Colours, Crazy Experiments and A Birthday

1   The colours in the garden are gorgeous at the moment.

2   Our Grandchildren just love it when Aunty M comes to stay at the same time as them as she always has fun experiments to entertain us all with. First it was the mint into a coca cola bottle which makes a brilliant fountain and then shooting the empty bottles off as rockets using a compressor! Great fun for all the family! Look carefully in the sky to see how high one of the bottle-rockets went.

Look how high it has gone!

3   It was our beloved Choir leader’s birthday today so T and I made buns as her birthday cake and I took them to singing this evening. Claire was delighted.
