A number of weeks ago whilst browsing, a favourite site of mine, I came across Crowbiz22. This very kind lady was offering free ACEOs (artist trading cards) to the first few people to contact her.

Now Yummymummy has never been reknowned for her friendship with "Lady Luck", but the gods were shining down and I managed to bag myself a free ACEO!! I was chuffed and eagerly awaited its arrival.

I was not disappointed..."The Angry Badger" arrived a short while later. This small piece of art is perfectly formed and certainly made me smile enough to purchase some more of Crowbiz' work. The "Angry Badger" can be viewed on her blog.Her little shop is definitely worth a peek ,as is her blog...

So Crowbiz, if you ever read this,many thanks again for your generosity :) :)

Don't get me wrong,I enjoy earning my crust and doing something useful apart from laundry and cooking duties but today was just one of those days when I wanted,nay,I needed, a duvet day!!!

Anyone else interested in getting the Irish government to fund 3 paid "duvet-days" for all workers ?

Would make more sense than some of the nonsense they have been known to spend our hard-earned taxes on!!

Just a thought :)))

Melty Poo!!

Just one of the gems to be expected from your average 3 year old with a good dose of gastroentritis!!

"Mam, my poo is all melty"!!!

What can you say ????

A little!!!

Okay, so I am no Leonardo..but hey scummy mummy here likes to take a break from the páistí every once in a while,even if it is only to scribble a few pathetic lines on a page!!

Whilst tidying today,I came across this little "gem". A piece scrambled together during a life drawing class last year..not exactly going to sell for millions..but hey I was delighted that it at least vaguely resembled a person.She was in fact a rather lovely lady who was expecting a child at the time.

Plans for this year...anyone with ideas as to how one can solve the "scissor-hands" probelm during a 20 minute sketch ,feel free to help!! Answers on a post-card please...LOL

Back Again!

Well, haven't been around due to Easter hols...hurray!!

My return was also hindered by the week-long visit of Mr. Gastroentritis "chez-moi"!!! I am now more than willing to send him on his way to any willing new home...LOL.Don't you just hate unwanted and unwelcome guests ? :)

It has been a bit of a poop,pee and vomit fest I'm afraid folks(apologies profusely to the more squeamish of both readers ;P)

My much liquid can one small person hold ????Answers on a postcard pleeeze!!

But I digress, has been pretty rough these past few days, hence the distinct lack of posting but hopefully normal hectic, ad-hoc posting will resume anon!! :))
