It was nice to have a bit of sun yesterday, so we took advantage!
Recent gifts from my loving twins!
Ellie wrote out my shopping list for me – her reading and writing is really coming along! Although I did give her a lot of help with spelling.
And later spilt water on it: sorry ’bout that.
Jake gave this little toy – and said that “every orange thing is a kiss from me”.
I love my little nearly 6-year-olds so very much. Sorry to get soppy!
It was ‘back to the future’ yesterday, when there was a vintage car show and fair here. Of course the car I was most interested in was the only one there that wasn’t actually a real car. Isn’t it great? You can’t see it here but it had all the flashing lights working as well! Jake and Ellie haven’t seen the films so I had to explain it all to them, which prompted a discussion (from Jake) about the possibility of time-travel.
There were also many other amazing cars here: Mustang, Jaguar, Rolls Royce and my other favourite a 100-year-old mint condition Model T Ford.
There were also bouncy castles and other fun things for kids – including free lollipops! – and in truth I didn’t actually manage to spend all that much time with the cars. But we all had a great time.
Now, all we need is 1.21 Gigawatts of power. Anyone got any going spare?
