Help!

Okay, so I'm back from Kerry almost a week now, but I've got to return there tomorrow to edit Kairos. In the meantime, my house looks like a disaster zone - the kitchen that I thought would be a simple in-and-out job has turned into an epic saga, with tiling and wood and glass and paint everywhere. No washing done in almost a week, the kids definitely smell, and don't mention cookers... or fridges, or dishwashers.

These things are sent to try us, right?

I need another holiday to get over all this!

And I presume that you are on school holidays now - just to top the cake!

Funny how holidays generate the need for further holidays, isn't it... ;-)
Good luck with the edit - hope it goes well!

Aw the kids will love being a little mucky I'm sure. I hope everything gets sorted out and you can enough the kitchen and the kids.

Hello there!
Your kitchen will soon be sorted...
Your kids can soon be clean...
Enjoy them in this hereandnow, coz suddenly, in fact, before you know it ( HONESTLY!) they're t'other side of The World or thriving in a Big City or Having Big Adventures you only hear about long, long after...!)
and THEN, the house stays clean and the house stays tidy and the fridge stays organized ( huh, marginally..) for days on end...
ENJOY!

I know what Jan is saying - but sanitation is sometimes necessary for one's sanity. Orderly surroundings = orderly mind/maximum creativity?

You are glue! Sounds like without you there to hold them down, things definitely go up in every direction!

Hope your travels are safe and wonderful.

Lovely to hear all your warm wishes! I'm getting there now, with the kitchen in a state of near completion... but I have some great news from Kerry!
