*little miss fix it!*

Anja is far happier playing outside and being busy than stuck in in front of the television, so whilst Ed and I were slaving over garage doors and giant bags of gravel, she helped herself to grandad's very old tool box, and set about 'fixing' her bike, chatting away to herself all the while. Do you like the pirate trousers - she dressed herself this morning...

The latest Letterbox catalogue plopped through our letterbox this morning, and Anja has spied her perfect gift - she is absolutely beside herself at the thought of one day possibly owning such a beauty as this:

tool box

Anja's idea of paradise in a box!!!

I had seen this very same tool set before last Christmas, but the age guide says "3+ though more suited to 6+" - Anja will be 5 in February, but I think that under careful supervision she'd be quite safe with this. I think it might well be going on Father Christmas's list - apologies for mentioning the man with the big white beard this early in September...

Ed and I have made brill progress in the garden today, so mum and I are going plant shopping tomorrow morning to get some grasses to put in amongst the gravel; I think it is going to look great, but I'll hold off posting any photos until it's finished.

Freya has had to write about herself for her first piece of homework in year 2; we were told that, across the week, the children should spend no more than 20 minutes on homework, so with that in mind, I was determined to let her go at her own pace, and not to write it for her. This is what she wrote: "My name is Freya. I am 6. I have a sosig dog and she is called Rudi. I have blond her and blowe eyes. I have a sister called Anja. She is 4. I have two cusuns and they are called Jacob and Caleb." I can't ask for much more than that, can I??!!!

Anja looks so proud fixing her bike. My girlies would love that toolbox.

I love Freya's description of herself especially the 'blowe eyes'.

Oh cute is what Freya wrote, you should use this on a BOM for her. Anja looks lovely, I'm sure she will be very excited to get that fantastic pressy off Santa, I'd quite like one myself, can you ask Santa for one for me as well please. Can't wait to see pics of the garden.

Love the look of that toolbox. I always wanted to buy stuff like that for my two but with parents like us they would have been clueless what to do with them!
