This weekend saw our little man turn five. Wow, doesn’t time fly when you’re having fun. Only feels like yesterday we carried him home. Now he’s becoming all independent and strong willed.

A weekend of fun and games ensued. Saturday, family fun, Sunday, party.

Lots of toys, too much food and lots of smiles, just what a little boy should have on his 5th Birthday.



Scramble net madness

Nicola mentioned how fun a scramble net might be for the boys and again another simple statement turns into a project.
After some ebay research which concluded in some very small, tatty, old examples, I hit on a better and must more satisfying solution, build one myself. How difficult can it be. Honestly, not very. Ebay solved my rope issue, 100 metres, £20, done. Youtube showed the basics, then just time and some effort.
Don’t underestimate the amount of rope you’ll use, rope has an amazing ability to shrink, when you add a knot, add 30 and it’s half its initial length. I left extra for this very reason but could have done with more.
