Stone Sculpture

max & monument (508x640)

Every Saturday on our way to Kumon and back home again, Little Yum-Yum and I pass this sculpture.

Not quite sure what it’s supposed to be, but it now sits where a lovely water fountain used to be. I remember it being there when I was going to school, so I’m not sure why it has been decided to replace it. Maybe to save on water, as Londoners are once again, on a hosepipe ban.

Max being Max is curious about pretty much any and everything, so actually went up to it to touch it on this occasion. Unfortunately, there is no write up about it, so I cannot say what it’s supposed to be.

One thing Max and I really do love about London, are the random things which seem to pop up out of nowhere!

Gone Fishing

Whilst playing in the garden, I noticed Little Yum-Yum concentrating on hard something; something I couldn’t figure out. I approached him and asked what it was he was doing. “I’m fishing, mummy!” he said with a broad smile on his face. He had made a fishing rod from a strip of a long dry leaf.

I then asked him if he had caught anything, by which he replied he had caught a fish. The fish being a flower which had dried out, that he had simply attached to the ‘rod’. I so enjoy watching this little one at play.

A Gift

During the Easter break, Little Yum-Yum and I were unwell, so we didn’t get up to much. He was unwell for a few days, whilst I was for the duration. I tried to make it fun for him, but with little success.

It’s just the two of us, so when he told me I didn’t spend enough time with him, I felt really bad. However, a thought came to mind … what if I bought himĀ a gift? *Cackle*. Surely that would make up for at least some of the lost time?

I came across this remote control car and he loves it! I told him I was sorry that we didn’t do many activities as we would normally, but he was too distracted with his new toy. I think I just about got away with it this time!

Game Time

Little Yum-Yum loves to play Four in a Row/Connect Four, but he’s such a cheat! Red is his favourite colour, so I always have to use the yellow counters. What you can see here is his version of the game; every time I drop a counter, he follows and drops one on top as he believes he is ‘trapping’ me in.

I’ve tried to explain this is not how the game is played, but he is adamant it is. So for now, I’ll just let him play it his way – after all, it’s all about having fun.
