Cordelia made a lava explosion with her bath bomb kit which she dyed pink with colouring for maximum effect.
Then, after I had spent an hour cleaning, dusting, hoovering and discovering lost toys and DS cases under the sofa (my kind of therapy-the cleaning type!) The children brought down their huge Littlest Pet Shop collection down and spread out in the newly clean and tidy living room. And played for a good hour and a half before lunch! The first time that has happened all week :-)
After lunch I took Ruben to meet up with his friend D, I thought a little time away just him and I might do him some good. I was right, he had a great time scooting and running around with his friend. I took him in to the cafe (which is a treat that I can't usually afford to do when I have all four of the children) and he picked some juice and a chocolate muffin. Happy face. Then we went back to the playground and he burnt off lots more energy. We got home just in time for tea and dessert kindly prepared by the girls. Seems they had a very fun afternoon of baking without mummy interfering! Total control of the kitchen :-) That and some Top Model drawing with their new Glamour book (Piper)
And wedding book (Cordelia)
Cup cakes in cute tea set silicone cases that Cordelia was given for her birthday.
Here is hoping tomorrow continues as a calmer day......
