Hello friends and family. It has been a long 4 weeks since the last dispatch. Our house was visited by chicken pox which lasted TWO AND A HALF WEEKS. I tried to make things "fun" for the kids while they were sick but was a bit too enthusiastic about it. Emma corrected me though. I was getting some tea party together or something, babbling about what fun we could have at home when she cut in with a wail: "Why are you trying to have fun when I am sick! It's not FAIR!" So we spent the rest of the day like this:
After cutting various holes in the wall upstairs and down, we found it. Turned out to be a punctured a water pipe. Happened when Daddy and cousin Ben put in wood floors upstairs. Could happen to anyone (heh heh). The leak had been intermitten because we heat with a wood stove mostly. There you go. But wielding a saws all can be dangerously addictive. Once you start you just want to keep going. I needed to talk myself down. Then we got a plumber and now we have no leak, but we do have a great assortment of holes.
After a few days we got ourselves together and did some fun stuff.
We actually spent almost a whole morning doing colour expirements with salt and food colouring then pouring it into layers in jars, making bean flour cookies (ran out of regular stuff) and geting crafty.
