We're still here ...

Must be the house, or the area, but P and I are feeling very laid back since our move and finding it very hard to get into gear! Anyway, thanks for all the well wishing comments and, if the blogring email about hibernating was for me, I apologise I am here, but trying to (slowly) sort our lives back into a routine. So, Katie and Ben have been busying themselves quite a bit with arts and crafts, here's some piccies:

Katie's been persevering with a 3D paper art kit to make a cat. We picked the pack up for £1.50 from a warehouse style store but the instructions are terrible!

Ben decided to make a football pitch for his Lego guys ...

Katie followed a simple pattern to make a cute cat.

Ben and Katie have been designing castles with their "fit together cardboard castle" set - here's Ben's version.

Katie's done numerous new horse and fantasy horse pictures - I love them all.

We made woven pots using material and dead leaves from the large yucca type tree in the front garden. They've worked really well and are very sturdy. Katie also made a yucca leaf/felt bracelet (hanging over the top of the pot) and some jodhpurs for her doll.

Lots of playing in the garden, as well as visits from friends and family. Great fun with this balloon that whizzes in the air making wonderful rude noises.

We've started a "what's in our garden" poster and have been learning all about frogs and toads as we have plenty of them near the swimming pool.

Taking our visiting Flat Traveller "Tweety" from the USA to various (not so) local attractions.


Must put up these pictures of the ducks that visit us daily. They certainly have characters and one of them appeared out of the bushes with ducklings yesterday.

This one would be good for a caption competition.

So, so cute ducklings - but who is the father?
