The Week that Was – 2.45

We had some wild and stormy days… Aaaah we needed a break and a couple of days to chill out and read and watch the rain.


And we had some glorious Autumn days – full of sunshine and flat seas.


We have a strictly “only in the kitchen or outdoors eating rule…” Nobody ever said anything about behind the couch… Nothing at all!!!

We had a heaps of songs…


And twinkling stars…

And boys will be boys…

  3. When one of my daughters was his age, she played with a crate of apples in the corner of the kitchen for almost 2 months. We didn’t get to eat them but it was a very inexpensive toy!
