What a lovely time we have had. For a meeting of Raine Drops and Puddles, its been wall to wall sunshine and smiles, both in nature and weather. The children just played so nicely and really mixed well and Barbara and i got plenty of gossip time. Little R got completely worshipped by my 3 which is good news, even Ammi seemed very impressed.
Feel mildly terrified by the possibility of doing Melrose with 4 children, one a 3 month old and no accompanying adult. Gulp. Still its provisionally reserved so hopefully we will be selling places in a day or two.
Fran just made a MASSIVE effort with an Usborne phonetic reader “Fox in a Box” and did ever so well, just off her own bat. Feel very chuffed for her. And now, given the busy playing, late night and early morning nevermind my cold, we are settling down to the Lion King… well its part of our Africa theme!!!
