Dinosaur, Onions and Boots to Order

14 Sep

1   The post brought a small package this morning – a delightful present of a Growing Dinosaur from a friend for J our Grandson. He will love this which we will have great  with on his next visit, maybe half-term or Christmas as he started school this term!  Thank you very much L and B, so thoughtful and generous and much appreciated.

    We need to pull our onions too, if it would just stop raining here for a few days. We had a month of drought and then constant rain. The booties are great.

      We got ours just in time. We pulled them a little earlier than we would have done as we were going away and are so glad that we did as it has rained ever since we came home! Hope you manage to get yours up soon. 🙂

      GrandBaby B wore the boots all day. Her Mum was very pleased to have some in the bigger size and I was pleased that they fit! Now need to start on the next size up as GrandBaby B is growing so fast. 🙂

      We really look forward to putting the Dinosaur in water and waiting for it to DOUBLE in size! Think J, 4 and 3/4 will love it! 🙂
