This week has flown...

 After taking Tweeny girl to school on Tuesday Small boy and I had some time to kill until his toddler group began. We popped into two of the five charity ships on the tiny high street where we live. I managed to pick up a Gap waterproof jacket for Tweeny (£5 Yes expensive but good nick and she desperately needs a light weight waterproof that will fit over her clothes.), a pair of jeans for Small boy-75p, a mini tool set for £1 for boy and he got to choose a dragon from the 50p toy box. I snaffled from the sale rail  - all priced 50p and £1 a jumper, top and material type trench coat. 

In theory small boy was supposed to use his new tool kit complete with spanner and screwdriver to help me finish off the trampoline. It kinda worked for a bit but he soon wanted to  use the grown up tools. Nevertheless the trampoline is good to go. Just need some foam tubes to cover the metal poles that hold the net up. 

In other news we have done the following:

Lots of dog walks,
