On Friday I went to work so Hettie went to grandad's and he helped her to build a bird box. She made it entirely from one plank of wood, measured and grandad helped her saw. He started her off with screwing it all together as well. But all in all she done a good job for her first woodworking lesson. We've just got to find a spot for it now and fingers crossed some little bird will take a liking to it!
Dawn very kindly passed this little blog award to me which was really nice of her especially as I enjoy her blog so much!
So now I get to pass it on! Very tricky to pick as I read so many blogs now. So I chose The Briar Patch, One Life, and Life in the Tall House by the Sea because I read them everyday and between them they never fail to make me smile and often laugh out loud as well.
Today I worked, dh and girls helped until they were all beyond boredom, and dh took them off swimming. Hettie has decided she wants swimming lessons again. Not quite sure what hour of the day we can fit that in on but I'll have a think about it. We had a Chinese for dinner tonight and watched 'Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Take Away' (the children love it) and I've just ushered them off to bed.
Oh that reminds me beds - dh bought a new mattress yesterday for our bed. I didn't think the old one was that bad, but I felt like the princess in 'Princess and the Pea' last night I was so high up. What with the new mattress and one of those Ergonomic pillows I bought from Ikea the other day I had a fairly strange but comfy nights sleep.
