Crop night

Last night was the Cheadle crop. It was not a particularly productive one for me though... I have caught man flu! Ok so I only have a sore throat, but if Rob can call his flu then so can I!
I got 3/4 of a LO done, but forgot my stamps so had to finish the LO this morning whilst Harry had his nap.
Last Saturday we went to see Harry and the Bucket Full of Dinosaurs at the theatre. We went with our friends Jackie and Elijah, and met Jen and James there. The show was 'interesting', especially as Nanna was a lot younger and more sprightly than she should have been, Harry was the same size as Nanna, had bright orange hair, and was played by a woman.... shhhhhhhhh, don't tell Oliver, he has no idea bless him. When Rob asked about Harry being a woman, Oliver soon corrected him and told him that Harry is a boy. However, Oliver is at that stage where he does question quite a lot of things. He asked why Patsy was behind the bush and not on the stage... I told him it was because she was too big to be on the stage. He then asked why Trike wasn't Pterence were not on the stage, before I had chance to answer, he said very loudly 'because they aren't too big to be on the stage'. So how do you answer that! Then when Sid's head fell out of the bucket, strangely he didn't question why there was only a head... he wanted to know why he wasn't in the bucket. I said maybe there wasn't much room and the others had pushed him out... BIG mistake, because he then kept asking why the others wouldn't let him in the bucket!!! Sometimes I think you are best ignoring kids questions...LOL!!!
Anyway, here is the LO that I did... using photos taken by Jen (thank you). I did take photos, but as I was there earlier than Jen I heard the 'no photography allowed' announcement, so was discreet in taking mine... which resulted in photos of the big hairy man in front of me, and not much of the stage! Jen on the other hand missed the announcement so was quite brazen in getting her fabby pics:) We are still in the morning, and Harry has already had 2 changes of clothes *rolls eyes*. First thing he decided that the kitchen bin made a good baby walker... fine, no problem... let him push it around, he's doing no harm. I did think that maybe licking the bin was a little bit wrong, but still it kept him quiet so let him be.....then he worked out how to get in the bin and pulled out loads of yak rubbish and wiped it all over his clothes!!! So a wash and a clothes change later, and he decides to empty his changing bag. No problem I foolishly thought... forgetting about the large tub of sudocrem!!! So a little while later, and I come downstairs from a quick nip to the loo, and he is smearing cream all over the floor and the chair, and himself!!! So now we are on the third lot of clothes, and he is being watched like a hawk...LOL!!! Anyone want a Harry bear for a day/week/month/until he is 18???

Onto HS:MS and the prompt today is 'cup'. The grown up cups in this house are mainly plain white, we have the usual mix and match of cups too (the ones you give tradesmen). We have baby cups of every spout variety, all bought in a bid to get Harry to drink water or juice. We also have this cup... bought for Oliver when everything had to be Thomas. He still uses it to have his hot chocolate in... although not when his friends are round, as that would be far too uncool! Tonight I am a single parent as Rob is out with his work colleagues. They are going to see Dave Spikey at the Plaza, which is all well and good, but means that he will be quoting from him for the next few days, which is fine if you were there and can share the humour... but is really blimmin annoying if you weren't there!!! I was planning to get some scrapping done, and now I definitely will be as the DIVINE scarlet Lime kit arrived this morning. It has to be the best yet in my opinion, and will be perfect for a class I have to do... will post pics when I am allowed to share:)

Love the LO, can just imagine you sniggering to yourself as Jen took photos!

I loved those cups when mine were smaller, think we still have a tweenies one hidden somewhere...

Im guessing Jen knew - youre right - shes just brazen Haha!

Sounds like a quiet day with Harry!!! I'm almost tempted to take you up on the offer and look after him myself. Nick & I have always said what we're missing since the chicken died, is a Harry to keep us company :)

Fancy setting up your little man like that - the sudocreme, the paint - you did it all didn't you and then blamed poor Harry for our entertainment??

Don't believe he'd do any of that after meeting him this morning! :D :D :D
