Comedy and sarcasm

Mummy was looking forward to her Writing club start this autumn. We meet every Wednesday in Prestwick. Sometimes we have speakers come in and give talks on different genres and how to write etc. So ths year we started having a nice lady from the BBC and talked about comedy monologues. Mummy had fun trying to write or shall we say it is a comedy scenario trying to do things while looking after your sister sometimes. So mummy's comedy monologue ended up changing many times and still not fully formed yet. The lady from the BBC will come again in October and then we can see if any of our monologues can be on the radio.

Mummy is trying to put her web/blog up and running. Well, it is up but just needs a few changes to personalise it. So mummy does it while your baby sister is napping or in the evenings. Mummy jokes with people it's called JK Rowling-ing. It would be nice if we get lucky like JK Rowling though, don't you think?! It's all down to hard work as well as networking. Mummy is going to a Writers' conference this weekend, hoping to meet some people who might help us.

Mummy is still toying with different titles for the book. Your dad doesn't read any of the book. It's too painful for him to read about you and he thinks it's mummy's story.

Yesterday in my writing group someone commented on the bit 'Mongol spots.' She thought it reminded her of Down syndrome. Mummy said 'Yes, my boy had Down syndrome.' Mummy was a bit annoyed. So poor Twitter and Stephen Fry got mummy's upset tweets. Why Stephen Fry? Well, he has a lot of followers and mummy hoped he would retweet it. Mummy had enough of people referring to people with Down's syndrome as Mongol(s). Celebrities are just people, no different about them. It just happens to be that mostly their jobs are in the entertainment or media.

Ok, mummy needs to get your big bro for lunch. He likes coming home for lunch. Speak soon, baby boy Billy buuz. Love you baby. XXXXXXX

Time flies

Hallo, Billy buuz. Mummy was thinking about you and wasn't managing to write much lately. Your baby sister is a good girl, but new babies need a lot of attention. We are all enjoying her. She looks like you. A lot. Only she wears pink, well most of the time. She wears some of your clothes. It's funny here children have colours. Blue for boys and pink for girls. She wears your suit(hold on, she is crying..) Now, I'm back. Yes, she wears your white baby suit with blue stripes. People get confused, because she wears a pink hat. :-) In Mongolia, they don't have colours specifically for boys or girls. Well, they didn't when I lived there.

Mummy has been trying to build a web blog for her book(s), talks, interviews etc. So it's very exciting. Your Daddy helped to start it and now it's down to Mummy to make it up and running. Your baby sister and I are trying hard at it with ...erm .. let's say between nappies, feeds, and well, we won't go there almost put rude words here. Your big brother and big sister are doing well. In fact your big brother's friend had told her mum that 'He is the smartest boy in the class.' Well, how proud do you think Mummy was? :-) Your brother is a good boy, started going to Beavers. Beavers is good for him, learning social skills among other skills. Mummy and Daddy think it's important to be happy rather than too clever and unhappy.

Your wee sister is asleep now. Mummy'll try to make a cup of tea. Your Daddy and big sister are great, doing things when they are home.
Mummy was talking to a lady who lost her baby before the little girl was born. It's so sad, the tears were ready to come out yet she appears a very strong person.

Ok, baby boy. More good things to come, Mummy will publish a book in memory of you. My red headed angel. Mummy loves you so much. XXXXXXXX
