Lottie's eczema seems to be clearing up quite a lot... so that's nice. They both have rotten coughs though. Lucy has pyjama day at school today and has gone off to school in PJs, dressing gown and slippers.

Sunflower seeds and Magnolias

Also forgot to say that the Magnolia has mostly lost all of its petals now.... note to self so I can compare on different years.

Also - we planted sunflower seeds at the weekend - using seeds a saved from last year's flowers. One has come up. Fingers crossed a few more make it.

Paddling Pools

Just bought a mini paddling pool... unfortunately it's supposed to be raining all weekend.


Lottie is wearing her first pair of knickers today! She does have a nappy underneath though - but she looks much more ladylike.

broken computer

Our home PC is broken. It doesn't want to boot. Eddie is going to try to save the data so hopefully that will be OK.

We went to Bognor on Saturday and sat about on the beach with Ivana, Luka and Katya. That was fun - Tom and Lottie loved hurtling towards the sea and seeing who would stop them. Tom also loved playing with the wet sand. Lucy enjoyed playing with Luka. Kevin Ivana's other half) was in a competition to do some spear fishing - which he apparently won.

Gardening aggressively

Just remembered a super saw that my mum gave us for gardening and have been being somewhat aggressive with the ceanothus. A shame really as I think it was just about to have it's splendid flowers - I'm not sure If I was so aggressive that I'll have killed it - we'll see.

New duct tape on the trampoline too - half way through that job - needs a few more layers of tape.

Mowing the lawn is on Eddie's list but we're just about to go out for a run so hopefully we'll manage the lawn after that.

Tom is sitting posting raisins out of the cat flap and lottie is tearful as she wants to go outside.

Wooler at Easter

Well we arrived on Friday around tea time. The twins were pretty good in the car and Lucy was great. Lottie and Tom are getting the hang of Daisy though Tom prefers her.
Eddie and I have done two reasonably long runs in the hills and my legs hurt now. Not sure if i'll manage a long one tomorrow.

Thw whole family (well my side - you know what I mean) met up at Floors castle for an Easter egg hunt today. lucy was delighted to see Diva and Maia. Callum turned up at the end too so it was nice to see him as well. The under 5 challenge (for the twins) and the 5-8 challenge (for Lucy and Diva) was not too difficult but the older children (Maia and Callum) had a hard time.

The twins are now in bed - not feeling too well. Both have gunky eyes and a temperature so they've had an eye wash and some Calpol.

Jake is hopefully heading over again tomorrow with Diva and maybe Maia to play with Lucy.

Eddie has taken some photos - I'll upload when I'm back home
