Now, I warned you about the snails... This is Son 2 again, who adores the smaller, slimier side of life, and currently has about 10 pet snails, who are taken out for 'walks' at least once a day.
Rain or shine (and we've had both this week) you can find him staring rather delightedly at the antics of his snails on my window. Or not my window, this week. I'm going to move those decorations - they're not safe.
Son 1 has been active too, just less photographed! When his brother was at the Scandinavian Fair, he was on a fishing afternoon, and got some great support from experienced fishermen. He caught a carp, which he ate for tea that evening. Bony.
And for me, the hightlight of the week has been the blogging/MOPS connection! Thank you so much for all your helpful and fascinating comments on my post below. I referred to some of them directly at the MOPS session, and suggested that the mums log on and read the rest themselves!
But what is going on with the loo roll?
Do you have a clue?
Yup, the pre-talk activity was to create two beautiful brides from nothing but loo paper and sellotape. (Aren't I speaking British?)
Don't you think we did well?
And then the icing on the cake - very nearly literally. Son 2 was flabbergasted but delighted to win Sherri B's recipe competition last week. His prize arrived very promptly - the Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, and he opened the parcel and began pouring over the recipes.
