Domestic news

Filed under: Uncategorized — scotsabroad @ 5:54 pm

I don’t have a visit to post about but just some everyday news of the things that the boys have been doing recently. I am conscious that when they do speak on Skype they don’t really tell you a lot. For half day at the weekend  Andy goes to work; the boys just play at home until he comes home. I potter about doing all those jobs that need doing. I’m sure I don’t need to explain further.

 The boys both went to ‘Bubble’ shows at school last week and so decided to give me a bubble show of their own at the weekend. Just as I took this picture a huge bubble on Cairo’s hand burst.



Because I am working part time (not sure if I have ever mentioned this before!) I get to collect Lucas from nursery three times a week at 1pm. Sometimes I have things to do in the kitchen and he just loves guddling there. He squeezed four oranges  to get this glass full of juice – but then wouldn’t drink it as he didn’t like the taste.

Of course guddling can have different consequences. Today Lucas was making nests for his tortoise with the paper from the hole punch. I warned him that if he made a mess he would have to get the hoover out and, sure enough, he had to get the hoover out. Perhaps I put the idea in his head, what do you think? How happy does he look doing this?!



 Judy and Alec always give super presents to the boys(of course, you all do). Lucas was given much played with meccano for his birthday and Cairo got a wooden model kit. He has started it and is very conscientiously gluing a section at a time and holding it in place for 30 seconds.  It is a work in progress still but will look great when he finishes it. In this picture he is wearing his pyjamas!


The final piece of news is rather fantastic as far as I am concerned. Cairo likes a new food. The photo tells the story.


P.S. I took a lot of photos of the flowers in the garden one afternoon when the gardener was here. I shall post some of them later in the week but thought you might like to know that we have a mango tree.




  1. Absolutely loved your domestic blog – pictures are great and so are the little stories for each one. I will copy and take over to Gran.
