So. Eddie got rid of the tree. He did all the chopping and occasionally I did some pulling on a rope to make sure the branches fell in the right direction. He did very well!! After it was all over though he began to get a bit upset about the amount of wood he was going to have to dispose of so I phoned a garden clearance place to come and get rid of it for us. They should be coming tomorrow for a quote.
Other news this Sunday morning - well Eddie is out in the back garden "looking" at the large conifer tree. When I say looking I mean he's sawing bits off. I think he is assessing whether he can take the whole thing down himself or if we need to get a tree surgeon to do the job.
Microwave exploded yesterday so Eddie and Lucy went off to buy a new one. It fits in the same spot as the old one and is highly funky!

Lucy had her friend Jemma round yesterday - good grief I wish she'd just calm down when her friends are round. They had quite a nice time though - despite arguing about everything. It's Lucy's first go at "lengths" (new swimming class that goes up and down the pool) tomorrow. It's supposed to be much more exhausting so fingers crossed it doesn't put her off.

I wonder if a homemade version of the same thing will be equally successful!
Also - I wonder if it was the fact that they felt all grown up in their bumbos that meant they ate it, rather than what it tasted like.
First time attempt at upright eating. Mealtimes has been in the bouncy chairs so far. This can prove interesting at times as Thomas has a habit of bashing his legs and bouncing his chair - making it quite difficult not to poke the spoon down the back of his throat! Lunch today in the bumbos seemed quite successful - they seemed to think the new uprightness of food was quite exciting!

We ALL went swimming yesterday - the twins had their first go in the pool. Not too disastrous - Tom looked like he was about to squeal but managed to keep it together. Lottie attempted to crawl in the water but I manged to keep her face out of it. She did some good kicking legs in the deeper water too. Here they are after we got out and dried them and stuck them both in their car seat. Instant sleep for both.

Actually this is Tom sitting outside Granny and Grandad's caravan yesterday.

The Magnolia in the front garden is looking rather splendid at the moment. It is covered with flowers and people stop and look at it. It drives poor old Ted next door up the wall though as it drops a huge amount of petals in his immaculate front patio. In Autumn, it drops a similarly huge number of large leathery brown leaves. The poor chap spends ages sweeping them all up.
