Isn't the weather fab? Perfect for the school hols - amazingly the bedroom hobbits have spent loads of time outside;
Testing a trampet for MrVV - little son also got to be the model for the eventual ebay listing!!
Big son is rather used to the full sized ones they use at school - this wasn't as much fun for him.
Busy doing nothing except - enjoying the sunshine, reading and listening to ipods.
He didn't notice when I snuck up on him later on ;)
Practising more diabolo skills - he's getting quite good -we might even attempt to video him at some point.
Action shot with diabolo in mid-spin.
I had a lovely more yesterday with my school friend and her children. Her son hit it off straight away with little son and her daughter was pleased to find I had my 9 year old niece here. The 4 of them had a great time running about outside - playing hide & seek and a games which involved all our wooden sword collection!! Lisa and I chattered for England - lots to catch up with after 20 years! You know someone is a good mate when even after that time there are no embarrassing pauses and you just feel like you are picking up from a conversation had yesterday.
The postie knocked this morning with a couple of parcels - one was a birthday swap parcel for Sophie which they'd really not left her enough time to collect - I shall try again and re-post it tomorrow. The other confused me (it doesn't take much). It was from Kandipandi - she won my recent giveaway (so I'd sent her a parcel but wasn't expecting one back) and had sent me one of her lovely thank you cards AND a pretty lavender heart too as a thank you;
Lastly for today, I ought to show you the result of my visit to 4 charity shops this morning - one pretty tea plate - where are all the pretty bargains at the moment????
Right time for half an hours deckchair sitting with a cuppa before I need to think about feeding these growing boys of mine again - trying to get some proper food into them before they consume their own body weights in chocolate over the weekend!! They came away from my Grandma's this morning with a huge tin of chocolates to share!!
