Photos I find on my camera...

Often, what I find is photos of various toys arranged in various ways. Once there was one of a bunch of skittles arranged in piles by colour. Tonight's offering is a bit more interesting - he was being done up by his sister. A patient, tolerant boy!

Daddy Panda is naughty

In our house, Daddy Panda is frequently the instigator of all manner of trouble. Here you can see him with the Family of Panda - and Lucky the Monkey and a penguin sidekick. They are planning the great chocolate Easter Egg Heist...
...and here he is, hiding under the sofabed with his booty. Bad Daddy Panda.

Easter Eggs

Hoorah for Waitrose, who were selling pastel shelled eggs this week - in themselves, they were mostly a kind of boring pale grey blue, but they were very light in colour, which means that, unlike our normal dark brown eggs, they can be dyed with food-colouring. I hard-boiled them yesterday, and today, we have brightly coloured eggs. Hoorah. Of course, now I'll be eating hard boiled eggs for a week - well, Sarah likes them and between them, Olivia and Alex like them - she only eats the yolk, he only eats the white. At least they like the opposite bit to one another!

Prize rabbit

At school, they have been selling raffle tickets to raise money for NSPCC - 20p per ticket, with a variety of Easter Goodies as the loot. My son, the chocoholic, was very pleased to win this lovely specimen, though I'm fairly sure it won't last until Easter - it barely lasted until after dinner! And it's only strict regulation that will keep it from being eaten in one go, I think.
