Two weeks of blogging in one post!

Thought I’d kick off with some maths
if 1 litre = £1.039
and 4.56 litres = 1 gallon
then 1 gallon = £4.74 (almost $9.50)
how much does it cost to fill my tank?

Chanukah the Festival of Lights, the Festival of Dedication commences next week. We light the first candle on Tuesday evening, which is why I am going to Israel on Sunday; I simply have to be there to watch the delight and excitement on the faces of my little angels. I’m not sure who’s more excited, me or them, but those who know me well know it doesn’t take too much to get me excited 😉
If you’re interested in knowing more about the festival click here or on the red ‘Chanukah’ above. I found this great website… very easy to follow.
I contacted wordpress recently because I can’t upload videos from my son’s website www.yideoz.com directly to this blog. Apparently it’s not possible for now, so they said. Bridgitte sent me some pics and a video of the babies yesterday so for those who don’t have an aversion to other people’s grandchildren, if you’d like to see Boaz and Moriah in action click here. They are so cute…
I’ve just wrapped all their Chanukah presents (bar the Sesame Street dvd’s that haven’t arrived yet from Amazon… hmmmm) and packed them into a separate holdall which weighs an absolute ton. I haven’t even started on my stuff yet and I do not travel light; if anyone from El Al is reading this blog… it is Chanukah, please, pretty please.
Still I may not be able to embed from Jon’s website, but I can from youtube… here’s some Adam Sandler with his classic Chanukah song.
and here are my precious babies
… and for the V-Vixens …
particularly since most of you are not into little people, but into one rather big man ::sigh:: here’s another one purloined from youtube… a very very moving Bobby Bobby and, be warned, some very very gruesome scenes from Season 6 incredibly and brilliantly well matched to the lyrics and music of James Blunt for your viewing and listening pleasure… it totally blew me away!
I know, I know it doesn’t follow the general rules of a 55 Fiction or is it Flash Fiction 55 but as you may have gathered I don’t follow rules (yes Rose, I am undisciplined) and for those who do care about such things (erm, Queenie, Cathy, Pauline, Galen, Akelamalu) there just happens to be 55 words in this poem… does that count? excuse the pun 🙄
Up Up and Away
push and shove
See ya all in a couple of weeks; computer access will be very limited the first week and non-existent the second. I am taking a massive pile of books so, when I’m not hands on with the children and/or entertaining mother, I plan to catch up on a stack of reading and even hope to find some inspiration somewhere, somehow, for some words to flow.
With all my best wishes to you and yours for a great weekend (or two) Shabbat Shalom, Happy Chanukah, Chag Sameach, Happy Doughnuts and Latkes… it is a Jewish festival, of course there’s food 😆
