Creative Tuesday = Moon

I've been watching a lot of the TV show "true blood" lately and the significance of a full moon is often talked about there, but more than anything I was drawn to the majesty of the wolf, I'm very much a canine person and what could be more lunar than a wolf baying at the moon.
Just a little aside, we get much amusement as our little girl misunderstood what we said when she heard us talking about the moon one night and now she calls her (moon) mooner (instead of lunar).

I'm sorry folks, I won't be able to comment on other images until later, I'm off to work in a short time. Its going to be a hard day after about 1 hour sleep overnight as I have been up with my little munchkin who has had a bad earache - all night! Poor poppet, so the moon has been our companion over the past 8 hours. Dad has taken over now, so its hi ho hi ho ... for me.

  15. Hello everyone, thank you sooo much for your well wishes for my little girl. Antibiotics, paracetamol and TLC and she is well on the mend, Im so relievedf she doesnt have the ear pain anymore, well not so as it slows her down any. I often give thanks for the age we live in and the modern medicines that we have available to us, and feel for the parents who had nothing "pharmaceutical" to give thier children. At least there were some natural remedies...
    Thanks too for the lovely comments, this feedback is inspiring, encouraging, confidence building and heart warming! xx
