Princess Di and the Queen Mother

Huffle went off to work. The boys (who now don't play on the IPad, actually played this morning and after school - old style!) went to school.

No snow for them to kick around on the drive anymore.

Clouds (for no other reason than I liked them)

I went off to work. I expected to be replanting millions of Tomato seedlings but they haven't grown as quickly as they expected so four of us were cutting, tying and staking Clematis. Many many species were there including Princess Diana (one of Grandad's), and Queen Mother. It was standing up work today so coffee break was a longer affair. Someone had made Zucchini (courgette) and Chocolate muffins which were yummy and moist. I took in some flapjack. "Flapjack over here is a pancake". WELL THIS IS A SCOTTISH RECIPE MADE WITH OATS! They all had a piece and they loved it. I had to give the recipe to two people. I stayed there until about 1pm. Next week I should be able to get into the garden and do some tidying up.

I came home, had lunch, watched Bomb Girls and then stained the stairs in the loft. I started from the top step, cleaned it all first and worked my way down to the bottom. When I finished I was very pleased with my work until I realised that I had left the lid of the stain at the top. DOH!

I tidied away (apart from the lid) and skyped Aunty Miaow. It was lovely to talk to her, until the boys came home. I was just telling her how different Smallest was and how calm he had become, when he ran in and jumped on me and sat on my head!! Yes well.......... Aunty Miaow and Uncle Tuc want to go to Niagara (is that allowed Aunty A?). I skyped Moo and we chatted about Travel Insurance and then I had a lovely online chat with Mrs ElderflowMeadow. I haven't had a proper chat to her for ages but since I joined Facebook (which I said I would never do) I have discovered the 'chat' feature. Love it. The only downside is I didn't get to hear her lovely laugh. Hopefully we can SKYPE soon.

Small did his homework and Smallest played in his bedroom. We had a brief visit from ClownRose with some chocolate for the boys. The kids the played with their wrestling rings and Lego. You know, proper playing like in the old days - love it.

It has been snowing off and on again, someone today said that it was going to be a colder than normal April (oh dear G&G - bring a jumper).

Huffle came home and we all had dinner. Small tried to iron his uniform and then went off to cubs. Today they are fine tuning their KubKars, using a bandsaw - I do hope that he comes back with all his fingers!

Smallest blogged about his party at the weekend and then we all played Table Tennis and played with Smallest's new Walkie Talkies.

Smallest is very tired after a day at school. He has had four days off and today must have been tiring for him because he is very tetchy and easily upset. MrCash rang this evening and is coming round tomorrow first thing to finish off a few things, so Smallest and I will have a lazy 'in' morning at least.
