Proper today entry
I have a cold…. *fixes mrs hojo and/or scruff with stern stare* I have a fizzy nose and I can’t take sudafed – NOT fair!
So – today we started early with a large quantity of fights and teasing – fortunately Auntie Kate came round and largely dispelled such unpleasantness. Then i loaded up a Winnie the Pooh toddler game i “acquired” a while back and Scruff ADORED it. It always makes me laugh that our girls various speech quirks have produced such variations on his name – Fran called him “Coo Gare”, prissy prim Moo calls him “Winnie Ta Pooh” (maybe because his song has been her song since she was a tiny baby, Winnie the Pooh and Madeleine Moo fitting perfectly and interchangeably) and Scruff calls him “Pooh Dare.” Her little face at having her own game was a picture and the other two sat each side of her and helped her move the mouse, which she mainly just clutched to her chest. Not that that seemed to spoil the enjoyment for her! I was very proud of them for not barging in on it.
Then Moo went out and Fran and i did the house, including elements of IT, Dersign and Technology, Personal and Social Development and Art (Sniggers….) She just played with it after that.
Our (free!) addition and multiplication Twist and Shout’s also arrived after that and much fun was had – Fran has gone to bed clutching one :~)
Alice recited “You are old Father William” tonight – its odd you know- i remember ADORING this book – but i hardly recall any of the bits i have read out so far! Nutty caterpillar though!
