Hubs unpacked the Wii (yes, we do take it camping) and set it up downstairs for my son. He can now play Wii while I'm in the kitchen, so we're not all spread out around the house. He's been playing MarioCart and Lego Indiana Jones and getting better with practise. He gets frustrated easily if he doesn't win, so this new-found patience is a good sign.

We've spent a few half days at our allotment, weeding and harvesting our vegetables. The children love running around the fields that are nearby, exploring and picking berries. They're safe because I can see them from the allotment, they know not to wander too far, and they frequently return with tales of rabbits and birds they've seen, how many berries they've picked (they know what they can and can't eat), and what strange noises they've heard (crickets, or the combine harvester).

Today we're off to my friend's house for lunch and to play (her children are the same ages as my two), then we're visiting the Japanese Koi Company in Henlow to buy fish food and filters (and gaze in awe at all the animals, my son desperately wants a lizard).
