Isn't this amazing - someone builds this, the tide comes in and he starts another one the next day, what a gift........

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at the weekend and let the children toast with us with champayne cocktails - claires being very lemonadey!! but still with a dash of colour and the sugar cube at the bottom.

After taking a sip she asked what the sugar cube was doing at the bottom of the glass bubbling away and was told that it is turning to alcohol!!! but she misheard and said "l can't believe it turns too calpol"

I really had the giggles after that !! she says the funniest of things sometimes!

Hi-de-Hi !!!
Well Friday arrived and Carol & kiddies turned up to go on our little adventure..........Hopton caravan park !! Friday to Monday - thought l could just about last 4 days without pining too much for hubby and home - how sad does that sound !! Cutting a very long story.... short, Carol and Joshua were poorly - the caravan was sooooo cold - we put on our "British stiff upper lip" and continued to endure it..... wasn't all we hoped it would be but was the best it could be under the circumstances !! Please pray for carol she's now on antibiotics...... It will be miraculas if me and the girls don't get this horrible flu-bug but we're ok so far; do feel incredibly tired today but that could just be the weekend finally catching up !! The first night in the "chiller caravan" Carol and myself saw every hour on the clock we took to sleeping in the lounge and in our clothes !! l think the children had a good time and that after all is why we went !! Here's a few piccy's to show how we braved the cold and endured oh sorry embraced the whole experience!!

the face says it all !!

Today we've been in the garden planting some of the shrubs we purchased at the weekend; Ray our neighbour was kindly helping Andy with the breaking of the concrete and wheeling it all round to the skip !
The subject of insects came up because Claire is so fearful of bees, wasps, and generally any creepies and kept running off at any buzz - can't think who would instill such a fear in her children !! anyway after much discussing Ray and Andy convinced Claire to hold a worm in exchange for £10 she ummed and arred for ages and then all of a sudden decided she'd go for it, within an hour she was happily holding them saying come on mum,hold the worm !! And even chased me round the garden with one that l didn't find funny at all - with all the comotion and the incentive of another £10 Laura came out and decided she could manage to hold the thing and was £10 better off; l have to add they had to hold the worms for a certain length of time and the money is handy for their weekend away !! they had conquered a fear and so Andy concidered it money well spent.
Unfortunately l couldn't do as well as the girls l had one dropped in my hand for a second or two and dropped him straight back on the mud Yuck - but you understand it's not that l was scared !!! I JUST DIDN'T WANT TOO !!! and anyway l wouldn't be able to eat spag. bog. for weeks !!! Ray has said to the girls they will have them picking up spiders before they know it !! the worm all of a sudden seems easy peasy !!
So come on who could hold the worm without the incentive of money ( l have to add l don't mind them whilst l'm gardening as long as they stay in the mud and l have gloves on)
