It starts

I was woken by wailing:
'I need Mummy'(Matthew the loudest scream in the East!), and so it continued despite Mr T's best efforts so after 2 minutes I went downstairs to sort out my son, he wanted a Mummy cuddle, nothing more, bless! That seemed to set the trend for the rest of the day so far.
'I don't want to go to school' Heather announced.
'Why not?'
'Because it's a long time' she says hugging me, nothing like a bit of emotional blackmail. Still she went and was happy enough other than having to sit on a table of boys which is apparently 'smelly', the worst complaint my four year old makes.
As for Lucy, poor love is full of cold and not really understanding what a sneeze is, the look of surprise on her face every time it happens is quite amusing.
My new course books arrived today, advanced creative writing - hoping it does help me advance, and hopefully gain a deal at some point, another rejection plopped through the door over the weekend so when I get around to it I will be recycling that to elsewhere!

There are times that only "Mummy" will do. In my case it's all the time! Enjoyed reading your blog by the way.

a mummy cuddle brings back memories... I find myself wishing my children were still little.

My little girl has devised a way to make sure she keeps the men in her life wrapped around her little finger. She whispers to grandad: "you've got the best hugs and kisses, grandad" but then I heard her saying the exact same thing to her daddy! So calculating and she's only 3!

Tara, sounds like she has the right idea already LOL!
Adventure mother glad you enjoyed it and as much as I moan it is lovely to be wanted.
Leigh, I will miss it when cuddles are no longer the status quo, hoping I have a few years yet.
