As I work from home it's not easy to go out every day, many days I have deliveries due and I can guarantee that if I go out, even for just 5 minutes, that's when the parcel will arrive - how does that happen? Do they wait around the corner for me to go out? Anyway, today we're not expecting a delivery, we're waiting for the glazier as the bathroom window has somehow got broken - I've questioned the kids to see if anyone's been throwing stones and was informed by my 10 year old that it probably cracked due to the frost......ok maybe he's right, but personally I think someone has been using an air rifle in the fields at the back......it makes for a more exciting read!
Anyway back to Jack - one thing he does enjoy doing is cooking, and he always likes to get my bowls and spoons out, so today I let him loose with my bowls and measuring spoons, some dried pasta and dinosaurs (and the odd frog and spider) and he has been loving it - he's been 'digging' for dinosaurs, spooning the pasta from one bowl to another and generally keeping himself amused for longer than he has ever done before (if you don't count the time he emptied his wardrobe out when we forgot to secure it with a hair bobble!).
Jack has also added a few other 'finds' to dig for - we have Dora, Angelina Ballerina, Tinky Winky, La La and a few of big brothers Micro Star footballers.
You'll have to excuse his attire - I'd just tried his new wetsuit on and he was reluctant to take it off, and has been wearing it ever since.
