Another reasonable bedtime turned into a read-fest till I went up just before 1am and took the book away and turned off the light, at least she slept for the next 9 hours.
So eventually we got out as we'd planned a bit of beach combing for shells and stones.
She was collecting and paddling
and getting totally soaked :-)
Perfect weather for it.
Washing and drying.
Brush out all loose stuff and
coat with a diluted pva wash.
We used a render repair cement.
Our project is to pretty up the patio brick wall that has been affected by frost and some of the bricks have lost their facings. R made a very good job of decorating two bricks and we'll see how they dry out before doing any more.
In the evening she went bowling with Granddad but just as a spectator as it's a league night.
R's conversations often start with an awkward question that it's really difficult to answer because some things we just accept and mostly it's personal opinion, but good to stop and think eh?
" ...and another thing, I know manners like not eating with your mouth open is necessary because that's just disgusting, but why is it rude to have your elbows on the table? "
"...and another thing, I can understand saying thank you is good but why do we need please if we've asked for something nicely is just an extra word?"
" ...and another thing, why are old people always embarrassed about their age? "
