Saturday Snippets 5th October 2013

{recovering} from a busy week with a much needed lie-in this morning

{feeling} a bit more positive after a day of housework – the mess was getting me down

{managing} to complete 5 days of the 30 day shred so far

{drinking} Gin and Tonic – haven’t had one for ages, and I really enjoyed it!

{eating} a rather good bacon and bean stew (and wishing I’d made enough to have leftovers) followed by stewed apple with cinnamon and raisins, and custard

{reading} The Adventures of the Owl and the Pussycat (review to follow)

making plastic

{snapshots} Owl made plastic yesterday, using milk and vinegar.  He wants to try it again, with food colouring next time.  Monkey, Rabbit and Tiddler played a very imaginative game this evening, inspired by the Owl and the Pussycat book.  They made a boat out of two chairs, a blanket sea, an island of cushions and a cave out of more chairs and another blanket.  They sailed to the island, encountering a pirate ship on the way and found some treasure in the cave.  This all took a very long time, so they were rather late to bed!
