Happy Valborg





We have four days off, so I am taking my marking and my washing out to the woods for a short break. There's an old wasboard somewhere in the barn that the girls might find fun. The saga of the washing machines (we have been through three washing machines in three weeks and I have a mountain of dirty laundry) can wait until we return, maybe by then the company involved will have returned my calls and e mails. The fireworks and the bonfire are always held on the last day of April here to welcome back the Spring. Hurray Spring is here!

Idea for the girls: I once did this with the boys - competition to see who can keep their clothes cleanest, longest without having to change.Needs must:)

Nea,
Thanks for the note. You have a great new batch of photos also. I'm glad the sun is out, but it looks pretty cold. We have been going through some colder weather also...at night it goes down to nearly freezing.
Good luck with your washing machine.
Lori

Fortunately Pat, neither of the girls are too fussy about their clothes, I just "forgot" to remind them to put on clean clothes... appart from in the underwear department of course!
My sollution there was to let them shower with their knickers and socks on, which they thought was hilarious.

Thanks Lori, after the second new machine didn't work we changed brands. The shop we dealt with were very heplful, but the company that made the machines that didn't work were impossible. There telephone helpline didn't work nor did their website! It took a lot of time and energy, but I think my sanity is beginning to return;)
