I bought a posh new tea set. It looks so pretty and makes a lovely cuppa.
I did some screen-printing with Climber's class, printing a "y" onto some white shirts for their costume (as Gen Y) for their number in the Grade 5/6 Production. It was a lovely thing to do with a great bunch of kids.
I've been making a few things for the School Fete Craft Stall. First some dollies, next some bunting.
Fixit has been working on some grand design for his toolbox. He has told me all about it but blah blah blah...huh?
We are watching this, and, as a friend predicted, I am starting to think in a Welsh accent. The show is very, very funny.
We've also been watching the new series of Doctor Who. It has been made available in Australia online as soon as it's aired in the UK, rather than making us wait for ages. I walked in to find the boys watching it on the computer on a Monday afternoon; someone at school had told them about it. When I voiced mild dismay because I'd planned for the whole family to sit down on a Saturday night to watch it on telly, the boys said kindly don't worry Mummy, we don't mind watching it again. So that's what we did.
Doctor Who toys (sonic screwdrivers and daleks) have come out of semi-retirement for vigorous playing time once more. Climber does some of his best imaginative play on the trampoline, chucking himself round like a maniac. It's fantastic.
Yesterday after tap I left the boys buying sausage rolls with Fixit while I checked out a clothing sale. They, of course, finished their shopping before me, and Fixit and Climber decided to head home, but Cherub wanted to come home with me, so Fixit told him to wait outside our local cafe. When I emerged from my shopping I found him in tears on the street - he didn't know where I was and thought I'd gone home without him. It was absolutely heart-breaking, his tear-streaked face and the way he was trying to keep it together but completely panicking on the inside. Oy. My baby boy.
He bounced back though, he's a resilient second-born. And he does have something to look forward to...
For ANZAC Day this is so beautiful and tender
