Filling the space
The kids are out of school today - like I'm sure it is for many of you across the country.
So to fill the space we started off with the more mundane of stuff like ::
We've been shopping and stocked up on all manner of stuff - little helpers helping to unpack and put everything away....mostly in the wrong places.
I'll sort things as I come across them, I'm sure.
The bigger ones emptied the dishwasher for me - again everything put back in the wrong places......oh well.
I've washed - they've tided and fluffed - and whilst the older two had their heads buried in the comics we bought earlier the smallest one and I went searching in the back garden for 'stuff' to use in her painting project.
Sufficed to say - paint and glitter has gone everywhere - but that's half the fun.....right?
The advent calender has gone up already in anticipation for tomorrow. Lunch has been demolished, spare chocs scoffed and the eldest man dispatched at a friends.
And for this afternoon.......?
Cakes are on the agenda then a DVD and popcorn for afters where I'm hoping to collapse before I start the dinner and then familiar evening routine of bath, books, cuddles and bed.
