That sums up today I think. We went shopping to spend E’s birthday money, and H’s half birthday money (become a tradition, as H still has 6 mths left until her birthday). It went a little wrong when E and I disagreed over what constitutes a sensible purchase, but we emerged unscathed and with happy children with new things 🙂
B came back – hooray! – after being away with work all week, and we’ve attempted to tidy the house ready for the in-laws imminent arrival.
This evening we made balloons using a funky little kit our lovely friend gave us yesterday, which involves putting weird plasticy-gum over the end of a pipe and blowing:A random purchase while we were out shopping was stuff that turns bath water into goo. Not my best purchase, as I bought the wrong stuff in an effort to spend less money, and it was meant to put in a small bowl, not a bath, so didn’t go gooey, more just a weird texture. E wouldn’t go near it, but H and L played happily in their pink bath water with weird bits in!
