While he was away.....

.... B went off on his residential school trip to Tattonhall on Friday. M took advantage of this and had Jand C for a sleepover.

As usual they were brilliantly well behaved - and on Saturday morning we went to Otterspool for some fun on the playground.

Along came a spider

M just loved La Princess - and was enchanted by the French Scientist and his tale of baby spiders.... so when she heard about this installation at Exchange Flags she couldn't wait to go and see it. It was a wet evening - but best friend J had been for tea and M wasn't going to wait any longer - so we braved the rain....
...and were just bowled over by the beauty of the shining colour changing spider!

I think we might have to go again so B can see as well!

All Good Gifts

Harvest Festival at Church - a time to thank God for all his blessings

Loves Labours Lost

Saturday was the long awaited girly trip to see David Tennant in Loves Labours Lost - and yes, it was just fantastic.

J made the mad dash to the stage door to get her proramme signed - I walked round, and made it in time for a couple of paparazzi type shots :)

There's always room for some gratuitous production shots....

Formby Beach

With all the wind yesterday and then a night of heavy rain I was NOT expecting such fabulous weather for Sunday. My car battery had been flattened on Friday - so after lunch we jump started the car and went for a rive to recharge it. We ended up at Formby Point - playing on the beach and eating ice creams in the sun!

We found treasures too!

I spy hike

Despite a dreadful eweather forcast, the rain held off this afternoon while the Beavers trekked around Moore Nature Reserve on their I-Spy hike. Our group got around in a great time, but we didin't win because we found the wrong bird box (what a swizz!). B got dreadfully upset - he was desperate for a medal - so it was extremly kind of S (husband of our Cololony Leader) to give B his medal :)

I cannot tell you how happy and excited M is to be chosen as a prefect!
