This is how Oliver (son, not husband) spent his Sunday evening. Well done Oliver!!! (I just don't have the patience)

He was doing this whilst I read to the family.

This is the book that we are reading. All life has stopped. We had snacks when we got home from church so that we wouldn't have to take long eating or cleaning up afterwards. House is in chaos. But we can't stop reading. I catch the kids trying to read on - and they catch me. We have all now given a solemn promise that we will be patient and only read together!! But it is killing us all - because life has a way of moving on, and all the Lawals want to do right now is read read read.

I highly recommend this book to everyone and anyone. If you like Fantasy, then no matter what your age - this is the book for you. I am 39 and my youngest child is 7 and we are all engrossed.

Why dad travels

I don't know if from previous entries I have made - some of you have wondered why my husband travels so much. Well perhaps this explains it.

Lessons of Life from a Dog

I threw a Bridal Shower tonight for a friend of mine - and at around 9.55 pm as we were just cleaning up , and people were leaving - I let my little dog Molly out for her usually 'call of nature'. Everyone left and I decided to send photo's of the evening to those who had been at the party. At around 10.35 pm I decided it was time to go to bed, so I called for Molly to go for one last 'wee' before bed. I couldn't find her. Then I remembered I had never actually let her in after the first one. I went to the back door and there she was waiting patiently for me. She came in as if I were the best person in the world. If my husband had locked me out and forgotten about me - I wouldn't have spoken to him for a month. But my dog comes in with nothing but gratitude. Eeeh, I've still got a long way to go. Even my dog's more righteous!

Whilst in my front yard - I came upon Peter. My foot and he were about to meet intimately. Luckily I spotted him at the last minute. He was so cute, I had to keep him just long enough for my kids to meet him, name him, and ask incessantly if we could keep him.

Here we are setting him free.
