Here we are

It's 4ish months since we all moved in here. At first it felt like a holiday home as all the teens had finished GCSEs and we all hung about the house happily together. Now the school and college year has begun we have slipped into a pleasant routine but it seems more hectic than ever!

So I'm sitting here tonight, thanking my lucky stars. We had Big Als mates around for dinner last weekend and they commented on how all the teens seem to get on well together, and they do. How did that happen? We are truly blessed.

And the new house? Well, it's just perfect. I am starting to see it as a creative house; Tall Girl has picked up on her drawing again, as well as baking, Josie is baking, I am baking, we are all baking - well, maybe not all. And Small Sprog I hear you ask? He's taken to brewing Mead! Well, why wouldn't he?!

Sounds very cosy! Glad you're all getting on well together. Not always easy to get teenagers to gel! It's a Blessing.

You are indeed blessed! As Maggie says, it's not easy getting a houseful of teenagers to get along, related or not.

Glad you're settling in well. I hope Small Sprog isn't too much the worse for wear from his brewing activities. I gather the alcohol content of mead can be over 20 per cent....
