Brit in Bosnia / Fraught Mummy said...

You caught me at a weak moment. I could do some work. Or I could listen to Desert Island Discs and do this instead and con myself that I am being constructive. Hmmmm. Which shall it be. Oh sod it, I have no will power.

Thanks, its always nice to be tagged. And I am with you every step of the way when you say you most want to visit your bed.

I love your answers - I especially like the Spud using the toilet without asking for chocolate - yes I'm looking forward to that one too!!! Poor little thing with the chickenpox - are you still coming to the meet-up on Sunday?? Hope so x

DJ Kirkby said...

Oooh thanks. I will do this one lazy Sunday. x

Sparx said...

Rosie - brave one, I'll come over and check it out!

Brit - you too, coming to check it out!

Maternal Tales - thanks; and yes I'm coming but without my little ray of sunshine sadly.

DJ - yay!
