Hospital is treating me well. The hospital apparently has baby naming books. But as you can see by looking at the my blog we still have that someone going for grassy. maybe we can compromise. I think that that's the best way in life!

Compromising is hard with baby names! I see you’ve chosen Meadow- I think that’s lovely, really pretty!

Hi there... So if I were to happen to draw a picture of you, Miss Short... Would you like to see it?

Ooh yes please, I’m always interested in seeing how people view me (Yeah, pretty vain for someone who spends most of her life covered in sweat and mud…)

Hey holly Foaly and I need help on deciding names for the baby. which all happened so fast. Im still in the hospital. can you think of any good names for a girl. everything I choose is downed by foaly. who wants to name her grassy. but if you know me I don't believe in naming children after snacks.

Hey Caballine! Hope hospital is treating you well- I know first hand how grim it can be when things go wrong with your baby!! I’m glad you both seem to be doing better, though!

As for names…I’m not sure! Trubs and I trawled the web to find good names for our kids! Just keep searching, that’s what I’d suggest. And tell Foaly to stop being so food-orientated, the greedy thing!

Jasper’s first proper word was his sister’s name. I think I just died of cute.

Okay, Indigo’s response was to slap him for pronouncing it slightly wrong but still, it was a good moment!

Tell me about it…Hey Trubs, remember when I got the dates of the Warlock Uprising wrong? That was a fun shuttle journey…

ok so update. Foaly and I are having another child. At this point whether it is a boy or girl we do not know. wish  me luck.

Oh my gods Caballine, congratulations! This is so exciting! Here’s hoping Foaly makes it to the birth this time, and isn’t stuck helping me on an End-of-the-World mission like last time!

Hi holly why can't you have pets?

Well I can- as Little Artemis proves:

But in general fairies don’t approve of keeping animals for their own amusement. I got plenty of moaning for keeping Little Artemis but it was an emergency- he was homeless and ownerless (partly thanks to me so I owe him a good home). Also it’s tricky to keep animals healthy and happy down here- Little Artemis has to take supplements with his food to keep him well, and it wouldn’t be something everybody could do, it just wouldn’t be manageable.

Hope that answers your question!

Thanks Caballine!

It’s okay for you- I still manage to see you off tumblr! It’s more for my followers who don’t have real life access to me, the poor dears ;)

Coffee soon please- that really child-friendly place was immense, we need to go again.

Oh my gods I’m sorry I haven’t been online in months- there’s not even an exciting reason as to why. Two little kids and an important job with a husband who barely has any time to breathe let alone give his wife some time to herself has meant that this blog has fallen a little by the wayside!

But summer has arrived now and I’ve taken a month off to mysef and my family from going completely mad! So I should be a bit more regular on here now.

And, as a reward for your patience, have a picture of the kidlets at the beach. This isn’t Haven Waters but a beach near Fowl Manor which we went to last weekend with Uncle Artemis while Ireland was having a heat wave. Was such a lovely day, even when Artemis took Jasper rockpooling and then forgot to bring him back because he was so excited by some specimen he had found…

Hey Holly! It's Caballine. How are you doing?
