    Funny Guy
    Saturday, July 30, 2005
    Well i have a very funny man on my hands! Yesterday all he did was laugh for some reason!!?? He walked everywhere yesterday and just kept giggling, if i'd have known better i would have thought he'd been taking laughing gas!
    The Speech Therapist came yesterday. She's pleased with how he's doing but we really need to work on volume as well as getting him to eat more savoury food. Along with that he'll only really eat with distractions, i.e having the TV on but she said if he needs it he needs it.

    Well, while i have them fresh in my mind i better tell you about a few of the things Corey has been doing lately.
    now most babies do these these things in their firsy year but Corey being Corey decided he wanted to wait!
    So we have started pointing at last, and he looks so cute when he does it. He's also started to clap and will do it on command. It's weird how such little things can make you so happy!
    Also he's a bit of a cupboard addict. We are still in the process of fitting cupboard and drawer locks and he insists on opening them all the time!! You have to have eyes in the back of your head. Another favourite pastime is taking every single DVD player out of the rack and throwing them on the floor. he has got the knack for opening the cases too and likes to take the disks out! Oh the joys of Motherhood!!

    Well today has been pretty bad. It started just after midnight when Corey woke up and then he continued to cry on and off for about 5 hrs until i eventually got up with him. The only thing i can put it down too is teething. He doesn't have a temp or anything so just don't know. Lets hope tonight is better. He been really grumpy all day but that could be because he's had not sleep. I out him in his cot at lunchtime and he had a good nap, about 1 1/2 hrs i think, which must have meant he was tired because he normally only naps for about 15 mins.
    Jacob, my friend Shelley's little boy is two yrs old today! Happy birthday big guy! You deserve to have lots of fun! Wakka Wakka
    Am off to read some of Harry Potter now and then off to bed!

    When will this end????
    Friday, July 22, 2005
    More bombs alerts in London and now people being shot! When is all this going to end??

    Yesterday there were apparently 4 bombs found. 3 on the tube and one on a bus. Luckily the detonators went off but the bombs didn't. Only one person was hurt and only minor injuries. This morning there are now reports of a suspected suicide bomber being shot at Stockwell tube station.
    Makes you wonder what sort of world we're living in!

    Well i am waiting for my baby to come home. They left Pickering this morning at about 830 so should be hme soon. I've missed them although it has been nice to have some time alone, not that i've done alot other than eat too much!

    It is far too hot today! We brits are never happy you know. It's too hot, it's too cold, it's too dry, it's too wet, we can always find something to moan about and i'm no exception! Today it was 34c in my garden. I would imagine it was the same yesterday because i couldnt cope then either! We've had BBQ's Sat & Sun because it was too hot to cook indoors and yesterday we got the paddling pool out which was nice. Corey hadn't been in it before so we wondered what his reaction would be but he loved it! We didn't put an awful lot of water in or we'd be filling it for days but it was nice to cool off in there. Here are a few pics for ya!

    London Terror Attacks
    Thursday, July 07, 2005

    Very, very sad news today!

    Two people have been killed and scores have been injured after three blasts on the Underground network and another on a double-decker bus in London.
    UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said it was "reasonably clear" there had been a series of terrorist attacks.

    He said it was "particularly barbaric" that it was timed to coincide with the G8 summit. He is returning to London.

    An Islamist website has posted a statement - purportedly from al-Qaeda - claiming it was behind the attacks.

    Home Secretary Charles Clarke said blasts occurred between Aldgate East and Liverpool Street tube stations; between Russell Square and King's Cross tube stations; at Edgware Road tube station; and on a bus at Tavistock Square.

    The Queen said she was "deeply shocked" and sent her sympathy to those affected.

    Paul Woodrow of the London Ambulance Service is in Russell Square near the bus which exploded.

    "At King's Cross station there is a rescue operation in the tunnel down on the line," he said.

    "Although we cannot confirm casualties - it is too early - we are dealing with large numbers of casualties, and we believe there are a number of casualties."

    London's police chief Sir Ian Blair said there had been "many casualties" but it was too early to give a precise figure.

    More than 182 casualties and and one of the dead were taken to the Royal London Hospital in Whitechapel but it said that 123 people had since been released.

    And St Mary's Hospital said it was dealing with 26 injured people, including four with critical injuries and eight in a serious condition.

    Sir Ian urged people to stay where they were and not to call emergency services unless it was a life-threatening situation.

    He reassured the public that an emergency plan was in place and the situation was "steadily coming under control".

    London Mayor Ken Livingstone, speaking from Singapore before flying back to the UK, said Londoners would not be divided by a "cowardly attack."

    He said it was an "indiscriminate" attempt at slaughter with no consideration for age or religion.
    All London Underground services have been suspended indefinitely and bus services in central London (Zone One) have been halted.

    Early reports had suggested a power surge could be to blame for explosions on the Underground but this was later discounted.

    Describing the bus blast in Tavistock Square, eyewitness Belinda Seabrook said she saw an explosion rip through the bus.

    "I was on the bus in front and heard an incredible bang, I turned round and half the double-decker bus was in the air," she said.

    She said the bus was travelling from Euston to Russell Square and had been "packed" with people turned away from Tube stops.

    "It was a massive explosion and there were papers and half a bus flying through the air, I think it was the number 205," she said.

    "There must be a lot of people dead as all the buses were packed, they had been turning people away from the Tube stops."

    One caller to BBC Five said his friend had seen "the bus ripped open like a can of sardines and bodies everywhere".

    Loyita Worley, who works for a City law firm, said she was on the underground train when an explosion took place in the next carriage, while it was in a tunnel.

    The 49-year-old said: "All the lights went out and the train came to an immediate halt. There was smoke everywhere and everyone was coughing and choking, but remained calm. We couldn't open the doors."

    Once the doors were opened they were taken along to Liverpool Street station.

    She said the carriage where an explosion happened was "black on the inside" and she saw people who appeared to have their clothes blown off.

    She saw bodies lying inside the carriage.

    Well i really hope those wax crayons we bought Corey are non toxic. Why do you ask? Well because my son, who is orally defensive has decided they are good to eat!!!Shock 4

    I got an email from the owener of the website Scrapcanvas yesterday, it's where i bought the blank canvas to make the present i did for Fathers Day. Well i won Canvas of the month! I'm very honoured!Woohoo

    A few weeks ago we bought some Baby Einstein cards for Corey. They have random pictures on them and numbers and we have been teaching him with them eveyday. We say the word then make a sound and ask him to find the card amongst some others. So far he can identify 8! Ducks, Dogs, Cows, Cars, House, Food, Boat & Chicken. He loves them!

    I also forgot to mention that Corey has done quite a bit of standing on his own and taking steps on his own today so i'm just hoping that he has the courage to take off next week!

    Well it's been a strange sort of week with not a huge amount happening. Haven't really been anyway and so i've been feeling even more depressed than usual. I've been really worried about how low i am and so has DH. So yesterday i went and bought some St John's Wort. It's supposed to be the homeopathic thing to take for depression and i am now taking it 3 times a day so i hope it will make a difference! Corey is so clingy at the moment and i think that is getting me down too along with the dreaded feeding. He hasn't been doing too bad by his standards but if we try to feed him without the TV on like the Speech Therapist wants them he will hardly eat anything :( He hasn't done to bad today but we gave in and turned the TV on. He loves yoghurts at the moment. I've been giving him one for breakfast as he doesn't like many breakfasty things and he loves it. I bought some that were made with whole milk so full of calories! Also at lunch he has mashed potatoes with cheese and cream in them but we have tried them before and he isn't really impressed and he wasn't that bothered today either. Anyway we plod on.
    Had some good news on Friday. Got the latest issue of Scrapbook Inspirations and they had published 2 of my layouts. Plus there was a competition recently on the scrapbooking forum i'm a member of - UKScrappers and i came runner up and have won a prize! Don't know what it will be as it's a suprise so just have to wait for it to be delivered. We had to design a layout around the number 30 to celebrate one of the shops who had been in business for 30 yrs. So as they opened in 1975 i did 30 facts about 1975. Will post a pic later but the upload image thingy isnt working.
    Today DH and Corey went walking and i did some scrapping then sat in the garden for a few hrs as it was nice and sunny. I also burnt myself a little on my chest and my arms have gone a nice golden colour. We don't expect the sun to be strong enough to burn in the UK as we hardly ever get any lol!

    So yesterday was Live8. Anyone who is anyone will know what i am talking about. If you don't then here is a little bit about it.

    Every single day, 30,000 children die, needlessly, of extreme poverty.

    On July 6th, we finally have the opportunity to stop that shameful statistic.

    8 world leaders, gathered in Scotland for the G8 summit, will be presented with a workable plan to double aid, drop the debt and make the trade laws fair. If these 8 men agree, then we will become the generation that made poverty history.

    But they'll only do it if enough people tell them to.

    That's why we're staging LIVE 8. 10 concerts, 100 artists, a million spectators, 2 billion viewers, and 1 message... To get those 8 men, in that 1 room, to stop 30,000 children dying every single day of extreme poverty.

    We don't want your money - we want you!

    Please go and sign the petition if you haven't already! - Sign the Live8
