Every single thing in the cottage is covered in at least one speck of glitter from rooms we haven't been into, books at the back of the shelf, all victims of the glitter fairy lol.
He took some persuading but we stuck with a tree/star/sun theme, his first choices were clowns and cars!
Went out to get some logs, opened the door, had my back to the door picking logs to chop and I heard chickens chatting to me! The two had gone to ground somewhere and only came home a few hours later, they must have been petrified :( Not something I would usually wish on another animal but that damn fox familiy has had so many of our chickens I wish them all short lives.
Anyway Rargh and Beep 1 live on for now but I feel it is on borrowed time.

Friday found K with a raging temperature and then Sat' afternoon E joined him. C has had it all week as well, I hate them being ill but when there are 3 lots of man flu to contend with I just want to escape for a while, so I swung the axe about and chopped logs.
Finally started putting the wood protector on the gate yesterday but it wasn't quite dry in a few spots before the condensation of the night began so some spots will have to be done again. Trouble is it's winter and all these sorts of jobs are really late summer ones, oh well. Table and benches all oiled as well. My list of winter jobs is growing, we should really dig over and manure the veg plot we had the fire on, I want at least one of them ready to use next year. Part of the scaff plank has rotted away but I reckon it'll be fine with a quick repair job, I'm hoping the weeds aren't holding all the scaff planks together!
The leaves on the pear tree are growing bigger, soft ears of green braving the winter. The strawberry leaves are finally turning autumnal, the decadence of being in the greenhouse means they carry on for quite a while!
My season table swop is yet to arrive but my recipient liked hers, phew :)
Woolies for GPLETS finished as well. http://www.flickr.com/photos/14095482@N05/3089118589/
I can't believe I got 10 minutes peace to type this up, fingers crossed the boys are better tomorrow.

Logs are being stockpiled but they need drying out for a few months.

Nana has come to stay in the caravan which has pleased K no end, he's been asking if she is here since he woke up this morning! She brought down a puppet theatre passed on from my sisters children, he LOVES it!

Went to Lappa Valley on Saturday, a rare day of sun. Got some pictures of K coming down the huge slide. E was on my back and I forgot about him so we took one in the car! Oops!
We have the two bottom front teeth and more on the way. Rolling from front to back and as of 5 mins ago rolling from back to front! Still a bit wobbly when sat up and is prone to toppling forward without warning.Sleep was a restful all night long and then he hit the 4 month growth spurt and sleep officially became a luxury for the weak!
His woolies and sleeping bags and cute clothes are all getting too small and need to be sold on. I didn't feel like this with K as I was keeping it all 'just in case' ;) but there can't be any more and it feels very strange and is definately tinged with a little grief.
He's been watching me eat for a few weeks and is mesmerised by the food or the act of it being eaten, I'm not sure which, so yesterday he had some sweet potato and carrot, it all got squished and thrown around, eating was not top priority! The fruit puree was tasted but not eaten, then today K was having banana for afternoon snack and he wanted some so he had a piece that I think he was just trying to get milk out of .
He adores K, giggles at him and watches his every move desperate to join in with whatever he's doing, K has realised he has an audience and plays up to him big time!

My photos consist of the boys in the car as I failed to successfully juggle one baby, one toddler, one bag and a camera.
My new bag is the clever 'onbag', the last stitches went in this morning and I'm just getting used to it. If I get my hands on a snap press I will add a few in certain places but it is big enough to take nappies and clothes for 2, plus drink bottle, snacks etc. It will take a bit of getting used to but so far so good, rucksack was OK as was across the body, on one shoulder was a bit uncomfy as I didn't place the knot correctly and it was very heavy.

Edan is starting to roll himself over, he can pivot 360* around very succesfully and with a nudge can go from back to front but he can go from front to back all by himself looking very pleased with himself as he does it!
Butterflies! Might do the beehive and bees sometime this week but the weather is meant to be sunny all week so maybe not!
