Jelly fish stings and other things
02 May 2011 | Prickly Bay, Grenada
So, what's new? Lochy is onto his 5th Harry Potter book. I guess if you are going to have obsessions, it's nice to have replaced the wii with reading. Mia is making a dragon book - lots of dragons on our boat at the moment, with both kids loving the 'how to train your dragon' series of books (the film not a patch on the book in my humble opinion!) Whit has been given a list to go through ( the purple list). He started well, by scrubbing the bottom of the boat, a job which was reluctantly transferred from the pink list (can't believe he stole that job off me!) and has been introduced to Hedley Le Maitre's "Take that Grouville" to get a cultural taste of Jersey. Much to our delight he can't get the words out of his head. We'll make him a bean yet!
Mark has been making rudders and I have been trying to get the kids back into school. We took Finn and Oscar from Xicale to the beach this afternoon where all the kids had great fun jumping off the pontoons, until Finn got stung by a jellyfish. He's a tough little cookie (unlike my delicate two, who would have let the whole beach know if they'd been stung!) who nonchalently strolled out of the sea to tell me he'd been stung. The dive school next door gave us some vinegar to put on and then I delivered him back to his boat, apologising to his parents for the fact that he had growing welts on his arm and stomach!
An early night for all, as a trip to the local hardware store beckons tomorrow for the next important job on the purple list - making a potato cannon!!
