Hazel found some woodworm in a wicker basket in the front room and so has been on a woodworm hunt ever since. She's scared they may have got into other wickerwork so a pile of baskets now all bagged up in the garden, ready to go to the tip.
The video was standing on one wicker hamper so now we have utilised an old record player cabinet for the time being. Most TV tables are pretty hideous so looking out for something we can live with and that is not edible!
Having several blogs on the go now makes it harder to update this one so I must try and remember what has happened over the last few days.
James came over yesterday to play with Archie which was all going well until they stated to play with spud guns in the garden. James went upstairs to shoot ou the open window and he accidentally knocked over some of Archie's lego models of Hogwarts on the window sill. I though the roof was coming down! A great avalanche of lego bricks came crashing to the back yard. I rushed outside expecting to see James hanging from the guttering but he was looking rather embarressed- poking his round red face out of the window.
The boot sales on Sunday were a bit of a disapointment with only a video of Austin Powers to show for it. It was very hot again so were quite glad to get back to our nice cool house.
Hazel and Archie went to queue at Smiths for the new Harry Potter book at midnight last Friday (did I say?). Only a few people there at first being taunted by some drunks coming back from the chip shop. Hazel decided to move the car as the car park was a bit isolated and only three cars in it. When they came back the queue had grown considerably and by the time the doors opened it stretched for 200 yards or more and the drunks were in a minority and keeping their distance incase they were attacked by little girls in pointy hats and broomsticks!
