Yesterday I took the boys' for a wee adventure. I had a small photography assignment to do for a friend's new digital magazine. She needed pictures of sheep. Not just any sheep mind, Perendales. As my friend is sadly city bound, I was only too eager to help. But where to find Perendales? Easy right? - Wrong!

"We shear the sheep & take off all their wool so Mummy's work can then making it into yarn for Mummy's knitting"
"Oh" ponders Louis "You make Louis a jumpers from these sheep Mummy"
Oh to cute!

However it has been pretty rough time for Dr. Phil & I over the last three weeks. Firstly Dr. Phil lost his younger brother very suddenly & unexpectedly. It has been horrific for his parents & investigations into his death at this stage are still ongoing. Also Louis first couple of weeks at school were not the smooth transition that any of us had hoped for. So the decision has been made to return Louis to pre-school for another 6 months to help further ready him for being a big school boy. He's actually really relieved, whilst he loved 'Big Boys school', he confided in his pre-school teacher that it was 'really hard & they try to make him eat food he doesn't like' - not easy for a wee man who is the fussiest eater on the planet & the school provides the meals. That's boys' for you! I am just hoping that the family gets a gentler few months ahead -we could use the break.
