Today it bucketed down, it poured relentlessly, it was cold and dark. But despite a few battles and the odd Mexican standoff, we got through. I introduced Angus to a fond childhood game that my sister-in-laws played with me. Our long, thin house is perfect for What's the time Mr Wolf? Which is just as well, as once Angus had a taste for the wickedness of it, we played no less than 40 rounds. Worked up a good deal of sweat and burnt plenty of energy too. I always love when children really like something, they thrash it with unbridled enthusiasm. Felix squealed with delight and joined in with the chase each time.
We did play dough, drawing (in Felix's case, all over himself!), devoured a truck load of fruit (must have been all the running up and down the house) and sought satisfaction in every Mama's best friend, Disney Pixar. Angus has a slight obsession with the colourful characters from Cars 2. He loves the movie and thanks to my Mama and one of my brother's has almost everything that opens and shuts in Cars paraphernalia. Again, he has thrashed the Cars 2 dvd, but until today, hadn't seen the original Cars. What perfect timing that he should receive the dvd from my brother yesterday. A piece of gold for Mama, who may or may not have dozed off for a lazy hour in the middle of the movie, while Felix also slept. These rainy days indoors as a stay-at-home Mama aren't all that bad, really.
Poor quality photos due to dodgy stand-in camera... nothing to do with the photographer.
