Sam and Holly, Malachi and Orlaith arrived today to spend a few days towards the end of their UK trip.
Malachi is a great reader, so his first visit was to the library from which I was happy to pass on to him a selection of books.
Lexulous is the Scrabble-like game I play on line. He wanted to challenge me, so he and Sam needed to work out how to load it onto Sam’s device.
First they operated together.
Mal continued on his own.
One of the advantages of having your opponent across the room is that you can give him the eye when you have him in trouble.
Orlaith broke her arm falling from a climbing frame in Snowdonia, and has become a dab hand at working with just one. Take drawing for example. As she said,0 it was a good thing she hadn’t broken her drawing hand.
She was also able to take over the Lexulous game on Sam’s mobile phone.
Meanwhile Malachi was quick to learn the Bookworm game on Jackie’s p.c.
After this Sam took his son off to the library to practice his violin playing. The music was really very pleasant, as it drifted through the kitchen.
This left Jackie free to help Orlaith build a tower
which, with the addition of the man himself in rodent form and black and white sheep as lions, she announced to be Nelson’s Column.
If there are any glaring errors in this post, my excuse is that the tower, the mice, the sheep, and the numbers board were all transported to my desk where I was encouraged to play with them.
This evening we dined on Hordle Chinese Take Away fare, supplemented by fish fingers, cauliflower cheese, and strawberries and cream. Holly and I finished the malbec, Jackie drank Peroni, and Sam drank Doom Bar.
