Ellie had done a poo & was requesting my assistance.
They’re both toilet-trained but still haven’t yet fully mastered the art of cleaning themselves afterwards – but that’s another story, for another time. Or maybe not…
I came up to see her standing next to what looked like a full roll of toilet paper on the floor.
Unrolled. Very unrolled.
Not for the first time!
“It wasn’t me. Jake did it earlier.”
Jake was asleep & I had no proof either way so I left it.
When the Mummy saw this later she was a little cross & questioned Ellie again. Only this time Jake was around, & when he heard Ellie’s story he was irate & denied it.
“I didn’t do it: Jake did”
“Yes you did”
“No I didn’t!”
And so on…
Jake then came up with: “I saw you do it a long time ago!”
“I didn’t! I did it earlier!”
As they say: Oops…
Move over Colombo, Detective Jake is in town!
I don’t think it was intentional, but his interrogation technique definitely gets results!

During term break we treated ourselves to a trip to Folly Farm in Pembrokeshire, a great place for a fun family day out.
One of the highlights when we go there, if it’s on, has been the Magic Show, & this was no exception!
Jake & Ellie are nothing if not enthusiastic. When Mr Magic Man calls for volunteers they always put their hands up & shout “Me! Me!” & are always disappointed when they’re not chosen.
So this time he again asked for a volunteer, & as usual they enthusiastically thrust their hands up into the air. He asked for ‘someone brave’ & I heard Ellie – and I think Jake too – shout “I’m brave! I’m brave!”.
He must have believed her: this time Ellie was chosen, & up on stage she went!
