The Week That Was – 3.48…

June 8th, 2011 · 8 Comments

So here we are… wintry and wet…


I think I may have forgotten what winter was like… was it always like this? Or did we miss a couple of years?

It has been fairly intense!!!

The kind of weather that brings out the bumper sticker in people:

The beach was miserable…

And folk have been dressing for the occassion…

It wasn’t all rain…

But lets just say we are living in a laundry circus…

Every time the sun shone someone was sent out to hang socks on the sock tree…

In fact if the sun came out then so did a whole lot of little people too…

And a serious competition…

And serious play…

Friends galore…

And sharing a book…

And more book moments…

And there is one person round here who totally believes you can climb right into a book… seriously…

And plenty of laughs…

And exploring…

The Lego has resurfaced… after a few weeks off…

And I wasn’t the only one who dashed out to garden whenever the sun sneaked out…

There was scientific discovery…

And the artwork offering of the week…

And our book of the week… because some of us are wishing it was time for popsicles and swimming parties!!!

And this is what the hoods got up to:
Hood #1: Had a midweek music concert…

Hood #2: Reading again…

And again…

Hood #3: School and stuff…

Hood #4: Math in bed… it was too cold to get out from under the duvet.

Hood #5: Some chefs can’t face the day…

Until their hat is on…

Hood #6: Has taken to sorting out the kitchen…

Hood #7: This picture was specially for the girl who loves diggers…

This kid just will not feel the cold!!! Apples in the rain!!!

    Hay Irene… Freezing it is!!! #8 has a passion for his dad and so his Dad’s slippers are the perfect choice of footwear for the day!!! Hope the weather warms up soon!!! Have a good week!!!

    Oh my! You are feeling to the cold. I’m going to miss all your beautiful blue sky photos. Not surprised that you have a huge number of inside entertainment to take your mind off it. I love your sock tree. Does it bear fruit as well as dry socks? Could this help to explain the mystery of the lone sock?
