The toothless wonder!!

My, my, the tooth fairy has been busy. Two visits in 4 days and now Lochy has finally lost both of his top teeth, much to my amusement! After checking Goody made it safely into the boat yard, and then a play date on another French Cat (the kids not me!) we left Raiatea today for Bora Bora. It seemed such a shame not to go now it was so close and it is unlikely we will be coming this far back next season. And of course, then there is the Wales-Australia rugby match which Mark wanted to see (never mind the NZ-France - foregone conclusion!)
The sail over was a lovely 6 hour 25 knot breeze trip; the kids enjoyed putting together the starwars lego AT-AT walker again, a favourite gift from last Christmas. Having seen how well organised the French boat's lego was, I came back to our boat to whip our lego collection into shape - about 6 hours later and we have instruction manuals with correct lego pieces. I don't think it will take the kids as long to put it together as it did me to sort it, and I am now realising that when you find a tiny bit of lego, you should really put it back in the lego box rather than chuck it in the bin which is what I had been doing. It's pay back time now though as the kids ask "mummy, will you just help me find this one little piece?" and I have to sort through a tray of light gray, dark gray, black or white pieces - why can't the star ward lego have just a splash of colour?!
