The youngest Locket is no longer a new baby Locket but is now a fully grown 1 year old and this auspicious occasion could not be ignored if presents could be bought and cards written by the other little Lockets!
Fred and Daisy Locket even announced that they couldn't possibly go out for the next adventure in their history project as we had to stay at home and play with Alfie ALL DAY!
(why that involved Fred spending most of the day on the new Super Mario Karts Wii game is something I haven't yet worked out!)
We did get some more of the history project written and cut and stuck in the scrap books
but unfortunately most of the Lockets are feeling a bit manky with some headachy virus so nothing is being done for very long at a time.
My lovely Round House Socks are making me very happy
and Daisy and Fred invented a fantastic new score-keeping system
for their game of cricket
at Granny and Grandpa Biscuit's house earlier in the week.
And this weekend, inspired by Ali's recent post, I have been teaching the children (and Mr Locket!) how to play Rummy - the card game that wiled away far too many hours when I was at university!
Hopefully the children will be updating their history blog too before long so do pop over if you have the time - they love having visitors!
