and I was thinking at 6:15pm tonight when Middle Small walked towards me with Peter and Jane 3b in his hand "You know this love of learning that you have, well, would it be okay if you just put it on hold for a while because I am knackered and I just want to sit down in silence with no body touching me!"
Today we have had the marvellous Grandma & Grandie here for the morning so the front path and back garden are swept and the Everest of ironing is no more, The Daddy One managed to spend some time at the allotment and watch the Monaco Grand Prix.
E has been playing this reading game today with the word magnets and wine gums. Hidden under a pile of 2 or 3 words is a wine gum, read the words, eat the sweets!
Despite being somewhere where ice creams have been on fairly conspicuous sale everyday this week The Smalls seem to have, since the dentist, really cut back on the sweet treats, they have, until the word game, been preferring peas in the pod instead but the digestive consequences of over indulgence have been a little hard to handle.
Baby Small has spent the whole day dressed as Buzz Lightyear today, I think yesterday's theatrics have rather captured him. We played charades again last night and S stunned us with her imaginative choices. For one turn she was Baby Small's toy monkey!
after they left we did some drawing on black paper and some knights cutting and sticking pictures, in the kitchen again!
