How many crunchies for a Milky Way?

Having had a frustrating morning trying to format ‘The Medi’. Weird things are happening when I upload it to publish it. I thought I’d take time out to share some rather bizarre conversations that I have had with my kids over the past couple of weeks. The first is the emergence of an imaginary cellar. In order to access it you have to slowly bend your knees as you walk, until you head disappears below the dining room table. Tom has perfected it, he keeps his back really straight. He regularly goes to fetch things from it!
Then there was the suggestion that Belgium should change its currency to chocolate. So if you went to buy something you could pay with a pack of smarties and get a Mars Bar as change. This led to a rather long debate about which bar would be worth the most and how the currency would work.
By far the most bizarre conversation, was when Alex came home and told me that he needed to go to school dressed as a superhero. My resolve sapped away. More sewing! However, he had decided that he was going to go as that incredibly famous superhero ‘ChessePuff Boy’? IMG_1026 Apparently he can turn things into cheese. So we set to work. He borrowed my orange jumper and we sewed ‘CP’ on the front. We made a mask out of felt and of course, he had a cape. This had cheesepuff and wotsit packets sewn to it, and I have to admit, it was a pretty awesome costume for 10 minutes work. IMG_1027
So there it is. Over the years I’ve learned to just go with the flow. (back to formatting – yawn)
