Okay, so I have been much more diligent in making sure I at least, get a couple of good photographs of my beautiful children every week. This is not as easy as it sounds...our camera is r.u.b.b.i.s.h!!! But since Christmas has past, the dratted thing appears to be over its tantrum, and is taking some fairly decent photographs now and then. So I thought I'd post some recent ones, as well as a few thoughts!

A Pale, But Tummy-Bug-Free Dylan,

Enjoying Some Outside Play!
Well, I'll firstly tell you about poor Dylan, who has had a nasty tummy bug all last week. We were unconcerned by this initially, as there are always a few, making the rounds at this time of year. Usually if anyone in our family is unlucky enough to contract one, they last a day or two at the most. But poor Dylan wasn't so lucky...his lasted days, he was miserable! On Saturday evening, a friend on facebook recommended "Activated Charcoal" for Dylan, she said it works very fast, which was what we needed! We were staying home from church on Sunday anyway on account of not wanting to pass it to anyone else, so Brian drove around, trying to find somewhere that stocked it and who was open on a Sunday. Long story short he found some! Phew! I'm glad to report that within hours of taking the charcoal, Dylan was much better, and he is now back to full health!

KJV "How-Can-You-Even-Read-It?" Bible!
I have recently gotten lots of motivation, to begin making changes, about the harmful substances we allow into our home. After reading a book review on another blog; Brian and I began reading "Slow Death By Rubber Duck". It is quite a scary read! Although I know, that there is absolutely no way we can ever fully escape harmful chemicals, we have begun to target areas, that we think we can easily eliminate unnecessary toxins. I will be blogging plenty more about this in coming weeks! :)
Dylan Was So Tired During His Tummy Bug,
That He Fell Fast Asleep On Grandad!
This week I have been truly shocked by "certain" internet users, who repeatedly "bash" other ladies online. Often, their words do not surprise, nor shock me...but every so often I will read comments left at other blogs (Ms Anonymous back at it again!), that make my head spin. Criticising and mocking children has to be a whole new level of nastiness. I truly wish they would find a new way to vent their obvious envy...knitting perhaps?
One Of The Down Sides To A New Puppy!
Last week I was so blessed, by these posts on organic eating! A lot of what we eat is organic, home-reared or home grown anyway...but you know when you just got slack? Well I had. These posts gave me the kick-in-the-rear that I needed! Thank you Zsuzsanna! Even though our garden is not growing right now, and organic produce in Ireland is quite limited; I'm glad to say that we are back-on-track and are eating about 80-90% organic again! :)
