Very pleasant visit from HE friends P, M and J, for lunch and a good long afternoon play for the kids. J and L. completely trashed a room, then helped to pick everything up again. They made some lovely Fimo creations, and built some splendid devices out of octons. P. played wild games with the boys for part of the time and slipped away to send emails to her cousin when this all got out of hand.
We all enjoyed watching Strictly Come Dancing in the evening, when Allie got home from work.
A. had to work again, so I set off with the kids for their cousin B's birthday party at a large soft play centre on the other side of town. The kids dealt with the somewhat frantic atmosphere well, and nobody was seriously injured (!)
Spent the evening internet shopping, watching Scooby Doo, and playing cards.
