Peaceful interlude

Calmed by yesterday's fish and exotic adventures, Shark takes control of the Ten Minute Cookbook and prepares lunch.

I settle Tiger down in front of a DVD of Ben Hur which I call research in preparation for her next animated movie adventure set in the Roman arena, and Squirrel amuses herself making dresses for the hand-stitched dolly I have nicknamed Frankenstein due to the resemblance.

Two peaceful hours later we are treated to this:

Tomato and basil in filo pastry boats

Mango tarte

A quiet day, with no screaming to report. We all resolve to travel to London without each other as soon as possible.

You mean you are all going to travel to London separately? Lunch looks nice, but then I happen to be very hungry. I am glad peace reigned in the household today.

Nothing to do with this post, but when I look at it in Firefox your blog has got editing icons all over it. I'm pretty sure that I shouldn't be seeing those. It's fine in Safari. Weird. Thought I'd mention it :-)

p.s. they've gone now.

Love the 'concentration' look on her face, the escaped tongue is always such a help at times like this ;-) The food looks good too!

I'm really glad you had some calmer moments! btw, can you juggle the bedroom arrangements round a little? or are they all in one room?

It took us awhile to get the combinations right, but OH it's made a difference!
