Busy, Busy, Busy

A brief catch up…
Wednesday Carol and her three children came over for the day and we all had a lovely time. Thursday and Friday XLB came to stay and work on some brickwork with Matt. We also had a Muddle-Puddle group on Friday. Saturday my Mother and Jay came to visit. Sunday after Church Chris spent the afternoon with us at the little trains. Yesterday a friend and her one year-old boy came to visit.

Today I felt tired, the chilldren were hard work and I just wanted to spend the day in bed with a book. Ah well. Yesterday Benjamin did his first attempt at writing. He wanted to write a playhouse sign for the playhouse and his name. He wrote the l, o and i, and I did the rest for him. Today Isaac refused to wear a nappy or clothes. At one point B decided to do a wee in the garden and Isaac immediately rushed over and stood beside him and did a wee at the same time, which makes me think that perhaps he is ready for potty training. Although I am not sure I am really feeling quite patient enough to tackle it at the moment.

Matt came home today having taken a detour to pick up a Dampftrackter or Wilesco Steam Traction engine. We tried it out on the patio in the dark. Although it wasn’t quite so dark when the flames were licking up the sides- I think it may need a little practice to get it right. But it chuffed around the patio, and the boys will love it.Photos to follow……
