White walls and Kids creative space
Well, I faced the music involving holidays while sick with sick children and while there was some " Don't say no, no, no, no, no,no, just say yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah ,yeah" there was also a 5 yo bursting into song in the bath singing " I think I wanna marry you" that made it all ok.
Another white wall finished. Ignore the cream window trim, that's a fiddly job beyond my capabilities right now. Just fuzz your eyes and admire all the other white. Remember how it used to look?
I moved the kids craft space from in front of our bifold doors, tidied it all up and they were straight there creating. Roboboy intermittently pulls a few glorious masterpieces out of his hat.
The Giraffe. From memory this giraffe had some kind of neck injury hence the head down eating cacti situation.
Night Owl. This one came home from Feng Shui Nonna's ( aka my mother's) house. She has been giving him blank canvases since he was 2.
And that other wall? Well, only undercoat so far but giving me goosebumps already. That was a high as I could reach with a footstool. Remember this was an impromptu febrile child in front of TV paint job.
And the aforementioned sick child with fevers came out of his room wearing this in his ear.
"Mama" he said, " come at look at my cochlear implant". His mate at school has one and not to feel left out he just had to whip up his own. We are all about embracing diversity over at Betsy's. Heck, we wrote the manual on diversity. You'll find us under Q for Quirky.
Roboboy and I had a special treat yesterday. We went and saw Cars 2, just the two of us. We both loved it. Lots of fast racing, explosions and cars with awesome secret agent sexy British accents. Afterwards, we looked at some toy shops and I gave in and bought something on a whim, for no good reason other than pure unadulterated 5 year old boy love. And of course, it has been lovingly taken to bed for the last 2 nights.
Yep, that's the cat on the left and Finn McMissile action vehicle with triple missile launcher on the right.
