sleep.

Oh man, I so want a cake mixer. Except the idea of getting another thing to sit on our counter tops is laughable. We are looking at moving house this spring/summer and a decent sized kitchen is at the top of our list of demands for the new place. (The floor space can be titchy, the counter space cannot. I create kitchen clutter.)

Yay Ailbhesitting! I must book our tickets. This visit planning has taught the Feaster a lot about the passage of time.

- When are we ever going to the Reading Gang's house?
- On the 1st of March.

So now he knows lots of month names, and how many days are in February, and that it's a leap year, and that it's 2012, and all kinds of things.

Would I be any use as a sitter?

The sitting spaces are all booked up but you could come ANYWAY just for a visit!
