Little J is now the big NINE, just one digit away from doubles. No fancy celebrations, just cake and construction on his Halloween Birthday.
Here he sits on the new roof of his playhouse reading the latest toy catalog and contemplating ways to bribe me into a trip to the toy store to spend the £10 his Great Uncle has sent from across the pond :-) (Unfortunately no currency exchange services within zillion miles from of house, so he'll be dealing with the "Bank of Mum" and another £10 note will end up in my Grandfathers tea caddy)
Mr VW spend what was a rather chilly day replacing the roof on his clubhouse. It didn't fair so well after the mountains of snow we received last year. Speaking of the white stuff, I saw our first flurries up on the mountain at work last friday! Little later than last year, when the white stuff arrived 2 weeks prior to pumpkin day.
I provided construction supervision from a comfortable chair with a warm dog whilst adding rows to my granny stripe.
