It was Thomas' school fair today and once again the highlight of the event was throwing wet sponges at the Head Teacher. This year they also had donkeys, a bungee pull and fish and chips. It was nearly as good as Lytham. We came away with a nice little stash of prizes; some down to luck but the sweets and one bar of chocolate were purely down to Thomas' nerf gun skills and his ability to shoot ping pong balls off cones.
Before we went he decided to do some housework to earn some spending money. He did a pretty good job sweeping and steam cleaning the floors but I wasn't overly impressed with his toilet cleaning as he used my flannel!
Mark's Dad seems to have settled into the home already. By 10am this morning he'd asked for his clothes and TV to be taken up and told Mark to sell the house! I think what clinched it was being able to walk to the dining room for breakfast where he was served bacon, sausage, tomato, toast and a brew. I took Amy up to visit this afternoon and this is the view from his bedroom window. When Mark was waiting for him to arrive last night the residents were sat outside with the parasols up.
I was going to have a marmalade making session with Mum this afternoon but I've put it on hold until next week. We're hoping to go strawberry picking next weekend so I'm on a jar gathering mission this week.
