Mimi and Cakes have had a full on entertainment programme this holiday. Yesterday, Cakes went with Grandma to the cinema to see Escape to Witch Mountain which he absolutely loved. It's a remake of a film that I went to see as a little girl (and, yes, it was a talkie!).
At the weekend we met Rachel The Sister In Law at the War Museum in South London. Mimi is covering WW 2 evacuees this coming term so she's now armed with lots of facts. Must go back to the museum as we missed the 'in the trenches' and 'blitz' experiences.
Cakes has been out with the cubs today for 5 hours - trekking across fields and building fires. Even cooked his own lunch and had a face full of charcoal to prove it. Exactly what little boys should be doing. Next weekend he's down in Old Leigh for the initial part of his sailing badge.
I've been out in the garden for most of the day, shifting stones from one end of the garden to the other. Dr Green has built a rather large flower bed which we will use to grow even more vegetables and flowers to cut for indoors. Photos to follow soon.
The kids are off to friends' houses tomorrow so I will fit in a quick dash to the shops for party/holidays clothes.
Belated Happy Anniversary wishes to David and Judy. X
