Naughtiness in the Garden

We have Madeleine and Ian coming round tomight so I was tending sausages for a casserole in the kitchen and the twins were playing in the garden. Eddie and Lucy were off up at swimming lessons. I'd got my eye on the twins but they were still managing to be pretty naughty. Tom climbed on to the table several times and Lottie kept on trying to climb up whilst holding Lucy's basket of kitchen toys. Anyhoo - I've not included those photos here - just the nice ones with face in!

Eddie's Birthday Photos

Load'a shite photos.

But it's Ed's birthday so have uploaded dutifully.. The first one (right at the bottom) is funniest for me as Lucy had just finished decorating Eddie's cake and Tommy was absolutely, bloody adamant that he was going to have some. All I wanted to do was stick the cake somewhere and take a photo - but Tommy wanted to get his hands in. Scroll right down to see photo :).

Naughtiness in Pictures

marble cake

Lucy and I have just made a marble cake this morning. It's cooling on the baking tray and the twins are snoozing. I'm wondering if I should ice the cake - I think Lucy wants it iced but marble cakes aren't usually iced are they....

Lottie still has a cough and gets miserable easily but mostly we're not too bad at the moment. Eddie wants to go off to Hein Gericke a bit later on to look for new motorbike clobber - which is supposed to be his birthday present from us. That's nice and easy isn't it :)

I'm importing new music into my iPod at the moment as I'm getting bored of the stuff that's on it and fancy a longish run this afternoon.

What else - I've just ordered a ring mould for making round cakes with holes in the middle - I went for a silicon one - I've not bought a silicon one before so hopefully that should be fun - maybe I can get lots of silicon ones and through all the rusty metal ones away.

Someone is coughing - better go rescue them from their bedroom.

Valentines Day

Well - we got Lucy a toy phone and some chocolates because she would have been sad otherwise. We're off into town later to buy each other something. Got a bit hectic yesterday with lucy's swimming lesson in the middle of the day so we didn't manage it.
Twins have got a new cold - this one makes them cough and of course lots of snot. Lottie is having steroid cream for her eczema patches. They're having their morning snooze right now and I can hear them cough through the baby monitor.

Lucy bought herself a sewing kit yesterday and is sewing up bits of paper today. She's only allowed to use it when the twins are in bed as she doesn't seem to realise that the needles are dangerous.

Half term week now. Lucy has Imogen coming round to play on Tuesday and it's pancake day on Tuesday too - Sarah will have her hands full. Lucy's managed to persuade her to have a go at the ice cream machine too. That will be fun as I don't think Sarah realises quite how complicated the ice cream machine is. She certainly hadn't got as far as the salt and ice components of the process when I asked her if she knew what she'd let herself in for.

but Ed's still incapable of keeping something in his stomach for 5 minutes. Poor Eddie :(

Eddie's turn

He's got it today. Lottie and Lucy are still ill and Tom is better now. What fun. Got my fingers crossed that they're all better before I get it!

Now Lucy's got it

twins seem to be getting better but Lucy's got it now. Eddie & I are fine. Don't think the twins need the doctor. They drank their morning milk and don't have a temperature now. Lucy's taking the day off school though. Lucky Sarah.

my best guess


That fits. Gastric flu from what I read. That is doing the rounds right know so I'm told.

They're still ill and I haven't been to the doctors yet. have checked with boss that it's ok to come in late tomorrow though so will take them tomorrow if there is no sign of improvemnt.

My Boy

Still not well. Got a temperature. Not eating or drinking :(

Doctors tomorrow if he's not getting better.

Sick twins

Tom started it by puking at 3am on Sunday morning. They've been on the go since. Seem to have stopped puking now but that might be being controlled by the fact they've stopped eating. They seem to need calpol at the moment too. Ah well.
