O was brilliant this morning, regular readers will know he loves jigsaws, and he completed one of Lightning McQueen with a, totally unprompted, "Ker-Chow!" at the end.
S was funny too, shortly after waking up she said "In my dream you sacked the cleaner and I was in heaven because we didn't have a cleaner." S is not keen on the cleaner, well, that is not totally accurate, she likes the cleaner herself she just detests having to clear her bedroom floor and coming home to find her stuff all moved.
So, before 11am S had painted some fashion designs, played a game with O called "bedtimes" and co-oped me into helping with a mermaid project from her Usborne Mermaid things to make and do book (but I am not very good at painting on aluminium foil and mixing glue and food colouring was harder than I had anticipated) and E had turned his knights castle into a Halloween party.
Everyone seemed pretty happy at home but I felt some fresh air might be appropriate (I know, I can't help it!) so we popped over to the nearby Medieval town of Petworth for a play and the park and we spotted this witch who had crashed into a building. The Smalls thought she was great.
On the drive over to Petworth we called into the Southern Harvesters tractor shop. We used to take E there so often when he was two that I one stage I suspect the owners thought I was casing the joint! They have a great forecourt of new and used Claas tractors and implements which O just loves to see. Strewing for 2 year olds, taking them places they like to go. S & E were looking at books in the car so they didn't mind too much. Pleasing all of the people all of the time..........
