A Distilled Life: Five in Five (series one, day three)
This challenge has come at a time when we are experimenting with free access to computers. The kiddles love, love, love spending time exploring virtual worlds, but this makes for boring pictures. What follows is the (very much edited) highlights of the other-things-we-managed-to-squash-into-the-day.
The little fella is into everything at the moment - books, boxes, laundry baskets, cupboards, the recycling. Nothing is safe anymore...
The legendary "Life of Fred" arrived yesterday and I managed to coax the bigguns away from the screens. Fred was a massive hit; four chapters before they were ready to quit! Fred kept us company on a very long bus journey later in the day.
It's collect-the-veg-box day today, and, a quick glance in the fridge reveals copious amounts still leftover from last week. So elaborate pizza making plans follow; cauliflower crust, which gets a thumbs up from the grown ups and the little fella, but a massive no-no from the other two, hence the flour.
Mammoth trip to the Homeopathic Hospital (moving en masse on bus and foot), where remedies were tweaked and I was heralded a "pioneer" with "wonderful parenting" skills by the doctor... my ego really dug that!.
Parklife shenanigans with the little fella playing peek-a-boo before bussing it home. Home-made pizza shelved in favour of chip shop fish and chips - Miss Moo off to Woodcraft folk pretty much as soon as we got in the door, so no time for complex culinary quests.
