The rambling part…
A quiet morning this morning lounging round the apartment and then we went to visit the inside of the castle.
The back of the castle is all the apartments which can be rented – the front is partly open to the public and full of old-fashioned curiosities – and another part is still lived in by the owners. One of the main reasons for going through the interior of the castle was to show Dx the old fashioned Victoriana there – the old carpet sweepers, washing tubs and mangels as we know he will be doing this topic at school this year.
We took lots of photos for him to take into school when they cover it and he was pretty interested (which surprised us ) but the older three who have already covered all this were bored and glad to get through to the slot machines!
As they were only 2p a go they were able to amuse themselves to their heart’s content on old-fashioned pinball, puppet shows and the like.
Then another fierce battle on the air hockey before lunch.
Yesterday’s nap didn’t seem to have eased the bad tempers of the two oldest boys so we let them (aka forced them!) to have another nap today. They obviously needed it as both the oldest two needed to be woken after two hours.
Then it was time to get dressed up and made up for the Halloween party – courtesy of a very skilled face painter.
Lx and Sx got to help the magician at the Halloween party – and all had a wonderful time.
