Giveaway results and a little garden produce...


I’m coming to the conclusion that full-time working mums don’t blog – how can anyone find the time?  Work is fun but really busy, and taking the time to relax with the boys in the evenings, with Ben and the boys at the weekend, and to keep the house tidy-ish (lol, lol, lol) means that blogging is sadly very secondary at the moment.
 

I did manage to meet, and even work with, a blogger a few weeks ago – Dormouse came to our area for a weekend course, and spent the Sunday night (and Monday morning, in class) with me! It was a flying visit but it was lovely to meet her in person and to be able to help out with accommodation and transport, and, in return, be helped with some interesting role plays in class!

So now I’m really happy to take some time to announce the winner of my magazine giveaway – chosen randomly by Son 1, the winner is Healing Woman, who left a really positive message of encouragement (not the only one of course - it's so nice to find your comments and even to read your posts inspired by my own). So, Healing Woman, congratulations and please send me your address by email ASAP, so that I can post it to you while it’s still in date!

I’ve prepared several other posts in a spare moment (waiting for hours with Son 2 at the doctor’s, unfortunately…) and I’m going to schedule them for you, because I have so much to share, even though there’s little time to share it. So please do keep reading, and if you have time and thoughts, please do leave a comment. I read your blogs on my phone, which doesn’t allow me to comment, but I am keeping up to date with you in my limited kind of way…

Do hope your son is all right.
It is so nice to meet other bloggers isn't it? It seems ages since you were in Brittany!

How wonderful that you met Dormouse and congratulations to Healing Woman as well.

Sorry to hear you have been spending more time at hospital with DS2 - not good news and I hope that all these visits will be well and truly over and done with soon.

Sorry to hear son 2 is needing hospital visits and do hope all will be well for him. I don't know how working mothers manage to get any time to do anything they want to do but rest assure your day will come! Meanwhile pop in when you can.

Hi, thanks for all your well-wishes for Son 2! I can reassure you that he's doing OK - he broke his tailbone a month ago and is on the mend, but had some strange, apparantly unrelated pains today, which the doctor thinks are probably the result of him getting a bit better and slightly more active, in the way that only 14-year-old boys can be... so nothing alarming, just a warning to continue taking it easy!

Unfortunately, all the doctor appointments comes with the territory-we mom's are really unsung heros but we do everything we do out of love. I hope your son fares well and I'm sure he appreciates the great mom that you are.

I am thrilled to have won your magazine contest. Thank you so much for your generosity. I love reading your posts.

I understand where you're coming from. Blogging plus full time job and kids can be quite overwhelming. Good to see your updates when you can. Hope your son gets better soon.
