Well Multi-Tasking that's what we women do so well!!!!

So my daughters in law tell me.

Here is a chap also hard at work and managing to look after the children as well

Just a fun image for what I hope is the start of a beautiful weekend for you all. Last night was idyllic so warm and sunny, I sat outside all evening listening to the blackbirds singing.

Such a peaceful scene - those two little ones in the background really make this image.

I hate these birds that sing Mavis.Their repertoire is so limited it sounds the same over and over again.It is like that din at the World Cup with these stupid plastic trumpets.Just one continuous noise.I disagree about the guy here being ''hard'' at work.In my 40 odd years of work,I wished I had a job where I could sit on my backside all day.I was on the go constantly all night as I worked nightshift.I suppose it could be classed as a dangerous job however.I bet he suffers dreadful pain from his piles !! Looks like he is a table maker as I reckon it is table legs here.Another waste of time.Who goes to a dinner party and spends the time underneath the table looking at the quality of the legs ?

I wouldn't like him looking after my children with a big knife in his hand.
A good and different image Mavis.

As you say looks idyllic, but with that big knife,could I hear the music from pshyco? I must have a warped mind. Ann

The past and future in the same image - well seen and well taken image. The past in the shadow, not so obvious as the bright future.
Well done!
