What time is it? 

Show time! 

Trying to play a “What time is it?” bingo game when you’ve listened to a lot of Hamilton is a tad hard. 

Zoey and Nomi are trying to learn the lyrics to Hamilton (makes the Music Together songs look so simple). They are doing well and I there are worst things we could all be listening to. 

It was a dreich day here but our first day since getting back where no one was plagued by a heavy cold (well bar Alex but he’s in NYC) so we celebrated by staying in our pjs all day. 

We did get out for the girls to fly kites for the first time. Much excitement. 


Other than that there was lots of play, I continued with the big storage reorganize and looked longingly out of the window at the shrubs I bought at the weekend but it was too wet to plant them. Hopefully tomorrow. 




It rained pretty much all day. I was expecting Russell Crowe to show up with his ark. Given the drainage issues with our patio he could have sailed on by. Seriously, how did previous owners not see this and think “Hmm, let’s build some run-off channels because that’s not good.”. It’s just a lot of digging and some stones. Which obviously I’ll be tackling in 2015.


Rain meant lots of squabbling. Cabin fever only temporary broken by big paints and Duplo. Which lead to more squabbling.


I'm too chicken to look at tomorrow's forecast. Hopefully we can bust out.


It was a rainy rainy day here. We got out for puddle jumping and leaf collecting, but we were mainly housebound.


In the late afternoon we played some games. We’ve been playing snap and animal dominos for almost a year, and in the last few weeks the silliness and restlessness has almost faded away (well for the first game at least). If you’ve played games with small children you know what I’m talking about.

Snap with two box fresh two-year-olds was interesting. Supermarket Sweep level of excitement every time they played a card, and the world was over when they ran out of them.

Games of animal and regular dominos go smoother now. They like the clack of the regular dominos and counting the spots.



With Christmas approaching I’m looking for suggestions of what games would they enjoy now and/or grow into over the next year. Any ideas?
