Charlie bear comes to stay

I'm Charlie the Class 1 Bear and this week I have been to stay with Euan and his very loud family.  I was very lucky to have some time to myself as Euan's Mummy kept forgetting to take me with the family on their trips (too many people and as I'm only little and very quiet I got left behind). 
We found a lovely Charlie Bear bag when we were getting some new school shoes. I will be putting that on my Christmas present list!

We had quite a bit of snow, Euan and I thought it was a bit cold and wet and didn't really enjoy playing in it. We loved the hot chocolate to warm us up though!
Euan and I made a huge Lego city, I was careful not to go too close to the Lego dragons as they were a bit scary.
Euan was very kind and let me try all sorts of lovely food. He even shared his milkshake with me!

Euan's favourite film is Star Wars, he talks about it ALL the time.  I watched it with him and I'm hooked too. When I grow up I want to be an Ewok and Euan is going to be Yoda.

I enjoyed going to Euan's swimming lesson, he let me borrow his goggles so I didn't get water in my eyes.  

I had another great week of adventures and I'm looking forward to meeting the next person from Class 1.

SkyWatch Friday - it's what's on the inside that counts

This week has be brought to us by the colour 'GREY'.  No rain, no frost, no snow, no ice but also no sun!  So here's a taste of spring from valentine flower (picked up by me at the supermarket!).
Get some colour in your life at SkyWatch Friday.

PS Euan's impossible questions of the week "What are dogs made of?", "Why do grown-ups have Mummy and Daddys?"  and "Does Yoda like God?" (this last one comes from the obsession with Star Wars and the current school topic!)

SkyWatch Fridayish - bring it on!

The first proper snow of the year gave us a chance to use out Christmas sledges.

There's always one pulling a funny face - this is Euan's Sonic Hedgehog smile!

It was hot work, note the stripping going on!
Sledge train!
Visit SkyWatch Friday for some warmth!
PS We've been forecast another snow drop, bring on round 2!!

Playing with words

OK, so I'm late to Ali Edward's One Little Word party (again).  Every January she invites people to start listening, looking, and being open to the possibilities of a new word.  You live with it. You invite it into you life. You let it speak to you. You might even follow where it leads.  In 2011 my word was 'reflect', as the year panned out I was forced into lots and lots of reflecting.  

This year I felt like I needed to break through the reflections and have some fun. So fresh in for 2012 is..........
I've started the year well, leaving behind the ironing mountain and pulling out the board games, ignoring the vacuum and grabbing the sledge, turning my back on the bathrooms and jumping on to Just Dance. Happy, smiley, healthy 2012!

Remembering the Chinese whispers and other children's games

Today patch was telling me about a programme he watched. It was about the men who'd built a bridge. It took them 7 years and they were just packing the ladders away. King Henry 8th opened it and they gave it a gold badge. Turns out he was talking about old-time kids TV programme Blue Peter visiting the Forth Bridge, built 120 years ago and opened by King Edward 7th and it did indeed get a gold Blue Peter badge.  I love that the Kings all end up being Henry 8th - not a nice man but very memorable!

We've had the first snow of the year today. Couldn't keep the biggies inside but despite learning about the Arctic at school and banging on about snow facts for weeks, Eu lasted approximately 3 minutes. He's a true Brit and doesn't do weather.
Staying in means he gets to spend more time with Charlie the class bear. We've been trying to find interesting places for photos. So far managed the shoe shop and the supermarket (C- for this project I fear! Everyone else has done pages of very highbrow places)

I've just found this very un-PC map - made me laugh.....

SkyWatch Friday - out in the cold?

It's been a freezing week made bearable by the beautiful sunny days we've been having.  I didn't keep my gloves off for long when taking these photos.

So following on from last job news, I guessing a big fat no as it's been a week since the interview.  Youngest sons unanswerable question "why is bird poo white?".  

Look for some warmth at SkyWatch Friday.
