cheep cheep

"mummy, I'm vegetarian" was how I was greeted at the school gate today.
Apparently in science, the girls are "growing" chicks from eggs in an incubator. There was an unfortunate incident resulting in eggs being cracked and the contents were then duly examined. We are now officially vegetarian until the hatched chicks leave school!

So, we are now curled up on the sofa eating cheese bagels instead of the planned kedgeree, watching A Little Princess , which we wouldn't normally have time for on a school night..... "it's a wonderful life"

"raindrops keep falling on my head"

we're back from Devon where the weather was somewhat traditional for an English holiday! Easter weekend was a washout , but from then on was glorious and we had lots of time on the beach. As we clambered over rock pools, rode on a steam train and went seal spotting on a small boat, we realised that we do live our family vision for daisy and mouse. We ignored spoon fed tourist attractions and rowdy play grounds, choosing to explore secluded bays and "free" natural attractions. All we needed were wellies , buckets and spades our best friends and a dog !

Back home, we are planning lots of changes for the website, making it simpler to navigate and offering more creative ideas as well as products. We just need the girls back at school to start making it all happen, so watch this space.....
