Well it is half term week so have had Oliver and Rebekah for a few days
Oliver's favourite craft at the moment is Hammer Beads
and he was happy to spend hours with them
I got to pick my favourite to keep so I chose the butterfly which now lives on the freezer door
Lunch and afternoon at Pilgrims Hall was a worthwhile choice as apart from feeding the chickens
and collecting the eggs
there's lots of space in the house and grounds for them
One afternoon we took them to our local country park (forgot my camera and my phone!!!) which they loved as there are many Reindeer there and a great wild life centre but hard for them to contemplate a place without climbing frames.
However after our constant wet Winter everywhere was mud, mud, mud and Oliver suddenly appeared round a tree covered from neck to toe, and with his jacket open it was not only on the outside but also the inside! The volunteer in the wildlife centre said, "That's what fun in the wild is all about" to which I replied "It's not going to be too much fun in the car"
He very kindly brought us some black plastic for him to sit on!
No sign of Spring yet - we have a 4 day severe weather warning and the Arctic winds are bitingly cold
