So here’s a funny story..

The other evening we’d run Chris’s bath in the kitchen and I was in the dining room talking to him before he got into it. I’d presumed that littlest and J were in the living room watching TV. Chris then walked into the kitchen and said, Cathy, come and look at this…littlest (almost 2 year old) was stood up in the bath with nothing on but his very expanded nappy (it was down by his knees) and one blue welly. He took absolutely no notice of us coming in and kept on doing what he was doing. Which was basically stood in a plaster bath full of water with a nappy and one welly on, talking to himself and splashing. He is very funny.

The second story is just a very short one….My head’s been itching a lot (no I haven’t got nits again) and so I’ve decided to go a bit more natural with my hair washing and conditioning and have been using bicarb to wash with and then a cider vinegar rinse. It’s worked surprisingly well so far (and doesn’t particularly smell). This morning I decided it would be good to use a bit of sunflower oil to condition my hair (it was a bit of a random looking around the kitchen and what have I got idea) and since then I have been looking as if I’ve put wet look gel on. I tried to wash it out but it obviously hasn’t worked. Thankfully I haven’t been out anywhere or seen anyone. Chris got back in and asked if it was sweat?? because I’d been working so hard on the garden….

The photo doesn’t actually look tooooooo bad but this is it:


The last thing is, after what seems like months, the patch of soil at the side of the house is ready for planting, yes! We’re still going to try the bee friendly flower seeds and hope they come up and it isn’t too late. It’s been such hard work but definitely worth it.

We’ve found loads of bottles whilst digging but unfortunately there’s also loads of broken glass, which really gets on my nerves because I keep finding it where the kids play too. I’m in the process of gathering it whenever I see any and have a few bags full of it so far.

Lots like this..
Just some of our bottles.
