1. Which character in which book by which author said: “Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure nineteen six, result happiness. Annual income twenty pounds, annual expenditure twenty pound ought and six, result misery. ?

2. What song in which musical starts:

“Dear God, you made many, many poor people.
I realize, of course, that it’s no shame to be poor.
But it’s no great honor either!
So, what would have been so terrible if I had a small fortune?”

3. It’s too easy in French, preventivo in Italian, presuepuesto in Spanish and putea in Maori, what is it in English?

J Bloggs wins an electronic jelly sponge with five right (though I don’t agree with the universal allowance).

Grant got four (would have been five if you’d stopped at budget for #3.

What kind of mother are you?

May 10, 2015

What kind of mother are you?

You are a natural mother!

You are a very loving, nurturing, emotional and intuitive person. You truly care about the people in your life, and you will do anything to make them happy, especially when it comes to your family.
From the very first moment your baby came into this world and your life, you felt an endless amount of love. You will always be there for your child with a helping hand, a listening ear and many words of wisdom. You truly are an amazing mother, and every child should be lucky to have you.

There’s being there and there’s being the loving, kind, patient . . .  parent to which we aspire but don’t always attain.
