It has come to my attention that Matthew must be starving. For a long time he has made it his mission in life to grab food at every possible opportunity. As soon as breakfast is finished he is worrying about lunch and then dinner and, of course, the snacks along the way. He has devised a number of ways to climb up to the fruit bowl and empty it of its contents. If there are any stray sweets, drinks or biscuits hidden in the car, it is his duty to search and destroy!

In fact I think the dog has started to copy his swoop and run tactics as she too has started sidling up to see what she can grab and then run off as fast as she can. We had to laugh at the weekend. Matthew came racing in with what looked like food in his hand.
'What's that?'
'Nothing,' he said still munching.
He had only gone beheaded an Aurora eraser, so eager was he to eat he had grabbed it off the side, thinking it was something tasty and bitten it before he had registered what it was!

In other news Lucy is driving us all mad singing Twinkle Twinkle at the top of her voice, only she has changed the words somewhat;
Winkle winkle, ittle star,
How I wonder how are you
Up above the sky high
like a how are you?

Some work to do there methinks!
