Guy Fawkes Night 2005

Friday night we joined loads of our friends at a local school for a fireworks display. We had fun running around in the dark, eating hotdogs and watching the display. Saturday night we had Mum and Dads friends over and we climbed on the roof to watch fireworks, we lit our own mini bonfire and we had fun watching our £10 box of fireworks go up in sparks. Most fun was had playing with the hundreds of sparklers - making pretty patterns and trying to burn down our hedge.

As you do...

These two boys decided it would be a good idea to go for a walk in the park in the dark wearing tinted swimming goggles...

4 weeks ago we bought a 3month old Boa Constrictor. 2 weeks later we lost it. 2 weeks after that we found it, sitting on top of the wooden train track!! What a surprise for Daddy, since we all thought Bruce had slithered out the window and was gone for good. We are very happy to have him back in his vivarium, watching him move from log, to branch to bonsai, feeding him baby mice and excercising him through our fingers.

Africa at the British Museum

Today Samuel went to the British Museum with his class and I went on my first "excursion" since I was at school. What fun! We stayed in the three basement rooms showing beautiful african artifacts. Samuel had to draw 2 things that he saw in each room, they especially liked drawing a tree of life made out of gun parts, very symbolic. We MUST go to the British Museum more!!

These young pirates joined a few young witches, a skeleton and other scary things to collect sweets from the neighbours. They were very happy to have collected the mostest sweets EVER.
