So where would YOU put the Freakin' Green Elf Shorts!??

After the last round of the Elf-Shorts competition with Matthias over in Switzerland, the new winner has been announced, and a worthy winner too... The utterly gorgeous PISSOFF (aka April, but I think she prefers PISSOFF.)

Check out this pic (lifted without asking and completely with no promise of any royalties ever from pissoff's blog Confessions of a Fed Up Woman on this post).

Where else on earth could you possibly wish for the Freakin' Green Elf Shorts to go?

Matthias has finally got his act together, and presented the blogosphere with a typically whacked out picture for our delectation!

I'm on the Isle of Wight right now, and I hope to post some stuff that's going on here soon. I have a few pics, but here's something I should've posted for ages.

Of course you all know about baby E, right? She's the newest Owl, and my beautiful baby daughter.

But I have two other daughters. These are those wonderful two people, who I don't see often enough, and that I love so very dearly.

This is them, the wonderful and beautiful T and C.

T and C

This was last week, on Thursday evening, when they visited for tea. Why they insist on sticking their tongues out for photographs is beyond me...

C is the airy girl. She's so loving and sweet, always thoughtful.

T is more of the rock chick. A little older, she's a strong willed, complex girl, but she loves to rock. This is T on her rocker.

Notice the tongue thing again!

They're my daughters. They are 14 and 11, and this is incredible to me. They're a wonder to me, all the time, and I love them. I have let them down terribly, and hope that I can make it up to them in time. I don't know how, I just hope that I can.

There's nothing like having a couple of independent, free spirited and strong women as your daughters. I need to write so much more about them, but here I can only be brief. I feel a huge amount of guilt for the past with my daughters, but they're an inspiration to me. An inspiration that I hope will lead to us having a better future. They just deserve it, absolutely.

EDIT - For everyone who wants to know what's on my head - see what Baby E uses it for... :D

Ok, elephants DO climb trees

After my recent post "Elephant's Don't Climb Trees" the absolutely magnificent Freddie has created this beautiful picture for me.

Elephants do climb trees

I'm blown away. This is absolutely fantastic.

Still, here's a glimpse of two of the ideas I've been playing with...

But, I just could not get satisfied with either of these attempts, or others that I've thrown out. Now, though, on to better things... with elephants climbing trees!! Thanks again Freddie, this is completely cool. :)

Hopefully, results of efforts will be posted soon after my return from jaunts away next week.
