Bottom.

The icy cold water of our paddling pool is perfect for making lovely heart shaped prints all over the garden.

Made from the bottom of his bottom.

Just charming.

Pumpkin patch kid.

Gruff’s been helping me put our little pumpkin seedlings into bigger pots tonight. We’re hoping to have a sprawling pumpkin patch in our garden Like Hagrid’s garden in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

Sleepover.

No I’m not packing my children off to a faraway country away from nasty Tories, just a little sleepover at their Auntie’s. Obviously they’re well prepared and I can see a little bit of my floor again…

Sticky uppy hair.

All the rage, don’t fight it, embrace it. Neat hair lasts two seconds in our house before someone comes along and ruffs it a bit to fit in with the rest of us scruffs.

The hand on the beach.

We played fetch with a rubber glove that Bonnie found on the beach this afternoon. If that wasn’t strange enough, the glove had filled with wet sand so it felt like throwing a hand. (Not that I know what throwing a hand feels like)…..
We decided that it was not coming home with us but best left on the beach for someone else to rediscover….

Friday night’s alright for drawing.

We all like a treat in our house on a Friday as a kind of reward for making it through the week. It was new sketchbooks today, a big hit. It’s so lovely seeing my children having the same excitement at getting a new sketchbook and racing off to grab their pencils and pens! I still get excited at the thought of a new sketchbook too!

I laid an egg.

Ninja is one of the chicks we hatched from last year. She lives up to her name and is very tame too. She likes to tell the world when she’s laid her egg!

Eye eye.

It looks as though none of my kids will be wearing glasses any time soon. Thankfully Myles’ genes won through on the vision front.
