Happy Pancake Day!

For pancake day we invited our friends over from 4kids2guineapigs. We had a busy morning and even managed to get some biscuits made for a snack before they arrived. No photo's of pancakes because we were too busy eating them! We had ours with jam, nutella and golden syrup-yum :)

 After lunch Cordelia and her friend wanted to make gloop with cornflour. It is a weird thing, and something common within the HE world I think, mainly for scientific purpose. When you roll it it goes into a solids and when you leave it be it goes back to being a liquid (I'm pretty sure there is a far more scientific explanation for this by the way!) It was extremely messy and it got everywhere. I think we will do this again but maybe outside in something larger than a baking bowl! Still, the girls had fun.
 Whilst they were here they played: Monster High, Barbie's, watched Harry Potter on Youtube, introduced their friends to Animal Jam on the PC, the boys watched Walking with Dinosaurs dvd, played dinosaurs and monsters. Bec and I meanwhile chatted and drank Mochas! A good day :)

We also had a lovely surprise in the post! We have missed our Friday friends over at Lighting Fires (if you haven't checked their blog out, make sure you do, its lovely!) whilst they have been on holiday and Piper, Cordelia and Ruben were so excited to each receive 2 postcards from R & M! They immediately began to write letters back. Love it when they want to write without me saying anything! I love watching and reading their handwriting, never fails to make me smile :)

 Cordelia stuck hers on her radiator! We are super jealous as they were in our favourite place!

    They are called Non-Newtonian fluids ;)

  2. I never knew there was a name for that either lol.

    Clearly distance doesn't matter when it comes to getting snail-mail because Ruben & Mason were really excited to get letters and are intending to write back at some point. I miss physical mail, more effort but beats an email any day!

    1. Bella,

      Maybe we should get them to write each other regularly? That way they will get handwriting practice without any force haha! x
