From ski to knee in three easy steps

Feeling better, I went to the ski club on Monday for lessons; I forgot how much I loved it and felt fine afterwards. Come Tuesday, I couldn't walk, missed a step what with the jelly leg syndrome I appeared to be experiencing and hurt my bleedin' knee. I missed yoga and lunch with Ann but remained philosophical; I had lots of stuff to do within the house so I'd catch up with that instead.

The phone rang: could you come collect Kelly from school please as she is ill. Will this never end?

I gave up, lay on the couch with her and watched re-runs of Friends and the Gilmore Girls.

I did make bread and roasted peppers for tea...


...apart from that, no news, so some old photies for your perusal instead...

That's Fraser, swinging his kilt!

Where does the time go?

Where does the time go indeed, what lovely children, and my guilty secret is that I roast peppers in the microwave (they turn out very well).

Hi Helen - Thanks for stopping by my blog! Oh my gosh, you live in Scotland - wow. That's my next international place to visit... I'm so excited, but it won't be for awhile until the twins get a little older.

Loved seeing the side-by-side photos of your kids all grown up. It must have felt like the blink of an eye for you. Hope your daughter feels better.
