Allotments and AK47s?!
How can it be raining when there are no clouds? In fact we have finally got a hose-pipe to water the plants with, much to M's delight. DH is scared to purchase any lettuces from the supermarket now lest I am offended!
and the unidentified plants have now flowered, leaving me no clearer as to what they are. S thinks they should be taken down with the secateurs, but they are not unpleasant-looking, so I've let thenm be. Anyone know what they are??
Lettuce and more mint (tried to pick it before it flowered)
and now drying the mint out, and as it seems to be a constant 26C plus in the kitchen, this seems as good a place as any.
S's using youtube instructions to make a paper AK47 gun. Not exactly politically correct crafting, but a creative and non-computer games passing of time. Much patience was needed, as dozens of pieces of sticky tape were required.
and then some painting.. 'No I don't need any help, no not even in destroying it,' ta-da!!
to my world with 4 boys (13, 11,8, 3 years old) and my 5 year old daughter. We are doing our best to learn in the 'school of life' in English, but due to bureaucratic nightmares, education in Swedish is mostly conventional. Any (constructive) comments most welcome..
