Saturday Snippets 23rd November 2013

{feeling} tired and a little bit ill, but lucky to have such lovely children.  Owl has been really good at noticing when I’ve not been feeling well, and trying really hard to help.  Rabbit also offered to learn how to cut her nails so I wouldn’t have so many jobs to do!

{reading} Christmas poems with the children

{playing} Shopping List (Orchard toys game) with Rabbit

{cooking} supper on a fire in the garden

{watching} Strictly with the children – well, I mainly watched the three little ones dancing in front of the TV!

Owl gave me breakfast in bed yesterday, and got the breakfast for all the little ones too.  He even made a menu and took everyone’s order on a notepad!  Monkey and Rabbit have been playing very imaginatively together.  I can’t claim to know all the details, but at one point, Monkey was Santa riding on his Trunki, and Rabbit was a reindeer pulling him along.  Tiddler has been playing with cars on his car mat, building train tracks without help and playing with Lego Duplo.  Yesterday he tidied up the playroom himself without help and without being asked.
