It's too hot

Water play is the game of choice at the moment but we needed something new. These dollies are now cleaner than ever!

Everything went quiet

That usually means something terrible is happening. Like 2 litres of milk on the carpet or a fishtank full of toys or wee on the floor or oil pastel on the wall or . . . you get the idea. I walked to the other end of the house to find the back door open and this lovely game of dress up happening. They do play nicely sometimes.

I started some knitting

I was thinking of crochet but it was too hard to decide. This is a garter stitch blanket. Even that took ages to choose.

Adventures in breadmaking

Whoever said don't play with your food was missing out on a lot of fun!

Balloon games

We recently bought a book from a secondhand shop - 101 great science experiments. This morning we blew a balloon up with a bottle and made a jet with a balloon. That was fun, but the most fun was when we turned our ballons into funny people!

There has been lots happening here today, but nothing is holding My boy's attention for long. It's just exhausting.

Sewing for my boy

My little boy is going to Ma's house for a holiday. I decided (last minute of course) that he needed more shorts and his own wheat bag. Now I am thinking of cutting out some more dresses for my girls. It's hot here you know!

We went to the beach

Apparently throwing sand is the funnest thing?
