We popped out today to post a Very Important Parcel and to go to our local South African butchers. The VIP had to be posted to my friend whose birthday is tomorrow. She is having a lovely dinner tomorrow night, which we had planned on going to, having organised our very first baby sitter. Typical that the baby sitter had to cancel yesterday because of a death in her family. We don't have a back up plan. So, as we can't deliver the VIP, I decided to post it instead.
At the butchers we bought some drywors - a spiced dried sausage - YUM. Chloe approved of her first taster. Ava ate half of mine then a load of Daddies when he arrived home.
Did you notice the plaster on Chloe's finger up there? Ava caught Chloe's finger in the door this morning - so she has a huge skin flap on her little finger. Peeled the top layer of skin right back...poor little chicken. Daddy nearly passed out - ha!
At Hobby Craft this afternoon we found a £1 goody bag haul. All these fun bits and bobs for £1! The Pebeo tubes are relief outliners, not sure what I will do with those yet. Am not even sure what surfaces they are intended for. The paint is that fun Setacolor Soleil - in vermillion, cardinal red and buttercup. I have been really tempted by these before now...we can look foward to the weather warming up to give them a go. Then there are also a bunch of silk cushion covers. No idea what those will be used for, but I can see loads of fun experimentation in the near future.
The ankle biters were worn out and passed out in the car. They actually slept for a bit in the house too. Great, except that Ava then decided that bed time was 9pm tonight, instead of 7pm. She doesn't normally have a daytime nap anymore...
Have an excellent and special Leap Year Day tomorrow.
