Long time, no post

Well I had hoped to update my blog this evening with a few photos of some of the things we have been up to, but I am having trouble getting the computer to recognise the camera for some reason, so that will have to be a project for another day...

Meet our new friends


Noel and April chose these lovely friendly looking puppets on Tuesday when we went to the toy library. They have named them Desmond and Tinkerbell.

We have had lots of fun playing with them and making them talk - I don't know who has enjoyed it more - me or the children!


Blackberry Picking


We've had a lovely morning out on our bikes - collecting blackberries and playing on the park. We made a lovely Apple and Blackberry crumble for after tea - real Autumn food!

Look what I made!


Noel asked me to make him a lego helicopter and I have to be honest I've never made anything out of lego in my life, but I followed the instructions and several hours later he now has a "rescue helicopter" complete with side panels that lift, gear sticks and flashing lights. I'm quite proud of it if I do say so myself!

Scarecrow festival

On Tuesday we wrapped up against the rain and caught the bus to Heather to see the annual scarecrow festival.

Here are some of our favourites.

Noels favourite - Wall E

Incy Wincy Spider - Aprils favourite (despite the fact she doesn't like spiders!)

"Andy's room" from Toy Story
