Took a snap of this snail today making it's way slowly up the garden chair, while thinking I could do with taking a leaf out of his/her book (they're hermaphrodites), and slow down a bit myself.
So far we have booked weekends away at Blackpool and Southport in the caravan. We decided this morning that our first 'long' holiday will be Moreton-in-Marsh and we'll be going for 5 nights. As it's in the Cotswolds we should be able to squeeze in a visit to my sister in Cirencester and brother in Cheltenham. And it's only a half hour drive away from Stratford upon Avon as well so a visit there will be on the cards.
Please, somebody tell me they're as untidy as me when crafting. I start off all neat and tidy but within minutes I'm surrounded by mess.
Not wanting to leave the boys out I'm knitting up a few Crazy Critters for them.
Amy went to Manchester with her friend and came back with Hama beads. This is the sort of craft I'd have loved doing with her when she was little but she didn't have the patience or the ability to sit still for longer than 5 minutes back then.Finally, at 16 years old she seems to discovered both, particularly excelling in the not moving department.
Thomas is different and spent quite a while stood next to her making a man holding a sword. Then his friend called for him and guns and gel pellets took over. During one of their running in and out sessions, the front door got left open and Wendy escaped. Thankfully Amy managed to catch her but it was a mad 10 minutes of the boys running around shouting her name at the top of their voices, shoes on to try and help get her back, plans of you go this way, I'll go that way, coming back for chocolate drops then back again because we needed her lead.
And it doesn't help that she's got nothing between her ears. I don't even think she knows her name yet and she's 2 next month. Never mind, she's sat here next to me now fast asleep as though nothing ever happened.
I think maybe of glass of rose may very well be on the cards tonight.
