Oh yes, i remember the sun!!!!
(And DON’T ask me what is going on with my formatting, firefox and the new blogger do NOT appear to have been bug tested very thoroughly >:~( )
Its been shining here today – makes a nice change. So the rabbits have been out and all the girls have had fun watching them play (beats watching them shag anyway!!!!) and lots of water play and so on has gone on too, since we finally got an outside tap fitted this week. Yet again, following the pattern of at least the last week, and it may be more but i have just really noticed it this week, they have just not had the telly on at all really, apart from perhaps a few single programmes to chill out for a few minutes. And in common with the last week as well, lots of really nice three way play has gone on – really i have barely seen them this week, they have been so busy doing things together. The bits i have blogged about have really been tiny interludes in a massive amount of pleasant free playing time. I think we all needed a bit of hunker down for a quiet time space so we haven’t been out or seen people really, but its been nice.
So, Max has been tidying up the car so we can part exchange it if the option comes up and i have tidied and cleaned and played with kids on the rare occasion they have come my way! lol! Today i finally got the washing under control, made a start on our room, which still seems to be suffering from “moving in tat”-itis and took a black bag to the girls room, having repeatedly asked for them to sort it throguhout the week. I chucked broken stuff and junk mainly, with the intent of leaving the rest of it, a manageable amount, for them to sort for themselves, but unfortunately i got caught at it and kind of got forced into a position where i took a bagful of their stuff to the bin in front of them. But… i have been asking all week :~( I doubt they will really miss the assortment of Macdonalds toys and broken bits it was, but it hurt them and i felt a bit mean really.
On a positive note they thoroughly enjoyed the playdough again, i read Fran and Maddy “The Glass Slipper” from the Blue Fairy Book, which was a traditional but not too gruesome rendition of Cinderella and Fran and i had a bit of quiet time reading Bob books together – she managed to master the sounds in “Up, Pup” – somehow she seems to find P, B and D a huge effort, which i know most kids do, but i think its being compounded by also having to concentrate on making those particular sounds come out right, they are the hardest ones for her. So i thought she did very well :~)
