I’m supposed to be leaving for a playgroup bazaar in an hour and i’m far from ready so i’ll blog… but only briefly.
Lovely few days with The Porticos, i think we all had a really nice time. Amelie was full of even more confidence on her return and had clearly begun to assimilate a few extra siblings in her mind! Poor Alison arrived to find the house in uproar – a good 80 boxes of stock had just arrived that needed putting away and then 100 were waiting to go. I have to say she proved herself more than capable of a retail career and unboxed, organised and reboxed with a skill rarely seen in one new to a sellotape gun 😆 Dunno WHAT i’d have done without her, so thank you 🙂
Wednesday we took all the children out to That Painting Place and spent the entire afternoon there making presents for people. Most of my lot did 3 things each and i did some bits too and was most pleased with them! Can’t believe quite what we spent but it was fun. That even we had a nice (and extremely late/early) night but i avoided parcels and stopped short and just placing box orders! Kids played beautifully till late too.
Thursday i introduced the Porticos to Fimo 😈 and then they left! 😆
After that my lot chilled, they were shattered and barely moved from the sofa for the rest of the day while i started tidying up and yesterday wasn’t hugely different though Fran has done loads of computing and stuff and they all started on a pre-Xmas prune. We had visits from Kate and Aisha, so some playing happened too though.
Josie has been growing up; she has acquired Buttercup’s toddler bed and has slept in it twice. She was perfect the first night but wandered a bit last night, though not too much. She has also done her first poo on the toilet (worthy of blogging i feel!!!!) and christened the house by being the fist person to throw up in it, which i sincerely hope is not the start of a bug 🙁
Fran also stayed up till midnight last night reading. Now, WHO did she get that from??????? 😕
