Some November photos

from the mobile phone so rubbish resolution

random selection - all from this month but in a confused order! Lucy as Santa is due to our Santa fun run next month - she is trying the outfit. The fire and marshmallows was our first fire of the winter. The xmas tree lights in the dark are actually huge - they are on the mast of the Warrior today on my way home from work.

Twins slept in until 6.40am Hurrah

Eddie had fun yesterday. Draining down the radiators to put some stuff in them. In the process flooded the cupboard under the radiator. Then went to the downstairs loo to fiddle with the radiator. Bulb had blown so had to replace it - we currently only have 40w energy saving bulbs but that had to do - this caused a fuse to blow and all the lights went out - whilst I was feeding the twins, heating Lucy's tea and cooking a chicken. Twins didn't seem remotely put out and ploughed on through the macaroni cheese to the light of a Airwick scented candle.

"Show me your tummy"

Tom's favourite joke is "Show me your tummy" at which point he cracks up and lifts his shirt right up so he can have his tummy tickled.

Really nasty weather here - very windy and hailing. Lucy and Eddie have just gone off to swimming up in Drayton. I'm about to take the twins upstaris for a bath.

A month into being back at work. Still rather undecided. Getting used to it.

4 steps

4 steps in a row this morning from Tom.

In other news - I've got their stomach bug. Well - yesterday was worst - I managed til 3pm at work before giving up and coming home to bed and stayed there pretty much.

Tom takes steps on his own

Tom can walk a little bit - he took 2 or 3 steps this morning all by himself. He thought it was very funny and was very pleased with himself.

red puke

Poor old Lottie. When I collected her this morning she was lying in a pool of red stuff. I thought she'd been bleeding from somewhere but when I sat her on my knee in our bedroom I could smell sick - and then she promptly proved it by bring up another load - all over her sleeping bag, PJs, me, the duvet - and then I got it on Tom when I grabbed him to stop him falling off the bed and then Eddie threw 2 towels onto us (to clean up I presume) - but they obviously ended up covered too. The washing machine is having a busy morning. Lottie seems pretty OK though - I guess it was strawberries in last nights tea that made it red.

FB Swap

Lottie isn't very well - teething, another sore eye, dicky tum - so she's grumpy and Tommy is a happy bunny - hence FB swap.

Tommy can build towers

Granny Mo noticed that Tom can build towers yesterday. He is rather clever - he can build a tower of 5 bricks although 3 or 4 are more usual.
