Ten on Tuesday: 1,2,3,4,5...once I caught a fish alive

1. Young sir has learnt to use the cd player, turning it on and all. Even switching it from the ipod to a cd...genius or digital native according to a theory

2. The downside of this new found skill is that I have silly nursery rhymes going around and around in my head all day long. Before, when we were in charge of dj:ing, nursery rhymes were a treat, now they seemed to be turned on every time I leave the room...there is only so many times you can listen to '1,2,3,4,5, once I caught a fish alive' and 'Miss Polly had a dolly that was sick, sick, sick'!

3. I once did actually catch a fish alive, a tiny little plaice. When we were little I remember spending hours trying to catch fish in the lakes, running madly and belly flopping on them with no avail. This poor guy had been washed up by the tide and was left in a tiny pool as the tide started to go out again

4. Sometimes is easy to loose perspective in the middle of being a mum and this article reminded me how precious and privileged it is to be one

5. With the lighter evenings young sir has been playing outside with his little friend next door. Yesterday they were playing hide and seek, counting to ten and taking turns to run and hide behind the same tree each time

6. I made rhubarb ice cream with my trusty ice cream maker the other day and it was delicious.

7. I have discovered that young sir's idea of beautiful hair is sliders (or hair pins) - the more the better. I've got a little tin of sliders that I had far too long time ago (including hello kitty pair and one with teddies) that he has found so on Saturday I went to sainsbury's with teddy bear pin in my hair.

8. Young sir also complemented my hair after putting a collection of hair pins in by saying it is beautiful, just like his little friend next door's hair, bless!

9. Bathroom is advancing, still no shower but tiling is pretty much done and tomorrow is going to be the day when the amazing husband will find out if he cut the pipes for the shower the right length...

10. I need to plant some seeds on the allotment this weekend, so far we'll have some pretty flowers and potatoes if I don't get my act together
