Taking all their mess out of the sitting room and leaving it looking like this?
- okay then, 50p!
- okay then, 50p!
So what prompted this industry and money making fervour?
Crazy Bones - 95p for a pack of 3 - the latest "craze" and muggins-mummy has agreed to let the children collect them - but they have to earn them and they worked really hard.
Here they are enjoying playing with the fruits of their labours
and with a nice tidy sitting room again, Mr Locket and I were able to sit back and relax too.
Child Labour? Brilliant! So it's a real shame that all the local shops have sold out of Crazy Bones and don't know when they will be getting them in again - I could have got them tidying upstairs this weekend if only I had more bribes!
Staying on the Little Locket/Locket Household theme I thought I would share this with you
Goldfinches in our garden! I'm so excited - I think they are nesting next door and coming to us for seed and the fibres from the hanging basket liners for their nest.
One evening this week I needed to distract Fred because he was upset about something so I got him to look out for the birds in the back garden with Dorothy's bird book so he could look up the birds he saw.
He really enjoyed watching for them and showed off his reading skills too and he has carried on bird watching after school each evening.
When I was getting ready for a craft stall last night he came and asked me for something for his "nest" but I was rushing around and didn't really pay attention (I know! Bad mummy!!!) But I was really touched this morning when I went outside and found this on the lawn
a special bird's nest to encourage them to come so Fred could watch them - complete with bird seed round the edges!
And I'll leave you today with a photo of the young man himself doing his sewing - so cute!
Hope you all have a great weekend - I spent the morning staking out the postie as I am expecting 3 parcels but all he brought was one for next door - meany! - but that means there should be some yummy post tomorrow!!!
P.S. I had a quite successful evening last night at the craft fair but have some new stock that will be appearing in my Etsy shop over the weekend so watch this space!
