On Sunday, it snowed big fat fluffy flakes for all of ten minutes, taking us completely by surprise after swmming lessons.

On Monday, Humuhumu brought home the Mother's Day present she'd been working on in Arts & Crafts club after school over the course of several weeks. I wasn't allowed to wait until I got home to open it.

On Tuesday, Humuhumu designed a character for Red Nose Day. He had wonky eyes and a lot of teeth, and his name was Pointy.

On Wednesday, Humuhumu drew a picture of me and her walking a cat.

On Thursday, I forgot to take a photo.

On Friday, I was treated to a posh lunch by a grateful academic.

On Saturday, Keiki experienced what would appear to be the most enjoyable activity for a four-year-old. We went to Abbey Pumping Station at Leicester, where they have a setup of a cutaway toilet and the associated drainage in transparent tubes. And, of course, a pretend poo, which you can flush and then watch it take its journey to the pipes.

Humuhumu enjoyed it too.

Pretend poo! XP Naturally it was a hit! (That does sound like a cool exhibit, actually. I wonder if it's likely to encourage inquisitive children to flush things down the toilet at home, or relocates the curiosity to the safe experimental toilet. Hm...)

It doesn't seem to have had any impact on Keiki & Humuhumu's views on the toilet at home, probably because it doesn't have a transparent u-bend. Heh.

Just wait until Humuhumu tries to walk Telstar in real life ... ;-)

Lovely Mother's Day flowers.

Haha, she wouldn't dream of it. She's quite respectful of Telstar.

I was impressed with the flowers! They took some careful crafting.

I've just been reminded of an incident when I was wee when I accidentally knocked a pile of coins off the cistern into the lavy pan. What I want to know is why my mother had a pile of coins on the cistern. Was she conducting an experiment into the likelihood of them being tipped into the lavy pan by a boisterous child? Anyway, the lesson is: never leave piles of coins on cisterns when your offspring are around!

That does seem like a grave miscalculation. Lesson noted, thanks! :D

Not gonna lie, I'm a grown adult, and I would enjoy flushing a pretend poo down that loo :D
