My OH's sisters boy has had problems right up to age 10 -11, she didn't want to take him to docs as didn't want to make a big deal out of it for him but then her friends 7 year old had same problem and his mum did take him to the docs. The doc said the problem was not drinking enough in the daytime and that he saw a lot of boys who were dehydrated who had the problem. If they don't drink enough their bladders don't stretch enough/grow enough to be able to hold the pee capacity all through the night. They both started making their boys drink more and have both now been dry through the night for 18 months.

I dont know, but I dont agree with giving financial aid to countries with their own nuclear arms.
How would you feel if we had a major disaster in this country and other countries wouldn't help us for the same reasons?
yay congratulations. Gorgeous colours there and so alive. I bought a little pad today to try and get back into drawing but instead did a little poem inspired by your painting - ave bunged it in poets corner if you want a peep. Thanks for the inspiration.
well done, that sounds really exciting
mmmm looks yummy
thanks for those links.
My allotment is very dry too. but I noticed that something was eating the salad veg and peas and assumed pigeons (as it seemed too dry for anything else) so I covered everything with mesh but still the eating went on.
Then I turned over all the nearby weed liner and moved a pile of wood and they were all hiding in there. It was slug central!!
but then when I walked away the birds came down and had a feast
my dad is having problems with woodlice eating his strawberries - think even the bugs are getting dehydrated this year and eating stuff maybe they wouldn't usually. Glad the birdies got to have a feast
yes the cabbage whites are everywhere!! I'm sure the kids will love it.
not heard about the snail survey littlerarebean. There are plenty of those in my garden too!!
Can't find the more kid friendly link (note to self must add sites to favourites in future) but here's the grownup link and a more international link. Think the gist is they are looking at links between snail markings and predation and how this has changed through evolution. Too bleddy dry here at mo for me to do survey all the snails are in hiding, am waiting for the rain!
ooh i love doing bug surveys! thanks for the link
there's an ongoing snail one going on at the mo, will try and find the link and post it later.
:)aaah they're so cute, love the noise of their nails scuttling through the big cardboard tube!
sorry don't have any of the books but have you tried contacting the International Byron Society to see if any of their UK members could lend you some?
Or you could put a request in the local paper in Hucknall where he is in the crypt? there's hopefully someone local who is interested in Byron and might have some of the books to sell/lend.
You could also search the notts library catalogue and see if you can borrow them inter-library
growing up there you get a bit force fed byron at school but the main thing that stuck with me was a short film that was made in the 80's/90's with locals as extras, not only did it show naked miners showering at the pit (not hucknall - pit had closed by then) but also mentioned the fact that Byron's body is perfectly preserved in the crypt and alluded to 'all of him' being perfectly preserved!:p
Ha and then wasn't there all the Byron was a vampire rumours too cos of all the blood letting for health that he was into?
sorry rambling now about the trashy side to byron's legacy!
not having any kids so being really dumb about the sizes of children I'd like to see millions of measurements that i can check with the parents
usual scowling don't take pictures of me face on!
hope you feel better soon and the nasty sick inducing antibiotics start to do their proper job instead of being mean to you
you could turn the thinking around too, if all matter etc is interelated, recycled from the same big pool of goop then whats to say humans aren't walking around with the memories of plants, animals, insects...
back to the trees though i'm sure some trees are sentient or can communicate with humans, whether this is from a memory of humans, their own spirit or because we are all from one big goop and just what is reality anyway, i'm not sure.
I met an amazing tree once (also very scary) all ancient and gnarled and jam packed full of female spirits all entwined in the bark and moulded into the moss, often think about the tree and how it proved an illusion to me, also gave me a mantra for my life and where i'll go when i'm 'gone'.
Have also seen a couple of trees 'walking' out the corner of my eye, once when pootling along on canal and tree in wood was caught out on a little jaunt - sure i embarresed the poor thing by seeing it move! another time in sequoia national park saw a giant sequoia pootling around, actually felt a bit more like that one was stalking us rather than a pootle - it reminded me of the predator film - the special effects of the see through camaflauged predator - giant tree was all shimmery and see through and bleddy following us!
i love trees even the scary stalking ones
thanks for the positive comments, i'm trying to focus on flowing lines rather than angles on my positive thinking phase, naughty thorns sneeking in tho!
Catkin I just love circular paintings - I blame that on Kit Williams. I love the way you feel drawn into the painting and the ladies eyes are so expressive. It also made me go off on thoughts of maybe every tree has a story captured inside of it, running through its length and through the roots are the history of the story.
PTM the little pip child is just so sweet and full of promise. I think your mermaid looks like she is drinking the water in an ecstatic way - maybe someone has captured her from a polluted pond and is transporting her back to the sea in a jar of seawater.
weird mutant vine - was daydreaming looking at honeysuckle buds then thinking about all the lovely blossom about but also must have been angry cos some killer thorns snook in!
i had glandular fever when i was 21 and it took a good year or so before i stopped feeling totally crap. Definately linked to exhaustion, those afternoon naps were compulsary there was no way of fighting the sleep. I'd say listen to your body, don't try and push yourself too much but also fight the temptation to wallow in sleepage - after a while i didn't feel as knackered but had got into the nap habit by then and it was a difficult one to break!
princesstigermouse I love love love your deaths head hawk moth! Made me think back to reading 'I'm the king of the castle' by susan hill back at school!
ooooh catkin those nudes are lush - on the trio of ladies - the lady on the left with the pert nipple is just gorgeous :o, amazing how you get such detail in.
i love the kind of halo/shadow around the tuning hare. She looks so chilled
Oooh some lovely work on here again, sooo inspiring and really interesting to see how the pictures connect to different people's experiences and emotions.
Lovely pages to dip into for inspiration and for wishing, oh if only I doodled more i might get better
I will try and do more doodles in future but can't promise 1 a day
i go every 9 months or so as have had problems with me teeth in the past and am also a hypochondriac so the added bonus of dentists also checking general mouth health keeps me going. I've had to resort to going private tho - I'd managed to keep an NHS dentist for donkeys years by not changing dentists from the one in my hometown even tho I had moved loads since - would coincide visiting the folks with going to the dentists! Eventually tho that practice seemed to be changing their NHS staff every visit and one of em was shite and did a real bodged filling on me that i've had to have dug out and redone 3 times now!
Most practices will chuck you off their books if you don't attend fairly regularly but the time limit seems to sometimes vary between practices.
it's just horrible and you know that they will use the results to cause more pain in future - oh looking at the pain chart this mouse isn't pulling the 'face of agony' it's only at the 'face of discomfort' lets crank up the experiment some more. :curse:
my next comment shud probably be in the lizard lounge but i often feel humans can't be native to this earth - I know animals will kill/eat other animals etc but would any other species cause so much pain to others and do it's best to destroy it's own habitat in the process?
just love the green flares!
I love mandalas!!:) Have had some written plans for mandalas in a little note book for over 2 yrs now;). I think they may stay in the book for a little while yet though... no time.
For lack of anything else to post here is a drawing from portrait class today.. not my best but hey:p
I love your style , I can't think of a better word but I love the 'squiggliness' of it
here's another mandala - i'm thinking of patterns for a henna tattoo involving bees but am enjoying the doodling so much prob won't get round to getting anything hennaed!
love the little blue flowers in the first one - and the watercolour little blue pixie playing his flute to the bluebells on your gallery
Such gorgeous creative inspirational stuff on here !
my addiction of the day is mandalas, must doodle more had forgotten how relaxing it is!
go for it, don't worry what potential employers might think if it's something you really want to do then what's the harm? Changing careers or having a wide range of interests isn't a negative thing it shows flexibility and ability to cope with change.
ooops have been pretty lazy lately, even the yoga is on hold cos my instuctor is ill at mo. Have done some all day walking in the countryside stints but not enough of em really. Focus woman, focus.
yay well done Tordisa you've been doing great you are also a braver woman than me getting in the pool! i also have fear of water but that's mostly swimming pools (bad memories of so called swimming lessons at school have scarred me for life!) I'll pootle around in the sea in a big pink rubber ring but u won't find me near a pool no way (ugh feel sick just thin king of swimming baths ugh)
