is the new shop-bought.  Nothing beats homemade playdough when you're stuck for ideas, Charlie is hugging your legs and emitting ultra-high pitched noises and there's stuff to be done.

A quick Google, a trip to the stores (for the missing ingredients - industrial quantities of salt and colouring) and we're there.  Result = 45 minutes of fascination...  sorted.

The end must be coming...

when I read this on the BBC website.

"... nearly one fifth of parents of children aged 0-4 years have bought a television for their baby's bedroom."

We missed Charlie...

But had a good time :)

8 days in Majorca over Easter was just what we needed.  We were a worried that we'd miss Mr C too much (but not worried at all that he'd miss us, he had his Grannies looking after him and would be too tired to miss us!).  In the end all worked perfectly.
