LOL Thanks! My DS was awake most of Friday night with gastro and then last night my DD was restless. It's been a long weekend wink.gif
Right now I am using the TV as a babysitter for DS (bad mummy), DD is napping and I am trying to stay awake while attempting to finish a dance flyer (DH is working on sunday - boo!). As you can see I am doing more wasting time, than actual work... wink.gif

I miss the sound of rain on tin. I love that sound.

Oh, and I normally love the sound too, but not when it sounds like a freight train running over you!

Or maybe a heard of drunken elephants performing Riverdance?
