Sigh… you just get somone sorted and another one does something daft… Yesterday Moo jumped off a chair (butt naked as usual!) and landed on a sellotape dispenser, cunning placed on the floor… don’t ask me why… And of course, she landed on the serated edge and sliced the pad off two of her toes :~( Now, i can do blood, but flappy bits of skin… no. And there was a LOT of blood – it took ages to get it to stop and she was desperately shocked – she went all grey and shook dreadfully. We ended up in casualty having it steri-stripped back together – there was no way that they could stitch it without sedating her so fingers crossed they hold. Must say Pud was a star; got me a cold wet flannel, a first aid kit, warm coat for Moo – really came into her own – which considering the general lack of common sense we’ve had from her recently was impressive!!!
In other news… well, we now have a new rabbit to be a mate for Peter – Button, a broken fawn mini lop – very very cute. They seem to like each other and the kids are thrilled. Daddy has converted an old wardrobe into a double layer hutch – quite incredible – and a damn sight cheaper!
As for HE – well – we hve taken delivery of a few new computer games – Zoombinis for one – which Pud loves to play. Moo is doing her normal “sit and watch” routine, and will presumably just play it straight to the end in a week or two! We have also started on Eduss maths which is a non game based maths tutorial – and very good too.
The bad king continues to be a big hit – waxworks of him and his wives showed up on Tikkabilla yesterday to Puds great excitement – i must try to find out where it was. She is fascinated that we can find out so much about him and we have had really interesting dscussions on why he is buried at Windsor Castle and why its his sons and mothers of sons who are buried with him. I shall have to do a little unit study on him i think – its one of her first real natural obssessions. She is also back into Hama beads and made a beautiful star the other day and yesterday a heart to make Moo feel better.. aaah.
Not so good is that the LEA appear to have caught up with us. They asked for playgroup to profile Pud, we have refused and playgroup is petering out anyway… but i daresay i will get a call pretty soon. So i am working on an Ed Phil – hey ho.
