    I'm doing well thank you :) 

    Aww hopefully you'll get a few nice days out! Sometimes with that age, just letting them run round a field can be the best thing ever :D

    We are here if you need to vent! I have kids in the family and will babysit when the parents need a break. They've all said it's going to be a few long weeks!

    I love to read. There are some great activities going on at many local libraries this summer. Would be worth having a look to see what is happening at yours :)
