Yes...this is ALL about me, and mine. Marvellously self indulgent, feel free to tell me how splendid I am, leave comments, nice ones please, I have little kids and teenagers who can do the rude stuff. I am a grandma, to the glorious Joshua, I'm allowed to look frazzled and weary, I earned it. The older I get, the more I see that hanging on and being patient is worth it! They ( whoever 'they' are) are so right when they say you never know what is around the corner, it isn't always an articulated truck! It is vital to make the time for making memories, friends are the greatest treasure, I love mine. I am rich!

Shout out.

This week my blog has had 313 visits.
196 from the United States.
52 from Canada.
50 from the UK.
6 from Australia.
2 from Hungary.
Ireland, Spain, Barbados, Cyrpus, Turkey, The Netherlands, Ghana and Sweden popped in and out again.
55% of these visits were new people .... I wonder who, where what their stories are.
Please tell me who you are and where you live ( even you die hards who come here all the time, I love you even though you are old and not new....not your actual address of course, I am so one of those people that would turn up and say you invited me, I might stay a while, you know all about me, it'd be like have a friend to stay, of course I would insist you tell me every detail of your life, seems only fair!) If you have a blog I want to be able to get to know you too.
Hello! Who are you? Shout out for me, please.

o.k., o.k. I am Michelle. I live in Princeton, NJ with my husband and 4 kids. I do not have a blog because I could never write as well or be as funny as you are. I need to start one if only to better preserve our family memories...You are awesome by the way :-)

Hi Helen
- I am a lurker from Western Australia and I jump in and out of your blog quite regularly. I am a mum of three boisterous boys - 13yrs, 11 yrs and 7 mths and married to my wonderful dh.
You write so well and your life is interesting (does anyone think that their own life is 'interesting' or is that something that comes from the voyeristic perspective?) and I can relate to so much that you go thru that I just have to check in to see how you're doing!
I don't have a blog myself, not from lack of wanting to but from lack of talent for writing!
What I love best about your blog is that you never give up! Go Helen!

Forgot to say in my comment before that on a recent holiday to the UK I stayed somewhere near to you. We spent a week in a converted barn just out of Tavistock. I had the most wonderful time and the countryside is just beautiful. I also fed those same ponies that were once in your banner photo - they are a bit pushy aren't they!

Not a lurker... you know me, but I am surely responsible for a number of your blog hits and sending lots of love with them. :O)

I'm Lisa, from the US - Rhode Island to be specific. I followed you here from BZ - was actually in your ddc when you were pg with Isaac, but sadly m/c that baby. On a happier note, I have 5 kiddos - 4 boys ages 18-7 and 1 lovely girl age 17. You make me laugh - and you have made me cry. I always look forward to a new post from you!

Clara here from Tennessee in the good ole USA. I'm still here and read your posts almost every day. Remember I read your blog in its entirety. You are like part of the family. I don't comment as much as I once did, because my time is limited on the computer. It seems every time I sit down here, my DH can sense it and there is always something he needs or just wants me to be in the same room with him. I'm his only caregiver. I hope you understand. I love you and I love reading about the boys and what a wonderful husband you have. You are an amazing woman.
