More gerbily fun





The favourite plaything of a gerbil is a cardboard tube - they love to chew them into little pieces - it took them about 10 minutes to totally demolish this tube. And now they are curled up into a ball on top of one another having a big rest, as they are exhausted from manically chewing up the tube. Ah, the life of a gerbil!

Crazy golfers




Took the kids to the park yesterday, as it was fine, despite being very cold, and rather than sit on a bench while they played in the playground (which is very cold for me) I decided to treat them to a game of crazy golf, which at least involves movement. The girls did very well - Olivia even got a couple of holes in one (real ones, not involving dozens of do-over shots); Alex of course, mainly larks about, but he enjoys it. And I got a score of 49, which is fine with me over 18 holes. Means I got a lot of 2's, which is about right.

Grand Central Station


Mostly Alex's creation, with some help from Sarah, especially the bridge.
