The other day they were both winding up each other and us, so I sent them through to the playroom. When they came back through Amy had created this Lego version of us to say sorry. Tom had built a spaceship, possibly for the same purpose. :D He was most impressed with his mini-me, including hat and has been wearing a hat almost constantly ever since!

He thought this black one looked really cool and chose some blue decorations to add to it. Then he had fun seeing what toys he could find that could hang on the branches!

I looked through my photos and found these fun ones of Tom and his cousin Matty playing in the garden. Every time they play outside water is involved! They find the hose; wash all their toy cars; splash each other with water pistols or water all the plants. It usually leads to them also getting soaked, but they seem so happy!

We often borrow books, and DVDs, usually on Amy or Tom's cards as these don't get fined if we return the books late (which is always...). Of course over the summer we took out two books on my card, and promptly lost one - a One Direction trivia book. I've been searching all this time, and it turned up this week in a bag in the hall. Also in the bag was a tutu we'd needed earlier in the summer, but which was unfindable. Isn't it strange how that happens? So I've returned the book, paid a fine that was more than the book was worth, but feel happy, after all the library is such a great community resource, and I know they're always in danger of closing due to funding shortages. While we were there I just had to take a quick snap of the two of them reading together, it makes me smile.

I've wanted to put this story on a page for a couple of months and was indecisive over what style of page to create. Tom loves playing with Lego, particularly mini figures. He takes customisation to new levels though, often swapping hands to make his people wear gloves. We have fun games with them, so imaginative. A couple of months ago I found these poor Clone Trooper legs in the garden, no idea where the rest of the figure is, but it just illustrates how boys play with their toys.

The schools here have been back since the middle of August, but I hadn't scrapped the photos yet. Partly that was because our back to school photos are always a little less polished than others. I admire those of you who can set up an impromptu photo shoot. For us, the first morning of term is always rushed. Hey, who am I kidding, most mornings we're rushed! So, as we want to walk to school, not drive, and there are always a few extra things to do that you forget before you leave the house, it's just 'Stop!' as they are walking across the driveway.

It's on a huge site of moorland, and there are many trails through it for outdoor pursuits. Last Thursday we had no plans, as we come towards the end of the school holidays, and when I checked my email I had one from Whitelee advertising their free crafty activities which sounded perfect. So we spent several hours there. First Amy made a windmill to take home, then after lunch at their cafe we walked out to see the wind turbines. They are so large! Also, we picked up a map, and it's always funny that you feel you've been walking for ages, yet on the map you've only covered the smallest part of the whole site. After the walk we came back to the visitor centre for juice and a cake, before they had a look at the shop. Amy chose a pinwheel for 50p, Tom a stretchy character for 30p. All in all a cheap, healthy, local day out!
