This is Alex pulling all the bags in the sled on the way to school on our recent snowy day... He's so cute.

There was a quick meeting at school about some teacher changes going on in Olivia's class (in which Sophie and my friend Lorayne - also one of this pack of families - have daughters) so after the meeting, we all decided to go up to the high street in Worcester Park and have a coffee. It was all very civilised, even if we did feel a little silly carrying a bright red sledge around the high street!

And to make up for not blogging for ages, here's another little taster of what the kids get up to when they aren't fighting with one another... For those of you without young girls, this stuff is called Ello, and it's a bit like Lego, only with lots of interesting shapes - you can make buildings out of it, and people, and it comes in funky colours - it's a building bricks set, essentially, just a bit weirder and funkier than Lego. Obviously aimed at the girl market (that said, Lego is a lot more girl friendly than it used to be, too!). Sarah and Olivia made all these people last night on their Ello table. Cute in a kind of weird way...

So anyway, today I thought I'd show a few of the things they do when they play. All three of them were playing with playdough on and off this morning - Sarah was helping Alex make a cafe (with playdough food) and then she went to play on the computer and Olivia decided to make playdough pictures - this is her creation above- a playdough girl skateboarding and a playdough lion in the grass. Very creative, I thought.
And this is one of Alex's favourite things to do - make a "train" in his room from the little chairs and add passengers - he is the driver of course! Today he was doing this while I was sewing and I had to keep getting up to see which passengers he ha changed for which other passengers. He has a lot of stuffed animals, so there is no passenger shortage.
