Only 1

Well I said I was going to scrap last night, and I did... but I only got 1 very simple LO done. I got distracted by The Empress' New Clothes, which wasn't great, but still managed to get me watching! This LO is of Oliver and one of the remote control vehicles he got for Christmas. He has had some form of remote control vehicle from Santa for the past 3 years, normally a Subaru, and normally because Rob wants one!!! The first Subaru was dropped so many times as Oliver insisted on carrying it around, that it gave up the ghost. The second Subaru met a watery end after being thrown in the paddling pool, along with a talking Thomas. Last year's Subaru, was crashed into so many obstacles that it fell apart, and after visiting the repair shop (daddy with the superglue) a number of times, it was made up of more glues than anything else. This year he got a quad bike and a Subaru, and when we took him to the park on Boxing Day, we were all amazed to find that Oliver can now use the remote control properly. Now the only problem we have is that he drives the cars around the park so many times we are going through batteries like there is no tomorrow!!!
The HS:MS prompt for today is 'three', and today's photo is courtesy of Oliver and his strange little ways. I am sure the mums of boys will be able to identify with this... finding random toys in the most unlikely of places around the house. Today I found this group of 3 mini dinosaurs on the front window sill. I'm not quite sure why they are arranged as they are, but to the untrained eye it would seem as though one is eating the head of an other, whilst the other is sniffing his nether regions!!! I am sure in the mind of a 4 year old, there is a very interesting story happening here.

Tomorrow is Cheadle crop day, so tonight will be spent stash selecting... I am so determined not to take everything, so I really need to have some kind of idea of what I am going to do!!!
