Hello there! My name is Emma and I live in the Northern Ireland countryside with my family-my Loverboy husband and our 5 children (1 girl and 4 boys). Trying (desperately!) to see the funny side in the midst of our mad busy life, and then writing about it, helps me hold tight to my sanity! Hopefully once in a while it might even make you smile too...Emma

A Jubilee Joke?
Scrolling through my inbox this morning, I stumbled across an email from Pampers, excitedly telling me all about their new, limited addition, Union Jack nappies, specially to mark the Queen's Jubilee. Well, as you can imagine, I was just about to run out, there and then to stock up, when I got to thinking...Surely this particular celebratory gesture is in slightly questionable taste? And what pray, does (the royal) Herself think of it all? Was she even consulted? I mean, think about it, what our Luke produces with efficient regularity in his Pampers, is both impressively large, and eye wateringly malodorous. In a special Pampers Jubilee nappy, he would happily deposit this atop a Union Jack, once, more likely twice, a day. As an adult, this would undoubtably be viewed as a subversive political statement, yet in a 2 year old, it's a Jubilee celebration...so party on little dude! We are not amused. (Well maybe just a little bit!)
