I've spent the last couple of weeks being 'mom' and homemaker (if unpacking numerous moving boxes counts as making-home). its been really rather lovely to be cooped up in our new home up to my elbows in scrunched up newspaper and things I'd forgotten I owned, with the nipper circling my ankles and screeching. and thanks to a screw up by virgin no internet to remind me of reality. so i've been completely immersed. but. It's back to virtual family and other people's family on monday.....still, a good xmas break reminds you what it's all for...and no apologies for the lack of posts. i've been recharging for 2009 (even if i have been ill for most of my time off!).
