I haven't mentioned the weather much.  It's been much more interesting than usual.  Lots of hail, thunder, fabulous downpours.  We've spent a lot of time looking out of the window, enjoying the drama of it.
It has meant much less time outside.  We got to the skate park this morning, and planned some time there and at the playground further into the park, but we got rained on so came home again.

Before that, we'd been to the pet shop to buy some pond weed for the tadpoles.  We looked at the fish and reptiles, rabbits and guinea pigs, gerbils and hamsters.  We're in the market for a new hamster as Whitey died a couple of weeks ago.  I think we'll get one next week.

At home the kids checked on the tadpoles and gave them their new plant.  They're noticeably bigger now, but no sign of any back legs yet.
I saw this great idea the other day on pinterest, where you put yarn out for the birds to use in their nests.  Meg helped put the yarn in the feeder cage, and we hung it outside.  I really hope the birds use some of it.

  1. Lovely idea with the yarn. I have a tip of a garden and the sparrows regularly come and steal bits and pieces.
