This clock is twenty years old this week. It was presented to me by friends when I left the urban aid project I was a volunteer in. It was a great project, offered groups to all age groups. I think the clubs we ran during the school holidays for an average of a hundred and fifty children each session staffed by an average of eight adult volunteers was the most fun. I got to compère one show that we put on dressed as Andy Pandy, and we did Thriller by Michael Jackson as one of the songs. We dressed all the children up as characters from the video, complete with the hair and make up. We did get some funny looks when we took them to the chip shop later on still in costume, happy days.

Today we took the geocaching experience one step further and placed our first cache. It was placed in remembrance of Shorty Dog who passed away two years ago. I did a post on the experience here if you want a read. You can follow the cache and see who has found it here if you wish

This is the day daughter brings the twins round while the other two are at Guides and Cub's. Here is Minky sat on Granddads knee playing with a toy. He has a tickly spot and if you tickle him he giggles and giggles, so cute.
On Thursday we went to place our second cache in memory of Shorty, and decided to do some caching while we were at it. The children love it and like to hunt and try and work out the location. Fifi did really well finding them. Did a blog post on our evening here. They also got chance to throw stones in the river. You can follow this cache here if you want to see who finds it.

When commenting on Jenny's 365 last week I also read and commenting on another post. Her Mars Bar flapjacks look very nice, and a great way to get oats into hubby. Oats are a great slow release carb, so go ideal with the quick release sugar in the Mars Bar. I added some sultanas for something a bit different. These were delicious, and I will make them again.

Got a shout from Tots100 to see if I wanted a bedroom in a box from Dulux. Bob picked the jungle theme, it turned up nice and quick. My project this week will be helping to sort Bob's room so we can empty most of it out ready. Comes with the wall frieze in twelve sections, the paste to apply it with, paint for the walls and the woodwork as well as brushes. A great concept.
