Busy, busy, busy!

Hello everyone!

Sorry I haven't been blogging in a while. Things have been so busy recently. I don't know if I can even remember what I've been doing because it's pretty much just been the normal day-to-day stuff: looking after the kids, schooling the kids, cleaning, cooking, washing clothes etc etc! Sigh! My good friend Martha is coming over to visit tomorrow with her husband, however, and she really wants to cook dinner so I won't be saying no! I think I have most things in order around the house now!

Anyway, my main reason for blogging today was for something else. On Saturday, my eldest son went to play in a dear friend Jack's house. In the afternoon Jack's mom rang me to ask if it would be ok for the two boys to go to visit Jacks cousin who lives nearby. I have never met this cousin but I trust Jacks Mom and agreed to it. To cut a long story short, my son came home that evening asking me I had ever wondered if I was gay?! Obviously I was horrified by this question so I asked him why he was wondering such things. He said that Jack's cousin's father had a discussion with all of them while they were in the house and told them that now (ie. between 10 and 14 years of age) is the time to consider whether you are straight or gay and that if you think you may be gay that you should explore it further!! What was this man thinking?!!

I have discussed the issue with my husband and we have agreed to call over to this father at the weekend to let him know how angry we feel about the situation. Jack's mom was also horrified and she will be calling over with us. We have since sat our older children down and discussed with them that being gay is not the Lords way and that as long as they follow the path that the Lord has set out for them, then they will find eternal happiness. I will let you know how the meeting at the weekend goes!

I ask Him to give me the strength to deal with problems that arise for parents!

Fun with lipstick!

I don't know how they do it, but I leave the room for literally two minutes and K has managed to find a lipstick I didn't know I still had! And the evidence of how much fun she had with it was all over her face when I came back into the room! It did turn out to be an expensive lipstick I got as a present a few years ago but all I could do was laugh when I saw this cute little face!!

We had a very lovely Christmas. We had dinner in our own home and then went to visit both my parents and my DH's parents the next day. My DH just went back to work on Monday so things are finally back into a routine again. I've spent the last few days steam cleaning all our carpets using a steam cleaner that we've hired for the week. Our next project is to repaint our living room. At the moment it's a rather dull cream colour. I'm very fond of using lots of colour in my rooms so would like to find a more exciting colour for the living room.
It's great to be back blogging in the new year. Hope 2008 finds you all well!
