At first it looks like a lovely picture of her and Benny, then she explained it a little better to me. Benny (on the left) is crying 'we we we', Rebe has her hand to her head and she said she is shaking it in despair because all the little lines between them are Benny pooping! I love Rebe's art :-)
On Monday mornings two bin lorries come up our road, they arrive exactly at breakfast time and Benny loves to watch them. Of late he has started playing bin lorries quite often. I think this happened when he saw that there was a space to stand on or at behind his chair, just like on a bin lorry. The scews are the buttons to press to make the bin lift up and empty. It can be a little frustrating as Joa keeps wandering off when he's supposed to be emptying bins...you just can't get decent employees these days!
On Saturday morning I strapped Joa to my back and the pair of us went off for a ramble. Oh it was blissful. I could walk at my own pace, there was no sound but the song of birds and the waves against the cliffs.

a gorgeous blue butterfly. Being alone I could approach it quietly and have the pleasure of watching her stretch her delicate wings in the sunshine, warming herself, perhaps for the first time this year.
We spent all weekend outdoors;

Also in this new acquisition.
At the top of the road are some 'big boys' that Rebe and Benny have befriended. Whilst playing up near their house today, their daddy came out and offered to bring this playhouse down to them which his boys had out grown. Oh the delight. They have spent the rest of the day cleaning and playing in it . It was a little too windy for Joa to be out all day so he watched from the window. Another 'boys' game is being here in Joa's house. Joa has taken to going under the table a lot of the time. Really he's trying to eat all the dropped bits of food that I haven't managed to sweep up, but Benny thinks that he is playing 'house' and will more often than not go and join him. I think these two are going to be great buddies :-)
