James spent most of Saturday with Grandma and Grandad. it's not that he needs much of an excuse to see them, but has he had not seen them for a couple of weeks he was all the more excited about going, even behaving at bathtime the night before!
the latest project for James and Grandad is some bird tables, along with putting some new plants in. in regards of building bird tables, well, i doubt that i was ever trusted with even this kind of power tool!
given the real equipment, mind, i would probably have a go at drilling and sawing very much like this. i gather that this would be the incorrect, and perhaps, unsafe way to do it. all this DIY business does not seem to have much in the way of a margin for experimenting!
don't you just love this picture? i mean, is it me, or is James having a quick practice swing to see what might happen if he decided to accidentally kick the tin of paint?
and here we are putting some nice plants in. apparently James picked out some nice purple ones to do, because purple ones are Mummy's favourites!
yep, doing the barrow work was usually the one job i was "trusted" to do in and about the garden with my Grandad, James!!
and finally, a picture i really like! mindful of the fact that yes, it shows that he is probably due a haircut, doesn't it just look like a class 80's style thing going on?
not sure if James is particularly happy with this look, but up to now he just demands that quality music like Duran Duran and Frankie Goes To Hollywood is switched off in the car!!
be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
