90 minutes is certainly not to be sniffed at and their sand gardens game sounds really artistic. What creative children you have! It is great when they get into a groove of being outside and stop asking for stuff for a while.

This post is so me, it sounds just like our time in the garden :-) You garden a bit, supervise your mini gardners, referee the odd game etc etc. Oh and sand pits, what is it about sand, magical stuff for entertaining the kiddies, I still remember loving the stuff when I was little :-)


That's 90 minutes more than I managed, and I don't have littlies.

you blog is so informative and full of fun ideas. I just cannot get enough of it. Looking forward to your next post


I dont miss thedays when I tried to find a way of getting time in the garden. Now I find myself wondering when I will see my eldest - treasure the time with them while you have it


Lia - their creativity knows no bounds - especially when it comes to excuses

SS - I too love a sandpit - if I'm honest this one was built for my nostalgia as much as it was built for the children

Jo - it was definitely an aberration - I don't expect it to be repeated much

MiniGolfNJ - Thanks so much for dropping by - and the kind words

Helen - 'treasure it' is very much on my 'to do' list. I do try!


Sand gardens is just the beginning.
Just think how much longer it would keep them amused (and educated) if they buried other things in the sandpit.
Perhaps some non-recyclable rubbish - they could then learn about landfill.

Or any passing domestic pets - they would then be fully au fait with wriggling, sharp clawed creatures.

Or perhaps their mother's wine supply - just so they can experience rage and, perhaps, desperation.

Maybe an entire room's worth of furniture - just in case they need to excavate and equip a nuclear bunker at some point.

So many opportunities: you must be terribly pleased that I am here to point you in the right direction.


James - that was very amusing - until you mentioned the wine. You are not allowed to talk to my children - EVER!


90 minutes? they are getting old!
