Sitting It Out

I have to confess, I'm feeling little bit tired today. It's not entirely attributable to the heavy cold I've succumbed to, but mostly associated with trying to keep up with the outrageously high energy levels of our (nearly three year old) Speckly-Woo!

Today, the little treasure attained her level one badge at Gym Tots .....and, she executed her first, unaided forward-roll. Obviously, she couldn't wait to demonstrate it to her grandparents when she arrived home. But after the painful realisation that the rug in the lounge was not as forgiving as a foam mat, we were limited to only one performance.

There followed, a lot more activity. Not wishing to take a chance on her regular human climbing frame (me), due to health and safety issues, she decided to assault Mummy instead. Then we were treated to the kind of 'wee-wee' dance you can expect occasionally from a child that's 99% potty-trained.

Eventually, I was prised off the sofa to play hide and seek around the house with Mary (sometime astronaut of the rag-doll variety).

It occurred to me, whilst writing this post, that another small offering of benches might be in order.
