With so many frogs we felt certain to find plenty frog spawn but we had no such look. On the way back to the car we saw quite a lot mating. Perhaps we are just too early. We will go back in a couple of weeks.
Craig came home from work early today to practice his saxophone and to show us his new acquisition - a keyboard! I do get sick of him dragging things in which he uses/plays for a few weeks and then never looks at again but I'm quite pleased about the keyboard. I have wanted to take up piano again for a few years but was unable to before because I could only practice at night and that would wake the children. The keyboard has the benefit of a volume switch so it could be perfect! I'm also pleased that it is another instrument in the house for the children to familiarise themselves with. If Hermione expresses interest in taking up playing an instrument seriously I think we have reached the age and stage now were I would be willing to invest in music lessons.
They have now headed off to bed ever so excited as they are going to see Bratz Passion for Fashion World Tour at Newcastle Arena tomorrow. We didn't tell them about it till today as we couldn't possibly have stood the hype for too long.
