On Monday we were discussing the issue of reaching the top of the carpentry house and how unsafe it is to climb on the house. I told the children we had been meaning to buy a step ladder. One child turned and said " You can get one from Mitre 10 in the building site part". Good idea I thought so we planned to walk to the shop the next day to buy a step ladder. What a long way it is down the railway reserve but it was worth it for fluffy and a cheese scone plus a play in the playground. We also bought new padlocks, some more string and a couple of
very flash watering cans.
Children were great at walking with their partners and holding hands. Some magic walking beans on the way home helped also, alias jelly beans!
