  7. Great giveaway and yes it is wet today! I tend keep myself busy in the house doing all the jobs I don't want to do when it is sunny! Like sorting through my wardrobe, hoovering around all the edges and corners of rooms etc. It means that when it is sunny - I know they are done and don't feel bad about relaxing in the garden. I also spend more time cooking - I often cook from scratch when it is dull and wet as it takes longer and the time passes more quickly! Plus it is satisfying and rewarding!

    I used to keep a box of things for making pictures; paper, card, wool, shiny things, buttons, stamps. pictures cut out of magazines and catalogues, pens, paints, glue. We did lots of messy stuff which always goes down well although you need plenty of time to spend doing it and clearing up afterwards! I doubt my son will do the same with his children, which is why they need a Granny!

  79. building a den by draping sheets over the furnature or over a clothes horse is always a good way to keep little ones entertained. As is making some playdough with flour, salt and food colouring and letting them bash it to bits with the rolling pin. Another good one if it's too miserable to get the paddling pool out is to put a couple of inches of water in the bath, get loads of water toys and let them splash, squirt and pour to their hearts content @piperanddaisy
