To Facebook or Not

During the last few weeks I've not managed to get a lot of time to stitch thanks to all 3 of the kids being ill - now could they do it all together?? - No! One at a time my lot. Luckily it's only been bad colds but it meant lack of sleep for me. As I didn't want to sit stitching on a night only to find myself frogging the following night I've been sat on FB. Lets just say Farmville and Frontierville have had a hammering ;-)

DH isn't a big fan of FB but everytime he goes near the computer he has a quick look to see if my SIL has been on...yes he's found he can actually keep in touch via FB with her!

The kids absolutely adore the games. DD prefers Farmville, we have to have the sound effects on (arghh! I hate them!) and she likes to see me feed the "chickens and duckies"  At the minute she's mad on anything Christmas going onto the farm so it's find an animal in parts LOL!

The boys however prefer Frontierville, they love seeing the foxes, bears, snakes and groundhogs jump out. When I got to have a baby DS2 insisted he was the first so yep we had a little pioneer boy. Then #2 had to be DS1 and not so long ago after much nagging from the boys we finally had a girl named Diddles after DD. (Don't think the kids realise it's not real!!) DD picked her own outfit (I didn't give her a pink dress, just slap my hand!) and they argue on who's going to "whack" the foxes or snakes.

This does sound like it's all I do but I've found when the kids are up and they're bored just pop FB on and they stop arguing to watch. DS1 has asked for his own FB account but at age 6 "you've not a chance in hell" came out of my mouth ;-) 

In the last week DH caught flu and I managed to pick up an infection so laptop in bed and away I went. Must admit though can't wait until everything gets back to normal and I can get back to my stitching. It's driving me crazy sitting seeing the WIP's but not daring to stitch incase I sneeze all over them or (heaven forbit) end up frogging loads.

Ah well just off to check my crops and bash a snake or two before bed.........
