The week started with a visit from a friend we have been trying to meet up with for a while. Car problems and mid-day pre-school runs meant that we had very little time to travel and meet up, so we eventually managed it on the first day of half term. So lovely to catch up and see the younger children play so well together.
By Tuesday we had a car back. So after dropping Stan and Stuart's brother off at the train station in Birmingham for a little adventure of their own, we went to visit the BBC studio at The Mailbox. There we could have a go at presenting the news, or the weather forecast or a bit of Newsround. Very difficult, and we got some rather funny results, as we saw when we played back what we had recorded.
We gave the big car a bit of a spruce up. After it had been used for Stuart's daily commute along the motorway, it was looking decidedly salty, so we restored it to it's original black colour. Sophie, when asked to clean the wheels, cleaned the tyres, well that will teach me for not being specific enough!!
Thursday saw Sophie decide to make a house out of a box. It had windows, a door, and later in the day curtains.
Joining in with Jacqui again with a review of the week.
