Glass

It’s not often that I’m pleased when I see the Boy shattering glass…

We went to Langham Glass today. They have a rolling glass blowing demonstration (we watched the man make a glass penguin with black and white glass, very cool) and a few options for getting involved.

The girl and I twirled some very hot glass to spread some colour through it, then stamped a tealight shape in said hot glass while it was in a mould to make a tealight holder.

The boy, however, went straight for the “blow a glass bubble until it shatters” option.  That was also extremely cool…

I hate to be childish, but, I want a go!

Restful

Too often, the temptation on holiday is to pack in as much as you can.

We managed a swim this morning, but pretty much constant rain since lunch time (roast chicken cooked in the holiday villa, yum) has kept us inside this afternoon. It’s been fantastically relaxing.

Currently Grandma is reading, Grandpa and the Girl are doing sudoko (again) and the husb is on his computer. Uncle P and Aunty D are bathing their girls and the Boy is I know not where, but is at least being quiet.

I couldn’t ask for more right now.

Bubbles

We do like a nice plastic bubble to stick our head in at the aquarium…

Holiday mode has been activated.  No rest for Grandpa though!

Missing

I made the Littles tidy their rooms today, because I’m mean (according to them).

I got my “nice mummy” status back when I told them I would reward them with a trip to the lovely Dizzy’s Diner for tea. Dizzy’s is one of our favourite allergy friendly places to eat.  I then boosted myself to “awesome mummy” status by telling them we could go to Love A Slice for pudding.  I’ve recently discovered that they too are pretty fab on the allergy friendly front.

You’ll notice a distinct lack of the Husb.  Not because he didn’t want to, but he’s working away at the moment.  None of us are loving that, although the Girl’s drink seems to be going part way to fixing that!

Selfie-ish

He still hasn’t quite got the hang of the “selfie”.

Forgetful

It’s going to be quite tricky: posting a picture a day, when I keep forgetting to take pictures…

Today, for example, I had loads of opportunities at the 5k that I ran for the Firefighters Charity (which was fab – we ran through the Rotherhithe Tunnel and ended up at Billingsgate Market).  We also went to a party this afternoon to help christen my lovely friend’s new garden where I could have taken some good photos.

Sadly, all I have is this very poor shot of the race finish, taken from a flyover I had to walk over to get home.

It’s a picure, but not a great one!
