Silly Old Bear
I am in the process of reading Winnie the Pooh by A A Milne.....not the Disney version but the original book. I became curious about this book by watching the Brit Com, As Time Goes By. Lionel Hardcastle is often pictured in bed at the end of the day reading Winnie the Pooh. "I am really just looking at the pictures." he says to his wife, Jean.
I have to say Mr Milne's work is charming and would be a good read aloud book for older children. I am reading a chapter each night before I go to sleep and I have to say I have laughed out loud and I have been touched by these sweet characters. It is a good way to wind down at the end of the day.
I am off to MOPs today. It is Mentor Panel day and that is always one that makes me a bit nervous. The young moms write down questions on a piece of paper and we have to answer off the cuff. I want to answer them honestly but in an encouraging manner. And let me tell you , they are not scared to ask the hard questions. Many are about family relationships and mother in laws come up quite a bit. If I could give them any advice in this area, it would be to remember that one day you will be a mother in law yourself and your view point will be quite different. I had a wonderful mother in law but I look back and realize that sometimes I was quite the pain!!
Don't forget my blog give away on Tuesday, March 1st!! This one is very cute and I am sure everyone will want to enter! Have a great day Ladies.
