Phew, what a week – we’ve finally said goodbye to the eldest’s ear infection, and I’m pleased to report that he’s back to racing around and obsessing over Lego again. I missed week 10 of the 52 Project completely – there weren’t many smiles knocking about round our way, so it seemed a bit of a pointless activity. I suppose I could have just taken a picture of the Calpol bottle!
Daisy: Obsessed with being arty at the moment, I caught her head down, creating something multicoloured and fabulous. She calls crayons ‘drawings’ and spends a lot of time sitting next to Ben while he draws detailed treasured maps and Lego creations. (This sounds immeasurably cute, but it actually all goes to shit after about five minutes when they both decide that it’s absolutely imperative that each has the blue crayon, and end up tussling for it on the floor.)
Ben: My little nature lover; a quick drink in the sun after school before we started digging the garden over, ready for planting. He was really involved in the growing last year, and is massively excited to get going now that Spring has arrived – this year, we’re doing carrots, beans, squash, chillis and all manner of herbs.
We’ve really REALLY been enjoying the sun and making plans for the garden this weekend – what have you been up to?
